  • East exercises some past demons

     TAYLORSVILLE -- Mark Sander will tell you as a coach, he’s not worried about wins and losses. He is looking for his team to make progress each week.

    But, he also knows that high schools are worried about the scoreboard.

    That’s way Thursday night’s 56-8 victory over Spencer County was so important.

    There were a lot of high fives and smiles in Taylorsville as the Bullitt East Chargers improved its record to 1-2 on the young season.

  • Bullitt Central building behind lone senior Harp

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The Bullitt Central Lady Cougars snapped North Bullitt’s five-year reign at the top of the 23rd District a year ago and now with that hurdle cleared, veteran head coach Karen Vogt is looking for new goals to set.

    Still, Bullitt Central will be doing some rebuilding this season as the program has just one senior – left side hitter Emily Harp.

  • UPDATE: Road week for football fans

     Editor's Note: Due to the remnants of Hurricane Harvey expected to reach the area and causing a flood watch, Friday's football games have been rescheduled for Thursday night. All game times have been moved up to a 7 p.m. start.

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – The trips are all short, but all three Bullitt County football teams will be on the road on Friday as they continue to prepare for the start of the important Class 5-A, Region 3 games that begin on Sept. 22.

  • Lady Eagles rally past Central in volleyball play

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After losing the first game, a game in which they gave up the final seven points, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles could have faltered in front of a large and boisterous crowd last Wednesday at Bullitt Central.

    But coach Keith Higgs’ team reversed the situation in the second game, scoring the final three points and then rolled to a 3-1 victory over the Lady Cougars by a 18-25, 25-22, 25-21, 25-23.

  • North and East set for another showdown in girls’ soccer

      SHEPHERDSVILLE –Two of the top three girls’ soccer teams in the Sixth Region will collide on Wednesday when Bullitt East travels to North Bullitt for the only regular season meeting this season between the two rivals.

    In each of the past five years, both the Lady Eagles and Lady Chargers have reached the semi-finals of the Sixth Region Tournament. Bullitt East, with four wins over North Bullitt, has advanced to the championship game each time before eventually losing to Mercy. A year ago, North Bullitt lost to Mercy in the semi-finals.

  • East battles but Central Hardin just too tough

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The outcome still wasn’t what anyone wanted, but Bullitt East head coach Mark Sander was much happier with the effort before his Chargers dropped a 44-10 decision to Class 6-A power Central Hardin.

    Coming on the heels of the 53-0 season-opening loss to Butler during which the team failed to rally from an early 13-0 deficit, this week the red and gold stayed the course and stayed in the game against another powerful foe.

  • Eagles show plenty of fight in Friday’s victory

     HEBRON ESTATES -- After a tough outing against one of the select teams in the hunt for a 6-A state championship year in and year out, North Bullitt head coach Adam Billings was looking for one thing this week.

    Fight.

    And, he felt his Eagles gave him the fight and determination he was looking for in the 47-20 victory over the Southern Trojans.

    “We’re going to get better each week,” Billings said of his young team.

    The host got off to q good start.

  • Cougars aren’t afraid of any Bears

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Some would label it redemption.

    Others would say it was revenge.

    What everyone would call it was a huge statement for Bullitt Central football on Friday as the maroon and gray beat visiting Spencer County 38-13.

    It was just two seasons ago on the very same field that Spencer County rushed for 737 yards in a 77-42 win over the Cougars. Needless to say, Bullitt Central’s defensive coordinator at the time didn’t get any sleep that night.

  • Lady Eagles off to a hot start

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Scoring five times in the first 20 minutes of the game, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles showed that they are still the class of the 23rd District on Monday as they rolled past Bullitt Central 10-0.

    In fact, North Bullitt rolled through everyone during the first week of the season. Besides defeating the Lady Cougars, the green and gold also mauled Ballard 8-0 and Butler 9-3. That doesn’t even count a game against Fern Creek in which North Bullitt was up 6-0 just 22 minutes into the contest before heavy rains stopped the game.

  • Friday Night Lights!

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Both Bullitt Central and North Bullitt will be at home this Friday night while Bullitt East heads out on the road.

    Bullitt Central will get to face one of the top players in the area on Friday when Spencer County and senior running back/defensive back Kadin Smith, who has already committed to Purdue, comes to town. Smith carried the ball 16 times for 276 yards as he scored four touchdowns as the Bears mauled Bardstown 36-14 last Friday.

    Spencer County has beaten the Cougars each of the past two seasons.
