  • BC’s Saunders finishes 6th in 195-pound class

     LEXINGTON – The last name was the same but the first names changed for Bullitt Central on the podium over the weekend at the Kentucky High School Wrestling Championships at the Alltech Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park.

    On Saturday, Cougar senior Mark Saunders was on the podium as the sixth place finisher in the 195-pound division. A year ago, it was his twin brother, Michael, who finished seventh at 182-pounds.

  • Home sweet Homecoming for the Cougars

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – Unlike some spots, there comes a time in a basketball game where the players have to make players and the coaches sit quietly on the sidelines.

  • Sharpe explodes for 45 points

     ASHLAND - The Bullitt East Chargers hit the road on Saturday for a trip to Ashland and the long bus trip didn’t have any negative effect on Charger sophomore guard Tyler Sharpe as he exploded for 45 points as the red and gold bombed Boyd County 91-77.

    Sharpe connected on seven three-pointers in the win.

    “Boyd County had a hard time containing him,” Bullitt East head coach Bob Blackburn said later. “Plus, his teammates did a nice job of finding him.”

  • Alcorn alternate to state swim meet

     LOUISVILLE – Bullitt County’s high school swimming program took part on Friday and Saturday in the Region II Swimming and Diving Championships at the Ralph Wright Natatorium on the University of Louisville campus.

  • Lane 13 proves bad luck to the Cougars

     LEXINGTON – The number 13 was certainly a bad number for the Bullitt Central boys’ bowling team on Friday at the Ebonite/Kentucky State Championships at Collins Eastland Bowling Center in Lexington.

    After qualifying fifth out of the 16 teams in the early bowling, the Cougars advanced to the quarter-finals with a 3-1 victory over Apollo High School. That set up a match with Scott County to be played on lanes 13 and 14.

  • Saunders brothers fuel Cougars to fourth

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After some down seasons, the Bullitt Central wrestling program is making strides to once again be a regional and state contender.

    That was certainly the point on Saturday as the Cougars finished fourth in the Region Three event which was contested at North Bullitt.

    Bullitt Central finished with 124 points, fueled by the strong finishes of senior brothers Mark Saunders who won the 195-pound division and Michael Saunders who finished second at 182-pounds.

  • Lady Cougars’ remarkable run beat Holy Cross

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Rallying from 18 points down in the final six minutes of the game, the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars forced overtime and then beat visiting Holy Cross on Friday in a stunning turn of events for the maroon and gray.

    Bullitt Central was down 54-36 with under six minutes remaining in the game before going on a 20-2 run to tie the game at 56-56 at the end of regulation. The final points came on a three-pointer by sophomore Lexi Graham with just four seconds remaining on the clock.

  • Cougars play well until the end collapses

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – For 30 minutes on Friday, the Bullitt Central Cougars put forth a strong effort against visiting Holy Cross, a team that just a night earlier, had stunned ninth-ranked Pleasure Ridge Park by four points.

    Unfortunately, high school basketball games last 32 minutes. The maroon and gray struggled over the last two minutes, surrendering a 44-40 lead before falling 48-46. The Cougars did not get a shot over the final 60 seconds.

  • BC boys stun PRP, then take regional title

      LOUISVILLE – There is nothing better than beating your number one rival.

    The feeling is even better when you beat your number one rival in a best of five format after trailing 0-2.

    The Bullitt Central boys’ bowling team did just that in the Region 3 Tournament recently at Fern Valley Strike and Spare, rallying from a big hole to defeat arch-rival Pleasure Ridge Park in the tourney semi-finals. A year ago, PRP had beaten Bullitt Central in the final.

  • Borah, Clark post top four finishes in regional

     LOUISVILLE – The ending wasn’t exactly what Jared Borah was looking for, but the whole package worked out just fine last Thursday as the Bullitt Central sophomore finished third at the Region 3 Boys’ Bowling Tournament, qualifying for this Thursday’s Kentucky State Bowling Tournament in Lexington.

    Borah will be joined by North Bullitt’s Logan Clark who finished fourth, earning the final qualifying spot in Lexington.
