     HEBRON ESTATES – The end of his high school career was becoming a fond memory and the start of college was fast approaching.

    Still, three weeks into August and North Bullitt senior Noah Marion had yet to put his name on the dotted line. He pretty much knew where and what he wanted to do, but he had yet to make it official.

    Finally, after setting up a small gathering in the North Bullitt Media Center, Marion put pen to paper and signed to play baseball at Midway College in central Kentucky.

  • North Bullitt puts it all together to sweep BC

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Past indicators are no guarantee of future success.
