  • East at Shelby on Friday for district crown

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – With at least one play-off game at home already in the bag, the Bullitt East Chargers will have the opportunity on Friday to add a possible second home game as well as a district championship when they travel to Shelby County.

    Despite a loss to North Bullitt two weeks ago, Shelby County is also in charge of its own destiny as they can claim the district title with a win over Bullitt East and get two home games in November.

  • Coaching situation at Bullitt East has no winners

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The news last week that Bullitt East boys’ basketball coach John Hunt had resigned from that post before ever coaching a game was a decision that was in everyone’s best interest.

He pleaded not guilty the next day and then in a meeting with Bullitt East principal Willie Foster stepped down from the job that he had held since June.
