  • Knights sign Scott who will miss...

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – Bullitt East senior Kathleen Scott was all smiles on Wednesday during a ceremony in the school’s Media Center in which she signed to play basketball for the Bellarmine University Lady Knights.

    It had been late in her junior season that Scott had committed to coach Chancellor Dugan’s program.

    In fact, all Bellarmine had to do was offer and Scott was on-board.

    “When they asked, I knew,” the senior said following the signing ceremony. “I thought it was the best fit for me.”

  • State a learning experience for...

      LEXINGTON – The minds were willing but the legs were a little weak on Saturday for most of the Bullitt County runners as they participated in the Class 3-A Kentucky State Cross-Country Championships at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington.

  • Local contingent runs in KTCCCA...

     LEXINGTON – In the biggest cross-country meet of the year in Kentucky, a number of young Bullitt County runners took part in the Kentucky Track and Cross-Country Coaches Association Meet of Champions on Oct. 21 at Masterson Station Park in Lexington.

    Some of the races had in excess of 400 runners. This is not a Kentucky High School Athletic Association event, but it does serve as what is considered the middle school state championships.

  • Championship teams are now...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Once again this season The Pioneer News will run the results from the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League in each Wednesday edition during the season.

    The statistics used each week are provided to the newspaper by the league and the individual teams. Questions about yardage, scoring and tackles should be directed to the league and those teams.

  • Big pass plays lift Cougars past...

     BARDSTOWN – Scoring three times in the third quarter, the Bullitt Central Cougars rallied from a 14-0 halftime hole on Friday and defeated Dixie Heights 18-14 in the first round of the Class 5-A, Region 2 football play-offs.

    The win marks the third time in the last four seasons that Bullitt Central has won its opening round contest in the post-season.

  • Top-ranked Cov. Catholic too...

     COVINGTON -- On a cold, breezy November night, the Bullitt East Chargers learned a valuable lesson.

    No matter the effort, it is hard when a team has been riddled with injuries to go onto an opponent’s field and come out the victor.

    And, when that opponent is the top ranked team in at least one poll, that task borders on the impossible.

    Covington Catholic displayed why many think the Colonels is the best team in Kentucky with a 56-14 victory.

    This came in the first round of the Class 5A post-season tournament.

  • Eastside sweeps both girls’...

      ZONETON – The Eastside Lady Eagles made it look easy – twice – in winning both the ‘A’ (eighth-grade) and ‘B’ (sixth and seventh-grade) titles in the Girls’ Bullitt County Middle School Tournament held last week at Zoneton Middle School.

    In both championship games Eastside squared off with Bernheim and by the middle of the second half of both title games the margin had grown to margins big enough (25 points) to have the games finish with a running clock.

  • Central has memorable day at...

     LOUISVILLE – For the first time in school history, Bullitt Central qualified both its boys’ and girls’ teams for the Kentucky State Cross-Country Championships this Saturday at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington.
