  • All area teams hitting the road this week

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After a few days off for Christmas, five of the six area basketball teams will be back in action this week as the holiday tournament merry-go-round continues.

    The Bullitt Central Lady Cougars, after playing at LaRue County last week, will not be playing any games this week. The team will return to action on next Tuesday with a game at North Oldham and will then be part of a key boy/girl doubleheader against 23rd District rivals Moore at home on Friday, Jan. 6.

  • Chargers get the best of Waggener...again

     BUCKNER – In this new computer age, coaches now rarely use the word ‘rebuilding.’ Instead, the new word is a ‘reboot.’

    Well for the Bullitt East Chargers, last week’s championship game in the Pegasus Sports Network Best in Hoops Tournament at Oldham County was a reboot of a reboot.

  • Bullitt Central heads to break by winning three

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After starting the season with just one win in six outings, including the fact that four of the five losses were by at least 18 points, it might have seemed a long shot for the Bullitt Central Cougars to reach four wins by the end of the season.

    Don’t fret Cougar fans. Bullitt Central won three games in three days before taking a week off for Christmas. Coach Jessie Curry’s team is now 4-5 and preparing for a trip to Allen County-Scottsville this week for the programs’ only holiday tournament appearance.

  • East gets impressive win over Waggener

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – For just over half a game this season, first-year Bullitt East head coach Jason Couch has had his full complement of players.

    First, senior Konnor Polson and Derrick Donigan were out. When they both returned for the Pleasure Ridge Park game last Tuesday, the Chargers were at full strength right up until the time that senior Conner Green went down with a sprained ankle.

  • Lady Eagles win, but Eagles fall to Holy Cross

     HEBRON ESTATES -- Seconds into Friday night’s basketball game against Holy Cross, North Bullitt head coach David Marion felt it would be one of those nights.

    Yes, his Lady Eagles defeated Holy Cross 63-43.

    But, it was far from the performance Marion wants out of his team.

    “”We didn’t focus,” said Marion. “We weren’t intense.”

    No matter the combination, Marion was not pleased with his team’s performance.

  • East ready to host big holiday event during busy week

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Basketballs will be bouncing all across the area the next two weeks as the holiday hoops tournament season takes hold for all six of the area basketball programs.

    This week, five of the six will be playing in area events (The Bullitt Central boys do not play this week) while during the week between the two major holidays, two of the area teams will be heading out of state while three more will be playing within the state (the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars do not play during that week).

  • East’s ‘full’ team wins first game at PRP

     SHIVELY – Playing with a full deck for the first time this season, the Bullitt East Chargers picked up a huge win on Tuesday as they defeated Pleasure Ridge Park 66-62.

    Amazingly, while the two powerful Sixth Region programs have met numerous times in the Louisville Invitational Tournament and the Sixth Region Tournament, this was the first time Bullitt East had ever traveled to Pleasure Ridge Park for a basketball game.

  • Central splits pair of games with Southern

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Any win is a good win.

    That is a phrase a lot of high school basketball coaches like to use, especially after three game losing skids. That is exactly what Bullitt Central Lady Cougar head coach Josh Cravens was saying on Tuesday after his Lady Cougars survived a tough 55-52 game to beat 23rd District rival Southern.

  • Bullitt East wins Dixie Duals title
  • Bullitt Central again finishes as state runner-up

     LEXINGTON – Since winning the Kentucky Co-Ed State Cheerleading Championship in 2013, the Bullitt Central program has been locked in a battle with Graves County for the top spot on the podium in what has now become the Large Co-Ed Division.
