  • BE gets ‘big’ match win

     MOUNT WASHINGTON -- Bullitt East played a match on Wednesday that got a whole lot of people in action on the tennis court.

  • Track playing second fiddle to Mother Nature

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Like all the other spring sports, it has been a difficult start to the season for the area high school track programs.

In fact, early season meets at both Bullitt Central and Bullitt East were canceled due to cold/rainy/snowy conditions back before spring break.
