  • Lady Chargers grab two wins

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The first game of the weekend might not have gone as smoothly as head coach Chris Stallings would have liked, but the Bullitt East Lady Chargers picked up the pace on Saturday.

    Against Fern Creek on the road on Friday, the Lady Chargers seemingly had the game amongst 24th District rivals well in hand, but they could never put the game away. After being up by as many as 20 points in the third quarter, Bullitt East let the Lady Tigers get within eight points before securing the 66-58 victory.

  • BE rolls on a holiday

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – For the fact that it was basically a national holiday and there was wall-to-wall football on TV at home, but the Bullitt East Chargers focused very well on basketball last Monday as they crushed visiting Whitefield Academy 89-38.

  • BC teams split two

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Despite scoring just eight points in the fourth quarter, the Bullitt Central Cougars managed to hold off a spirited comeback by visiting Meade County 65-63 on Tuesday.

    The Green Wave had opened the season with a 7-1 record and while the team has been struggling of late, they were a big school with a winning record at 8-5 when they got to Shepherdsville. However, the youthful Cougars did enough right to get perhaps the most impressive victory to this part of the season.

  • Snow grabs two NB games

     HEBRON ESTATES – On Thursday of last week, North Bullitt and Assumption had to postpone a game because of inclement weather.

    This was actually the second time this game has had to be moved. It was originally scheduled for the first week of the season, but Assumption asked that it be moved because of an ‘open house’ at the school that night.

    Still, as of Friday, no new date for the game had been set.

  • East, North both in Girls’ LIT

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – For the third straight season, both Bullitt East and North Bullitt earned spots in the Republic Bank/Coca-Cola Consolidated Girls’ Louisville Invitational Tournament set to start on Jan. 24 at Bellarmine University’s Knights Hall.

  • Late dry spell costs NB big upset chance

     HEBRON ESTATES – Following an exchange of baskets to open the fourth quarter, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles on Tuesday had a 51-50 lead over visiting Nelson County, the state’s 19th ranked team.

    Unfortunately, that turned out to be the high-water mark for the green and gold as Nelson County scored 12 of the next 14 points over a five-minute span to take control of the game. By the final buzzer, the Lady Cardinals had pulled out a 71-62 victory by outscoring North Bullitt 23-13 in the final quarter.

  • Lady Eagles have a dolphin good time on Florida trip

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Coming just a few days after a ‘lost’ week playing in the Queen of the Commonwealth Tournament with overall team sickness, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles got back on the winning track during a trip to Florida last week in which the green and gold won two of three games.

  • East girls romp in Florida

      FORT MYERS, FLORIDA – It is very true that Bullitt East has played one of the most difficult schedules in the state this season.

    Coach Chris Stallings’ team enters the new year with an 11-4 record. Of the three teams that have beaten the Lady Chargers (they have lost twice to Male), those three teams have a combined 33-2 record through the first of the year.

    So yes, Bullitt East has had more than their share of ‘big games.’

  • ‘Revenge’ tour not working out well for NB

     HODGENVILLE – To this point, the 2016-2017 basketball season as been the ‘revenge’ tour for the North Bullitt Eagles.

    Unfortunately, the Eagles are not the ones exacting the revenge.

    A year ago, coach Korey Craddock’s team opened the season 14-1 with an undefeated record against Kentucky teams up until the Boys’ Louisville Invitational Tournament. That winning streak included holiday tournament titles at both Spencer County and LaRue County.

  • Chargers earn number five seed for Boys’ LIT

     LOUISVILLE – It will be another rematch this season for Bullitt East as the Chargers will face Sixth Region rival Pleasure Ridge Park on Tuesday in the Republic Bank Boys’ Louisville Invitational Tournament at Valley High School.

    Bullitt East, with an 11-4 record after beating Whitefield Academy on Monday night, traveled to Shively and beat Pleasure Ridge Park 66-62 back on Dec. 13. It was the first time the Chargers had ever played at PRP.
