  • Chargers must battle on through painful injuries

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - While the final score of 63-12 was bad, the ramifications of last Friday’s loss to Holy Cross could well be felt deep into this season for the Bullitt East Chargers.

    Friday’s bad news was followed by worse news on Monday as Charger head coach Doug Preston got the medical reports. At least three starters will be out for the next month and there could be a fourth. This on a Class 4-A team that was already playing without two starters before the season even began.

  • College students can learn to make, save money

    Know your bank balance

        While you’re in college, it’s important to carefully monitor your spending.

        You should know your general bank balance each time you make a transaction, because if you try to debit money that isn’t there, you will bounce a check or your card will deny the purchase.

        By balancing your account every month, you can keep track of your money and any bank fees, sometimes even spotting a rare error.

  • Chargers have no answers for Holy Cross' quick start

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - Hit in the mouth on the opening play of the game, the Bullitt East Chargers never got up off the mat on Friday, falling to the Holy Cross Cougars 63-12 in a beat down eerily similar to the 63-15 loss at Shelby County a year ago.

    Holy Cross, one of the top teams in Class A, jumped on top 21-0 before Bullitt East could manage a first down and then cruised to their second straight win to open the season.

    The loss dropped the Chargers to 1-1 heading into another meeting with a west end Catholic school when Bullitt East faces DeSales this Friday.
