  • Lady Chargers’ big effort powers team to runner-up finish

     LOUISVILLE – It came down to a single point, which rarely happens in high school cross-country events, but the Bullitt East Lady Chargers ended up being on the right side of that one point on Saturday to finish second in the Class 3-A, Region Three meet at Seneca Park.

    This was the best finish for the Lady Chargers in several seasons and was done with only two seniors and no juniors among the top seven runners.

  • CAL has the Wright answers in beating BE

     LOUISVILLE – There is a reason that Christian Academy of Louisville senior Milton Wright is being chased by most of the major football schools in the Midwest.

    There is a reason that the Centurions have not lost a game this season and a reason why CAL has won 35 of its past 38 games including the 2016 Class 2-A State Championship.

    The Bullitt East Chargers found out on Friday the reason why Wright and his Centurion teammates have found so much success. It’s because they are really good.

  • Long trip, long night for the Cougars

     BOWLING GREEN – The Bullitt Central Cougars hit the road on Friday and unfortunately, the road hit back in a big way as the maroon and gray were sideswiped by Bowling Green 52-0.

    Bullitt Central got off to a horrible start, failing to muster a first down until the score was already 21-0 late in the first quarter. By halftime it was 42-0 and the Cougars had little to show for the effort.

  • Post-season for area football now in clear view

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – There wasn’t much on the line Friday during the final week of ‘district’ play for the three area football teams.

    Barring a series of hard to fathom outcomes, of which not even one part actually happened, Class 5-A, District 3 was already in the books with South Oldham taking the top spot followed by Oldham County and then Bullitt Central and Bullitt East. This was the fourth straight season that South Oldham earned the top seed. In fact, the Dragons have not lost a game to a district rival in four years, a span of 22 games.

  • BC wins MKAC CC boys’ title

     BARDSTOWN – In the final tune-up of the regular season before this Saturday’s Class 3-A, Region 3 meet at Seneca Park, both Bullitt Central and Bullitt East put together strong showings at the Mid-Kentucky Athletic Conference Championships last Tuesday.

    Bullitt Central captured the boys’ overall team title finishing with 43 points while Bullitt East was second with 74 points.

  • Regional CC set for Saturday

     LOUISVILLE – The three Bullitt County cross-country programs will  compete on Saturday in the Class 3-A, Region 3 Championships at Seneca Park in Louisville.

    The girls’ race is set to start at 2 p.m. and the boys’ race will follow at 2:45 p.m. This meet is also being run in conjunction with the Class 3-A, Region 4 championships that will start at 3:30 p.m. on the same course.

  • Lady Chargers come up just short at state

     BARDSTOWN – Trailing 1-0 just 25 seconds into the match and 3-0 after 13 minutes of play, Monday’s Semi-State Three game of the KHSAA Girls’ Kentucky State Soccer Tournament sponsored by the U.S. Army ROTC might have appeared to be a lost cause for the Bullitt East Lady Chargers.

  • Bullitt Central, Bullitt East advance to regional semis

     VALLEY STATION — On Monday, Bullitt East played one of its best matches of the year.

    On Wednesday, the Lady Chargers provided a solid but unspectacular performance.

    As a result, Bullitt East finished off its volleyball season with a loss in the semifinal of the Sixth Region tournament.

    But for coach Ricky Hoffman, it was an unbelievable season.

    Finishing in the state’s top 20, Bullitt East defeated Butler 25-19, 17-25, 25-17, 25-21.

  • Bullitt East has just too much offense for North

     HIGHVIEW - Having defeated North Bullitt in its regular season meeting meant little to Bullitt East head coach Steven Gentry.

    “To be the champ, you have to beat the champ,” Gentry said of his message to his Lady Charger soccer players.

    Before the Sixth Region semifinal clash on Wednesday, North Bullitt was still the defending champion. Gentry felt his players understood his message.

    Besides, it’s still a county rival and the two teams have been part of a three-school dominance in regional play.

  • Lady Chargers wins elusive title

     HIGHVIEW — When Bullitt East head coach Steve Gentry walked off the field last year after losing the Sixth Region final 1-0 to North Bullitt, he felt he had a team that was young but could return to the same spot in 2018.

    After failing to win the regional title for the past six years, Gentry and his Lady Chargers were finally able to hold up that trophy — and a ticket to the state girls’ soccer tournament.
