  • Lady Cougars fall on homecoming

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- It’s been the story of many games this season.

    The Bullitt Central Lady Cougars have played well in the first half. But then the effects of having a very, very young team sets in.

    Such was the case on Friday in a 71-45 loss to visiting Western Hills.

    Down 37-30 at intermission, head coach Josh Cravens saw his team score just seven points in the third quarter.

  • Hoops into the homestretch

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- It was far from the most challenging weekend of the season, but the North Bullitt Lady Eagles can only play the team on the opposite bench and they did that well in two games over the weekend.

    On Friday, coach David Marion’s team made the short trip to Fairdale and beat the Lady Bulldogs 77-25.

    The green and gold shot 57.6 percent for the game in rolling to the win. The team also made five three-pointers.

    The only negative was 40 percent shooting at the foul line.

  • Hot start fuels Fern Creek past Chargers

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Sometimes, no matter what you do or how well you play, victory is just not in the cards.

    That was certainly the case for the Bullitt East Chargers as they took the court in a highly anticipated rematch with Fern Creek. It had been less than three weeks earlier that the two Sixth Region rivals had battled to the end before the Tigers claimed a 52-50 win in the quarter-finals of the Boys’ Louisville Invitational Tournament.

  • BE girls best Fern Creek in first meeting

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Already knowing that there will be a second meeting, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers made the most of the first meeting on Tuesday as they beat visiting Fern Creek 58-47.

    With Mercy already the number one seed, Bullitt East and Fern Creek were battling for the second and third spots in the 24th District seeding process. No matter the outcome of the first meeting, the two will be playing in the second semi-final of the post-season tournament the week of Feb. 19 at Fern Creek.

  • Lady Eagles get back in the saddle with two wins

     HEBRON ESTATES — When Cassidy Bishop drilled a three-pointer in the corner to open the fourth quarter, the North Bullitt bench erupted.

    That was the kind of reaction Lady Eagle head coach David Marion was looking for.

    He wanted to see his team have fun on the court.

    After a stretch in January where there didn’t seem to be a lot of fun or energy, North Bullitt came out of that funk with a 74-25 victory over a very young Bullitt Central squad.

  • Eagles record second win of season over BC

    HEBRON ESTATES — Lance Johnson and his North Bullitt teammates came out on fire Tuesday night.

    And when things got a little tight down the stretch, Johnson made sure there would be no letdown.

    For the second time this season, the Eagles turned back the Bullitt Central Cougars. This time, it was the home fans who got to enjoy the 53-41 victory.

    Johnson scored eight points in the first quarter as North Bullitt ran out to an 19-5 lead as T.J. Toney hit a trey just before the buzzer.

    The lead was 27-17 at intermission.

  • Lady Cougars win for second time

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- High school sports are often used to teach important life lessons to teenagers.

    That was the case on Thursday night for the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars when they traveled into Louisville and beaten Western 44-19.

    The lesson learned is that no matter how bad things might be for you, that there are others even less fortunate.

  • Mercy beats East in first meeting

     LOUISVILLE — The game plan never changes a lot.

    Two hard-playing teams battling it out on the basketball court.

    On Sunday, with four experienced starters returning from a year ago, the Mercy Jaguars were too much for the Bullitt East Lady Chargers.

    In a rare Sunday contest, the host Jaguars held off a third-quarter run to secure a 60-49 district victory.

    The long, athletic Mercy squad took advantage of a younger Bullitt East squad. However, Bullitt East head coach Chris Stallings really likes the way his team is coming along.

  • A Rivalry Renewed -- East slips past BC 57-47

     MOUNT WASHINGTON — The rivalry resumes.

    Finally!

    After not playing each other since March 7, 2014 in the semi-finals of the Sixth Region Tournament, Bullitt East and Bullitt Central clashed on Friday in a highly anticipated meeting between two teams with impressive records.

  • Sacred Heart gets hot late to beat BE 60-49

     LOUISVILLE – The first half defense effort was nearly flawless, but it wasn’t good enough on Wednesday for the Bullitt East Lady Chargers in the second-round of the Republic Bank/Coca-Cola Girls’ Louisville Invitational Tournament at Bellarmine University.
