  • East hoping for a healthy...

         SHEPHERDSVILLE - The Bullitt East football program, like most others, has had its ups and downs over the years.

         The one big difference is that the Chargers rarely stay down very long.

         Following a pair of disappointing seasons that saw the team lose the last three games in each campaign as well as a first-round play-off game in 2011, the red and gold are looking to make some big steps forward this fall.

  • Dream still alive for Leach as...

         LOUISVILLE - Call it a bit untraditional but Calvin Leach is fulfilling a dream.

         The Bullitt County native didn't play basketball at Pleasure Ridge Park and he is 22 years old.

         But his dream of playing college hoops led him to follow his heart.

         This fall, Leach will be attending Trinity Baptist College in Jacksonville, Fla., to play basketball.

  • Ray to take consistency to...

     BARDSTOWN - When Roger Robinson’s Bethlehem baseball squad gets back to practice in a few months, he’ll be without stalwart southpaw Brandon Ray for the first time in a long time.

  • Eagle soccer rebuilding after...

     HEBRON ESTATES - Over the past two seasons, the North Bullitt boys’ soccer program has put an entertaining style of play on the field.

  • East girls look to make hay in...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON - After a 2011 season that finished with a 12-10 record that included both a seven game winning streak and an eight game losing streak, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers are looking for new heights this season.

  • Realignment could benefit BC...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Over the past eight seasons, playing in the Ninth District, the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars struggled to be relevant.

  • BC volleyball has some big shoes...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - You can go home again. That is the case for first-year Bullitt Central volleyball head coach Katie VanVactor, a former Lady Cougar player.

    The 2005 graduate, who was Katie Lee at the time, takes over for Jennifer Romine who stepped down after getting the maroon and gray to the Eighth Region Tournament for two straight seasons including a 28th District crown in 2010.

  • 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.
