  • Southern poses speedy threat to...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - His team is 1-0 and coming off back-to-back 8-3 seasons, but Bullitt Central head coach Danny Leasor has already used the ‘C’ word when it comes to this week’s game at home against Southern.

        The ‘C’ stands for crucial. It could also stand for confidence. The cougars need both heading into their showdown battle next week with Bullitt East.

  • Meri Brian gets the call to jump...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - After medaling the past two seasons at the Kentucky Track and Field Championships, North Bullitt’s Meri Brian is ready to make the jump to Lindsey Wilson - literally.

    The high flying senior decided in the middle of the summer to take her long jump and triple jump skills to coach Edwin Hagans’ track program

  • Four-time state champ Stevens...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - A friendly suggestion three years ago has continued to pay huge dividends for Bullitt East senior Jackie Stevens.

        Already a four-time state champion in track and field, Stevens earlier this summer cast her lot to continue her throwing career at Western Kentucky University.

        That is quite an accomplishment for Stevens who three years ago had never competed in track and field. She was a basketball player and part of a strong class in that sport at Bullitt East.

  • Fox takes over Lady Eagle...

        HEBRON ESTATES - In recent seasons, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles have fielded relatively strong soccer teams.

        What the green and gold haven’t been able to do is find consistency in the coaching ranks. Melissa Fox is the new head coach, becoming the fourth different person to handle those duties over the past five years. The one positive is that Fox was the assistant coach last season so she has worked with many of the players on the team this fall.

  • Big Bang Theory lifts Chargers...

        RADCLIFF - The Bullitt East Charges opened and closed the opening game of the 2010 season with a bang on Saturday as the red and gold slipped past Bardstown 27-14 in the second game of the Joe Jaggers Classic at North Hardin High School.

        It was the second straight season that Bullitt East has opened with a win in this event. A year ago, the Chargers rolled past Lexington Paul Dunbar 37-7 en route to a 4-7 season.

  • Brangers feels that BE can still...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - You would have to excuse veteran Bullitt East boys’ soccer coach Mike Brangers if he put nametags on his players for the start of practice this summer.

        It will be hard for fans to recognize the Chargers at the start of this season after heavy graduation losses changed the profile of the program. Gone are a core group of players that helped the program to a pair of district runner-up finishes over the past four years as well as the programs’ first top-25 ranking a year ago.

  • Mayes back in coaching with...

        HEBRON ESTATES - It is a new era for the North Bullitt boys’ soccer program with new head coach Scott Mayes taking over a program that has had very little success over the past decade.

        This is not the first head coaching job for Mayes, but it is about a 360-degree change from his previous job coaching the Lady Eagle softball team. Mayes stepped down from that job two years ago to concentrate on finishing his educational requirements.

        Now, the coach is back with the sport that he played as a teenager.

  • Central, North charge out of the...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Bullitt Central and North Bullitt both shot out of the gate last week as they opened play in the 2010 volleyball season.

    Bullitt Central go a key opening win on Wednesday as they turned back district rival Spencer County 25-17, 25-23. A night later, the Lady Cougars took advantage of a poor Iroquois squad, beating the visitors 25-10, 25-6 in a match that took just 40 minutes.

    It was a good way to star the season for second-year Bullitt Central head coach Jennifer Romine.

  • Inaugural Figure 8 Showdown at...

    SALEM - The International Outlaw Figure 8 Series (IOFS) headlines six different divisions headed to Salem Speedway on Sunday for the inaugural Figure 8 Showdown.

    The August 29th event marks the second Salem Speedway appearance for the IOFS teams in 2010. The first visit in late June proved highly successful with a good spectator turnout, as well as a full field of cars.

  • Barren first for BC

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - The Bullitt Central Cougars will open the 2010 season deep in central Kentucky on Friday as they travel to Glasgow to take on Barren County.

    A year ago, the Cougars beat the Trojans 21-7, but that was a mature and experienced Bullitt Central squad playing at home. This year, the maroon and gray are in a major rebuilding job.

    Adding to the question marks for veteran head coach Danny Leasor is that Barren County already has a game under it’s belt, beating Metcalfe County 35-0 last Saturday.
