  • Charger soccer ready to soar in new alignment

          MOUNT WASHINGTON - No soccer team is happier with realignment than the Bullitt East Chargers and veteran head coach Mike Brangers.

         Over the past 25 years, the Chargers have never won a district soccer title, this despite the fact that they have occasionally been ranked among the top 25 teams in the state and have consistently posted winning records. Twice recently the red and gold did reach a district soccer final, losing to Bethlehem both times, and then lost in the first game of the regional tournament.

  • Lady Eagle soccer has some holes to fill, but future bright

          HEBRON ESTATES - The North Bullitt Lady Eagle soccer program didn't suffer graduation losses any worse than most years in terms of numbers.

         However, coach Ryan Bringhurst's second team has one gaping hole to fill entering the 2012 season next week. Gone is senior Halee Heltsley who scored 37 goals last season and had 100 goals in her North Bullitt career. Heltsley is now playing soccer at Mississippi State University.

  • East girls' golf rebuilding, but Oder feels confident

          MOUNT WASHINGTON - You can't blame Bullitt East girls' golf coach Andy Oder if he thinks the 2012 season is déjà vu.

         The veteran coach, entering his sixth season at the helm, is pretty much starting from scratch with this year's team. The Lady Chargers have no seniors, and only one junior, this fall and none of the players has been in the program for more than two seasons. Over the last two seasons, the program has lost eight seniors.

  • Lindsey Wilson lands the services of BC’s Craddock

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Just blame it on the paperwork. That must have been it as Bullitt Central senior point guard Caleb Craddock was seldom slow to do anything.

  • NB’s Evans ready to keep UK football players healthy

     HEBRON ESTATES - Not every college athletic signing is for the biggest, strongest or fastest high school senior.

  • NB’s King headed west to play his college baseball

     HEBRON ESTATES - Name a position on the baseball diamond and North Bullitt senior Jesse King probably played that spot at least once during his high school career.

  • BC names Kyle Roach new Lady Cougar coach

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Bullitt Central wasn’t without a girls’ basketball coach for very long.

  • 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.
