  • Post-season play for soccer teams starts Monday

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- The high school soccer post-season in the area will start with a big bang on Monday when North Bullitt and Bullitt Central clash in the opening round of the 23rd District Tournament at Moore High School.

    In the only meeting between the two rivals this season, North Bullitt pulled out a 3-1 victory in a hotly contested game at Bullitt Central.

    This will be the first meeting between the two rivals in the post-season since 2012. North Bullitt won that meeting 2-0 in the first year of the present alignment.

  • Weather finally relents for BC’s passing attack

     BUCKNER – Mother Nature finally smiled on the Cougars Friday and Bullitt Central responded with another huge offensive performance as they beat district rival Oldham County 42-24.

    The win snapped a three game losing streak and kept coach Tye Lawson’s team in the hunt for a post-season berth with two games remaining in the regular season.

  • Eagles regain focus at halftime; beat Nelson

     BARDSTOWN – First-year North Bullitt head coach Adam Billings admitted that his halftime talk on Friday of the team’s game against district rival Nelson County was short on details and long on emotion.

    This was not the first fiery speech that the coach had ever given, but this was a time when the Eagle players took the speech to heart and transferred that emotion to the field in the second half.

  • Dragons breath fire to end Chargers’ win streak

     CRESTWOOD – Things were so bad for the Bullitt East Chargers on Friday that they actually had to start on Thursday.

    It was on the final practice before the game against South Oldham when Charger head coach Darrell Vincent found out that junior quarterback Zack Kessler would not be able to play on Friday. Kessler, who already missed games earlier in the season with a shoulder injury, was still complaining about soreness there and a new inspection raised the concern of a broken bone.

  • East gets first shot at beating South Oldham

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Bullitt East will get the first shot at South Oldham this Friday as the Class 5-A, District 3 slate passes the halfway point.

    Over the final three weeks of district play South Oldham will face the three Bullitt County schools on consecutive Fridays. After Bullitt East this week, the Dragons will take on Bullitt Central and then finish with North Bullitt.

  • North secures No. 1 seed

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The outcome was never really in doubt, but it was still a celebration worth having after the North Bullitt Lady Eagles once again wrapped up the top seed for next week’s 23rd District Girls’ Soccer Tournament.

    By beating Bullitt Central 11-1, the Lady Eagles once again were undefeated within the district during the regular season. It is the fourth straight year, all four years of this alignment, that the green and gold have had the number one seed for the district tournament.

  • Lady Eagles get second net victory over Central

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Volleyball is really the only remaining sport where the three Bullitt County teams take the court against each other, each year, on a home-and-home basis.

    That is good for fans, but no longer means that the games are played for anything more than pride.

    That was the case on Tuesday of last week when North Bullitt traveled to Bullitt Central for the second meeting. In fact, it is probably the second of three meetings this fall between the 23rd District rivals.

  • BC’s Phillips has her best CC finish

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – With the high school cross-country season entering the final month, Bullitt Central senior Kelsey Phillips had an impressive run on Saturday, running through wet conditions at Tom Sawyer State Park in eastern Jefferson County to take first place in the Open Girls Race of the Greater Louisville Classic.

  • East boys ready to tee it up Tuesday at state golf

    MOUNT WASHINGTON – After playing a practice round on Monday, the Bullitt East Chargers will open play on Tuesday in the Leachman Buick-GMC-Cadillac/KHSAA Boys’ State Golf Tournament.

    Bullitt East will be competing at the Bowling Green Country Club which has a par-72 score over 6,795 yards.

  • Rain gets the best of all but E-town golfers

    CEDAR GROVE – Elizabethtown was the big winner on Tuesday at the Girls’ Third Region Golf Tournament at Heritage Hill Golf Course, but not until Mother Nature got in a few swings of her own.

    Playing in steady rain all day, the top female high school golfers in the area had a long day of slow play despite being able to ‘lift, clean and place’ any shots in the fairways under the brutal conditions.
