  • BE finishes strong at Tiger Run

     LOUISVILLE – The first major cross-country event of the season showed that Bullitt East will be a power in both boys’ and girls’ action even with the move to Class AAA this season.

  • BC's quick start takes the...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Scoring on each of its first two possessions and four of the first five times it had the ball in the game, the Bullitt Central Cougars got the 2013 season off to a strong start as they rolled past visiting Fairdale 44-0 on Friday.

         Bullitt Central had 430 yards of total offense and turned the ball over only once as they defeated a Fairdale team that was also playing for the first time this season. This was the first meeting between the two teams during the regular season in over 15 years.

  • Late Eagle drive ends at 6-yard...

     HEBRON ESTATES – After a horrible start to the 2013 season, the North Bullitt Eagles returned home for week two of action and showed some improvements in key areas.

         Unfortunately, where the green and gold could not show a plus was in the win column as the team fell to Southern 13-8. It was the first win for the Trojans over their county line rivals since 2004, although the two teams have not met every year. North Bullitt had won the last two meetings.

  • WHAT A GAME... East wins...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Forget the 126 points.

         Never mind the nearly 1,200 total yards between the two teams.

         And you might even overlook the 19 touchdowns scored.

         The single-most important play in a night of many, many big plays may have come with 33 seconds remaining.

         With Bullitt East leading 67-59, yes, 67-59, Nelson County had one final chance to score and force overtime.

  • 2013 Bullitt Central Football...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After posting winning records four of the past five seasons, but winning just one game in the post-season, the Bullitt Central Cougars are looking to take another step forward this fall.

         With the return of leading rusher Trevor Carnell, who had a school record 1,946 yards as a sophomore last season, along with a strong junior class, the maroon and gray appear set to make more noise in 2013.

  • Youth teams are ready for a...

  • Shelby wins BE golf event

  • A night at home for all of the...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Footballs will be flying all over Bullitt County on Friday night as all three of the local high school teams will be playing at home.

         This will be the first game of the season for Bullitt Central and they will be taking on Fairdale. Bullitt East will try to make it two in a row as they play host to long-time rival Nelson County while North Bullitt will look to bounce back from a poor performance as they will take on Southern.

  • Bullitt East gets challenged,...

     HEBRON ESTATES – The Bullitt East Chargers won the Bullitt Cup on Saturday, beating their two county rivals in boys’ soccer.

         That is no surprise as Bullitt East has never lost a game in the Bullitt Cup. This year, the red and gold beat North Bullitt 3-1 in the first game and then turned right around and defeated Bullitt Central 3-0 to retain the traveling trophy that has resided in Mount Washington since the inception of the event in 2008.

  • Barr moves from court to office...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – ‘Don’t fix what isn’t broken.’

         That old philosophy is exactly the mindset new Bullitt East athletic director Troy Barr brings to the job as he moves from being the boys’ basketball coach to running an entire successful program.
