  • Football kicks-off this weekend

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Friday Night Lights will kick off with a full slate of three games this weekend for the area high school teams.

    The only team playing at home is Bullitt East and they will play host to Butler on Friday at 7:30 p.m. The Bears posted a 4-7 record a year ago, losing to Lexington Lafayette in the first-round of the Class 6-A play-offs. Butler replaces Eastern, the team that Bullitt East opened with each of the two previous seasons.

  • Youth football set to start 46th...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Sometimes change is good, but there are also times where staying the course is the best option.

    That is the way that long-time Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League president Joe Downs sees the 2017 campaign. Major changes have been put on the back burner while small tweaks in what was working have moved forward.

    This is Downs’ 13th year at the helm of the county-wide league that has nine individual programs that conduct not only football games, but also oversee cheerleading and dance teams.

  • Bullitt Cup Saturday

     MOUNT WASHINGTON -- While the regular season started on Monday, the first ‘big’ event for the three area boy’s soccer teams comes on Saturday with the revival of the Bullitt Cup.

    The area teams will compete against each other for the Bullitt Cup and there will be an All-Tournament team selected.

    Action will start at 8 a.m. at Bullitt East with the Chargers taking on North Bullitt. At 10 a.m. Bullitt Central will play Bullitt East and then the final game at noon will have North Bullitt and Bullitt Central squaring off.

  • North looking to continue...

     HEBRON ESTATES – After two seasons of getting too -- and winning -- post-season games, North Bullitt head coach Adam Billings has the program heading in the right direction.

    The coach doesn’t see any reason why that success should not continue this fall, but he does admit that there will be a little bit of a learning curve as the program has just six seniors and several of them are new to football.

  • A better start would greatly...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON – A year ago, the Bullitt East Chargers gave up 196 points in losing the first four games of the regular season.

    Unfortunately, that pretty much set the tone for the season, the first under head coach Mark Sander. The Chargers did go on to post three victories (a fourth win later had to be forfeited) and they did reach the play-offs, but lost the opening round game 32-13 to Madison Central.

    That left the program with a final 3-8 record.

  • Talent present at BC, but Kuehn...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – With winning records each of the past three seasons, two Bullitt Cup titles in the same span as well as two post-season wins, the Bullitt Central football program has succeeded recently despite having three different head coaches over that span.

    Now, the program is stable at the top with the return of head coach Matt Kuehn for a second season. The coach also feels that there is enough talent to add to the recent success story – barely.

  • 58th Annual James/O'Connor...

     SALEM, Ind. – The 58th running of one of the most historic open wheel races in the nation is set to take place at Salem Speedway Fueled by the Hoosier Lottery on Saturday night, as the USAC Silver Crown Champ Car Series visits the super-fast high banks for the Discover Scott County Joe James/Pat O’Connor Memorial presented by the Kentuckiana Ford Dealers.

  • Backyard basketball for a good...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON -- Now in its 13th year, the Matt Allen Scholarship program hands out awards each summer to college-bound seniors from all three Bullitt County high schools.

    Recently, the program awarded ten scholarships. The recipients included Morgan Gentry (Bullitt East), Savannah Glass (Bullitt East), Sydney Hill (Bullitt East), Kelsin Kemble (Bullitt Central), Sarah Lyons (Bullitt Central), Emma Pressley (Bullitt East),  Rebecca Price (Bullitt Central), Hannah Robinson (North Bullitt), Zachary Taylor (Bullitt East) and Rebecca Vogt (North Bullitt).

  • Bullitt Central finishes sixth...

     ORLANDO, FLORIDA – Bullitt Central capped off its most successful archery season ever recently with a sixth place finish overall in the NASP World Championships at the Orange County Convention Center.

    Bullitt East also did well in the high school competition, finishing 16th overall.

    The event included 3,400 archers in the 8th annual bulls-eye competition and another 1,200 students in the newer International Bowhunting Organizations 3D Challenge.

  • Early instruction at Cougar...

     With the young league and high school football teams already practicing for the upcoming seasons, a handful of local players got in some exact work recently when they took part in the Bullitt Central Cougar Football Camp.

    This was the second year for the camp under Bullitt Central head coach Matt Kuehn.

    There was no contact at this camp, but the young players got some instruction in the fundamentals of the sport as well as competing against one another in some punt, pass and kick competitions.
