    Mainly, the Lady Chargers just had too much Savannah Glass as the 6-foot-2 senior, five inches taller than any of the North Bullitt players, dominated play at the net.

  • East and Central get soccer wins over North

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – It was a big week for local boys’ soccer fans as the second and third intra-county matches were contested on Tuesday and Thursday.
