  • Youth football swings into...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Another season of play in the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League will kick off on Saturday as the league’s nine programs get ready to battle it out over the next 13 weeks to crown champions in all four age divisions.

    The independent football league is the second-largest sports program in Bullitt County, trailing only youth basketball in terms of participation.

  • Charger soccer ready to soar in...

          MOUNT WASHINGTON - No soccer team is happier with realignment than the Bullitt East Chargers and veteran head coach Mike Brangers.

         Over the past 25 years, the Chargers have never won a district soccer title, this despite the fact that they have occasionally been ranked among the top 25 teams in the state and have consistently posted winning records. Twice recently the red and gold did reach a district soccer final, losing to Bethlehem both times, and then lost in the first game of the regional tournament.

  • Lady Eagle soccer has some holes...

          HEBRON ESTATES - The North Bullitt Lady Eagle soccer program didn't suffer graduation losses any worse than most years in terms of numbers.

         However, coach Ryan Bringhurst's second team has one gaping hole to fill entering the 2012 season next week. Gone is senior Halee Heltsley who scored 37 goals last season and had 100 goals in her North Bullitt career. Heltsley is now playing soccer at Mississippi State University.

  • East girls' golf rebuilding...

          MOUNT WASHINGTON - You can't blame Bullitt East girls' golf coach Andy Oder if he thinks the 2012 season is déjà vu.

         The veteran coach, entering his sixth season at the helm, is pretty much starting from scratch with this year's team. The Lady Chargers have no seniors, and only one junior, this fall and none of the players has been in the program for more than two seasons. Over the last two seasons, the program has lost eight seniors.

  • MW squad finishes third in 60-...

          KINGS ISLAND - Mission Accomplished!

         It wasn't a national title, but the Bullitt East 7th-grade Girls' Basketball Team posted a 7-1 record and brought home the third place trophy two weeks ago in the AAU National 7th-Grade Division II Tournament in Kings Mill, Ohio.

         It was just two years ago that the same core group of girls finished ninth in the 5th-grade tournament in Florida.

  • Lindsey Wilson lands the...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Just blame it on the paperwork. That must have been it as Bullitt Central senior point guard Caleb Craddock was seldom slow to do anything.

  • Blue Lick 15s fall one game...

     HENDERSONVILLE - It was a ride not accomplished by a team from the Blue Lick Optimist League in its history.

  • Remarkable ride lands Blue Lick...

     CONNERSVILLE, IND. - When the Ohio Valley Regional tournament for 14-year-old All-Stars started, Troy Hayes didn’t think too many people knew anything about his Blue Lick squad.

  • State Semi-Finalists

    The Mount Washington Under-10 Softball All-Stars recently reached the semi-finals of the Cal Ripken Kentucky State Tournament at Fern Creek.

    The team lost two games in early round play, then came back in the bracket play and reversed the tables on Fern Creek White.

    The MW team had only nine players.

    Team members included Shelby Knieriem, Andrea Watts, Lila Dangerfield, Kaylie Davis, Madison Back, Bella Goodlett, Morgan Harbolt, Danielle Love and Jadin Disney.

  • Firecracker co-champs

      The Mount Washington 6U All-Stars were recently crowned co-champions of the Fern Creek Cal Ripkin Firecracker tournament.

    The local stars stumbled out of the blocks going 1-1-1 in pool play.

    However, they beat Fern Creek Black and Germantown in the tournament.

    They were leading Fern Creek Orange 6-0 in the championship game before Mother Nature stopped play.
