  • New coach, new era for North Bullitt football

     HEBRON ESTATES – A new era in North Bullitt football will begin on Friday when head coach Adam Billings leads the Eagles onto the field at Woodford County.

    Billings takes over for former head coach Brett Newton, who guided the green and gold for the past 18 seasons, campaigns that ran the gambit from highly successful to agonizingly painful.

  • Ruff takes over North Bullitt volleyball program

     HEBRON ESTATES – The North Bullitt Lady Eagles have had a lot of success on the volleyball court in recent seasons, having won four consecutive district titles as well as twice reaching the semi-finals of the regional tournament.

    However, the green and gold have not been as successful in the coaching department. The program has had three different coaches over the past four seasons.

  • Chargers ready to rely on strong interior line play

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Can interior line play carry a high school football team?

    Bullitt East head coach Darrell Vincent is certainly hoping that can be the case, at least early in the season, as the Chargers need to rebuild their ‘skilled’ positions.

    The good news is that the Chargers have the perfect offense, the split-back veer, to let the line carry the day. This won’t be the first time over the last 30 years that the highly successful program has had to lean on its line at some point in a season.

  • Dukes/Lawson combo will make BC pass happy

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Change will certainly be evident when the Bullitt Central Cougars open the 2015 football season on Friday when the maroon and gray takes on Madison Southern in the Death Valley Bowl at Lincoln County High School.

    Gone is arguably the best senior class of the past 40 years, a group that played a big role in the program’s 9-3 record a year ago that included a Class 5-A district title along with a post-season win over Jeffersontown before the season ended with a 14-0 loss to Iroquois.

  • Football scrimmages Friday; Breeden wins top tourney

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Football fans can get a preview glimpse of their favorite team on Friday as all three Bullitt County teams will conduct their only scrimmages of the season.

    Bullitt Central will start the action as the Cougars are set to scrimmage Seneca at 6:30 p.m. That action will be at Bullitt Central under new head coach Tye Lawson.

    At 7 p.m., Bullitt East will take the field against Fern Creek. That game will be right up the road from Mount Washington at Fern Creek.

  • Lady Chargers set to ascend to top of the regional battle

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Despite the loss of two of the state’s top players, one each over the past two seasons, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers are seeking to reach the top of the Sixth Region after falling to Mercy in the championship game each of those seasons.

    Bullitt East has also lost to Mercy in the last three championship games of the 24th District Tournament.

  • Lady Eagles appear ready to outscore its soccer opponents

     HEBRON ESTATES – The North Bullitt Lady Eagles have won three straight district titles and have reached the semi-finals of the Sixth Region Tournament each of those three seasons and now head coach Amber Mink is looking for the team to take another step forward.

    One of the first moves in that direction is that Mink is returning for a second season. The Lady Eagle program had three different coaches in one-year stints before Mink returned this year.

  • Tracks, rest room will be re-bid later this year

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Scott Kremer keeps looking for a nugget of good news to bring to the Bullitt County Public School Board.

    The owner of Studio Kremer Architects won’t get that opportunity for at least the next several months.

    Kremer was commissioned to lead a project that would improve track and field conditions at each of the high schools.

    As part of that project, North Bullitt High School was seeking to have rest room renovations at the football field.

  • Lady Charger volleyball looking for banner season

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East volleyball program is thinking big for the 2015 season – really big.

    With the possibility of putting three players on the court who stand 6-feet tall or taller, the Lady Chargers will be as big as any team veteran head coach Ed Fisher has ever had.

  • Chargers hope to bounce back from unfulfilling season

     MOUNT WASHINGTON –Coming off a season in which the team won just four games, the lowest total in a dozen years under head coach Mike Brangers, the Bullitt East Chargers are looking to get back to a winning formula this year.

    The team has nine seniors and Brangers is looking for an improved output from his team…if it can stay healthy. It was injuries that took the starch out of the team in 2014.
