  • East volleyball far from perfect as Mercy sweeps

        The loss snapped Bullitt Central’s four game winning streak, but it was a good indicator of where the Cougars stand heading into the important district games starting this Friday when the maroon and gray travel to North Bullitt. A week later the team plays host to Bullitt East.

  • Rockets again end Eagles’ early success

        SHELBYVILLE -- In week three of the playoffs, North Bullitt could be facing a tough, physical, well-coached football team.

        Despite a 48-23 setback in Shelbyville, Billings was upbeat.

        For the game, the Jefferson County Chargers had just three first downs and except for a long pass play that ended up in the endzone being called back for a holding penalty, Jeffersontown didn’t come close to scoring.
        Bullitt Central was up 7-0 at halftime and then slowly pulled away in the second half.
