     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.

  • Lady Chargers hit with injuries

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The start of the high school basketball season is still three weeks away, but it has already been a trying one for the Bullitt East Lady Chargers.

    Expected to be one of the top teams in the state as well as the top challenger to defending state champion Butler in the always-tough Sixth Region, the Lady Chargers have already lost a pair of key cogs to season-ending knee injuries.

  • National early signing day set...

     The first day of the early signing period for NCAA Division I and II programs is set to start on Wednesday and will continue through next Wednesday.

    Locally, a number of local athletes are expected to be signing early on Wednesday, including three for Bullitt East and one from North Bullitt.

  • Chargers find no magic on road...

        BEREA – An up and down season for the Bullitt East Chargers ended on a down note on Friday as the 2016 came to a close with a 32-13 loss to Madison Southern in the first round of the Class 5-A, Region 3 bracket.
        With the win, Madison Southern advances to the second round where they will host North Bullitt, a 49-28 winner over Montgomery County.
        Bullitt East’s season ends with a 3-8 record and a third straight season with a first-round loss in the post-season.

  • Eagles advance after near...

        HEBRON ESTATES -- With a bye week following a pair of one-point losses, North Bullitt head coach Adam Billings decided to give his Eagles a little time off.
        In the first round of the Class 5A playoffs on Friday, it looked like Billings’ tactic was perfect.
        With a near perfect performance by quarterback Andrew Brown, North Bullitt was in control the entire way en route to a 49-28 victory over Montgomery County.

  • Cougars play on after OT victory

        LAWRENCEBURG – Despite squandering a 21-point cushion in the first half and a 14-point lead in the third quarter, Bullitt Central made the most of overtime on Friday, scoring on the second play and then letting the defense do the rest as the Cougars survived at Anderson County 31-24.

        SHEPHERDSVILLE – I’ll be the first to admit that no Bullitt County football team has really jumped up and grabbed the imagination of their fan bases this fall.

         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.

        SHEPHERDSVILLE – The high school football play-offs locally will have a somewhat different look starting on Friday as the three area teams will be competing with teams from far outside of the Jefferson County zip codes for the first time in a number of years.
        Last year, no area team traveled any further from home than Fairdale and even in the second round North Bullitt only had to travel to Fern Creek.

  • Four local runners headed to...

        LOUISVILLE – Competing against some of the best runners in the state, a total of four Bullitt County competitors earned spots on Saturday at the Class 3-A, Region 3 Cross-Country Championships this coming Saturday at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington.
        While none of the three boys’ and three girls’ squads advanced to Lexington, something the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars had done last year, it was still a strong showing. All four runners advanced as individuals and all four are underclassmen.
