  • BE continues to narrow gap, but...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – There is no doubt that Bullitt East soccer is narrowing the gap on Mercy, but the Lady Chargers still couldn’t get a win on Monday, giving up a pair of second half goals to lose to the Jaguars 2-1 in the first of what could be three meetings between the district and regional rivals.

  • Lady Chargers stay hot; beat BC...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Five days after sweeping past North Bullitt, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers did it again last Tuesday as they beat Bullitt Central without dropping a game.

    That was just the tip of the iceberg for coach Ed Fisher’s team last week as it went on to beat district rival Fern Creek on Thursday before heading to New Castle over the weekend and capturing the Henry County Varsity Tournament with four straight wins. In the tournament, the red and gold lost just one game.

  • Youth football teams pass midway...

     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.

  • Eagles’ big week ends 1-0-1

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The first part of last week was going to be big for the North Bullitt boys’ soccer team and that stretch the team handled well, getting past Bullitt Central 3-1 and then drawing to a 2-2 tie with Bullitt East.

    Unfortunately, after those two emotional games, the team came out flat on Saturday at the Meade County Invitational, dropping a pair of lopsided contests.

    Still, the biggest win came on Tuesday when the green and gold rolled into Shepherdsville and got the win over the Cougars in a spirited and competitive contest.

  • Poppell continues early Fall...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Bullitt East senior Sierra Poppell continued her strong start to the 2015 Cross-Country season with her third big run in as many races on Saturday at the Rumble Trough the Jungle Run at the Creasey Mahan Nature Preserve in Goshen.

    Poppell finished fourth out of 140 runners in the main run, finishing in 19:42.02. The winner was Kaitlyn Lacy of regional rival Male in a time of 18:28.60.

  • Lady Chargers show net strength...

     HEBRON ESTATES – The Bullitt East Lady Chargers have a strong volleyball team this fall.

    Just ask the North Bullitt Lady Eagles.

    On Tuesday, the red and gold invaded the Eagles’ nest and took no prisoners, beating a North Bullitt squad that had been having a pretty good season by a 25-10, 25-16, 25-15 score.

  • THE WAR: District may trump...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – It will be a clash of philosophies on Friday when Bullitt Central heads across Highway-44 to battle Bullitt East in the 27th renewal of The War.

    On one had, there is a 4-2 Bullitt Central team that will put the ball in the air most of the time, a move that lengthens games. Bullitt East on the other hand wants to keep it on the ground and shorten the game.

    Sure, Bullitt Central head coach Tye Lawson would like to run the ball more, and better, but his heart, and best player Cameron Dukes, are better suited for the air game.

  • Road racing returns to Salem...

     SALEM, Ind. – Road racing returns to Salem Speedway Fueled by the Hoosier Lottery on Sunday afternoon, Oct. 4th, as the second annual Redneck Enduro 100 on the Roval takes center stage on the tricky half-mile layout.

    The 100-lap event for the Portland Recycling Front Wheel Drive Stocks utilizes both the infield short-track and a portion of the half-mile high banks.  Drivers navigate the road course, which includes both left and right-hand turns, from the high banked track to the short-track and back.

  • Chargers end draught with win...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON -- Did it rain on Friday night?

    If you ask the Bullitt East football players and staff members, they may not know.

    What they did know is that after a tough pre-district stretch, Bullitt East got the “real” season started with a fantastic 35-6 victory over Nelson County.

    In a constant rain, the Charger defense completely snuffed out the Cardinal offense.

    The visitors had only 71 yards in total offense, including a minus three on 21 rushing attempts.

  • Classic!! Duel in the Rain goes...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Trailing for the first time all night with just 4:42 remaining in the 40th renewal of The Game, the North Bullitt Eagles didn’t panic and they didn’t try to get fancy.
