  • 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.

  • A new era in Charger football under Sander

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – It will be the dawn of a new era in Bullitt East football on Friday when first-year head coach Mark Sander leads his team onto the field at home against Eastern High School.

  • New coach means new look for ‘16 Cougars

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Last season, the Bullitt Central Cougars filled the Friday night skies with footballs led by quarterback Cameron Dukes and wide receiver Chase Craddock.

    The year before that, the maroon and gray put the ball in the hands of running back Trevor Carnell and let him carry the load.

  • 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.

  • Eagles look for rise to top of the district

        HEBRON ESTATES – North Bullitt boys’ soccer coach Eddie Fightmaster wants more.
        The second year Eagle head coach wants more players.
        Heading into Monday’s season-opener against DeSales, North Bullitt has just 20 players in the program. With one of those players being an eighth-grader, that leaves just 19 players for varsity contests.
        With a better than average season a year ago and stability at the top, the coach thought his numbers would be improved.

  • Top end is strong, but Eagles seeking depth

     HEBRON ESTATES – After going from 1-10 to 9-3 in the first year under head coach Adam Billings, it might have seemed that football would be king at North Bullitt.

    But, heading into his second season, Billings seems to be doing more rebuilding that he did when he arrived. The entire program has just 55 players and on a tough Friday night Billings doesn’t expect to use more than 20 to 22 players.
