  • North opens with Doss on Thursday

        HEBRON ESTATES - The North Bullitt Eagles have seen a lot of Doss running back Tyrone Mack over the last two years. Most of the time they want to forget what he has done.

        The Eagles, with high expectations for this season, will open the 2010 campaign on Thursday against one of the toughest teams on their schedule. Doss was only 5-7 a year ago but they beat North Bullitt 13-0 in last season’s first game. The Dragons are picked second to state runner-up John Hardin in Class 5-A, district three.

  • Lady Charger golf heats up as...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - Bullitt East Lady Charger golf coach Andy Oder wasn’t pleased with the way his team opened the season, but as week one continued the team started to show its strength battling many of the top teams in the state.

  • Experience is positive for all...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - For the first time ever, all three local golf teams will call the same course home this season as North Bullitt has moved to Heritage Hill Golf Course, joining both Bullitt Central and Bullitt East at the beautiful 18-hole course just south of Shepherdsville.

        Another change for local boys’ golf this season is at North Bullitt where Brian Courtney is taking over the Eagle program from John Hunt. Courtney will continue as an assistant basketball coach at North Bullitt, but this will be his first stint as a head coach.

  • Dolphins offer first step to...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - Lower overall numbers for the 2010 season proved to be both good news and bad news for the Bullitt County Dolphins Swim Team.

        On one hand, having only 57 team members for this season made scoring points in the team's meets against other small swim programs difficult. On the other hand, second-year head coach Savannah Caudill, who did not have an assistant coach, could spend more individual time with each of the swimmers on the squad.

  • Youth football ready to tackle...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - The Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League beat the heat last weekend as it kicked off the 2010 season, but league president Joe Downs knows that won’t always be the case.

        With that in mind, the largest independent sports league in the county has developed an alternate schedule in case of extreme heat this season.

  • Football camps at BC and BE

    With the start of youth league football practices already under way, a number of area players added to their football time recently with trips to football camps at Bullitt Central and Bullitt East.

    Bullitt Central head coach Danny Leasor had 55 players for a week long camp in the mornings with no pads used.

    Bullitt East head coach Doug Preston opted to use the pads for his 35 players in the two-day camp he conducted.

  • Blue Lick wins runner up in 13-...

        HENDERSON - Coming into the state 13-year-old tournament, coach Tommy Parker felt his Blue Lick team was among the top three squads.

        It turned out that Parker was correct as his team finished as the state runner-up for a second consecutive season.

        But it was certainly an exciting run to reach the final game.

        After being shelled by the host team 14-4 on Friday, Blue Lick came back to push Henderson to the limit on Sunday afternoon.

  • Bullitt Lick on way to world...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - When Bullitt Lick Middle School’s archery team was established in November, no one could have expected they would compete in a national tournament six months later.

        After all, most of the team members had never even picked up a bow before joining the squad, much less competed.

        It appeared the odds were stacked against them when they headed for Louisville to compete in the  National Archery in the Schools Program Nationals competition in May.

  • Timberwolf Hoops Camp

        ZONETON - One of the final events of the summer basketball camp circuit took place last week with the Timberwolf Basketball Camp at Zoneton Middle School.

        The camp was under the direction of Zoneton boys’ head coach Casey Bannon who is also a volunteer assistant coach with the North Bullitt Eagles.

        The camp was divided into two sessions with the younger players in the morning before the older players took part in the afternoon session.
