  • Bitter disappointment for Chargers on Friday

    MOUNT WASHINGTON – In high school football there is often a fine line between spectacular glory and bitter disappointment.

         The Bullitt East Chargers learned about the former and just how fine that line can be on Friday as they were shocked by visiting Central Hardin 35-28.  The final touchdown for the Bruins was scored on a 47-yard pass with just 38 seconds remaining in the game.

  • Cougars stay hot, rout Calloway County

    PADUCAH – Heading into Saturday’s game against Calloway County that was part of the McCracken Bowl, Bullitt Central head coach Danny Leasor emphasized ‘taking care of business.’

         We all should have it so easy in the business world.

  • BE’s homecoming clash is big; Central really goes on the road

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – One of the biggest football games in the area this weekend will be in Mount Washington as undefeated Central Hardin visits to take on Bullitt East and its three-game winning streak.

    Adding to the festivities in Mount Washington is the fact that it will be homecoming for the Charger Nation.

  • East and North beat the elements before BE wins

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – What has been a tough first-part of the season for both teams, got a little better for the Bullitt East Chargers on Thursday as they turned back North Bullitt 2-0 in boys’ soccer action.

    The contest was almost not played as heavy rains the previous night hit the area, but as Bullitt East head coach Mike Brangers noted, his field was so dry that it just sucked up the rain. There was also intermittent drizzle the afternoon of the game, but it stopped 10 minutes before the start of the game and did not return.

  • Lady Chargers sweep first round with NB and BC

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Unfortunately, volleyball in Bullitt County is the last of a dying breed in one important aspect -- the sport is the last in which all three local programs still play each other home-and-away during the regular season.

    The first rotation of games started last Tuesday when Bullitt East defeated North Bullitt 3-0. On Monday of this week, the Lady Chargers were at home again and defeated Bullitt Central 3-1.

    On Thursday, North Bullitt and Bullitt Central will clash in an important 23rd District match in Shepherdsville.

  • Chargers start slow, then roll past Bears

    TAYLORSVILLE – Scoring in the final minute of the first half and then matching that with another touchdown less than two minutes into the second half, the Bullitt East Chargers buried some bad memories on Friday as they rolled past Spencer County 28-7.

  • BC scores 31 in second quarter to rout Valley

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – Exploding for 31 points in the second quarter, the Bullitt Central Cougars on Friday took care of business and defeated a young and inexperienced Valley squad 45-8.

         It really was a no-win situation for the Cougars as they were expected to roll over a Vikings’ squad that had already lost two lopsided games this season. Bullitt Central struggled a little early, but then rose to the occasion and did what was expected of them, winning a game that had a running clock for all of the second half.

  • Honoring the 1994 Team

     At halftime of Friday’s game against Waggener, Bullitt East held a 20th Anniversary Reunion for the 1994 football team that reached the state championship game before falling to Danville.

    At the start, Bullitt East principal Willie Foster, who played on that team, led the players, coaches and family members to the field.

    A special presentation was made to the team’s coach, Mike Egan.


  • NB’s schedule change means full slate of games on Friday

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – North Bullitt’s football schedule change means that there is a full slate of games on Friday for Bullitt County fans.

    In fact, North Bullitt will have the only home game this Friday as they will play host to North Oldham. Bullitt Central makes the short trip to Dixie Highway to take on Valley while Bullitt East will take a visit across Hwy-44 to take on Spencer County in what is a growing rivalry on the gridiron.

  • CC under the lights? BE and BC try it in E-town

     ELIZABETHTOWN – Normally, major Saturday high school cross-country meets are held in the mornings. A few are contested in the afternoon. During the week, some others are held after school.

    Rarely are cross-country meets held after dark.
