  • Fall sports previews to start in next week’s editions

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Summer is over!

    I can now make that official statement as I begin to work on previews for all the fall sports teams. The previews will start in Monday’s edition and that will allow basically four issues for golf, soccer, volleyball and football previews.

    I really can’t give you any type of order in which they will run other than to say that football previews won’t run until the week of Aug. 17.

  • East golfers make run at own tourney title

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Finishing with four scores in the 70s normally means great things during a high school golf match.

    While certainly not disappointed with the opening results of the seasons, the Bullitt East Chargers found they still have some work to do this season after shooting an impressive 303 in The Charger Open Presented by Schmid Funeral Home only to finish 11 strokes behind Franklin County for the top spot overall.

  • Area schools think alike with new football schedules

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Happy Halloween.

    If it seems like a good idea to a few, then others will follow suit.

    That was how the three high area high schools approached football scheduling under the new alignment that goes into affect starting this season.

  • Action doesn’t stop even when the Sports Editor goes on summer vacation

     SHEPHERDSVILLE –Back and ready for action!

    That is the feeling here as the Sports Editor is back from vacation and ready for the fall sports season to begin for the area high schools.

    Actually, the high school golf season started on Friday with Bullitt East hosting the Charger Open at Heritage Hill Golf Course. You can see the results from that event in Wednesday’s edition.

  • 'Dead Period' is not ominous as it might sound

      SHEPHERDSVILLE - It might not seem that important to the casual high school sports fan, but the Kentucky "dead period" is an important two week period in the middle of the summer.
        In fact, this year, the KHSAA website has a countdown clock on its home page that counted down to the start of the "dead period" and has now switched to counting down the time to the end of the 15 day lull in activity.
        For the record, the "dead period" runs from 12:00.01 a.m. on June 25 to 11:59.59 p.m. on July 9.

  • Porter signs with Morehead

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Sometimes, even in the sports world, small is good…and in high demand.

    That was certainly the case for Bullitt Central senior cheerleader Brianna Porter when it came to continuing doing what she loves to do at the next level. That first step was recently completed when Porter signed to join the cheerleading program at Morehead State University.

  • BC’s McDonald to play volleyball at Midway

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Never give up.

    That was the way Bullitt Central senior Darian McDonald handled things when it came to finding the right fit for her college volleyball career.

    As it turned out, McDonald had friends in the right places.

  • Are the Lady Chargers ready to dethrone Mercy?

     MOUNT WASHINGTON -- Talk about your broken records.

    (For those readers under the age of 30, that is a reference to a long lost method of sound reproduction. When a vinyl record would become broken, then the needle that rode across it to create the sound would skip, jumping back, and playing the same part of the recording over and over.)

  • Local contingent shines at annual East-West All-Star games Saturday

    The annual Kentucky High School Coaches Association East/West Junior All Star Basketball Games had a strong Bullitt County flavor on Saturday as four seniors-to-be took part in the two games at Bellarmine Univerity's Knight Hall.

    In the opening girls' game, North Bullitt's Katie Downey played for the West team. The Lady Eagles' leading scorer last seasons scored one point as her team fell 71-69.

  • Seven BE cheerleaders headed to college teams

    MOUNT WASHINGTON--Seven Bullitt East High School students will be furthering their cheerleading careers in college.

    Kristen Dadisman and Christina Daugherty will be heading to the University of Kentucky.

    Dadisman said she started cheering in fifth grade at Eastside Middle School and decided to continue in high school.

    “I liked being thrown around,” she said.

    The Mount Washington resident said she selected UK because it has a good cheerleading program as well as nursing, which she plans to major in.
