  • Second half surge lifts East past North in final

     MOUNT WASHINGTON - Santa and Mrs. Claus handed out the trophies to North Bullitt and Bullitt East in the Schmid Funeral Home Holiday Classic on Monday night.

    But neither team got any “gifts” from ole’ Saint Nick.

    It was what those in the crowd expected -- a hard-fought game.

    In the end, the homestanding Bullitt East Lady Chargers would find the championship trophy under their tree.

    Bullitt East, riding a 21-5 advantage in third quarter, gave North Bullitt its first loss of the season in a 57-47 decision.

  • Semi-Finals -- North rings the Bell; BE chops big foe

     MOUNT WASHINGTON - To reach the championship clash, North Bullitt and Bullitt East had vastly different challenges.

    North Bullitt coach David Marion wanted his players to be mentally tough and that it exactly what he got as the Lady Eagles held on for a 71-70 thriller against previously-unbeaten Bell County.

    Even with Katie Downey on the bench much of the first half, the experienced group of Megan Goeing, Rachel Badgett, Erin Dolan and Lauren Deel maintained a five-point lead at intermission.

  • East and North open with wins while Central struggles with offensive woes

      Bullitt East faced a team that had not lost to a school in Kentucky but the Lady Chargers may have put their most complete game of the season together for a 71-55 victory over Boyd County.

    Down by two at halftime, Bullitt East would outscore the visitors 37-19 in the final 16 minutes to secure the victory.

    For North Bullitt, the opening game of the tourney was a little easier as the Lady Eagles came away with a 56-37 win over Ryle.

  • East’s Roby heading to Georgetown to play softball

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – With a little help from some friends, past, present and future, Bullitt East senior Loren Roby cast her lot with Georgetown College to play softball starting in the fall of 2015.

    Roby, who will be the only senior on the Lady Charger roster in the spring, made it all official in front of family, teammates and coaches in a ceremony recently in the Media Center at Bullitt East.

    The pitcher/outfielder also was being recruited by Bellarmine and Campbellsville before deciding that Georgetown would be her next destination.

  • Giving gift of prosperity to Kentucky

     FRANKFORT - As the song goes, “It’s the most wonderful time of the year.”

    The Christmas season always evokes a spirit of thankfulness and giving, when families come together to celebrate the reason for the season.

    And the New Year’s holiday is often a time to start with a slate clean, hopefulness toward starting something new like giving up smoking or losing weight.

    In this holiday season for the Commonwealth we can be thankful in some ways, but in others we are hoping for a new start.
