  • Regional golf this week

    The first post-season for the fall sports teams will be this week as golf enters regional play for both the boys’ and the girls’ programs. Both of those events will be held at Shawnee Golf Course in west Louisville.

    Shawnee Golf Course is a par-70 course that is very flat. Scores are expected to be relatively low.

    First up will be the boys’ Region 3 tournament which will be contested on Monday. This will be an 18-hole event starting at 8:30 a.m.

  • Big game for Cougar fortunes

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - The most important game to date in Bullitt Central’s football rejuvenation will come this Friday as the maroon and gray play host to district rival Doss in a key game for both teams.

    Doss is actually the defending district champions from a year ago before Bullitt Central dropped down to this district in Class 5-A. As Cougar head coach Danny Leasor is quick to point out, the winner of this game will be assured of hosting at least the first-round play-off game in the post-season.

  • KISS! It worked wonders for BC...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - During his first stint as the Bullitt Central football coach some 25 years ago, one of Danny Leasor’s favorite acronyms was KISS - which stands for ‘Keep It Simple Stupid.’

    It took the Cougar coach half a game on Friday to remember that philosophy.

    When Bullitt Central went KISS in The War, the maroon and gray found a lot of success.

  • Rain goes away, but no decision...

    HEBRON ESTATES - The rain cleared out after a 50-minute delay, but nothing was decided on the field as the North Bullitt Lady Eagles and the Bullitt East Lady Chargers battled to a 1-1 tie in the only regular season meeting this season between the two rivals.

    At 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, the two teams took the field, but just before the opening whistle, a crack of thunder sent both teams back to their benches. Lightning a few moments later sent them to the gym at North Bullitt where the teams sat and waited for 40 minutes.

  • North needs 'mo'...

    HEBRON ESTATES - The North Bullitt Eagles will get a last chance to build some momentum heading into the last four games of the regular season which also happen to be the four most important games of 2009.

    The final opponent in the six preliminary games for the green and gold will be Christian Academy when they pay a visit to town on Friday. It will be the first football meeting ever between the two schools.

  • BC moves to 5-0 with bigger...

    LOUISVILLE - The Bullitt Central Cougars continue to win, notching victory number five on Friday, but the team continues to do it with less than a full effort for 48 minutes.

    Against the Waggener Wildcats on Friday, the Cougars capped their four game road swing with a 33-19 victory against a team that has now lost 18 straight games dating back to 2007.

    Bullitt Central is now 5-0 for the first time in 20 seasons. Just as importantly, the maroon and gray stand 1-0 in district play.

  • Eagles have no answer for Tates...

    HEBRON ESTATES - Homecoming week usually culminated with an excited crowd and an energetic football team.

    However, that wasn’t to be the case on Friday evening at North Bullitt High School.

    For whatever the reason, it was a subdued performance both on and off the field as the Eagles were defeated by an athletic Tates Creek team 29-7.

    The loss dropped North Bullitt to 2-3 on the season.

    “We took a big step backwards tonight,” said head coach Brett Newton. “This is the first step backwards that we’ve taken.”

  • East needs late heroics to turn...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - After rolling through the first game 25-8, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers probably didn’t think they were going to get a lot of court time Thursday night against Bullitt Central.

    They were wrong. The Lady Cougars roared back from the dead, winning the second game 25-22 and forcing a winner-take-all showdown. The third game was tied at 16-16 before Bullitt East scored eight straight points to secure a 25-17 victory.

    The change of fortune in the second game is not something new to Bullitt East head coach Michelle Gajdik.

  • Mercy's Tran, Notre Dame...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - After starting the week with one of their best showings ever in beating defending regional champion Central Hardin, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers were looking for big things on Saturday in their own invitational tournament.

    The magic from early in the week did not roll over to Saturday. Playing in the Lady Charger Invitational at Tanglewood Golf Course in Taylorsville, coach Andy Oder’s team struggled with their game and finished tenth out of 16 teams.

  • Lady Chargers blitz BC 9-0

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - In the first intra-county girls’ soccer match of the season, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers struck quickly and then never looked back on Monday as they rolled past visiting Bullitt Central 9-0.

    Both teams had a pair of victories under their belts this season, but this one belonged to Bullitt East once they scored seven minutes into the game. Coach Brittany Orme’s team was up 4-0 at halftime and then coasted to the victory.
