High School Sports

  • BC girls looking to build behind Grahams

        SHEPHERDSVILLE – Upon first glance at the roster, the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars don’t look that young headed into the 2016-17 season.
        But upon a deeper look, this will very much be a learning season for a very inexperienced team.
        In fact, first-year head coach Josh Cravens, who takes over for Kyle Roach, there are just two players who have ever started a varsity game. Just one more has ever played in a varsity game.

  • East’s Duvall makes it official with Louisville

        MOUNT WASHINGTON – The recruiting game at the high end is never easy.
        Imagine having to go through it all twice.
        That is what happened to Bullitt East standout Lindsey Duvall. Finally, over the past ten days it all came to an end when the 5-9 shooting guard signed her national letter of intent with the University of Louisville.

  • Eagles left it all on the field on Friday evening

        CRESTWOOD – Emotional pain was the name of the game on Friday after the North Bullitt Eagles lost to South Oldham 45-42 in the championship game of Class 5-A, Region 3.
        Losing the last game of any season is difficult in any sport and it is certainly emotional as many of the key players are often seniors who are playing their final games for ‘their school.’

  • Momentum ditches North in fourth

        CRESTWOOD – Everybody can define ‘momentum’, but no one can control it.
        That goes for North Bullitt football coach Adam Billings. His Eagles seemed to be in complete control early in the fourth quarter on Friday in the Class 5-A, Region 3 championship game at South Oldham. However, the Dragons wrestled momentum away from the green and gold and then scored the final 17 points of the game to win 45-42.

  • North has chance to go where none has before

     HEBRON ESTATES – By reaching the third round of the Class 5-A play-offs, the North Bullitt Eagles have the chance to go where the program has been only a few times in the past.

    This will be the first time that North Bullitt has played for a regional championship since the 2008 season. In fact, since 2008, the Eagles have won just three post-season games -- winning single games in 2010, 2011 and then last season when the green and gold beat Doss.

  • NB gets second chance against Dragons

     HEBRON ESTATES – It’s not often in high school football that you get a chance at redemption against a rival in the same season.

    The North Bullitt Eagles will get that rare opportunity on Friday when the green and gold make the short trip around Louisville to take on fellow Class 5-A, District 3 rival South Oldham in the championship game of Region 3.

  • North’s Benz signs with Kentucky Wesleyan

     HEBRON ESTATES – The recruiting game is never easy and seldom a sure thing, but for North Bullitt baseball player Blake Benz, the second time round might have been the perfect outcome.

    Back during the summer, Benz had an offer on the table from Evansville University, but as sometimes happens, priorities change and coaches head in different directions. This time, Benz was the odd man out.

  • Dragons breathe fire on Cougars’ upset hopes

      CRESTWOOD – For the first 16 minutes of Friday’s Class 5-A, Regional 3 semi-final, the Bullitt Central Cougars had a perfect game plan and perfectly executed it against South Oldham.

    Unfortunately, at some point the high-powered Dragons had to get the ball. Once they did, the home team found the end zone at will, scoring 20 points in the final 4:12 of the first half before rolling to a 37-0 win.

  • Brown shows what he can do for NB

     BEREA — When the North Bullitt Eagles fell behind 14-0 in the first five minutes of play Friday  night, there was no panic along the sidelines.

    After all, North Bullitt head coach Adam Billings has always said that games are won over the course of four quarters.

    On Friday, in the second round of the Class 5A post-season tournament, the visiting Eagles would overcome that deficit and roar back with a 54-41 victory over the host Madison Southern Eagles.

  • NB, BC enter round two of post-season

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – For the first time since 2008, two Bullitt County football teams won opening round games last Friday.

    Now, North Bullitt will go on the road this Friday to take on Madison Southern while Bullitt Central has a rematch with South Oldham on the road in PeeWee Valley.

    Both games on Friday are set for 7:30 p.m.
