     SHEPHERDSVILLE – It was ‘Black Monday’ for Bullitt County volleyball as all three of the local squads were knocked off in the opening round of the Sixth Region Tournament.

    Bullitt Central, coming off the championship in the 23rd District Tournament last week, got to play at home on Monday against 21st District runner-up Pleasure Ridge Park, but a slow start had the Lady Cougars playing from behind the rest of the night as they lost 25-10, 25-23, 25-18.

      BARDSTOWN – Bullitt Central’s two cross-country programs capped off an impressive fall last Tuesday with the boys’ team winning the Mid-Kentucky Athletic Conference Championship while the girls’ team finished second.

    The MKAC is a somewhat informal group of schools from Bullitt, Nelson, LaRue and Washington County who compete for titles against each other in both cross-country and track.

    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:

  • BE pulls away late to secure a...

     BUCKNER -- It was just a little bit different on Thursday for the Bullitt East Chargers.

    Its game against Oldham County was a night earlier.

    And, due to senior activities on the field, warmups had to be moved to a practice field.

    Plus, most of the game was played in a steady rain.

    But, despite all the hurdles, coach Mark Sander’s Chargers fared quite well in its season finale.

    Bullitt East had over 500 yards of total offense en route to its 28-7 victory.

  • NB again falls a conversion...

     PEWEE VALLEY – The battle for the top spot in Class 5-A, District 3 lived up to all the hype on Friday before a failed two-point conversion left South Oldham with a 35-34 victory over North Bullitt.

    This was the second straight year that the final district game of the season matched these two teams for the top spot. It was winner take all for the number one seed in the post-season. With the win, the Dragons repeat as district champions.

  • Cougars rout Nelson as seven...

     BARDSTOWN – Quick, efficient and to the point.

    The Bullitt Central Cougars took care of business in meticulous fashion on Friday, running through a struggling Nelson County team to the tune of a 53-7 victory.

    With the win, in the final district game of the season, the Cougars wrapped a berth in the Class 5-A play-offs. Bullitt Central finished tied for second in Region 3 along with their two county rivals, North Bullitt and Bullitt East, with 3-2 records.

  • Bullitt Central wins district...

        OKOLONA -- For the past three years, the finals of the 23rd District volleyball tournament matched North Bullitt and Bullitt Central.
        In each of those three years, the Lady Eagles went into the Sixth Region tournament as the district champs.
        But, this year was different.
        The Bullitt Central Lady Cougars powered through a three-set victory over North Bullitt, 25-20, 25-23, 25-16.
        But the championship trophy may have actually been won on Oct. 3.

  • So close yet so far as BE falls...

        LOUISVILLE -- Each year, Bullitt East coach Steve Gentry feels his program gets a little bit closer to matching the Mercy Jaguars.
        On Friday, the final of the Sixth Region soccer tournament couldn’t be decided in regularion. And it couldn’t be decided in two five-minute extra periods.
        So, it came down to a five-player shootout and the host Mercy team won its fifth consecutive finale against the Lady Chargers.

  • NB loses 1-0 semifinal; BE beats...

        LOUISVILLE -- For the fifth straight year, it will be a Bullitt East-Mercy final for the Sixth Region girls’ soccer title.
        But, this year, the route each team had to follow was a bit different.
        Bullitt East played Butler in the semifinal on Wednesday. Normally, it is the Lady Chargers against the North Bullitt Lady Eagles.
        And, this year, the Lady Eagles had to face Mercy on its home field.
