  • Lady Chargers learn they have...

     CEDAR GROVE – It wasn’t exactly the performance that Bullitt East Lady Charger head coach Larry Steinmetz was looking for on Saturday in the Schmid Funeral Home Bluegrass Invitational at Heritage Hill Golf Club, but there were enough bright spots to give the coach hope for the rest of the season.

    The not so good news was that the team finished with a 466 total on the day, well off the winning score of 313 shot by both Elizabethtown and Paul Dunbar. That was only good for 16th in a field of 19 teams.

  • Clark Teague takes over BC...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After spending 28 years on the sidelines, Clark Teague stepped from the playing field to an office job over the summer, becoming the new athletic director at Bullitt Central.

    Teague takes over for Mike Gossett who stepped down after two years to return to the sidelines as the head football coach at Southern High School.

    Despite the move of Gossett to Southern, his wife, Tiffany, remains at Bullitt Central and is now Teague’s administrative assistant.

  • BE playing volleyball in Jaguars...

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – The Bullitt East Lady Chargers may have thought they were ready to make a move on national power Mercy this season in volleyball, but at least after the first eight days of the season, coach Ed Fisher’s team still has a lot of work to do just to be competitive with one of the top program’s in the country.

  • Defense rallies late to secure a...

     STANFORD, KENTUCKY – Bullitt Central’s high-powered offense was just that on Friday in the season-opening game against Madison Southern, but it was the Cougars’ defense that stepped up at the end to secure a 35-27 victory over the Eagles.

    The game was played at Lincoln County High School as part of the Death Valley Bowl.

    Bullitt Central scored on its first four possessions and seemingly had the game in hand up 14-0 after one quarter and leading 35-21 heading into the fourth quarter.

  • North sets off fireworks in win...

     VERSAILLES -- Any coach can draw up the plays to make his or her team successful.

    But what does it take to go on the road and ruin the home team’s fireworks display on the opening night of the season?

    It takes a coaching staff with a team full of players who have heart, determination and fight.

    For Adam Billings, in his first game at the helm of the North Bullitt Eagles, he got all of that and a lot more.

    His team was singing the fight song in front of a stunned Woodford County fan base after an exciting 37-32 victory.

  • Blue Lick runs out of gas in...

     SAUK PRAIRIE, WIS. -- Heading into the Ohio Valley 16-18 Regional tournament, Blue Lick manager Tommy Parker didn’t have a lot of extreme hopes.

    With nine players on the trip after winning the state tournament, Parker knew it would be tough to bring home a championship.

    However, the local team surprised everyone by reaching the championship game last Sunday.

    But with a lot of tired bodies and sore arms, Blue Lick fell just short, losing 4-0 to the host Sauk Prairie team.

  • All three area teams hit the...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The start of the high school football season on Friday will mean road trips for all three Bullitt County teams this week.

    This will be the third straight season that  a Bullitt County team has played in the Death Valley Bowl at Lincoln County High School. The past two years it was Bullitt East (posting a 1-1 mark) and now Bullitt Central has taken that spot as they will take on Madison Southern in the second of the two games on Friday.

  • Chargers ready to rely on strong...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Can interior line play carry a high school football team?

    Bullitt East head coach Darrell Vincent is certainly hoping that can be the case, at least early in the season, as the Chargers need to rebuild their ‘skilled’ positions.

    The good news is that the Chargers have the perfect offense, the split-back veer, to let the line carry the day. This won’t be the first time over the last 30 years that the highly successful program has had to lean on its line at some point in a season.

  • Dukes/Lawson combo will make BC...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Change will certainly be evident when the Bullitt Central Cougars open the 2015 football season on Friday when the maroon and gray takes on Madison Southern in the Death Valley Bowl at Lincoln County High School.

    Gone is arguably the best senior class of the past 40 years, a group that played a big role in the program’s 9-3 record a year ago that included a Class 5-A district title along with a post-season win over Jeffersontown before the season ended with a 14-0 loss to Iroquois.
