  • Mount Washington Middle School...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – On Oct. 30, Mount Washington Middle School placed a plaque in the gym to honor Omer Stallings, who passed away over the summer.

    Mount Washington Middle School teacher Doug Soards said a few words at the event which was attended by members of the Stallings’ family. Soards message that night is included below.

     

    As many of you are aware, on July 2nd of tis year, we lost a vital part of no only our Mount Washington community, but our Lady General family.

  • Leasor stepping down after...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – This time, Bullitt Central football coach Danny Leasor got to go out on his terms.

    Following eight seasons on his second stint as the head coach of the Cougars, Leasor is stepping down after one of the best seasons in the program’s history. Bullitt Central finished this past season with a 9-3 record, tying the mark of the 1990 team, which he also coached, as the most productive for the program since 1979.

    The news that Leasor is retiring is not new news. Leasor had announced before this season began that it would be his last.

  • It will be hard to separate...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – For a coach who would only commit to being on the job for four years when he was hired in 2007, Bullitt Central football coach Danny Leasor surprised even himself when he stayed eight years at the helm of the Cougar program.

  • Without key weapons, Cougars...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – The Bullitt Central Cougars’ dream season came to a sudden end on Friday night with a bad five-minute span to end the first half that the maroon and gray could not overcome in a 14-0 loss to Iroquois.

         The setback closed Bullitt Central’s season at 9-3 and was the final game as head coach for veteran Danny Leasor who before the campaign had announced that this would be his last season at the helm.

  • Injuries are a very frustrating...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The three Bullitt County high school football coaches don’t agree on much, and right now they aren’t agreeing on much at all, but the one common thing they can agree on is that injuries affect your season more than any other aspect.

         Worse, no matter what you do, you can’t plan for them and you can’t prevent them.

         Injuries just happen. Sometimes they happen in practice and other times in games. Injuries can happen before the season starts or in the final game.

  • Poppell rallies for sixth-place...

     LEXINGTON – In a race in which half of the top eight finishers were freshmen or younger, a little experience paid off on Saturday for Bullitt East junior Sierra Poppell at the Class AAA Kentucky State Cross-Country Championships at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington.

    One of the top runners in the state this season, Poppell got off to a slow start in the 5,000-meter race and was closer to 20th than first after the first mile. But didn’t panic or push. The junior stayed the course and let the race come to her.

  • Red beats Gold for best in city...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Bullitt East head football coach Darrell Vincent had the opportunity to stay in the end zone as a neutral observer.

    But what he got to see Saturday in the A Division championship game for the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League was the future of Bullitt East.

    In the first year of the newly-revamped A Division, it would be East Charger Red versus East Charger Gold.

    To make the Bullitt East fans feel even more at home, the goalpost padding was brought down from Mount Washington.

  • Maryville completes a perfect...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - When your defense gives up 12 points in a season and your offense scores over 400, you would expect to be in the championship game.

    The Maryville Patriots capped off an unbeaten season with a 26-6 victory in the ‘B’ Division of the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League.

    The Patriots turned back the third-seed Mount Washington Colts.

    The first quarter saw both defenses in control. It wasn’t until 24 seconds remained in the first quarter that the Patriots moved the scoreboard.

  • Early offense propels Old Mill...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Before the season started, Brandon Egan didn’t know what type of football team he had.

    But, after a couple of pre-season practices, Egan quickly knew that his Old Mill Bengals would be a very good team.

    That analysis was a good one as the Bengals went undefeated.

    In the championship game of the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League, the Bengals defeated the Lebanon Junction Jaguars for the Pee Wee title.

    “It’s been a great season,” said Egan.
