  • A big second half lifts Lady Cougars to impressive win

      FRANKFORT – It has been a real roller-coaster season to this point for the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars, but they ended a flurry of holiday games on Saturday with a 52-38 victory over Belfry in the Centria Metals/Penn Station Shootout at Franklin County High School.

  • Lady Eagles end active holidays with injuries, loss

     FRANKFORT – With a patched together line-up that didn’t include the team’s two leading scorers, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles had a big job ahead of them on Saturday as they faced Lexington Lafayette in the second game of the Centria Metals/Penn Station Shootout at Franklin County High School.

    North Bullitt played hard with the short bench, but in the end it was more poor free throw shooting that cost the Lady Eagles as they dropped a 56-55 decision in overtime.

    Still, it would have been nice to have a full roster of players.
