  • 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.

  • Pick Six...Bullitt East...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - Don’t think that winning gets old, even if your school has just won its sixth straight 29th District volleyball championship.

    Bullitt East coach Michelle Gajdik’s squad swept through the district tourney on its home floor last week and is preparing to play in the 8th Region tournament in Shelby County.

    The Chargers defeated Spencer County 25-17, 25-19 in the final. In the opener, Bullitt East turned back North Bullitt 25-21, 25-17.

  • East grabs 1-0 win over North

    BARDSTOWN - It would be some consolation but it least the Bullitt East Lady Charger soccer team got to fight for another day.

    With its 1-0 victory over North Bullitt in the District 9 soccer tournament in Nelson County, Bullitt East had the challenge to face the top-seeded Bethlehem squad in the semifinals Monday night.

    On Sunday, the local teams had to switch to an elementary school facility due to heavy rains making the Nelson County football field unplayable.

    It was an evenly-played contest as both teams had numerous attempts on goal.

  • Chargers' soccer campaign...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - Bullitt East’s dream soccer season ended with a bitter disappointment last week as the red and gold were eliminated from post-season play with a 4-3 loss to Nelson County in two overtimes.

    Few soccer games will ever have as much emotion as this one did in the semi-finals of the Ninth District Tournament. This was the fourth straight year that the two rivals have met at this stage of the post-season. In 2006 and 2007 it was Bullitt East winning before Nelson County turned the tables last year.

  • Bluegrass Speedway 2009...

    BARDSTOWN - With the racing portion of the 2009 racing season completed, Bluegrass Speedway track promoters David and Anita Ferrell will officially wrap up the 2009 racing campaign with their 10th Annual Championship Awards Banquet on Saturday evening November 14 at Samuels Hall, located next door to Bluegrass Speedway at the Nelson County Fairgrounds.

  • Cross-country regionals set for...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - For perhaps the first time in history, all three Bullitt County high schools could field full teams this week in the regional cross-country meets in Jefferson County.

    While all the schools have had programs in recent years, they didn’t always have enough to fill all the spots available. In cross-country, teams can run as many as seven runners in a meet with the top five times earning team points.

  • Play-off ticket prices

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - With two Bullitt County teams playing at home this week in the first round of the state football play-offs, fans should note that there are a few changes in the ticket structure for the games at Bullitt East and Bullitt Central.

    David Marshall, the Director or Secondary Schools in Bullitt County, announced on Monday that ticket prices for the games played at Bullitt East and Bullitt Central will be $6 each for all fans. There will be no pre-sale tickets at either school.

  • Mud grabs the spotlight Friday

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - As the two teams shook hands at the end of The Game on Friday night, Bullitt Central head coach Danny Leasor and his North Bullitt counterpart met off to one side. After shaking hands, the two long-time rivals smiled and then Newton broke out laughing.

    What was said in that short moment?

    “He told me we had a really nice team,” Leasor said back in the dry confines of the coaches’ office. “And that we had a really bad field.”

    Leasor couldn’t argue and he certainly could see the humor in the quote.

  • More experienced Cardinals rain...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - As the visitors were celebrating in the rain, the Bullitt East Chargers were already in the locker room on Friday night.

    The Bourbon Bowl may spend the next year in Nelson County’s trophy case but coach Doug Preston’s Chargers have another prize in mind.

    Putting the 31-6 defeat into the past, Preston and his team were already talking about this Friday night’s playoff opener in Mount Washington against 4-A foe Fairdale.

    In reality, there weren’t a lot the Chargers wanted to remember from a windy, rainy night.

  • 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.
