High School Sports

  • Lady Eagles win, but boys fall in OT

     HEBRON ESTATES – The first games of the 2014-15 season were worlds apart for the two basketball teams at North Bullitt High School.

         The girls’ team, playing on the road Wednesday, busted out of the gate and never looked back as they easily defeated North Oldham 71-41 after leading 26-4 after the first quarter.

  • Lady Chargers win opener North

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Outscoring visiting Presentation in each quarter, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers got the 2014-15 season off on the right foot on Tuesday of last week as they beat the Toppers 70-51.

         The Lady Chargers jumped out to a 19-9 lead and were never seriously challenged the rest of the way.

         It was actually the second game of the season for Presentation as they had won the night before, beating Waggener 62-49.

  • Sharpe explodes for 30, but Chargers not sharp in win

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – An ugly win or a pretty loss?

         If given a choice, most high school coaches will take the first choice including veteran Bullitt East mentor Bob Blackburn. Still, that said, that doesn’t mean the coach has to be beaming after the ugly win. He just has to accept it.

  • Lady Cougars show plenty of potential in win

    BARDSTOWN – The first real outing for the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars was a strong one on Tuesday as they took an early lead at Thomas Nelson and then remained in control the rest of the way before winning 55-43.

         The final score was not indicative of the way that Bullitt Central controlled the game. The maroon and gray were on top 54-33 with less than four minutes to play before the Lady Generals went on a scoring run that never endangered who would win the game.

  • BE’s Alcorn headed south to continue swimming career

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Even in a modern world with the internet, Birmingham Southern College was not on Bullitt East senior Kelli Rae Alcorn’s early radar when it came to selecting a college.

    But this is the world of www and Alcorn used it to full advantage. Back in the spring and summer, the senior put her top swimming times into web sites geared to swimming. One of the school’s that came back was Birmingham Southern, an NCAA Division III in Alabama.

  • Three ‘good’ quarters lift BE to opening win

     GOSHEN – Leading 49-27 at halftime after scoring 30 points in the second quarter, you can imagine that there wasn’t a lot of angst in the Bullitt East locker room during the break.

    Maybe there should have been.

    North Oldham bolted out of the locker room in the third quarter, outscoring the Chargers 26-11 to pull within 60-53 heading into the final frame. When Mustang standout Jonathan Henry drained a three-pointer to start the fourth quarter, it was game on.

  • ‘Super Scenario’ could be in play once more

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Last year was a season to remember for Bullitt County basketball fans and it might well be just as good this winter.

    First off, all six Bullitt County hoops programs posted winning records a year ago. In fact, each of the teams won at least 17 games.

  • Eastside shoots lights out, takes 'B' division title

    PLEASANT GROVE – Nobody expected what happened on Monday night in the championship game of the Girls’ Bullitt County Middle School ‘B’ Division Basketball Tournament at Eastside Middle School.

         No, not the fact that Eastside won the title, closing out the season with a 28-2 record.

         The great mystery was the final score. Eastside rolled early and never looked back as they beat their archrivals, and good friends, the Mount Washington Lady Generals, by a quite unexpected 46-9 score.

  • Eagles have the experience for a big season

     HEBRON ESTATES – After winning 22 games last season, with 18 in a row during one point, and with all but one player returning, the North Bullitt Eagles have reason to be excited about the upcoming season.

         While the players are always going to be excited at the start of a season, the euphoria extends to the head coach this time around. After serving as an assistant coach at Bullitt East last season, Korey Craddock is back in the Eagles’ nest as the head coach.

  • Chargers are once again regional threats

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Expectations can be a good thing. Unrealistic expectations can be a tough anchor to overcome.

    That is what Bullitt East head coach Bob Blackburn is telling the Charger Nation after his team has been ranked among the top-20 teams in the state in various pre-season polls.
