  • 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.

  • Friday Night Lights!!

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- There are still two weeks remaining in the regular season for Kentucky football teams, but in Bullitt County there are no more home games.

    This Friday will be the final rotation of Class 5-A District games, but for all practical purposes, the final Friday has no bearing on the post-season as the four play-off teams and their seeds have already been decided.

  • Lady Chargers make it two in a row over Mercy

     LOUISVILLE – If one is ‘just fine’ then two must be just perfect.

    Bullitt East girls’ soccer coach Steve Gentry said he was ‘just fine’ with a 1-0 victory after his team beat district-rival Mercy back on Sept. 26, the Lady Chargers’ first-ever regular season win over the perennial Sixth Region powerhouse.

    If that was the case two weeks earlier, then it was twice as good last Thursday as Bullitt East rolled to a 2-0 victory over the Jaguars to claim a second straight 24th District title.

  • Tigers too tough for BE to tame

     LOUISVILLE – Veteran Bullitt East soccer coach Mike Brangers feels that his team is narrowing the gap when it comes to chasing down Fern Creek, a team that has prospered in recent years with a deep contingent of talented foreign-born players.

    Unfortunately, there is still work to be done.
