  • Bullitt East Archery Winning Big

      It has been quite a season up to this point for the Bullitt East archery program.

    At the start of the season, the team had 55 shooters.

    Before the Christmas break, the team competed in three events, winning at Thomas Nelson and at St. Gaberieal.

    After the break, the team really hits its stride, setting a new school record of 3,400 to win their own Invitational title.

    In addition, the team had six of the top ten individual finishers with the top male and female competitors.

  • Lady Eagles have just three...

       LOUISVILLE – The North Bullitt Lady Eagles might be the only team in the area that can say that they have an undefeated record playing Assumption High School.

    The Lady Eagles picked up a second win in as many seasons on Saturday as they defeated one of the area’s top programs 55-30 in the first game of the day at the Raatz Fence/O’Shea’s Basketball Classic at Mercy High School. The event is a one-day ‘showcase’ with some of the top teams in the area taking part.

  • Lady Chargers win two games in...

     LOUISVILLE – The Bullitt East Lady Chargers have played a lot of games in the Raatz Fence/O’Shea’s Basketball Classic over the years, but just one game each season.

    This year, the Lady Chargers got the honor of playing a pair of games in the two-day ‘showcase’ event at Mercy High School and the red and gold made the most of the opportunity, picking up a pair of impressive wins in an 18-hour time frame.

  • Lady Chargers come up just short...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – In what could be the first of four meetings between the two girls’ state basketball powers, Mercy jumped on top early and then held off a late Bullitt East rally to record a 64-53 victory on Tuesday.

         The win came in the regular season game that will be used to seed the upcoming 24th District Tournament that Mercy will be hosting in late February. A year ago, Bullitt East won the regular season meeting at Mercy, but then lost to the Jaguars in the championship game of the 24th District Tournament.

  • Girls' LIT play starts...

    LOUISVILLE--It will be Bullitt County Night as the Girls' Louisville Invitational Tournament kicks-off at Knight's Hall on the campus of Bellarmine University.

    For the first time ever, all three Bullitt County teams will be taking part in the mid-season event. Bullitt East has played in the event in the past, winning it 20 years ago, but this will be the first time ever for North Bullitt and Bullitt Central taking part.

  • Lady Cougars overpower Moore

    OKOLONA--Get in. Get out, Don't get anyone hurt.

    That was pretty much the bottom line for the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars on Tuesday as they traveled into Jefferson County for a 23rd District shutdown with Moore.

    Already nursing injuries, both long and short term, the Lady Cougars just needed to wrap up district play with a win to claim the number two spot in the first-round of the post-season.

    Coach Kyle Roach's team did that, jumping out to a 19-2 lead in the first quarter and then rolling to a 64-24 victory.

  • Cougars hold on late, beat...

     OKOLONA – Fortunately for the Bullitt Central Cougars, free throw shooting is only a part of being a successful basketball team.

         That was obvious on Tuesday night as the maroon and gray struggled mightily at the charity stripe, but still managing to pick-up an important win as they slipped past Moore 46-39.

  • Lady Eagles look to learn even...

    OKOLONA -- Coaches can do all the talking they want. Their players normally understand who they are playing on any given night.

  • Eagles struggle and Trojans take...

    OKOLONA -- For the North Bullitt Eagles to be successful, the players have to share the ball.

  • Farner inducted into state...

     LOUISVILLE - On Saturday, long-time Pioneer News Sports Editor Mike Farner was inducted into the Kentucky High School Baseball Coaches’ Association Hall of Fame Class of 2014.

    In a luncheon that was part of the group’s winter convention, Farner was inducted along with six others into the Hall of Fame. The KHSBCA has had a Hall of Fame class every year since 1997, honoring coaches, umpires, college coaches and scouts as well as media members.
