  • BC girls; BE boys win county CC...

    LOUISVILLE - The high school cross-country season is reaching its stride as on Saturday the three Bullitt County programs all took part in the DeSales Invitational at McNeely Lake Park in southern Jefferson County.

    The meet served as the All-Bullitt County Championships and for the first time in recent memory, each of the three boys’ and girls’ programs fielded full teams.

  • Eagles produce a solid half in...

        LOUISVILLE - A coach wants his team to play its best ball at the end of the season in the post-season.

        North Bullitt football coach Brett Newton got his wish on Friday night - at least for a half.

        But in the end, it was the top-seeded Western Warriors who would advance to a Class 4 meeting on Friday with the Fairdale Bulldogs.

        Avenging a loss last season to the Eagles, Western overcame an early 8-0 deficit to defeat North Bullitt 24-8.

  • Magical season ends for Cougars

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - There is never a good time to play a bad football game.

    On Friday, the Bullitt Central Cougars picked the worst possible time to lay the proverbial ‘egg’ - the first round of the Class 5-A play-offs. Unable to do anything right, the second-seeded Cougars dropped a 63-13 decision at home to third-seeded Jeffersontown.

    The setback ended the season for the Cougars with an 8-3 record. It was the second straight season that Bullitt Central has posted that final number.

  • Chiefs jump on James' back...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - In a battle between the two best teams in the league all season at the ‘B’ Division level, the Overdale Chiefs pulled out a stunning reversal of the regular season meeting as they beat the Maryville Patriots 28-19.

  • Quick start fuels Overdale past...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE -- If in doubt give the ball to number 8.

    That philosophy worked just fine for the Overdale Chiefs on Saturday as the team used a quick start to beat the Maryville Patriots 12-8 in the championship game of the PeeWee Division.

    Number 8 for the Chiefs is Mario Convenuto and he rushed for 118 yards and scored both of the touchdowns for Overdale. He also led the team with nine tackles.

  • TD at 1:43 lifts Dolphins past...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE -- With 2:23 remaining in Saturday championship game of the Little Bullitts Division, the Pleasant Grove Dolphins were just about out of bullets against the Mount Washington Colts.

    The Dolphins, trailing 7-6, had just run almost eight minutes off the clock, but on fourth down at the 4-yard line, had been stopped.

  • Top players and teams ready to...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - Some of the top girls’ players and teams will be at Bullitt East on Saturday for the 8th Annual High Potential Hooparama Showcase.

    While this is the eighth year for this event, it is the first time that it is being held at Bullitt East. The day of scrimmages is conducted by Rick Bolus of the High Potential Recruiting Service. Last year, Bullitt East was the host school, but the games were played at Hoops Sports Academy in Louisville.

  • Colts end Dolphins run at...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE -- A quick start on Sunday erased the bad memories of the Mount Washington Colts’ regular season loss to the Pleasant Grove Dolphins as coach John Klefot’s team stunned the previously undefeated Dolphins on Sunday in the championship game of the ‘A’ Division.

  • Lady Chargers hit the wall in...

    SHELBYVILLE - The Bullitt East Lady Chargers ran into a wall, literally, on Tuesday in the first round of the Eighth Region Tournament at Shelby County High School.

    That led to a disappointing finish to a strong season as the Lady Chargers lost a heartbreaking 25-22, 18-25, 25-18 decision to Anderson County, a team they had beaten in two games during the regular season.

  • Nusz battles rain at state...

    BOWLING GREEN - Rain, rain it never went away last week for Bullitt East junior Katie Nusz at last week’s Leachman Buick Girls’ Kentucky State Golf Championships at the Bowling Green Country Club.

    Rain late last week forced the big event to start a day late and even on Saturday morning, the course was wet and soggy, forcing most of the players to shoot well above what they had done a week earlier in the regional tournaments.

    That was the case for Nusz who finished with a 99 after having an 86 in the regional tournament in Louisville.
