  • BC's quick start takes the bite out of Bulldogs

     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 line in loss

     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 offensive clash

     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.

  • County to consider making adults pay price

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – A committee of leaders throughout the county are on a mission.

  • Students going through anti-bullying program

     PIONEER VILLAGE - One of the ways the Bullitt County Public Schools system hopes to deter suicide is through prevention.

    Some suicidal situations involving younger people include actions within the schools or with classmates, many implementing bullying methods.

  • Fiscal Court supports bid to earn playground grant

         The vote on Tuesday came with a recommendation from the Bullitt County Parks Committee to move forward with the application.
