  • Battered Eagles put up a fight against Rockets

     HEBRON ESTATES – The highlights may have mirrored many of those from the previous week, but on Friday night North Bullitt head coach Adam Billings was much more excited about his team’s performance against visiting Shelby County than he was the previous week in a frustrating loss to Jeffersontown.

  • North set to host Shelby on Friday

     HEBRON ESTATES – For the only time during the regular season, there will be just one football game this week as both Bullitt Central (3-0) and Bullitt East (1-2) take the week off before resuming action on Sept. 15.

    The team that will be playing on Friday, North Bullitt, will be playing at home as the Eagles try to bounce back from a difficult 40-25 loss last Thursday to Jeffersontown, a game in which the green and gold led 19-6 with less than two minutes remaining in the first half.

  • Boys’ golf teams racing to improve by post-season

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Bullitt East boys’ golf coach Kyle Downs will be the first to admit that when the season began his team was not in a position to challenge for a regional title, something the program strives to do every year.

    But the high school season is two months long and Downs feels that with some productive work that his team can rise to compete for a top two finish and a return trip to the Kentucky State Golf Tournament in October in Bowling Green.

  • Lady Eagles nab first salvo in girls’ soccer play

     HEBRON ESTATES – The game lived up to expectations on Wednesday when North Bullitt and Bullitt East, two of the top three teams in the Sixth Region, collided in girls’ soccer action on the Lady Eagles’ home field.

    All of the scoring came in the first half as North Bullitt rallied after an early Bullitt East score to win the game 2-1 and remain undefeated through six games this season.

  • Move to Thursday was right call

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – North Bullitt football coach Adam Billings put it best when he was asked about his team’s game last week being moved from Friday night to Thursday in an attempt to avoid the remnants of Hurricane Harvey which was set to hit the area early on Friday.

    “I didn’t like moving the game,” the third-year head coach said late on Thursday. “But I didn’t like the weather report even more.”

  • Cougars pull away late for shut-out road win

     OKOLONA – For the third time in as many weeks, the Bullitt Central Cougars looked like a different team after halftime on Thursday as the maroon and gray rolled to three touchdowns after the break for a 27-0 win over Southern.

    It was the 10th straight victory for the Cougars over their northern neighbors.

    The win was the third straight to open the season for the Cougars heading into a ‘bye’ date before the team returns to action on Sept. 15 at home against North Oldham for the final tune-up before the team starts district play.

  • North gets (on-sides) kicked to the side by J-town

      JEFFERSONTOWN – Just call it the Perfect Storm before the real storm.

    Playing on Thursday night last week because of concerns for heavy rain on Friday, the North Bullitt Eagles went into Jefferson County to take on longtime rival Jeffersontown. It was a horrible compilation of miscues at just the wrong time as the green and gold dropped a surprising 40-25 decision to the Chargers.

  • 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.
