  • BE girls are regional CC contenders

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – For the first time ever, all three Bullitt County cross-country programs will compete in the same regional meet when they take part in the Class AAA, Region 3 Championships on Saturday.

    The move comes after the Kentucky High School Athletic Association realigned the sport across the state last summer. North Bullitt and Bullitt East moved up from Class AA to join Bullitt Central in Class AAA.

  • Black Monday - Regional volleyball is a short week

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – What was hoped to be a long week for Bullitt County volleyball teams, turned into a short week as all three of the local teams lost on Monday in the first-round of the Sixth Region Tournament.

    Bullitt East has had the strongest team in Bullitt County this fall and coming off a win over Whitefield Academy in the 24th District Tournament before falling to Mercy in the final, the Lady Chargers appeared poised for a deep run this week.

  • Turnovers doom Eagles

     HEBRON ESTATES – Saturday afternoon football doesn’t seem to suit the North Bullitt Eagles very well.

    That was the lesson most obvious this past weekend as the green and gold played host to Callow ay County in a non-district game. Despite leading 12-7 midway through the second quarter, the Eagles came up short, falling 35-12 on a blustery afternoon.

  • BC hits a rough patch Friday

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Facing a team in the top 10 in the state’s biggest football classification is tough enough.

    And when you fumble the kickoff on two consecutive plays to open the game, things suddenly got much worse.

    The Bullitt Central Cougars fans may have enjoyed the Senior Night festivities and a spirited halftime performance by the band but there wasn’t much else to cheer for in a 43-7 loss to Simon Kenton.

  • Football pairings to be decided Friday

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – For the second time in three seasons, the final seedings for the post-season in Class 5-A, District 4 won’t be decided until the final night of the regular season.

    That is because Shelby County, North Bullitt and Bullitt Central each finished with a 1-2 record in district play. Bullitt East won the district with a 3-0 mark and already knows that they will play host to North Hardin (1-9) when the play-offs begin on Nov. 8.

  • East at Shelby on Friday for district crown

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – With at least one play-off game at home already in the bag, the Bullitt East Chargers will have the opportunity on Friday to add a possible second home game as well as a district championship when they travel to Shelby County.

    Despite a loss to North Bullitt two weeks ago, Shelby County is also in charge of its own destiny as they can claim the district title with a win over Bullitt East and get two home games in November.

  • Oops! 6th Region was mystery event

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – One of the last words you want to hear as the Sports Editor of a newspaper is ‘Oops.’

    Twice in the past week I’ve had to tell myself ‘Oops’. One I don’t have much trouble passing along, the other was my bad.

    Mistakes happen in any line of work. However, as we all know, some miscues are more serious than others.

  • Back in the Saddle - Blackburn named BE coach

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Bullitt East made the most out of a bad situation on Monday when the school named former head coach Bob Blackburn the boys’ head basketball coach for the upcoming season.

  • East puts it all together in district

     OKOLONA – The Bullitt East Lady Chargers did just what every coach dreams about – they played their best in the post-season.

    The Lady Chargers did just that on Monday, jumping out to an early advantage and then rolling past Whitefield Academy in the semi-finals of the 24th District Tournament on the Lady Wildcats’ home floor. The final tally was 25-18, 25-19, 19-25, 25-16.

  • East rolls to 4-0 soccer win; BC falls
