High School Sports

  • Chargers falter late; Lady Chargers roll

     BOWLING GREEN – The Bullitt East Chargers’ lack of experience may have showed a little in the season-opening game Tuesday at Warren Central High School.

    Bullitt East built a 17-point lead in the first half and still had the upper hand at 45-41 entering the fourth quarter before Warren Central rallied to win 62-57.

  • Graham scores 33 as Lady Cougars get win

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – When Josh Cravens took over the Bullitt Central girls’ basketball program in May the schedule for the upcoming season was pretty well set.

    Needless to say, if he had made the schedule, the Lady Cougars would not have opened the season Tuesday on the road at Trimble County. Bullitt Central has just one returning starter and only three players with any varsity experience while the Lady Raiders return most of its roster from the team that won the Eighth Region title a year ago.

  • Bullitt Central wins in opener of Curry era

     BEDFORD – The Jessie Curry era at Bullitt Central got off on the right foot on Tuesday as the maroon and gray went on the road and defeated Trimble County 77-51.

    An opening win might have been a little more than the ultra-young and inexperienced Cougars could have hoped for at this early stage, especially when the team’s only returning player with varsity experience, senior Danny Goldsmith, was held to just four points after going to bench after two early fouls.

  • NB wins, but Dunnavan to miss some action

     NEW CASTLE – Battling the limited availability of its leading returning scorer, Travis Dunnavan, the North Bullitt Eagles still managed to open the season with a road win, beating Henry County 58-46.

    Dunnavan missed the team’s two scrimmages with a hyper-extended knee, but he was in uniform for the first game of the season. Head coach Korey Craddock didn’t start the senior, but early in the first half Dunnavan entered the game and scored 17 of his team-high 22 points before halftime as the Eagles bolted to an eight-point advantage.

  • BE’s Renneisen all Aces with Evansville softball

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – No doubt about it. Bullitt East softball standout Lindsey Renneisen was all ‘Aces’ with Evansville University.

    It was over a year ago that the Lady Charger senior committed to the ‘Aces’ and then a few weeks ago she made it all official, signing the NCAA Division I paperwork with the school in a ceremony in the Bullitt East Media Center.

    Even with the early commitment, Renneisen never wavered from wanting to play for Evansville.

  • Despite heavy losses, Eagles ready to fly

     HEBRON ESTATES – Every coach expects graduation losses, that is just part of coaching high school sports.

    What coaches don’t like is when athletes transfer out the day before pre-season practice is set to start.

    North Bullitt head coach Korey Craddock got both the expected and the unexpected since the end of last season.

  • Deel ready to lead Lady Eagles to big year

     HEBRON ESTATES – As the North Bullitt Lady Eagles get ready to open the 2016-17 season on Saturday with a game at Shelby County against Martha Layne Collins High School, the starters and rotation are starting to fall into place for head coach David Marion.

    After suffering some key graduation losses, including four of the top six players from a year ago, there were plenty of openings for players who wanted to work hard and impress the coaching staff in the pre-season.

  • No starters return, but high hopes for BE still

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – Many have played a little. None have played a lot.

    On a team that lost all five starters from a year ago, that is about as much good news as could be expected for first-year Bullitt East head coach Jason Couch.

  • East’s Glass signs to play volleyball at IUS

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – For almost a year, Bullitt East middle blocker Savannah Glass knew exactly where she was going to college both for academics and volleyball.

    It just took until recently for all the details to be worked out. That allowed the powerful 6-2 player at the net to sign with Indiana University Southeast during a fall signing ceremony in the Bullitt East Media Center on Nov. 16.

  • Lady Chargers to be among state’s elite

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – The old saying goes ‘it is darkest before the dawn.’

    Well, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers have gone through plenty of darkness during the fall, but there is still plenty of optimism that the team can put together the remaining pieces to field one of the best teams in the state.

    Many of the state’s coaches have agreed, recently ranking the Lady Chargers seventh in the state in pre-season polls.
