  • Lady Chargers sweep first round with NB and BC

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Unfortunately, volleyball in Bullitt County is the last of a dying breed in one important aspect -- the sport is the last in which all three local programs still play each other home-and-away during the regular season.

    The first rotation of games started last Tuesday when Bullitt East defeated North Bullitt 3-0. On Monday of this week, the Lady Chargers were at home again and defeated Bullitt Central 3-1.

    On Thursday, North Bullitt and Bullitt Central will clash in an important 23rd District match in Shepherdsville.

  • Chargers start slow, then roll past Bears

    TAYLORSVILLE – Scoring in the final minute of the first half and then matching that with another touchdown less than two minutes into the second half, the Bullitt East Chargers buried some bad memories on Friday as they rolled past Spencer County 28-7.

  • BC scores 31 in second quarter to rout Valley

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – Exploding for 31 points in the second quarter, the Bullitt Central Cougars on Friday took care of business and defeated a young and inexperienced Valley squad 45-8.

         It really was a no-win situation for the Cougars as they were expected to roll over a Vikings’ squad that had already lost two lopsided games this season. Bullitt Central struggled a little early, but then rose to the occasion and did what was expected of them, winning a game that had a running clock for all of the second half.

  • Honoring the 1994 Team

     At halftime of Friday’s game against Waggener, Bullitt East held a 20th Anniversary Reunion for the 1994 football team that reached the state championship game before falling to Danville.

    At the start, Bullitt East principal Willie Foster, who played on that team, led the players, coaches and family members to the field.

    A special presentation was made to the team’s coach, Mike Egan.


  • NB’s schedule change means full slate of games on Friday

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – North Bullitt’s football schedule change means that there is a full slate of games on Friday for Bullitt County fans.

    In fact, North Bullitt will have the only home game this Friday as they will play host to North Oldham. Bullitt Central makes the short trip to Dixie Highway to take on Valley while Bullitt East will take a visit across Hwy-44 to take on Spencer County in what is a growing rivalry on the gridiron.

  • CC under the lights? BE and BC try it in E-town

     ELIZABETHTOWN – Normally, major Saturday high school cross-country meets are held in the mornings. A few are contested in the afternoon. During the week, some others are held after school.

    Rarely are cross-country meets held after dark.

  • Lady Chargers pull away after halftime to beat NB

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – In the only regular season meeting this fall between two of the top programs in the Sixth Region, Bullitt East kept its slight edge over North Bullitt in girls’ soccer with a 4-0 victory on Monday.

    While this was the only regular season meeting, it may not be the only meeting this season. In each of the past two seasons, the two rivals have ended up meeting in the Sixth Region semi-finals after North Bullitt won the 23rd District title and Bullitt East was the 24th District runner-up.

  • North leads, falters, then rallies for win

    HEBRON ESTATES -- Veteran coach Brett Newton said that the most improvement a team makes is between the first and second games of the season.

  • Defense stifles Wildcats in Charger's victory

    MOUNT WASHINGTON – It took a little time for Bullitt East to get rolling on Friday against visiting Waggener on offense, but the defense never wavered, allowing the Chargers to secure a 42-0 win.

         This wasn’t expected to be a tough outing for the Chargers and for the most part they took care of business. A handful of turnovers in the first half kept the Wildcats within 14-0 at halftime, but the red and gold scored the first time they had the ball in the second half and then kept up the strong play for the quick win.

  • 6-minute surge lifts BC to 2-0

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Since spring practice began back in April, Bullitt Central head coach Danny Leasor has been pushing his team to be in better shape this season so they can take control of games in the fourth quarter.

         Why wait to the fourth quarter?
