  • East hoping for a healthy successful season

         SHEPHERDSVILLE - The Bullitt East football program, like most others, has had its ups and downs over the years.

         The one big difference is that the Chargers rarely stay down very long.

         Following a pair of disappointing seasons that saw the team lose the last three games in each campaign as well as a first-round play-off game in 2011, the red and gold are looking to make some big steps forward this fall.

  • Ray to take consistency to Asbury pitching staff

     BARDSTOWN - When Roger Robinson’s Bethlehem baseball squad gets back to practice in a few months, he’ll be without stalwart southpaw Brandon Ray for the first time in a long time.

  • Eagle soccer rebuilding after losing 15 seniors

     HEBRON ESTATES - Over the past two seasons, the North Bullitt boys’ soccer program has put an entertaining style of play on the field.

  • East girls look to make hay in new soccer alignment

     MOUNT WASHINGTON - After a 2011 season that finished with a 12-10 record that included both a seven game winning streak and an eight game losing streak, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers are looking for new heights this season.

  • Realignment could benefit BC girls’ soccer most of all

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Over the past eight seasons, playing in the Ninth District, the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars struggled to be relevant.

  • BC volleyball has some big shoes to fill for new coach

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - You can go home again. That is the case for first-year Bullitt Central volleyball head coach Katie VanVactor, a former Lady Cougar player.

    The 2005 graduate, who was Katie Lee at the time, takes over for Jennifer Romine who stepped down after getting the maroon and gray to the Eighth Region Tournament for two straight seasons including a 28th District crown in 2010.

  • Charger soccer ready to soar in new alignment

          MOUNT WASHINGTON - No soccer team is happier with realignment than the Bullitt East Chargers and veteran head coach Mike Brangers.

         Over the past 25 years, the Chargers have never won a district soccer title, this despite the fact that they have occasionally been ranked among the top 25 teams in the state and have consistently posted winning records. Twice recently the red and gold did reach a district soccer final, losing to Bethlehem both times, and then lost in the first game of the regional tournament.

  • Lady Eagle soccer has some holes to fill, but future bright

          HEBRON ESTATES - The North Bullitt Lady Eagle soccer program didn't suffer graduation losses any worse than most years in terms of numbers.

         However, coach Ryan Bringhurst's second team has one gaping hole to fill entering the 2012 season next week. Gone is senior Halee Heltsley who scored 37 goals last season and had 100 goals in her North Bullitt career. Heltsley is now playing soccer at Mississippi State University.

  • East girls' golf rebuilding, but Oder feels confident

          MOUNT WASHINGTON - You can't blame Bullitt East girls' golf coach Andy Oder if he thinks the 2012 season is déjà vu.

         The veteran coach, entering his sixth season at the helm, is pretty much starting from scratch with this year's team. The Lady Chargers have no seniors, and only one junior, this fall and none of the players has been in the program for more than two seasons. Over the last two seasons, the program has lost eight seniors.

  • Lindsey Wilson lands the services of BC’s Craddock

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Just blame it on the paperwork. That must have been it as Bullitt Central senior point guard Caleb Craddock was seldom slow to do anything.
