  • 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.

  • Cougar soccer will once again...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - The Bullitt Central boys’ soccer program has coach Steve Johnson back in the fold this year after a one-year leave of absence, but the squad has very little back in terms of numbers.

    It is a familiar problem for the Bullitt Central program. The team did not win a game last season and there haven’t been enough players for a junior-varsity contest in a lot of years. That pretty much means that Johnson is starting over again each summer.

  • WEEKEND FOOTBALL UPDATE:...

    Thanks to three second-quarter touchdowns, the Bullitt East Chargers kicked off the football season with a convincing 35-7 victory over Paul Dunbar of Lexington in the Joe Jaggers Classic at North Hardin High.

    Jonathan Bernard led the ground attack with 168 yards, including touchdown runs of 72 and 2 yards. See game details in Monday's edition of The Pioneer News, your only source for in-depth coverage of every game in the football season.

  • Bullitt East 'ACE'...

    Bullitt East volleyball coach Michelle Gajdik saw a 100 percent increase in the number of campers she had this summer for her annual camp at the school.

    There were 46 players taking part this season.

    The young players worked on the fundamentals of the game with hitting, serving and blocking drills.

    There was even a group of kindergarten age players taking part, working with larger balls on correct form.

    The high school volleyball season starts in two weeks.

  • Golf season kicks off fall...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - The calendar may have just flipped to August, but the 2009-2010 high school sports season kicks off this week with the start of the golf season.

    Locally, all three high schools plan to have both boys’ and girls’ teams this fall. While some of the boys’ teams will start today, the highlight of the first week will come on Wednesday when all three teams converge on Heritage Hill Golf Course for the Bullitt East Charger Open. There will be 20 teams taking part in that event.

  • North Oldham runs away with...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - The North Oldham boys’ golf team ran off and hid last Wednesday in the Bullitt East Charger Open at Heritage Hill Golf Course.

    North Oldham finished with a 298 to easily outdistance Manual’s top team that tied with Greenup County for second with a 307 total. Manual was the defending champion.

    Manual and North Oldham were also at the top of the individual results. Manual Akash Mirchandani and North Oldham’s James Wistrom tied for low medalist as each fired a 68 over the par-72 lay-out.
