  • Poppell continues early Fall...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Bullitt East senior Sierra Poppell continued her strong start to the 2015 Cross-Country season with her third big run in as many races on Saturday at the Rumble Trough the Jungle Run at the Creasey Mahan Nature Preserve in Goshen.

    Poppell finished fourth out of 140 runners in the main run, finishing in 19:42.02. The winner was Kaitlyn Lacy of regional rival Male in a time of 18:28.60.

  • Eagles’ big week ends 1-0-1

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The first part of last week was going to be big for the North Bullitt boys’ soccer team and that stretch the team handled well, getting past Bullitt Central 3-1 and then drawing to a 2-2 tie with Bullitt East.

    Unfortunately, after those two emotional games, the team came out flat on Saturday at the Meade County Invitational, dropping a pair of lopsided contests.

    Still, the biggest win came on Tuesday when the green and gold rolled into Shepherdsville and got the win over the Cougars in a spirited and competitive contest.

  • Lady Chargers show net strength...

     HEBRON ESTATES – The Bullitt East Lady Chargers have a strong volleyball team this fall.

    Just ask the North Bullitt Lady Eagles.

    On Tuesday, the red and gold invaded the Eagles’ nest and took no prisoners, beating a North Bullitt squad that had been having a pretty good season by a 25-10, 25-16, 25-15 score.

  • Turf battle wages over use of...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Is there enough property at the Frank E. Simon Park to accommodate two sports organizations involved with the youth of the community?

    That might be a question that must be answered in the near future.

    But, for now, the Bullitt County YMCA and the Shepherdsville Titans football and cheerleading program will do just that -- co-exist.

    In the past, the Shepherdsville football organization has practiced in the city park off Highway 44 West.

  • It just pours on Eagles in...

     HEBRON ESTATES – Into just about every football season a little rain must fall.

    On Friday night, against undefeated Shelby County, it poured on the North Bullitt Eagles.

    That is figuratively, not literally, although it did rain a little in the game.

    North Bullitt had also bolted out to a 3-0 start this season, but they were no match for the more athletic Rockets. Shelby County was up 21-7 after the first quarter and the lead kept growing until there was a running clock in the second half en route to a 56-7 outcome.

  • BE’s final stats look good; not...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – For the second time in as many weeks, the Bullitt East Chargers had a good-looking stat sheet only to come up short on the scoreboard.

    Despite rushing for 358 yards and running 67 plays from scrimmage to only 40 for visiting Spencer County, the Chargers fell behind 28-0 in the first half and could never recover as the red and gold dropped a 41-23 decision to their Class 4-A neighbors.

  • Dukes sets school mark with six...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – There are times in high school athletics when administrators have to choose between youthful enthusiasm and senior experience.

    Bullitt Central is going with youthful enthusiasm this fall with first year head coach Tye Lawson. There are already times when Lawson’s offensive schemes have seemed magical, but every so often the new coach seems to leave the world of reality – by his own admission.

  • Eagles looking to shoot down...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – It will be a clash of undefeated teams on Friday when Shelby County rolls into a showdown with North Bullitt.

    Both teams are 3-0 and coming off impressive wins. North Bullitt was beating Jeffersontown 42-6 last week while the Rockets were rolling past Oldham County, a district rival of the Eagles, 43-7.

    The game at North Bullitt will be one of three games played on Friday within the county. Bullitt East is taking on an undefeated Spencer County team while Bullitt Central will be taking on Jeffersontown.

  • Running under the lights suits...

     ELIZABETHTOWN – Running under the lights, and on a holiday weekend, didn’t both are cross country runners as all three area high school programs took part in the Central Kentucky Run for the Gold on Saturday at the Elizabethtown Sports Park.

    Besides the high school teams, runners from Eastside, Mount Washington and Bernheim Middle Schools also ran as well as a number of elementary competitors.

  • North proves they are still the...

     HEBRON ESTATES – The North Bullitt Lady Eagles have won the last four 23rd District volleyball titles and the green and gold showed they are the team to beat again after they downed visiting Bullitt Central 25-22, 25-13, 25-18 on Thursday.

    Three of the four district titles came with wins over Bullitt Central in the championship match.

    The win came just three days after North Bullitt had gone up 2-0 at South Oldham only to lose the match in five games.

    Against their county rivals, there was no letdown down the stretch.
