  • East starts LIT play Tuesday

    LOUISVILLE - The revamped Boys’ Louisville Invitational Tournament will start tonight with a new format and only one team from outside of Jefferson County - the Bullitt East Chargers.

    This will be the fourth trip to the LIT for the Chargers, but the first time that they will be there on equal footing with all the other teams. The three previous trips all had Bullitt East as one of the four ‘invited’ teams.

    This is the first season in which the Chargers became part of the pool of teams eligible for the tournament from the Sixth and Seventh Regions.

  • Athletic teams get the best of BE

    SHELBYVILLE - The Bullitt East Chargers have already proven this year that they can compete against teams with better athletic talent.

    They did that on the second weekend of the regular season when they stunned visiting Shelby County in overtime to win 85-79. They did that by playing hard for almost every second of a 32-minute game.

  • Cougars struggle on Lexington trip

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Bullitt Central’s shooting woes continued last week as the team spent three days in Lexington taking part in the Sayre Holiday Classic, a 4-team round-robin event that was eventually won by the host team.

    As has been the case in recent weeks, the Cougars struggled to find the range shooting the ball. The tournament started with the maroon and gray connecting on 20 percent of its shots, then 25 percent in the second game before the team did connect on 37 percent of its shots.

  • Lady Eagles come up short offensively in their own tourney

    HEBRON ESTATES - Amber Courtney knows that rebuilding the North Bullitt Lady Eagle basketball program will be a gradual process.

    With only two seniors and one junior on the roster, Courtney is prepared for a few potholes in the rebuilding path.

    But after playing seven games in a 10-day period, Courtney is seeing some positive signs in her young Eagles.

    That optimism comes after the team had just lost all three games it played in its own First Citizens Bank Classic.

  • East, North broadsided by district news from KHSAA

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - In one of the strangest, and most unexpected, moves handed down by the Kentucky High School Athletic Association (KHSAA), Bullitt East and North Bullitt suddenly find themselves sitting in a six-team football district for next season.

    The news came in an email early last week from Julian Tackett of the KHSAA office announcing that because of the new high school in Shelby County, Martha Layne Collins High School, that both of the schools in Shelbyville will immediately move to Class 4-A.

  • Lady Eagles struggle with a tight schedule

    HEBRON ESTATES - Too many games in too many days caught up with the North Bullitt Lady Eagles before Christmas as they tried to squeeze the South Oldham Lady Dragon Hoopfest Tournament around a key game against Bullitt Central.

    First-year North Bullitt head coach Amber Courtney has already said she won’t try that again.

    The Lady Dragon tournament games were played on Thursday, Saturday and Monday before Christmas. North Bullitt then filled in that Friday with the emotional game against Bullitt Central.

  • Chargers stay red hot in winning Edmonson event

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - If it was possible, the Bullitt East Chargers got even hotter just before the Christmas break as they won three games and the title in the Rafferty’s Caveland Classic at Edmonson County High School.

    The three victories moved the young Chargers to 9-1 for the season, an impressive record for a team with just two seniors and basically no returning starters from a year ago. The wins pushed the teams winning streak to nine games after they opened the season with a loss at Franklin County.

  • Spencer steals title in Barger Memorial tourney

    HEBRON ESTATES - Three games in three days offered Lee Barger and Joe Pat Lee a perfect opportunity to see where their respective teams were at near the mid-way point in the season.

    And after completing the inaugural Sarah Major Barger Memorial Tournament at North Bullitt, both had reasons to smile.

    North Bullitt finished second

    In the eight-team tournament, the host Eagles won its first two games before falling to Spencer County 71-55 in the championship game Wednesday night.

  • Lady Cougars come up just short

    LOUISVILLE - Bullitt Central Lady Cougar head coach Bryan Bates saw a little bit of everything from his team last week in the Doss Lady Dragon Holiday Classic.

    There was the good, the bad and the ugly, as well as some beauty as the maroon and gray reached the championship game before falling to Breckinridge County 45-42.

    The Lady Cougars had the ball at the end of the game, but could not get off a shot in the last 13 seconds.
