  • NB, BC will battle again

     OKOLONA – For the second time in as many seasons the Girls’ 23rd District Soccer Champion will be from Bullitt County after North Bullitt and Bullitt Central won semi-final round matches on Monday at Moore High School.

    The two rivals were going to meet on Tuesday night in the championship game just as they did last year with North Bullitt winning. Both teams will advance to next week’s Sixth Region Tournament no matter the outcome on Tuesday.

  • Mistake free Eagles shoot down...

     HEBRON ESTATES – Getting a rare stop from the defense with less than five minutes remaining in the game, North Bullitt marched 45 yards for a touchdown with 19 seconds remaining to beat visiting Shelby County 48-42 on Friday.

         In a game in which there was 850 yards of total offense, both coaches knew that the team with the ball last would have the best shot at winning.

  • Coaching situation at Bullitt...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The news last week that Bullitt East boys’ basketball coach John Hunt had resigned from that post before ever coaching a game was a decision that was in everyone’s best interest.

         As is well documented now, Hunt was arrested last Tuesday in Mount Washington on charges of domestic violence and endangering the welfare of a minor. He pleaded not guilty the next day and then in a meeting with Bullitt East principal Willie Foster stepped down from the job that he had held since June.

  • Chargers Pierce the hearts of...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – When his head coach makes a suggestion about quarterback play Bullitt East junior Pierce Kelly listens.

         In the two weeks leading up to Friday’s annual rendition of The War, Charger head coach Darrell Vincent had been working with Kelly about reading the defense on the split-back veer instead of guessing at what the defense would do at the point of attack.

  • North hosts Shelby in key...

      HEBRON ESTATES – The North Bullitt Eagles won’t have much time to rebound from last week’s loss to Bullitt Central as they have an important date on Friday with visiting Shelby County.

    The Rockets are the defending Class 5-A, District 4 champions and managed to beat the Eagles 49-0. That Rockets team went on to post a 9-3 mark, eventually losing to Jeffersontown in the second round of the play-offs.

  • THE WAR: District, Bullitt Cup...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – No surprises. That is what Bullitt Central head coach Danny Leasor and Bullitt East mentor Darrell Vincent were both saying on Monday as they talked about Friday’s clash in Mount Washington between the two schools in the annual renewal of The War.

    Both coaches know exactly what the other will try to do. That doesn’t mean it won’t work or that a few wrinkles won’t catch the other off guard.

    Even fans know what to expect in Friday’s game.

  • Just one week remains in regular...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Once again this season, The Pioneer News will run the results from The Great Bullitt County Youth Football League in each Wednesday edition during the season.

    The statistics used each week are provided by the league and the individual teams. Questions about yardage, scoring and tackles should be directed to the league and those teams.

  • Despite losing a starter, East...

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – For the second time in three weeks, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers swept through their rivals from Bullitt Central in straight games, winning 25-9, 25-12, 25-15 on Monday night.

    It was a powerful performance for the Lady Chargers as they played their power game well, getting the ball down behind the hitting of senior Shelby Graham and junior Jennifer Cischke.

  • NB scores late to beat BC 5-4,...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Scoring three unanswered goals in the second half, the last coming with less than two minutes to play, the North Bullitt Eagles slipped past Bullitt Central on Wednesday by a 5-4 score.

    This contest highlighted two of the great turnaround seasons in local history. A year ago, the two teams did not beat anyone other than North Bullitt beating Bullitt Central twice. The second coming in the feed-in game of the 23rd District Tournament, a contest the green and gold won 2-0 before falling to Southern a day later.

  • BE CC squads in major meets

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – When the Bullitt East Lady Charger cross-country team competes in small ‘neighborhood’ races during the week, the results have been dominating.

    Already the season, the team has run in a meet where they posted a ‘perfect’ score of 15. Even in the medium sized Bernie Keene Invitational at Nelson County, the red and gold had five of the top six finishers.

    So, head coach Lenny Raley has loaded up on the big, Saturday meets with top-flight competition.
