      SHEPHERDSVILLE –’Winning’ and ‘soccer’ are not two words that appear in the same sentence very often when it comes to the Bullittt Centrla boys’ program.

    A year ago the Cougars won just four games and two of those wins came against Evangel. The best news was that the Cougars did win a post-season game, but that was only after they had the number four seed and beat fifth-seeded Evangel in the opening game of the 24th District Tournament.

  • Blue Lick runs out of gas in...

     SAUK PRAIRIE, WIS. -- Heading into the Ohio Valley 16-18 Regional tournament, Blue Lick manager Tommy Parker didn’t have a lot of extreme hopes.

    With nine players on the trip after winning the state tournament, Parker knew it would be tough to bring home a championship.

    However, the local team surprised everyone by reaching the championship game last Sunday.

    But with a lot of tired bodies and sore arms, Blue Lick fell just short, losing 4-0 to the host Sauk Prairie team.

  • All three area teams hit the...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The start of the high school football season on Friday will mean road trips for all three Bullitt County teams this week.

    This will be the third straight season that  a Bullitt County team has played in the Death Valley Bowl at Lincoln County High School. The past two years it was Bullitt East (posting a 1-1 mark) and now Bullitt Central has taken that spot as they will take on Madison Southern in the second of the two games on Friday.

  • Girls’ golf takes center stage...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – It will be girls’ golf that will take center stage on Saturday as Bullitt East hosts the ninth annual Schmid Funeral Home Bluegrass Invitational at Heritage Hill Golf Course.

    The tournament is under the direction of former Bullitt East head coach Andy Oder who started the event. After playing the 18-hole event at either Glenmary or Tanglewood over the first few years, the tournament has found a constant home at Heritage Hill.

  • Football scrimmages Friday;...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Football fans can get a preview glimpse of their favorite team on Friday as all three Bullitt County teams will conduct their only scrimmages of the season.

    Bullitt Central will start the action as the Cougars are set to scrimmage Seneca at 6:30 p.m. That action will be at Bullitt Central under new head coach Tye Lawson.

    At 7 p.m., Bullitt East will take the field against Fern Creek. That game will be right up the road from Mount Washington at Fern Creek.

  • Tracks, rest room will be re-bid...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Scott Kremer keeps looking for a nugget of good news to bring to the Bullitt County Public School Board.

    The owner of Studio Kremer Architects won’t get that opportunity for at least the next several months.

    Kremer was commissioned to lead a project that would improve track and field conditions at each of the high schools.

    As part of that project, North Bullitt High School was seeking to have rest room renovations at the football field.

  • BE’s Davenport follows baseball...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON –Life is good when the college that you want to attend, wants you.

    That was the story earlier this summer for Bullitt East senior pitcher Hayden Davenport when Spalding University head coach Jeremy Sleetlinger came calling. The Golden Eagles were exactly the school that Davenport was looking to attend.

    That desire had been present since former Bullitt East teammate Jacob Woodruff joined the Spalding program two years ago. A year ago, Bullitt East pitcher Chase Patton also joined the Golden Eagles’ program.

  • Truck, tractor pulling series at...

     CLERMONT -- It’s time for the big trucks to return to the Bullitt County Fairgrounds.

    The Battle of the Bluegrass pulling series will again bring the big machines to the fairgrounds on Saturday, Aug. 8.

    Despite a hot and humid night last year, a big crowd showed up and were treated at a great evening.

    Tom McConnell and Kevin Fulks own the regional truck and tractor pulling series which competes from spring through fall.

    A number of the events are televised by NBC Sports.

  • Fall sports previews to start in...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Summer is over!

    I can now make that official statement as I begin to work on previews for all the fall sports teams. The previews will start in Monday’s edition and that will allow basically four issues for golf, soccer, volleyball and football previews.

    I really can’t give you any type of order in which they will run other than to say that football previews won’t run until the week of Aug. 17.

  • East golfers make run at own...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Finishing with four scores in the 70s normally means great things during a high school golf match.

    While certainly not disappointed with the opening results of the seasons, the Bullitt East Chargers found they still have some work to do this season after shooting an impressive 303 in The Charger Open Presented by Schmid Funeral Home only to finish 11 strokes behind Franklin County for the top spot overall.
