  • Football scrimmages Friday; Breeden wins top tourney

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Football fans can get a preview glimpse of their favorite team on Friday as all three Bullitt County teams will conduct their only scrimmages of the season.

    Bullitt Central will start the action as the Cougars are set to scrimmage Seneca at 6:30 p.m. That action will be at Bullitt Central under new head coach Tye Lawson.

    At 7 p.m., Bullitt East will take the field against Fern Creek. That game will be right up the road from Mount Washington at Fern Creek.

  • Lady Chargers set to ascend to top of the regional battle

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Despite the loss of two of the state’s top players, one each over the past two seasons, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers are seeking to reach the top of the Sixth Region after falling to Mercy in the championship game each of those seasons.

    Bullitt East has also lost to Mercy in the last three championship games of the 24th District Tournament.

  • Lady Eagles appear ready to outscore its soccer opponents

     HEBRON ESTATES – The North Bullitt Lady Eagles have won three straight district titles and have reached the semi-finals of the Sixth Region Tournament each of those three seasons and now head coach Amber Mink is looking for the team to take another step forward.

    One of the first moves in that direction is that Mink is returning for a second season. The Lady Eagle program had three different coaches in one-year stints before Mink returned this year.

  • Tracks, rest room will be re-bid later this year

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Scott Kremer keeps looking for a nugget of good news to bring to the Bullitt County Public School Board.

    The owner of Studio Kremer Architects won’t get that opportunity for at least the next several months.

    Kremer was commissioned to lead a project that would improve track and field conditions at each of the high schools.

    As part of that project, North Bullitt High School was seeking to have rest room renovations at the football field.

  • Lady Charger volleyball looking for banner season

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East volleyball program is thinking big for the 2015 season – really big.

    With the possibility of putting three players on the court who stand 6-feet tall or taller, the Lady Chargers will be as big as any team veteran head coach Ed Fisher has ever had.

  • Chargers hope to bounce back from unfulfilling season

     MOUNT WASHINGTON –Coming off a season in which the team won just four games, the lowest total in a dozen years under head coach Mike Brangers, the Bullitt East Chargers are looking to get back to a winning formula this year.

    The team has nine seniors and Brangers is looking for an improved output from his team…if it can stay healthy. It was injuries that took the starch out of the team in 2014.

  • Fightmaster takes over at the helm of the Eagle’s program

     HEBRON ESTATES –Playing for a banner.

    That is the way that first-year North Bullitt boys’ soccer coach Eddie Fightmaster describes things as the green and gold look to overcome what was a trying season in 2015.

  • Jamison looking to build a program with Cougar boys

      SHEPHERDSVILLE –’Winning’ and ‘soccer’ are not two words that appear in the same sentence very often when it comes to the Bullittt Centrla boys’ program.

    A year ago the Cougars won just four games and two of those wins came against Evangel. The best news was that the Cougars did win a post-season game, but that was only after they had the number four seed and beat fifth-seeded Evangel in the opening game of the 24th District Tournament.

  • BE’s Davenport follows baseball pipeline to Spalding

     MOUNT WASHINGTON –Life is good when the college that you want to attend, wants you.

    That was the story earlier this summer for Bullitt East senior pitcher Hayden Davenport when Spalding University head coach Jeremy Sleetlinger came calling. The Golden Eagles were exactly the school that Davenport was looking to attend.

    That desire had been present since former Bullitt East teammate Jacob Woodruff joined the Spalding program two years ago. A year ago, Bullitt East pitcher Chase Patton also joined the Golden Eagles’ program.

  • Fall sports previews to start in next week’s editions

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Summer is over!

    I can now make that official statement as I begin to work on previews for all the fall sports teams. The previews will start in Monday’s edition and that will allow basically four issues for golf, soccer, volleyball and football previews.

    I really can’t give you any type of order in which they will run other than to say that football previews won’t run until the week of Aug. 17.
