Bullitt County Night at regional left BE standing

 HIGHVIEW – It was a historic night for Bullitt County sports on Wednesday as all three local soccer programs played in the semi-finals of the Girls’ Sixth Region Tournament at Mercy High School.

While all three teams had made the regional tournament the year before, this was the first time all three won opening round games. In fact, it is the first time in any sport that all three Bullitt County schools have reached such a lofty spot in the post-season at the same time.
