  • BC's Byler and Calvert sign...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE-- Eastern Kentucky University cheerleading director Beth Bruner recently had a good day in Bullitt County as she picked up a pair of Bullitt Central seniors to join her program starting in August.
        During a ceremony in the new Bullitt Central Media Center, both Sean Byler and Jacob Calvert signed to cheer for the Colonels.

  • UK players provide insight into...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON--Old Mill Elementary had some special visitors at the end of the school year—former UK players: Jon Hood, Tod Lanter, Sam Malone and Jeff Sheppard.

    The group told the kids it’s important to work hard on and off the court, to push through tough times and to find a way to help someone else.

    Lanter spoke about he was a “little guy” so he had to work twice as hard to be good in basketball, but he also worked hard in the classroom so he could have a career after basketball.

  • Porter signs with Morehead

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Sometimes, even in the sports world, small is good…and in high demand.

    That was certainly the case for Bullitt Central senior cheerleader Brianna Porter when it came to continuing doing what she loves to do at the next level. That first step was recently completed when Porter signed to join the cheerleading program at Morehead State University.

  • BC’s McDonald to play volleyball...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Never give up.

    That was the way Bullitt Central senior Darian McDonald handled things when it came to finding the right fit for her college volleyball career.

    As it turned out, McDonald had friends in the right places.

  • Are the Lady Chargers ready to...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON -- Talk about your broken records.

    (For those readers under the age of 30, that is a reference to a long lost method of sound reproduction. When a vinyl record would become broken, then the needle that rode across it to create the sound would skip, jumping back, and playing the same part of the recording over and over.)

  • Summer Soccer Camp Fun

     The Women’s World Cup isn’t the only soccer being played this summer.

    Both Bullitt Central and Bullitt East recently hosted soccer camps for young players and there was a strong turnout at both events.

    The young players got to work on some fundamentals in learning the game and played some games as well as also just getting to have some fun picking up the basics of the game. 

  • Local contingent shines at...

    The annual Kentucky High School Coaches Association East/West Junior All Star Basketball Games had a strong Bullitt County flavor on Saturday as four seniors-to-be took part in the two games at Bellarmine Univerity's Knight Hall.

    In the opening girls' game, North Bullitt's Katie Downey played for the West team. The Lady Eagles' leading scorer last seasons scored one point as her team fell 71-69.

  • Help needed with summer diamond...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE-- It's here again.
        It is time for the summer baseball and softball All-Star season.
        Normally, my internal clock for covering such things tells me that around the July 4th holiday that All-Star action will begin. Often times, it is the first weekend after the holiday.
        This year, word is trickling in that some leagues and age groups are getting a jump on that, starting play as early as this week.

  • Seven BE cheerleaders headed to...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON--Seven Bullitt East High School students will be furthering their cheerleading careers in college.

    Kristen Dadisman and Christina Daugherty will be heading to the University of Kentucky.

    Dadisman said she started cheering in fifth grade at Eastside Middle School and decided to continue in high school.

    “I liked being thrown around,” she said.

    The Mount Washington resident said she selected UK because it has a good cheerleading program as well as nursing, which she plans to major in.

  • East’s Colvin ready to get...

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – Sometimes a college football recruiters’ best friend is a former teammate.

    That is exactly the case when it came to Campbellsville University getting the signature of Bullitt East running back Austin Colvin earlier this spring. Colvin got a positive report from former Bullitt East tight end Cruise Coulter who just finished his first season in the Tigers’ program (albeit a short season as Coulter spent much of the fall injured).
