  • BC, BE fall in regional semi-...

        BUCKNER - There was good news and bad news last week for Bullitt Central and Bullitt East as they competed in the 8th Region Volleyball Tournament at Oldham County High School.

        First off, the good news included the fact that for the first time since 2007, the top two teams from the 29th District advanced to the semi-finals of the eight-team event. Bullitt Central, the district champions, opened regional play with a straight game win over Williamstown. Bullitt East recorded a quick win over Walton-Verona in the first round.

  • Eagles rally late for monumental...

        HEBRON ESTATES - The North Bullitt boys' soccer team dreamed big on Thursday and the results were remarkable as the green and gold stunned arch-rival Bullitt East 3-2.

        It was the first win for North Bullitt over the Chargers in at least 15 years or since the sport was in its infancy in the county.

  • Bluegrass Speedway honors 2010...

        BARDSTOWN - Bluegrass Speedway track promoters David and Anita Ferrell officially finished the 2010 racing season at Bluegrass Speedway on Sunday afternoon October 31 as the track held its annual championship celebration that honored the top ten points racers in each division, while also celebrating the division’s four track champions for the 2010 racing season.

  • Courageous effort falls short...

        BARDSTOWN - Doug Preston knew his team would show up to battle on Friday night against the Nelson County Cardinals.

        The team, despite several key injuries and a lack of varsity experience, had fought every night of the season.

        On Friday, Bullitt East would end its season on positive note.

        Despite the 41-28 setback to the host Cardinals, Preston was very proud of his players.

  • Pride on the line as Chargers...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - Pride will be on the line Friday night when the Bullitt East Chargers close out the 2010 season with a trip to Bardstown to take on Nelson County in the annual battle for the Bourbon Barrel.

        The Chargers will try to regroup for a final time this season after being knocked out of the Class 4-A play-offs last Friday in a 30-14 setback to LaRue County. It will mark the first time in over a decade that Bullitt East will not make the post-season.

  • THE GAME: Big lines set to...

        HEBRON ESTATES - The 2010 football regular season will end with a bang on Friday as Bullitt Central travels to North Bullitt for the 35th renewal of The Game, the longest running rivalry in local football.

        For the first time in a number of years, the showdown appears to have two equal teams with no clear-cut favorite. Both teams enter play on Friday with 6-3 records and both have already claimed a number two seed for the upcoming play-offs with each team playing a home opener when the post-season starts on Nov. 5.

  • Bulldogs take a bite out of BC...

        ELIZABETHTOWN - The John Hardin Bulldogs displayed why they might have a shot to improve on last year’s state runner-up position in the state Class 5-A championship.

        With senior Landon Savoy slashing and dashing his way to five touchdowns, the host Bulldogs easily dispatched of the Bullitt Central Cougars 52-7 to win the district title for a second straight season.

  • LaRue knocks East out of play-...

        HODGENVILLE - The Bullitt East Chargers suffered a frustrating 30-14 loss to Class 4-A District rival LaRue County on Friday.

        The setback eliminated Bullitt East from the play-offs for the first time in over a decade. The Chargers finished in a fourth place tie with LaRue County in the district race, but the Hawks earned the final play-off berth based on the win over Bullitt East on Friday.

        The Chargers are now 4-5 overall and closed out 2-3 in the district race.

  • Eagles shut out the lights on...

        HEBRON ESTATES - Trailing 16-14 after Marion County returned a fumble 60 yards for a touchdown midway through the third quarter, the North Bullitt Eagles needed to get back to the basics if they wanted to be playing at home in the first round of the Class 4-A play-offs in two weeks.

        Mission accomplished.

        The green and gold put together a 10-play, 52-yard drive that shifted the momentum squarely back on the side of the home team. The defense then did the rest as the Eagles garnered a 28-16 victory on Thursday night.

  • KHSAA assigns locals to a 4-team...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - One of the late moves allowed by the KHSAA in the football alignment process for the 2011-2014 season affected the three local programs, but it was in a positive way when the Board of Control voted on the final proposal last week.

        Instead of competing in the five-team district that had been on the planning board for the past month, Bullitt Central, North Bullitt and Bullitt East were assigned to Region 2, District 4 of Class 5-A along with Shelby County High School.
