  • East bests Central again

    LOUISVILLE – Eleven days didn’t make much difference for the Bullitt East Lady Chargers when they squared off with Louisville Central in the first round of the Republic Bank/Coca-Cola Girls’ Louisville Invitational Tournament last week.

         That was the amount of time since Bullitt East had traveled into Louisville and beat the Lady Yellowjackets 66-59. The pairings for the Girls’ LIT had them matched up again and this time the Lady Chargers put the defensive clamps on the athletic Central team, winning 57-43.

  • Homecoming games split at Bullitt Central on Friday

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The weather outside was frightful with snow falling, but the Bullitt Central Cougars got to celebrate the 2015 Hoops Homecoming in front of a strong crowd that saw a split of the two games.

    The second game went down to the wire before DeSales rallied with the last five points of the game to escape with a 36-34 victory. It wasn’t a win, but it was a strong showing for the Cougars as the visitors had been seeded sixth for the Boys’ Louisville Invitational Tournament, an event that Bullitt Central failed to make.

  • Cougar Quad Invitational

     There was action all over the gym floor at Bullitt Central on Saturday as the Cougar wrestling team hosted five other teams in a round-robin event.

    Snow the previous night forced the event to start two hours late, but all of the other teams, including Bullitt East, got to compete. The other teams were Fairdale, Walton-Verona, Valley and Covington Catholic.

    This was the second year for the event. 

    Bullitt East and Bullitt Central were supposed to join North Bullitt for the All-County Meet on Wednesday, but North Bullitt will not attend.

  • Bullitt East Archery Winning Big

      It has been quite a season up to this point for the Bullitt East archery program.

    At the start of the season, the team had 55 shooters.

    Before the Christmas break, the team competed in three events, winning at Thomas Nelson and at St. Gaberieal.

    After the break, the team really hits its stride, setting a new school record of 3,400 to win their own Invitational title.

    In addition, the team had six of the top ten individual finishers with the top male and female competitors.

  • Lady Eagles have just three score, but manage big win

       LOUISVILLE – The North Bullitt Lady Eagles might be the only team in the area that can say that they have an undefeated record playing Assumption High School.

    The Lady Eagles picked up a second win in as many seasons on Saturday as they defeated one of the area’s top programs 55-30 in the first game of the day at the Raatz Fence/O’Shea’s Basketball Classic at Mercy High School. The event is a one-day ‘showcase’ with some of the top teams in the area taking part.

  • Lady Chargers win two games in impressive style

     LOUISVILLE – The Bullitt East Lady Chargers have played a lot of games in the Raatz Fence/O’Shea’s Basketball Classic over the years, but just one game each season.

    This year, the Lady Chargers got the honor of playing a pair of games in the two-day ‘showcase’ event at Mercy High School and the red and gold made the most of the opportunity, picking up a pair of impressive wins in an 18-hour time frame.

  • Lady Chargers come up just short against powerful Mercy

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – In what could be the first of four meetings between the two girls’ state basketball powers, Mercy jumped on top early and then held off a late Bullitt East rally to record a 64-53 victory on Tuesday.

         The win came in the regular season game that will be used to seed the upcoming 24th District Tournament that Mercy will be hosting in late February. A year ago, Bullitt East won the regular season meeting at Mercy, but then lost to the Jaguars in the championship game of the 24th District Tournament.

  • Girls' LIT play starts Tuesday

    LOUISVILLE--It will be Bullitt County Night as the Girls' Louisville Invitational Tournament kicks-off at Knight's Hall on the campus of Bellarmine University.

    For the first time ever, all three Bullitt County teams will be taking part in the mid-season event. Bullitt East has played in the event in the past, winning it 20 years ago, but this will be the first time ever for North Bullitt and Bullitt Central taking part.

  • Lady Cougars overpower Moore

    OKOLONA--Get in. Get out, Don't get anyone hurt.

    That was pretty much the bottom line for the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars on Tuesday as they traveled into Jefferson County for a 23rd District shutdown with Moore.

    Already nursing injuries, both long and short term, the Lady Cougars just needed to wrap up district play with a win to claim the number two spot in the first-round of the post-season.

    Coach Kyle Roach's team did that, jumping out to a 19-2 lead in the first quarter and then rolling to a 64-24 victory.

  • Cougars hold on late, beat Mustangs 46-39

     OKOLONA – Fortunately for the Bullitt Central Cougars, free throw shooting is only a part of being a successful basketball team.

         That was obvious on Tuesday night as the maroon and gray struggled mightily at the charity stripe, but still managing to pick-up an important win as they slipped past Moore 46-39.
