  • The year of the twin in hoops

      SHEPHERSVILLE – Nobody loves the fact that basketball players have numbers on their uniforms more than me.

    There are no fewer than four pairs of twins in Bullitt County basketball this season and three sets of twins are playing key roles for their teams.

  • Second Chances program 'Batty for Bats'

     MOUNT WASHINGTON — Students throughout the county were prepared for Dracula and his friends thanks for Second Chances Wildlife Center and the Bullitt County Public Libraries.

    Throughout the month of October, Second Chances founder Brigette Williams visited the libraries to educate residents on bats as part of BCPL’s “Batty for Bats” program.

    Williams informed them that vampire bats don’t really turn into vampires and the bats found in Kentucky are from the microbat category, which mostly feed on smaller things like insects.

  • Icy conditions close down schools

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - When the superintendent of schools gets stuck on an icy hill, you can bet that he’s not going to put others at risk.

  • Big third quarter lifts North past Central

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – A two-point lead for North Bullitt at halftime expanded to double-digits early in the second half and the Eagles went onto beat arch-rival Bullitt Central 62-51 on Friday in the first of the two meetings between the teams this winter.

    North Bullitt opened the third quarter with an 11-3 surge that moved to 15-5 late in the third frame. The Eagles were up 42-31 entering the fourth quarter and Bullitt Central could get no closer than six points (44-38) the rest of the way.

  • Lady Eagles have no trouble with Central

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – There were no surprises on Friday as the North Bullitt Lady Eagles rolled to a 63-21 victory over Bullitt Central in a contest that was as lopsided as the final score would indicate.

    North Bullitt rolled big despite the fact that senior guard Hailey Free, who has signed with Pikeville, missed the game after suffering a sprained ankle two nights earlier in a win over Fern Creek. Lady Eagle head coach David Marion was expecting Free to take the court again over the weekend in a game against South Laurel.
