  • League fights through weather...

     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.

  • BE has too much for rivals in...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – It was all Bullitt East on Saturday as the Chargers couldn’t even be slowed by lightning as they rolled to title in the renewal of the Bullitt Cup.

    After a short hiatus, the Bullitt Cup returned on Saturday with all three of the Bullitt County high school boys’ teams taking part on the refurbished field at Bullitt East. The Chargers, with a senior-dominated squad, had no problems, rolling to an 9-1 win over North Bullitt in the first game and then cruising past Bullitt Central 8-0 in the second contest.

  • Cougars have just enough to beat...

     FAIRDALE – After misfiring on a couple of promising drives in the first half, the Bullitt Central Cougars marched 70 yards in seven plays at the end of the third quarter for a touchdown and then turned it over to the defense on Saturday to beat Holy Cross 7-0 in the inaugural King of the Bluegrass Bowl at Fairdale High School.

    This was also the first meeting ever between Bullitt Central and Holy Cross in football even though the two schools often play each other in various other sports.

  • BC girls ready to improve with...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Needless to say, the 2016 girls’ soccer season did not end the way that Bullitt Central head coach Stephanie Porter wanted.

    Battling injuries and low numbers most of the season, the team had to withdraw from the 23rd District Tournament when several more players would not have been able to play because they were going to be out of town as Fall Break fell on that week.

  • Chargers struggle mightily in...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Trailing 13-0 less than five minutes into the game, the Bullitt East Chargers never put up a fight on Friday, dropping a 53-0 decision at home to Class 6-A rival Butler.

    The loss was not as upsetting to second year Charger head coach Mark Sander as it was the fact that his team never responded after Butler struck for the two early touchdowns.

    After it was 33-0 at halftime, the Bears added a touchdown five minutes into the third quarter and there was a running clock for the rest of the game.

  • Youthful North comes up short on...

     GEORGETOWN — Adam Billings told his team exactly what to expect when they hit the road to take on one of the top teams in the state of Kentucky.

    And the Scott County Cardinals definitely lived up to Billings’ expectations.

    The Class 6-A title contender scored on the opening kicking and never looked back in defeating North Bullitt by a 56-19 count.

    But, the Eagles did win the second half 19-7.

  • Voice of Baseball: Former...

     MEMPHIS, Tenn. - The golden tones of Major League Baseball have played an intregal role in the sport’s rich history.

    Most fans know the names that lend their voice to the unique branch of Americana: Vin Scully, Marty Brenneman, Mel Allen… and Curt Hart.

    Maybe you haven’t heard of Curt Hart, or at least not in a baseball sense, but the former Bullitt County resident currently plays an integral part in maintaining baseball’s rich history.

  • Football kicks-off this weekend

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Friday Night Lights will kick off with a full slate of three games this weekend for the area high school teams.

    The only team playing at home is Bullitt East and they will play host to Butler on Friday at 7:30 p.m. The Bears posted a 4-7 record a year ago, losing to Lexington Lafayette in the first-round of the Class 6-A play-offs. Butler replaces Eastern, the team that Bullitt East opened with each of the two previous seasons.

  • Youth football set to start 46th...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Sometimes change is good, but there are also times where staying the course is the best option.

    That is the way that long-time Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League president Joe Downs sees the 2017 campaign. Major changes have been put on the back burner while small tweaks in what was working have moved forward.

    This is Downs’ 13th year at the helm of the county-wide league that has nine individual programs that conduct not only football games, but also oversee cheerleading and dance teams.

  • Central’s numbers still on the...

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – Instead of going for the quick fix when he took over the program a little over a year ago, Bullitt Central boys’ soccer coach Aaron Shaw has been working from the ground up to build a strong foundation.

    The progress is obvious as the Cougars have 38 players this season, perhaps the largest number in the program’s history. Shaw is pretty much planning on having completely separate varsity and junior-varsity squads this fall.
