  • Eagles' top job Friday is...

    HEBRON ESTATES – When the 2008 season began, Valley senior Gerwan Brewer was expected to be one of the area’s top running backs.

    As it has turned out, Brewer has done a lot of running this season, but much of it has come from the quarterback spot. The 5-8, 165-pound senior, who takes more than half of his team’s snaps at quarterback, rushed for just about half of the Vikings’ total rushing yards during the regular season, totaling 1,341 yards of the 2,753 that Valley accumulated this season.

  • Trio of local runners head to...

    LOUISVILLE - Just about every emotion imaginable was in play on Saturday from jubilation to frustration as local cross-country programs took part in regional meets at two different locations in Jefferson County.

    At the Class AAA meet at the old River Road Country Club, Bullitt Central had good news as freshman Rachel Thacker ran her best time of the season to become the first runner from the school to advance to the Kentucky State Championships in at least 15 years.

  • Quick momentum switch propels...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON – A quick turn of events midway through the first quarter paid long-term dividends for the Bullitt East Chargers on Friday as they whipped visiting Marion County 35-7 in the second round of the Class 4-A play-offs.

    Twice in the opening moments of the game the Knights marched inside the Bullitt East 40 yard line. The second time, the visitors got as deep as the 17-yard line. A third down pass into the endzone was just inches long and on fourth down Bullitt East senior Ricky Gray knocked down a pass at the goal line.

  • THE CIVIL WAR: East and North...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON -- The game that everyone has secretly been waiting for and whispering about will finally arrive on Friday when Bullitt East and North Bullitt collide in the biggest game in Bullitt County football history.

    This will be like Christmas morning for local football fans as the two rivals meet as late in the Class 4-A play-offs as is possible. The two played last year in the post-season, but that came in the first-round. Now, the winner advances to the semi-finals with a shot at playing for a state championship within reach.

  • Unheralded Eagles fly high in...

    HEBRON ESTATES - When Western Warrior coaches were looking at game film to scout the North Bullitt Eagles, they probably didn’t focus on a guy named Travis Ridley flying around in the defensive secondary.

    And they probably didn’t see James Whitfill streaking across the field for a touchdown reception or Dalton Hadley coming into the game to spark a key scoring drive.

    And the coaches never imagined the golden-shoed David Elmore would be the leading Eagle rusher.

  • Chargers score early, often in...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - Everything went according to plan on Friday for the Bullitt East Chargers as the red and gold opened the Class 4-A play-offs with a 63-6 victory over Atherton.

    The game was not expected to be close and it certainly wasn’t as the Chargers were up 50-0 at halftime. The running clock in the second half kept the offense to a minimum and Atherton did not score until the final play of the game.

  • Slow start can't diminish...

    RICHMOND - If there was one chink in the armor of the Bullitt Central Cougars during a record-breaking 2008 season, it was a propensity for starting slow.

    More often than not, the Cougars managed to overcome that in the regular season en route to winning eight of 10 contests.

    But that is a dangerous game to play in the post-season. The Cougars learned that lesson on Friday as their season came to an end with a 38-26 loss to Madison Central in the first round of the Class 6-A play-offs.

  • State Cross-Country meet is...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - A bitterly cold and rainy day made it a learning experience for all three young Bullitt County runners in Saturday’s Kentucky State Cross-Country Championships at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington.

    It was the first trip to the State Championships for all three of the runners, two of whom are not even in high school yet.

  • Some of the area's top...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - While many are still involved with football, basketball will be the name of the game this weekend when the 2008 Cougarama is held at Bullitt Central.

    ‘Kentucky’s Best Preseason Event’ will once again have some of the best teams in the area converging on Bullitt Central for two days filled with basketball scrimmages.

    Basketball’s regular season starts on the Monday after Thanksgiving.
