  • BE girls get needed court time

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - The final record wasn't exactly what head coach Chris Stallings was looking for, but the Bullitt East Lady Chargers got a lot of much-needed court time last week playing in the Vision First/Bullitt East Classic.

        The good news for Stallings was that the team played its best game at the end.

  • Lady Eagles still learning how to win close contests

        HEBRON ESTATES - The young North Bullitt Lady Eagles continue to learn on the fly, but finding ways of winning close ball games is a tough lesson to grasp at times.

        Both of the losses saw the Lady Eagles fail to take advantage of opportunities in the fourth quarter that could have led to victories.
