  • BE back in action at LaRue

    HODGENVILLE - After a week to catch their breath and solidify some of the major changes that the offense has gone through over the past few weeks, the Bullitt East Chargers will be back in action on Friday against district rival LaRue County.

    This is an important game for the red and golf for a number of reasons, but the district standings are not among those things. Bullitt East has already wrapped up the number one seed for the Class 4-A play-offs while LaRue County is locked into the number four spot no matter what happens this week.

  • Lots of questions remain to be...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - With one game remaining in district play during the regular season, the play-off picture for November is starting to come into focus.

    In fact, after the games next Friday, the play-off picture will pretty much be decided.

    (All teams should have completed district games by next Friday, but because of the lost week in Jefferson County because of the wind storm, some district games might still need to be played.)

    Class 4-A

  • Bennett leads Cougars to big win...

    HEBRON ESTATES - Down 10-0 at halftime, Bullitt Central veteran coach Dan Leasor was not discouraged.

    He knew what his Cougar football team could do. In fact, as the clock ticked off in the second quarter, Leasor was overheard telling one of his players that if they were only down by 10, Bullitt Central was in great shape.

    Whether Leasor is a prophet or whether he has a good read on his football team, Bullitt Central was indeed in good shape as the Cougars captured the Bullitt Cup after defeating North Bullitt 26-17.

  • Clash of Inches - East survives...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - In a rivalry as intense as The Clash, sometimes inches seem like miles.

    That case was no more evident than on Friday as the battle royale between Bullitt East and North Bullitt literally came down to less than 12 inches. That was as far as North Bullitt was from the goal line on the third play of the fourth quarter.

  • North-Marion winner gets first...

    HEBRON ESTATES - To play at home in the post-season, the North Bullitt Eagles have to win at home on Friday against district rival Marion County.

  • Soccer, volleyball district...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Post-season play for fall sports teams will be in full swing this week as both boys’ and girls’ soccer as well as volleyball will conduct district play this week.

  • THE GAME: County's oldest...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - There have been times in the recent past, when The Game between North Bullitt and Bullitt Central did not live up to its name.

    At times, one team was a lot better than the other, i.e. North Bullitt winning 56-0 two years ago. Other times, neither team was very good.
