  • BE’s McKinley headed to Brescia U. to play baseball

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Getting the chance to get in on the ground floor of something special was just the right sales pitch for Bullitt East pitcher Kyle McKinley when he sat down with Brescia head coach Andrew Dickson.

    A first-year head coach who is returning to the school where he played his final two seasons of college baseball, Dickson sold McKinley on the chance to help turnaround a program that fell to an 18-35 mark last season.

    McKinley made it all official recently when he signed with the NAIA school in Owensboro.

  • NB’s Downey surpasses 2,000 points

     Before a home game last week with Southern, North Bullitt senior Katie Downey was honored for scoring 2,000 career points by head coach David Marion.

    Downey, who has signed with Bellarmine University, has been a part of the Lady Eagle program since she was in the sixth grade.

  • Month remains in basketball regular season

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – With just a month remaining in the regular season, basketball is looking ahead to the post-season both on and off the court.

    On the court, the only really important game left is next Friday’s boys’ contest at North Bullitt when 23rd District rival Moore visits. North Bullitt can wrap up the number one seed with a win. If the Eagles beat Moore, then it won’t matter the outcome of the Feb. 10 game at Evangel, the final district game of the regular season.

     LOUISVILLE – Local bowling teams are the first of the ‘winter’ sports to enter the post-season this week and next week with Region Three competition at Ken Bowl Lanes.

  • Lady Eagles win, but still working to increase effort

     HEBRON ESTATES -- During games, North Bullitt head coach David Marion doesn’t get too loud or too emotional.

    However, during the Lady Eagles’ 64-25 blowout against Southern, Marion was not pleased with his team’s effort.

    But the end result was a positive one as the host team easily won in a District 23 showdown.

    Southern got only one lead in game as NaVesha Sheckles got the opening basket.

    Katie Downey’s drive knotted the score at 2-2.

  • BE, NB start Girls’ LIT play

     LOUISVILLE – Seemingly playing at the top of their games and as healthy as they are going to get this season, both the Bullitt East Lady Chargers and the North Bullitt Lady Eagles appear ready for this week’s Republic Bank/Coca-Cola Girls’ Louisville Invitational Tournament that will start on Tuesday at Bellarmine University’s Knight’s Hall.

    Unfortunately, both teams lost some valuable practice time and games over the weekend because of the bad weather.

  • Eagles grab a key district win over Southern

     HEBRON ESTATES -- Even when you have an offense that likes to shoot the ball, there are times when defense wins games.

    For the North Bullitt Eagles, it has been a magical season on both ends of the court.

    On Tuesday, in a major district clash against the Southern Trojans, stiff defense and a patient offense were the key to a 78-66 victory.

    The win puts North Bullitt in control of its own destiny in its goal to be the top seed in the 23rd District.

  • Sweet Mercy! Lady Chargers beat Jaguars
