  • Friday Night Lights

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The high school football season will get off the ground with a bang on Friday as both North Bullitt and Bullitt East head into battle against tough foes.

         North Bullitt will be at home on Friday against Franklin County, a team that has lost just one regular season game over the last three seasons. The Flyer went 11-2 last season including a season-opening 52-14 win over the Eagles in Frankfort.

  • New coach, new attitude for NB...

    HEBRON ESTATES – After losing in the Sixth Region semi-finals each of the past two seasons, after winning 23rd District titles, the North Bullitt Lady Eagle soccer program is once again looking to move to the top of the area programs.

         To do that, the green and gold went out and found a new coach, Amber Mink, who joins the program after coaching at Butler the past three seasons.

  • BC volleyball looking for better...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – Having talent in a volleyball program is one thing.

         Having players who believe they are talented is even more important.

         First-year Bullitt Central head coach Karen Vogt feels that a big boost of self-confidence will go further than anything she does with her team this fall as she takes over a program that has struggled to maintain consistency.

  • Eagles to overcome a numbers...

    HEBRON ESTATES – If Class 5-A football teams in Kentucky could get by with a core group of a dozen players, the North Bullitt Eagles would be ready for a big season.

         Unfortunately, big school football in the area normally requires at least twice as many players ready to step into important roles for success. It helps if those key players are seniors and juniors.

  • Perfect weather conditions...

     FRANKFORT, Ky. – The diminishing daylight hours, foggy mornings and slightly different angle of the daytime sun informs hunters the best time of year is upon us.

    Dove season opens on Labor Day, Mon., Sept. 1 statewide. This season, hunters have an additional 20 days to pursue doves, with most of those days scheduled for the last two segments of the season. The opening segment of dove season closes Oct. 26. Dove season opens again Nov. 27 and closes Dec. 7. The third segment opens Dec. 20 and closes Jan. 11, 2015.

  • Lady Charger golf rebuilding;...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After years of being one of the better girls’ golf teams in the area, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers are going through a transition stage this year.

    That transition includes both players and at coach.

    After seven years as the head coach, Andy Oder stepped down to spend more time working with youth golf in the area as well as his job as Executive 

    Director of the Kentucky Golf Coaches’ Association.

  • Youth football made the right...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Change is never easy, even when it is obviously necessary.

    That is where the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League has found itself in recent years. From all sides the group was getting signals that it needed to move more toward a ‘middle school’ type model for their oldest age division.

  • BE V-ball ready for 6th Region...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – After winning a program best 28 games last season but then struggling in the post-season, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers feel that they have some unfinished business for this volleyball season.

    Veteran coach Ed Fisher feels that he has the power to at least get multiple chances at Mercy this fall. That would mean meeting up with the state and national powers in the 24th District final and the Sixth Region final.

  • Youth football has a major new...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Addition by subtraction.

    The Greater Bullitt County Football League, making fundamental changes for the first time since the creation of the Little Bullitts age group and the addition of the Pleasant Grove program more than 15 years ago, will work to make the ‘A’ Division a more competitive group this fall by realigning that age group into six teams instead of the nine programs that will continue to make up the other three age divisions.

  • Charger boys look to break...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Over the past two seasons, since his team has moved into the 24th District, veteran Bullitt East boys’ coach Mike Brangers has been relatively pleased with the team’s play during the regular season.

         It has been in the post-season where the red and gold have struggled. In the two seasons under the new alignment, the Chargers have yet to advance out of district play to the Sixth Region Tournament, despite being competitive.
