  • 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.

  • Refreshed Lady Cougars ready for big season

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The 2013-14 season didn’t end badly for the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars, it just didn’t end the way they had hoped it would.

    After closing out the regular season with seven wins in the last eight games, the Lady Cougars were peaking at just the right time. Unfortunately, two starters, Lexi Graham and Kasey Renfrow, went down with serious knee injuries in the final games.

  • BE’s Jacob Bowles set to play for Southern Indiana

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Bullitt East senior baseball player Jacob Bowles will be the first to admit that he has been a ‘late bloomer’ when it comes to his sport.

    In fact, there was a time when his father, Bullitt East baseball coach Jeff Bowles, sat down with is son and mentioned the possibility of having to cut his son from a future Charger team. That was when Jacob was still in middle school, but the message took hold and the younger Bowles worked hard at his sport.

  • Local standout Jordan Vorbrink signs with U of L

     LOUISVILLE – Tuesday was a red-letter day for Shepherdsville resident Jordan Vorbrink.

    The senior at Louisville Mercy High School fulfilled a lifelong dream as she signed to play softball at the University of Louisville. It all became official in a signing ceremony in her high school auditorium along with nine of her classmates who were also announcing college destinations.

    (Vorbrink had actually signed with the Lady Cardinals the previous Wednesday, the first day of the NCAA early signing period).

  • Cougars have the starters for another deep run

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Coming off the program’s best season in a decade, a season that included a district title and a run to the semi-finals of the Sixth Region Tournament, the Bullitt Central Cougars are poised for another successful winter.

    Yes, the Cougars suffered heavy graduation losses that included Bullitt County Player of the Year Brett Bourland as well as starters Jacob Wampler, Zack Humphrey and Zach Martin.

  • North Bullitt girls will be walking a fine line

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Nobody was happier than head coach David Marion when 14 middle school players showed up to practice with the North Bullitt varsity last Friday.

    No, the 14 players won’t be asked to play any varsity minutes this winter, but their arrival more than doubled the number of players who had been practicing with the Lady Eagles. Earlier in the month, Marion had been forced to call off the team’s green/gold scrimmage for a lack of players.
