  • Chargers look for another big...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON – If you are the type fan that bases your hopes for the upcoming season on the returning ‘skill’ position players, then you will love the Bullitt East Chargers heading into the 2014 season.

         If, on the other hand, you look at returning linemen as the basis for the upcoming campaign, then you are probably losing some sleep worrying about the Chargers as they prepare to start play this Friday against Boyle County in the Death Valley Bowl at Lincoln County High School.

  • Boston returns to coach NB V-ball

     HEBRON ESTATES – You can go home again.

         That is certainly the case for new North Bullitt volleyball coach Cecilia Boston as she takes over the Lady Eagle program that she last played for in 2008.

         Boston is the third coach in the program in as many seasons.

         “It’s been a lot more than I expected,” Boston said before a practice last week. “The girls are better than I thought. I know they have had a lot of coaching turnover.”

  • Rebuilding the word for NB soccer

    HEBRON ESTATES – If you look up the word ‘rebuilding’ in some dictionary in the future, you might just see a picture of Aaron Shaw there.

         The new North Bullitt boys’ soccer coach is facing a ‘rebuilding’ job or enormous proportions after the Eagles graduated 14 seniors from last year’s team. Shaw will start this season with only one senior and most of the rest of the players have no varsity experience at all.

  • Dezerns return to international...

     HILLVIEW - The father-son bowling team from Bullitt County didn't bring home the international trophy, but they did receive great memories and a little bit of college funding.

    Zoneton Middle School seventh grader Eric S. Dezern and his father, Eric V. "Bam Bam" Dezern, paced 28th out of 38 teams in the International Family Tournament presented by the Bowling Proprietors' Association of America.

    The pair earned their way into the international championship by winning the state qualifier at Fern Valley Strike and Spare in Louisville.

  • BC volleyball looking for better...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – Having talent in a volleyball program is one thing.

         Having players who believe they are talented is even more important.

         First-year Bullitt Central head coach Karen Vogt feels that a big boost of self-confidence will go further than anything she does with her team this fall as she takes over a program that has struggled to maintain consistency.

  • Friday Night Lights

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The high school football season will get off the ground with a bang on Friday as both North Bullitt and Bullitt East head into battle against tough foes.

         North Bullitt will be at home on Friday against Franklin County, a team that has lost just one regular season game over the last three seasons. The Flyer went 11-2 last season including a season-opening 52-14 win over the Eagles in Frankfort.

  • New coach, new attitude for NB...

    HEBRON ESTATES – After losing in the Sixth Region semi-finals each of the past two seasons, after winning 23rd District titles, the North Bullitt Lady Eagle soccer program is once again looking to move to the top of the area programs.

         To do that, the green and gold went out and found a new coach, Amber Mink, who joins the program after coaching at Butler the past three seasons.

  • Eagles to overcome a numbers...

    HEBRON ESTATES – If Class 5-A football teams in Kentucky could get by with a core group of a dozen players, the North Bullitt Eagles would be ready for a big season.

         Unfortunately, big school football in the area normally requires at least twice as many players ready to step into important roles for success. It helps if those key players are seniors and juniors.

  • Perfect weather conditions...

     FRANKFORT, Ky. – The diminishing daylight hours, foggy mornings and slightly different angle of the daytime sun informs hunters the best time of year is upon us.

    Dove season opens on Labor Day, Mon., Sept. 1 statewide. This season, hunters have an additional 20 days to pursue doves, with most of those days scheduled for the last two segments of the season. The opening segment of dove season closes Oct. 26. Dove season opens again Nov. 27 and closes Dec. 7. The third segment opens Dec. 20 and closes Jan. 11, 2015.

  • 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.

    After seven years as the head coach, Andy Oder stepped down to spend more time working with youth golf in the area as well as his job as Executive 

    Director of the Kentucky Golf Coaches’ Association.
