  • Volleyball post-season starts Monday

     OKOLONA – After completing regular season play this week, the area volleyball programs will enter post-season play on Monday in both the 23rd and 24th Districts.

    Taylor is the first Bullitt East boys’ golfer to compete in three consecutive state tournaments.

  • District soccer play this week

        SHEPHERDSVILLE – In an unprecedented move, the Bullitt Central girls’ soccer program opted not to compete in this week’s 23rd District Tournament at Southern High School.
        Coach Stephanie Porter’s team had completed a full slate of games during the season and had beaten Moore 2-0 and then lost to Bardstown 10-0 on Wednesday of last week.

  • Fast start is more than North needs in easy win

        SHEPHERDSVILLE – Get in!
        Get the job done!
        Go home!
        It was a workmanlike night for the North Bullitt Eagles on Friday as they cruised past a struggling Nelson County team 41-20 on Senior Night for the green and gold.

  • Dragons pull away in second half to beat East

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - The South Oldham Dragons came into Mike Egan Field on Friday night ranked second in the state in Class 5A.
        They left with their undefeated record intact after defeating Bullitt East 52-27.
        Even though Bullitt East gave up two touchdowns off turnovers, the Chargers were only down 28-21 at intermission.
        The home team got off to a quick start, scoring on its opening drive.

  • Mason’s 35 yard kick at :00 lifts BC to win

        SHEPHERDSVILLE – It was a homecoming to remember on Friday as the Bullitt Central Cougars scored twice in the final 3:07 to defeat district-rival Oldham County 10-7.
        In the end, it was a 35 yard field goal from Cougar senior soccer standout Austin Mason as time expired that accounted for the final score and sent the Bullitt Central faithful home in a state of euphoria.

  • It’s home, home and a homecoming on Friday

  • NB runs away from BC

     HEBRON ESTATES – The match was moved back four days, but that had no effect on the outcome as on Saturday North Bullitt beat Bullitt Central 10-0 in a match that ended early in the second half.

    The contest was originally scheduled for Wednesday, but rain in the early afternoon, when the decision had to be made, forced the game back to Saturday at North Bullitt. Because the soccer teams play on the football field at North Bullitt, field conditions and the damage that can be caused is taken into consideration.

  • There’s no ‘good’ draw for Lady Eagle soccer

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – There is no revelation here, but as we head into the post-season for soccer starting on Monday, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles are between a rock and hard place when it comes to the upcoming district and regional brackets.

    First off, North Bullitt could not be a bigger favorite to win the 24th District Tournament set for next Tuesday and Thursday at Bullitt Central. The Lady Eagles have beaten Bullitt Central, Moore and Southern by 10-0 scores in games that ended very early.
