  • Frustration! 7-point fourth quarter sinks BE

     VALLEY STATION – The worst quarter of the season cost the Bullitt East Chargers dearly on Friday as the red and gold fell 54-49 to the St. Xavier Tigers.

    A seven-point fourth quarter ousted the Chargers in the quarterfinals of the Republic Bank Boys’ Louisville Invitational Tournament.

    Bullitt East opened the game with a 10-2 surge and didn’t trail until the fourth quarter. The Chargers were up 42-36 entering the final frame when the offense suddenly stopped producing.

  • Lady Cougars end tough week with lopsided win

     OKOLONA – At the end of a long week for the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars, there was a light at the end of the tunnel as the maroon and gray had some fun on Friday in defeating Moore 61-22.

    The week had started with a loss at Taylor County, a team that the Lady Cougars had beaten earlier in the season.

    Then, the team learned over the next few days that senior Lexi Graham would have very limited availability for the rest of the season because of her surgically-repaired knee. 

  • Lady Eagles suffer fourth loss, three on Saturdays

     FAIRDALE -- They’ve responded before after a bad outing.

    And North Bullitt head coach David Marion expects his Lady Eagles will respond once again.

    But that response will come after a pretty ugly outing on Saturday in the New Year Exposure Classic at Fairdale High School.

    What the Lady Eagles exposed, Marion hopes to not see in the future.

    From the opening tip to the ending horn, North Bullitt gave a flat performance in a 62-38 loss to Glasgow.

  • BE girls stay hot, win two more

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East Lady Chargers picked up consecutive wins four and five over the weekend and the team has not won eight of its last nine contests with the only loss being a five point setback to Male, the state’s third ranked team.

    On Friday, coach Chris Stallings’ team got 23 points and 11 rebounds from junior Raegan Williams as they beat visiting Fern Creek 58-43 in a game between 24th District rivals.

  • Bombs Away! Eagles get the best of PRP

     LOUISVILLE -- In the small confines of the Whitefield Academy gym, it wasn’t difficult to hear the displeasure of veteran Pleasure Ridge Park coach Dale Mabry.

    But what may have been less apparent was the smile on the face of North Bullitt’s Korey Craddock on Saturday.

    In the Whitefield Down Syndrome Classic, the Eagles shot their way to a 75-66 victory over perennial Sixth Region powers PRP.

    But the game was not that close.

  • BE faces Butler in LIT opener on Wednesday

     MOUNT WASHINGTON -- After crushing Whitefield Academy 87-32 on Friday, the Bullitt East Chargers will return to the court on Wednesday to battle Butler in the second round of the 69th annual Republic Bank Louisville Invitational Tournament.

    Butler (7-7) earned the right for a second meeting with the Chargers this season as they pulled out a 44-41 win over Western on Monday in the opening round of the Boys’ LIT.

    The Bullitt East-Butler game will be the fourth game of the day on Wednesday and is slated to start at 8:30 p.m.

  • BC cannot find consistency

      OKOLONA – To say the least, the Bullitt Central Cougars have been inconsistent this season – overall.

    On Friday, against 23rd District rival Moore, the Cougars were inconsistent within a game. Bullitt Central trailed by as many as 20 points in the third quarter but then managed to battle all the way back to within five points twice in the final 90 seconds only to finally lose 61-54.

    The setback was the ninth in a row for the Cougars since a 3-1 start to the season.

  • Tough start to the week for both Central teams

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – There were only a limited number of games early last week as students returned to school after the two-week Christmas break.

    Unfortunately, the only two games over the first three days of last week ended up being frustrating losses for the two Bullitt Central programs.

  • East and North squads earn berths in Girls’ LIT tourney

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – Bullitt East and North Bullitt learned on Thursday that they will be part of the Republic Bank/Coca-Cola Girls’ Louisville Invitational Tournament Jan. 26-30.

    Bullitt East, which had won seven of its past eight games heading into play over the weekend, earned the number seven seed overall and will take on 10th-seeded Pleasure Ridge Park on Tuesday, Jan. 26, at Bellarmine University’s Knight’s Hall.

  • NB and BE on a collision course in this week’s LIT

    The 69th annual Republic Bank Boys’ Louisville Invitational Tournament will dominate the high school landscape this week with five days of play starting on Monday.

    All of the games in this year’s event will be played at Valley High School.

    The two Bullitt County teams in the field will not enter play until the second and third day, respectively.
