  • Being a volleyball team in the 6th Region is not easy

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Life is tough in the Sixth Region, especially if you are a volleyball coach.

         That fact was true long before the three Bullitt County schools joined the Sixth Region for volleyball last season.

         Just call it the Mercy rule.

  • Correction needs; Volleyball moves back a full week

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – I know this might be hard to believe, but every so often the Sports Editor makes a mistake.

  • Top golfers are regional threats

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – There are few seasons when expectations for the Bullitt East boys’ golf team are not modest, but this fall, coach Kyle Downs feels that his team is coming of age and ready to contend once again for regional golf honors.

  • Next KHSAA project could be trouble for Bullitt

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The news in Monday’s edition of The Pioneer News about the move of North Bullitt and Bullitt East from Class 2-A to Class 3-A in both cross-country and track and field did not come as a surprise to anyone.

    While the two schools have done well in Class 2-A in recent years, the move shouldn’t be a backbreaker for coaches Michael Whitfill (NB) and Lenny Raley (BE). The two coaches pull double duty at both schools, serving now only as the head coaches of both sports, but doing it for both the boys’ and the girls’ programs.

  • Bringhurst ready to take over Eagle athletics

     HEBRON ESTATES – With the hiring of Ryan Bringhurst as their new athletic director, North Bullitt High School has taken a somewhat new approach to the position.

  • KHSAA realigns track/CC starting this fall

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – What had been proposed back in late April became official last week as the track and field as well as the cross-country programs at both North Bullitt and Bullitt East have been moved from Class AA to Class AAA starting this fall, joining Bullitt Central with the state’s largest schools.

  • NB's Stinnett ready for baseball at Pikeville U.

     HEBRON ESTATES -- The hard work has paid off for Cody Stinnett.

  • North's Kennedy signs for baseball at Brescia

     HEBRON ESTATES – North Bullitt senior Anthony Kennedy has always wanted to play baseball in college.

         He will get that chance this fall after signing recently to play at Brescia University located in Owensboro.

         In the end, the decision to sign with Brescia was pretty simple – they made the best financial offer for Kennedy and his family. The only other school that Kennedy considered was Berea College.

  • Pfister, Stallings are Stars

     LOUISVILLE - Bullitt East head coach Chris Stallings and senior-to-be Courtney Pfister both took part in the Kentucky HIgh School Basketball Coaches’ East/West All-Star game Saturday at St. Xavier High School.

  • BE's Ethridge signs to cheer for the Cardinals

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – after excelling in two athletic events in high school, Bullitt East senior Chris Ethridge opted for cheerleading over baseball at the next level, signing to cheer at the University of Louisville.

         Cheerleading is the newer event for Ethridge, but the one that he fell in love with quickly. He has only been a cheerleader at Bullitt East the past two years and during some of that time he was out of action with an injury.
