  • BE’s football woes not deadly

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The news last week that Bullitt East had self-reported itself to the Kentucky High School Athletic Association didn’t really come as a huge surprise.

    The whirlwind romance of getting senior soccer player Christian Foster into uniform and onto the field was quick. Many wondered aloud if all the details had been worked out.

    Obviously, it worked on the field as in her first game Foster kicked eight extra points in eight tries. She also recovered an on-sides kick.

  • Lady Chargers get the best of Central 9-0

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Getting four goals from senior Christian Foster, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers had no trouble on Tuesday turning back Bullitt Central 9-0 in girls’ soccer action.

    Foster, who by the end of the week had scored 42 goals in 16 games, was all over the field a night after scoring three times in a 4-3 loss to district rival Mercy.

  • BE’s Battistotti takes fifth at regional golf

     FORT KNOX – Bullitt East senior Margherita Battistotti, a foreign exchange student from Italy, fired an 86 in wet conditions on Monday to finish fifth in the Girls’ Region Three Tournament at Lindsey Golf Course located at Fort Knox.

    That finish earned Battistotti a spot in next week’s Kentucky State Tournament on Tuesday and Wednesday at the Bowling Green Country Club. Battistotti is the first Bullitt East female golfer to reach the state tournament since Olivia Pruitt in 2013.

  • Regional golf action set for Monday and Tuesday

        SHEPHERDSVILLE – Golf will grab center stage this week as the first fall sport to move into the post-season enters regional play on Monday and Tuesday.
        All of the Bullitt County programs that will have teams taking part will be playing at Lindsay Golf Course which is located at Fort Knox.

  • Thank goodness for the ‘mercy’ rule in BE rout

        BARDSTOWN -- The only group that may have been unhappy with Bullitt East’s 69-0 victory over the Nelson County Cardinals was the school’s cheerleading team.
        The score meant that the cheer squad had to do 376 jumping jacks -- one for each point scored by the Chargers.
        On the field, head coach Mark Sander has been getting the feeling that his young squad and the new coaching staff are starting to put it all together.

  • Eagles make just enough big plays to halt BC

        HEBRON ESTATES – Coming up big on defense, including stopping Bullitt Central three times on fourth down inside their own 25-yard line over the final 16 minutes of the game, the North Bullitt Eagles held on Friday to beat the Cougars 21-14 in the 41st renewal of The Game.

  • Pair of 4-1 teams set to clash at North on Friday

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The Game.

    The first game in district play.

    The first game toward the Bullitt Cup.

    The only game of the season against your biggest rival.

  • East faces Nelson in district opener

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – After shedding a huge monkey off of their backs last week in getting the first win under head coach Mark Sander, the Bullitt East Chargers can get a jump in the Class 5-A, District 3 race on Friday when they travel to Bardstown to take on Nelson County.

  • Charger Homecoming Court

      Bullitt East celebrated its 2016 Football Homecoming on Friday with the crowning of seniors Connor Green and Megan Lancaster as the King and Queen.

    Green is the son of Kim and Darryll Green.

    Lancaster, the daughter of Becky Lancaster and Eric and Patti Lancaster, could not attend the ceremony after being involved recently in a serious car accident.

    Representing Lancaster on Friday were her older sister, Cassie Lancaster, along with Kelsey Castle, Megan's best friend and Co-Captain of the Girls' Soccer Team with Lancaster.

  • Lady Chargers still can’t get past Mercy

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – After a 3-3 first half that nobody expected, Bullitt East and Mercy settled into a second half dogfight in what is becoming one of the most anticipated battles in the Sixth Region.

    Finally, with the clock ticking below three minutes, Mercy earned a corner kick. The ball went into the box and Bullitt East pushed it out only to have Mercy sophomore Jillian Fries kick the ball along the ground where it slightly deflected off a Bullitt East defender and then easily past Bullitt East goalie Ninia Embry.
