  • Cougars make do on a temporary...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - The Bullitt Central Cougar football team discovered it had a big problem just two days after practice started on July 15. Basically, the maroon and gray found out they had no place to practice.

    So, the Cougars are making do to the best of their ability in a bad situation. In fact, head coach Danny Leasor would like for the ‘new’ practice area to become the permanent facility, although, he realizes that probably won’t happen.

  • Doss first foe for Eagles

    HEBRON ESTATES - A year ago, North Bullitt and Doss were thrown together late in the season when both teams needed a game after the wind storm forced Jefferson County schools to cancel a week of games.

    Doss went to North Bullitt and pulled out a 20-7 victory.

    Now, the two neighbors are playing a more organized contest. The schools have a two-year contract with the Dragons coming to North Bullitt this season while the two squads will play in Louisville to open next season.

  • Romine takes over Lady Cougar...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - If there was one thing that has been consistent about Bullitt Central volleyball, it was in the head coaching ranks. Over the past decade, the program has had just two coaches - Buddy Gallemore and Chad Foster.

    So it really is a new era for the maroon and gray this season as Jennifer Romine steps in to lead the Lady Cougars after Foster resigned in the spring.

  • North’s Wohlschlegel...

    HEBRON ESTATES - Swimming since she was 9-years old, North Bullitt senior Carrie Wohlschlegel got a nice little reward on Monday when she signed to swim for the next four years at Campbellsville University.

    Wohlschlegel was part of the first swim program at North Bullitt when she and one other were part of the overall Bullitt County squad when she was a sophomore. The Bullitt County team, under head coach Laura Flischel, practices with members from all three Bullitt County high schools but they then break down and compete as members for their own school in meets.

  • Five BE seniors looking for...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - The Bullitt East Lady Chargers will go for an unprecedented sixth straight district volleyball crown this fall and with five experienced seniors, they are the heavy favorites.

    A year ago, Bullitt East reached the semi-finals of the Eighth Region Tournament a week after beating North Bullitt in the district final.

    Everybody is aware that Bullitt East is the favorite, but it is not something that veteran head coach Michelle Gajdik discusses much with her girls.

  • Central at home on Friday

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Bullitt Central will play at home for the only time in the first half of the season on Friday when the Cougars open their 2009 season against visiting Barren County.

    This will be the first game of the season for the Cougars, but Barren County opened the season last Saturday in the T.J. Sampson Bowl in Glasgow, rolling over Metcalfe County 35-0.

    “They got off to a good start,” Bullitt Central head coach Danny Leasor said on Monday. “They are disciplined in multiple sets. They will run the quarterback and throw to the running back.

  • Chargers face much tougher foe...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - Competition on the field will get much tougher for the Bullitt East Chargers on Friday as they travel to Dixie Highway to take on Class A powerhouse Holy Cross.

    Bullitt East opened the season with a 35-7 victory over Paul Dunbar on Saturday, but Holy Cross will be a much tougher foe. The Cougars were 7-5 last year and under first-year head coach Mike Fletcher are expected to be one of the top teams in western Jefferson County.

  • East football battling to...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - A year after a dream season, the Bullitt East Chargers are hoping to follow the same script to another successful football campaign.

    Coming off a banner season that ended in a 15-13 loss to Bell County in the Class 4-A State Championship game, the red and gold will be looking for more of the same this fall.

  • Senior-laden Chargers have big...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - One thing is for sure for the Bullitt East Chargers as they prepare to start the 2009 soccer season.

    Without a doubt, this will be the oldest team that the program has ever put on the field. Veteran head coach Mike Brangers has 12 seniors on the roster at this point and that number could technically move as high as 15 when the foreign exchange students become eligible soon.

    In fact, the Bullitt East varsity roster has only the 12 seniors and four juniors.
