     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The great news is that the new tracks at the three Bullitt County High Schools are nearly complete.

    In fact, the track at North Bullitt is finished and even rubberized and lined.

    While that is really great news for the area track programs, it will cause a few headaches for area football fans as was obvious last Friday night at Bullitt East as the team was scrimmaging Fern Creek.

  • Mount Washington All-Stars...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – A late decision to head to Florida for the Babe Ruth World Series turned into gold for the Mount Washington U-8 All-Stars last week as they swept through the tournament without a loss.

Mount Washington had beaten Burkesville twice at the end to claim the Kentucky State Championship back on July 3.

        TAYLORSVILLE – Failing to score five times inside the Spencer County 31-yard line on Friday kept the Bullitt Central Cougars from being able to put more pressure on the Bears and ending any upset plans as the home team pulled out a 34-12 win.
        The loss snapped Bullitt Central’s four game winning streak, but it was a good indicator of where the Cougars stand heading into the important district games starting this Friday when the maroon and gray travel to North Bullitt. A week later the team plays host to Bullitt East.

  • Not even the elements can slow...

  • Rockets fizzle as Chargers get...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON -- Kristin Foster had thought about whether she would kick a football.
        After all, she’s among the state leaders in goals scored for her Bullitt East Lady Chargers, one of the favorites to win the Sixth Region title.
        Having a little fun during the powder puff football game during homecoming activities, her kicking skills were captured  on film and sent to head football coach Mark Sander.

  • Final non-district tune-ups set...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – This will be the final tune-up week for all three Bullitt County football teams before they enter district play next week.

        TAYLORSVILLE – The continued to impress, but Bullitt East’s defensive woes continued on Friday as the red and gold dropped a 55-46 decision to Spencer County.
        The setback was the fourth in as many games for the Chargers with the team giving up 49 points an outing.

  • Rockets again end Eagles’ early...

        SHELBYVILLE -- In week three of the playoffs, North Bullitt could be facing a tough, physical, well-coached football team.
        So, when head coach Adam Billings’ Eagles went head-to-head against the Shelby County Rockets on Friday, he wasn’t as concerned about the score as he was how his players competed.
        Despite a 48-23 setback in Shelbyville, Billings was upbeat.

  • BC goes to 4-0, but tougher road...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE – For the second time in as many seasons, Bullitt Central moved to 4-0 on Friday when the maroon and gray put the defensive clamps on Jeffersontown, winning 24-0.
        For the game, the Jefferson County Chargers had just three first downs and except for a long pass play that ended up in the endzone being called back for a holding penalty, Jeffersontown didn’t come close to scoring.
        Bullitt Central was up 7-0 at halftime and then slowly pulled away in the second half.
