    Head coach Chad Laswell is finding games wherever he can after the slow start to the season due to bad weather. That included playing two games on Sunday at Bethlehem in a ‘triangle’ event that had originally been scheduled for the previous Saturday.

  • Simpson pitches East past J-town

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – Getting a complete game, three-hitter from junior Garrett Simpson, the Bullitt East Chargers started 24th District play on Tuesday with a 4-2 victory over Jeffersontown.

    With limited ‘game’ experience this spring because of the bad weather, Bullitt East head coach Jeff Bowles was not looking for Simpson to pitch a complete game, but the junior kept his pitch count low so the need never developed for a change.

  • North gets early jump on...

     HIGHVIEW — Forget about the non-district games.

    The road to the Sixth Region baseball tournament revolves about the three district games and the ensuing tournament.

    For North Bullitt, the “real” season started off in fine form on Tuesday.

    The Eagles went to Moore and defeated the Mustangs 13-0 in five innings.

    Normally, when you place four pitchers on the mound, it’s not a good thing. For North Bullitt head coach Brian Wise, it was a great opportunity.

  • Trojans slip past BC in 2-1 duel

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – All spring, Bullitt Central baseball coach G.J. Moore has been lamenting his team’s lack of pitching depth, a situation that has gotten worse, not better, as injuries have slowed the team through the first four weeks of the campaign.

    That situation was highly evident last week despite the fact that the team played just two games. On Tuesday, the Cougars got a strong pitching performance from senior Callon Willet against 23rd District rival Southern, but the Cougars lost a 2-1 decision.

  • NB’s Ludwig & Hines combine...

     HEBRON ESTATES – The week didn’t start out well for the North Bullitt Lady Eagles but it sure did get better as it moved along culminating in a combined perfect game on Friday as the green and gold beat visiting Nelson County 13-0.

    Senior Madison Ludwig got the start and worked the first four innings and did not allow a base runner by Nelson County. Elizabeth Hines then came on and retired all three batters she faced in the fifth inning, ending the game with a line-out to the second baseman.
