  • BE squares off with Camels in semi-finals

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – Most high school sports teams have their banquets after the season is completed.

    Not the Bullitt East Chargers. Not this season.

    Because of the team’s deep run in the post-season, coach Jeff Bowles’ team had its earlier scheduled banquet on Monday of this week. Of course, there was a lot to celebrate as Bullitt East is still alive heading into the final week of the season, playing in the state semi-finals on Friday.

  • Kuehn takes over Bullitt Central’s football program

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – With just two days remaining in the school year last week, Bullitt Central named Matt Kuehn as its new football coach.

    Kuehn met with the players later that afternoon.

    The naming of Kuehn was not a total shock as he had conducted spring drills while on an interim basis after former head coach Tye Lawson stepped down after just one season, leading the Cougars to a 6-5 mark. Lawson is now the athletic director and football coach at Eminence High School.
