  • BC scores 35 straight points in Saturday win

     FAIRDALE – After giving up a touchdown less than two minutes into the game, the Bullitt Central Cougars responded with 35 consecutive points on Saturday night to beat Fairdale 42-13 in the King of the Bluegrass Bowl at Fairdale.

    That first score by the Bulldogs came on back-to-back play that included a couple of missed defensive assignments by the Cougars. After shoring up those mistakes, the Cougars’ defense allowed Fairdale just two yards and one first down over the next five possessions.

  • Central volleyball flush with experience in ‘18

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – With six seniors and four returning starters, the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars have plenty of experience heading into the 2018 volleyball season.

    That is bad news for other teams in the 23rd District as the Lady Cougars have won the past two titles under head coach Karen Vogt. The team also reached the semi-finals of the Sixth Region Tournament a year ago before losing to eventual state runner-up Mercy.

  • Cougars will play home games

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After a little bump in the road, Bullitt Central will start this week playing football and soccer matches on its home field.

    It was nine months ago that the perfect storm of heavy rain and a band competition on the field left the ground so unsuitable for play that last November the football team had to play its first-round ‘home’ play-off game at Nelson County High School against Dixie Heights.

  • First half woes sink North at Scott County

     GEORGETOWN — Down 14-0 in the first quarter, North Bullitt head coach Adam Billings was excited.

    His Eagles were driving the ball against a contender for the state’s 6-A championship this season.

    However, a delay of game penalty put the Eagles in a bad spot. Six minutes later, the Scott County Cardinals put the ball into the end zone to more times to put the contest out of reach.

    For a second straight year, North Bullitt came home with a 56-13 defeat.

  • Chargers were hunting Bears with a stick

     SHIVELY – In coaching parlance, ‘hunting bears with a stick’ is not a good thing.

    Well on Friday, in the opener to the 2018 season, the Bullitt East Chargers really were hunting bears and the stick the red and gold had wasn’t nearly large enough as the Butler Bears made it a two-year sweep by winning 49-0.


     A list of updated scores from Bullitt County high school football games during the 2018 season.

  • Central boys’ soccer ready for big leap forward

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After winning just two games each of the past two seasons, you might not think of Bullitt Central as a big challenge to many area soccer teams.

    However, the past two years under head coach Aaron Shaw have been a learning experience. Even with the low win output, the Cougars have seen the roster increase in size. The team has also gained much needed experience as it sits in a community that has few options for soccer play outside of the high school season.

  • Cougars looking to build on past success

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – After four consecutive winning seasons, four straight play-off berths and three post-season wins since 2014, the Bullitt Central Cougars are looking for new heights to scale.

    For head coach Matt Kuehn, who is starting his third season at the helm, that next step is winning a second round play-off game, something that has never happened before in the program.

  • North is bigger, stronger and wiser for 2018

      HEBRON ESTATES – Being the first team in the state last season to hang up the pads is not something that North Bullitt head coach Adam Billings ever wants to repeat.

    However, the coach and his assistants found a silver lining last fall to a poor season as the team was able to get into the weight room a whole six weeks earlier than after any other season. That, compared with a solid work ethic from the returning players, has Eagle football looking much more imposing now than a year ago.

  • For final time local teams will chase the Dragons

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – It’s not often that the three Bullitt County football coaches can agree on anything, but at least at the start of the 2018 season, they all agree that they are chasing South Oldham when it comes to the Class 5-A, District Three race.

    This is the final year of the four-year alignment plan that includes the three Bullitt County programs along with South Oldham, Oldham County and Nelson County. Four of the six teams will make the post-season come November.
