  • BE in mix, set for regional

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Over the past two weeks, the ‘big three’ of Fifth Region boys’ golf have been punching and pushing each other in major weekend tournaments as they prepare for next Tuesday’s Regional event at the Elizabethtown Country Club.

    Throughout the season it has been Elizabethtown, Central Hardin and Bullitt East at the top of the team scores amongst Fifth Region squads at any tournament.

  • North beats Central 9-3; Mercy...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – In a rematch of the past two 23rd District championship games, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles showed that they are still the team to beat in the first-round of the post-season as they beat Bullitt Central 9-3 on Wednesday.

    Since the present district alignment for girls’ soccer was put into affect in 2012, the Lady Eagles have not lost a game to a district foe. Bullitt Central has been right behind, beating Southern and Moore before falling to North Bullitt.

  • Staggering numbers, but a loss...

    BUCKNER -- If Brett Newton had been just a fan, he would have left the Oldham County field impressed.

  • Bitter disappointment for...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON – In high school football there is often a fine line between spectacular glory and bitter disappointment.

         The Bullitt East Chargers learned about the former and just how fine that line can be on Friday as they were shocked by visiting Central Hardin 35-28.  The final touchdown for the Bruins was scored on a 47-yard pass with just 38 seconds remaining in the game.

  • Cougars stay hot, rout Calloway...

    PADUCAH – Heading into Saturday’s game against Calloway County that was part of the McCracken Bowl, Bullitt Central head coach Danny Leasor emphasized ‘taking care of business.’

         We all should have it so easy in the business world.

  • Scouting for a successful deer...

     FRANKFORT - Work, family and school commitments can leave little free time in a day, but hunters can help themselves by carving out some time to scout an area.

    Kentucky’s archery season for deer is underway with the crossbow, youth-only firearm, muzzleloader and modern gun deer seasons still to come. So there’s time to find a place to hunt and scout it.

  • It was a perfect weather weekend...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Once again this season, The Pioneer news will run the results from the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League in each Wednesday edition during the season.

    The statistics used each week are provided to the newspaper by the league and the individual teams. Questions about yardage, scoring and tackles should be directed to the league and those teams.

  • BE’s homecoming clash is big;...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – One of the biggest football games in the area this weekend will be in Mount Washington as undefeated Central Hardin visits to take on Bullitt East and its three-game winning streak.

    Adding to the festivities in Mount Washington is the fact that it will be homecoming for the Charger Nation.

  • East and North beat the elements...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – What has been a tough first-part of the season for both teams, got a little better for the Bullitt East Chargers on Thursday as they turned back North Bullitt 2-0 in boys’ soccer action.

    The contest was almost not played as heavy rains the previous night hit the area, but as Bullitt East head coach Mike Brangers noted, his field was so dry that it just sucked up the rain. There was also intermittent drizzle the afternoon of the game, but it stopped 10 minutes before the start of the game and did not return.

  • Lady Chargers sweep first round...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Unfortunately, volleyball in Bullitt County is the last of a dying breed in one important aspect -- the sport is the last in which all three local programs still play each other home-and-away during the regular season.

    The first rotation of games started last Tuesday when Bullitt East defeated North Bullitt 3-0. On Monday of this week, the Lady Chargers were at home again and defeated Bullitt Central 3-1.

    On Thursday, North Bullitt and Bullitt Central will clash in an important 23rd District match in Shepherdsville.
