    Bullitt East has to be kicking itself.

    After defeating Shelby County 56-31 last Friday night for its first win of the season, the Chargers may have to forfeit the game.

    The violation was self-reported according to Bullitt East athletic director Troy Barr.

    The Collins volleyball team has taken its last two opponents to the woodshed in a pair of straight set victories.

  • Collins faces tough test in Spencer

    Having suffered its first loss of the season last Friday at the hands of Boyle County, Collins will look to get back to winning football this week when it welcomes Spencer County for its district opener.

    The Bears had a rocky start to the 2016 season, falling to Bardstown 29-13 in the season opener.

    But Spencer has rebounded since, winning its next four games over Nelson County, East Jessamine, Bullitt East, and Bullitt Central.

    Spencer County’s strength lies with its running backs, Brandon Leff and Kadin Smith.

  • Banged-up Shelby hosts Franklin

    After losing more than a handful of starters in a loss to Bullitt East last week, the Shelby County Rockets football team could still be missing several players tonight when Franklin County visits the Rockets at Robert Doyle Stadium.

  • Flyers soar past Collins

    Without leading goal scorer Braelyn Gantt in the lineup, the Collins girls’ soccer team struggled Wednesday night, getting shutout 9-0 at home by Franklin County.

    “Franklin played a great game,” Collins coach Steve Nash said. “We missed on a couple of early opportunities that could have changed the game, which would have allowed us a chance to jump ahead.”

    Collins could not muster much offensive success from the get-go, as the Flyers jumped out to a 5-0 lead before the end of the first half.
