     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After all three local football teams played at home last Friday, all three will be on the road this week as the games are dwindling down to the start of district play on Sept. 23.

    For Bullitt Central, this is the ‘shadow’ portion of the Cougars’ schedule. Somehow, in scheduling three years ago for the past two seasons, Bullitt Central managed to schedule three non-district foes a week after one of their Bullitt County rivals played the same team.

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – One of the ‘smart’ answers that football coaches get when it comes to tough decisions is ‘that’s why you get paid the big bucks.’

    For North Bullitt head coach Adam Billings, he could be getting paid twice as much and it still wouldn’t be enough for the coach and the really tough decision that he has to make this week when it comes to his starting quarterback. The only good part of the process is that there appears to be no wrong answer.

  • Stallings, Bowles retire; youth...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Two of the most successful coaches in Bullitt East history, girls’ basketball coach Chris Stallings and baseball coach Jeff Bowles have already or will soon be retiring.

    Let that sink in for a moment.

    OK, Bullitt East fans can take a deep breath and Charger foes can drop the raised eyebrow. Neither Stallings nor Bowles is going to stop coaching.

    What both have done is retire from their teaching positions. Both will remain as the head coach of their respective programs.

  • Big sports week ahead

        SHEPHERDSVILLE – Following two weeks to get their feet under them, the high school fall sports campaign shifts into high gear this week with the first of the intra-county contests of the season.
        Perhaps the biggest of the fall will be on Monday of this week in girls’ soccer when North Bullitt travels to Mount Washington for a showdown with Bullitt East.

        SHELBYVILLE – For the second time in as many games, the Bullitt East Chargers rallied to take the lead late only to have an even later rally by the opposition decide the outcome of a close game.

  • Heat, Southern can’t bottle up...

        OKOLONA-- The only thing that could slow up the North Bullitt Eagles Friday night was the weather.
        With hot temperatures and high humidity, kickoff was delayed 20 minutes.
        Don’t worry.
        Head coach Adam Billings’ Eagles were ready when the whistle blew as they dispatched the host Southern Trojans 55-7.
        The Eagles would score on every possession and its only punt turned into a touchdown.

  • Cougars take a bite out of the...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE – For the second time in as many weeks, the tortoise got the win on Friday as the Bullitt Central Cougars went on the road and beat Fairdale 21-6.
        This was the second straight game in which the Cougars’ defense did not allow any points. The only score for Fairdale came just after Bullitt Central had gone up 21-0 midway through the third quarter when the Bulldogs returned the ensuing kick-off 83 yards for a touchdown.

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The long running rivalry for a Bullitt County football team outside of playing each other will be renewed on Friday when North Bullitt makes the short trip up Preston Highway to battle the Southern Trojans.

    Fans heading to this game should realize that the game will start at 7 p.m. in Okolona. Some Jefferson County teams have started kicking off games earlier than in the past.
