  • Lady Eagles seek final push to...

     HEBRON ESTATES – Four years, four 23rd District Tournament titles.

    Four seasons, four trips to the semi-finals of the Sixth Region Tournament.

    Those are all great accomplishments, especially for a program that before the recent surge, had very little success in girls’ soccer. The recent past, including last season’s 15-6-2 record, has been good for the North Bullitt Lady Eagles, but they are looking for more in 2016.

  • 2016-17 deer season looks...

     FRANKFORT – Many archery hunters in Kentucky will spend the last long weekend of summer getting an early jump on fall.

    Kentucky’s 2016-17 deer season kicks off the first Saturday in September with the start of the 136-day archery season. Anticipation has been building for months.

    “Everything right now points toward another good season,” said Gabe Jenkins, deer program coordinator for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources.

  • Lady Chargers set to make...

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – There is no greater broken record in area sports than the Sixth Region girls’ soccer tournament.

    In 2016, Bullitt East is once again out to break that record.

    Over the past four seasons, since the present alignment has been put into place, the Lady Chargers have lost 12 straight games to Mercy. Four of those came in the championship game of the Sixth Region Tournament, four came in the final of the 24th District Tournament and four came during the regular season.

  • Youth football league set to...

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – The 45th season for the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football, Cheer and Dance League will open play for the 2016 season on Saturday with a full slate of games on the two fields on Joe B. Hall Avenue on the site of the old Shepherdsville High School.

  • Blue Lick gets community send...

     HILLVIEW -- Before departing on a plane heading to Ephrata, Wash., the Blue Lick 18 All Stars had a little parade on Sunday.

    Escorted from the Zoneton Firehouse to Challis Ford Ball Park, the Blue Lick All Stars were honored for winning the Ohio Valley Regional baseball tournament.

    Their reward is a trip to the Babe Ruth World Series. Blue Lick will be one of 10 teams to compete for the national crown.

  • Chargers finish in middle of...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The high school sports year got started with a bag locally on Friday as the Charger Invitational at Heritage Hill, sponsored by Schmid Funeral Home, was contested on the very first day of the season.

    The field has gotten better in each of the past several years and this time around a loaded field turned out to be dominated by teams from the state’s Fourth Region as Ballard won with a 297 to beat a pair of Oldham County teams -- North Oldham at 301 and Oldham County at 312.

  • BC youth football camp

      Recently, new Bullitt Central football coach Matt Kuehn conducted a three-day youth football camp for area players.

    Over 30 participants turned out for the early morning drills.

    The Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League will open its season next Saturday (Aug. 13) and Bullitt Central will play its first game on Aug. 21.

  • East’s Duvall commits to play...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Bullitt East senior-to-be Lindsey Duvall -- after a lot of questions and second-guessing over the past few months -- on Saturday committed to play her college basketball at the University of Louisville.

  • Recruiting this year took some...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE – Picking a college is never easy.
        Throw in sales pitches from athletic coaches and it can all really go to your head.
        And let’s be honest, coaches at Division III and NAIA type schools are salesmen, maybe not like big time basketball and football coaches, but they are selling their product. At smaller schools, coaches are not only expected to win, but also to bring in what for the most part paying students.

  • North’s Wayne thought close to...

        HEBRON ESTATES – North Bullitt senior softball player Jessica Wayne never really wanted to be far away from home when it came to selecting a college.
        That made things work out just perfectly when one afternoon this spring, Spalding University head coach Art Williams introduced himself after one of the Lady Eagles’ games against Presentation. It didn’t take long for Wayne to realize that the Golden Eagles were the team for her.
