  • Hard work allows Miller to lasso MSU scholarship

     MOUNT WASHINGTON-- Years of hard work have resulted in one Bullitt East student roping a college scholarship in a unique sport.

    For the first time ever, a Bullitt East High student has been awarded a rodeo scholarship.

    Blaine Miller has been riding horses since before he could walk.

    “I used to sit him on the saddle with me while I warmed up and, right before I went out, I’d hand him back to his mom,” said Rick Miller, Blaine’s father and retired-rodeo competitor.

  • Late games preparing teams for the post-season

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – With less than two weeks remaining in the regular season, local basketball teams might be thinking more about the upcoming post-season but there were still numerous games this past weekend.

    First and foremost, North Bullitt closed out regular season district play with a set of games at Moore High School. The Lady Eagles picked up a win and secured the number one seed for the district tourney, but the boys fell hard to the Mustangs and will now have the number three seed before Moore and Southern.

  • East girls headed back to state after regional runner-up finish

     LOUISVILLE – Who needs the regular season?

    Certainly not the Bullitt East Lady Charger bowling team. With four seniors returning this season from a squad that reached the state tournament a year ago, head coach Ricky Hoffman expected a strong team from start to finish. It didn’t happen as the team struggled early in the season.

  • NB’s Grant second in boys’ singles

     LOUISVILLE – They say it is always darkest before the dawn.

    North Bullitt senior bowler Errik Grant will always believe that.

    Three frames into last week’s Region 3 Boys’ Tournament semi-finals of qualifying at Ken Bowl Lanes, Grant was so frustrated with his play that he turned to head coach Emily Knight and announced that his chance of improving his score to the top four and advancing to not only the step ladder portion of the event, but also of earning a bid to the state tournament, was completely out of reach.

  • Quick start fuels Lady Eagles past Central

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The second of two encounters between the girls’ basketball programs at North Bullitt and Bullitt Central didn’t differ much from the first.

    In December, North Bullitt handled the visiting Lady Cougars by 46 points.

    On Tuesday, the margin was a little more respectable but the outcome the same as North Bullitt easily defeated the host Bullitt Central by a count of 66-32.

  • Central slows it down to beat North

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – When you two main ball handlers commit only one turnover against a trapping defense, good things happen.

    And when you seem to have a little more desire than you opponent to get to loose balls, even better things seem to happen.

    After suffering an 18-point defeat at the hands of their district rivals on Dec. 9, the Bullitt Central Cougars got a little bit of revenge on Tuesday with a 44-39 win over North Bullitt.

  • BE has the numbers to repeat as Bullitt Cup winners

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Bullitt East had the manpower, as well as the womanpower, to repeat as the Bullitt Cup Wrestling Champions on Wednesday at Bullitt Central in the annual tri-match between the county’s three wrestling programs.

  • A Very Special Homecoming Night

     The Bullitt Central student body showed its love for Morgan Baggett on Friday as she was selected as homecoming queen.

    She is the daughter of Tonya Rumford and Curtis Baggett.

    Baggett, who has Down Syndrome, was representing the Best Buddies program at the school.

    She was accompanied by Gage Niedert, son of Karen Niedert.

    Tristin Logsdon, son of Kristina and Rob Logsdon, was selected as the Homecoming King.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

  • Cougar hoops still a work in progress

     SHEPHERDSVILLE — As has been the case on several occasions this season, the Bullitt Central Cougars have hung tough against a quality opponent — only to come up a little short on the scoreboard.

    On Friday, the Western Warriors came to Shepherdsville to disrupt the homecoming festivities.

    Down by six with only two minutes to go, Western cashed in at the foul line down the stretch to take a 61-52 victory.

  • Chargers split a pair of tough weekend contests

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – It was supposed to be homecoming on Friday at Bullitt East, but that didn’t happen because of the girls’ team advancing in the Louisville Invitational Tournament, but it was still a happy place for the Chargers on Friday as the red and gold held Bardstown to six points in the third quarter and then coasted to a 75-64 win.
