  • Lane 13 proves bad luck to the Cougars

     LEXINGTON – The number 13 was certainly a bad number for the Bullitt Central boys’ bowling team on Friday at the Ebonite/Kentucky State Championships at Collins Eastland Bowling Center in Lexington.

    After qualifying fifth out of the 16 teams in the early bowling, the Cougars advanced to the quarter-finals with a 3-1 victory over Apollo High School. That set up a match with Scott County to be played on lanes 13 and 14.

  • Saunders brothers fuel Cougars to fourth

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After some down seasons, the Bullitt Central wrestling program is making strides to once again be a regional and state contender.

    That was certainly the point on Saturday as the Cougars finished fourth in the Region Three event which was contested at North Bullitt.

    Bullitt Central finished with 124 points, fueled by the strong finishes of senior brothers Mark Saunders who won the 195-pound division and Michael Saunders who finished second at 182-pounds.

  • Lady Cougars’ remarkable run beat Holy Cross

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Rallying from 18 points down in the final six minutes of the game, the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars forced overtime and then beat visiting Holy Cross on Friday in a stunning turn of events for the maroon and gray.

    Bullitt Central was down 54-36 with under six minutes remaining in the game before going on a 20-2 run to tie the game at 56-56 at the end of regulation. The final points came on a three-pointer by sophomore Lexi Graham with just four seconds remaining on the clock.

  • Cougars play well until the end collapses

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – For 30 minutes on Friday, the Bullitt Central Cougars put forth a strong effort against visiting Holy Cross, a team that just a night earlier, had stunned ninth-ranked Pleasure Ridge Park by four points.

    Unfortunately, high school basketball games last 32 minutes. The maroon and gray struggled over the last two minutes, surrendering a 44-40 lead before falling 48-46. The Cougars did not get a shot over the final 60 seconds.

  • BC boys stun PRP, then take regional title

      LOUISVILLE – There is nothing better than beating your number one rival.

    The feeling is even better when you beat your number one rival in a best of five format after trailing 0-2.

    The Bullitt Central boys’ bowling team did just that in the Region 3 Tournament recently at Fern Valley Strike and Spare, rallying from a big hole to defeat arch-rival Pleasure Ridge Park in the tourney semi-finals. A year ago, PRP had beaten Bullitt Central in the final.

  • Borah, Clark post top four finishes in regional

     LOUISVILLE – The ending wasn’t exactly what Jared Borah was looking for, but the whole package worked out just fine last Thursday as the Bullitt Central sophomore finished third at the Region 3 Boys’ Bowling Tournament, qualifying for this Thursday’s Kentucky State Bowling Tournament in Lexington.

    Borah will be joined by North Bullitt’s Logan Clark who finished fourth, earning the final qualifying spot in Lexington.

  • Cougars and Chargers back to winning ways

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After a few bumps in the road, the Bullitt Central Cougars and the Bullitt East Chargers got back to their winning ways late last week as each team won a pair of games.

    The two programs are gearing up for a meeting next Tuesday in Shepherdsville that will part of a girl/boy doubleheader, the only meeting in the regular season between the two teams this season.

    Cougars Roll

    On Thursday, coach Joe Pat Lee’s team had no trouble on the road as they cruised past St. Francis 69-36.

  • Poor shooting again haunts Lady Chargers in LIT

     LOUISVILLE - While the weather was warming up outside, the shooting percentage for the Bullitt East Lady Chargers was sub-freezing on Friday.

    In the quarterfinal of the Republic Bank/Coca Cola Louisville Invitational at Bellarmine University, Bullitt East fell to the Franklin County Flyers 53-42.

    While disappointed, Bullitt East veteran coach Chris Stallings was not ready to give up on his young team after falling to the seventh-ranked team in the state.

  • North Bullitt in rarified air after beating Trojans

     HEBRON ESTATES - It’s as simple as climbing a ladder.

    The problem is that sometimes you may be inclined to go down a step or two along your journey.

    For the North Bullitt Eagles, all the steps have been positive ones the past month.

    On Thursday, with a loud, fun-loving crowd in the stands, the Eagles continued to move up the ladder. And they also secured the top seed in the district tournament later this month.

  • Lady Eagles roll again

     HEBRON ESTATES - There weren’t any Cyndi Lauper look-a-likes in the crowd Thursday evening but North Bullitt coach Amber Courtney didn’t mind if her girls were having a little fun.

    As the boys’ played the first game, members of the Lady Eagles were in the stands, dressed in their best beach attire and hitting beach balls with other students.

    But when it was time to get serious, there was no play. It was all business as North Bullitt wrapped up the top seed in the district tournament with a 70-31 thrashing of the Southern Lady Trojans.
