  • 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.

  • Hardy, McDaniel 'Rite' choices to be honored

    SHEPHERDSVILLE -- There was just a little "roast" in the dinner served to members and friends of the Bullitt County Scottish Rite.

  • Cedar Grove archers shoot way to World

    CEDAR GROVE--Over a dozen Cedar Grove Elementary School archers qualified for their first National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP) World Tournament in July at the Alliance Energy Conference Center in Madison, WI.

    “This year was our first time to have the whole team qualify for state, nationals, and world,” said teacher and Head Coach Travis Whitworth. “This is the first year our team shot a score over 3,100 as well.”

    Students were on target during the competition scoring 3,000 and placing 13th out of 30 teams.

  • Chargers look for another big post-season run

    MOUNT WASHINGTON – If you are the type fan that bases your hopes for the upcoming season on the returning ‘skill’ position players, then you will love the Bullitt East Chargers heading into the 2014 season.

         If, on the other hand, you look at returning linemen as the basis for the upcoming campaign, then you are probably losing some sleep worrying about the Chargers as they prepare to start play this Friday against Boyle County in the Death Valley Bowl at Lincoln County High School.

  • Rebuilding the word for NB soccer

    HEBRON ESTATES – If you look up the word ‘rebuilding’ in some dictionary in the future, you might just see a picture of Aaron Shaw there.

         The new North Bullitt boys’ soccer coach is facing a ‘rebuilding’ job or enormous proportions after the Eagles graduated 14 seniors from last year’s team. Shaw will start this season with only one senior and most of the rest of the players have no varsity experience at all.

  • Boston returns to coach NB V-ball

     HEBRON ESTATES – You can go home again.

         That is certainly the case for new North Bullitt volleyball coach Cecilia Boston as she takes over the Lady Eagle program that she last played for in 2008.

         Boston is the third coach in the program in as many seasons.

         “It’s been a lot more than I expected,” Boston said before a practice last week. “The girls are better than I thought. I know they have had a lot of coaching turnover.”

    The pair earned their way into the international championship by winning the state qualifier at Fern Valley Strike and Spare in Louisville.
