  • 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.

  • Three ‘good’ quarters lift BE to opening win

     GOSHEN – Leading 49-27 at halftime after scoring 30 points in the second quarter, you can imagine that there wasn’t a lot of angst in the Bullitt East locker room during the break.

    Maybe there should have been.

    North Oldham bolted out of the locker room in the third quarter, outscoring the Chargers 26-11 to pull within 60-53 heading into the final frame. When Mustang standout Jonathan Henry drained a three-pointer to start the fourth quarter, it was game on.

  • ‘Super Scenario’ could be in play once more

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Last year was a season to remember for Bullitt County basketball fans and it might well be just as good this winter.

    First off, all six Bullitt County hoops programs posted winning records a year ago. In fact, each of the teams won at least 17 games.
