  • Chargers look for another big post-season run

    MOUNT WASHINGTON – If you are the type fan that bases your hopes for the upcoming season on the returning ‘skill’ position players, then you will love the Bullitt East Chargers heading into the 2014 season.

         If, on the other hand, you look at returning linemen as the basis for the upcoming campaign, then you are probably losing some sleep worrying about the Chargers as they prepare to start play this Friday against Boyle County in the Death Valley Bowl at Lincoln County High School.

  • Boston returns to coach NB V-ball

     HEBRON ESTATES – You can go home again.

         That is certainly the case for new North Bullitt volleyball coach Cecilia Boston as she takes over the Lady Eagle program that she last played for in 2008.

         Boston is the third coach in the program in as many seasons.

         “It’s been a lot more than I expected,” Boston said before a practice last week. “The girls are better than I thought. I know they have had a lot of coaching turnover.”

  • Friday Night Lights

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The high school football season will get off the ground with a bang on Friday as both North Bullitt and Bullitt East head into battle against tough foes.

         North Bullitt will be at home on Friday against Franklin County, a team that has lost just one regular season game over the last three seasons. The Flyer went 11-2 last season including a season-opening 52-14 win over the Eagles in Frankfort.

  • Lady Charger golf rebuilding; Nusz leads BC

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After years of being one of the better girls’ golf teams in the area, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers are going through a transition stage this year.

    That transition includes both players and at coach.

    After seven years as the head coach, Andy Oder stepped down to spend more time working with youth golf in the area as well as his job as Executive 

    Director of the Kentucky Golf Coaches’ Association.

  • BE V-ball ready for 6th Region run

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – After winning a program best 28 games last season but then struggling in the post-season, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers feel that they have some unfinished business for this volleyball season.

    Veteran coach Ed Fisher feels that he has the power to at least get multiple chances at Mercy this fall. That would mean meeting up with the state and national powers in the 24th District final and the Sixth Region final.

  • Former BE Lady Charger standout Brandy Scott nabs Lady Bears’ job

     TAYLORSVILLE – If the Spencer County Lady Bears’ basketball program is to take the next step toward competing for district and regional titles, it may require stepping back to the basics of the game.

    That’s the philosophy of new head coach Brandy Scott as she takes over a program that has struggled in recent years to match up with the better teams in the area.

  • High school sports season is about to explode

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The vacation is over. Like all of us, that is a sad thing to have to say. It’s like the day after Christmas.

    Still, it is great to come back to a job that you love and that has not changed one bit.

  • BC’s Humphrey to play basketball at Spalding

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Making the most of an open gym try-out late in the spring, Bullitt Central senior Zack Humphrey earned an invitation to join the program at Spalding University.

    As Humphrey recalled, it didn’t take much selling from Golden Eagle head coach Kevin Gray to get Humphrey to stay close to home for his college basketball.

    Of course, Humphrey didn’t mention to Gray that he was planning at attending the Louisville-area college if basketball was involved or not.

  • Coaching moves affect number of fall football foes

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – While Bullitt County had no major football coaching changes this season, and hasn’t for a number of years, some of this fall’s opponents had major changes at the top of their programs.
