  • Chargers have no answers for...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - Hit in the mouth on the opening play of the game, the Bullitt East Chargers never got up off the mat on Friday, falling to the Holy Cross Cougars 63-12 in a beat down eerily similar to the 63-15 loss at Shelby County a year ago.

    Holy Cross, one of the top teams in Class A, jumped on top 21-0 before Bullitt East could manage a first down and then cruised to their second straight win to open the season.

    The loss dropped the Chargers to 1-1 heading into another meeting with a west end Catholic school when Bullitt East faces DeSales this Friday.

  • Quick starts pushes NB past BC 5...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - After school on Monday, the North Bullitt Lady Eagle soccer team stayed together for the three hours before they were to face arch-rival Bullitt Central.

        “We kept them together after school and did some team building exercises to get them pumped up and excited,” first-year assistant coach Ryan Bringhurst explained.

        It worked. The Lady Eagles scored three times in the first 15 minutes of the match and went on to beat the Lady Cougars 5-0.

  • Late defensive stand lifts BC to...

        GLASGOW - The Bullitt Central Cougars passed their first test of the football season on Friday night.

        But that doesn’t mean that there is no room for improvement for its home opener Friday against Southern.

        Going on the road, Bullitt Central got on top early and then held off a late rally from the host Barren County Trojans for a 17-13 victory.

  • Southern poses speedy threat to...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - His team is 1-0 and coming off back-to-back 8-3 seasons, but Bullitt Central head coach Danny Leasor has already used the ‘C’ word when it comes to this week’s game at home against Southern.

        The ‘C’ stands for crucial. It could also stand for confidence. The cougars need both heading into their showdown battle next week with Bullitt East.

  • Meri Brian gets the call to jump...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - After medaling the past two seasons at the Kentucky Track and Field Championships, North Bullitt’s Meri Brian is ready to make the jump to Lindsey Wilson - literally.

    The high flying senior decided in the middle of the summer to take her long jump and triple jump skills to coach Edwin Hagans’ track program

  • Four-time state champ Stevens...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - A friendly suggestion three years ago has continued to pay huge dividends for Bullitt East senior Jackie Stevens.

        Already a four-time state champion in track and field, Stevens earlier this summer cast her lot to continue her throwing career at Western Kentucky University.

        That is quite an accomplishment for Stevens who three years ago had never competed in track and field. She was a basketball player and part of a strong class in that sport at Bullitt East.

  • Fox takes over Lady Eagle...

        HEBRON ESTATES - In recent seasons, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles have fielded relatively strong soccer teams.

        What the green and gold haven’t been able to do is find consistency in the coaching ranks. Melissa Fox is the new head coach, becoming the fourth different person to handle those duties over the past five years. The one positive is that Fox was the assistant coach last season so she has worked with many of the players on the team this fall.

  • Big Bang Theory lifts Chargers...

        RADCLIFF - The Bullitt East Charges opened and closed the opening game of the 2010 season with a bang on Saturday as the red and gold slipped past Bardstown 27-14 in the second game of the Joe Jaggers Classic at North Hardin High School.

        It was the second straight season that Bullitt East has opened with a win in this event. A year ago, the Chargers rolled past Lexington Paul Dunbar 37-7 en route to a 4-7 season.

  • Brangers feels that BE can still...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - You would have to excuse veteran Bullitt East boys’ soccer coach Mike Brangers if he put nametags on his players for the start of practice this summer.

        It will be hard for fans to recognize the Chargers at the start of this season after heavy graduation losses changed the profile of the program. Gone are a core group of players that helped the program to a pair of district runner-up finishes over the past four years as well as the programs’ first top-25 ranking a year ago.

  • Mayes back in coaching with...

        HEBRON ESTATES - It is a new era for the North Bullitt boys’ soccer program with new head coach Scott Mayes taking over a program that has had very little success over the past decade.

        This is not the first head coaching job for Mayes, but it is about a 360-degree change from his previous job coaching the Lady Eagle softball team. Mayes stepped down from that job two years ago to concentrate on finishing his educational requirements.

        Now, the coach is back with the sport that he played as a teenager.
