  • Chargers win two OT thriller over J-town

    MOUNT WASHINGTON – For two teams that will meet again in two weeks in a more important match-up, the Bullitt East Chargers and the Jeffersontown Chargers went at it tooth and nail on Tuesday in the regular season meeting between the two 24th District rivals.

    This was the first meeting between the two squads since Jeffersontown beat Bullitt East 70-64 in last year’s district tournament semi-finals.

  • East wins fourth straight Bullitt Cup

     Bullitt East continued its run of Bullitt Cup titles on Wednesday, beating their two county rivals for the fourth straight season.

    Bullitt East did not lose a match in beating North Bullitt and after Bullitt Central beat North Bullitt, the Chargers got the best of the Cougars 60-9.

    All three local teams will compete in the Region Three tournament on Saturday at Bullitt Central starting at 9 a.m.

  • Bullitt County trio headed to state bowling tourney

     LOUISVILLE – A trio of Bullitt County bowlers put in strong performances at the Region Three Championships at Ken Bowl Lanes last Tuesday to qualify for this week’s state championships.

    North Bullitt junior Kyle Reed rallied over the last two games to reach the step ladder portion of the competition and then finished third overall.

  • Cougars get a tight win over Wolverines

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Earlier in the week, Bullitt Central head coach Jessie Curry said he was looking for someone who could be a consistent shot maker.

    On Friday, the second-year coach may have found some playmakers.

    Trey Kearney and Chander Ocasio led a big fourth-quarter spurt to push the Cougars past Western Hills 56-53.

    Curry called Kearney the missing key to a successful post-season run.

    “Tonight, he showed what he could do,” said Curry.

  • Lady Cougars fall on homecoming

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- It’s been the story of many games this season.

    The Bullitt Central Lady Cougars have played well in the first half. But then the effects of having a very, very young team sets in.

    Such was the case on Friday in a 71-45 loss to visiting Western Hills.

    Down 37-30 at intermission, head coach Josh Cravens saw his team score just seven points in the third quarter.

  • Hoops into the homestretch

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- It was far from the most challenging weekend of the season, but the North Bullitt Lady Eagles can only play the team on the opposite bench and they did that well in two games over the weekend.

    On Friday, coach David Marion’s team made the short trip to Fairdale and beat the Lady Bulldogs 77-25.

    The green and gold shot 57.6 percent for the game in rolling to the win. The team also made five three-pointers.

    The only negative was 40 percent shooting at the foul line.

  • Hot start fuels Fern Creek past Chargers

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Sometimes, no matter what you do or how well you play, victory is just not in the cards.

    That was certainly the case for the Bullitt East Chargers as they took the court in a highly anticipated rematch with Fern Creek. It had been less than three weeks earlier that the two Sixth Region rivals had battled to the end before the Tigers claimed a 52-50 win in the quarter-finals of the Boys’ Louisville Invitational Tournament.

  • BE girls best Fern Creek in first meeting

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Already knowing that there will be a second meeting, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers made the most of the first meeting on Tuesday as they beat visiting Fern Creek 58-47.

    With Mercy already the number one seed, Bullitt East and Fern Creek were battling for the second and third spots in the 24th District seeding process. No matter the outcome of the first meeting, the two will be playing in the second semi-final of the post-season tournament the week of Feb. 19 at Fern Creek.

  • Lady Eagles get back in the saddle with two wins

     HEBRON ESTATES — When Cassidy Bishop drilled a three-pointer in the corner to open the fourth quarter, the North Bullitt bench erupted.

    That was the kind of reaction Lady Eagle head coach David Marion was looking for.

    He wanted to see his team have fun on the court.

    After a stretch in January where there didn’t seem to be a lot of fun or energy, North Bullitt came out of that funk with a 74-25 victory over a very young Bullitt Central squad.

  • Eagles record second win of season over BC

    HEBRON ESTATES — Lance Johnson and his North Bullitt teammates came out on fire Tuesday night.

    And when things got a little tight down the stretch, Johnson made sure there would be no letdown.

    For the second time this season, the Eagles turned back the Bullitt Central Cougars. This time, it was the home fans who got to enjoy the 53-41 victory.

    Johnson scored eight points in the first quarter as North Bullitt ran out to an 19-5 lead as T.J. Toney hit a trey just before the buzzer.

    The lead was 27-17 at intermission.
