  • BE-BC finally play, but it is...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - The fourth time was the charm on Monday as Bullitt East and Bullitt Central finally met in a boys’ soccer match at the beginning of the final week of the regular season.

        It has been a tough season for Bullitt Central and three previous times they had to postpone matches against their county rivals for numerous reasons. Finally, Bullitt East head coach Mike Brangers sent Bullitt Central a list of available dates for his program and told them to ‘pick one.’

  • Thursday Night - Marion visits...

        HEBRON ESTATES - The second of three straight ‘big games’ for the North Bullitt Eagles to close out the regular season will be on tap Thursday this week as the green and gold play host to district rival Marion County.

        Both teams have already wrapped up a spot in the Class 5-A play-offs, but a home game in the first-round will be on the line for the winner. North Bullitt will get the number two seed behind Collins with a win while Marion County will get the district’s number one seed if the Knights win on Thursday.

  • East stuns Central in final V-...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - The final intra-county volleyball game of the regular season could well be a preview of the madness that could take place in next week’s 29th District Tournament at North Bullitt.

    Meeting in Shepherdsville on Tuesday, Bullitt East and Bullitt Central battled for every point before the Lady Chargers showed why there is very little difference between the top and bottom team in the district this season as the red and gold pulled out a 25-19, 24-26, 25-15 victory.

  • Local CC teams learning the ropes

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - The area cross-country teams are still getting up to speed for the 2010 season but the early results have been promising, both on an individual as well as a team perspective.

    Central Hardin Invitational

        This past Saturday, a number of Bullitt Central and Bullitt East runners competed in the Central Hardin Invitational at Freeman Lake Park in Radcliff.

  • 'Run' will be the key...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - Two teams on the rise will collide in Mount Washington on Friday in the annual renewal of The Clash as North Bullitt travels to Bullitt East in a monumental district contest.

        Thanks to Bullitt East’s overtime victory against Marion County last week, this game suddenly has major post-season implications. While it appears that both teams are safely into the play-offs, the winner on Friday will be in a strong position to host a first-round game in the Class 4-A post-season.

  • BC rallies during second half,...

        LAWRENCEBURG - A big second half comeback was not quite enough on Friday for the Bullitt Central Cougars.

        After pulling even late in the fourth quarter, the Cougars could not take advantage of the first score in the overtime, missing on the extra point. Anderson County scored on the very next play and the extra point kick secured a 28-27 win for the Bearcats.

  • Post-season play heats up this...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - There will be play-off action all over the area this week as soccer and volleyball enter post-season play.

        The action actually started yesterday (Sunday) with play in the Girls’ Ninth District Tournament at Bullitt East. Either Bullitt East or North Bullitt will be in semi-final round action today at 5 p.m. against Nelson County.

         It should be noted that all the games in the girls’ soccer event have been moved up 15 minutes from the original starting time.

  • Second of three steps has county...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - The move to having the three Bullitt County schools in the same football district took a huge step forward on Monday when the Kentucky High School Athletic Association released it’s proposal for district alignment for four years starting in 2011.

    The proposal is now open for comment from member schools. The third and final step in the process will come Oct. 18-19 when the Board of Control will review the proposal and address feedback. That meeting will be held in Lexington.

  • No comfort found in lopsided...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - A fan looking at the box score would probably be overjoyed with Bullitt Central's 63-24 victory over Iroquois on Friday night.

        However, don't count Dan Leasor and his coaching staff among those who would be pleased.

        "We're spoiled," said Leasor, whose Cougars are now 6-2 on the season with two key road games to close out the regular season. "I'm embarrassed by this. We weren't ready tonight. If I could, I'd fire me."

  • Eagles strong again shutting out...

        HEBRON ESTATES - Putting together maybe its best half of football this season, the homestanding North Bullitt Eagles completely dominated district foe LaRue County 42-0 Friday.

        The game featured six touchdowns for the Eagles, all coming from at least 32 yards out. And two of the scores came on the first play after the Hawks committed turnovers.
