  • BE’s Murphy heading to state

     LOUISVILLE – ‘Steady’ was the name of the game on Monday for Bullitt East senior Mark Murphy in the Boys’ Region Five Golf Tournament at Seneca Golf Course.

    Murphy accomplished that goal, firing a 37 on the front nine and following that up with an identical 37 on the back nine to finish at 74 for a third place finish in the event. The score was easily enough for Murphy to qualify for the Kentucky State Golf Tournament next week at the Bowling Green Country Club.

  • North falls 3-1, but stays...

     OKOLONA – North Bullitt has gotten to the hurdle, now they just need to get over it.

    For the second time in less than a year, the Lady Eagles went toe-to-toe with Sixth Region power Mercy in girls’ soccer and each time the green and gold came away dreaming of what might have been.

  • Chargers make the most of...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON -- It was a beautiful homecoming evening.

    But when Kenneth Thornsberry returned to Mike Egan Field on the Bullitt East campus, the former Charger assistant coach didn’t get a warm homecoming welcome.

    Bullitt East enjoyed the homecoming festivities with a 65-12 victory over the Nelson County Cardinals.

    The Charger victory came in the first district game for each team.

  • THE GAME: Cougars score late to...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Over the summer, Bullitt Central head coach Matt Kuehn scrapped the plans he had coming out of spring drills and inserted junior Daylin Huff at quarterback, stating that he wanted the ball in the hands of his best athlete.

  • Mother Nature continues to smile...

      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.

  • Mercy Week! NB and BE to battle

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – The post-season hierarchy will come into focus in Sixth Region girls’ soccer action over the next week as both North Bullitt and Bullitt East will get a regular season shot at five-time defending champion Mercy.

    (Mercy actually has a longer regional title stretch than that, but the local teams only consider it over the five years since Bullitt County was added to the Sixth Region in 2012.)

  • Area cross-country teams are off...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – It has been a slow start to the high school cross-country season for area teams, but they have gotten in some action.

    Part of the problem was that the first big Saturday race of the season, on Labor Day weekend, was washed out in Elizabethtown when the races had to be cancelled when the city of Elizabethtown closed the park due to the heavy rains from the remnants of hurricane Harvey.

    Then last weekend, at the Fairgrounds Frenzy in Elizabethtown, Bullitt Central opted to run in the two junior-varsity races.

  • East set for Friday with...

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – It will be homecoming at Bullitt East on Friday in more ways than one as the Chargers look to start district play on a high note as they play host to longtime rival Nelson County.

    Yes, the Charger Nation will celebrate homecoming this week with the crowning of the Queen and King before the game in a ceremony set to start at 7 p.m.

  • Two teams looking for answers...

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – The first five weeks of the high school football season have really raised more questions than they have answered for local football teams.

    That is most certainly the case for both Bullitt Central and North Bullitt as they get ready to collide in the 42nd renewal of The Game on Friday in the Cougars’ lair.

    Last year, both teams came into the first district game of the season with 4-1 records and both coaches pretty much knew what they had.

  • North musters one good half...

     RADCLIFF – Held to just 111 yards of total offense, the North Bullitt Eagles didn’t have enough firepower to stay with Class 6-A North Hardin on Friday, falling 37-0.

    This was the first time in 30 games under head coach Adam Billings that the Eagles have been shut-out.

    The North Bullitt defense did keep the young team in the game in the first half. North Hardin had to settle for a field goal late in the first quarter and then added a touchdown five minutes before halftime for a 10-0 halftime edge.
