High School Sports

  • Lady Chargers hit with injuries

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The start of the high school basketball season is still three weeks away, but it has already been a trying one for the Bullitt East Lady Chargers.

    Expected to be one of the top teams in the state as well as the top challenger to defending state champion Butler in the always-tough Sixth Region, the Lady Chargers have already lost a pair of key cogs to season-ending knee injuries.

  • Chargers find no magic on road in defeat

        BEREA – An up and down season for the Bullitt East Chargers ended on a down note on Friday as the 2016 came to a close with a 32-13 loss to Madison Southern in the first round of the Class 5-A, Region 3 bracket.
        With the win, Madison Southern advances to the second round where they will host North Bullitt, a 49-28 winner over Montgomery County.
        Bullitt East’s season ends with a 3-8 record and a third straight season with a first-round loss in the post-season.

  • Eagles advance after near perfect offensive night

        HEBRON ESTATES -- With a bye week following a pair of one-point losses, North Bullitt head coach Adam Billings decided to give his Eagles a little time off.
        In the first round of the Class 5A playoffs on Friday, it looked like Billings’ tactic was perfect.
        With a near perfect performance by quarterback Andrew Brown, North Bullitt was in control the entire way en route to a 49-28 victory over Montgomery County.

  • Cougars play on after OT victory

        LAWRENCEBURG – Despite squandering a 21-point cushion in the first half and a 14-point lead in the third quarter, Bullitt Central made the most of overtime on Friday, scoring on the second play and then letting the defense do the rest as the Cougars survived at Anderson County 31-24.

  • Area teams could be very competitive this November

        SHEPHERDSVILLE – I’ll be the first to admit that no Bullitt County football team has really jumped up and grabbed the imagination of their fan bases this fall.

  • North at home, BC and BE on the road

        SHEPHERDSVILLE – The high school football play-offs locally will have a somewhat different look starting on Friday as the three area teams will be competing with teams from far outside of the Jefferson County zip codes for the first time in a number of years.
        Last year, no area team traveled any further from home than Fairdale and even in the second round North Bullitt only had to travel to Fern Creek.

  • Four local runners headed to State CC finals

        LOUISVILLE – Competing against some of the best runners in the state, a total of four Bullitt County competitors earned spots on Saturday at the Class 3-A, Region 3 Cross-Country Championships this coming Saturday at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington.
        While none of the three boys’ and three girls’ squads advanced to Lexington, something the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars had done last year, it was still a strong showing. All four runners advanced as individuals and all four are underclassmen.

  • Local athletes shine during KTCCCA state championships

        LEXINGTON – A large number of Bullitt County runners took part on Oct. 22 in the Elementary and Middle school State Cross-Country Championships which were held at Masterson Station Park near Lexington.
        There were many runners from Mount Washington who during the season train together as part of the East Running Club. For this meet, they each represented their own schools, be it at the elementary or middle school level.

  • NB second, BC third, East fourth in final seedings

        SHEPHERDSVILLE – Now I know how people felt in the 1930s waiting for election results, sitting and waiting for the ticker-tape machine to slowly click off the results.
        It was that way Friday night for me and North Bullitt and Bullitt Central football coaches as they sat and stared at their Iphones or Ipads waiting for the results from area football games to flash on the screen.

  • Football tie-breaker up in the air

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- After the final three Class 5-A, Region 3 games were played last Friday, the three Bullitt County teams were all tied at 3-2 for the second, third and fourth-place spots for the play-offs which start next Friday throughout Kentucky.

    Unfortunately, the tie won’t be broken until late on Friday when results from other games across the state are tabulated.

    The tie-breaking system takes the number of wins of teams that the squads involved in the tie have beaten during the season.
