  • Kentucky State Wrestling Tourney

     LEXINGTON -- A total of 12 local wrestlers took part in the Kentucky State Wrestling Tournament last Friday and Saturday at the Alltech Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park.

    It was more a learning experience for the group which included eight wrestlers from Bullitt East and four from Bullitt Central. However, in the modified double-elimination event, the local wrestlers only recorded three victories. All three were by Bullitt East wrestlers including James Nash (right). The Chargers finished with a total of 10 team points while Bullitt Central failed to score.

  • Bombs Away! BC’s 17 threes sink Evangel

     OKOLONA – It was a record setting night for the Bullitt Central Cougars on Monday as they opened the 23rd District Tournament with a 102-57 victory over Evangel.

    The win, the 18th this season for the Cougars, moved coach Jessie Curry’s team into Wednesday night’s semi-finals where they will take on top-seeded Southern in a game set to start at 5:45 p.m. at Southern.

  • Long final week for area hoops teams

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- The final few days of the regular season for the 2017-2018 basketball campaign didn’t produce very many victories for area teams.

    In fact, last Thursday and Friday the six local teams combined to win just two of the nine contests played.

    One of the wins came on Thursday as the Bullitt East Lady Chargers played host to Central and picked up a 64-39 victory.

    The Lady Chargers got 17 points and eight rebounds from sophomore Lexi Taylor and also had 10 points by junior Emmy Ralph.

  • Local teams compete in the Region Four swimming contest

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The three Bullitt County swimming programs recently took part in the Region Four Championships at the Ralph Wright Natatorium on the University of Louisville campus.

    All three teams actually practice together under the coaching of Curtis Fuchs and Kelsey Davis and then compete under their own school banner in meets.

  • District hoops tourneys start on Monday

     LOUISVILLE – The post-season for high school basketball starts tonight across the state and district competition is scheduled for the next five nights for local teams.

    As always, there will be some expected winners and there will also be the usual flurry of upsets and tight games that make high school basketball the state’s most popular sport.

  • NB’s Johnson headed to Spalding

     HEBRON ESTATES – Her senior season was never what she dreamed about, but North Bullitt senior Ally Johnson isn’t going to let that step her dreams of playing college soccer.

    Johnson suffered a serious knee injury last summer while playing for her ‘club’ team and was forced to miss her entire senior season with the Lady Eagles. It had been hoped that Johnson would team with fellow senior Katlyn Andres on a juggernaut offensive team.

  • East easily rolls past Central

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The two programs had not met since Feb. 11 in 2014 and maybe the renewal of the rivalry could have waited another year as the Bullitt East Lady Chargers rolled past visiting Bullitt Central 75-23 on Monday.

    The rivalry had been put on hold by disagreements between the schools that were over the heads of the head coaches. Finally, last spring, superintendent Keith Davis sent out a memo requiring all Bullitt County teams to play each other during the regular season.

  • Twelve local wrestlers advance to the state finals

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – On Saturday, Bullitt Central played host to the Region Three Wrestling Championships with 13 schools taking part.

    DeSales won the overall team title with 208 points while Bullitt .East was second with 163 points. Fern Creek, the defending champions, were third with 138 points, just ahead of Valley with 136 points. Bullitt Central was fifth with 101 points.

  • East repeats as regional runner-up; BC 5th

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Despite not winning any of the 14 weight classes, the Bullitt East Chargers still managed to finish second overall in the 13-team Region Three Wrestling Tournament held on Saturday at Bullitt Central.

    Actually, Bullitt East had six wrestlers reach the championship match of the 14 weight classes, but could not pull out a victory.

  • Lady Chargers keep NB at a safe distance

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – In a much-anticipated match-up between the third- and fourth-ranked teams in the Sixth Region this season, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers kept the North Bullitt Lady Eagles in the rear view mirror for the entire game in winning 73-67 on Friday.

    The game may have been more anticipated in the north end of the county as North Bullitt was trying to break a decade long losing streak to Bullitt East. The Lady Eagles have not beaten the Lady Chargers since Feb. 3, 2006 when they won 41-36 at home.
