  • BE’s Pruitt competes in girls’ state tourney

     BOWLING GREEN - Bullitt East senior Olivia Pruitt competed on Friday in the Leachman Buick/GMC Girls’ Kentucky State Golf Tournament at the Bowling Green Country Club.

    Pruitt was the first Bullitt County player to advance to the state tournament since the entire Bullitt East Lady Charger squad finished second in the regional tournament in 2010 and played in the big show.

  • NB, BC will battle again

     OKOLONA – For the second time in as many seasons the Girls’ 23rd District Soccer Champion will be from Bullitt County after North Bullitt and Bullitt Central won semi-final round matches on Monday at Moore High School.

    The two rivals were going to meet on Tuesday night in the championship game just as they did last year with North Bullitt winning. Both teams will advance to next week’s Sixth Region Tournament no matter the outcome on Tuesday.

  • Coaching situation at Bullitt East has no winners

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The news last week that Bullitt East boys’ basketball coach John Hunt had resigned from that post before ever coaching a game was a decision that was in everyone’s best interest.

         As is well documented now, Hunt was arrested last Tuesday in Mount Washington on charges of domestic violence and endangering the welfare of a minor. He pleaded not guilty the next day and then in a meeting with Bullitt East principal Willie Foster stepped down from the job that he had held since June.

  • Chargers Pierce the hearts of the Cougars

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – When his head coach makes a suggestion about quarterback play Bullitt East junior Pierce Kelly listens.

         In the two weeks leading up to Friday’s annual rendition of The War, Charger head coach Darrell Vincent had been working with Kelly about reading the defense on the split-back veer instead of guessing at what the defense would do at the point of attack.

  • North hosts Shelby in key district game

      HEBRON ESTATES – The North Bullitt Eagles won’t have much time to rebound from last week’s loss to Bullitt Central as they have an important date on Friday with visiting Shelby County.

    The Rockets are the defending Class 5-A, District 4 champions and managed to beat the Eagles 49-0. That Rockets team went on to post a 9-3 mark, eventually losing to Jeffersontown in the second round of the play-offs.

  • THE WAR: District, Bullitt Cup both on the line in showdown

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – No surprises. That is what Bullitt Central head coach Danny Leasor and Bullitt East mentor Darrell Vincent were both saying on Monday as they talked about Friday’s clash in Mount Washington between the two schools in the annual renewal of The War.

    Both coaches know exactly what the other will try to do. That doesn’t mean it won’t work or that a few wrinkles won’t catch the other off guard.

    Even fans know what to expect in Friday’s game.

  • Despite losing a starter, East has too much for BC

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – For the second time in three weeks, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers swept through their rivals from Bullitt Central in straight games, winning 25-9, 25-12, 25-15 on Monday night.

    It was a powerful performance for the Lady Chargers as they played their power game well, getting the ball down behind the hitting of senior Shelby Graham and junior Jennifer Cischke.

  • NB scores late to beat BC 5-4, grabs top seed

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Scoring three unanswered goals in the second half, the last coming with less than two minutes to play, the North Bullitt Eagles slipped past Bullitt Central on Wednesday by a 5-4 score.

    This contest highlighted two of the great turnaround seasons in local history. A year ago, the two teams did not beat anyone other than North Bullitt beating Bullitt Central twice. The second coming in the feed-in game of the 23rd District Tournament, a contest the green and gold won 2-0 before falling to Southern a day later.

  • BE CC squads in major meets

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – When the Bullitt East Lady Charger cross-country team competes in small ‘neighborhood’ races during the week, the results have been dominating.

    Already the season, the team has run in a meet where they posted a ‘perfect’ score of 15. Even in the medium sized Bernie Keene Invitational at Nelson County, the red and gold had five of the top six finishers.

    So, head coach Lenny Raley has loaded up on the big, Saturday meets with top-flight competition.

  • East's Pruitt hits the mark, now heads to state tourney

    FAIRDALE – Firing the best 18-hole score of her career, Bullitt East senior Olivia Pruitt qualified for this week’s Girls’ Kentucky State Golf Tournament at the Bowling Green Country Club.

    Playing in the Third Region Tournament at the South Park Country Club, on Tuesday, Pruitt finished with an 88, good enough for seventh in the field of over 60 players.

    “I was looking for an 88,” Pruitt said after getting her medal for a top-eight finish. “At the beginning, I was thinking about getting to state.”
