High School Sports

  • Local teams compete in the Region Four swimming contest

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The three Bullitt County swimming programs recently took part in the Region Four Championships at the Ralph Wright Natatorium on the University of Louisville campus.

    All three teams actually practice together under the coaching of Curtis Fuchs and Kelsey Davis and then compete under their own school banner in meets.

  • District hoops tourneys start on Monday

     LOUISVILLE – The post-season for high school basketball starts tonight across the state and district competition is scheduled for the next five nights for local teams.

    As always, there will be some expected winners and there will also be the usual flurry of upsets and tight games that make high school basketball the state’s most popular sport.

  • NB’s Johnson headed to Spalding

     HEBRON ESTATES – Her senior season was never what she dreamed about, but North Bullitt senior Ally Johnson isn’t going to let that step her dreams of playing college soccer.

    Johnson suffered a serious knee injury last summer while playing for her ‘club’ team and was forced to miss her entire senior season with the Lady Eagles. It had been hoped that Johnson would team with fellow senior Katlyn Andres on a juggernaut offensive team.

  • East easily rolls past Central

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The two programs had not met since Feb. 11 in 2014 and maybe the renewal of the rivalry could have waited another year as the Bullitt East Lady Chargers rolled past visiting Bullitt Central 75-23 on Monday.

    The rivalry had been put on hold by disagreements between the schools that were over the heads of the head coaches. Finally, last spring, superintendent Keith Davis sent out a memo requiring all Bullitt County teams to play each other during the regular season.

  • Twelve local wrestlers advance to the state finals

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – On Saturday, Bullitt Central played host to the Region Three Wrestling Championships with 13 schools taking part.

    DeSales won the overall team title with 208 points while Bullitt .East was second with 163 points. Fern Creek, the defending champions, were third with 138 points, just ahead of Valley with 136 points. Bullitt Central was fifth with 101 points.

  • East repeats as regional runner-up; BC 5th

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Despite not winning any of the 14 weight classes, the Bullitt East Chargers still managed to finish second overall in the 13-team Region Three Wrestling Tournament held on Saturday at Bullitt Central.

    Actually, Bullitt East had six wrestlers reach the championship match of the 14 weight classes, but could not pull out a victory.

  • Lady Chargers keep NB at a safe distance

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – In a much-anticipated match-up between the third- and fourth-ranked teams in the Sixth Region this season, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers kept the North Bullitt Lady Eagles in the rear view mirror for the entire game in winning 73-67 on Friday.

    The game may have been more anticipated in the north end of the county as North Bullitt was trying to break a decade long losing streak to Bullitt East. The Lady Eagles have not beaten the Lady Chargers since Feb. 3, 2006 when they won 41-36 at home.

  • No jacket, no problem for BE’s Jason Couch

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – It wasn’t exactly a wardrobe malfunction but more an assist from a sports jacket that spurred Bullitt East to an 86-67 victory over arch-rival North Bullitt on Friday.

    As the Chargers left the floor at halftime, head coach Jason Couch angrily removed his jacket and out of sight of most fans but in full view of his team, threw it against the wall and then loudly directed his players into the locker room.

    At the time, Bullitt East was ahead 44-42, but Couch felt his team should have had a larger margin.

  • Lady Chargers have no trouble with Lady Chargers

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Following a weekend pair of games in which they could not make shots, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers got back in the saddle on Tuesday and shot 58 percent in beating visiting Jeffersontown 81-49.

    Bullitt East was coming off a 62-49 loss at Franklin County in which they shot 39 percent from the field and a horrific 28 percent shooting night as they lost at Eastern 71-45. That game against Eastern included a two of 21 mark from beyond the three-point line.

  • State bowling was a learning event

    LOUISVILLE – Bullitt County’s three entries in Thursday’s KHSAA State Bowling Championships at Executive Strike and Spare each finished in the middle of the pack in a strong field.

    It was the first trip to the state finals for each of the three.
