     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Bullitt East basketball standout Lindsey Duvall, who recently committed to the University of Kentucky, will miss her junior season this winter after having a tumor removed from just below her left knee.

    Duvall had surgery on Thursday in Louisville and went home that day. The bone tumor was diagnosed as chondroblastoma, a very rare form of cancer.

  • Fern Creek pulls away late to...

     FERN CREEK – North Bullitt’s turnaround, season-in-the-sun 2015 campaign came to an end on Friday as Fern Creek scored three times in the second half to beat the Eagles 28-7 in the second-round of the Class 5-A State Football Playoffs.

    The loss ended North Bullitt’s season at 9-3, an incredible reversal from the 1-10 mark the program posted in 2014.

    Against a very athletic Fern Creek team on Friday, the green and gold had opportunities early to seize momentum but an uneven offensive performance ultimately undid the Eagles.

  • NB’s Logan Wyatt signs with U of...

      HEBRON ESTATES – It was a dream come true for North Bullitt senior Logan Wyatt on Wednesday as he signed his national letter of intent to play baseball at the University of Louisville.

    A long-time Cardinal fan, the decision came easy back last summer when Louisville head coach Dan McDonnell presented the big third baseman with a scholarship proposal. Wyatt pretty much accepted on the spot.

  • East’s Poppell finishes 12th in...

      LEXINGTON – It wasn’t quite the final placing that she had envisioned, but Bullitt East senior Sierra Poppell was still smiling after finishing 12th on Saturday at the Kentucky State Cross-Country Championships at the Kentucky Horse Park.

    This was the fourth straight run at the state championships for Poppell and she had her best time ever over the 5K course. However, Poppell’s time of 19:06.39 was only good for 12th. As a sophomore she had finished 11th and last year was in sixth place at the finish.

  • Charger Gold turns tables on Red...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- It was a neighborhood battle on Saturday.

    It was a game of teams with players who had been teammates in the past.

    And it was a game in which many will become teammates once again at Bullitt East.

    On this particular evening, the top seeded East Gold would defeat the East Red for the right to be called champions of the A Division in the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League.

    The 28-14 victory capped off an undefeated season for coach John Jutz’ team.

  • Vikings complete sweep en route...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Entering the playoffs as the fourth seed, the Cedar Grove Vikings had a little work to do.

    And work they did do as the Vikings advanced to the championship game of the Little Bullitts Division of the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League.

    The last hurdle would be the second-seeded Mount Washington Colts.

    At the end of the day, it would be mission accomplished for coach Pat Bristoe and his Vikings.

    Cedar Grove took home the championship trophy with a 20-12 victory.

  • Big plays, tough defense carries...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Good defense wins championships.

    The Pleasant Grove Dolphins proved that on Saturday and they took home the championship for the Pee Wee division of the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League.

    Two big plays and a suffocating defense led the Dolphins to the 12-0 victory over the Maryville Patriots.

    Quarterback Carson Waddle took the ball on the opening Dolphin drive and would score on its third play.

    He ran 48 yards for the touchdown with 4:01 left in the opening period.

  • Old Mill has too much firepower...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- The Lebanon Junction Jaguars had done something that’s difficult to do -- be a No. 5 seed who earns its way to the championship game.

    But that happened as the Jaguars would face the Old Mill Bengals in the championship game of the B division for the Greater Bullitt Youth Football League on Saturday.

    The dream season ended as the Bengals had too much offense and defense as Old Mill recorded a 39-0 victory.

    Coach Brandon Egan’s team scored on its opening possession and never looked back.

  • Lady Chargers host Hooparama...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Fans can get an early look at some of the top players in the state this weekend as Bullitt East hosts its annual pre-season Hooparama.

    The event has 12 teams participating. The junior-varsity teams from each school will play for an hour in the new ‘small’ gym at the school while the varsity teams will scrimmage for two hours in the main gym.

    (The KHSAA allows schools two scrimmages before the season starts on Nov. 29 by each school with the workouts not to exceed three hours.)
