  • Dolphins break halftime tie to...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- With the game tied at halftime, the Pleasant Grove Dolphins would put two scores on the board to claim the Pee Wee championship.

    The Dolphins turned back the Old Mill Bengals 19-6.

    During the first half on the 70-yard field, the defense was king for both teams.

    With 3:18 in the second quarter, Old Mill’s Kaleb Serafin broke loose for a 53-yard touchdown run.

    But, on its next possession, Pleasant Grove tied the score at 6-6.

    The big run was a 13-yard play by Michael Wheatley on fourth and four.

  • NB gets second chance against...

     HEBRON ESTATES – It’s not often in high school football that you get a chance at redemption against a rival in the same season.

    The North Bullitt Eagles will get that rare opportunity on Friday when the green and gold make the short trip around Louisville to take on fellow Class 5-A, District 3 rival South Oldham in the championship game of Region 3.

  • North’s Benz signs with Kentucky...

     HEBRON ESTATES – The recruiting game is never easy and seldom a sure thing, but for North Bullitt baseball player Blake Benz, the second time round might have been the perfect outcome.

    Back during the summer, Benz had an offer on the table from Evansville University, but as sometimes happens, priorities change and coaches head in different directions. This time, Benz was the odd man out.

  • Dragons breathe fire on Cougars...

      CRESTWOOD – For the first 16 minutes of Friday’s Class 5-A, Regional 3 semi-final, the Bullitt Central Cougars had a perfect game plan and perfectly executed it against South Oldham.

    Unfortunately, at some point the high-powered Dragons had to get the ball. Once they did, the home team found the end zone at will, scoring 20 points in the final 4:12 of the first half before rolling to a 37-0 win.

  • Brown shows what he can do for NB

     BEREA — When the North Bullitt Eagles fell behind 14-0 in the first five minutes of play Friday  night, there was no panic along the sidelines.

    After all, North Bullitt head coach Adam Billings has always said that games are won over the course of four quarters.

    On Friday, in the second round of the Class 5A post-season tournament, the visiting Eagles would overcome that deficit and roar back with a 54-41 victory over the host Madison Southern Eagles.

  • NB, BC enter round two of post-...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – For the first time since 2008, two Bullitt County football teams won opening round games last Friday.

    Now, North Bullitt will go on the road this Friday to take on Madison Southern while Bullitt Central has a rematch with South Oldham on the road in PeeWee Valley.

    Both games on Friday are set for 7:30 p.m.

    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.

  • Learning experience for local CC...

      LEXINGTON – With all four runners from Bullitt County being underclassmen and two of them running in the big show for the first time, Saturday’s Kentucky State Cross-Country Championships at the Kentucky Horse Park was a very good learning experience.

    In the girls’ 5,000-meter event, Bullitt Central junior Erika Hutchinson was the first of the three local runners back to the finish line as she finished 198th in a time of 23:33.05. Hutchinson was running in her second consecutive state finals race.

  • Lady Chargers hit with injuries

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The start of the high school basketball season is still three weeks away, but it has already been a trying one for the Bullitt East Lady Chargers.

    Expected to be one of the top teams in the state as well as the top challenger to defending state champion Butler in the always-tough Sixth Region, the Lady Chargers have already lost a pair of key cogs to season-ending knee injuries.
