  • Local teams picking up steam at halfway mark

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – While not being invited to this year’s Boys’ Louisville Invitational Tournament, the Bullitt Central Cougars had a productive week which included a very strong outing on Thursday against Henry County.

    The game had already been scheduled and would have been played if the Cougars had been in the LIT or not.
