  • Cougars play at home for first...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - One of the top goals posted in the Bullitt Central coaches’ office this season was not only to qualify for the post-season, but to compete in the play-offs at home.

    Mission accomplished.

    With an 8-2 record overall and a number two finish in Class 5-A, District 3, the Cougars will play at home on Friday against Jeffersontown. It is the first home play-off game for Bullitt Central since the 1979 season.

  • Rain can't dampen Cougars...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - The Bullitt Central Cougars looked Mother Nature right in the eye on Friday and didn’t blink, putting together a strong effort in adverse conditions to beat arch-rival North Bullitt 34-14 in the 34th renewal of The Game.

    It was not a fit night for man nor beast, but the Cougars sloshed through the rain and mud to win for the second straight time in the series. Bullitt Central now has a 20-14 edge in a rivalry that dates to 1976.

  • Chargers set to face an old...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - The Bullitt East Chargers will face a familiar foe on Friday when they play host to Fairdale in the first round of the Class 4-A, Region 2 play-offs.

    The two programs have played numerous games against each other during the regular season in the past. The series extended up to last season when Fairdale beat the Chargers 40-35 in Mount Washington. The teams did not renew the meetings because of situations just like this where they will meet in the post-season.

  • Eagles face speedy Western in an...

    HEBRON ESTATES - While the record for the Western Warriors might not be that impressive this season, that is not deceiving North Bullitt head coach Brett Newton as he prepares his team for the first round of the Class 4-A play-offs on Friday.

    As the number four seed, North Bullitt would often be facing teams with 8-2 records or better. Instead, the Eagles will be facing a foe with only a 5-5 mark despite winning District 3 with a 4-0 record.

    Western really loaded up on its non-district schedule.

  • Play-off route set for all teams

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Unlike a year ago when the Class 4-A play-offs were not set until the final minute because of some forfeited games and the bad wind storm that cancelled some games, area football teams are already well aware of where they will open the post-season starting next Friday.

    Class 5-A

    For the first time since 1979, Bullitt Central will host a post-season game next week when the Cougars play host to Jeffersontown, the number three team in District 4.

  • Ky. Dept. of Fish & Wildlife...

    FRANKFORT – I got lucky with my first deer. I took a shot with my .243 rifle and the deer ran straight towards my tree stand, dropping 20 yards away. That early dose of beginner’s luck was just what I needed to build my confidence and bring me back for my next hunt. But as I get ready for my fifth deer season, I’ve learned just how rare that scenario really is.

  • Charger soccer earns first...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - For the first time in the program’s history, the Bullitt East Chargers were ranked last week among the top-25 teams in the state coaches’ poll.

    That goes hand-in-hand with the Chargers posting a 13-3-2 record and facing three teams that have been ranked in the coaches’ poll at some time this season. The Chargers recently beat Waggener 1-0 and they tied perennial district kingpin Bethlehem 1-1 at home back on Sept. 10. There was also a 2-0 loss to Elizabethtown.

  • Youth deer season a time for...

    Kentucky's youth-only deer season is coming up Oct.10-11.

    Safety always comes first, but for adult mentors, patience isn't far behind.

    Hunting for big bucks or to fill the freezer may be an adult hunter's goal, but kids are out there mostly to have fun.

    "I would recommend more than anything to make sure the young ones enjoy it," said Will Connelly, a hunter training officer with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. "You shouldn't put pressure on them to shoot something."

  • To break or not to break? That...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - There really was no right or wrong answer back last winter when area high school football coaches and athletic directors were putting together schedules for the next two years.

    The big question mark was that the Kentucky High School Athletic Association was giving the teams an option of playing ten straight games after two scrimmages or playing ten games over 11 weeks with only one scrimmage.

    After this week, pretty much every team in the state has played six games no matter what option they took. It seems about equally divided between the two options.

  • Cougars can't overcome...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - The defensive effort was inspiring, but that wasn’t enough on Friday as the Bullitt Central Cougars dropped a 14-0 decision to John Hardin in a battle for the top spot in Class 5-A, District 3.

    John Hardin came into the game averaging over 400 yards of total offense through the first eight games of the season. On Friday, the Bulldogs managed just 203 yards and more than half of that came on three plays in the first half.
