  • Lady Chargers pull away after...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – In the only regular season meeting this fall between two of the top programs in the Sixth Region, Bullitt East kept its slight edge over North Bullitt in girls’ soccer with a 4-0 victory on Monday.

    While this was the only regular season meeting, it may not be the only meeting this season. In each of the past two seasons, the two rivals have ended up meeting in the Sixth Region semi-finals after North Bullitt won the 23rd District title and Bullitt East was the 24th District runner-up.

  • Leasor added another year after...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Bullitt Central football coach Danny Leasor has ‘retired’ before...more than once in fact.

    But this summer Leasor announced that this would be his final season at the helm of the Cougars. Of course, this is Leasor’s second stint at Bullitt Central, having coached at the school back in the 1980s before stepping down. He then was the head coach at Pleasure Ridge Park for a number of seasons before ‘retiring’ again.

  • Charger runners do well in early...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – While many of the local teams have already had a practice meet or run in cross-country relay meets, the real start of the high school running season started on Saturday with the Tiger Run at the site of the former River Road Golf Course with Bullitt East taking part.

    It was a good day for the top runners in both the boys’ and the girls’ program as junior Sierra Poppell finished eighth in a field of 181. On the boys’ side, junior Isaac Shelton finished 15th in a huge field of 237 runners.

  • North hurler Jacob Kelly commits...

     HEBRON ESTATES - As soon as he saw the campus, Jacob Kelly was hooked.

    After been on the radar of college baseball programs the past few years, the North Bullitt senior was ready to start narrowing the list of contenders.

    His list had dwindled and that included Murray State University, where his cousin, Clayton, will be a sophomore this year.

    But when the lefty hurler visited the Marshall University campus a couple of weeks ago, there was no need look any further.

  • Youth football is back in action...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Once again this season, The Pioneer news will run the results from the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League in each Wednesday edition during the season.

    The statistics used each week are provided to the newspaper by the league and the individual teams. Questions about yardage, scoring and tackles should be directed to the league and those teams.

  • NB’s schedule change means full...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – North Bullitt’s football schedule change means that there is a full slate of games on Friday for Bullitt County fans.

    In fact, North Bullitt will have the only home game this Friday as they will play host to North Oldham. Bullitt Central makes the short trip to Dixie Highway to take on Valley while Bullitt East will take a visit across Hwy-44 to take on Spencer County in what is a growing rivalry on the gridiron.

  • Tractor, truck pulling series on...

     CLERMONT -- Competitors on the Howes Lube/Battle of the Bluegrass Pulling Series will bring their high-powered vehicles to the fastest track in Kentucky on Saturday evening.

    After being rained out in August, the Battle of the Bluegrass series was rescheduled for Saturday, Sept. 13, at the Bullitt County Fairgrounds. The first race begins at 7 p.m.

  • North leads, falters, then...

    HEBRON ESTATES -- Veteran coach Brett Newton said that the most improvement a team makes is between the first and second games of the season.

  • Defense stifles Wildcats in...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON – It took a little time for Bullitt East to get rolling on Friday against visiting Waggener on offense, but the defense never wavered, allowing the Chargers to secure a 42-0 win.

         This wasn’t expected to be a tough outing for the Chargers and for the most part they took care of business. A handful of turnovers in the first half kept the Wildcats within 14-0 at halftime, but the red and gold scored the first time they had the ball in the second half and then kept up the strong play for the quick win.

  • 6-minute surge lifts BC to 2-0

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Since spring practice began back in April, Bullitt Central head coach Danny Leasor has been pushing his team to be in better shape this season so they can take control of games in the fourth quarter.

         Why wait to the fourth quarter?
