  • Adam Billings takes over NB...

    HEBRON ESTATES-- Ten days ago, Adam Billings was not even aware that the head football coaching position was open at North Bullitt.
        Less than a week later, after a whirlwind romance, Billings was hired last Wednesday as the sixth head coach to lead the Eagle program over the last 39 years.
        Billings, who grew up in Bullitt County and played in the Cedar Grove Vikings' organization, replaces Brett Newton who stepped down last month after coaching the Eagles for the past 18 seasons.

    April 2, 2015


    TO: Bullitt County HS Football Fans


    Today, I literally turn over the keys to North Bullitt football to my successor, Adam Billings. I wish him complete and early success as he will be coaching “my” boys for the next few years. I thank everyone associated with North Bullitt football for their support. Coach Vincent, you just became the “old man” in the county!


  • BE's Mattingly to wrestle...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON-- After falling in love with the sport as an eighth-grader, now Bullitt East senior Dylan Mattingly can continue competing in wrestling for the next four years after signing with St. Catharine College recently.
        The overall situation worked out just fine for Mattingly. St. Catharine just completed its first season of wrestling after becoming only the third school in the state to offer the sport, joining Campbellsville and Lindsey Wilson.

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Tied at 2-2 heading into the top of the seventh inning on a road trip to Breckinridge County, the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars exploded for nine runs in the top of the final frame to win 11-2 for the team’s first win of the season.

  • BE and BC clash at Nelson County...

     BARDSTOWN – Bullitt Central entered the area high school track wars last week as they opened their season at the aptly named Nelson County Icebreaker Meet.

    Bullitt East, which had already competed in two meets prior to this one, was also in the field and had a strong outing on the girls’ side.

    Girls’ Action

    Bullitt East picked up seven wins in the 17 events and showed that they will be one of the top teams in the area again this season.

  • Wind not blowing at NB leads to...

     HEBRON ESTATES -- Maybe for the first time in recent memory the wind was not blowing into the face of the batters at North Bullitt High.

    With no wind, skipper Brian Wise’s team turned into the long-ball Eagles last week.

    Six balls left the yard for North Bullitt. Unfortunately, one also left off the bat of a visiting player.

    Still, entering the third week of play, Wise has to be pleased with his team’s 6-3 record.

  • Chargers have the answers in 9-0...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Holding Bullitt Central to just three hits and snuffing out an early scoring opportunity, the Bullitt East Chargers rolled to a 9-0 victory over their county rivals in cold and windy conditions.

    The clash on Tuesday at Bullitt Central is the only regular season meeting between the two programs scheduled for this season.

  • KHSAA sanctions cornhole...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Earlier this week, the Kentucky High School Athletic Association voted to sanction cornhole as a competitive sport starting with the 2015-2016 school year.

    Kentucky now becomes the first state to join the cornhole bandwagon and other southern states are soon expected to join the cornhole phenomenon.

    Adding cornhole is seen as a move to put the ugly ‘yard darts’ debacle in the rearview mirror for the KHSAA.
