  • THE WAR!! - Again! So much on the line in a big game

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – There will be no shortage of important things to play for on Friday when Bullitt East rolls into Shepherdsville for the 28th renewal with Bullitt Central of The War.

    Of course, the simple fact that it is Bullitt East against Bullitt Central will bring emotions boiling to the surface. The Chargers have a 19-8 lead in the series. During one stretch, the red and gold won ten straight meetings. Now, over the past nine seasons, the Chargers have only a 5-4 edge.

  • NB set for homecoming Friday

     HEBRON ESTATES – It will be Football Homecoming 2016 at North Bullitt on Friday as the Eagles play host to Class 5-A, District 3 rival Oldham County.

    Every high school football coach wants his plays to enjoy the events leading up to Friday night, but they all worry that a lack of focus can derail big things.

    North Bullitt head coach Adam Billings said he just had one simple message for his team on that topic early this week.

  • 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.
