  • Cougar Quad Invitational

     There was action all over the gym floor at Bullitt Central on Saturday as the Cougar wrestling team hosted five other teams in a round-robin event.

    Snow the previous night forced the event to start two hours late, but all of the other teams, including Bullitt East, got to compete. The other teams were Fairdale, Walton-Verona, Valley and Covington Catholic.

    This was the second year for the event. 

    Bullitt East and Bullitt Central were supposed to join North Bullitt for the All-County Meet on Wednesday, but North Bullitt will not attend.

  • Bullitt East Archery Winning Big

      It has been quite a season up to this point for the Bullitt East archery program.

    At the start of the season, the team had 55 shooters.

    Before the Christmas break, the team competed in three events, winning at Thomas Nelson and at St. Gaberieal.

    After the break, the team really hits its stride, setting a new school record of 3,400 to win their own Invitational title.

    In addition, the team had six of the top ten individual finishers with the top male and female competitors.

  • Lady Eagles have just three score, but manage big win

       LOUISVILLE – The North Bullitt Lady Eagles might be the only team in the area that can say that they have an undefeated record playing Assumption High School.

    The Lady Eagles picked up a second win in as many seasons on Saturday as they defeated one of the area’s top programs 55-30 in the first game of the day at the Raatz Fence/O’Shea’s Basketball Classic at Mercy High School. The event is a one-day ‘showcase’ with some of the top teams in the area taking part.

  • Lady Chargers win two games in impressive style

     LOUISVILLE – The Bullitt East Lady Chargers have played a lot of games in the Raatz Fence/O’Shea’s Basketball Classic over the years, but just one game each season.

    This year, the Lady Chargers got the honor of playing a pair of games in the two-day ‘showcase’ event at Mercy High School and the red and gold made the most of the opportunity, picking up a pair of impressive wins in an 18-hour time frame.

  • Audit report gives each side reason to claim win

     Can a report from a state auditor serve the purpose of making both sides happy?

    We guess so.

    Let’s take, for example, the recent release of Adam Edelen’s audit of the Southeast Bullitt Fire Board.

    Going into the request for the examination, the concern was mismanagement of tax dollars.

    Beyond that, local residents were looking for some tidbit of illegal activity. Theft of tax dollars would be an added bonus. Recommendation for jail time for criminal misdeeds would be icing on the cake.

  • Catch of the day: Fryer fire at Long John Silver's

      Around 10 o'clock this morning, Shepherdsville Fire Department personnel responded to the Long John Silvers restaurant on Joe B. Hall Avenue.

    Upon arrival, firefighters saw that a fryer had apparently caught fire and the flames were taken up the exhaust system, exactly how the system is to work.

    Fire Chief Layne Troutman reported that there were no injuries. The major damage was from smoke which filled the building.

    There was no timetable on when the restaurant would reopen.

  • Hammond proud to receive diploma after leaving school to serve country

    MOUNT WASHINGTON--Last December Frank Hammond, 81, received something he never thought he would--his high school diploma.

  • Lady Chargers come up just short against powerful Mercy

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – In what could be the first of four meetings between the two girls’ state basketball powers, Mercy jumped on top early and then held off a late Bullitt East rally to record a 64-53 victory on Tuesday.

         The win came in the regular season game that will be used to seed the upcoming 24th District Tournament that Mercy will be hosting in late February. A year ago, Bullitt East won the regular season meeting at Mercy, but then lost to the Jaguars in the championship game of the 24th District Tournament.

  • Girls' LIT play starts Tuesday

    LOUISVILLE--It will be Bullitt County Night as the Girls' Louisville Invitational Tournament kicks-off at Knight's Hall on the campus of Bellarmine University.

    For the first time ever, all three Bullitt County teams will be taking part in the mid-season event. Bullitt East has played in the event in the past, winning it 20 years ago, but this will be the first time ever for North Bullitt and Bullitt Central taking part.

  • Lady Cougars overpower Moore

    OKOLONA--Get in. Get out, Don't get anyone hurt.

    That was pretty much the bottom line for the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars on Tuesday as they traveled into Jefferson County for a 23rd District shutdown with Moore.

    Already nursing injuries, both long and short term, the Lady Cougars just needed to wrap up district play with a win to claim the number two spot in the first-round of the post-season.

    Coach Kyle Roach's team did that, jumping out to a 19-2 lead in the first quarter and then rolling to a 64-24 victory.
