  • 2017 -- A Sports Year to Remember

     From Bullitt East’s Lindsey Duvall being named Miss Basketball to a pair of state cheerleading championships, 2017 was certainly a year to remember on the local high school sports scene.

  • Central wins two of three at...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Playing three games in two days, the Bullitt Central Cougars picked up a pair of wins just before Christmas playing in the BTN/WLBQ Christmas Classic at Butler County High School.

  • Bullitt East reaches final of...

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – Playing an extra game and not getting home until early on Christmas Eve was just fine with the Bullitt East Chargers as they competed in the Owensboro Invitational Tournament just before the holidays.

  • 2017 Bullitt County Player of...

     Bullitt Central junior Daylin Huff was recently named the Bullitt County Player of the Year.

    Huff, an All-District quarterback and defensive back, rushed for 1,507 yards while scoring 15 touchdowns.

    He also completed 60 percent of his passes for 284 yards.

    Huff also had four interceptions on defense.

  • Press pressure lifts Lady Eagles...

     CAMPBELLSVILLE  -- North Bullitt head coach David Marion is not a jockey.

    However, it appeared that as his Lady Eagles were down by 10 strides…points … with four minutes to go, Marion told his players to “go.”

    Down the back stretch, North Bullitt outscored previously undefeated Casey County 18-5 to win the Food Pantry Holiday Classic at Campbellsville High School.

    Marion was proud of his team’s 60-57 win against a very solid Casey County squad.

  • Lady Chargers make strides in...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – A pair of short bursts in the fourth quarter of each of the final two games of the tournament kept the Bullitt East Lady Chargers from making last week a coming out party for a program that started this season without any returning starters.

    Still, coach Chris Stallings’ program posted a 2-2 record in the second Queen of the Commonwealth tournament and finished fourth in a loaded field that included four teams ranked among the top-25 teams in the pre-season as well as defending state champion and pre-season number one Mercer County.

  • BE’s Murphy signs for golf at...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Often when it comes to the smaller sports and college signings, athletes will work through the head coach.

    But for Bullitt East senior Mark Murphy, knowing Campbellsville assistant coach Casey Young for the past several years paid big dividends when it came time to make contact with a college. It didn’t take very long for Young to sell head coach Jim Ward on the need to ink Murphy.

    It also didn’t hurt that Bullitt East golf coach has known Young since both played and completed in college against each other.

  • Early Wrestling Action

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- The high school wrestling season is up and running in Bullitt County.

    Bullitt Central recently hosted a tri-meet with Anderson County and South Oldham.

    The Cougars finished in a 36-36 tie with Anderson County and fell to South Oldham 39-30 in front of an excited crowd of all ages.

    All three schools have programs this season with both Bullitt East and North Bullitt having new coaches.

    Bullitt Central returns Nick Ackley for his second year as the head coach.

  • Cheerleading is all the rage in...

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – Rivalries are great things.

    More than anything, they set a bar for others to emulate. Sometimes one rival raises another. Other times two rivals push each other to the top.

    Make no mistake about it, Bullitt Central and Bullitt East are rivals when it comes to cheerleading. But the two programs have done it the right way. They don’t fight and scrap. Instead, they support each other.

  • Eastside 8th-grader wins Ohio...

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – Jumping right into the family business paid off handsomely this season for Eastside Middle School 8th-grader Cole Knieriem as he won the points title in the Junior Dragster category at Ohio Valley Dragway.

    Racing since he was eight-years old, Knieriem just won his first championship at the age of 13, a relatively young age to win a title in a division that includes drivers up to 17 years of age.

    The family had a great season as older sister Shelby, a sophomore at Bullitt East, finished fifth in the same division.
