  • BE’s Vaughn set to expand...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Bullitt East senior Morgan Vaughn will be the first to admit that when he first entered high school, that getting an ‘athletic’ scholarship, even partial aide, was not part of his future dreams.

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – One offer was all that Bullitt East senior Sierra Waddle needed to know exactly where she wanted to attend college and compete in her favorite sport.

    That all came together last fall when the newest sport at Campbellsville University – archery – offered Waddle financial aide to attend the school. After that, Waddle put the college recruiting business behind her.

  • BC’s Phillips signs to run...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Bullitt Central senior Kelsey Phillips has developed into a top long-distance running threat in both cross-country and track, but it was the short distance to Spalding University in Louisville that made her decide to become a Lady Golden Eagle.

    In fact, it was over three months ago that Phillips decided that Spalding would be her next running home. It just took a while for it all to become official with an official signing ceremony in the Bullitt Central library recently.

  • Willis, Troutman both have great...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The college basketball season ended this week officially, but as everyone knows, the sport rarely takes a break in these parts.

  • BE’s Sharpe jumps at chance to...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – After a whirlwind two-week courtship, Bullitt East senior basketball standout Tyler Sharpe announced on Monday that he has decided to become a ‘preferred’ walk-on at the University of Louisville.

  • Tennis season nears regional...

  • Skate Park Honoring Prescott to...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON—The day before her 15-year-old son died in June 2012, Chrystal Goodman O’Bryan and her family passed by the skate park in Paoli, Indiana.

    “He wanted to stop,” she said. “We were on a family day trip and we were running behind. I wouldn’t stop. He just wanted to check it out and he didn’t understand why a small town like that had one and we didn’t.”

    The next night, Prescott Lee Goodman was hit while riding his bike on Bardstown Road across from Kroger.

  • Lady Cougar softball wins two

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – While still not world-beaters, the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars are showing some signs of being a competitive softball team after going 2-2 last week.

    The most important win came on Wednesday when Bullitt Central mauled visiting Moore 16-1 in a district game that will be used to seed the post-season tournament. The Lady Cougars had beaten Moore earlier in the season.
