  • BC has eyes on a prize -- a district title

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – With a year together under their belts, Bullitt Central volleyball coach Karen Vogt feels that she and her team are leaps and bounds ahead of where they were at the start of last season.

    With that in mind, the players and coaches are focused on winning a district title for the first time since 2010.

  • BE’s Poppell, BC’s Mitchell finish well at Tiger Run

     LOUISVILLE – The high school cross-country season got started over the weekend when the programs at both Bullitt East and Bullitt Central competed in the huge Tiger Run at Champions Park in Louisville.

    Some of the races had over 300 runners taking part.

    As will be the case for most of this fall, the spotlight will be on Bullitt East senior Sierra Poppell, who is one of the top returning runners in the state, having finished sixth in last year’s Class AAA Kentucky State Championships.

  • East’s early-season woes continue in loss to Titans

     MOUNT WASHINGTON –The rocky start to the 2015 football season for the Bullitt East Chargers got a lot bumpier on Friday as the red and gold fell behind 28-0 in the first quarter before losing to visiting Martha Layne Collins on Friday 55-14.

    The 55 points is the most the Chargers have allowed in a loss (BE beat Nelson County 67-59 two years ago) since  Aug. 27, 2010 in a 63-12 loss to Holy Cross. It was the first time that the Chargers have had a running clock against them since losing to Collins 52-7 midway through the 2010 season.

  • North doubles victory total in rout of Trojans from last year in two games

     HEBRON ESTATES -- Football games are not won or lost on Friday nights.

    They are won or lost during the week in practice.

    North Bullitt head coach Adam Billings felt pretty good after Wednesday’s practice.

    “It was a great practice,” said the first-year Eagle head coach. “The players are hungry.”

    After going on the road to defeat Woodford County, North Bullitt did something Billings, or many of his players, may not have dreamed possible -- defeated Southern to go 2-0 on the season.

  • Cougars score twice late to beat Fairdale

     SHEPHERDSVILLE –After falling behind 20-13 with less than four minutes remaining in the third quarter, the Bullitt Central offense scored twice over the next eight minutes and then let the defense do the rest on Friday as the Cougars moved to 2-0 with a 26-20 win at home over Fairdale.

    This was the second time this season the Cougars have led by a single score down the stretch and both times the defense has stepped up and made the plays to secure a win.

  • All three area teams ready for a big Friday at home

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After opening the season with all three teams on the road, Week II will have all three Bullitt County football teams at home on Friday.

  • Lady Chargers learn they have work to do before post-season

     CEDAR GROVE – It wasn’t exactly the performance that Bullitt East Lady Charger head coach Larry Steinmetz was looking for on Saturday in the Schmid Funeral Home Bluegrass Invitational at Heritage Hill Golf Club, but there were enough bright spots to give the coach hope for the rest of the season.

    The not so good news was that the team finished with a 466 total on the day, well off the winning score of 313 shot by both Elizabethtown and Paul Dunbar. That was only good for 16th in a field of 19 teams.

  • BE playing volleyball in Jaguars’ tall shadow

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – The Bullitt East Lady Chargers may have thought they were ready to make a move on national power Mercy this season in volleyball, but at least after the first eight days of the season, coach Ed Fisher’s team still has a lot of work to do just to be competitive with one of the top program’s in the country.

  • Clark Teague takes over BC athletic program

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After spending 28 years on the sidelines, Clark Teague stepped from the playing field to an office job over the summer, becoming the new athletic director at Bullitt Central.

    Teague takes over for Mike Gossett who stepped down after two years to return to the sidelines as the head football coach at Southern High School.

    Despite the move of Gossett to Southern, his wife, Tiffany, remains at Bullitt Central and is now Teague’s administrative assistant.

  • Miscues costly as Chargers fall in season opener

     MIDDLETOWN –Three turnovers and a pair of botched punt attempts that resulted in 60 yards of net losses were more than Bullitt East could overcome on Friday as the red and gold opened the 2015 season with a 28-14 loss to Eastern.

    While any loss is disappointing, veteran Charger head coach Darrell Vincent saw enough of a silver lining to believe that his team is headed in the right direction.
