High School Sports

  • East/West Coaches Junior All-Star Game had local flavor

                   LOUISVILLE - Saturday night’s Kentucky High School Coaches Association East/West Junior All-Star Basketball Game at St. Xavier had a Bullitt County feel as two rising seniors and a former head coach were all part of the festivities.

                   This annual summer contest pits the best players from the Fifth and Sixth Regions (West) against the top players from the Seventh and Eighth Region (East).

  • BE’s McMillen joins group headed to Lindsey Wilson

     MOUNT WASHINGTON - Since the first of the year, Bullitt East senior Taylor McMillen was pretty much set on where he wanted to play his college football.

  • Shepherd picks baseball, then Tigers

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - Recruiting baseball players to small programs, even one as successful as Campbellsville University has, isn’t always about shoe leather hitting the road, at least not now in the day of video.
        Bullitt Central senior Damon Shepherd just shipped off a film of him playing for the Cougars to Tigers’ head coach Beauford Sanders. That was all it took. Sanders and his coaching staff got back with Shepherd and made an offer.

  • BC’s Richardson taking his golf game to Spalding

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Realizing that being part of something new and growing suited him just fine, Bullitt Central senior Jacob Richardson decided that signing on with the men’s golf program at Spalding University in Louisville was the best fit for him.

  • Summer Soccer Camp Fun

    There has been plenty of soccer action in Bullitt County since the end of the school year for both boys and girls.

    The annual Charger Youth Soccer Camp was held at Bullitt East under the direction of boys’ coach Mike Brangers.

    Last week, there was a new event at North Bullitt that was being conducted by Lady Eagle head coach Ryan Bringhurst and his staff.

  • Minyard decides on hoops future at Indiana Southeast

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Unlike many high school seniors, Bullitt Central's Seaera Minyard had to go through a lengthy checklist even before she started the process of selecting a college to attend.
     First and foremost, Minyard had to decide which sport she wanted to pursue at the next level. Or, she had to decide how many sports to consider.
     As is often the case, those things worked themselves out. When Minyard started talking to college basketball and softball coaches, she was getting better financial aide from basketball.

  • McKnight headed to Centre to continue basketball career

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Unlike some college seniors, Bullitt Central's Kaitlyn McKnight said that the recruiting process was never difficult for her.
     That was probably why McKnight was smiling throughout a ceremony this spring in the Bullitt Central library as she signed to play her college basketball at Centre College in Danville.
     McKnight will follow the same path as her high school coach. Bryan Bates also attended Centre College.

  • East boys' track ranked 5th in the state this season

     MOUNT WASHINGTON - Track and field in Kentucky is divided into three different classes and that is not going to change anytime soon.
     So, that means that we have three state champion boys' teams in any one season.
     This spring, Bullitt East had the best finish ever for a local squad, finishing fifth in the Boys' Class AA State Championships at the University of Louisville in May. North Bullitt finished 10th that day, another strong finish.

  • Dowell headed to Campbellsville to continue running

     HEBRON ESTATES - A few years ago, North Bullitt’s Michael Dowell wanted to be a basketball player.

  • BC has better in-house options than other times

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - The decision by Bryan Bates to step down last week as the head coach of the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars was a surprise, especially with the timing as most coaches announce such things in the spring.
