  • Colts stampede past limping North Bullitt

     HEBRON ESTATES — With leading scorer Travis Dunnavan sidelined with a knee injury for at least the next few weeks, other members of the North Bullitt Eagle basketball team will have an opportunity to step up.

    And, head coach Korey Craddock would like to see several step up to the challenge.

    In its home opener, it would be Brendan Holt and Logan Steinmacher who would answer the call.

    However, they couldn’t produce enough points to defeat a very good DeSales team.

  • BC drops pair as schedule toughens

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After opening the season with a win, the road got a lot tougher for the Bullitt Central Cougars over the weekend as the young team dropped a pair of contests.

    All three of the opening games have been played on the road.

    On Friday, the Cougars were in Bardstown and despite it being close most of the way, the team dropped a 66-48 decision to Bethlehem. A night later, the athleticism levels were far apart as Valley rolled to a 72-38 win.

     A new pavilion calls for new lights and a new way to celebrate a Mount Washington tradition.

    After a countdown from First Baptist of Mount Washington pastor Billy Compton, dancing lights in sync to merry music brightened Main Street.

  • Talks about contract for fire agencies sweet music

     Should we be hopeful or should we be skeptical?

    Should the glass be half full or shall it be considered half empty?

    Such is the philosophical challenge we face when considering the recent revelation that there could possibly be an agreement between two feuding fire organizations.

    We would love to believe that the recently-revealed talks between the chairman of the Southeast Bullitt Volunteer Fire Department and the meeting-by-meeting appointed chairman of the Southeast Bullitt Fire Protection District.

  • Less Deel no problem for Lady Eagles on Saturday

     SHELBYVILLE -- As concerning as it might be to have your leading scorer sitting beside you on the bench for most of the game, it is so exciting to see others step up.

    In its opener, North Bullitt head coach David Marion saw his Bellarmine University-signee Lauren Deel sitting on the bench much too much against Collins High.

    But, in the end, there was no reason for Marion to fret as the Lady Eagles were just fine in the 61-48 victory.

  • Lady Chargers battle to the end against Male

     LOUISVILLE – It was a battle between two of the state’s top teams on Friday and when the dust had finally settled it was Male that had pulled out an 81-78 victory over Bullitt East.

    Male had opened the season three nights earlier by knocking off defending state champion and pre-season number one Butler by a 68-62 score. Bullitt East was to battle Butler on Tuesday night of this week in Mount Washington.

  • East slips past Collins Friday

     SHELBYVILLE -- New Bullitt East boys’ basketball coach Jason Couch got his first win in red and gold on Friday as his Chargers defeated Martha Layne Collins 58-51 on the road.

    The foe was a familiar one to Couch as his former post was at Shelby County High School, the school on the other side of Shelbyville. Those teams are in the same district within the Eighth Region.

    Bullitt East won despite shooting the ball poorly. The Chargers shots just 38.6 percent from the field and were only three of 17 from beyond the arc (17.6 percent).
