  • 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 entered the 2016-17 season ranked fifth in the state while Bullitt East was two spots behind the Lady Bulldogs.

    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).

  • JERICHO MILE

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Community members gathered to form a wall of support for those living with cancer.

    The Jericho Mile was held at Shepherdsville City Park to “march the walls of sickness down like the patriarchs of old.”

    Thirty attendees participated in the event, which included prayer, praise and music.

    The event also included guest speaker Betty Burchett, a Stage 4 cancer survivor who is still continuing with her recovery.

  • Dahlkamp eager to get moving as owner of Shepherdsville Chiropractic

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - New ownership has allowed a comeback of sorts for Shepherdsville Chiropractic and Rehab.

    Dr. David Dahlkamp, DC, took over as the company’s new owner as of July 1.

    Shepherdsville Chiropractic first opened for business 10 years ago and has been in its current location, at 149 Highway 44 East, for five years.

    Dahlkamp earned his chiropractic degree from Logan College in St. Louis. The family moved to Kentucky in 2006, including his wife, Cory, and their children Hunter, 12, and Ava, 10.

  • Chargers falter late; Lady Chargers roll

     BOWLING GREEN – The Bullitt East Chargers’ lack of experience may have showed a little in the season-opening game Tuesday at Warren Central High School.

    Bullitt East built a 17-point lead in the first half and still had the upper hand at 45-41 entering the fourth quarter before Warren Central rallied to win 62-57.

  • Graham scores 33 as Lady Cougars get win

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – When Josh Cravens took over the Bullitt Central girls’ basketball program in May the schedule for the upcoming season was pretty well set.

    Needless to say, if he had made the schedule, the Lady Cougars would not have opened the season Tuesday on the road at Trimble County. Bullitt Central has just one returning starter and only three players with any varsity experience while the Lady Raiders return most of its roster from the team that won the Eighth Region title a year ago.

  • Bullitt Central wins in opener of Curry era

     BEDFORD – The Jessie Curry era at Bullitt Central got off on the right foot on Tuesday as the maroon and gray went on the road and defeated Trimble County 77-51.

    An opening win might have been a little more than the ultra-young and inexperienced Cougars could have hoped for at this early stage, especially when the team’s only returning player with varsity experience, senior Danny Goldsmith, was held to just four points after going to bench after two early fouls.

  • NB wins, but Dunnavan to miss some action

     NEW CASTLE – Battling the limited availability of its leading returning scorer, Travis Dunnavan, the North Bullitt Eagles still managed to open the season with a road win, beating Henry County 58-46.

    Dunnavan missed the team’s two scrimmages with a hyper-extended knee, but he was in uniform for the first game of the season. Head coach Korey Craddock didn’t start the senior, but early in the first half Dunnavan entered the game and scored 17 of his team-high 22 points before halftime as the Eagles bolted to an eight-point advantage.

  • BE’s Renneisen all Aces with Evansville softball

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – No doubt about it. Bullitt East softball standout Lindsey Renneisen was all ‘Aces’ with Evansville University.

    It was over a year ago that the Lady Charger senior committed to the ‘Aces’ and then a few weeks ago she made it all official, signing the NCAA Division I paperwork with the school in a ceremony in the Bullitt East Media Center.

    Even with the early commitment, Renneisen never wavered from wanting to play for Evansville.

  • LIGHT UP LJ

     LEBANON JUNCTION — A cold night was made warmer by Christmas lights and hot chocolate at the annual Light Up Lebanon Junction celebration.

    The night started with the lighting of the Lebanon Junction Memorial Park.

    Residents then followed Santa down to the Wall Street Park where individual displays were set up, including a memorial section for loved ones.

    The Lebanon Junction Parks Committee passed out hot chocolate and cookies and Santa was available for pictures and to hear the children’s wish lists.
