  • Lady Charger golf rebuilding;...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After years of being one of the better girls’ golf teams in the area, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers are going through a transition stage this year.

    That transition includes both players and at coach.

    Director of the Kentucky Golf Coaches’ Association.

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Addition by subtraction.

    The Greater Bullitt County Football League, making fundamental changes for the first time since the creation of the Little Bullitts age group and the addition of the Pleasant Grove program more than 15 years ago, will work to make the ‘A’ Division a more competitive group this fall by realigning that age group into six teams instead of the nine programs that will continue to make up the other three age divisions.

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Change is never easy, even when it is obviously necessary.

  • Charger boys look to break...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Over the past two seasons, since his team has moved into the 24th District, veteran Bullitt East boys’ coach Mike Brangers has been relatively pleased with the team’s play during the regular season.

         It has been in the post-season where the red and gold have struggled. In the two seasons under the new alignment, the Chargers have yet to advance out of district play to the Sixth Region Tournament, despite being competitive.

  • Local golf teams seek success

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Young and talented.

         Those are two words that any high school coach loves to utter and that phrase fits in perfectly with the Bullitt East boys’ golf program as they head into the 2014 season.

         On a team that has only one senior, Hunter Simmons, the Chargers are ready to make some noise this fall, especially when the Region 3 Tournament rolls around on Sept. 30 at the Elizabethtown Country Club.

    SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Earlier in the year, Frank Smith had won a sectional honor for his archery skills.
