  • NB wins, but Dunnavan to miss some action

     NEW CASTLE – Battling the limited availability of its leading returning scorer, Travis Dunnavan, the North Bullitt Eagles still managed to open the season with a road win, beating Henry County 58-46.

    Dunnavan missed the team’s two scrimmages with a hyper-extended knee, but he was in uniform for the first game of the season. Head coach Korey Craddock didn’t start the senior, but early in the first half Dunnavan entered the game and scored 17 of his team-high 22 points before halftime as the Eagles bolted to an eight-point advantage.

  • BE’s Renneisen all Aces with Evansville softball

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – No doubt about it. Bullitt East softball standout Lindsey Renneisen was all ‘Aces’ with Evansville University.

    It was over a year ago that the Lady Charger senior committed to the ‘Aces’ and then a few weeks ago she made it all official, signing the NCAA Division I paperwork with the school in a ceremony in the Bullitt East Media Center.

    Even with the early commitment, Renneisen never wavered from wanting to play for Evansville.

  • Despite heavy losses, Eagles ready to fly

     HEBRON ESTATES – Every coach expects graduation losses, that is just part of coaching high school sports.

    What coaches don’t like is when athletes transfer out the day before pre-season practice is set to start.

    North Bullitt head coach Korey Craddock got both the expected and the unexpected since the end of last season.

  • Deel ready to lead Lady Eagles to big year

     HEBRON ESTATES – As the North Bullitt Lady Eagles get ready to open the 2016-17 season on Saturday with a game at Shelby County against Martha Layne Collins High School, the starters and rotation are starting to fall into place for head coach David Marion.

    After suffering some key graduation losses, including four of the top six players from a year ago, there were plenty of openings for players who wanted to work hard and impress the coaching staff in the pre-season.

  • No starters return, but high hopes for BE still

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – Many have played a little. None have played a lot.

    On a team that lost all five starters from a year ago, that is about as much good news as could be expected for first-year Bullitt East head coach Jason Couch.

  • East’s Glass signs to play volleyball at IUS

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – For almost a year, Bullitt East middle blocker Savannah Glass knew exactly where she was going to college both for academics and volleyball.

    It just took until recently for all the details to be worked out. That allowed the powerful 6-2 player at the net to sign with Indiana University Southeast during a fall signing ceremony in the Bullitt East Media Center on Nov. 16.

  • Lady Chargers to be among state’s elite

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – The old saying goes ‘it is darkest before the dawn.’

    Well, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers have gone through plenty of darkness during the fall, but there is still plenty of optimism that the team can put together the remaining pieces to field one of the best teams in the state.

    Many of the state’s coaches have agreed, recently ranking the Lady Chargers seventh in the state in pre-season polls.

  • Castle ready for soccer career at Georgetown

        MOUNT WASHINGTON – Bullitt East senior Kelsey Castle may not have had Georgetown College at the top of her list when the process started, but after one visit to the school, Castle moved the Tigers to the number one spot on her destination list.
        That was a few months ago and last Wednesday, Castle made it all official, signing an NAIA letter of intent with Georgetown and head coach Leah Crews Castleman.

  • North’s Deel caps off the process with the signing

        HEBRON ESTATES — For Lauren Deel, her athletic career at North Bullitt High School continues to progress.
        Both a track and a basketball star, Deel begins her senior season on the hardwood with high hopes.
        An All-Region hoops performer, Deel will now be the center of attention on a team that has won the 23rd District title every year she has played.

  • Cougars will grow around 6-5 Goldsmith

        SHEPHERDSVILLE – New Bullitt Central boys’ basketball coach Jessie Curry is most definitely, young, aggressive and enthusiastic when it comes to leading the Cougars, but he is also realistic.
        After taking over for former head coach Joe Pat Lee, who he worked with for six years, Curry looked at the team’s returning prospects and quickly understood that his first job was building for the future.
