  • No major changes for the long-...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- There is nothing wrong with the status quo.

    Following a year in which the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League saw one of its biggest changes of the past decade (shifting the ‘A’ Division from nine teams to six and making it more along the lines of middle school football), the league is pretty much operating without change on the eve of the start of the season Saturday.

  • Chargers hope to bounce back...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON –Coming off a season in which the team won just four games, the lowest total in a dozen years under head coach Mike Brangers, the Bullitt East Chargers are looking to get back to a winning formula this year.

    The team has nine seniors and Brangers is looking for an improved output from his team…if it can stay healthy. It was injuries that took the starch out of the team in 2014.

  • Fightmaster takes over at the...

     HEBRON ESTATES –Playing for a banner.

    That is the way that first-year North Bullitt boys’ soccer coach Eddie Fightmaster describes things as the green and gold look to overcome what was a trying season in 2015.

  • Jamison looking to build a...

      SHEPHERDSVILLE –’Winning’ and ‘soccer’ are not two words that appear in the same sentence very often when it comes to the Bullittt Centrla boys’ program.

    A year ago the Cougars won just four games and two of those wins came against Evangel. The best news was that the Cougars did win a post-season game, but that was only after they had the number four seed and beat fifth-seeded Evangel in the opening game of the 24th District Tournament.

  • Blue Lick runs out of gas in...

     SAUK PRAIRIE, WIS. -- Heading into the Ohio Valley 16-18 Regional tournament, Blue Lick manager Tommy Parker didn’t have a lot of extreme hopes.

    With nine players on the trip after winning the state tournament, Parker knew it would be tough to bring home a championship.

    However, the local team surprised everyone by reaching the championship game last Sunday.

    But with a lot of tired bodies and sore arms, Blue Lick fell just short, losing 4-0 to the host Sauk Prairie team.

  • All three area teams hit the...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The start of the high school football season on Friday will mean road trips for all three Bullitt County teams this week.

    This will be the third straight season that  a Bullitt County team has played in the Death Valley Bowl at Lincoln County High School. The past two years it was Bullitt East (posting a 1-1 mark) and now Bullitt Central has taken that spot as they will take on Madison Southern in the second of the two games on Friday.

  • Girls’ golf takes center stage...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – It will be girls’ golf that will take center stage on Saturday as Bullitt East hosts the ninth annual Schmid Funeral Home Bluegrass Invitational at Heritage Hill Golf Course.

    The tournament is under the direction of former Bullitt East head coach Andy Oder who started the event. After playing the 18-hole event at either Glenmary or Tanglewood over the first few years, the tournament has found a constant home at Heritage Hill.

  • Football scrimmages Friday;...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Football fans can get a preview glimpse of their favorite team on Friday as all three Bullitt County teams will conduct their only scrimmages of the season.

    Bullitt Central will start the action as the Cougars are set to scrimmage Seneca at 6:30 p.m. That action will be at Bullitt Central under new head coach Tye Lawson.

    At 7 p.m., Bullitt East will take the field against Fern Creek. That game will be right up the road from Mount Washington at Fern Creek.

  • Tracks, rest room will be re-bid...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Scott Kremer keeps looking for a nugget of good news to bring to the Bullitt County Public School Board.

    The owner of Studio Kremer Architects won’t get that opportunity for at least the next several months.

    Kremer was commissioned to lead a project that would improve track and field conditions at each of the high schools.

    As part of that project, North Bullitt High School was seeking to have rest room renovations at the football field.

  • BE’s Davenport follows baseball...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON –Life is good when the college that you want to attend, wants you.

    That was the story earlier this summer for Bullitt East senior pitcher Hayden Davenport when Spalding University head coach Jeremy Sleetlinger came calling. The Golden Eagles were exactly the school that Davenport was looking to attend.

    That desire had been present since former Bullitt East teammate Jacob Woodruff joined the Spalding program two years ago. A year ago, Bullitt East pitcher Chase Patton also joined the Golden Eagles’ program.
