  • High-scoring Andres headed to...

     HEBRON ESTATES – North Bullitt senior Katlyn Andres never saw a shot on the soccer field that she didn’t think she could get past the goalie.

    That confidence carried over to the Lady Eagle standout scoring 158 goals in 91 games in her four years on the North Bullitt varsity.

    With numbers and talent like that, colleges come calling and that was certainly the case for Andres who recently signed to play at college soccer at NCAA Division II Southern Indiana University in Evansville.

  • BE’s Messer to play football at...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Just call Bullitt East senior Josh Messer a trailblazer.

    When the Charger senior signed to play football at NCAA Division III Millikin University in Decatur, Illinois, he became the first Bullitt East athlete to head to that school. In fact, the Big Blue did not list any football players from Kentucky on its 2017 roster.

    Actually, Messer did more of the recruiting. He signed up on an online recruiting site and was discovered by Big Blue coaches. They saw film of Messer and initiated contact.

  • DREAM SEASON ENDS: Mercy too...

     VALLEY STATION – The first ever trip to a regional basketball championship game for the North Bullitt Lady Eagles ended in tears on Saturday as the green and gold fell to Mercy 64-48.

  • Lady Eagles crush Doss in semi-...

     VALLEY STATION – Winning a regional semi-final basketball game in Kentucky is never supposed to be easy or a given, but the North Bullitt Lady Eagles had that route on Wednesday as the green and gold crushed 22nd District runner-up Doss 56-22.

    The win moved the Lady Eagles into Saturday’s Sixth Region championship game, a game in which North Bullitt took on Mercy for the right to advance to this week’s Girls’ Kentucky State Basketball Tournament at Northern Kentucky University.

  • Mercy ends NB dream season in...

     VALLEY STATION -- A big crowd and a huge effort couldn’t  pull the North Bullitt Lady Eagles through in the Sixth Region final.

    The Lady Eagles fell to Mercy 64-48 in the championship  game Saturday at Valley High.

    Mercy jumped on top early and North Bullitt could not make a run. In fact, North Bullitt’s only lead of the game came on Hailey Free’s three-pointer to make it 5-4.

    The balanced attack of Mercy and foul troubles for the Lady Eagles were too much for North Bullitt to overcome.

  • Early hole is more than BC can...

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – A little bit of a nervous start proved fatal for the Bullitt Cougars on Tuesday in the opening round of the Class Act Boys’ Sixth Region Tournament.

    Playing at home for the first time in a regional tournament in four years, the Cougars fell behind Jeffersontown 27-8 midway through the second quarter. Bullitt Central rallied to within 28-22 at halftime and when Jacob Mann drained a three-pointer to open the second half, the maroon and gray were within three points.

  • THE CURSE IS OVER: North pulls...

     HEBRON ESTATES – How Sweet It Is!

    Following 12 years of frustration that included 25 consecutive losses to their arch-rivals, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles got to savor an oh-so sweet victory on Monday, beating Bullitt East 59-46 in the opening round of the Girls’ Sixth Region Tournament.

    This was the fifth time in the past season seasons that the two Bullitt County programs had met in the regional tournament with Bullitt East winning all of those meetings including last season’s semi-final round win. 

  • BC, NB fans get a shock from...

     (Football fans should note that this realignment move starts with the 2019 season. The upcoming fall of 2018 season will be played under the alignment of the past three years with the three Bullitt County teams all in the same Class 5-A, District 3 positions.)


    SHEPHERDSVILLE – Just when everybody felt they had a handle on football realignment for the 2019-2022 seasons, the KHSAA Board of Control threw a couple of curve balls last week when they unveiled the first proposal of the future of the sport in Kentucky.

  • Cougars advance, Eagles fall in...

     OKOLONA -- One young coach left the Southern High School gym a happy man.

    Another young coach was left wondering what might have been.

    Jessie Curry’s Bullitt Central Cougars continued a very satisfying season with a 52-47 victory over the host Southern Trojans.

    The victory sent Bullitt Central into the 23rd District championship game against the Moore Mustangs. Both teams would advance to the Sixth Region tournament this week.
