  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Miscues costly as Chargers fall...

     MIDDLETOWN –Three turnovers and a pair of botched punt attempts that resulted in 60 yards of net losses were more than Bullitt East could overcome on Friday as the red and gold opened the 2015 season with a 28-14 loss to Eastern.

    While any loss is disappointing, veteran Charger head coach Darrell Vincent saw enough of a silver lining to believe that his team is headed in the right direction.

  • 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.

  • Ample rain should mean bountiful...

     FRANKFORT – It is the third week of August and already it is the third wettest summer on record for Frankfort and the fifth wettest for Louisville. Corn fields across most of Kentucky look robust as do pastures, yards and soybean fields.

    This portends excellent conditions for the dove season opener on Tuesday, Sept. 1.

  • 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.
