  • Shooting woes stall Lady Chargers’ bid

     LOUISVILLE – The Bullitt East Lady Chargers ran their winning streak to ten games and 15 of the last 16 as they won twice more over the weekend playing in the Raatz Fence/O’Shea’s Classic at Mercy High School.

    Bullitt East has become a regular in the Mercy event which is one of the most prestigious ‘showcase’ events in the state each season. The event attracts a lot of college coaches to see the assembled talent.

  • Lady Cougars end losing streak with a win at Atherton

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- After averaging just 41 points a game through the first 18 games of the season, the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars finally found some offensive firepower on Friday, traveling into Jefferson County and beating Atherton 60-44.

    The 60 points offensive production was the second most the team had scored in a game this season, surpassed only by the 71 points they scored against Jeffersontown early in the season.

    Bullitt Central (6-14)  also scored 60 points before Christmas in a win at home over Waggener.

  • Eagles fall in strong upset bid of Bardstown

     HEBRON ESTATES — Coming off Wednesday night’s late-game collapse against Southern, North Bullitt head coach Korey Craddock didn’t know what to expect when his Eagles took the floor Friday evening.

    But, what he saw was exactly what he was hoping.

    His Eagles put together its most complete game.

    Even in the 69-66 loss, Craddock was very encouraged by his team’s play.

  • All-Bullitt County wrestling meet to be contested Wednesday at BC

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- All three Bullitt County wrestling programs will converge on Bullitt Central on Wednesday for the annual All-Bullitt County Meet.

    The teams have all wrestled each other this season in the duals format, but this will be the first and only time they will do so in a tri-match. This will be an important tune-up for all three teams before they take part in the Region 3 Tournament which for the first time will be held at Bullitt East on Saturday, Feb. 11 (with some matches on Feb. 10 if needed).

  • East and North set for LIT action on Tuesday

     LOUISVILLE -- Both Bullitt East and North Bullitt will open play in this year’s Republic Bank/Coca-Cola Girls’ Louisville Invitational Tournament on Tuesday at Bellarmine University’s Knight’s Hall.

    In fact, North Bullitt will play the very first game in the 16-team event when the Lady Eagles take the court at 3:30 against Christian Academy of Louisville. The two programs have met at this stage each of the past two seasons witht he teams splitting those games with CAL winning in 2016 and North Bullitt in 2015.

  • Chargers just crush Manual

     MOUNT WASHINGTON -- Coming out of the disappointment of a quarter-final loss in the Boys’ Louisville Invitational Tournament five days earlier, the Bullitt East Chargers started a new winning streak in a rare Wednesday game as they crushed visiting Manual 79-46.

    It has been a tough season for the Crimsons as the normally powerful program had just three wins heading to Mount Washington. Bullitt East made sure they didn’t get the fourth victory as the red and gold pulled away from an 18-14 lead after one quarter with a 23-3 advantage in the second frame.

  • BC’s struggles get worse on Tuesday

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Far from a powerhouse offensive team this winter, the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars may have hit rock bottom on Tuesday as they were beaten by visiting Bardstown 51-20.

    The game was the fourth in five days for the maroon and gray and that could well have had something to do with the struggles on offense. The Lady Cougars made just six shots the entire night in 49 attempts (12.2 percent). Bullitt Central was actually a little better outside the arc than inside it as they made three of 15 from long range.

  • Defense turns up heat to fuel pair of victories

     HEBRON ESTATES — Hailey Free’s playing career is far from over.

    However, the junior point guard got an early start in her coaching career on Tuesday.

    Entering the locker room at halftime with a narrow two-point lead over Assumption, Free suggested to head coach David Marion that the Lady Eagles open up the third quarter with its half-court trapping defense.

    “It wasn’t my call,” said Marion.
