  • Each area girls’ soccer team wins big opener

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – After the first game of the season for each of the three area girls’ soccer programs, the record stood at a sterling 3-0.

    That run didn’t exactly continue, but it was a good start for each of the teams.

    At least for North Bullitt and Bullitt East, the first two weeks of the regular season is just a warm-up for Monday’s showdown in Mount Washington for the two teams that have been ranked second and third in the Sixth Region for the past four years.

  • Chargers out-rallied by Eastern 36-32 in opener

        MOUNT WASHINGTON – As is often the came in the opening game of the season, especially with a new head coach, the Bullitt East Chargers made a lot of mistakes on Friday as the team began the 2016 season at home against Louisville Eastern High School.
        Conversely, the good news is that the Chargers were still able to put forth a competitive effort. Bullitt East rallied from a 29-20 halftime deficit to move ahead 32-29 with 6:36 left in the game.

  • Cougars reverse the script, shut-out Henry 14-0

        STANFORD, KY. – What a difference a year makes.
        A season after the Bullitt Central defense averaged giving up 30 points a game and allowed at least 18 points in ten of the 11 games, the Cougars started 2016 with a shut-out on Friday, beating Henry County 14-0 in the PBK Bank Death Valley Bowl at Lincoln County High School.
        First-year head coach Matt Kuehn, who was the defensive coordinator last season when the focus was on offense, was pleased with the opening win.

  • Abnee steps in and leads Eagles to victory

        HEBRON ESTATES -- Look past the sweating brow of North Bullitt head football coach Adam Billings and you will see a smile.
        Coaches don’t always give glowing praise of their teams after the opening game.
        However, after watching his North Bullitt Eagles shut out Woodford County 20-0, Billings had a big smile.
        “I feel pretty good tonight,” Billings said as his Eagles controlled the contest after taking a 7-0 halftime lead.

  • New tracks will alter the fan experience for football

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The great news is that the new tracks at the three Bullitt County High Schools are nearly complete.

    In fact, the track at North Bullitt is finished and even rubberized and lined.

    While that is really great news for the area track programs, it will cause a few headaches for area football fans as was obvious last Friday night at Bullitt East as the team was scrimmaging Fern Creek.

  • McDonald makes it four Chargers going to Brescia

        MOUNT WASHINGTON – It’s all about team.
        Having good teammates paid big dividends for Bullitt East baseball standout Zach McDonald this summer when he received and accepted an offer to continue his diamond career at Brescia University in Owensboro.
        McDonald becomes the fourth, and final, Charger player to sign with Bearcats’ head coach Andrew Dickson.

  • BC’s youth hoping to learn from past success

        SHEPHERDSVILLE – No matter how you look at it, Bullitt Central’s boys’ soccer program had a breakout season in 2015.
        For the first time ever, the team won a 23rd District title, beating Southern 1-0 on penalty kicks, and then the Cougars beat Bullitt East 4-3 for the first regional win in program history. The run didn’t end until a 3-0 loss to Fairdale on the artificial turf at Mercy High School in the Sixth Region semi-finals.
