  • Champs - Lady Chargers win Regional CC crown

     LOUISVILLE – The Bullitt East Lady Chargers introduced themselves to Class AAA with a bang on Saturday, winning the Region 3 title with a powerful performance against some of the top teams in the area.

    Led by sophomore Sierra Poppell, who finished second, the Lady Chargers had four of the top nine runners to finish with 35 points. Defending champion Manual was second 49 points while Male was third with 91 points with Butler was fourth with 93 points.

  • ‘Oh so close’ is just ‘oh-no’ for Bullitt East boys

     LOUISVILLE – There was more than a little disappointment after the boys’ race in the Class AAA, Region 3 Cross-Country Championships for the Bullitt East Chargers.

    Amazingly, the Bullitt East boys’ team didn’t come up a point short of qualifying for this week’s Kentucky State Cross-Country Championships. The Chargers came up zero points short.

  • Cougars get offense back in gear but falls to SO

     CRESTWOOD -- Looking to gain some momentum for a playoff run which starts on Friday, the Bullitt Central Cougars were looking to get back on the winning track Friday on the road.

  • Chargers find energy; easily defeats Dogs

    FAIRDALE -- The beginning may not have been what Bullitt East football coach Darrell Vincent was looking for.

  • BC needs to be on a mission at South Oldham

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Often no more than a tune-up for the opening of the play-offs the following week, this Friday’s final games of the regular season have more importance than normal for Bullitt Central and North Bullitt as they go on the road.

    Tied with Shelby County in the district standings, the Eagles and Cougars need to garner wins if they want any chance to overtake the Rockets for the number two seed and a home play-off game next Friday. With losses, both teams will be on the road next week.

  • BE girls are regional CC contenders

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – For the first time ever, all three Bullitt County cross-country programs will compete in the same regional meet when they take part in the Class AAA, Region 3 Championships on Saturday.

    The move comes after the Kentucky High School Athletic Association realigned the sport across the state last summer. North Bullitt and Bullitt East moved up from Class AA to join Bullitt Central in Class AAA.

  • Black Monday - Regional volleyball is a short week

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – What was hoped to be a long week for Bullitt County volleyball teams, turned into a short week as all three of the local teams lost on Monday in the first-round of the Sixth Region Tournament.

    Bullitt East has had the strongest team in Bullitt County this fall and coming off a win over Whitefield Academy in the 24th District Tournament before falling to Mercy in the final, the Lady Chargers appeared poised for a deep run this week.

  • Turnovers doom Eagles

     HEBRON ESTATES – Saturday afternoon football doesn’t seem to suit the North Bullitt Eagles very well.

    That was the lesson most obvious this past weekend as the green and gold played host to Callow ay County in a non-district game. Despite leading 12-7 midway through the second quarter, the Eagles came up short, falling 35-12 on a blustery afternoon.

  • BC hits a rough patch Friday

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Facing a team in the top 10 in the state’s biggest football classification is tough enough.

    And when you fumble the kickoff on two consecutive plays to open the game, things suddenly got much worse.

    The Bullitt Central Cougars fans may have enjoyed the Senior Night festivities and a spirited halftime performance by the band but there wasn’t much else to cheer for in a 43-7 loss to Simon Kenton.

  • Football pairings to be decided Friday

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – For the second time in three seasons, the final seedings for the post-season in Class 5-A, District 4 won’t be decided until the final night of the regular season.

    That is because Shelby County, North Bullitt and Bullitt Central each finished with a 1-2 record in district play. Bullitt East won the district with a 3-0 mark and already knows that they will play host to North Hardin (1-9) when the play-offs begin on Nov. 8.
