  • Chargers hope to bounce back from unfulfilling season

     MOUNT WASHINGTON –Coming off a season in which the team won just four games, the lowest total in a dozen years under head coach Mike Brangers, the Bullitt East Chargers are looking to get back to a winning formula this year.

    The team has nine seniors and Brangers is looking for an improved output from his team…if it can stay healthy. It was injuries that took the starch out of the team in 2014.

      SHEPHERDSVILLE –’Winning’ and ‘soccer’ are not two words that appear in the same sentence very often when it comes to the Bullittt Centrla boys’ program.

    A year ago the Cougars won just four games and two of those wins came against Evangel. The best news was that the Cougars did win a post-season game, but that was only after they had the number four seed and beat fifth-seeded Evangel in the opening game of the 24th District Tournament.

    But the smell is apparently a little sweeter for nearby property owners.

    The city has worked to resolve issues since a June council meeting, which included a number of residents addressing the situation.

  • No major changes for the long-time league in 2015

    Following a year in which the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League saw one of its biggest changes of the past decade (shifting the ‘A’ Division from nine teams to six and making it more along the lines of middle school football), the league is pretty much operating without change on the eve of the start of the season Saturday.

  • BE’s Davenport follows baseball pipeline to Spalding

     MOUNT WASHINGTON –Life is good when the college that you want to attend, wants you.

    That was the story earlier this summer for Bullitt East senior pitcher Hayden Davenport when Spalding University head coach Jeremy Sleetlinger came calling. The Golden Eagles were exactly the school that Davenport was looking to attend.

    That desire had been present since former Bullitt East teammate Jacob Woodruff joined the Spalding program two years ago. A year ago, Bullitt East pitcher Chase Patton also joined the Golden Eagles’ program.

    According to Goodman, the construction drawings for the park had been completed.

  • Price may determine immediate fate of remodeling vs. two new school buildings

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- The planning for renovation work at two elementary schools had already been put into place.

    Principals at Maryville and Mount Washington Elementary schools had worked with staff members, central office personnel and architects to devise a way that massive renovation work could be done while classes were in session.

    However, as each of the projects came in well over budget, the future of the work could be in doubt.
