  • 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.

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Long-time Bullitt Central assistant football coach Lewis Clark was recently given the Walter Underwood Award by the Greater Louisville Football Coaches Association for his work with the Cougar program.

  • Quick turnaround suits Lady...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - Nine days can make a lot of difference in the life of a high school volleyball team - just ask the squads at North Bullitt and Bullitt East.

    On Thursday, the two squads squared off against each other in Mount Washington just nine days after playing an epic match that wasn’t decided until North Bullitt scored the final four points of the match to win the third game 26-24. In the quick rematch, it was all North Bullitt as coach Jennette Pryor’s team rolled to a 25-20, 25-10 victory.

  • East flashes soccer lightning

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - It took three hours to play 50 minutes of soccer last week before the Bullitt East Lady Chargers derailed North Bullitt by a 10-0 score.

    This was quite a turnaround from last season when the two teams tied at 1-1 in the regular season and then played a spirited game in the district tournament that Bullitt East won 1-0.

  • Neel takes over top spot for...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Patrick Neel wasn’t a soccer player during his school days, but he became familiar with the sport when his son, who is now 9-years old, starting competing in the game.

    That led to Neel becoming an assistant soccer coach at Bullitt Central three seasons ago under then head coach Neal Cox. When Cox stepped down in the spring, Neel took over the job at the top of the largest of the Lady Cougars sports programs.

  • First half miscues costly for...

    HEBRON ESTATES - The final stat sheet will show Martha Layne Collins High School pulling away from North Bullitt with 27 points in the second half, but this game was decided in the first half when the Eagles squandered two golden scoring opportunities that could have put them in the driver’s seat at halftime.

    Instead, North Bullitt was down 14-13 at the intermission. With 20 points in the third quarter, the Titans, the state’s 8th-ranked team in Class 4-A, rolled to a 41-13 victory.

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Heading into the annual showdown The War, Bullitt East head coach Doug Preston had a simple mantra for the week, telling his players that nothing was going to be given to them, that they had to go out and take the victory.
