  • Lady Eagles are young but are willing to work

     HEBRON ESTATES – A year ago, the North Bullitt softball team made big strides during the season under first-year head coach Mike Nally.

    From being 3-25 in 2012, Nally and the Lady Eagles finished 9-15 last season. Even more impressive, the team picked up six of those wins in the month of May. The end didn’t come until the team lost a 2-1 decision to Southern in the first-round of the 23rd District Tournament on the Lady Trojans home field. That Southern team went on to reach the Sixth Region semi-finals.

  • This was a special time to be a Bullitt Countian

     SHIVLEY – ‘Proud to be from Bullitt County.’

  • Local youth runners, archers earn honors over the past weekend

    The 6.2-mile event - the second in the Triple Crown series - saw several local runners of all ages finish among the top in their age groups.

    For the youngsters, John Barbagallo of Mount Washington was second in the 14 and under division with a time of 38 minutes, 50 seconds.

    In the 15-19 age group, Michael Montgomery, also of Mount Washington, placed third with a time of 38:41.

  • Board moves on tracks but not until 2015 year

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - It may not be a Cadillac but sometimes a Volkswagen is at least a start.

    The Bullitt County Public School Board gave its OK to move forward with getting the three track surfaces into usable condition - by next year.

    A proposal was made several months ago by Jim Rice of Flynn Brothers Construction.

    This came after a story in The Pioneer News outlined the inability of any of the three high schools to host its own county track meet due to the disrepair of each facility.

  • Bearettes get the best of East in regional opener

     LOUISVILLE – Perhaps the Bullitt East Lady Chargers just shouldn’t play the third quarter in post-season games.

    For the second straight game, the red and gold were badly outplayed coming out of the halftime break and they paid for it each time. On Tuesday, it was Butler that turned the game around with a 26-11 run that included four three-pointers.

  • North takes the fight to Mercy, but comes up short

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - The Lady Eagles are flying under the radar no longer.
