     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- For the first 15 minutes of Sunday’s B Division title game, the defenses ruled.

    And then within 20 seconds, two touchdowns were put on the board.

    But, at the end of the chilly day, it would be the Old Mill Bengals who took home the championship trophy with a 22-6 victory over Lebanon Junction.

    The teams had split in the regular season but it was the Bengals who would control the action in the rubber match.

  • Colts win exciting Little...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- It was a remarkable way to start out Championship Sunday for the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League.

    The smallest of the combatants provided the most excitement of the day.

    In the end, a fumble in overtime provided the Mount Washington Colts with an exciting 12-6 victory over the Pleasant Grove Dolphins in the Little Bullitts division.

    The game was a defensive struggle as neither team could get close to the opposing goal line.

    With 3:18 in the second quarter, Old Mill’s Kaleb Serafin broke loose for a 53-yard touchdown run.

    But, on its next possession, Pleasant Grove tied the score at 6-6.

    The big run was a 13-yard play by Michael Wheatley on fourth and four.

  • Lady Generals repeat ‘A’ title

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – With the score tied at 29-29 with just over four minutes remaining in the championship game of the Girls’ Bullitt County Middle School Basketball Tournament, it looked like the hottest rivalry in the county would go down to the wire.

  • North’s Benz signs with Kentucky...

     HEBRON ESTATES – The recruiting game is never easy and seldom a sure thing, but for North Bullitt baseball player Blake Benz, the second time round might have been the perfect outcome.

    Back during the summer, Benz had an offer on the table from Evansville University, but as sometimes happens, priorities change and coaches head in different directions. This time, Benz was the odd man out.

  • Brown shows what he can do for NB

     BEREA — When the North Bullitt Eagles fell behind 14-0 in the first five minutes of play Friday  night, there was no panic along the sidelines.

    After all, North Bullitt head coach Adam Billings has always said that games are won over the course of four quarters.

    On Friday, in the second round of the Class 5A post-season tournament, the visiting Eagles would overcome that deficit and roar back with a 54-41 victory over the host Madison Southern Eagles.

      LEXINGTON – With all four runners from Bullitt County being underclassmen and two of them running in the big show for the first time, Saturday’s Kentucky State Cross-Country Championships at the Kentucky Horse Park was a very good learning experience.

  • Paxton named Mount Washington...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON— They say that you always find your way back home.
        For Mount Washington’s new community parks director Sheryl Paxton, that saying is couldn’t be truer.

After graduation, she worked in retail for a couple years before going to Eastern Kentucky University for her master’s in physical education with an emphasis in sports administration.
