  • Cougars host Jeffersontown

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – Halloween was last week, but the Bullitt Central Cougars will be trying to exercise some demons from the past when they take on Jeffersontown on Friday in the first-round of the Class 5-A play-offs.

  • NB hits the road to Grayson

     HEBRON ESTATES – With one big effort on Friday night, the North Bullitt Eagles can erase much of the pain from a regular season that saw the green and gold win just one game.

    That one game will be in Leitchfield as the Eagles will be taking on Grayson County in the first-round of the Class 5-A play-offs. The Cougars have an 8-2 record and the number one seed from District Three. This is the first time that Grayson County has the number one seed in the present alignment.

    North Bullitt is the fourth seeded team in District Four with that 1-9 record.

  • Because North ran, East’s team goes to state

     LOUISVILLE – Nobody, and I mean nobody, was happier to see five North Bullitt female runners step out of the van on Saturday morning at E.P. Tom Sawyer State Park than Bullitt East head coach Lenny Raley.

    Because North Bullitt had enough runners to start the Class 3-A, Region 3 Meet on Saturday, Bullitt East was able to qualify its entire girls’ team for the Kentucky State Championships this Saturday at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington.

  • Poppell third; BE and BC runners to state

     LOUISVILLE – Cold and windy conditions made the going tough on Saturday at the Class 3-A, Region 3 Cross-Country Championships at E.P. Tom Sawyer State Park in eastern Jefferson County.

    Still, a number of Bullitt County runners fought through the conditions and advanced to the Kentucky State Cross-Country Championships at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington on Saturday.

  • Forget '13', it was '3' that spooked Cougars on Friday

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The third time was definitely not the charm on Friday for the Bullitt Central Cougars.

         Forced into overtime for the third time this season, all at home, the maroon and gray were beaten by South Oldham 49-42 in three overtimes in the final regular season game for both teams this season.

  • BE rallies in fourth for third straight victory

    MOUNT WASHINGTON – Breaking in a new starting quarterback on the final night of the regular season is never a good thing.

         Just ask Bullitt East head coach Darrell Vincent.

         With senior Pierce Kelly out for one game after getting injured the previous week in the win over Shelby County, the Chargers, who already lost Konner Polson for the season with a broken collarbone, inserted junior Matthew Snawder on Thursday night for a battle against Fairdale.

  • Mercy ends Lady Eagles' season

     VALLEY STATIION – Nobody likes to lose the final match of the regular season, especially when it comes on the big stage of a regional tournament.

         At times, the feelings are made worse if you are not competitive.

         However, for the North Bullitt volleyball program, the final match of the 2014 season will be one that they will never forget even if they did lose 25-6, 25-12, 25-3.

  • Meade arrives late scores early on Friday

     HEBRON ESTATES -- It may have been the appropriate way to wind up the 2014 regular season for the North Bullitt Eagles.

  • Bullitt County Night at regional left BE standing

     HIGHVIEW – It was a historic night for Bullitt County sports on Wednesday as all three local soccer programs played in the semi-finals of the Girls’ Sixth Region Tournament at Mercy High School.

    While all three teams had made the regional tournament the year before, this was the first time all three won opening round games. In fact, it is the first time in any sport that all three Bullitt County schools have reached such a lofty spot in the post-season at the same time.

  • Cross-country post-season starts running on Saturday

     BARDSTOWN – In the final tune-up for all three programs before the Region 3 meet this Saturday, the area cross-country teams competed in the Mid-Kentucky Athletic Conference Meet at the Bluegrass Expo Center.

    The day belonged to Bullitt East as they won both the boys’ and the girls’ titles while in addition Lady Charger junior Sierra Poppell continued her strong season by winning the girls’ race by over a minute. Poppell has moved into the top-10 runners across the state in Class 3-A this season.
