High School Sports

  • BC girls still seeking identity

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - The Bullitt Central Lady Cougars continued to send mixed signals to head coach Bryan Bates last week as they went 1-2 in their own holiday tournament.
        There were periods where the maroon and gray played quite well against strong competition. At other times, the Lady Cougars struggled with their shooting and offense overall.

  • Youthful Lady Eagles continue to show steady improvement

        HEBRON ESTATES - Amber Courtney is competitive and she hates to lose. However, the second-year coach is anything but unhappy with the steady improvement of her North Bullitt Lady Eagles.
        While the Lady Eagles settled for fourth place in its own First Citizens Bank Classic, Courtney said the improvement since the first game of the season is immeasurable.

  • Smith set to go out in style during his final MMA bout

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - In what could be the final fight in a long career, Billy Smith wanted to bring something back to his hometown.
        On Saturday, Jan. 8, All American MMA will bring a 15-bout card to the Shepherdsville City Government Center.
        The program will, in part, be a fund-raiser for the Crusade for Children and Crimes Against Children.

  • Fun in the sun, but no wins for BC

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - There was plenty of fun and sun for the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars just before Christmas as they headed to Florida for the KSA Classic at Walt Disney World.
        The only thing missing were some victories. The Lady Cougars lost three straight games in the eight-team event against teams from the east coast.
        Unfortunately, because of limited manpower, Bullitt Central head coach Bryan Bates could not collect very many statistics. In fact, he didn’t even have complete scoring for his own team.

  • Slow start dooms BE late in KOB

        FAIRDALE - Bullitt East’s pre-Christmas trek through some of the best teams in the state continued even in the consolation bracket of the King of the Bluegrass Holiday Tournament at Fairdale High School.
        After losing to Eastern, the state’s second-ranked team, in the first round of the event, Charger head coach Troy Barr had one goal - win two games in the small gym and get back to the big room for the final day of the tournament.
        Mission accomplished.

  • Holiday hoops events have a clear hierarchy

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - What can you say about a tournament where you lose the first game of the event to the second ranked team in Kentucky to fall into the consolation bracket?
        Once you get there, you face two more teams ranked among the top five teams coming into the season by the state’s coaches.
        You just say ‘wow’ and walk away happy with a 2-2 record.

  • NB Lady Eagles roll on in tournament

    HEBRON ESTATES - The North Bullitt Lady Eagles were rolling in the first half of the semifinals Tuesday night of the First Citizens Bank Classic.

    However, an offensive shortage in the third quarter will land the Lady Eagles in the third-place game tonight against North Oldham.

    North Bullitt and North Oldham will tip off at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday. John Hardin and Warren Central will play for the championship at 8 p.m.

    The tournament starts at 3:30 p.m.      

  • Lady Eagles improving

     HEBRON ESTATES - The North Bullitt Lady Eagles still have a lot to learn, but coach Amber Courtney’s team learned a lot before Christmas competing in the Campbellsville Holiday Classic.

  • NB, BC girls set to host 8-team holiday tourneys

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Basketballs will be bouncing all over the state this week with high school holiday tournaments.

  • NB, BC grab early wins
