  • Eagles face speedy Western in an opening round contest

    HEBRON ESTATES - While the record for the Western Warriors might not be that impressive this season, that is not deceiving North Bullitt head coach Brett Newton as he prepares his team for the first round of the Class 4-A play-offs on Friday.
