     MOUNT WASHINGTON – There is never a bad time to play a good volleyball match. However, the great times to play a strong match are less common.

    The Bullitt East Lady Chargers accomplished all of that on Monday, taking advantage of playing on their home court to beat Whitefield Academy in three games in the first semi-final of the 24th District Tournament. The first game went down to the wire before Bullitt East got the key points and they then rolled to a 27-25, 25-19, 25-19 win.

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – Once again this season, The Pioneer news will run the results from the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League in each Wednesday edition during the season.

    The statistics used each week are provided to the newspaper by the league and the individual teams. Questions about yardage, scoring and tackles should be directed to the league and those teams.

  • No time for a let down by Central

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After three ‘big’ games in three weeks, two of them decided in overtime, the Bullitt Central Cougars will need to get up for another ‘big’ game this week when the team travels to Shelbyville for a Class 5-A, District 4 showdown with Shelby County.

    Bullitt Central and Shelby County are both undefeated in district play with the Cougars at 2-0 and the Rockets at 1-0 after beating North Bullitt 34-20 last Friday.

    For the first time since 1979, the Cougars can win a district title with a victory on Friday.

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – There is still an intra-county match on Thursday of this week when Bullitt East heads to North Bullitt for the final match of the regular season, but all three area teams are already looking ahead to district play which begins on Monday.

    In fact, the post-season will only last two days despite both the 23rd and 24th Districts having five teams. There will be three matches in both tournaments on Monday with championship action slated for Tuesday night.

  • Still a lot on the line in...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – There is no Bullitt Cup on the line Friday in the annual renewal of The Clash, but Bullitt East and North Bullitt still have a lot to play for in the 35th meeting between the two programs on the gridiron.

    As has been the case for the past decade, this will be a district game for both teams in Class 5-A. North Bullitt stands at 0-2 in the district heading into the final district game for the green and gold while Bullitt East is 0-1 in the district following last week’s overtime loss to Bullitt Central.

  • Taylor plays second day at state...

     BOWLING GREEN – Bullitt East sophomore Zach Taylor advanced to play on Day Two of the Boys’ Kentucky State Golf Tournament on Saturday, finishing up with one of the best finishes ever for a local player.

    Taylor played through the rain on Friday, finishing before play was suspended later in the afternoon with some players barely halfway through the round. After play resumed on Saturday morning, Taylor’s 78 was good enough to get him into the second round as one of the top-20 scores for players not on one of the top dozen teams.
