  • Cougars reverse the script, shut...

        STANFORD, KY. – What a difference a year makes.
        A season after the Bullitt Central defense averaged giving up 30 points a game and allowed at least 18 points in ten of the 11 games, the Cougars started 2016 with a shut-out on Friday, beating Henry County 14-0 in the PBK Bank Death Valley Bowl at Lincoln County High School.
        First-year head coach Matt Kuehn, who was the defensive coordinator last season when the focus was on offense, was pleased with the opening win.

  • Abnee steps in and leads Eagles...

        HEBRON ESTATES -- Look past the sweating brow of North Bullitt head football coach Adam Billings and you will see a smile.
        Coaches don’t always give glowing praise of their teams after the opening game.
        However, after watching his North Bullitt Eagles shut out Woodford County 20-0, Billings had a big smile.
        “I feel pretty good tonight,” Billings said as his Eagles controlled the contest after taking a 7-0 halftime lead.

  • Week one in the books for the...

     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.

  • A new era in Charger football...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – It will be the dawn of a new era in Bullitt East football on Friday when first-year head coach Mark Sander leads his team onto the field at home against Eastern High School.

  • New coach means new look for ‘16...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Last season, the Bullitt Central Cougars filled the Friday night skies with footballs led by quarterback Cameron Dukes and wide receiver Chase Craddock.

    The year before that, the maroon and gray put the ball in the hands of running back Trevor Carnell and let him carry the load.

  • McDonald makes it four Chargers...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON – It’s all about team.
        Having good teammates paid big dividends for Bullitt East baseball standout Zach McDonald this summer when he received and accepted an offer to continue his diamond career at Brescia University in Owensboro.
        McDonald becomes the fourth, and final, Charger player to sign with Bearcats’ head coach Andrew Dickson.

  • BC’s youth hoping to learn from...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE – No matter how you look at it, Bullitt Central’s boys’ soccer program had a breakout season in 2015.
        For the first time ever, the team won a 23rd District title, beating Southern 1-0 on penalty kicks, and then the Cougars beat Bullitt East 4-3 for the first regional win in program history. The run didn’t end until a 3-0 loss to Fairdale on the artificial turf at Mercy High School in the Sixth Region semi-finals.

  • Eagles look for rise to top of...

        HEBRON ESTATES – North Bullitt boys’ soccer coach Eddie Fightmaster wants more.
        The second year Eagle head coach wants more players.
        Heading into Monday’s season-opener against DeSales, North Bullitt has just 20 players in the program. With one of those players being an eighth-grader, that leaves just 19 players for varsity contests.
        With a better than average season a year ago and stability at the top, the coach thought his numbers would be improved.

  • Top end is strong, but Eagles...

     HEBRON ESTATES – After going from 1-10 to 9-3 in the first year under head coach Adam Billings, it might have seemed that football would be king at North Bullitt.

    But, heading into his second season, Billings seems to be doing more rebuilding that he did when he arrived. The entire program has just 55 players and on a tough Friday night Billings doesn’t expect to use more than 20 to 22 players.

  • 2016-17 deer season looks...

     FRANKFORT – Many archery hunters in Kentucky will spend the last long weekend of summer getting an early jump on fall.

    Kentucky’s 2016-17 deer season kicks off the first Saturday in September with the start of the 136-day archery season. Anticipation has been building for months.

    “Everything right now points toward another good season,” said Gabe Jenkins, deer program coordinator for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources.
