  • Local golf teams seek success

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Young and talented.

         Those are two words that any high school coach loves to utter and that phrase fits in perfectly with the Bullitt East boys’ golf program as they head into the 2014 season.

         On a team that has only one senior, Hunter Simmons, the Chargers are ready to make some noise this fall, especially when the Region 3 Tournament rolls around on Sept. 30 at the Elizabethtown Country Club.

     TAYLORSVILLE – If the Spencer County Lady Bears’ basketball program is to take the next step toward competing for district and regional titles, it may require stepping back to the basics of the game.

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The vacation is over. Like all of us, that is a sad thing to have to say. It’s like the day after Christmas.

  • Last Camps of Summer

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Before school started today in Bullitt County there was a rush to get in the last of the summer youth camps that have become the staple for area families.

    At Zoneton Middle School, boys’ basketball coach Casey Bannon held her Sixth Annual Timberwolf Camp and had a strong turnout.

  • BC’s Humphrey to play basketball...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Making the most of an open gym try-out late in the spring, Bullitt Central senior Zack Humphrey earned an invitation to join the program at Spalding University.

    As Humphrey recalled, it didn’t take much selling from Golden Eagle head coach Kevin Gray to get Humphrey to stay close to home for his college basketball.

    Of course, Humphrey didn’t mention to Gray that he was planning at attending the Louisville-area college if basketball was involved or not.
