  • Football play-offs proving how...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - A high school or college football coach always walks that fine line when making out a schedule for his team.

    On one hand, you want to prepare your team as best you can and you can only do that by challenging your players in the games. Big wins over good opponents give your players confidence that they can do it again.

    On the other hand, you don’t want to over schedule and wreck your teams’ confidence with debilitating losses. Or worse, collect mounting injuries that hamper your team against opponents they should be competitive with.

  • Offensive problems haunt Lady...

    LOUISVILLE - Heading into her first season as a head coach, North Bullitt Lady Eagle mentor Amber Courtney had a lot of concerns.

    That happens when two of your top seven players are eighth-graders and there are only three upperclassmen in the whole program and one of them is playing for the first season.

    Still, Courtney’s top worry at the start of the season was finding ways for her team to put the ball in the basket. That problem was obvious on Tuesday as the Lady Eagles went into Louisville and were dominated by Sixth Region rival Presentation 62-36.

  • North set to host 8-team Barger...

    HEBRON ESTATES - For the first time in a number of years, the North Bullitt boys’ basketball program will host a holiday basketball tournament.

    The 8-team Sarah Major Barger Memorial Tournament will be played over three days starting on Monday. The tournament named in honor of the mother of North Bullitt boys’ head coach Lee Barger. Proceeds from the event will go to help fund the Sarah Barger Scholarship Fund which presents a $1,000 grant to a senior male and female athlete at North Bullitt each spring.

  • Holy Cross dims Central's...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - There was no joy in Shepherdsville on Tuesday as visiting Holy Cross took a bite out of both of the local teams in a battle of teams with the same nickname (Cougars) and school colors (maroon and gray).

    Just three nights after the Bullitt Central boys picked up their second win of the season, there was no good fortune left as coach Joe Pat Lee’s team dropped a 69-54 decision to Holy Cross.

    The visitors jumped on top early and led 19-14 after one period. They led after each of the other breaks, including a 40-29 edge in the second half.

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Here we go again!

    Another basketball season is upon and I can only assure you of one thing - the only thing you can count on is the unexpected. That is why we all love high school sports.

    That’s not to say that the obvious won’t remain that way. The Bullitt East Lady Chargers are the team to beat, not only in the county, but also in the 24th District as well as the Sixth Region.

  • BC's Satterley signs for...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - While most high school seniors are still ankle deep in college paperwork and well short of making a final decision, Bullitt Central senior Laura Satterley knew exactly what she wanted and where to get it.

    With that in mind, Satterley signed last week to continue her soccer career at Midway College near Lexington.

    “I did some research and found them,” Satterley said after making it all official in the Bullitt Central library. “I knew the assistant coach from my club team and it went from there.

  • East continues growing up fast

    LOUISVILLE - Through the first three games of the regular season, there has been no ‘down’ time for the Bullitt East Chargers.

    That is good news. The youngest and least experienced team in head coach Troy Barr’s eight seasons at the helm is on an upward learning curve. Over three games, each has been within at least five points in the final two minutes.

  • Run, CASA, Run

    The Bullitt County Bar Association sponsored a 5K run/walk to benefit the Bullitt County Court Appointed Special Advocates in Shepherdsville City Park.

    Around 100 runners participated in the trip along the Salt River and through the park.

    The top 20 finishers included: William Dengal, Neal Ballard, Troy Chester, Geri Keller, Jacob Ware, Caroline Collins, Troy Keller, Cody Crume, Jordan Stamper, Chuck Wathen, Chase Craddock, a mystery runner, David Ballard, Donna Weber, Jacob Calvert, Jessica Gray, Will Monarch, mystery runner, George Love and Krista Nall.

  • Little mistakes cost Eagles a...

    LOUISVILLE - A year ago, the North Bullitt Eagles lost a lot of basketball games. For the most part, they were not very competitive in those contests.

    Fast forward a year and the Eagles are still having trouble winning games. The good news is that the green and gold are very competitive.

    Yes, it is frustrating for head coach Lee Barger. But it is a different type of frustration. The coach just feels that the team needs to overcome some minor mistakes to start winning big.

  • Lights Out! BE dims BC's...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Bullitt Central’s dream of upsetting the state’s 10th ranked team quickly turned into a nightmare on Friday as the Bullitt East Lady Chargers connected on their first four three-pointers of the game to jump on top 22-2 late in the first quarter.

    From that point, it was all red and gold as the Lady Chargers moved to 2-0 on the season with a 67-25 victory.
