  • Poppell rallies for sixth-place at State

     LEXINGTON – In a race in which half of the top eight finishers were freshmen or younger, a little experience paid off on Saturday for Bullitt East junior Sierra Poppell at the Class AAA Kentucky State Cross-Country Championships at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington.

    One of the top runners in the state this season, Poppell got off to a slow start in the 5,000-meter race and was closer to 20th than first after the first mile. But didn’t panic or push. The junior stayed the course and let the race come to her.

  • BC overcomes sluggish start, beats J-town

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – Win and advance!

         That is the mantra of any team taking part in a single elimination bracket. There is no balloting and no points for style.

         Just win.

         That is what the Bullitt Central Cougars did on Friday, overcoming a poor first half and then playing just well enough over the final 24 minutes to beat visiting Jeffersontown 28-7 in the first-round of the Class 5-A play-offs.

  • Grayson brings North Bullitt's season to an end

     LEITCHFIELD – Teams looking to pull the big upset can’t make mistakes, especially early mistakes.

         Just ask the North Bullitt Eagles.

         After struggling through the regular season with just one win, the Eagles felt like they had the opportunity at redemption with the start of the Class 5-A play-offs and a trip to Grayson County on Friday.

  • Bulldogs continue to be post-season sensations

    MOUNT WASHINGTON -- In the past two seasons, Bullitt East has re-established itself as a football title contender.

  • BE-John Hardin match-up highlights first-round play

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Not all post-season high school football games are created equal.

    One of the best in the state on the opening weekend will be this Friday in Mount Washington when Bullitt East plays host to John Hardin in the first-round of the Class 5-A play-offs. This is a rematch of last year’s Region Two Championship game that John Hardin won 28-14.

    That was the sixth straight Region Two title for the Bulldogs.

  • 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.
