  • Mercy shows BE that work remains

     LOUISVILLE – The Bullitt East Lady Chargers learned on Monday night what they already knew – that the Mercy Jaguars are nearly unbeatable when it comes to volleyball.

    What Bullitt East head coach Ed Fisher hopes the team learned from a lopsided loss is the importance of the other games within the 24th District. Beat Fern Creek and Whitefield Academy later in the season (they have already beaten Jeffersontown), and the Lady Chargers won’t have to face the Jaguars until the district final and then possibly the Sixth Region final.

  • Sacred Heart regains control of Bluegrass

     CEDAR GROVE – Back on top.

    For the second time in three years, the Sacred Heart Valkyries won the Bluegrass Invitational on Saturday at Heritage Hill Golf Course.

    The event, which is basically the Bullitt East Lady Charger Invitational, had a top-flight field of 18 teams with 98 players taking part. With that type of participation and the length of the course, the event was a Tier 1 competition with All-State points going to the top players. 

  • Cougars looking to send Leasor out with wins

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Veteran Bullitt Central head football coach Danny Leasor has already announced that this will be his final season leading the Cougars, but the coach doesn’t want any farewell tour.

    Instead, he’ll settle for a good number of wins.

    Fortunately, the Cougars, behind a powerful senior class of 15 players, has the ability to provide just that this fall.

  • Hopefully, all three will be playing this Friday

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Two of the three Bullitt County football teams have yet to play a game this season and already two of the squads have lost players for the season to injuries.

    At North Bullitt, senior Dalton Casey, an All-District selection last season and one of the top defensive backs in the area, is out for the season with a knee injury suffered in the scrimmage against Nelson County. After a week waiting for the results of the MRI, it was determined that Casey had torn his ACL and MCL as well as a torn meniscus.

  • Pioneer News sponsors luncheon in Fern Creek

    FERN CREEK--Metro Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer returned to his roots recently as he was a guest speaker at the Fern Creek Community Association and Chamber of Commerce. The native of the Fern Creek community spoke about some of the accomplishments during his tenure and his plans for the future. The luncheon was sponsored by The Pioneer News, which is a member of the organization.

  • BC boys' soccer growing into a winning program

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – Just two years removed from a season in which the program played nothing more than a glorified junior-varsity schedule, the Bullitt Central boys’ soccer squad is looking for things this fall as they grow and mature into a real ‘team’.

         Bullitt Central now has a pair of seniors, but more importantly, there are 17 players in the top three classes. The entire program has 25 players.

         With the added maturity comes a desire for more success on the field.

  • Boyle withstands determined Charger effort

    STANFORD – Battling a team expected to be among the elite in Kentucky this fall, the Bullitt East Chargers learned a little about themselves on Friday.

         With as many key players on the sidelines not wearing pads as competing on the field, the Chargers showed that determination can overcome some shortcomings due to injuries against even the most challenging foe. Still, in the end on Friday, Bullitt East came up just short, falling to Boyle County 14-6 in the PBK Death Valley Bowl at Lincoln County High School.

  • Lady Cougar soccer plans for success during season

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – The Bullitt Central Lady Cougars have been on a pretty good run in recent seasons, having finished as the 23rd District runners-up to North Bullitt each of the past two seasons.

         They have done that under different coaches as the turnover rate has been higher than anyone would like. Still, that is the situation again this fall as Nora Alexander, who helped some with the team a year ago, has taken over as the head coach.

  • Christmas comes a little early for some
