High School Sports

  • No starters return, but high hopes for BE still

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – Many have played a little. None have played a lot.

    On a team that lost all five starters from a year ago, that is about as much good news as could be expected for first-year Bullitt East head coach Jason Couch.

  • East’s Glass signs to play volleyball at IUS

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – For almost a year, Bullitt East middle blocker Savannah Glass knew exactly where she was going to college both for academics and volleyball.

    It just took until recently for all the details to be worked out. That allowed the powerful 6-2 player at the net to sign with Indiana University Southeast during a fall signing ceremony in the Bullitt East Media Center on Nov. 16.

  • Lady Chargers to be among state’s elite

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – The old saying goes ‘it is darkest before the dawn.’

    Well, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers have gone through plenty of darkness during the fall, but there is still plenty of optimism that the team can put together the remaining pieces to field one of the best teams in the state.

    Many of the state’s coaches have agreed, recently ranking the Lady Chargers seventh in the state in pre-season polls.

  • Castle ready for soccer career at Georgetown

        MOUNT WASHINGTON – Bullitt East senior Kelsey Castle may not have had Georgetown College at the top of her list when the process started, but after one visit to the school, Castle moved the Tigers to the number one spot on her destination list.
        That was a few months ago and last Wednesday, Castle made it all official, signing an NAIA letter of intent with Georgetown and head coach Leah Crews Castleman.

  • North’s Deel caps off the process with the signing

        HEBRON ESTATES — For Lauren Deel, her athletic career at North Bullitt High School continues to progress.
        Both a track and a basketball star, Deel begins her senior season on the hardwood with high hopes.
        An All-Region hoops performer, Deel will now be the center of attention on a team that has won the 23rd District title every year she has played.

  • Cougars will grow around 6-5 Goldsmith

        SHEPHERDSVILLE – New Bullitt Central boys’ basketball coach Jessie Curry is most definitely, young, aggressive and enthusiastic when it comes to leading the Cougars, but he is also realistic.
        After taking over for former head coach Joe Pat Lee, who he worked with for six years, Curry looked at the team’s returning prospects and quickly understood that his first job was building for the future.

  • BC girls looking to build behind Grahams

        SHEPHERDSVILLE – Upon first glance at the roster, the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars don’t look that young headed into the 2016-17 season.
        But upon a deeper look, this will very much be a learning season for a very inexperienced team.
        In fact, first-year head coach Josh Cravens, who takes over for Kyle Roach, there are just two players who have ever started a varsity game. Just one more has ever played in a varsity game.

  • East’s Duvall makes it official with Louisville

        MOUNT WASHINGTON – The recruiting game at the high end is never easy.
        Imagine having to go through it all twice.
        That is what happened to Bullitt East standout Lindsey Duvall. Finally, over the past ten days it all came to an end when the 5-9 shooting guard signed her national letter of intent with the University of Louisville.

  • Eagles left it all on the field on Friday evening

        CRESTWOOD – Emotional pain was the name of the game on Friday after the North Bullitt Eagles lost to South Oldham 45-42 in the championship game of Class 5-A, Region 3.
        Losing the last game of any season is difficult in any sport and it is certainly emotional as many of the key players are often seniors who are playing their final games for ‘their school.’

  • Momentum ditches North in fourth

        CRESTWOOD – Everybody can define ‘momentum’, but no one can control it.
        That goes for North Bullitt football coach Adam Billings. His Eagles seemed to be in complete control early in the fourth quarter on Friday in the Class 5-A, Region 3 championship game at South Oldham. However, the Dragons wrestled momentum away from the green and gold and then scored the final 17 points of the game to win 45-42.
