        So, when head coach Adam Billings’ Eagles went head-to-head against the Shelby County Rockets on Friday, he wasn’t as concerned about the score as he was how his players competed.

     HEBRON ESTATES – The end of his high school career was becoming a fond memory and the start of college was fast approaching.

  • BC hopes to see the light in the shadows

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After all three local football teams played at home last Friday, all three will be on the road this week as the games are dwindling down to the start of district play on Sept. 23.

    Bullitt Central came into the match with a 5-3 record and they had beaten some traditionally competitive teams in the area.
