    ########################

  • Pair of 4-1 teams set to clash...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The Game.

    The first game in district play.

    The first game toward the Bullitt Cup.

    The only game of the season against your biggest rival.

  • East faces Nelson in district...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – After shedding a huge monkey off of their backs last week in getting the first win under head coach Mark Sander, the Bullitt East Chargers can get a jump in the Class 5-A, District 3 race on Friday when they travel to Bardstown to take on Nelson County.

  • A little rain can’t slow down...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Once again this season The Pioneer News will run the results from the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League in each Wednesday edition during the season.

    The statistics used each week are provided to the newspaper by the league and the individual teams. Questions about yardage, scoring and tackles should be directed to the league and those teams.

  • Charger Homecoming Court

      Bullitt East celebrated its 2016 Football Homecoming on Friday with the crowning of seniors Connor Green and Megan Lancaster as the King and Queen.

    Green is the son of Kim and Darryll Green.

    Lancaster, the daughter of Becky Lancaster and Eric and Patti Lancaster, could not attend the ceremony after being involved recently in a serious car accident.

    Representing Lancaster on Friday were her older sister, Cassie Lancaster, along with Kelsey Castle, Megan's best friend and Co-Captain of the Girls' Soccer Team with Lancaster.

  • Lady Chargers still can’t get...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – After a 3-3 first half that nobody expected, Bullitt East and Mercy settled into a second half dogfight in what is becoming one of the most anticipated battles in the Sixth Region.

    Finally, with the clock ticking below three minutes, Mercy earned a corner kick. The ball went into the box and Bullitt East pushed it out only to have Mercy sophomore Jillian Fries kick the ball along the ground where it slightly deflected off a Bullitt East defender and then easily past Bullitt East goalie Ninia Embry.

  • East volleyball far from perfect...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – As first-year Bullitt East volleyball coach Ricky Hoffman is quickly learning, his Lady Chargers have to play a nearly perfect game to compete with traditional power Mercy.

    Unfortunately, last week, in the regular season meeting, Bullitt East was far from perfect. In fact, the red and gold were flat and it took less than an hour for the Jaguars to record a 25-7, 25-10, 25-5 victory.

  • East and Central get soccer wins...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – It was a big week for local boys’ soccer fans as the second and third intra-county matches were contested on Tuesday and Thursday.

    In fact, the three teams played each other over an eight-day period. Before last week’s showdowns, Bullitt East had beaten Bullitt Central 4-1.

  • East has too much Glass in win...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – In the only intra-county volleyball match that Bullitt East will play this season, the Lady Chargers had too much size at the net for North Bullitt on Tuesday as the red and gold swept to a 25-20, 25-21, 25-21 victory.

    Mainly, the Lady Chargers just had too much Savannah Glass as the 6-foot-2 senior, five inches taller than any of the North Bullitt players, dominated play at the net.

  • NB’s Marion makes late choice to...

     HEBRON ESTATES – The end of his high school career was becoming a fond memory and the start of college was fast approaching.

    Still, three weeks into August and North Bullitt senior Noah Marion had yet to put his name on the dotted line. He pretty much knew where and what he wanted to do, but he had yet to make it official.

    Finally, after setting up a small gathering in the North Bullitt Media Center, Marion put pen to paper and signed to play baseball at Midway College in central Kentucky.
