  • Learning experience for local CC...

      LEXINGTON – With all four runners from Bullitt County being underclassmen and two of them running in the big show for the first time, Saturday’s Kentucky State Cross-Country Championships at the Kentucky Horse Park was a very good learning experience.

    In the girls’ 5,000-meter event, Bullitt Central junior Erika Hutchinson was the first of the three local runners back to the finish line as she finished 198th in a time of 23:33.05. Hutchinson was running in her second consecutive state finals race.

  • Paxton named Mount Washington...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON— They say that you always find your way back home.
        For Mount Washington’s new community parks director Sheryl Paxton, that saying is couldn’t be truer.
        Raised in Lexington, Paxton attended Asbury University with a Bachelor’s degree in exercise science and a minor in recreation. After graduation, she worked in retail for a couple years before going to Eastern Kentucky University for her master’s in physical education with an emphasis in sports administration.

  • Local athletes shine during...

        LEXINGTON – A large number of Bullitt County runners took part on Oct. 22 in the Elementary and Middle school State Cross-Country Championships which were held at Masterson Station Park near Lexington.
        There were many runners from Mount Washington who during the season train together as part of the East Running Club. For this meet, they each represented their own schools, be it at the elementary or middle school level.

  • ‘Black Monday’ sinks local...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – It was ‘Black Monday’ for Bullitt County volleyball as all three of the local squads were knocked off in the opening round of the Sixth Region Tournament.

    Bullitt Central, coming off the championship in the 23rd District Tournament last week, got to play at home on Monday against 21st District runner-up Pleasure Ridge Park, but a slow start had the Lady Cougars playing from behind the rest of the night as they lost 25-10, 25-23, 25-18.

  • BC boys win MKAC cross-country...

      BARDSTOWN – Bullitt Central’s two cross-country programs capped off an impressive fall last Tuesday with the boys’ team winning the Mid-Kentucky Athletic Conference Championship while the girls’ team finished second.

    The MKAC is a somewhat informal group of schools from Bullitt, Nelson, LaRue and Washington County who compete for titles against each other in both cross-country and track.

  • Bullitt Central wins district...

        OKOLONA -- For the past three years, the finals of the 23rd District volleyball tournament matched North Bullitt and Bullitt Central.
        In each of those three years, the Lady Eagles went into the Sixth Region tournament as the district champs.
        But, this year was different.
        The Bullitt Central Lady Cougars powered through a three-set victory over North Bullitt, 25-20, 25-23, 25-16.
        But the championship trophy may have actually been won on Oct. 3.

  • NB wins, but Dunnavan to miss...

     NEW CASTLE – Battling the limited availability of its leading returning scorer, Travis Dunnavan, the North Bullitt Eagles still managed to open the season with a road win, beating Henry County 58-46.

    Dunnavan missed the team’s two scrimmages with a hyper-extended knee, but he was in uniform for the first game of the season. Head coach Korey Craddock didn’t start the senior, but early in the first half Dunnavan entered the game and scored 17 of his team-high 22 points before halftime as the Eagles bolted to an eight-point advantage.

  • Bullitt Central wins in opener...

     BEDFORD – The Jessie Curry era at Bullitt Central got off on the right foot on Tuesday as the maroon and gray went on the road and defeated Trimble County 77-51.

    An opening win might have been a little more than the ultra-young and inexperienced Cougars could have hoped for at this early stage, especially when the team’s only returning player with varsity experience, senior Danny Goldsmith, was held to just four points after going to bench after two early fouls.

  • Graham scores 33 as Lady Cougars...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – When Josh Cravens took over the Bullitt Central girls’ basketball program in May the schedule for the upcoming season was pretty well set.

    Needless to say, if he had made the schedule, the Lady Cougars would not have opened the season Tuesday on the road at Trimble County. Bullitt Central has just one returning starter and only three players with any varsity experience while the Lady Raiders return most of its roster from the team that won the Eighth Region title a year ago.

  • Castle ready for soccer career...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON – Bullitt East senior Kelsey Castle may not have had Georgetown College at the top of her list when the process started, but after one visit to the school, Castle moved the Tigers to the number one spot on her destination list.
        That was a few months ago and last Wednesday, Castle made it all official, signing an NAIA letter of intent with Georgetown and head coach Leah Crews Castleman.
