  • Dragons breath fire to end Chargers’ win streak

     CRESTWOOD – Things were so bad for the Bullitt East Chargers on Friday that they actually had to start on Thursday.

    It was on the final practice before the game against South Oldham when Charger head coach Darrell Vincent found out that junior quarterback Zack Kessler would not be able to play on Friday. Kessler, who already missed games earlier in the season with a shoulder injury, was still complaining about soreness there and a new inspection raised the concern of a broken bone.

  • East gets first shot at beating South Oldham

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Bullitt East will get the first shot at South Oldham this Friday as the Class 5-A, District 3 slate passes the halfway point.

    Over the final three weeks of district play South Oldham will face the three Bullitt County schools on consecutive Fridays. After Bullitt East this week, the Dragons will take on Bullitt Central and then finish with North Bullitt.

  • North secures No. 1 seed

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The outcome was never really in doubt, but it was still a celebration worth having after the North Bullitt Lady Eagles once again wrapped up the top seed for next week’s 23rd District Girls’ Soccer Tournament.

    By beating Bullitt Central 11-1, the Lady Eagles once again were undefeated within the district during the regular season. It is the fourth straight year, all four years of this alignment, that the green and gold have had the number one seed for the district tournament.

  • Lady Eagles get second net victory over Central

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Volleyball is really the only remaining sport where the three Bullitt County teams take the court against each other, each year, on a home-and-home basis.

    That is good for fans, but no longer means that the games are played for anything more than pride.

    That was the case on Tuesday of last week when North Bullitt traveled to Bullitt Central for the second meeting. In fact, it is probably the second of three meetings this fall between the 23rd District rivals.

  • BC’s Phillips has her best CC finish

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – With the high school cross-country season entering the final month, Bullitt Central senior Kelsey Phillips had an impressive run on Saturday, running through wet conditions at Tom Sawyer State Park in eastern Jefferson County to take first place in the Open Girls Race of the Greater Louisville Classic.

  • East boys ready to tee it up Tuesday at state golf

    MOUNT WASHINGTON – After playing a practice round on Monday, the Bullitt East Chargers will open play on Tuesday in the Leachman Buick-GMC-Cadillac/KHSAA Boys’ State Golf Tournament.

    Bullitt East will be competing at the Bowling Green Country Club which has a par-72 score over 6,795 yards.

  • Rain gets the best of all but E-town golfers

    CEDAR GROVE – Elizabethtown was the big winner on Tuesday at the Girls’ Third Region Golf Tournament at Heritage Hill Golf Course, but not until Mother Nature got in a few swings of her own.

    Playing in steady rain all day, the top female high school golfers in the area had a long day of slow play despite being able to ‘lift, clean and place’ any shots in the fairways under the brutal conditions.

  • Eagles take care of OC in rain

     BUCKNER -- Despite coming off an exciting victory the previous week against a county and despite playing a team which had not won a game this season, first-year North Bullitt head coach Adam Billings was not worried about a letdown.

    Coaching a team of players hungry for success, Billings knew from the week of practice that his Eagles were ready.

    What concerned the coach a little was the weather. For a second straight week, rain and wind was a constant for the entire contest against Oldham County.

  • The War!! East slogs to win over BC

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Playing football in a shower stall.

    That is pretty much what it felt like on Friday in the 27th renewal of The War, the annual battle between Bullitt East and Bullitt Central.

    Mother Nature made it a threesome on Friday as she battered both teams from the opening minute to the final horn with pelting rain and constant wind. The horrid conditions led to eight fumbles and six turnovers, although, there were no interceptions in 22 pass attempts.

  • THE WAR: District may trump rivalry in showdown

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – It will be a clash of philosophies on Friday when Bullitt Central heads across Highway-44 to battle Bullitt East in the 27th renewal of The War.

    On one had, there is a 4-2 Bullitt Central team that will put the ball in the air most of the time, a move that lengthens games. Bullitt East on the other hand wants to keep it on the ground and shorten the game.

    Sure, Bullitt Central head coach Tye Lawson would like to run the ball more, and better, but his heart, and best player Cameron Dukes, are better suited for the air game.
