  • East splits games in Kentucky

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – Before heading out for their annual spring break trip to Florida, the Bullitt East Chargers split a pair of baseball games early last week, beating Southern 16-0 before falling at Christian Academy 6-0 a day later.

    A game on Thursday against a visiting team from Wisconsin was rained out.

    Competing at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Florida, on the property of Walt Disney World, the red and gold got the week off on the right foot on Sunday, beating Passaic Valley High School out of New Jersey by a 6-1 count.

  • Adam Billings takes over NB...

    HEBRON ESTATES-- Ten days ago, Adam Billings was not even aware that the head football coaching position was open at North Bullitt.
        Less than a week later, after a whirlwind romance, Billings was hired last Wednesday as the sixth head coach to lead the Eagle program over the last 39 years.
        Billings, who grew up in Bullitt County and played in the Cedar Grove Vikings' organization, replaces Brett Newton who stepped down last month after coaching the Eagles for the past 18 seasons.

  • Numbers game to be job one at...

    HEBRON ESTATES-- In Adam Billings' first season as the head coach at Elizabethtown High School, in 2011, the Panthers were pretty much down right horrible.
        That Class 3-A Elizabethtown team failed to win a game and were outscored by an average of 45 points each Friday night. That happens when you have just 35 players in your program.

  • Tennis teams finish first half...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE -- The changing weather has been tough this spring.
    Warm, hot days followed by winter winds.
    With about a month to go until regional competition, teams were getting in some final matches in the days before spring break.

  • BE's Mattingly to wrestle...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON-- After falling in love with the sport as an eighth-grader, now Bullitt East senior Dylan Mattingly can continue competing in wrestling for the next four years after signing with St. Catharine College recently.
        The overall situation worked out just fine for Mattingly. St. Catharine just completed its first season of wrestling after becoming only the third school in the state to offer the sport, joining Campbellsville and Lindsey Wilson.

  • Softball teams still looking to...

     HEBRON ESTATES – Both North Bullitt and Bullitt East played two softball games last week, unfortunately, they didn’t get to play each other.

    The only meeting of the regular season between the two county rivals was scheduled for Mount Washington on Thursday, but a heavy downpour at mid-afternoon that day washed out any hope of the game being played even with the fact that it had rained the previous night.

  • Oops, stuff happens. Second...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Oops.

    Sometimes the timing is just not right in a twice weekly newspaper.

    That was certainly true in Monday’s edition of The Pioneer News as the second page of the sports section had the quarter-page advertisement for the pre-sale of the book that the Cats’ Pause publication was selling about the University of Kentucky’s ‘remarkable’ basketball season.

  • North continues to play well...

     LOUISVILLE -- It was the team’s only game of the week but it was an important one.

    The North Bullitt Eagles went to Male High on Tuesday to battle on of the region’s perennial powerhouses.

    And the team came home with an impressive 5-4 victory.

    But while it may have been the first Eagle victory over the Bulldogs in recent history, Wise was impressed that the post-game celebration was nothing out of the ordinary.

  • Why I Coach

    April 2, 2015

     

    TO: Bullitt County HS Football Fans

     

    Today, I literally turn over the keys to North Bullitt football to my successor, Adam Billings. I wish him complete and early success as he will be coaching “my” boys for the next few years. I thank everyone associated with North Bullitt football for their support. Coach Vincent, you just became the “old man” in the county!
