  • Roby continues to play football despite some early obstacles

    MOUNT WASHINGTON—When Luke Roby was four years old, his dad signed amputation papers for his son’s foot. Now, 11 years later, Roby continues to defy the odds as he finished his second year playing football for Bullitt East.

    In May 2006, Roby was playing in the backyard at his grandparent’s house with his older siblings. His grandfather had recently been in a car accident and was still in the hospital. Roby’s dad, Skee, had brought the kids along while he mowed the yard.

  • State’s top girls’ teams converge on BE Saturday for Hooparama

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – It will be Louisville versus the rest of Kentucky on Saturday when Bullitt East plays host to the annual Lady Charger Hooparama.

    This year’s event has 12 teams taking part in scrimmages for the upcoming basketball season. Each of the six encounters will have a one-hour junior-varsity scrimmage and then a two-hour varsity workout.

    Both gyms at Bullitt East will be in use for this event.

  • Knights sign Scott who will miss senior season

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – Bullitt East senior Kathleen Scott was all smiles on Wednesday during a ceremony in the school’s Media Center in which she signed to play basketball for the Bellarmine University Lady Knights.

    It had been late in her junior season that Scott had committed to coach Chancellor Dugan’s program.

    In fact, all Bellarmine had to do was offer and Scott was on-board.

    “When they asked, I knew,” the senior said following the signing ceremony. “I thought it was the best fit for me.”

  • Cougars frozen out at Covington Catholic

    COVINGTON – On Friday night in the second round of the Class 5-A, Region 2 play-offs, the Bullitt Central Cougars won the coin flip before the start of the game against Covington Catholic.

    Taking on the number one team in the state, a squad ranked even above traditional Kentucky powers like Trinity and St. Xavier, the Cougars had to savor every positive, no matter how small in taking on the Colonels in a game planned in below freezing temperatures in a steady breeze.

  • State a learning experience for young runners

      LEXINGTON – The minds were willing but the legs were a little weak on Saturday for most of the Bullitt County runners as they participated in the Class 3-A Kentucky State Cross-Country Championships at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington.

  • Cougars have a chance to face the best Friday

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – You can’t beat the best if you don’t play the best.

    That is the mantra the Bullitt Central Cougars will take into Friday’s Class 3-A, Region 2 semi-final when they travel to northern Kentucky to take on Covington Catholic, the top-ranked team in the state in many polls no matter the classification and that includes Trinity and St. Xavier.

  • Top-ranked Cov. Catholic too much for BE

     COVINGTON -- On a cold, breezy November night, the Bullitt East Chargers learned a valuable lesson.

    No matter the effort, it is hard when a team has been riddled with injuries to go onto an opponent’s field and come out the victor.

    And, when that opponent is the top ranked team in at least one poll, that task borders on the impossible.

    Covington Catholic displayed why many think the Colonels is the best team in Kentucky with a 56-14 victory.

    This came in the first round of the Class 5A post-season tournament.

  • Big pass plays lift Cougars past Colonels
