  • Cheering against the odds

     SHEPHERDSVILLE— On a Friday night in the fall, she’s on the sideline getting the crowd excited about the game on the field.

    Bullitt Central junior Kirsten Mitchell looks like a normal cheerleader on game day but she’s a cheerleader with the odds stacked against her.

      HIGHVIEW – After just two practices and no games over the previous nine days, North Bullitt Lady Eagles head coach David Marion was not expecting a thing of beauty on Friday when his team took the court against Moore.

After starting the season with six straight wins, the Lady Mustangs has won just two of their last ten games.

    The win moved the Eagles to 2-1 in district play while Moore dropped to 1-1. With Southern at 1-1 and Bullitt Central at 1-2, it will come down to Moore’s game with Southern on Feb. 6 to decide the top-seed for the post-season tournament that will be played at Southern.
