  • The KHSAA just cannot please...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The Kentucky High School Athletic Association has a problem.

    The organization that oversees high school sports keeps trying to please everybody. I’ve pretty much learned over the years that when you try to please everyone, that you rarely please anyone.

    While the KHSAA has always been trying to fine-tune everything, the situation seems to be getting worse from within. There seems to be a widening gap in many sports brewing between coaches and administrators (i.e. principals and superintendents).

  • New tennis alignment has area...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Realignment is part of the sports scene at the high school level in Kentucky.

    Normally there is a lot of trepidation and worry anytime there is change. That is just human nature.

    But for the Bullitt County tennis programs, realignment for that sport, which goes into effect this spring the reaction is one of more pure joy.

  • East’s Kruse signs to join...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Despite the fact that she has already twice reached the KHSAA Kentucky State Tennis Tournament, Bullitt East senior Savannah Kruse had no trouble deciding on taking another route with her college athletic choice.

    The ‘other’ sport in Kruse’s life is volleyball and it was that sport that she chose to follow when she signed to attend Spalding University in Louisville starting in August. Kruse made it all official at a large signing ceremony at Bullitt East a few months ago.

  • Chargers’ big finish comes up...

     SHIVELY – Bullitt East’s sizzling late season run came up a win short of the promised land on Saturday as the Chargers’ lost in the championship game of the Boys’ Sixth Region Tournament to Butler 52-48.

    It was the first time since 2016 that Bullitt East reached the regional final. In that year, the Chargers lost to Doss by four points. The red and gold have not won a regional title since 2012.

  • What a memorable week

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Admit it.

    At some point during the high school post-season, we all caught ourselves dreaming of an All-Bullitt County final in the Sixth Region Boys’ Basketball Tournament.

    If not that, then you were thinking of Bullitt East going two-for-two and getting both teams to a Kentucky State Tournament.

  • Winter sports updates

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – With the winter sports’ season now complete for area programs, a few tidbits need to be noted that might have slipped through the cracks.

    Even in today’s computer generated world, mistakes do happen.

  • Butler ends North’s season

     SHIVELY — North Bullitt did get off to a 4-0 start in Tuesday’s opening game against Butler in the Sixth Region girls’ tournament.

    And the Lady Eagles outscored the host Bearettes 25-14 in the second half.

    The problem is that during the 14 minutes in between, Butler outscored North Bullitt 48-6 en route to a 62-35 victory.

    The loss closed out the North Bullitt season with a 16-16 mark.

  • East rolls past Holy Cross

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – It might not have been as easy as expected, but the Bullitt East Lady Chargers moved ahead early in the second quarter and then cruised past visiting Holy Cross on Tuesday in the opening round of the Girls’ Sixth Region Tournament.

    The victory moved the Lady Chargers into Friday’s semi-finals where they were to take on Butler (see page A-20).

    Holy Cross, the runners-up in the 21st District, came into the game with only an 11-16 record on the season. Still, the Lady Cougars led 12-11 at one quarter.

  • Lady Chargers go cold against...

     SHIVELY – There is never a good time to have a bad shooting night, but that goes double in the post-season.

    Just ask the Bullitt East Lady Chargers as they saw a magicallseason end on Friday with a 39-35 loss to Butler in the semi-finals of the Girls’ Sixth Region Tournament at Valley High School in a game with a lot more grit and grim than grace.
