  • Charger runners do well in early...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – While many of the local teams have already had a practice meet or run in cross-country relay meets, the real start of the high school running season started on Saturday with the Tiger Run at the site of the former River Road Golf Course with Bullitt East taking part.

    It was a good day for the top runners in both the boys’ and the girls’ program as junior Sierra Poppell finished eighth in a field of 181. On the boys’ side, junior Isaac Shelton finished 15th in a huge field of 237 runners.

  • North hurler Jacob Kelly commits...

     HEBRON ESTATES - As soon as he saw the campus, Jacob Kelly was hooked.

    After been on the radar of college baseball programs the past few years, the North Bullitt senior was ready to start narrowing the list of contenders.

    His list had dwindled and that included Murray State University, where his cousin, Clayton, will be a sophomore this year.

    But when the lefty hurler visited the Marshall University campus a couple of weeks ago, there was no need look any further.

    HEBRON ESTATES -- Sometimes it is good when the scoreboard isn't working.

  • Chargers start slow, then roll...

    TAYLORSVILLE – Scoring in the final minute of the first half and then matching that with another touchdown less than two minutes into the second half, the Bullitt East Chargers buried some bad memories on Friday as they rolled past Spencer County 28-7.

  • BC scores 31 in second quarter...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – Exploding for 31 points in the second quarter, the Bullitt Central Cougars on Friday took care of business and defeated a young and inexperienced Valley squad 45-8.

         It really was a no-win situation for the Cougars as they were expected to roll over a Vikings’ squad that had already lost two lopsided games this season. Bullitt Central struggled a little early, but then rose to the occasion and did what was expected of them, winning a game that had a running clock for all of the second half.

  • Youth football is back in action...

     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.

  • NB’s schedule change means full...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – North Bullitt’s football schedule change means that there is a full slate of games on Friday for Bullitt County fans.

    In fact, North Bullitt will have the only home game this Friday as they will play host to North Oldham. Bullitt Central makes the short trip to Dixie Highway to take on Valley while Bullitt East will take a visit across Hwy-44 to take on Spencer County in what is a growing rivalry on the gridiron.

  • North leads, falters, then...

    HEBRON ESTATES -- Veteran coach Brett Newton said that the most improvement a team makes is between the first and second games of the season.

  • Defense stifles Wildcats in...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON – It took a little time for Bullitt East to get rolling on Friday against visiting Waggener on offense, but the defense never wavered, allowing the Chargers to secure a 42-0 win.

         This wasn’t expected to be a tough outing for the Chargers and for the most part they took care of business. A handful of turnovers in the first half kept the Wildcats within 14-0 at halftime, but the red and gold scored the first time they had the ball in the second half and then kept up the strong play for the quick win.
