  • Cougars play at home for first time since ‘79

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - One of the top goals posted in the Bullitt Central coaches’ office this season was not only to qualify for the post-season, but to compete in the play-offs at home.

    Mission accomplished.

    With an 8-2 record overall and a number two finish in Class 5-A, District 3, the Cougars will play at home on Friday against Jeffersontown. It is the first home play-off game for Bullitt Central since the 1979 season.

  • Rain can't dampen Cougars' run past Eagles

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - The Bullitt Central Cougars looked Mother Nature right in the eye on Friday and didn’t blink, putting together a strong effort in adverse conditions to beat arch-rival North Bullitt 34-14 in the 34th renewal of The Game.

    It was not a fit night for man nor beast, but the Cougars sloshed through the rain and mud to win for the second straight time in the series. Bullitt Central now has a 20-14 edge in a rivalry that dates to 1976.

  • Chargers set to face an old rival in Friday’s first game

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - The Bullitt East Chargers will face a familiar foe on Friday when they play host to Fairdale in the first round of the Class 4-A, Region 2 play-offs.

    The two programs have played numerous games against each other during the regular season in the past. The series extended up to last season when Fairdale beat the Chargers 40-35 in Mount Washington. The teams did not renew the meetings because of situations just like this where they will meet in the post-season.

  • 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.

    As the number four seed, North Bullitt would often be facing teams with 8-2 records or better. Instead, the Eagles will be facing a foe with only a 5-5 mark despite winning District 3 with a 4-0 record.

    Western really loaded up on its non-district schedule.

  • Play-off route set for all teams

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Unlike a year ago when the Class 4-A play-offs were not set until the final minute because of some forfeited games and the bad wind storm that cancelled some games, area football teams are already well aware of where they will open the post-season starting next Friday.

    Class 5-A

    For the first time since 1979, Bullitt Central will host a post-season game next week when the Cougars play host to Jeffersontown, the number three team in District 4.

  • Distant Learning from Dance Diaspora

    Dance Diaspora incorporates diverse musical and dance themes ranging from American styles of Blues, Jazz and Hip Hop to African, Brazilian and Caribbean.

    Traditional Western African songs and instruments are implemented into the presentations, which meet the Kentucky Core Content curriculum requirements.

  • Long line for free vaccines

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Over 1,000 gathered to wait their turn for the free H1N1 vaccinations supplied by the Bullitt County Health Department Tuesday afternoon.

    The H1N1 vaccines, along with seasonal flu shots, were distributed at Paraquet Springs Conference Centre.

    Among those in line were Steve Cox of Mount Washington, who arrived first at noon to save a place for his son, Luke, who turns three next week.

    Cox attended the first H1N1 vaccinations at the Health Department but was not in time to receive a shot. With a day off work, he decided to arrive early.
