  • Board reversal classy move on members' part

  • Mayes back in coaching with North boys' soccer

        HEBRON ESTATES - It is a new era for the North Bullitt boys’ soccer program with new head coach Scott Mayes taking over a program that has had very little success over the past decade.

        This is not the first head coaching job for Mayes, but it is about a 360-degree change from his previous job coaching the Lady Eagle softball team. Mayes stepped down from that job two years ago to concentrate on finishing his educational requirements.

        Now, the coach is back with the sport that he played as a teenager.

    It was a good way to star the season for second-year Bullitt Central head coach Jennifer Romine.

  • Barren first for BC

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - The Bullitt Central Cougars will open the 2010 season deep in central Kentucky on Friday as they travel to Glasgow to take on Barren County.

    A year ago, the Cougars beat the Trojans 21-7, but that was a mature and experienced Bullitt Central squad playing at home. This year, the maroon and gray are in a major rebuilding job.

    Adding to the question marks for veteran head coach Danny Leasor is that Barren County already has a game under it’s belt, beating Metcalfe County 35-0 last Saturday.
