     SHEPHERDSVILLE – It will be a battle between rivals and friends on Friday when Bullitt Central makes the short trip to Okolona to take on fellow Class 5-A foe Southern.

    The Trojans are now coached by Mike Gossett who worked as an assistant coach at Bullitt Central the past eight years. For many of those seasons Gossett was the ‘Coach in Waiting’ when Danny Leasor was hired. Instead, Leasor stayed eight years and three years ago Gossett moved from coaching to being the school’s athletic director.

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – With a year together under their belts, Bullitt Central volleyball coach Karen Vogt feels that she and her team are leaps and bounds ahead of where they were at the start of last season.

    With that in mind, the players and coaches are focused on winning a district title for the first time since 2010.

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The first of the intra-county battles of the fall will take place on Thursday when Bullitt Central visits North Bullitt in a key volleyball match.

  • Outlook points to another...

     FRANKFORT – Kentucky receives national acclaim for the quality of its deer herd, and the numbers help draw the attention.

    The state has produced hundreds of trophy-class bucks over the past five seasons and hunters last season combined to take 138,899 deer overall. It was the second highest harvest total on record behind only the 2013-14 season.

  • BE’s Poppell, BC’s Mitchell...

     LOUISVILLE – The high school cross-country season got started over the weekend when the programs at both Bullitt East and Bullitt Central competed in the huge Tiger Run at Champions Park in Louisville.

    Some of the races had over 300 runners taking part.

    As will be the case for most of this fall, the spotlight will be on Bullitt East senior Sierra Poppell, who is one of the top returning runners in the state, having finished sixth in last year’s Class AAA Kentucky State Championships.

  • North doubles victory total in...

     HEBRON ESTATES -- Football games are not won or lost on Friday nights.

    They are won or lost during the week in practice.

    North Bullitt head coach Adam Billings felt pretty good after Wednesday’s practice.

    “It was a great practice,” said the first-year Eagle head coach. “The players are hungry.”

    After going on the road to defeat Woodford County, North Bullitt did something Billings, or many of his players, may not have dreamed possible -- defeated Southern to go 2-0 on the season.

  • Cougars score twice late to beat...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE –After falling behind 20-13 with less than four minutes remaining in the third quarter, the Bullitt Central offense scored twice over the next eight minutes and then let the defense do the rest on Friday as the Cougars moved to 2-0 with a 26-20 win at home over Fairdale.

    This was the second time this season the Cougars have led by a single score down the stretch and both times the defense has stepped up and made the plays to secure a win.

  • East’s early-season woes...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON –The rocky start to the 2015 football season for the Bullitt East Chargers got a lot bumpier on Friday as the red and gold fell behind 28-0 in the first quarter before losing to visiting Martha Layne Collins on Friday 55-14.

    The 55 points is the most the Chargers have allowed in a loss (BE beat Nelson County 67-59 two years ago) since  Aug. 27, 2010 in a 63-12 loss to Holy Cross. It was the first time that the Chargers have had a running clock against them since losing to Collins 52-7 midway through the 2010 season.
