  • NB’s Marion makes late choice to attend Midway

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

    Still, three weeks into August and North Bullitt senior Noah Marion had yet to put his name on the dotted line. He pretty much knew where and what he wanted to do, but he had yet to make it official.

    Finally, after setting up a small gathering in the North Bullitt Media Center, Marion put pen to paper and signed to play baseball at Midway College in central Kentucky.

  • 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.

    For Bullitt Central, this is the ‘shadow’ portion of the Cougars’ schedule. Somehow, in scheduling three years ago for the past two seasons, Bullitt Central managed to schedule three non-district foes a week after one of their Bullitt County rivals played the same team.

  • North Bullitt puts it all together to sweep BC

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Past indicators are no guarantee of future success.

    That was certainly the case on Thursday as 23rd District rivals North Bullitt and Bullitt Central met for the first time this season in front of a large ‘black-out’ crowd in the Lady Cougars’ Den.

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

  • Central scores first before East rallies 4-1

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Bullitt Central scored first, but Bullitt East answered with four goals to beat the Cougars 4-1 on Thursday in a meeting of county rivals in boys’ soccer.

    Both squads have had trouble scoring so far this season and coming into this game the only win for either program had been a 3-2 victory for the Chargers over Jeffersontown two days earlier.

  • First half debacle sinks East vs. Central Hardin
  • Late goal-line stand lifts Cougars past Southern
  • It’s not perfect, but Eagles grab third win
  • Billings ready to make the difficult call at QB

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – One of the ‘smart’ answers that football coaches get when it comes to tough decisions is ‘that’s why you get paid the big bucks.’

    For North Bullitt head coach Adam Billings, he could be getting paid twice as much and it still wouldn’t be enough for the coach and the really tough decision that he has to make this week when it comes to his starting quarterback. The only good part of the process is that there appears to be no wrong answer.

  • Lady Eagles end the curse, beat East 1-0

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The curse is over!

    Well, at least part of the curse is over!

    The North Bullitt Lady Eagles exorcised seven years of frustration on Monday, getting a goal from junior Katlyn Andres with just under 10 minutes of play remaining to beat Sixth Region rival Bullitt East 1-0 in an intensely played contest in Mount Washington.

  • Lady Cougars looking to this season and beyond

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The past few seasons for the Bullitt Central Lady Cougar soccer program has been a mixed bag of highs and lows, wins and losses as well as frustrating turnouts.

    Now, head coach Stephanie Porter is taking the stance of building the program from the bottom up instead of just taking it year-to-year. That said, the coach doesn’t want to bypass any of the older players and weaken their chances at a competitive season.
