  • Parsons ready to be front and 'center' for Bulldogs

    SHEPHERDSVILLE-- Bullitt East football player Justin Parsons put all of his eggs in one basket when it came to getting a college opportunity and it paid off recently when the senior signed to continue playing football at the next level for Union College in Barbourville, Kentucky.
        While Parsons would have gone to a larger school and just been a student, he decided that if he was going to continue playing football it would be at Union. That was the only school that he sent a tape too and the only school he visited to talk football.

  • Young area golfers start season strong

    LOUISVILLE -- The weather has not exactly been conducive to golf, but a handful of young local athletes tried to get a jump on the season recently when they competed in the Musselman-Dunn Golf Tour/KIA Match Play Championships at Seneca Golf Course.
        Many of the same players will compete on that tour throughout the spring and summer before wrapping up play and concentrating on the high school season which will start in the middle of July.

  • Rogers opts for football then selects the Bulldogs

    MOUNT WASHINGTON-- For most high school football players, the first step in the recruiting process is deciding on the level of play that best fits your ability.
        For Bullitt East senior Brandon Rogers there turned out to be a step that he had to make before he started shuffling through all the recruiting pitches. First, Rogers had to decide if he wanted to play football at the next level.

  • Softball teams still looking to get handle on the weather

     HEBRON ESTATES – Both North Bullitt and Bullitt East played two softball games last week, unfortunately, they didn’t get to play each other.

    The only meeting of the regular season between the two county rivals was scheduled for Mount Washington on Thursday, but a heavy downpour at mid-afternoon that day washed out any hope of the game being played even with the fact that it had rained the previous night.

  • Oops, stuff happens. Second season on Tuesday


    Sometimes the timing is just not right in a twice weekly newspaper.

    That was certainly true in Monday’s edition of The Pioneer News as the second page of the sports section had the quarter-page advertisement for the pre-sale of the book that the Cats’ Pause publication was selling about the University of Kentucky’s ‘remarkable’ basketball season.

  • East splits games in Kentucky

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – Before heading out for their annual spring break trip to Florida, the Bullitt East Chargers split a pair of baseball games early last week, beating Southern 16-0 before falling at Christian Academy 6-0 a day later.

    A game on Thursday against a visiting team from Wisconsin was rained out.

    Competing at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Florida, on the property of Walt Disney World, the red and gold got the week off on the right foot on Sunday, beating Passaic Valley High School out of New Jersey by a 6-1 count.

  • North continues to play well with 5-4 win at Male

     LOUISVILLE -- It was the team’s only game of the week but it was an important one.

    The North Bullitt Eagles went to Male High on Tuesday to battle on of the region’s perennial powerhouses.

    And the team came home with an impressive 5-4 victory.

    But while it may have been the first Eagle victory over the Bulldogs in recent history, Wise was impressed that the post-game celebration was nothing out of the ordinary.

  • Numbers game to be job one at North

    HEBRON ESTATES-- In Adam Billings' first season as the head coach at Elizabethtown High School, in 2011, the Panthers were pretty much down right horrible.
        That Class 3-A Elizabethtown team failed to win a game and were outscored by an average of 45 points each Friday night. That happens when you have just 35 players in your program.

  • Adam Billings takes over NB football program

    HEBRON ESTATES-- Ten days ago, Adam Billings was not even aware that the head football coaching position was open at North Bullitt.
        Less than a week later, after a whirlwind romance, Billings was hired last Wednesday as the sixth head coach to lead the Eagle program over the last 39 years.
        Billings, who grew up in Bullitt County and played in the Cedar Grove Vikings' organization, replaces Brett Newton who stepped down last month after coaching the Eagles for the past 18 seasons.

  • Why I Coach

    April 2, 2015


    TO: Bullitt County HS Football Fans


    Today, I literally turn over the keys to North Bullitt football to my successor, Adam Billings. I wish him complete and early success as he will be coaching “my” boys for the next few years. I thank everyone associated with North Bullitt football for their support. Coach Vincent, you just became the “old man” in the county!
