  • Eagle Midnight Madness

    The North Bullitt Eagles started hitting at the very first possible moment last Friday night as they ran through drills on Midnight Madness.

    The Eagles will be throwing the ball a lot more this season.

    The team has added assistant coach Don Biggs who coached the Eagles to the 1996 regional final, but has not been on the sidelines since 1997.


    Thanks to three second-quarter touchdowns, the Bullitt East Chargers kicked off the football season with a convincing 35-7 victory over Paul Dunbar of Lexington in the Joe Jaggers Classic at North Hardin High.

    Jonathan Bernard led the ground attack with 168 yards, including touchdown runs of 72 and 2 yards. See game details in Monday's edition of The Pioneer News, your only source for in-depth coverage of every game in the football season.

  • Chargers to open season Saturday...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - The Bullitt East Chargers will start the 2009 season on Saturday in unfamiliar surroundings and against an unknown opponent.
