High School Sports

  • Month remains in basketball regular season

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – With just a month remaining in the regular season, basketball is looking ahead to the post-season both on and off the court.

    On the court, the only really important game left is next Friday’s boys’ contest at North Bullitt when 23rd District rival Moore visits. North Bullitt can wrap up the number one seed with a win. If the Eagles beat Moore, then it won’t matter the outcome of the Feb. 10 game at Evangel, the final district game of the regular season.

  • Bowling enters post-season

     LOUISVILLE – Local bowling teams are the first of the ‘winter’ sports to enter the post-season this week and next week with Region Three competition at Ken Bowl Lanes.

    The girls’ team competition was held on Tuesday and the boys’ team competition will be on Thursday starting at 4 p.m. The individual championships will be held next Tuesday starting at 4 p.m.

  • Bullitt County Player of the Year

     Bullitt Central senior Cameron Dukes was recently named the Bullitt County Player of the Year by Schmid Funeral Home, The Award Center and The Pioneer News.

    Bullitt Central principal James Beavers was at the award presentation along with Tim Gonterman and Mark Schmid of Schmid Funeral Home.

  • Lady Eagles win, but still working to increase effort

     HEBRON ESTATES -- During games, North Bullitt head coach David Marion doesn’t get too loud or too emotional.

    However, during the Lady Eagles’ 64-25 blowout against Southern, Marion was not pleased with his team’s effort.

    But the end result was a positive one as the host team easily won in a District 23 showdown.

    Southern got only one lead in game as NaVesha Sheckles got the opening basket.

    Katie Downey’s drive knotted the score at 2-2.

  • BE, NB start Girls’ LIT play

     LOUISVILLE – Seemingly playing at the top of their games and as healthy as they are going to get this season, both the Bullitt East Lady Chargers and the North Bullitt Lady Eagles appear ready for this week’s Republic Bank/Coca-Cola Girls’ Louisville Invitational Tournament that will start on Tuesday at Bellarmine University’s Knight’s Hall.

    Unfortunately, both teams lost some valuable practice time and games over the weekend because of the bad weather.

  • Eagles grab a key district win over Southern

     HEBRON ESTATES -- Even when you have an offense that likes to shoot the ball, there are times when defense wins games.

    For the North Bullitt Eagles, it has been a magical season on both ends of the court.

    On Tuesday, in a major district clash against the Southern Trojans, stiff defense and a patient offense were the key to a 78-66 victory.

    The win puts North Bullitt in control of its own destiny in its goal to be the top seed in the 23rd District.

  • Sweet Mercy! Lady Chargers beat Jaguars

     LOUISVILLE – Left in a state of flux at the start of the season after losing junior Lindsey Duvall to a knee injury, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers reasserted themselves into the race for the top spot in both the 24th District and the Sixth Region on Tuesday after beating defending champion Mercy 50-45 on the Jaguars’ home court.

  • Lady Eagles getting back to healthy at the right time

      HEBRON ESTATES – As the North Bullitt Lady Eagles head into the bigger events in the middle of the season, the good news is that coach David Marion’s team is getting healthy again.

    After playing games a few weeks ago without the team’s top two scorers, senior Katie Downey and junior Lauren Deel, those two players returned to the court last week and the green and gold responded with a pair of wins.

  • Lady Chargers stay hot; win two more contests

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East Lady Chargers’ mid-season surge continued over the weekend as the red and gold knocked off two formidable foes over the weekend.

    On Friday, the Lady Chargers welcomed Central High School to Mount Washington and pulled out a 64-50 victory over a Lady Jacket team that entered the contest with a 12-5 record. Central had played in the Schmid Funeral Home Holiday Classic at Bullitt East back in December, finishing fourth but not facing Bullitt East.

  • Cougar struggles continue

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Running in quicksand.

    That seems to be the situation that the Bullitt Central Cougars have found themselves in for much of the season. After starting the campaign 3-1, the maroon and gray have dropped 11 straight contests.

    The outcomes have not been lopsided for the most part, but the team just can’t seem to make the plays down the stretch to get the wins.

    Last week, the team lost a pair of games. On Monday, it was Atherton outscoring the Cougars 27-9 in the second quarter as they then held on to win 67-56.
