  • 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.

  • Lots of basketball to be played in final two weeks

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – With the two Louisville Invitational Tournaments now in the rear view mirror, the high school basketball season is now officially in the homestretch.

  • East gets two chances but can’t beat Bardstown

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – After rallying from an eight point deficit entering the fourth quarter, Bullitt East had a pair of chances in the final 10 seconds to knock off Fifth Region power Bardstown on Friday, but came up short both times.

    The 56-54 Bardstown win continued a recent valley for Bullitt East late in the season. Since beating Manual in the quarter-finals of the Boys’ LIT, the Chargers have lost five of six.

  • Eagles sweep pair from Thomas Nelson Monday

     HEBRON ESTATES – No school, no problem for the two North Bullitt basketball teams on Monday.

    Despite being out of school as part of a planned day off, the two teams played host to Thomas Nelson High School, the newest school in Nelson County and both games went to the teams dressed in green and gold by hearty margins.

    Lady Eagles Win

  • BC is not match for Manual in LIT

    LOUISVILLE – Even during the best of times, the Manual Lady Crimsons would have been a lot for the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars to handle.

         Unfortunately, these are not the best of times for the maroon and gray. Injuries have decimated the team. On Tuesday, in the program’s first trip ever to the Republic Bank/Coca-Cola Girls’ Louisville Invitational Tournament, three starters sat on the bench in street clothes next to head coach Kyle Roach.

  • Mercy closes out BE with the games' final 11 points

    LOUISVILLE – Battling back from a 14-point deficit midway through the third quarter, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers seemingly had arch-rival Mercy right where they wanted them down the stretch of the second round game in the Republic Bank/Coca-Cola Girls’ Louisville Invitational Tournament on Wednesday.

  • Lady Eagles put on a strong show in beating CAL 64-49

     LOUISVILLE – Playing on the big stage under the bright lights for the second time in less than a week, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles made a statement that they belong with the top teams in the Sixth and Seventh Regions as they opened play in the Republic Bank/Coca-Cola Girls’ Louisville Invitational Tournament with a 64-59 win over Christian Academy.

         The Tuesday afternoon contest marked the first time that North Bullitt had ever played in the prestigious mid-season event and the team made the most of the opportunity.

  • East bests Central again

    LOUISVILLE – Eleven days didn’t make much difference for the Bullitt East Lady Chargers when they squared off with Louisville Central in the first round of the Republic Bank/Coca-Cola Girls’ Louisville Invitational Tournament last week.

         That was the amount of time since Bullitt East had traveled into Louisville and beat the Lady Yellowjackets 66-59. The pairings for the Girls’ LIT had them matched up again and this time the Lady Chargers put the defensive clamps on the athletic Central team, winning 57-43.

  • Homecoming games split at Bullitt Central on Friday

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The weather outside was frightful with snow falling, but the Bullitt Central Cougars got to celebrate the 2015 Hoops Homecoming in front of a strong crowd that saw a split of the two games.

    The second game went down to the wire before DeSales rallied with the last five points of the game to escape with a 36-34 victory. It wasn’t a win, but it was a strong showing for the Cougars as the visitors had been seeded sixth for the Boys’ Louisville Invitational Tournament, an event that Bullitt Central failed to make.
