  • UPDATE: All three local programs send teams to state cheer

     LEXINGTON — Bullitt County cheerleaders took Lexington by storm on Saturday.

  • North’s Free signs to play basketball at Pikeville U.

     HEBRON ESTATES – Close to home, but not too close.

    That ended up being a big selling point for North Bullitt senior Hailey Free when it came to her selecting Pikeville University for her college future.

    Free made it all official recently when she signed the papers to join the NAIA program after playing her final season with the Lady Eagles.

  • Quick Start! BC beats Bethlehem to go 2-0 start

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The opening week of the 2017-18 high school basketball season for Bullitt Central couldn’t have started any better as the maroon have bolted to a 2-0 start with a pair of double-digit wins.

    After cruising past Thomas Nelson 67-39 on the road to open the season, the Cougars played at home on Friday and picked up an equally impressive 77-56 victory over another team from Nelson County – Bethlehem.

  • Four more impressive wins

     There was plenty of basketball action on the first Friday and Saturday of the high school hoops season and most of it ended up being victories for the local teams.

    Lady Chargers Win Two

    Two of the wins over the weekend were recorded by the Bullitt East Lady Chargers in two games that were 120 miles apart.

    On Friday night, Bullitt East played host to Henderson County and it was impressive outing as the red and gold won 60-36.

  • BC roars early in road win at Thomas Nelson

     BARDSTOWN – The Bullitt Central Cougars opened the season with a bang on Tuesday, holding Thomas Nelson to just 18 points through three quarters as the maroon and gray rolled to a 67-39 victory.

    It was an early start for the boys as they played the first of the two games with a 6 p.m. start while the girls’ game was played second. The early action didn’t phase the Cougars as the maroon and gray raced out to a 38-13 halftime lead and then never looked back.

  • Lady Eagles soar out of the gate in opener

     HEBRON ESTATES – The North Bullitt Lady Eagles two days longer than any other area team to start the season, but the wait was worth it as the green and gold opened the 2017-18 season on Thursday with an easier than expected 66-32 victory over visiting LaRue County.

    This contest was relatively close in the first half even though the Lady Eagles did lead from start to finish. North Bullitt was up 16-13 after one quarter and stretched that to 26-17 at halftime.

  • BE even at 29 before Trinity races ahead

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Twelve minutes into the season-opening clash with the pre-season number one team in Kentucky – Trinity – the Bullitt East Chargers were feeling pretty good about things with the score knotted at 29-29.

    Unfortunately, that was the high-water mark for the red and gold. Over the final four minutes of the second quarter, Trinity scored 15 straight points, including a trio of there-pointers, in a show of why they are top-ranked, as they raced ahead 44-29 at halftime.

  • Scheduling continues to change

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – For decades upon decades, local basketball fans pretty much set their schedules each winter around the intra-county boy/girl doubleheaders between the three area hoops programs.

    That was pretty much the backbone of the schedules as six of the roughly ten Friday nights in a season (not counting the two Friday’s in the Christmas break) had the big games pretty much right there front and center.

  • East girls will need time to reach potential

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – Over 18 years of being the head coach of the Bullitt East Lady Chargers, Chris Stallings have never once announced that any of his teams was better in December than it was in March.

    That will again be the case this season, but perhaps to an even greater degree. With no starters returning from last season’s 24th District Champions and Sixth Region runners-up, the 2017-18 Lady Chargers have a lot of room for growth over the next three months.
