  • Cougars make the final stand to...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE – On his coaches’ board on Friday, Bullitt Central head coach Matt Kuehn in big letters wrote ‘FINISH’.
        Actually, the coach was referring more to his offense, but it was his defense that went wire-to-wire on Friday including an interception at the 11-yard line with 1:56 remaining in the game by sophomore Daylin Huff that capped a 9-7 victory for the Cougars in the 28th annual renewal of ‘The War’ against Bullitt East.

  • THE WAR!! - Again! So much on...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – There will be no shortage of important things to play for on Friday when Bullitt East rolls into Shepherdsville for the 28th renewal with Bullitt Central of The War.

    Of course, the simple fact that it is Bullitt East against Bullitt Central will bring emotions boiling to the surface. The Chargers have a 19-8 lead in the series. During one stretch, the red and gold won ten straight meetings. Now, over the past nine seasons, the Chargers have only a 5-4 edge.

  • NB set for homecoming Friday

     HEBRON ESTATES – It will be Football Homecoming 2016 at North Bullitt on Friday as the Eagles play host to Class 5-A, District 3 rival Oldham County.

    Every high school football coach wants his plays to enjoy the events leading up to Friday night, but they all worry that a lack of focus can derail big things.

    North Bullitt head coach Adam Billings said he just had one simple message for his team on that topic early this week.

  • Youth football squads pass...

     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.

  • Strategies for taking a youth...

     FRANKFORT - Kentucky offers youth hunters an assortment of special seasons in the fall and winter months.

    In the mind of a young hunter making the transition from observer to participant, these opportunities to hunt deer, elk, furbearers, small game and waterfowl are milestones never to be forgotten. As such, adult mentors know it falls on their shoulders to deliver a safe and enjoyable experience that leaves their young companion wanting to return to the field another day. It can be a lot of pressure.

  • BE’s football woes not deadly

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The news last week that Bullitt East had self-reported itself to the Kentucky High School Athletic Association didn’t really come as a huge surprise.

    The whirlwind romance of getting senior soccer player Christian Foster into uniform and onto the field was quick. Many wondered aloud if all the details had been worked out.

    Obviously, it worked on the field as in her first game Foster kicked eight extra points in eight tries. She also recovered an on-sides kick.

  • Lady Chargers get the best of...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Getting four goals from senior Christian Foster, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers had no trouble on Tuesday turning back Bullitt Central 9-0 in girls’ soccer action.

    Foster, who by the end of the week had scored 42 goals in 16 games, was all over the field a night after scoring three times in a 4-3 loss to district rival Mercy.

  • BE’s Battistotti takes fifth at...

     FORT KNOX – Bullitt East senior Margherita Battistotti, a foreign exchange student from Italy, fired an 86 in wet conditions on Monday to finish fifth in the Girls’ Region Three Tournament at Lindsey Golf Course located at Fort Knox.

    That finish earned Battistotti a spot in next week’s Kentucky State Tournament on Tuesday and Wednesday at the Bowling Green Country Club. Battistotti is the first Bullitt East female golfer to reach the state tournament since Olivia Pruitt in 2013.

  • Regional golf action set for...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE – Golf will grab center stage this week as the first fall sport to move into the post-season enters regional play on Monday and Tuesday.
        All of the Bullitt County programs that will have teams taking part will be playing at Lindsay Golf Course which is located at Fort Knox.

  • Thank goodness for the ‘mercy’...

        BARDSTOWN -- The only group that may have been unhappy with Bullitt East’s 69-0 victory over the Nelson County Cardinals was the school’s cheerleading team.
        The score meant that the cheer squad had to do 376 jumping jacks -- one for each point scored by the Chargers.
        On the field, head coach Mark Sander has been getting the feeling that his young squad and the new coaching staff are starting to put it all together.
