  • Tough draw leads to early exit...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - A 17-12 advantage in the first game was not enough for the Bullitt East Lady Chargers in the first-round of the Eighth Region Volleyball Tournament on Monday on their home court.

    North Oldham rallied from that deficit to win the first game 25-21 and then rolled to a 25-19 victory in the second game to advance to Wednesday’s semi-finals at Bullitt East.

  • Play-off brackets should be done...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - In a perfect world, the play-off pairings should have already been set for the 2008 season.

    Of course, we don’t live in a perfect world. Not even a perfect sports world.

    Sometimes the real world creeps into the sports world. That is certainly the case when it comes to the 2008 football season - on two fronts.

  • One and done for local boys...

    BARDSTOWN – What had been one of the best seasons in the program’s history came to an early end last week as the Bullitt East boys’ soccer team was knocked out of the Ninth District Soccer Tournament by Nelson County 3-2 in the semi-finals.

    Bullitt East had beaten Nelson County 4-2 during the regular season. Coach Mike Brangers’ team had beaten Nelson County in the district semi-finals each of the past two seasons and they were looking forward to another showdown with state-power Bethlehem in the championship game.

  • Manual is big hurdle for BE

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - In a season filled with tough opponents, the Bullitt East Chargers will face another this week when Class 6-A powerhouse Manual pays a visit to the Chargers’ Den.

    Of the eight teams that Bullitt East has played this season, only Butler has failed to win at least three games. In fact, only Butler and LaRue County have losing records.

  • Eagles secure ball, victory over...

    HEBRON ESTATES — When Dalton Cissell scored his third touchdown on the evening to put North Bullitt ahead 21-7 with four minutes to go, the Eagle fans were probably feeling pretty good.

    However, the district victory over visiting Marion County wasn’t secured until Duke Tomlinson’s back-to-back sacks of quarterback Eric Miles as time expired.

    The hard-fought 21-14 victory over Marion County guaranteed a home game in the first round of the playoffs on Friday, Nov. 14.

  • North Bullitt loses in regional...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - North Bullitt faced a tough draw in the 8th Region volleyball tournament at Bullitt East.

    The Eagles faced district winning Oldham County on Tuesday evening.

    The Lady Colonels defeated North Bullitt 25-14, 25-18.

    The semifinal matches on Wednesday will match North Oldham versus Anderson County at 6:30 p.m. and Oldham County against Shelby County at 7:45 p.m.

    The final at Bullitt East will be at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday night.

    The host team, Bullitt East, lost on Monday night to North Oldham.

  • Bullitt East starts fast in...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - The Bullitt East Chargers finished off its fifth straight district volleyball title in convincing form Thursday night.

    By virtue of winning the 27th District title, the Chargers will have the opportunity to host the Eighth Region tournament, starting on Monday in Mount Washington.

    The 25-11, 25-15 victory over North Bullitt should send Bullitt East into the regional tournament as one of the teams to beat.

    “We played well as a team,” said Charger coach Michelle Gajdik. “We were ready to play.”

  • Depleted Lady Eagles put up a...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON – It wasn’t exactly the way that first-year North Bullitt volleyball coach Jeanette Pryor had envisioned the last game of the season.

    Still, despite playing with a depleted roster in the first round of the Eighth Region Tournament at Bullitt East last Tuesday, Pryor was proud of the way her team played before falling 25-14, 25-18 to tournament favorite Oldham County.

  • Unbeaten North Oldham next for 7...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - ‘Time heals all wounds’ is the old saying.

    In football, it is more like ‘time heals bad football programs.’ Just ask Bullitt Central and North Oldham.

    When the two schools met for the first time on the football field in 2005, the two programs combined to win just three games. One of those few wins was North Oldham’s 21-14 victory over the Cougars.

  • BE back in action at LaRue

    HODGENVILLE - After a week to catch their breath and solidify some of the major changes that the offense has gone through over the past few weeks, the Bullitt East Chargers will be back in action on Friday against district rival LaRue County.

    This is an important game for the red and golf for a number of reasons, but the district standings are not among those things. Bullitt East has already wrapped up the number one seed for the Class 4-A play-offs while LaRue County is locked into the number four spot no matter what happens this week.
