  • Cross-country post-season starts...

     BARDSTOWN – In the final tune-up for all three programs before the Region 3 meet this Saturday, the area cross-country teams competed in the Mid-Kentucky Athletic Conference Meet at the Bluegrass Expo Center.

    The day belonged to Bullitt East as they won both the boys’ and the girls’ titles while in addition Lady Charger junior Sierra Poppell continued her strong season by winning the girls’ race by over a minute. Poppell has moved into the top-10 runners across the state in Class 3-A this season.

  • Final week of the regular season...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – With all the regular season district play out of the way, the three area football teams now know the path ahead of them in the Class 5-A play-offs.

    First, the teams get a chance to regroup and fix any late problems with one last regular season contest this week. What works out best is that all three teams will be at home for those games so they can celebrate Senior Night in style.

  • North advances, but BE and BC...

      HEBRON ESTATES – For the second time in three seasons, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles advanced to the semi-finals of the Sixth Region Volleyball Tournament, but the reward is a daunting one.

    After winning the 24th District title a week earlier, coach Cecilia Boston’s team was rewarded with a home match on Monday against Doss, a team they had defeated during the regular season. The Lady Dragons put up a fight, but North Bullitt won 25-20, 25-18, 25-19.

  • Mercy gets past East...again

     HIGHVIEW - Mercy Academy is where Bullitt East soccer coach Steve Gentry wants to program to be.

    However, that doesn’t come without a lot of work.

    For yet another season, the Mercy Jaguars ended the post-season for the Lady Chargers with a 3-0 victory in the Sixth Region title game on Saturday evening.

    “I thought we came out a little flat tonight,” said Gentry. “I find that hard to believe you come out flat in a regional final but I think you have to give Mercy a lot of credit for that.”

  • Mercy does what Mercy does in...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – There are dreams and then there is reality.

         The Bullitt East Lady Chargers may have dreamed of knocking off state volleyball power Mercy in the 24th District final on their home court, but then reality set in. Facing the top-ranked team in the country for much of this season, the Lady Chargers had little chance of winning, falling 25-8, 25-8, 25-10.

  • Lady Eagles get the best of...

    HIGHVIEW -- Winning their fourth straight District 23 volleyball crown was not a lofty goal for the North Bullitt Lady Eagles.

  • NB goes on the road and the road...

    MURRAY -- It's been a long season for Brett Newton and the North Bullitt Eagles.

  • Lowe's punt, safety helps...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON -- How many times in a high school football game does the key play come down to a punter?

  • Chargers battle for second; BC...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – A common phrase heard in the sports world is ‘win or go home’.

    For the Bullitt East Chargers when they play host to district rival Shelby County on Friday, it will be ‘win and stay home’. The winner of the final district match of the regular season will earn the number two spot in Class 5-A, District 4 and will play a home game in the first round of the play-offs.

  • The play-offs have arrived with...

      It was a longer than normal weekend for The Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League as the teams played the final weekend of the regular season on Saturday. Then, on Sunday, the eighth and ninth place teams in the three younger age divisions played their ‘play-in’ games to get each division down to an eight-team bracket for the rest of the post-season which will start on Saturday.

    Championship Saturday will be on Nov. 8.

    The program with the bye in the three younger divisions on Saturday was the Maryville Patriots.
