  • Bullitt Cup Saturday

     MOUNT WASHINGTON -- While the regular season started on Monday, the first ‘big’ event for the three area boy’s soccer teams comes on Saturday with the revival of the Bullitt Cup.

    The area teams will compete against each other for the Bullitt Cup and there will be an All-Tournament team selected.

    Action will start at 8 a.m. at Bullitt East with the Chargers taking on North Bullitt. At 10 a.m. Bullitt Central will play Bullitt East and then the final game at noon will have North Bullitt and Bullitt Central squaring off.

  • Central’s numbers still on the...

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – Instead of going for the quick fix when he took over the program a little over a year ago, Bullitt Central boys’ soccer coach Aaron Shaw has been working from the ground up to build a strong foundation.

    The progress is obvious as the Cougars have 38 players this season, perhaps the largest number in the program’s history. Shaw is pretty much planning on having completely separate varsity and junior-varsity squads this fall.

  • Nfor takes over the North...

     HEBRON ESTATES – A desire to get a little closer to his ‘other’ soccer job in Louisville has brought Emmanuel Nfor to the boys’ job at North Bullitt.

    A 14-year resident of the United States who was born in Cameroon, Nfor coaches soccer in the United program in Louisville. After graduating from Campbellsville University, Nfor was also coaching high school soccer in Frankfort at Western Hills High School. When the commute just got to be too much, Nfor looked into coaching jobs in the Louisville area and the North Bullitt position was posted.

  • Youth football set to start 46th...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Sometimes change is good, but there are also times where staying the course is the best option.

    That is the way that long-time Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League president Joe Downs sees the 2017 campaign. Major changes have been put on the back burner while small tweaks in what was working have moved forward.

    This is Downs’ 13th year at the helm of the county-wide league that has nine individual programs that conduct not only football games, but also oversee cheerleading and dance teams.

  • Concussion safeguards put into...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Much has been discussed about the long-term effects of head impacts and concussions in major sports.

    The research has increased tremendously in evaluating the risks of participating in contact sports.

    That is on the major league level.

    What about youth who participate in high school sports?

    Research is showing a similar trend — head impacts and concussions are a growing epidemic.

    The problem is how each school handles a player who might show concussion-like symptoms has been different.

  • Talent present at BC, but Kuehn...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – With winning records each of the past three seasons, two Bullitt Cup titles in the same span as well as two post-season wins, the Bullitt Central football program has succeeded recently despite having three different head coaches over that span.

    Now, the program is stable at the top with the return of head coach Matt Kuehn for a second season. The coach also feels that there is enough talent to add to the recent success story – barely.

  • North looking to continue...

     HEBRON ESTATES – After two seasons of getting too -- and winning -- post-season games, North Bullitt head coach Adam Billings has the program heading in the right direction.

    The coach doesn’t see any reason why that success should not continue this fall, but he does admit that there will be a little bit of a learning curve as the program has just six seniors and several of them are new to football.

  • A better start would greatly...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON – A year ago, the Bullitt East Chargers gave up 196 points in losing the first four games of the regular season.

    Unfortunately, that pretty much set the tone for the season, the first under head coach Mark Sander. The Chargers did go on to post three victories (a fourth win later had to be forfeited) and they did reach the play-offs, but lost the opening round game 32-13 to Madison Central.

    That left the program with a final 3-8 record.

  • North looking to regain top spot...

    HEBRON ESTATES – After a somewhat disappointing 9-23 record a year ago and a runner-up finish in the 23rd District after five straight championships, North Bullitt volleyball coach Keith Higgs is working on the philosophy this season that less is more.

    After keeping 32 players in the program a year ago, the second-year head coach this year opted to keep just 24 players. At this point, the varsity roster has just nine names, but some junior-varsity players could move up if needed.
