  • Bullitt East Cheer success

     The goal is to once again bring  home a national cheerleading title.

    En route to that competition in February in Orlando, the Bullitt East small cheer squad won its regional competition and then finished fourth in the state KHSAA cheerleading competition recently in Lexington.

    Coach Nate Fulghum said the core group of girls are well-rounded in all areas of the routine and that allows the squad to have a high degree of difficulty.

  • BC wins Nelson County Invitational

     BARDSTOWN – It’s not often that a team can claim the championship trophy of a holiday tournament before the final night of action begins.

  • BE sweeps South Carolina

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East Lady Chargers rank among the top teams in Kentucky this season, but they might well be the best team in South Carolina.

  • 2013 - The Year in Review

     As coaches are often fond of saying - ‘it was a good year, but it was not a great year.’

    It wasn’t until December that there was a KHSAA State Championship when Bullitt Central brought home the Co-Ed Cheerleading title.

    That makes five straight ‘years’ in which Bullitt County athletes have brought home a state title.

    There were a few runner-up finishes at the State Track and Field championships including two by junior Meghan Roby.

  • St. Catharine nabs pair of softball players from NB

     HEBRON ESTATES – St. Catharine University softball coach Holly Smith killed two birds with one stone recently, when she signed North Bullitt softball standouts Elise Mills and Carly Benz on the same day.

    In fact, Smith and her assistant coaches have found the way to Bullitt County a number of times this year. A few weeks earlier, St. Catharine assistant coach Felicia Smith (the two coaches are not related) was in Mount Washington getting the signature of Bullitt East catcher Kelsey Gravens.

  • Vision First event at East highlights first holiday events

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – With the way the holidays fell this year, namely Christmas and New Year’s Day on a Wednesday, as well as the way the school breaks were lined-up, the traditional holiday basketball tournaments are a little more spread out this winter as there are basically three different times for the tournaments.

    In addition, because of the scheduling, two teams, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles and the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars, opted to participate in only one holiday tournament this season.

  • Lady Eagles topple Assumption

     HEBRON ESTATES – A little smoke wasn’t going to deter the North Bullitt Lady Eagles from the biggest regular season win in school history on Saturday as the green and gold stunned visiting Assumption 43-41 in the first game of the annual Bullitt County Challenge.

    In the three game Challenge, played at North Bullitt this season, the Lady Eagles picked up a win as did Bullitt East as they cruised past Grayson County 56-39. Keeping it from being a sweep for the local teams was Lexington Catholic’s lopsided victory over Bullitt Central.

  • BE wins sixth straight

     Bullitt East won for the sixth straight time to open the season on Saturday when they pulled away from a 37-37 halftime tie to beat Shelby County 68-52 in the Mike Casey Classic at Shelby County.

    The Bullitt East defense turned it around at halftime, holding the Rockets to eight points in the third quarter and just seven points in the fourth quarter.

  • NB rallies, but Central prevails on Friday

     HEBRON ESTATES – After watching Bullitt Central score the first 11 points of the game, lead by 25-15 at halftime before surging ahead 39-22 late in the third quarter, some fans at North Bullitt on Friday might have decided to beat the traffic and leave early.

    Bad idea. Those fans missed the most exciting part of the game as North Bullitt rallied to within 52-47 with 1:12 remaining in the game. After a Bullitt Central free throw, North Bullitt had a solid look at the basket, but junior Chase McKenzie’s three-pointer spun out with a minute left in the game.

  • NB girls get the jump on BC

     HEBRON ESTATES – The top two teams in the 23rd District showed that it will be a dog fight for the next three months after North Bullitt needed a strong effort to finally put away arch-rival Bullitt Central 68-56 in the first of two meetings in the regular season between the programs.

    North Bullitt led throughout the last three quarters, but Bullitt Central did get within two points early in the third quarter and it was still a single digit difference in the final minute of the third quarter.
