  • Chargers score on first play...

    LOUISVILLE - For the second straight week, the Bullitt East Chargers dominated the first half of a football game and then coasted to an easy victory.

    On Friday, the second victim was Class A powerhouse Holy Cross. Bullitt East scored on the first play of the game, a 55-yard run by Jonathan Bernard, and then rolled to a 34-7 halftime edge. There were not a lot of question marks in the second half before the Chargers recorded a 41-14 victory.

  • East ends long week with a...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON -- Every football player, coach and administrator has a long week at some point each fall.

    It can happen after a loss to an arch-rival or losing your starting job to another player or failing to make an interception that could have altered the outcome of your team’s game.

    That is part of football. It makes everyone stronger in the long run. That is why the game is so important for young people. Not everything goes right, no matter how hard you might try.

    But every so often those involved with football go through that really long week.

  • Dragons next for Eagles

    HEBRON ESTATES - The people in charge of the North Bullitt concession stand might want to put a few extra burgers on the grill Friday night as it might be a very long evening for fans.

    Two of the most pass-happy teams in the Jefferson County area will collide at North Bullitt on Friday as South Oldham invades. Both teams threw the ball over 60 percent of the time in losses last week.

    After both teams were shut-out last week, the coaches might try just about anything.

  • Bratcher improving following...

    UPDATE: Friday, Aug. 28

    Bullitt County Public Schools attorney Eric Farris said the status of Bullitt East High School junior varsity football player Jesse Bratcher was improving.

    On Friday Farris said Bratcher's mother reported the improvement. She said a pressure monitor and breathing tube were being removed.

    Farris said a Web site was established where progress reports may be viewed. You may visit the site here.

  • New coach? No problem. Lady...

    HEBRON ESTATES - The players will be easily recognizable, but once again local soccer fans might have to look twice to see who is coaching the North Bullitt Lady Eagles this season.

  • Numbers up for local girls...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - A record number of girls will be participating this season golf at the three Bullitt County high schools.

    The numbers are so strong at North Bullitt that second year head coach Janna Johnson has 12 players, a number higher than the boys' team has this summer. That has never happened before.

  • Jason Wheatley Wins Bourbon City...

    Bardstown, KY -- August 22, 2009- It was the Bourbon City Summer Sizzler paying $3,500 to win for Modifieds on Saturday evening at Bluegrass Speedway in Bardstown, KY and Jason Wheatley of Loretto, KY would grab the richest payday of his career by scoring the win in the 35 lap Modified main event. Other feature winners for the evening included Shane Lafollette of Hodgenville, KY in Street Stocks and Robbie Settles of Bardstown, KY in WBRT 1320-AM Sportsman.

  • With just one senior, Lady...

    HEBRON ESTATES - A year ago, North Bullitt volleyball coach Jeanette Pryor was the new kid on the block.

    The first-year head coach was thrust into a late opening at North Bullitt. She took over a veteran program with a lot of seniors. The new coach learned as much from them as they learned from her.

    Now, the roles are very much reversed. Pryor has experience on her side, but her team is young and inexperienced. Pryor is really doing all the teaching this summer.

  • Cougars have big plans, but...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - The Bullitt Central Cougars expect to be good in 2009 coming off an 8-3 season and with a move from Class 6-A to Class 5-A.

    The fans of the Cougars also have high expectations after watching the team have a winning record for the first time since 1990.

    What about Cougar head coach Danny Leasor?

    Not so fast the veteran head coach said on Monday of this week.
