  • Chargers just crush Manual

     MOUNT WASHINGTON -- Coming out of the disappointment of a quarter-final loss in the Boys’ Louisville Invitational Tournament five days earlier, the Bullitt East Chargers started a new winning streak in a rare Wednesday game as they crushed visiting Manual 79-46.

    It has been a tough season for the Crimsons as the normally powerful program had just three wins heading to Mount Washington. Bullitt East made sure they didn’t get the fourth victory as the red and gold pulled away from an 18-14 lead after one quarter with a 23-3 advantage in the second frame.

  • BC’s struggles get worse on Tuesday

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Far from a powerhouse offensive team this winter, the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars may have hit rock bottom on Tuesday as they were beaten by visiting Bardstown 51-20.

    The game was the fourth in five days for the maroon and gray and that could well have had something to do with the struggles on offense. The Lady Cougars made just six shots the entire night in 49 attempts (12.2 percent). Bullitt Central was actually a little better outside the arc than inside it as they made three of 15 from long range.

  • Defense turns up heat to fuel pair of victories

     HEBRON ESTATES — Hailey Free’s playing career is far from over.

    However, the junior point guard got an early start in her coaching career on Tuesday.

    Entering the locker room at halftime with a narrow two-point lead over Assumption, Free suggested to head coach David Marion that the Lady Eagles open up the third quarter with its half-court trapping defense.

    “It wasn’t my call,” said Marion.

  • Nightmare final minute forces NB overtime loss

     OKOLONA – Can a high school basketball team play both great and poorly in the same game?

    The North Bullitt Eagles pretty much proved that you can do all that and more as they rallied from a large deficit to take a big lead and then squandered it all in the final 50 seconds to force overtime before finally losing.

    Confused? So was North Bullitt head coach Korey Craddock after his team dropped a 78-75 decision to Southern in a key game within the 23rd District.

  • East rallies...twice...to beat Mercy 70-66

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – When you have been on the varsity team for six seasons, are the state’s seventh leading scorer and the favorite to be named Miss Basketball, the coach doesn’t need to remind you to pick up your game in the fourth quarter of a tight contest.

    Bullitt East senior Lindsey Duvall knew what her team needed and she responded with 14 of her game-high 26 points in the final three minutes on Tuesday to help lift the Lady Chargers to a 70-66 victory over arch-rival Mercy in a battle of two of the state’s top-20 teams.

Russell for his role in a conspiracy to defraud Fulton County citizens, through kickbacks and concealment of costs associated with work performed on the 2015 Fulton County Detention Center expansion, announced United States Attorney John E. Kuhn, Jr.

  • Director to appeal suspension

     SHEPHERDSVILLE  -- The man on the hot seat of recent complaints over his actions as director of Bullitt County Animal Control did not speak on Tuesday.

    But, he will have an opportunity to address at least the actions — which resulted in a recent four-day suspension — during an appeal hearing on Tuesday, Jan. 24, at 9:30 a.m.

    Mark Williams sat through another round of complaints during Tuesday’s fiscal court meeting. He did not argue the concerns and, under county employee policies, Williams cannot talk with the media.
