  • ARCA Truck series, season...

    SALEM, Ind. - Season championships will be on the line when racing returns to the high banks of Salem Speedway on Sunday afternoon. The Scott County Visitors Commission Season Championship presented by Salem True Value Hardware is the final race of the year for both the Lucas Oil Super Stocks and Dave & Deb’s Winner’s Circle Street Stocks.

    Joining the Super Stocks and Street Stocks on Sunday will be the ARCA Truck Series, plus the Salem Speedway Pure Stock ovals, Pure Stock figure 8s and Front Wheel Drive Stocks.

  • Thursday night clash is big one...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - The Bullitt Central Cougars will take a noticeable step up in competition this week when they lock horns with Doss in a key Class 5-A district contest that will be played on Thursday night in Louisville.

        The game was just moved up a day in the past few weeks at the request of Doss.

        "It can be an advantage or a disadvantage," Bullitt Central head coach Danny Leasor said on Monday. "I hate to break the routine. I do think it will be to our benefit."

  • Powerful rushing attack pushes...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - In Dan Leasor’s 150th victory as a high school coach, his Bullitt Central Cougars took care of business.

        Behind a 235-yard performance from running back James Johnson, the Cougars cruised to a 34-6 victory over the winless Waggener Wildcats.

        “It was pretty much a blue collar job,” Leasor said of his 67th victory at the Cougar coach. “With three defensive starters still out, an offensive starter out and a quarterback injured, we played pretty well.”

  • Lady Charger CC team ranked sixth

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - On Tuesday, the Bullitt East girls’ cross-country program got some big news when they were ranked sixth in Class AA in the first Kentucky Track and Cross-Country Coaches Association rankings of the season.

  • BE wins third straight Bullitt...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - A win is a win anytime, but Bullitt East girls’ golf coach Andy Oder was expecting a somewhat better team score on Monday in the third annual Bullitt Cup competition at Heritage Hill Golf Course.

    There was never a doubt that the Lady Chargers were going to win. Oder’s team took the title in 2008 with a 199 and then fired a 200 last season. On Monday, the team retained the traveling trophy with a 202 score to easily get past North Bullitt at 255. Bullitt Central had only two players on Monday.

  • Eagles need to keep playing big

        HEBRON ESTATES - With two straight wins under their belt, the North Bullitt Eagles have renewed confidence heading into the first district game of the season on Friday at Shelby County.

        Following wins over Woodford County and Waggener, the new-look Eagles have reinvented themselves. When the season began, head coach Brett Newton was preparing his team to have balance on offense. After struggling again in the passing game early in the season, the team has morphed into a powerful running squad.

  • BE will need 'A' game...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - The Bullitt East Chargers will get to play on artificial turf this week and it’s not even the state championship game.

        The red and gold will instead get to play on the perfectly green grass at the new Martha Layne Collins High School in Shelbyville in a key district game for both teams. Collins was formed this school year with the split of Shelby County High School.

  • Wibbels to miss BC homecoming

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - Bullitt Central got some bad news over the weekend when it was learned that starting quarterback Damion Wibbels will miss at least one week of action due to a shoulder injury suffered in the lopsided win over Atherton last Friday.

        That will thrust sophomore Bradley Combs into the signal caller duties this week when the Cougars start district play with a home contest against dangerous Waggener.

  • Defense makes enough big plays...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - A stout defensive effort in the second half saved the Bullitt East Chargers from district doom on Friday as the red and gold survived a scare from winless Shelby County to win 21-19.

    The final score was also the score at halftime. Bullitt East allowed the Rockets only 23 yards of offense after the break. Shelby County ran just four plays in Bullitt East territory in the second half and only had two first downs over the final 24 minutes.

    “Our defense carried us,” Bullitt East head coach Doug Preston said after the game.

  • Cougars score early and often...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - The Bullitt Central Cougars had a golden opportunity to get a little of their mojo back on Friday as they took on a struggling Atherton squad.

    Bullitt Central took care of business and will now enter district play with a renewed confidence after blasting the Rebels 49-6.
