        SHEPHERDSVILLE – The high school football play-offs locally will have a somewhat different look starting on Friday as the three area teams will be competing with teams from far outside of the Jefferson County zip codes for the first time in a number of years.
        Last year, no area team traveled any further from home than Fairdale and even in the second round North Bullitt only had to travel to Fern Creek.

        LOUISVILLE – Competing against some of the best runners in the state, a total of four Bullitt County competitors earned spots on Saturday at the Class 3-A, Region 3 Cross-Country Championships this coming Saturday at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington.
        While none of the three boys’ and three girls’ squads advanced to Lexington, something the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars had done last year, it was still a strong showing. All four runners advanced as individuals and all four are underclassmen.

  • NB second, BC third, East fourth...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE – Now I know how people felt in the 1930s waiting for election results, sitting and waiting for the ticker-tape machine to slowly click off the results.
        It was that way Friday night for me and North Bullitt and Bullitt Central football coaches as they sat and stared at their Iphones or Ipads waiting for the results from area football games to flash on the screen.

  • Football tie-breaker up in the...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- After the final three Class 5-A, Region 3 games were played last Friday, the three Bullitt County teams were all tied at 3-2 for the second, third and fourth-place spots for the play-offs which start next Friday throughout Kentucky.

    Unfortunately, the tie won’t be broken until late on Friday when results from other games across the state are tabulated.

    The tie-breaking system takes the number of wins of teams that the squads involved in the tie have beaten during the season.

     BARDSTOWN – Quick, efficient and to the point.

    The Bullitt Central Cougars took care of business in meticulous fashion on Friday, running through a struggling Nelson County team to the tune of a 53-7 victory.

    With the win, in the final district game of the season, the Cougars wrapped a berth in the Class 5-A play-offs. Bullitt Central finished tied for second in Region 3 along with their two county rivals, North Bullitt and Bullitt East, with 3-2 records.

  • NB again falls a conversion...

     PEWEE VALLEY – The battle for the top spot in Class 5-A, District 3 lived up to all the hype on Friday before a failed two-point conversion left South Oldham with a 35-34 victory over North Bullitt.

    This was the second straight year that the final district game of the season matched these two teams for the top spot. It was winner take all for the number one seed in the post-season. With the win, the Dragons repeat as district champions.

  • BE pulls away late to secure a...

     BUCKNER -- It was just a little bit different on Thursday for the Bullitt East Chargers.

    Its game against Oldham County was a night earlier.

    And, due to senior activities on the field, warmups had to be moved to a practice field.

    Plus, most of the game was played in a steady rain.

    But, despite all the hurdles, coach Mark Sander’s Chargers fared quite well in its season finale.

    Bullitt East had over 500 yards of total offense en route to its 28-7 victory.
