     A list of updated scores from Bullitt County high school football games during the 2016 season. Check Monday's edition of The Pioneer News and www.pioneernews.net for full coverage of all games.


    OCTOBER 28:

    All three Bullitt County teams are off this week. The Class 5-A playoffs will start the week of Nov. 4. All three teams will participate.

    Final regular season records:

  • A new era in Charger football under Sander

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – It will be the dawn of a new era in Bullitt East football on Friday when first-year head coach Mark Sander leads his team onto the field at home against Eastern High School.

  • New coach means new look for ‘16 Cougars

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Last season, the Bullitt Central Cougars filled the Friday night skies with footballs led by quarterback Cameron Dukes and wide receiver Chase Craddock.

    The year before that, the maroon and gray put the ball in the hands of running back Trevor Carnell and let him carry the load.

  • McDonald makes it four Chargers going to Brescia

        MOUNT WASHINGTON – It’s all about team.
        Having good teammates paid big dividends for Bullitt East baseball standout Zach McDonald this summer when he received and accepted an offer to continue his diamond career at Brescia University in Owensboro.
        McDonald becomes the fourth, and final, Charger player to sign with Bearcats’ head coach Andrew Dickson.

  • BC’s youth hoping to learn from past success

        SHEPHERDSVILLE – No matter how you look at it, Bullitt Central’s boys’ soccer program had a breakout season in 2015.
        For the first time ever, the team won a 23rd District title, beating Southern 1-0 on penalty kicks, and then the Cougars beat Bullitt East 4-3 for the first regional win in program history. The run didn’t end until a 3-0 loss to Fairdale on the artificial turf at Mercy High School in the Sixth Region semi-finals.

  • Eagles look for rise to top of the district

        HEBRON ESTATES – North Bullitt boys’ soccer coach Eddie Fightmaster wants more.
        The second year Eagle head coach wants more players.
        Heading into Monday’s season-opener against DeSales, North Bullitt has just 20 players in the program. With one of those players being an eighth-grader, that leaves just 19 players for varsity contests.
        With a better than average season a year ago and stability at the top, the coach thought his numbers would be improved.

  • Top end is strong, but Eagles seeking depth

     HEBRON ESTATES – After going from 1-10 to 9-3 in the first year under head coach Adam Billings, it might have seemed that football would be king at North Bullitt.

    But, heading into his second season, Billings seems to be doing more rebuilding that he did when he arrived. The entire program has just 55 players and on a tough Friday night Billings doesn’t expect to use more than 20 to 22 players.

  • BE’s Krommenacker set to join teammates at Brescia

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The baseball pipeline between Mount Washington and Owensboro is running at full speed this summer as Bullitt East baseball standout Derrick Krommenacker recently signed to play for Brescia University starting in the fall.

    When all is said and done, four players from the Charger team that reached the Final Four of the Kentucky State Baseball Tournament, will sign with the Bearcats and head coach Andrew Dickson.

  • Hoffman takes over third team to battle Mercy

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – As if he didn’t butt heads with Mercy’s high-powered athletic program enough already as Bullitt East’s softball and bowling coach, now Ricky Hoffman is taking on the biggest challenge of all -- battling the Jaguars in volleyball.

  • Higgs set to lead North volleyball into long future

     HEBRON ESTATES – Five coaches in five seasons.

    Just think how good North Bullitt’s volleyball program could be with stability at the top.
