  • Lady Cougars win again, but Cougars have long weekend

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The quick start for the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars continued on Friday as the maroon and gray picked up a third straight win as they held off visiting Oldham County 54-50.

    The weekend was not as good for the school’s male counterpart as the Cougars dropped a pair of games after opening with a win over Thomas Nelson. On Friday, the Cougars fell to Bethlehem 57-43 on the road before traveling again on Saturday to Campbellsville for a one-day ‘showcase’ event where they lost to Monroe County 56-41.

  • Lady Eagles pull away late for victory; start season 2-0

     BARDSTOWN – A 13-5 surge to open the fourth quarter gave the North Bullitt Lady Eagles some breathing room on Friday against Nelson County and the green and gold needed all of that advantage before winning 71-67.

    The victory was the second in as many games for the Lady Eagles to open the season. Amazingly, the team has scored 71 points in each of the first two contests.

  • First week of season is rough on the Eagles

       BARDSTOWN – A 14-point hole in the second half was more than the North Bullitt Eagles could overcome on Friday as the green and gold went on the road and dropped a 69-64 decision to Nelson County.

    The Eagles made a strong comeback to get back in the game. In fact, North Bullitt battled all the way back, tying the game at 46-46 when junior Ryan Henson drained a three-pointer to start the fourth quarter.

  • East, Central both hosting key games

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – The first of many big nights of high school basketball in the area will take place on Tuesday of this week with showdown battles at both Bullitt East and Bullitt Central in girl/boy doubleheaders.

         In Mount Washington, it will be the annual early season showdown between Bullitt East and Sixth Region rival Butler.

  • Some is good, some work to be done by BC

     BARDSTOWN – The Bullitt Central Cougars got the 2014-15 season off to a quick start on Tuesday as they bolted to a 23-6 lead after one quarter and then the maroon and gray cruised past Thomas Nelson 60-36.

         A year ago, Bullitt Central made the short trip over Highway-245 to the new school in Nelson County and lost. Later in the season, the maroon and gray beat the Generals in Shepherdsville.

  • Lady Eagles win, but boys fall in OT

     HEBRON ESTATES – The first games of the 2014-15 season were worlds apart for the two basketball teams at North Bullitt High School.

         The girls’ team, playing on the road Wednesday, busted out of the gate and never looked back as they easily defeated North Oldham 71-41 after leading 26-4 after the first quarter.

  • Lady Chargers win opener North

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Outscoring visiting Presentation in each quarter, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers got the 2014-15 season off on the right foot on Tuesday of last week as they beat the Toppers 70-51.

         The Lady Chargers jumped out to a 19-9 lead and were never seriously challenged the rest of the way.

         It was actually the second game of the season for Presentation as they had won the night before, beating Waggener 62-49.

  • Sharpe explodes for 30, but Chargers not sharp in win

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – An ugly win or a pretty loss?

         If given a choice, most high school coaches will take the first choice including veteran Bullitt East mentor Bob Blackburn. Still, that said, that doesn’t mean the coach has to be beaming after the ugly win. He just has to accept it.

  • Lady Cougars show plenty of potential in win

    BARDSTOWN – The first real outing for the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars was a strong one on Tuesday as they took an early lead at Thomas Nelson and then remained in control the rest of the way before winning 55-43.

         The final score was not indicative of the way that Bullitt Central controlled the game. The maroon and gray were on top 54-33 with less than four minutes to play before the Lady Generals went on a scoring run that never endangered who would win the game.

  • BE’s Alcorn headed south to continue swimming career

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Even in a modern world with the internet, Birmingham Southern College was not on Bullitt East senior Kelli Rae Alcorn’s early radar when it came to selecting a college.

    But this is the world of www and Alcorn used it to full advantage. Back in the spring and summer, the senior put her top swimming times into web sites geared to swimming. One of the school’s that came back was Birmingham Southern, an NCAA Division III in Alabama.
