  • Mercy shows BE that work remains

     LOUISVILLE – The Bullitt East Lady Chargers learned on Monday night what they already knew – that the Mercy Jaguars are nearly unbeatable when it comes to volleyball.

    What Bullitt East head coach Ed Fisher hopes the team learned from a lopsided loss is the importance of the other games within the 24th District. Beat Fern Creek and Whitefield Academy later in the season (they have already beaten Jeffersontown), and the Lady Chargers won’t have to face the Jaguars until the district final and then possibly the Sixth Region final.

  • Sacred Heart regains control of Bluegrass

     CEDAR GROVE – Back on top.

    The event, which is basically the Bullitt East Lady Charger Invitational, had a top-flight field of 18 teams with 98 players taking part. With that type of participation and the length of the course, the event was a Tier 1 competition with All-State points going to the top players. 

  • Griffee tabbed as finance director

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - For the past seven years, Bullitt County Judge/Executive Melanie Roberts has been advocating the creation of the position for financial officer.

    With a population nearing 80,000 and with a budget of over $22 million, Roberts said county government should be run like a business.

    After getting the position funded in the 2014-15 budget, Roberts cleared the final hurdle on Tuesday.

  • Cougars looking to send Leasor out with wins

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Veteran Bullitt Central head football coach Danny Leasor has already announced that this will be his final season leading the Cougars, but the coach doesn’t want any farewell tour.

    Fortunately, the Cougars, behind a powerful senior class of 15 players, has the ability to provide just that this fall.

  • Hopefully, all three will be playing this Friday

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Two of the three Bullitt County football teams have yet to play a game this season and already two of the squads have lost players for the season to injuries.

    At North Bullitt, senior Dalton Casey, an All-District selection last season and one of the top defensive backs in the area, is out for the season with a knee injury suffered in the scrimmage against Nelson County. After a week waiting for the results of the MRI, it was determined that Casey had torn his ACL and MCL as well as a torn meniscus.
