 HEBRON ESTATES - The North Bullitt Lady Eagles continued an impressive January rise last week as they picked up three more wins with two of those coming against foes with winning records.

Coach Amber Courtney’s team is now 5-1 in January and has improved to 13-7 overall as they try to repeat last seasons 20-win mark, the first time the program had ever reached that height.

The most impressive of the wins came on Monday as the Lady Eagles played host to John Hardin, one of the top teams in the Fifth Region. The green and gold trailed 12-7 after the first quarter but then outscored the Lady Bulldogs in each of the next three quarters as they pulled out a 60-57 victory over a team that had already won 16 games this season.

North Bullitt freshman Katie Downey had one of her best offensive games of the season as she led all scorers in the game with 20 points. North Bullitt also got 13 points from Savannah Morrison along with ten points from Maria George.

After the win over John Hardin, the Lady Eagles won a pair of games that in their present incarnation they should be winning.

First, on Tuesday, the green and gold had a huge first half at Atherton, bolting to a 45-17 lead in the first half before they cruised to a 75-40 victory. North Bullitt had 12 players score in the contest as both Downing and Caitlin Montgomery had 14 points while Morrison had 12 and Shelby Morrison 10.

On Thursday, Waggener visited North Bullitt to conclude a five games in seven day stretch for the Lady Eagles. The Lady Wildcats have ten wins this season, but they were no match for North Bullitt as the green and gold jumped out to a 40-15 lead and never looked back.

Savannah Morrison led all scorers in the game with 28 points while Montgomery had 20.
