  • East girls, BC boys feel frustration in state finals

     LEXINGTON – As with any state tournament that you donn’t win, there will always be some ‘what might have beens’ and some ‘what ifs’ mixed in with some frustration.

    That was certainly the case late last week as the Bullitt East girls and the Bullitt Central boys completed in the KHSAA Kentucky State Bowling Tournament at Collins Eastland Lanes in Lexington.

    The Bullitt East girls’ team reached the quarter-finals before falling to eventual state runner-up Boone County in four ‘Baker’ games.

  • Dukes scores 31 as BC grabs number two seed

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – A week after North Bullitt had torched Evangel with 19 three-pointers, the Bullitt Central Cougars nearly matched that feat on Tuesday, beating the visiting 23rd District rivals with 15 three-pointers as they rolled to a 91-59 victory.

    The win secured the number two spot for the Cougars in the 23rd District Tournament which Bullitt Central will host starting next Monday. North Bullitt has the number one seed with Bullitt Central second, Moore third, Southern fourth and Evangel fifth.

  • Region 3 wrestling action set for PRP on Friday-Saturday

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The three Bullitt County wrestling programs will compete this weekend in the Region Three Championships at Pleasure Ridge Park High School with a number of Bullitt Central and Bullitt East athletes expected to make runs at individual honors.

    On the team front, it appears that Fern Creek is the team to beat and that might be a tall order for any of the other dozen teams in the region. Still, along with Doss, the Chargers and Cougars could well be in the hunt for a top three team finish.

  • Central’s Wolf to play tennis at Campbellsville

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Four years ago, Bullitt Central’s Amber Wolf never dreamed she would be signing papers to play tennis in college.

    In fact, four years ago, Wolf didn’t know much about tennis at all.

    At that point, Wolf was a freshman volleyball player for the Lady Cougars, competing under head coach Jennifer Romine. At that point, Romine was also the girls’ tennis coach and one day she mentioned to Wolf about playing the spring sport.

  • Bullitt County swimmers set for Regionals

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – By any definition, this has been a trying season for the Bullitt County swimming program as the group had to change coaches just as the campaign was getting underway.

    Still, the swimmers have put forth a strong effort over the past three months and are ready to enter post-season action this week when they will compete in the Region 2 Meet at the University of Louisville’s Ralph Wright Natatorium on Thursday with preliminaries with hopes of advancing to the finals on Friday night.

  • Lady Eagles fall to Seventh Region favorite Male

     LOUISVILLE -- North Bullitt girls’ basketball coach David Marion looks at each of the regular season games as another practice on the court.

    The goal is to get better and prepare for the real games, which will be postseason play starting in less than two weeks.

    On Friday, one of those “practice” games happened to be against Male, which is ranked in the state’s top 20 programs.

    At the end of the night, the Lady Bulldogs came away with a 76-62 victory over North Bullitt.

  • Patton hopes to be in the slot as player at next level

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – After missing almost all of his junior season with a broken foot, Bullitt Central senior Zack Patton came back with a flourish, helping the Cougars to one of their best seasons in decades as he started on both sides of the ball as a senior.

    That play drew the attention of Union College in Barbourville, Kentucky. After also looking into the programs at Hanover and Lindsey Wilson, Patton recently made it official when he signed with NAIA school to continue his football career.

  • BC's Seay wins regional title; BE girls and BC boys teams to state

    LOUISVILLE – The Region 3 Bowling Tournament had a distinct Bullitt County flavor this year as two teams and two individuals advanced to the Kentucky State Bowling Tournament on Thursday and Friday of this week in Lexington.

    The Region 3 event was held on an eight-day period with the girls’ and boys’ team events decided on the previous Tuesday and Thursday before the individual competition was held last Tuesday at Ken Bowl Lanes in south Louisville.

  • Union nabs pair of Cougar football players

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – After transferring to Bullitt Central from Jeffersonville High school in southern Indiana, Cameron Mallory was a player out of position.

    Veteran Bullitt Central head coach Danny Leasor admits now that he tried to put a square peg in a round hole by putting Mallory at a cornerback position. The foot speed was not there and Mallory was giving up big plays.

  • Eagles grab No. 1 seed; BE No. 1 in boys' 24th

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – It was raining three-pointers on Tuesday as the North Bullitt Eagles bombed visiting Evangel 101-62 in a 23rd District clash.

    With a little help from Moore 90 minutes later when they upset Southern, North Bullitt earned the top seed for the 23rd District Tournament with a 3-1 mark. If Bullitt Central defeats Evangel on Tuesday, the Cougars will also have a 3-1 mark in the district, but have a loss to the Eagles. Unless Bullitt Central loses to Evangel, Moore will be the number three seed with Southern fourth and Evangel fifth.
