  • Lady Chargers show net strength...

     HEBRON ESTATES – The Bullitt East Lady Chargers have a strong volleyball team this fall.

    Just ask the North Bullitt Lady Eagles.

    On Tuesday, the red and gold invaded the Eagles’ nest and took no prisoners, beating a North Bullitt squad that had been having a pretty good season by a 25-10, 25-16, 25-15 score.

  • THE WAR: District may trump...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – It will be a clash of philosophies on Friday when Bullitt Central heads across Highway-44 to battle Bullitt East in the 27th renewal of The War.

    On one had, there is a 4-2 Bullitt Central team that will put the ball in the air most of the time, a move that lengthens games. Bullitt East on the other hand wants to keep it on the ground and shorten the game.

    Sure, Bullitt Central head coach Tye Lawson would like to run the ball more, and better, but his heart, and best player Cameron Dukes, are better suited for the air game.

  • Road racing returns to Salem...

     SALEM, Ind. – Road racing returns to Salem Speedway Fueled by the Hoosier Lottery on Sunday afternoon, Oct. 4th, as the second annual Redneck Enduro 100 on the Roval takes center stage on the tricky half-mile layout.

    The 100-lap event for the Portland Recycling Front Wheel Drive Stocks utilizes both the infield short-track and a portion of the half-mile high banks.  Drivers navigate the road course, which includes both left and right-hand turns, from the high banked track to the short-track and back.

  • Chargers end draught with win...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON -- Did it rain on Friday night?

    If you ask the Bullitt East football players and staff members, they may not know.

    What they did know is that after a tough pre-district stretch, Bullitt East got the “real” season started with a fantastic 35-6 victory over Nelson County.

    In a constant rain, the Charger defense completely snuffed out the Cardinal offense.

    The visitors had only 71 yards in total offense, including a minus three on 21 rushing attempts.

  • Classic!! Duel in the Rain goes...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Trailing for the first time all night with just 4:42 remaining in the 40th renewal of The Game, the North Bullitt Eagles didn’t panic and they didn’t try to get fancy.

  • Pair of 4-1 teams set to clash...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – There will be even more than normal on the line Friday when North Bullitt and Bullitt Central collide in the 40th renewal of The Game.

    The county rivalry angle has always been powerful in this series, but this year the district and play-off implication also come into play at a greater importance.

  • Offenses rule and so does...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Is the glass half full or half empty?

    Is it good offense or bad defense?

    There was plenty of that to mull over in the aftermath of one of the highest producing offensive high school football games in Kentucky history on Friday, a game that Spencer County won 77-42 over Bullitt Central despite the Bears throwing just two passes.

    In the end, the two offensive juggernauts combined for 1,338 yards of total offense. Spencer County set a new state record with 734 yards on the ground.

  • Third quarter sinks BE’s hopes...

     SHELBYVILLE – Inconsistency continues to consistently haunt the Bullitt East Chargers this season.

    After battling undefeated Shelby County to a 7-7 tie at halftime, the Chargers turned the ball over three times in the third quarter, allowing the Rockets to score four times on drives of less than 30 yards. That was more than Bullitt East could overcome as Shelby County recorded a 35-7 win.

    The loss dropped Bullitt East to 0-5 entering district play this week when they take on visiting Nelson County. The Friday night game will also be homecoming.

  • Good Knight for King James,...

     HEBRON ESTATES -- The worst thing that could have happened to the Marion County Knights happened.

    North Bullitt got beat pretty handily by an undefeated Shelby County team the prior Friday night.

    The second worst thing to happen was that Eagle senior Logan James was back to nearly 100 percent after being injured the previous two games.

    Combine those two things, along with the excitement of a big homecoming crowd, North Bullitt sailed to an easy 40-6.
