  • Tracks, rest room will be re-bid...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Scott Kremer keeps looking for a nugget of good news to bring to the Bullitt County Public School Board.

    The owner of Studio Kremer Architects won’t get that opportunity for at least the next several months.

    Kremer was commissioned to lead a project that would improve track and field conditions at each of the high schools.

    As part of that project, North Bullitt High School was seeking to have rest room renovations at the football field.

  • Lady Charger volleyball looking...

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East volleyball program is thinking big for the 2015 season – really big.

    With the possibility of putting three players on the court who stand 6-feet tall or taller, the Lady Chargers will be as big as any team veteran head coach Ed Fisher has ever had.

  • Chargers hope to bounce back...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON –Coming off a season in which the team won just four games, the lowest total in a dozen years under head coach Mike Brangers, the Bullitt East Chargers are looking to get back to a winning formula this year.

    The team has nine seniors and Brangers is looking for an improved output from his team…if it can stay healthy. It was injuries that took the starch out of the team in 2014.

  • Fightmaster takes over at the...

     HEBRON ESTATES –Playing for a banner.

    That is the way that first-year North Bullitt boys’ soccer coach Eddie Fightmaster describes things as the green and gold look to overcome what was a trying season in 2015.

  • Jamison looking to build a...

      SHEPHERDSVILLE –’Winning’ and ‘soccer’ are not two words that appear in the same sentence very often when it comes to the Bullittt Centrla boys’ program.

    A year ago the Cougars won just four games and two of those wins came against Evangel. The best news was that the Cougars did win a post-season game, but that was only after they had the number four seed and beat fifth-seeded Evangel in the opening game of the 24th District Tournament.

  • No major changes for the long-...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- There is nothing wrong with the status quo.

    Following a year in which the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League saw one of its biggest changes of the past decade (shifting the ‘A’ Division from nine teams to six and making it more along the lines of middle school football), the league is pretty much operating without change on the eve of the start of the season Saturday.

  • BE’s Davenport follows baseball...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON –Life is good when the college that you want to attend, wants you.

    That was the story earlier this summer for Bullitt East senior pitcher Hayden Davenport when Spalding University head coach Jeremy Sleetlinger came calling. The Golden Eagles were exactly the school that Davenport was looking to attend.

    That desire had been present since former Bullitt East teammate Jacob Woodruff joined the Spalding program two years ago. A year ago, Bullitt East pitcher Chase Patton also joined the Golden Eagles’ program.

  • Truck, tractor pulling series at...

     CLERMONT -- It’s time for the big trucks to return to the Bullitt County Fairgrounds.

    The Battle of the Bluegrass pulling series will again bring the big machines to the fairgrounds on Saturday, Aug. 8.

    Despite a hot and humid night last year, a big crowd showed up and were treated at a great evening.

    Tom McConnell and Kevin Fulks own the regional truck and tractor pulling series which competes from spring through fall.

    A number of the events are televised by NBC Sports.

  • Fall sports previews to start in...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Summer is over!

    I can now make that official statement as I begin to work on previews for all the fall sports teams. The previews will start in Monday’s edition and that will allow basically four issues for golf, soccer, volleyball and football previews.

    I really can’t give you any type of order in which they will run other than to say that football previews won’t run until the week of Aug. 17.

  • East golfers make run at own...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Finishing with four scores in the 70s normally means great things during a high school golf match.

    While certainly not disappointed with the opening results of the seasons, the Bullitt East Chargers found they still have some work to do this season after shooting an impressive 303 in The Charger Open Presented by Schmid Funeral Home only to finish 11 strokes behind Franklin County for the top spot overall.
