  • East splits games in Kentucky

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – Before heading out for their annual spring break trip to Florida, the Bullitt East Chargers split a pair of baseball games early last week, beating Southern 16-0 before falling at Christian Academy 6-0 a day later.

    A game on Thursday against a visiting team from Wisconsin was rained out.

    Competing at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Florida, on the property of Walt Disney World, the red and gold got the week off on the right foot on Sunday, beating Passaic Valley High School out of New Jersey by a 6-1 count.

  • North continues to play well with 5-4 win at Male

     LOUISVILLE -- It was the team’s only game of the week but it was an important one.

    The North Bullitt Eagles went to Male High on Tuesday to battle on of the region’s perennial powerhouses.

    And the team came home with an impressive 5-4 victory.

    But while it may have been the first Eagle victory over the Bulldogs in recent history, Wise was impressed that the post-game celebration was nothing out of the ordinary.

  • Numbers game to be job one at North

    HEBRON ESTATES-- In Adam Billings' first season as the head coach at Elizabethtown High School, in 2011, the Panthers were pretty much down right horrible.
        That Class 3-A Elizabethtown team failed to win a game and were outscored by an average of 45 points each Friday night. That happens when you have just 35 players in your program.

  • Adam Billings takes over NB football program

    HEBRON ESTATES-- Ten days ago, Adam Billings was not even aware that the head football coaching position was open at North Bullitt.
        Less than a week later, after a whirlwind romance, Billings was hired last Wednesday as the sixth head coach to lead the Eagle program over the last 39 years.
        Billings, who grew up in Bullitt County and played in the Cedar Grove Vikings' organization, replaces Brett Newton who stepped down last month after coaching the Eagles for the past 18 seasons.

  • Why I Coach

    April 2, 2015


    TO: Bullitt County HS Football Fans


    Today, I literally turn over the keys to North Bullitt football to my successor, Adam Billings. I wish him complete and early success as he will be coaching “my” boys for the next few years. I thank everyone associated with North Bullitt football for their support. Coach Vincent, you just became the “old man” in the county!


  • BE's Mattingly to wrestle at St. Catharine

    MOUNT WASHINGTON-- After falling in love with the sport as an eighth-grader, now Bullitt East senior Dylan Mattingly can continue competing in wrestling for the next four years after signing with St. Catharine College recently.
        The overall situation worked out just fine for Mattingly. St. Catharine just completed its first season of wrestling after becoming only the third school in the state to offer the sport, joining Campbellsville and Lindsey Wilson.

  • Tennis teams finish first half with improved play

    SHEPHERDSVILLE -- The changing weather has been tough this spring.
    Warm, hot days followed by winter winds.
    With about a month to go until regional competition, teams were getting in some final matches in the days before spring break.

  • BC wins first in softball while North wins two

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Tied at 2-2 heading into the top of the seventh inning on a road trip to Breckinridge County, the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars exploded for nine runs in the top of the final frame to win 11-2 for the team’s first win of the season.

    In the big inning, the Lady Cougars sent 12 batters to the plate and they pounded out eight hits including back-to-back doubles from Belle Leonard and Brooklyn Benefield that helped break the game open as well as a bases clearing triple by Sarah Noble.

  • BE and BC clash at Nelson County Ice-Breaker event

     BARDSTOWN – Bullitt Central entered the area high school track wars last week as they opened their season at the aptly named Nelson County Icebreaker Meet.

    Bullitt East, which had already competed in two meets prior to this one, was also in the field and had a strong outing on the girls’ side.

    Girls’ Action

    Bullitt East picked up seven wins in the 17 events and showed that they will be one of the top teams in the area again this season.

  • Wind not blowing at NB leads to balls flying out

     HEBRON ESTATES -- Maybe for the first time in recent memory the wind was not blowing into the face of the batters at North Bullitt High.

    With no wind, skipper Brian Wise’s team turned into the long-ball Eagles last week.

    Six balls left the yard for North Bullitt. Unfortunately, one also left off the bat of a visiting player.

    Still, entering the third week of play, Wise has to be pleased with his team’s 6-3 record.
