  • East stuns Central in final V-...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - The final intra-county volleyball game of the regular season could well be a preview of the madness that could take place in next week’s 29th District Tournament at North Bullitt.

    Meeting in Shepherdsville on Tuesday, Bullitt East and Bullitt Central battled for every point before the Lady Chargers showed why there is very little difference between the top and bottom team in the district this season as the red and gold pulled out a 25-19, 24-26, 25-15 victory.

  • Local CC teams learning the ropes

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - The area cross-country teams are still getting up to speed for the 2010 season but the early results have been promising, both on an individual as well as a team perspective.

    Central Hardin Invitational

        This past Saturday, a number of Bullitt Central and Bullitt East runners competed in the Central Hardin Invitational at Freeman Lake Park in Radcliff.

  • 'Run' will be the key...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - Two teams on the rise will collide in Mount Washington on Friday in the annual renewal of The Clash as North Bullitt travels to Bullitt East in a monumental district contest.

        Thanks to Bullitt East’s overtime victory against Marion County last week, this game suddenly has major post-season implications. While it appears that both teams are safely into the play-offs, the winner on Friday will be in a strong position to host a first-round game in the Class 4-A post-season.

  • BC rallies during second half,...

        LAWRENCEBURG - A big second half comeback was not quite enough on Friday for the Bullitt Central Cougars.

        After pulling even late in the fourth quarter, the Cougars could not take advantage of the first score in the overtime, missing on the extra point. Anderson County scored on the very next play and the extra point kick secured a 28-27 win for the Bearcats.

  • Post-season play heats up this...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - There will be play-off action all over the area this week as soccer and volleyball enter post-season play.

        The action actually started yesterday (Sunday) with play in the Girls’ Ninth District Tournament at Bullitt East. Either Bullitt East or North Bullitt will be in semi-final round action today at 5 p.m. against Nelson County.

         It should be noted that all the games in the girls’ soccer event have been moved up 15 minutes from the original starting time.

  • Second of three steps has county...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - The move to having the three Bullitt County schools in the same football district took a huge step forward on Monday when the Kentucky High School Athletic Association released it’s proposal for district alignment for four years starting in 2011.

    The proposal is now open for comment from member schools. The third and final step in the process will come Oct. 18-19 when the Board of Control will review the proposal and address feedback. That meeting will be held in Lexington.

  • No comfort found in lopsided...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - A fan looking at the box score would probably be overjoyed with Bullitt Central's 63-24 victory over Iroquois on Friday night.

        However, don't count Dan Leasor and his coaching staff among those who would be pleased.

        "We're spoiled," said Leasor, whose Cougars are now 6-2 on the season with two key road games to close out the regular season. "I'm embarrassed by this. We weren't ready tonight. If I could, I'd fire me."

  • Eagles strong again shutting out...

        HEBRON ESTATES - Putting together maybe its best half of football this season, the homestanding North Bullitt Eagles completely dominated district foe LaRue County 42-0 Friday.

        The game featured six touchdowns for the Eagles, all coming from at least 32 yards out. And two of the scores came on the first play after the Hawks committed turnovers.

  • North boys, East girls fall in...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - Life has been tough for the Bullitt County soccer programs since the formation of the present Ninth District alignment over the past decade or so.

        No local team, boys or girls, has been able to win a title over powerful teams from the three Nelson County schools. Only twice, both times by the Bullitt East boys, has a local team reached the championship game and then advanced on to regional play.

        There was more frustration this season, but there were also some glimmers of hope.

  • Bullitt Central breaks streak,...

        HEBRON ESTATES - For the past six years, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers had a grip on the 29th District volleyball championship.

        However, hit by heavy graduation losses, Bullitt Central coach Jennifer Romine knew that the district crown was up for grabs this season.

        Shedding some first-game tightness, it was indeed time for the Lady Cougars to shine by coming from behind to defeat Bullitt East, 21-25, 26-24 and 25-16.
