  • East wins two state cheer titles

     LEXINGTON - It was a banner day on Saturday for the Bullitt East cheerleading program as a pair of Charger teams brought home titles from the Kentucky High School Cheerleading State Championships held at the Alltech Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park.

    It is the first KHSAA State Cheerleading Championships for Bullitt East, although, they do have one national title.

    First off on Saturday, Bullitt East won the All-Girl Small (based on the number of girls on the team) with a score of 271.1. That narrowly edged out runner-up LaRue County which had 269.1 points.

  • Oh what a week of hoops ahead

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Basketballs will be bouncing all over Kentucky later this week as the first weekend of ‘holiday’ basketball tournaments will be in full swing.

    The biggest of the events has the Bullitt East Chargers returning to play in the King of the Bluegrass Holiday Tournament, the top in-state tournament during the holidays. Play will start on Friday but the Chargers will not entry the fray until Saturday.

  • Eagles turn up defensive pressure on Cougars

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Defense was the name of the game on Friday as North Bullitt and Bullitt Central put the clamps on each other before the green and gold pulled out a 46-31 victory in the first of two regular season meetings between the two rivals this winter.

    It is the game on Jan. 9 at North Bullitt that will be used for the seeding process for the 23rd District Tournament that will be played at the end of February at Bullitt Central.

  • Lady Eagles move to 4-0 with victory

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – In a battle of undefeated teams, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles showed they are still the team to beat in the 23rd District as they overcame some serious foul trouble to beat Bullitt Central 56-47 on Friday.

    While this win was very satisfying for the green and gold, this was just a warm-up contest for the two teams in the district race. It will be the meeting at North Bullitt on Jan. 9 that will be used to help seed the district tournament that will be played at Bullitt Central at the end of February.

  • North rolls past two Oldham County teams

    HEBRON ESTATES – You couldn’t blame the North Bullitt Eagles if there wasn’t a big sigh of relief on Tuesday after the green and gold beat visiting South Oldham 76-57.

         Following an opening week to the season that saw the team lose two games and one starter to injury, North Bullitt got to play at home for the first time and put together a strong effort to beat South Oldham, the Eighth Region champions a year ago.

  • BC sweeps important district games from Southern

    SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Joe Pat Lee liked the grit and toughness of his team.

  • Bearettes rally in third frame for 68-54 win

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – A good half does not make for a good game.

         The Bullitt East Lady Chargers learned that on Tuesday after falling to defending state champion Butler 68-54 despite leading 32-28 at halftime.

  • Chargers just sick over loss to the Bears

    MOUNT WASHINGTON – For only the second time in the last five years, the Bullitt East Chargers lost a game at home on Tuesday and they were just sick about it.

         Literally.

         While head coach Bob Blackburn didn’t want to make excuses, it was obvious that his team was going through a bout of the flu as they took the court against Sixth Region rival Butler. The Bears took advantage of the opening and despite entering the game with a 1-2 record, the visitors left with a 61-57 victory.

  • Lady Chargers have tough weekend

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Bullitt East Lady Charger head coach Chris Stallings said before the season that his team was going to play a challenging schedule this year and that certainly proved to be the case on the opening weekend as the red and gold dropped a pair of games.

    On Friday, against Seventh Region power Male, a team ranked just ahead of the Lady Chargers in the pre-season coaches’ poll, Bullitt East faded late and lost 75-56.

  • Bullitt County cheerleaders win four Sixth Region titles, now head to state

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – There are some great rivalries in Bullitt County. We all know that.

    One that doesn’t perhaps get the Friday night attention of some of those sports is cheerleading. Bullitt Central and Bullitt East have been battling it out for years and North Bullitt has recently risen in the competitive circles.

    Over the past two years, all three programs have had high finishes at both the regional, state and national level.
