  • 6-minute surge lifts BC to 2-0

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Since spring practice began back in April, Bullitt Central head coach Danny Leasor has been pushing his team to be in better shape this season so they can take control of games in the fourth quarter.

         Why wait to the fourth quarter?

  • Home Sweet Home for all area...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After a cancellation, a long road trip and just an odd scheduling grid, there will finally be a high school football game in Bullitt County this week.

    In fact, there will be three games in the county this week as each program will host a contest – weather permitting of course.

  • Route to BC football could be a...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- With Bullitt Central set to play its first home football game on Friday, fans are reminded that construction is still on-going at the school and will affect parking and entry to the field.

    Basically, there will be two public entrances to the field on Friday nights this fall.

    Fans can park in the main, front, parking lot and then enter the main doors to the school. There will be a ticket area in the front hallway and then fans will walk down past the gym and out the doors where there will be a gravel path to the field.

  • North hurler Jacob Kelly commits...

     HEBRON ESTATES - As soon as he saw the campus, Jacob Kelly was hooked.

    After been on the radar of college baseball programs the past few years, the North Bullitt senior was ready to start narrowing the list of contenders.

    His list had dwindled and that included Murray State University, where his cousin, Clayton, will be a sophomore this year.

    But when the lefty hurler visited the Marshall University campus a couple of weeks ago, there was no need look any further.

  • Leasor added another year after...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Bullitt Central football coach Danny Leasor has ‘retired’ before...more than once in fact.

    But this summer Leasor announced that this would be his final season at the helm of the Cougars. Of course, this is Leasor’s second stint at Bullitt Central, having coached at the school back in the 1980s before stepping down. He then was the head coach at Pleasure Ridge Park for a number of seasons before ‘retiring’ again.

  • Charger runners do well in early...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – While many of the local teams have already had a practice meet or run in cross-country relay meets, the real start of the high school running season started on Saturday with the Tiger Run at the site of the former River Road Golf Course with Bullitt East taking part.

    It was a good day for the top runners in both the boys’ and the girls’ program as junior Sierra Poppell finished eighth in a field of 181. On the boys’ side, junior Isaac Shelton finished 15th in a huge field of 237 runners.

  • Cougars challenged, then pull...

    FAIRDALE – A fake punt midway through the third quarter returned some much needed momentum to Bullitt Central on Friday and with three touchdowns in the fourth quarter, the Cougars opened the 2014 high school football season with a 49-28 victory over Fairdale.

         Unlike a year ago, when the Cougars won 44-0 at home, the maroon and gray got a challenge this time from a much-improved Bulldog squad. The game was tied at 28-28 after Fairdale scored in the final minute of the third quarter, but the Cougars controlled the final quarter.

  • BLITZ! East pressure leads to...

    BARDSTOWN – No coach is going to complain about a win and Bullitt East head coach Darrell Vincent was certainly not doing that on Friday night after his team claimed the Bourbon Barrel with a 39-25 victory at Nelson County.

         Still, Vincent doesn’t have to call it pretty either. In fact, the veteran coach thought it was a pretty ugly.

         Coaches often think that when their team turns the ball over five times and have penalties totaling 211 yards.

  • Trojans rampage past North in...

    OKOLONA -- Putting 37 points on the scoreboard and having 400 total yards for the night, North Bullitt head coach Brett Newton should have been pleased.

  • ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE for ALS

     CEDAR GROVE - At the conclusion of Saturday’s Schmid Funeral Home Bluegrass Invitational Golf Tournament at Heritage Hill Golf Course, the Bullitt East Lady Charger team, as well as the team from Presentation Academy, took the Ice Bucket Challenge to Support ALS. 

    With a little help from the team from Notre Dame Academy, there was plenty of ice water to go around which wasn’t too bad on a hot and humid day. The Lady Charger team sent out a challenge to the Bullitt East boys’ golf team to support ALS research.
