  • BC girls looking to build behind...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE – Upon first glance at the roster, the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars don’t look that young headed into the 2016-17 season.
        But upon a deeper look, this will very much be a learning season for a very inexperienced team.
        In fact, first-year head coach Josh Cravens, who takes over for Kyle Roach, there are just two players who have ever started a varsity game. Just one more has ever played in a varsity game.

  • Cougars will grow around 6-5...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE – New Bullitt Central boys’ basketball coach Jessie Curry is most definitely, young, aggressive and enthusiastic when it comes to leading the Cougars, but he is also realistic.
        After taking over for former head coach Joe Pat Lee, who he worked with for six years, Curry looked at the team’s returning prospects and quickly understood that his first job was building for the future.

  • East’s Duvall makes it official...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON – The recruiting game at the high end is never easy.
        Imagine having to go through it all twice.
        That is what happened to Bullitt East standout Lindsey Duvall. Finally, over the past ten days it all came to an end when the 5-9 shooting guard signed her national letter of intent with the University of Louisville.

  • Momentum ditches North in fourth

        CRESTWOOD – Everybody can define ‘momentum’, but no one can control it.
        That goes for North Bullitt football coach Adam Billings. His Eagles seemed to be in complete control early in the fourth quarter on Friday in the Class 5-A, Region 3 championship game at South Oldham. However, the Dragons wrestled momentum away from the green and gold and then scored the final 17 points of the game to win 45-42.

  • Eagles left it all on the field...

        CRESTWOOD – Emotional pain was the name of the game on Friday after the North Bullitt Eagles lost to South Oldham 45-42 in the championship game of Class 5-A, Region 3.
        Losing the last game of any season is difficult in any sport and it is certainly emotional as many of the key players are often seniors who are playing their final games for ‘their school.’

  • High flying Falcons race past...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- The North Falcons went to the air early and often en route to a 36-20 victory in the A Division of the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League on Sunday.

    By the end of the first eight-minute quarter, the Falcons held a commanding 22-0 lead over the Central Wildcats.

    Head coach Tracey Key’s team scored on just the second play of the game.

    On the first play, quarterback Andrew Hadley connected on a 75-yard bomb to Ricky Hill.

  • Big second half leads Old Mill...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- For the first 15 minutes of Sunday’s B Division title game, the defenses ruled.

    And then within 20 seconds, two touchdowns were put on the board.

    But, at the end of the chilly day, it would be the Old Mill Bengals who took home the championship trophy with a 22-6 victory over Lebanon Junction.

    The teams had split in the regular season but it was the Bengals who would control the action in the rubber match.

  • Colts win exciting Little...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- It was a remarkable way to start out Championship Sunday for the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League.

    The smallest of the combatants provided the most excitement of the day.

    In the end, a fumble in overtime provided the Mount Washington Colts with an exciting 12-6 victory over the Pleasant Grove Dolphins in the Little Bullitts division.

    The game was a defensive struggle as neither team could get close to the opposing goal line.

    The Dolphins got on the scoreboard first with 6:10 left in the game.

  • Dolphins break halftime tie to...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- With the game tied at halftime, the Pleasant Grove Dolphins would put two scores on the board to claim the Pee Wee championship.

    The Dolphins turned back the Old Mill Bengals 19-6.

    During the first half on the 70-yard field, the defense was king for both teams.

    With 3:18 in the second quarter, Old Mill’s Kaleb Serafin broke loose for a 53-yard touchdown run.

    But, on its next possession, Pleasant Grove tied the score at 6-6.

    The big run was a 13-yard play by Michael Wheatley on fourth and four.
