  • There’s no ‘good’ draw for Lady Eagle soccer

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – There is no revelation here, but as we head into the post-season for soccer starting on Monday, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles are between a rock and hard place when it comes to the upcoming district and regional brackets.

    First off, North Bullitt could not be a bigger favorite to win the 24th District Tournament set for next Tuesday and Thursday at Bullitt Central. The Lady Eagles have beaten Bullitt Central, Moore and Southern by 10-0 scores in games that ended very early.

  • Central’s late rally sets up district showdown

      HEBRON ESTATES – The post-season for area volleyball teams might still be two weeks away, but there was a definite tournament atmosphere in play on Monday when Bullitt Central and North Bullitt clashed for the second time this season.

  • BE’s Taylor headed to state golf for third time

         FORT KNOX – It wasn’t the day that he had hoped for, but Bullitt East senior Zach Taylor still qualified for this week’s Boys’ Kentucky State Golf Tournament after he fired a 79 in the Region Five event at Lindsey Golf Course at Fort Knox.
        Taylor becomes the first Bullitt East golfer to ever qualify for three trips to the state tournament.

  • Eagles move to 6-1 with win

        HEBRON ESTATES -- The defense was physical.
        The offense was efficient.
        And the North Bullitt Eagles played hard for 48 minutes.
        That resulted in a workmanlike 35-12 victory over Oldham County on Friday night.
        But the score really wasn’t that close as the visiting Colonels scored a pair of late touchdowns to close the final margin.

  • Cougars make the final stand to beat East

        SHEPHERDSVILLE – On his coaches’ board on Friday, Bullitt Central head coach Matt Kuehn in big letters wrote ‘FINISH’.
        Actually, the coach was referring more to his offense, but it was his defense that went wire-to-wire on Friday including an interception at the 11-yard line with 1:56 remaining in the game by sophomore Daylin Huff that capped a 9-7 victory for the Cougars in the 28th annual renewal of ‘The War’ against Bullitt East.

  • THE WAR!! - Again! So much on the line in a big game

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – There will be no shortage of important things to play for on Friday when Bullitt East rolls into Shepherdsville for the 28th renewal with Bullitt Central of The War.

    Of course, the simple fact that it is Bullitt East against Bullitt Central will bring emotions boiling to the surface. The Chargers have a 19-8 lead in the series. During one stretch, the red and gold won ten straight meetings. Now, over the past nine seasons, the Chargers have only a 5-4 edge.

  • NB set for homecoming Friday

     HEBRON ESTATES – It will be Football Homecoming 2016 at North Bullitt on Friday as the Eagles play host to Class 5-A, District 3 rival Oldham County.

    Every high school football coach wants his plays to enjoy the events leading up to Friday night, but they all worry that a lack of focus can derail big things.

    North Bullitt head coach Adam Billings said he just had one simple message for his team on that topic early this week.

  • BE’s football woes not deadly

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The news last week that Bullitt East had self-reported itself to the Kentucky High School Athletic Association didn’t really come as a huge surprise.

    The whirlwind romance of getting senior soccer player Christian Foster into uniform and onto the field was quick. Many wondered aloud if all the details had been worked out.

    Obviously, it worked on the field as in her first game Foster kicked eight extra points in eight tries. She also recovered an on-sides kick.

  • Lady Chargers get the best of Central 9-0

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Getting four goals from senior Christian Foster, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers had no trouble on Tuesday turning back Bullitt Central 9-0 in girls’ soccer action.

    Foster, who by the end of the week had scored 42 goals in 16 games, was all over the field a night after scoring three times in a 4-3 loss to district rival Mercy.

  • BE’s Battistotti takes fifth at regional golf

     FORT KNOX – Bullitt East senior Margherita Battistotti, a foreign exchange student from Italy, fired an 86 in wet conditions on Monday to finish fifth in the Girls’ Region Three Tournament at Lindsey Golf Course located at Fort Knox.

    That finish earned Battistotti a spot in next week’s Kentucky State Tournament on Tuesday and Wednesday at the Bowling Green Country Club. Battistotti is the first Bullitt East female golfer to reach the state tournament since Olivia Pruitt in 2013.
