  • NB’s Logan Wyatt signs with U of L baseball

      HEBRON ESTATES – It was a dream come true for North Bullitt senior Logan Wyatt on Wednesday as he signed his national letter of intent to play baseball at the University of Louisville.

    A long-time Cardinal fan, the decision came easy back last summer when Louisville head coach Dan McDonnell presented the big third baseman with a scholarship proposal. Wyatt pretty much accepted on the spot.

  • Fern Creek pulls away late to beat Eagles

     FERN CREEK – North Bullitt’s turnaround, season-in-the-sun 2015 campaign came to an end on Friday as Fern Creek scored three times in the second half to beat the Eagles 28-7 in the second-round of the Class 5-A State Football Playoffs.

    The loss ended North Bullitt’s season at 9-3, an incredible reversal from the 1-10 mark the program posted in 2014.

    Against a very athletic Fern Creek team on Friday, the green and gold had opportunities early to seize momentum but an uneven offensive performance ultimately undid the Eagles.

  • NB vs. speedy force in second-round foe Fern Creek

      HEBRON ESTATES – It will be unchartered territory for the North Bullitt Eagles and their head coach on Friday as the green and gold play in the second round of the Kentucky high school football playoffs for the first time since 2011.

    The Eagles have a big hurdle to clear as they have to go on the road to face Class 5-A, District 4 winner Fern Creek, a team that defeated Bullitt Central 30-0 in its opening playoff contest.

    The Tigers are 10-1 overall and are ranked fourth in Class 5-A while North Bullitt is 9-2 and ranked eighth.

  • East’s Poppell finishes 12th in elite field

      LEXINGTON – It wasn’t quite the final placing that she had envisioned, but Bullitt East senior Sierra Poppell was still smiling after finishing 12th on Saturday at the Kentucky State Cross-Country Championships at the Kentucky Horse Park.

    This was the fourth straight run at the state championships for Poppell and she had her best time ever over the 5K course. However, Poppell’s time of 19:06.39 was only good for 12th. As a sophomore she had finished 11th and last year was in sixth place at the finish.

  • First half is a disaster for BE in lopsided loss

     FAIRDALE – All high school football seasons come to an end.

    But few high school football seasons will come to as an abrupt end as the 2015 season did for the Bullitt East Chargers.

    Coach Darrell Vincent’s team had been up and down during the regular season, but they seemed to be in position to erase some of the bad memories as they prepared to take on Fairdale on Friday in the first-round of the Kentucky Class 5-A Football play-offs.


  • BE’s Duvall commits to UK

    MOUNT WASHINGTON – Bullitt East standout guard Lindsey Duvall, a junior, announced last week that she has committed to play at the University of Kentucky and head coach Matthew Mitchell.

    Just recently, Duvall had moved up to 10th in the country among players in the Class of 2017 by ESPNW and was given five stars by numerous recruiting services.

    Toward the end, Duvall had whittled her list of schools to five and had in-home visits this fall with Kentucky, Louisville, Michigan, Ohio State and Colorado.

  • Defense excels early but BC’s offense never rises

     FERN CREEK – Bullitt Central shut down Fern Creek’s number one option on Friday in the first round of the Kentucky Class 5-A Play-offs.

    Unfortunately, the Tigers’ second and third options were more than the Cougars could handle.

    Despite getting the best defensive performance of the season and only trailing 9-0 at halftime to one of the area’s most athletic teams, the Cougars could not muster enough offense to make a run in the second half as Fern Creek pulled away late for the 30-0 win.

  • Eagles ‘good’ in Doss win; looking for ‘great’

     HEBRON ESTATES -- Adam Billings believes he has a pretty good football team.

    But the first-year head coach wants his North Bullitt Eagles to be better. And he must convince the players that they want to be better.

    On Friday night, Billings and his Eagles will learn if they have moved to that next level as they advance to the second round of the post-season.

    The Eagles will play at Fern Creek after moving past the Doss Dragons 34-6 on Friday.

  • North Bullitt at home for first time since 2011

     HEBRON ESTATES – For the first time since 2011, the North Bullitt Eagles will be at home for a post-season game on Friday as they host the Doss Dragons in the first round of the Class 5-A, Region 2 play-offs.

    North Bullitt has completed one of the biggest turnarounds in the state this season, finishing the regular season with an 8-2 record after finishing 1-10 a year ago. That finish was good enough for the number two seed in District 4 behind South Oldham.

  • Cougars are facing speedy Fern Creek

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After battling to reach the play-offs, the Bullitt Central Cougars didn’t earn any favors as they will travel to Fern Creek on Friday to take on the 9-1 Tigers in the first round of the Class 5-A, Region 2 play-offs.
