  • Mercy gets past East...again

     HIGHVIEW - Mercy Academy is where Bullitt East soccer coach Steve Gentry wants to program to be.

    However, that doesn’t come without a lot of work.

    For yet another season, the Mercy Jaguars ended the post-season for the Lady Chargers with a 3-0 victory in the Sixth Region title game on Saturday evening.

    “I thought we came out a little flat tonight,” said Gentry. “I find that hard to believe you come out flat in a regional final but I think you have to give Mercy a lot of credit for that.”

  • Mercy does what Mercy does in final

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – There are dreams and then there is reality.

Facing the top-ranked team in the country for much of this season, the Lady Chargers had little chance of winning, falling 25-8, 25-8, 25-10.

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – A common phrase heard in the sports world is ‘win or go home’.

The winner of the final district match of the regular season will earn the number two spot in Class 5-A, District 4 and will play a home game in the first round of the play-offs.

  • Oh What a Night!! Girls’ soccer teams all win

  • BE advance to 24th District volleyball finals

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – There is never a bad time to play a good volleyball match. However, the great times to play a strong match are less common.

    The Bullitt East Lady Chargers accomplished all of that on Monday, taking advantage of playing on their home court to beat Whitefield Academy in three games in the first semi-final of the 24th District Tournament. The first game went down to the wire before Bullitt East got the key points and they then rolled to a 27-25, 25-19, 25-19 win.

  • BC, NB advance to 23rd District volleyball finals

  • BC goes on road, comes home with district title

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – Good football teams beat quality opponents in tough games. Successful teams find ways to win when they are not at their best.

The win was the eighth in a row for the maroon and gray to open the season.
