  • Eagles ride wave of momentum into opener

        HEBRON ESTATES - Riding a wonderful wave of momentum, the North Bullitt Eagles will enter the Class 4-A play-offs on Friday against Valley, the number three seed from District 4.

        The Vikings are 4-6 this season and their four wins have come against four of the worst teams in the area. Still, this is a Viking squad that might be more impressive with the way they played in a handful of losses, particularly late in the season.

    The stingrays will swim in their own private aquarium located in the school’s front office. Pate said the aquarium was donated via craigslist.

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - The six Bullitt County cross-country teams will find out on Saturday just how much progress they have made this season as they roll into regional competition coming off perhaps the best overall season the sport has ever had locally.

        Four of the six teams have chances of qualifying as a team for next week’s Kentucky State Cross-Country Championships in Lexington. Even the back-up plan would have five of the six teams qualifying at least one individual for the big show.

  • Eagles' defense makes huge statement

        HEBRON ESTATES - The North Bullitt Eagles have gotten a lot of attention over the second half of the 2010 football season because of a powerful running attack.

    PIONEER VILLAGE - A Maryville Elementary student was praised by local police officers for his honesty.

    Mark Wright received a congratulatory visit at school from Hillview Police Chief Glenn Caple after returning a police camera.

    Wright discovered the camera near a wooded area by the school. He was practicing golf at the time with an after-school Boys Club program offered by PE instructor Dennis Minnis.

    “I hit a golf ball and I went to get it and it was next to a camera,” Wright said.

  • Old Mill caps perfect season with 19-8 title

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - Coming into the season, head coach Garry Polson felt his Old Mill Bengals were capable of winning the B division championship for the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football league.

        Using a strong ground game and a stingy defense, the Bengals capped off an undefeated season by defeating cross-town rivals Mount Washington 19-8 on Saturday.

  • Zappos helps to get year off on the right foot for kids

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - As Stefanie Walls of Zappos Fulfillment Centers will tell you, a comfortable, stylish, new pair of shoes is essential for looking and feeling your best.

        Unfortunately, during these tough economic times, it’s difficult for many families to put food on the table and pay the mortgage, much less spend $50 on a pair of shoes.

  • Cougars face a tough Dragon team

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - The Bullitt Central Cougars will have something to prove on Friday when they take on visiting South Oldham in the first-round of the Class 5-A play-offs.

        First and foremost, the maroon and gray have to bounce back from a pair of losses that ended the regular season. The Cougars fell 52-7 to John Hardin and then dropped a 21-10 decision to North Bullitt last week. Bullitt Central also must prove that last season’s 63-13 loss to Jeffersontown in the first-round of the play-offs was an anomaly.
