  • East ready for a new era under Atchley

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – It will be the start of a new era in more ways than one for the Bullitt East Chargers when the football team takes the field on Saturday to battle Fairdale in the King of the Bluegrass Bowl.

    In the short-term, this will be the first season for the red and gold in Class 6-A where they will have to battle Male, Fern Creek and Southern at least four times over the second half of the season. Male is the defending state champions amongst the largest schools in the state.

  • Eagles ready to make a huge leap forward

     HEBRON ESTATES – The past two seasons have not gone as well for the North Bullitt Eagles has head coach Adam Billings would have liked after the two previous seasons had the green and gold battling for district titles.

    That all changed as the Eagles won just six games over the past two seasons and failed to reach the Class 5-A play-offs either time.

  • Central looking to thrive as the hunted

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After five straight seasons with a winning record and three consecutive seasons of reaching the second round of the play-offs, both program bests, the Bullitt Central Cougars are no longer the hunters.

    Instead, they are the hunted. That is especially true this fall as the maroon and gray move into a district where none of the other four teams posted a winning record last season. There is even talk of reaching the third round of the post-season, something no Cougar team has done before.

  • Bullitt Cup soccer Saturday

     MOUNT WASHINGTON -- The traditional start of the local high school boys’ soccer season will be on Saturday with the Bullitt Cup competition.

    This year’s event is being hosted by Bullitt East and all three games will be contested at the new Mount Washington Sports Park.

    Bullitt East is the defending champion.

  • Central AD Hodges had a very busy and successful summer

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Nobody had a busier spring and summer than Bullitt Central athletic director John Hodges.

    However, heading into a new school year and athletic season, it seems that he had a really good go of it hiring new coaches.

  • Senior-laden Lady Eagles seeking a district crown

     HEBRON ESTATES – Even the most general of North Bullitt volleyball fans can figure out the one and only goal for the team in 2019.

    Over the past three seasons, coach Keith Higgs’ team has posted a 5-1 in the regular season matches against Bullitt Central. However, when the post-season rolls around, the Lady Cougars have won three straight meetings over North Bullitt.

    Win the championship of the 23rd District Tournament and pretty much everything else will fall into place.

  • Lady Chargers hope to get more out of fewer this volleyball year

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Can fewer mean more?

    Bullitt East volleyball coach Ricky Hoffman is asking that question this season as after suffering heavy graduation losses as well as having a very small junior class (two), he has opted to carry just nine players on the varsity roster.

    There is no shortage of players in the program as he kept 31 total players from the 52 that attended try-outs back in July. The program had 84 players go through open gym drills back in the spring and early summer.

  • BE girls ready to repeat 6th Region title...and more

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Expectations are a good thing when those expectations are positive.

    That is the situation that the Bullitt East Lady Charger soccer team finds itself in this season. The red and gold have most of the key cogs returning from a team that went 19-5-1 and won both the 24th District and Sixth Region titles before falling to eventual state semi-finalist Bethlehem in a 6-5 classic in the opening round of the state tournament.

    With eight returning starters, the Lady Chargers are looking for even more in 2019.

  • After graduation losses North in ‘rebuild’ mode

     HEBRON ESTATES – After losing 23 seniors to graduation over the past two seasons, many of who were key cogs in the team’s 2017 Sixth Region title team, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles are facing a rebuilding campaign this fall.

    Not every coach likes the word ‘rebuilding’, but veteran North Bullitt mentor Amber Mink honestly admits that is the correct language in this situation.

  • East 8th, NB 24th in finals

     NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE – Bullitt County’s bright weekend at the National Archery in Schools Program biggest event of the season showcased the area’s competitiveness as both Bullitt East and North Bullitt finished ranked among the top 25 high school programs in the country just off the pace of World Champion Bullitt Central.
