     SHEPHERDSVILLE—It’s the annual dance that makes everyone over the age of 13 feel welcome.

    The 9th annual Otaku Ball, hosted by the Bullitt County Public Library, brought together over 50 anime fans for a pre-Valentine’s party.

    Participants were encouraged to cosplay (dressing up as a character) and awards were given out for the favorites. William Huey and Kirsten Kirchner were awarded the coveted Emperor and Empress titles.

  • Teams are getting ready

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – During the final week of the regular season, the thoughts of area basketball coaches is more on preparation than domination as all thoughts are focused on the upcoming post-season play when every team will start with a 0-0 record.

    On Tuesday, the Bullitt Central Cougars played at home against Fairdale, a team that just a week earlier had taken Bullitt East to double overtime before losing. This time the Bulldogs just needed regulation time and beat the Cougars 68-49.

    Homecoming? Check.

    Senior Night? Check.

    National Guard Game of the Week? Check.

    Beating Elizabethtown? Check.

    Check Mate!

    Bullitt East did all of that and even some more on Thursday as the Chargers played host to visiting Elizabethtown. There was a whole lot going on but when the evening was finally over, the Chargers had closed out the regular season with an 81-63 victory.

  • REMINDER: Schools are open Friday

     Bullitt County Public Schools reminds all students and families that classes will be in session on Friday, Feb. 17.

    The date was originally scheduled as an off day; however, it was also designated as a make-up day in the event of a snow day cancellation.

    Friday is now the make-up date for the January snow day cancellation.

    BCPS will still be closed Monday, Feb. 20, in commemoration of Presidents Day, and Tuesday, Feb. 21, for a scheduled teacher planning day.

  • East sweeps North in rivalry

     HEBRON ESTATES – Midway through the second quarter of Friday’s intra-county girls’ showdown between Bullitt East and North Bullitt, Lady Eagle head coach David Marion had seen enough.

    Often a coach who stalks the sidelines and barks out plays and encouragement, on this night Marion had already seen enough. For the rest of the game he took a seat, only rarely getting up to signalin substitutes.

  • Chargers jump ahead early in win

     HEBRON ESTATES – Holding arch-rival North Bullitt to just 11 points in the first half and 24 points through three quarters, the Bullitt East Chargers won for the second time in as many nights on Friday, securing a 63-47 win.

    Often in basketball, offense and defense is in the eye of the beholder. Bullitt East fans could point to a strong defensive performance as the reason for the North Bullitt scoring woes. Conversely, North Bullitt fans were frustrated at the output from the offense.
