  • Minyard decides on hoops future at Indiana Southeast

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Unlike many high school seniors, Bullitt Central's Seaera Minyard had to go through a lengthy checklist even before she started the process of selecting a college to attend.
     First and foremost, Minyard had to decide which sport she wanted to pursue at the next level. Or, she had to decide how many sports to consider.
     As is often the case, those things worked themselves out. When Minyard started talking to college basketball and softball coaches, she was getting better financial aide from basketball.

  • McKnight headed to Centre to continue basketball career

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Unlike some college seniors, Bullitt Central's Kaitlyn McKnight said that the recruiting process was never difficult for her.

     McKnight will follow the same path as her high school coach. Bryan Bates also attended Centre College.

  • East boys' track ranked 5th in the state this season

     MOUNT WASHINGTON - Track and field in Kentucky is divided into three different classes and that is not going to change anytime soon.
     So, that means that we have three state champion boys' teams in any one season.
     This spring, Bullitt East had the best finish ever for a local squad, finishing fifth in the Boys' Class AA State Championships at the University of Louisville in May. North Bullitt finished 10th that day, another strong finish.

  • Bates steps down as Lady Cougar coach

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - The man who changed careers so that he could become a coach, stepped down on Thursday as Bullitt Central Lady Cougar head coach Bryan Bates met with his team to announce his resignation.

    Bates was at the helm for the past eight years of very consistent basketball. The Lady Cougars posted a 123-102 record over that span and never failed to win at least 12 games.

    The timing of the decision came just a week after Bates had conducted his annual summer Lady Cougar Basketball Camp.
