    SHEPHERDSVILLE - The outdoor track season got started last week for all three Bullitt County programs as they all went in different directions.

    This will be a short season for track in Kentucky this year. The state championships have been moved up a week, to May 22-23 because the University of Louisville is hosting an NCAA Regional meet on the traditional weekend for the Kentucky state high school championships.

  • Tough foes lead to tough losses...

    HEBRON ESTATES - North Bullitt baseball coach Brian Wise has told his team that they will schedule anybody, anywhere, anytime this spring.

    In week one of the 2009 season that meant games against two of the top five teams in the state.

  • Just how good have 6th Region...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - When Bullitt County’s three high schools were realigned into the Sixth Region in 2005, the general consensus was that, at least at the beginning, the local programs would be able to compete better against the girls’ programs in western Jefferson County than against the boys’ sports.

        While that might still turn out to be the case in the big picture, it has been nearly impossible to keep up with the best girls’ basketball teams in the Sixth Region.

  • Mixed results for East baseball...

  • North-Central baseball game...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Because of continued drainage problems with their new field, Bullitt Central has been forced to move Wednesday’s district showdown with North Bullitt to the Eagles’ home field.

It was hoped they could play at home this week, but at this point it will take at least two days of no rain before the team can play at home.
