  • Mixed night Monday in regional...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Local teams had some mixed results on Monday evening as regional play opened in volleyball and soccer.

    In volleyball action, Bullitt Central held off a scrappy Beth Haven team, winning 3-1.

    Bullitt Central started a little slow but evened the score midway in the first set en route to a 25-19, 25-16, 20-25, 25-22 victory.

    Karen Vogt’s team went from a power match against North Bullitt to a softer, more touch contest against Beth Haven.

  • Regional action in high gear...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- After a full week of district action, area soccer and volleyball teams will be back in action this week for regional play at various venues around Louisville.

    It was mostly good news for the seven area teams still alive as the draws went as well as could be hoped.

    Incredibly, the Sixth Region Volleyball Tournament has the exact same eight teams as a year ago and over and above that the four quarter-finals pit the same teams as a year ago.

  • Play-off spot the goal in final...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – After 20 years as district rivals, the final regular season meeting between the North Bullitt Eagles and Bullitt East Chargers within the same classification will come on Friday in the 39th showdown in The Clash.

  • Cougars hosting South Oldham

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – While last week’s 38-33 loss to Oldham County was disappointing, it wasn’t the end of the world for the Bullitt Central Cougars.

    The maroon and gray can really make a mess of the top end of Class 5-A, District 3 if they can defeat visiting South Oldham on Friday in the final home game of the season for the Cougars.

    Yes, South Oldham has not lost a district game since realignment four years ago. That includes four wins over the Cougars, including two victories in 2016.

  • Quick start powers East past...

     HIGHVIEW – A quick start was just what the coach ordered for the Bullitt East Lady Chargers on Monday in the opening round of the 24th District Volleyball Tournament at Whitefield Academy.

Once on the court, Bullitt East won the first game 25-20 and despite a sub-par second game in which they lost 15-25, the red and gold surged back ahead and won the match 25-14, 25-20.

  • NB has balance in beating Nelson

     HEBRON ESTATES – Following three straight losses in which the defense had given up 137 points, the North Bullitt Eagles rebounded on Friday with a 47-10 victory over Class 5-A District rival Nelson County.

    This is the fourth year for the present football alignment in the state and North Bullitt has beaten the Cardinals in each of the four meetings.

    After going 1-9 last season and changing coaches, Nelson County fell to 0-7 with this defeat.

  • Fall post-season has a busy week

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Despite coming off Fall Break, the post-season for volleyball, as well as boys’ and girls’ soccer, will kick-off with district play this week.
