  • BC turns around sour season with three wins

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Just when it looked like the Bullitt Central Cougars were toast, the maroon and gray turned the season around over a seven-day span, winning three of four games and gaining momentum and excitement for a late run into the post-season.

    Even the one loss, a 76-75 overtime setback to DeSales in the King of the Bluegrass Showcase on Saturday, had a number of positive points. The Cougars played without senior Chase Craddock, who was off on a football recruiting trip.

  • Eagles win three, drop one during busy hoops week

     HEBRON ESTATES – While the girls in the area were taking up most of the attention last week with the Louisville Invitational Tournament, the North Bullitt boys stepped outside of Jefferson County for four games in an eight-day span.

    First, it was back-to-back games against a pair of Oldham County teams. The Eagles actually beat the better of the two teams on the road as they rallied late to beat South Oldham 59-54 last Monday. A night later, at home, the Eagles came out on the short end of a 70-61 decision to North Oldham.

  • Region 3 Bowling Tournament

     LOUISVILLE -- There was no shortage of action last week at the Region 3 Bowling Tournament at Ken Bowl Lanes.

    On Thursday, the boys’ team competition was held, but it was a tough day for the three Bullitt County teams as none moved past the quarter-finals.

    It was a bigger day on Tuesday as the Bullitt East Lady Chargers upset defending champion Pleasure Ridge Park in the semi-finals before falling to Mercy in the final. That earned the team a spot in next week’s Kentucky State Tournament in Lexington.

  • Hot outside shooting lifts BE to easy win

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Some times things just fall perfectly into place.

    That was the situation for Bullitt East and Meade County last week as they got to play on Tuesday, albeit, four days later than previously planned.

    Even before the big winter storm hit, the two schools had been in contact and discovered that if they couldn’t play on Friday, which they couldn’t with almost a foot of snow, that both teams had the following Tuesday open. Even before the snow started piling up, the decision was made to move the game back four days.

  • Stat sheet yes; final score no for Lady Eagles

     LOUISVILLE – The stat sheet looked just fine, but the final score trumped that for the North Bullitt Lady Eagles on Tuesday as the green and gold dropped a 68-60 decision to Christian Academy in the opening game of the Republic Bank/Coca-Cola Girls’ Louisville Invitational Tournament at Bellarmine University.

  • No Peak, no valley for East in win over Panthers

     LOUISVILLE – The incredible shrinking basketball team picked up another win on Tuesday as the Bullitt East Lady Chargers rolled past Pleasure Ridge Park 58-41 in the opening round of the Republic Bank/Coca-Cola Girls’ Louisville Invitational Tournament at Bellarmine University.

  • Poor shooting costs East chance at late rally

     LOUISVILLE – An offensive power outage in the second half kept Bullitt East from making any kind of run at the Male Lady Bulldogs on Wednesday in the second round of the Republic Bank/Coca-Cola Louisville Invitational Tournament at Bellarmine University.

    Scoring just four baskets after halftime, Bullitt East dropped a 65-42 decision to the state’s fourth-ranked team.

  • Bullitt Countian Myers to play softball for Bresica U.

      BARDSTOWN -- When Megan Myers joined the Bethlehem softball squad as a sophomore, she brought a gritty toughness and versatility to the team that helped push the Banshees over the edge and to the top of the district heap.

    Myers has anchored the Banshees’ defense at shortstop since her arrival, and as the team’s top hitter and fastest player, she’s a terror for opposing teams as a tablesetter for the Bethlehem offense.

  • BE’s McKinley headed to Brescia U. to play baseball

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Getting the chance to get in on the ground floor of something special was just the right sales pitch for Bullitt East pitcher Kyle McKinley when he sat down with Brescia head coach Andrew Dickson.

    A first-year head coach who is returning to the school where he played his final two seasons of college baseball, Dickson sold McKinley on the chance to help turnaround a program that fell to an 18-35 mark last season.

    McKinley made it all official recently when he signed with the NAIA school in Owensboro.

  • NB’s Downey surpasses 2,000 points

     Before a home game last week with Southern, North Bullitt senior Katie Downey was honored for scoring 2,000 career points by head coach David Marion.

    Downey, who has signed with Bellarmine University, has been a part of the Lady Eagle program since she was in the sixth grade.
