  • Oops, stuff happens. Second...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Oops.

    Sometimes the timing is just not right in a twice weekly newspaper.

    That was certainly true in Monday’s edition of The Pioneer News as the second page of the sports section had the quarter-page advertisement for the pre-sale of the book that the Cats’ Pause publication was selling about the University of Kentucky’s ‘remarkable’ basketball season.

  • North continues to play well...

     LOUISVILLE -- It was the team’s only game of the week but it was an important one.

    The North Bullitt Eagles went to Male High on Tuesday to battle on of the region’s perennial powerhouses.

    And the team came home with an impressive 5-4 victory.

    But while it may have been the first Eagle victory over the Bulldogs in recent history, Wise was impressed that the post-game celebration was nothing out of the ordinary.

  • Why I Coach

    April 2, 2015

     

    TO: Bullitt County HS Football Fans

     

    Today, I literally turn over the keys to North Bullitt football to my successor, Adam Billings. I wish him complete and early success as he will be coaching “my” boys for the next few years. I thank everyone associated with North Bullitt football for their support. Coach Vincent, you just became the “old man” in the county!

     

  • 2015 Salem Speedway season kicks...

     SALEM, Ind. - Salem Speedway Fueled by the Hoosier Lottery kicks-off it’s 69th year of existence on Sunday, April 12th, with four-divisions sharing the famed racing facility for an afternoon of on-track action.

    The season opening event features the Lucas Oil Great American Stocks and Midwest Thunder Roadsters on the half-mile high banks, with the O’Reilly Auto Parts Pure Stocks and Portland Recycling Front Wheel Drive Stocks competing on the quarter-mile infield oval.

  • BC wins first in softball while...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Tied at 2-2 heading into the top of the seventh inning on a road trip to Breckinridge County, the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars exploded for nine runs in the top of the final frame to win 11-2 for the team’s first win of the season.

    In the big inning, the Lady Cougars sent 12 batters to the plate and they pounded out eight hits including back-to-back doubles from Belle Leonard and Brooklyn Benefield that helped break the game open as well as a bases clearing triple by Sarah Noble.

  • BE and BC clash at Nelson County...

     BARDSTOWN – Bullitt Central entered the area high school track wars last week as they opened their season at the aptly named Nelson County Icebreaker Meet.

    Bullitt East, which had already competed in two meets prior to this one, was also in the field and had a strong outing on the girls’ side.

    Girls’ Action

    Bullitt East picked up seven wins in the 17 events and showed that they will be one of the top teams in the area again this season.

  • Wind not blowing at NB leads to...

     HEBRON ESTATES -- Maybe for the first time in recent memory the wind was not blowing into the face of the batters at North Bullitt High.

    With no wind, skipper Brian Wise’s team turned into the long-ball Eagles last week.

    Six balls left the yard for North Bullitt. Unfortunately, one also left off the bat of a visiting player.

    Still, entering the third week of play, Wise has to be pleased with his team’s 6-3 record.

  • Chargers have the answers in 9-0...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Holding Bullitt Central to just three hits and snuffing out an early scoring opportunity, the Bullitt East Chargers rolled to a 9-0 victory over their county rivals in cold and windy conditions.

    The clash on Tuesday at Bullitt Central is the only regular season meeting between the two programs scheduled for this season.

  • KHSAA sanctions cornhole...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Earlier this week, the Kentucky High School Athletic Association voted to sanction cornhole as a competitive sport starting with the 2015-2016 school year.

    Kentucky now becomes the first state to join the cornhole bandwagon and other southern states are soon expected to join the cornhole phenomenon.

    Adding cornhole is seen as a move to put the ugly ‘yard darts’ debacle in the rearview mirror for the KHSAA.

  • Lindey Young scores 16 in NAIA...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE-- Former Bullitt East standout Lindey Young scored 16 points on Tuesday in the Women's NAIA National Championship Game in Independence, Missouri, but it wasn't enough as her Campbellsville Lady Tigers fell to Oklahoma City 80-63.
        The appearance in the championship game was a first for the Lady Tigers.
