  • Poppell third; BE and BC runners...

     LOUISVILLE – Cold and windy conditions made the going tough on Saturday at the Class 3-A, Region 3 Cross-Country Championships at E.P. Tom Sawyer State Park in eastern Jefferson County.

    Still, a number of Bullitt County runners fought through the conditions and advanced to the Kentucky State Cross-Country Championships at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington on Saturday.

  • Forget '13', it was...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The third time was definitely not the charm on Friday for the Bullitt Central Cougars.

         Forced into overtime for the third time this season, all at home, the maroon and gray were beaten by South Oldham 49-42 in three overtimes in the final regular season game for both teams this season.

  • BE rallies in fourth for third...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON – Breaking in a new starting quarterback on the final night of the regular season is never a good thing.

         Just ask Bullitt East head coach Darrell Vincent.

         With senior Pierce Kelly out for one game after getting injured the previous week in the win over Shelby County, the Chargers, who already lost Konner Polson for the season with a broken collarbone, inserted junior Matthew Snawder on Thursday night for a battle against Fairdale.

  • Mercy ends Lady Eagles'...

     VALLEY STATIION – Nobody likes to lose the final match of the regular season, especially when it comes on the big stage of a regional tournament.

         At times, the feelings are made worse if you are not competitive.

         However, for the North Bullitt volleyball program, the final match of the 2014 season will be one that they will never forget even if they did lose 25-6, 25-12, 25-3.

  • Meade arrives late scores early...

     HEBRON ESTATES -- It may have been the appropriate way to wind up the 2014 regular season for the North Bullitt Eagles.

  • Bullitt County Night at regional...

     HIGHVIEW – It was a historic night for Bullitt County sports on Wednesday as all three local soccer programs played in the semi-finals of the Girls’ Sixth Region Tournament at Mercy High School.

    While all three teams had made the regional tournament the year before, this was the first time all three won opening round games. In fact, it is the first time in any sport that all three Bullitt County schools have reached such a lofty spot in the post-season at the same time.

  • Cross-country post-season starts...

     BARDSTOWN – In the final tune-up for all three programs before the Region 3 meet this Saturday, the area cross-country teams competed in the Mid-Kentucky Athletic Conference Meet at the Bluegrass Expo Center.

    The day belonged to Bullitt East as they won both the boys’ and the girls’ titles while in addition Lady Charger junior Sierra Poppell continued her strong season by winning the girls’ race by over a minute. Poppell has moved into the top-10 runners across the state in Class 3-A this season.

  • Final week of the regular season...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – With all the regular season district play out of the way, the three area football teams now know the path ahead of them in the Class 5-A play-offs.

    First, the teams get a chance to regroup and fix any late problems with one last regular season contest this week. What works out best is that all three teams will be at home for those games so they can celebrate Senior Night in style.

  • North advances, but BE and BC...

      HEBRON ESTATES – For the second time in three seasons, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles advanced to the semi-finals of the Sixth Region Volleyball Tournament, but the reward is a daunting one.

    After winning the 24th District title a week earlier, coach Cecilia Boston’s team was rewarded with a home match on Monday against Doss, a team they had defeated during the regular season. The Lady Dragons put up a fight, but North Bullitt won 25-20, 25-18, 25-19.

  • Mercy gets past East...again

     HIGHVIEW - Mercy Academy is where Bullitt East soccer coach Steve Gentry wants to program to be.

    However, that doesn’t come without a lot of work.

    For yet another season, the Mercy Jaguars ended the post-season for the Lady Chargers with a 3-0 victory in the Sixth Region title game on Saturday evening.

    “I thought we came out a little flat tonight,” said Gentry. “I find that hard to believe you come out flat in a regional final but I think you have to give Mercy a lot of credit for that.”
