  • It will be guards galore for NB

     HEBRON ESTATES – If North Bullitt head coach Amber Courtney was working in the NBA then she would be looking to trade some guards for some ‘bigs.’

    But you can’t do that in high school basketball. You have to play with the cards that you are dealt. So, Courtney and her guard-oriented Lady Eagles will go into battle this winter long on back-court talent and experience and short on tall.

    The Lady Eagles don’t have a player over 5-8 this season, which leads Courtney to say that her team will start five guards each and every night.

  • Lady Cougars can’t get any younger - zero seniors

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – High school basketball coaches love to have senior leaders.

    For second-year Bullitt Central girls’ head coach Kyle Roach that is not a luxury he will not have this winter. The leader part he feels he will have, but the Lady Cougar head coach will have no seniors this season.

  • Lady Chargers hosting major ‘showcase’ event

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – In what has grown into one of the top pre-season girls’ basketball events will be played this weekend as the 12th Annual Bullitt East/High Potential Showcase is contested at Bullitt East.

    There will be 14 teams taking part this season with two ‘scrimmages’ on Friday night and then a full slate of five scrimmages on Saturday starting at 9 a.m. and going for the next 13 hours.

    Besides Bullitt East taking part on Saturday, area fans can also get their first look at North Bullitt when they scrimmage on Friday.

  • Chargers next up to stop John Hardin’s run

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East Chargers will get a golden chance at glory on Friday when the red and gold travel to Radcliff for the Class 5-A, Region 2 Championship Game against John Hardin.

    This will be the sixth straight season that John Hardin has played in a regional final. The Bulldogs have won the previous five times.

  • Chargers face another ‘Cougar’ foe in Grayson

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East Chargers will get a chance to win a second-round play-off match-up for the first time since 2008 on Friday when they play host to Grayson County in a Class 5-A match-up.

    Bullitt East (10-1) will take a six-game winning streak into the contest after dismantling North Hardin 30-7 last week in Mount Washington. That was the program’s first post-season win since 2008.

    Grayson County (5-6) earned the road trip with a 34-26 victory over North Bullitt.

  • Late reprieve - NB and BE will play hoops

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – A winter reprieve. Sort of.

    With the start of the high school basketball season just a few weeks away (Dec. 2), Bullitt County fans did get some good news in the past ten days when Bullitt East and North Bullitt announced that the two schools will play a basketball game against each other this winter.

  • Poppell leads Lady Chargers to 8th in state

     LEXINGTON – Bullitt East sophomore Sierra Poppell overcame breezy conditions on Saturday to post the best finish ever for a Bullitt County runner when she finished 11th in the Class AAA Kentucky State Cross-Country Championships.

    Running over the 5K course at the Kentucky Horse Park, Poppell competed against some of the top runners in the state before finishing with a time of 19:28 to finish just off the podium in a field of 235 runners.

  • Awful opening half sinks Cougars Friday

      RADCLIFF – A season that had started so quickly for Bullitt Central, came to an even quicker end on Friday as the Cougars were bumped from the Class 5-A play-offs by traditional power John Hardin by a 43-14 score.

    For all intents and purposes, this game was over midway through the second quarter. By the 6:01 mark, the Bulldogs had pulled ahead 36-0, putting the running clock in order for the rest of the game. John Hardin scored on six of seven possessions in the first half and led 43-0 by halftime. The Cougars did not score until the fourth quarter.

  • Eagles make strong run before falling on the road

     LEITCHFIELD - The Grayson County Cougars looked a lot better in person than on film.

    And quarterback Talon Gary, who had seen as much time at wide receiver, may have played his best game in directing the Cougar offense to 34-26 victory over the North Bullitt Eagles.

    The loss ended the season for  coach Brett Newton’s team.

    The Cougars will advance to a Friday night battle against the homestanding Bullitt East Chargers in the second round of the playoffs.

  • East grabs first post-season win since ‘08

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – A golden defensive effort was more than enough for the Bullitt East Chargers on Friday as they opened the Class 5-A play-offs at home with a 30-7 victory over North Hardin.

    The win was the first for Bullitt East in post-season play since 2008 when the red and gold won four straight games before losing in the state final to Bell County.

    It was just two years ago that North Hardin last made a visit to Mount Washington for the play-offs. In 2011, the Trojans left with a 35-14 victory.
