     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.

  • BC’s struggles get worse on Tuesday

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.

    “It wasn’t my call,” said Marion.

    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.
