  • 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.

  • Maryville caps perfect run with...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- With its undefeated record and top seed on the line, the Maryville Patriots were not about to give their opponents any hope for an upset.

    In the championship game of the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League Little Bullitts division, Maryville jumped on top early and defeated the Brooks Saints 31-13.

    On the opening kickoff, Maryville went for the on-side kick and Garrett Coy recovered at the Patriot 33.

  • BC overcomes sluggish start,...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – Win and advance!

         That is the mantra of any team taking part in a single elimination bracket. There is no balloting and no points for style.

         Just win.

         That is what the Bullitt Central Cougars did on Friday, overcoming a poor first half and then playing just well enough over the final 24 minutes to beat visiting Jeffersontown 28-7 in the first-round of the Class 5-A play-offs.

  • Bulldogs continue to be post-...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON -- In the past two seasons, Bullitt East has re-established itself as a football title contender.

  • Grayson brings North Bullitt...

     LEITCHFIELD – Teams looking to pull the big upset can’t make mistakes, especially early mistakes.

         Just ask the North Bullitt Eagles.

         After struggling through the regular season with just one win, the Eagles felt like they had the opportunity at redemption with the start of the Class 5-A play-offs and a trip to Grayson County on Friday.

  • Mercy ends Lady Eagles'...

     VALLEY STATIION – Nobody likes to lose the final match of the regular season, especially when it comes on the big stage of a regional tournament.

         At times, the feelings are made worse if you are not competitive.

         However, for the North Bullitt volleyball program, the final match of the 2014 season will be one that they will never forget even if they did lose 25-6, 25-12, 25-3.

  • Cougars, Raiders ready to rock...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The last time Bullitt Central and Iroquois met on the football field, the Cougars rolled to a 63-24 victory during the 2010 season. The year before, the maroon and gray rolled to a 61-0 win.

    When the two teams collide on Friday in the second round of the Class 5-A, Region 2 play-offs, the only sure thing is that the score will not be as lopsided.
