  • After rebuilding, Cougars...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Following a rebuilding season that saw the team win just ten games, the Bullitt Central Cougars look to parlay a wealth of experience into another successful season this winter.

         It was just two years ago that coach Joe Pat Lee led the Cougars to a 21-9 record. That team lost all five starters, leading to the rebuilding season a year ago.

  • Briggs takes over NB squad at...

     HEBRON ESTATES – What started out as a relatively mundane coaching hire for the North Bullitt Eagles back in the summer, turned into something a lot bigger a few weeks ago when Dick Briggs was elevated to coach the boys’ varsity team this season.

         It was a whirlwind turn of events for Briggs who hasn’t been a high school head coach since the 1960s. Even then, that experience was in Indiana. This is Briggs’ first head coaching job in Kentucky.

  • Charger Fall Brawl

     The Bullitt East wrestling program will host the Charger Fall Brawl on Saturday.

    This is the first year for the event that Charger head coach Adam Ritter is calling “The battle at East, After the Feast.”

    There will be seven teams taking part in the event. Besides Bullitt East, teams from North Bullitt, North Oldham, Valley, Holy Cross, Male and Western Hills will be taking part.

    There will be three mats of action taking place.

  • Lady Chargers prepared for a big...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The expectations for the Bullitt East Lady Chargers are always high.

    This winter, the plans are bigger and grander than even normal.

    With the combination of a strong senior class and an exceptional freshman group of players, the Lady Chargers are poised for big things at the district, regional and state level.

  • It will be guards galore for NB

     HEBRON ESTATES – If North Bullitt head coach Amber Courtney was working in the NBA then she would be looking to trade some guards for some ‘bigs.’

    But you can’t do that in high school basketball. You have to play with the cards that you are dealt. So, Courtney and her guard-oriented Lady Eagles will go into battle this winter long on back-court talent and experience and short on tall.

    The Lady Eagles don’t have a player over 5-8 this season, which leads Courtney to say that her team will start five guards each and every night.

  • Lady Cougars can’t get any...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – High school basketball coaches love to have senior leaders.

    For second-year Bullitt Central girls’ head coach Kyle Roach that is not a luxury he will not have this winter. The leader part he feels he will have, but the Lady Cougar head coach will have no seniors this season.

  • Big plays sink Chargers'...

     RADCLIFF – Bullitt East’s season back in the sun faded to black on Friday as the red and gold couldn’t overcome a blizzard of big plays in the Class 5-A, Region 2 Championship game, falling to perennial power John Hardin 28-14.

         The Chargers played well enough to win. In fact, Bullitt East had 20 more snaps on offense than the Bulldogs and finished with 35 more yards of total offense, but the road team could not convert big fourth down plays nor stop John Hardin’s speed on the perimeter.

  • Locals earn Girls' All...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – A total of seven local players were named to the All-Sixth Region Girls’ Soccer Team that was recently announced by the area coaches.

         On the first team of 11 players, the coaches selected Bullitt East senior Meghan Roby along with Lady Charger junior Alnee Tutson and freshman Christian Foster. Joining that first group was North Bullitt senior Taylor Johnson.

  • BE's Gravens picks St....

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – For some high school seniors, both for those involved in athletics and those not in sports, picking a college can be a daunting task.

         Not for Bullitt East senior softball standout Kelsey Gravens. In fact, Gravens didn’t even wait until her senior year to make a selection.

  • Middle school football near?...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Does Bullitt County need middle school football?

    You bet.

    Is Bullitt County going to get middle school football?

    That question is not so easy to answer.

    What is probably a given is that we are not going to get middle school football in the traditional sense anytime soon. That being teams at each of the six local middle schools with local fields and coaches in the building and such.
