  • Eagles look for rise to top of...

        HEBRON ESTATES – North Bullitt boys’ soccer coach Eddie Fightmaster wants more.
        The second year Eagle head coach wants more players.
        Heading into Monday’s season-opener against DeSales, North Bullitt has just 20 players in the program. With one of those players being an eighth-grader, that leaves just 19 players for varsity contests.
        With a better than average season a year ago and stability at the top, the coach thought his numbers would be improved.

  • Top end is strong, but Eagles...

     HEBRON ESTATES – After going from 1-10 to 9-3 in the first year under head coach Adam Billings, it might have seemed that football would be king at North Bullitt.

    But, heading into his second season, Billings seems to be doing more rebuilding that he did when he arrived. The entire program has just 55 players and on a tough Friday night Billings doesn’t expect to use more than 20 to 22 players.

  • 2016-17 deer season looks...

     FRANKFORT – Many archery hunters in Kentucky will spend the last long weekend of summer getting an early jump on fall.

    Kentucky’s 2016-17 deer season kicks off the first Saturday in September with the start of the 136-day archery season. Anticipation has been building for months.

    “Everything right now points toward another good season,” said Gabe Jenkins, deer program coordinator for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources.

  • BE’s Krommenacker set to join...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The baseball pipeline between Mount Washington and Owensboro is running at full speed this summer as Bullitt East baseball standout Derrick Krommenacker recently signed to play for Brescia University starting in the fall.

    When all is said and done, four players from the Charger team that reached the Final Four of the Kentucky State Baseball Tournament, will sign with the Bearcats and head coach Andrew Dickson.

  • Hoffman takes over third team to...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – As if he didn’t butt heads with Mercy’s high-powered athletic program enough already as Bullitt East’s softball and bowling coach, now Ricky Hoffman is taking on the biggest challenge of all -- battling the Jaguars in volleyball.

  • Higgs set to lead North...

     HEBRON ESTATES – Five coaches in five seasons.

    Just think how good North Bullitt’s volleyball program could be with stability at the top.

  • Lady Eagles seek final push to...

     HEBRON ESTATES – Four years, four 23rd District Tournament titles.

    Four seasons, four trips to the semi-finals of the Sixth Region Tournament.

    Those are all great accomplishments, especially for a program that before the recent surge, had very little success in girls’ soccer. The recent past, including last season’s 15-6-2 record, has been good for the North Bullitt Lady Eagles, but they are looking for more in 2016.

  • Chargers’ O’Brien ready to...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON – Brescia University in Owensboro has suddenly built a pipeline to the Bullitt East baseball program and no one was happier about that than senior Troy O’Brien who recently signed to play for the Bearcats.
        When all is said and done from the past season, when the Chargers won the Sixth Region title and advanced to the Final Four of the State Tournament, four of the team’s nine seniors will be playing for Brescia starting this fall.

  • BE to rely on big junior class

         MOUNT WASHINGTON – The past few seasons has not been as successful as some other seasons for the Bullitt East Chargers, but fueled by a junior class with 14 members, veteran head coach Mike Brangers is looking to continue an uptick started late last season.

  • Truck, tractor pulling at...

      CLERMONT -- There’s nothing like a good truck pull to draw out a crowd.

    No matter what part of the state or region the event is held, big crowds are sure to follow.

    On Saturday, Aug. 13, the Battle of the Bluegrass pulling series will again make its stop in Bullitt County.

    Eight divisions will try to pull the biggest weight the farthest distance on the Bullitt County Fairgrounds track.
