  • Football honors abound for three area standouts

     MOUNT WASHINGTON - Football honors are rolling in for area coaches and players after a successful season for the area teams.

    On Sunday, in the weather delayed halftime of the Class 5-A Kentucky State Football Championships, Bullitt Central junior running back Trevor Carnell and Bullitt East head coach Darrell Vincent were honored as the Class 5-A, District 4 Player and Coach of the year, respectively.

    The honors came from the Kentucky Football Coaches Association.

  • Chargers win, but North makes them earn it

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The first and only meeting between two old rivals went to Bullitt East on Monday as the Chargers turned back visiting North Bullitt 84-58 in a boys’ high school clash.

    The victory continued Bullitt East’s recent winning ways against their old rivals. The victory was the 18th in a row for the red and gold and over the past dozen seasons, the Chargers have a 22-1 advantage. The last North Bullitt win over Bullitt East came on Feb. 6, 2004, by a 72-64 margin.

  • BC bowling teams drop a pair of close matches

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – In a pair of matches last week, the Bullitt Central bowling teams came up just short as they dropped both matches.

    On Tuesday, the Lady Cougars fell to the team from Jeffersontown by a score of 6-1. Bullitt Central was led in scoring by Elizabeth Borah (155, 143) and Dallas Taylor (115, 137). A game high score was also turned in by Nicole Pharris.

    Bullitt Central fell to 2-3 for the season.

  • East’s Ralph signs to play baseball at Bellarmine

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Baseball is not always considered a game involving a lot of speed.

    However, one part of baseball happened very fast for Bullitt East senior Alex Ralph and that was his recruitment by Bellarmine University to join the Knights’ squad starting next fall. Ralph recently made it all official, holding a ceremony in the Bullitt East Media Center in which his parents, sisters, coaches and teammates were present for the big event.

  • North Bullitt girls show Bardstown how it is done

     HEBRON ESTATES - Amber Courtney liked what she saw in the season opener for her North Bullitt Lady Eagles.

    And the crowd assembled for the Monday night affair against Bardstown also seemed to enjoy the uptempo play from the Lady Eagles.

    Thanks to a 21-2 third quarter advantage, North Bullitt walked away with a 77-45 victory over the Lady Tigers.

    “Overall, I’m pleased with the effort,” said Courtney. “I like a lot of things I saw but there is still a lot to work on.”

  • BC bowling starts fast

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The Bullitt Central bowling teams have gotten off to a quick start this season through the first three weeks of the regular season.

    After the first four matches, the Cougars stand at 3-1 while the Lady Cougars are 2-2.

  • Chargers start fast, then roll past Mustangs

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East Chargers raced out to a 16-2 lead and never looked back on Monday as they opened the 2013-2014 season with a 66-53 victory over visiting North Oldham.

    It was just the start that former head coach/new head coach Bob Blackburn was looking for as he takes over a team that returned no starters from a year ago. The starting line-up for the Chargers included one senior, one junior and three sophomores as the team looks to build a rotation and a chemistry for what is most certainly a new era in Bullitt East basketball.

  • Charger Fall Brawl

     The Bullitt East wrestling program will host the Charger Fall Brawl on Saturday.

    This is the first year for the event that Charger head coach Adam Ritter is calling “The battle at East, After the Feast.”

    There will be seven teams taking part in the event. Besides Bullitt East, teams from North Bullitt, North Oldham, Valley, Holy Cross, Male and Western Hills will be taking part.

    There will be three mats of action taking place.

  • Lady Chargers prepared for a big season

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The expectations for the Bullitt East Lady Chargers are always high.

    This winter, the plans are bigger and grander than even normal.

    With the combination of a strong senior class and an exceptional freshman group of players, the Lady Chargers are poised for big things at the district, regional and state level.

  • It will be guards galore for NB

     HEBRON ESTATES – If North Bullitt head coach Amber Courtney was working in the NBA then she would be looking to trade some guards for some ‘bigs.’

    But you can’t do that in high school basketball. You have to play with the cards that you are dealt. So, Courtney and her guard-oriented Lady Eagles will go into battle this winter long on back-court talent and experience and short on tall.

    The Lady Eagles don’t have a player over 5-8 this season, which leads Courtney to say that her team will start five guards each and every night.
