  • Lady Chargers learn they have...

     CEDAR GROVE – It wasn’t exactly the performance that Bullitt East Lady Charger head coach Larry Steinmetz was looking for on Saturday in the Schmid Funeral Home Bluegrass Invitational at Heritage Hill Golf Club, but there were enough bright spots to give the coach hope for the rest of the season.

    The not so good news was that the team finished with a 466 total on the day, well off the winning score of 313 shot by both Elizabethtown and Paul Dunbar. That was only good for 16th in a field of 19 teams.

  • Ample rain should mean bountiful...

     FRANKFORT – It is the third week of August and already it is the third wettest summer on record for Frankfort and the fifth wettest for Louisville. Corn fields across most of Kentucky look robust as do pastures, yards and soybean fields.

    This portends excellent conditions for the dove season opener on Tuesday, Sept. 1.

  • Five practice games then five...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Area high school football coaches don’t often agree on a lot, but in the pre-season interviews with each of them this season, each pretty much sang the same tune when it came to the schedules they will be facing.

    The KHSAA may say that a school can only scrimmage once before the season starts on Aug. 21, but all three coaches feel like the first five games of the season are little more than scrimmages before the teams enter district play starting on Sept. 25.

  • Ruff takes over North Bullitt...

     HEBRON ESTATES – The North Bullitt Lady Eagles have had a lot of success on the volleyball court in recent seasons, having won four consecutive district titles as well as twice reaching the semi-finals of the regional tournament.

    However, the green and gold have not been as successful in the coaching department. The program has had three different coaches over the past four seasons.

  • Lady Eagles appear ready to...

     HEBRON ESTATES – The North Bullitt Lady Eagles have won three straight district titles and have reached the semi-finals of the Sixth Region Tournament each of those three seasons and now head coach Amber Mink is looking for the team to take another step forward.

    One of the first moves in that direction is that Mink is returning for a second season. The Lady Eagle program had three different coaches in one-year stints before Mink returned this year.

  • Lady Charger volleyball looking...

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East volleyball program is thinking big for the 2015 season – really big.

    With the possibility of putting three players on the court who stand 6-feet tall or taller, the Lady Chargers will be as big as any team veteran head coach Ed Fisher has ever had.

  • Lady Chargers set to ascend to...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Despite the loss of two of the state’s top players, one each over the past two seasons, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers are seeking to reach the top of the Sixth Region after falling to Mercy in the championship game each of those seasons.

    Bullitt East has also lost to Mercy in the last three championship games of the 24th District Tournament.

  • All three area teams ready for a...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After opening the season with all three teams on the road, Week II will have all three Bullitt County football teams at home on Friday.

  • Miscues costly as Chargers fall...

     MIDDLETOWN –Three turnovers and a pair of botched punt attempts that resulted in 60 yards of net losses were more than Bullitt East could overcome on Friday as the red and gold opened the 2015 season with a 28-14 loss to Eastern.

    While any loss is disappointing, veteran Charger head coach Darrell Vincent saw enough of a silver lining to believe that his team is headed in the right direction.

  • Defense rallies late to secure a...

     STANFORD, KENTUCKY – Bullitt Central’s high-powered offense was just that on Friday in the season-opening game against Madison Southern, but it was the Cougars’ defense that stepped up at the end to secure a 35-27 victory over the Eagles.

    The game was played at Lincoln County High School as part of the Death Valley Bowl.

    Bullitt Central scored on its first four possessions and seemingly had the game in hand up 14-0 after one quarter and leading 35-21 heading into the fourth quarter.
