  • Lady Chargers score early and often in routing Doss

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – There is a reason that Bullitt East Lady Charger head coach Chris Stallings doesn’t schedule Doss during the regular season.

    The reason was on clear display on Monday as the Lady Chargers folded, bent, spindled and mutilated the Lady Dragons 93-27 in an opening round game of the Girls’ Sixth Region Basketball Tournament.

  • Fairdale no match for North

     HEBRON ESTATES – Most high school basketball coaches love to talk about ‘playing one game at a time’ and that often includes North Bullitt head coach David Marion.

    Most of the time, but not all the time.

  • NB rambles on, beats Southern; Central girls get eliminated

     HEBRON ESTATES -- It was a tale of two seasons for teams competing in the 23rd District girls’ basketball tournament.

    For North Bullitt, there were sights set on the Sixth Region tournament.

    For Bullitt Central, there were sights set for next season where a very young team will return with a lot more experience.

    In the semifinals of the district tournament Tuesday, North Bullitt advanced to the final with an easy victory over Southern.

  • Second half breakdowns cost East against J-town

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – You can never have a big enough lead at halftime.

    That was the story for the Bullitt East Chargers on Wednesday in the opening round of the Boys’ 24th District Tournament. The red and gold were up 38-29, but had left points on the court.

  • North, Central play well but can’t secure a victory

     HEBRON ESTATES – Seldom will you have two coaches who are so upbeat after suffering season-ending tournament losses.

    But that was the case on Wednesday as a pair of outmanned teams gave the victors all they wanted.

    In the semifinal opener of the 23rd District boys’ basketball tournament, Bullitt Central fell to the top-seeded Moore Mustangs 68-48.

    And, in the nightcap, North Bullitt fell to Southern 64-53.

  • UPDATE: Sixth Region draw works out fine

      UPDATE (Tuesday, Feb. 28): On Wednesday at Valley High School, one Bullitt County high school basketball team will remain alive in the post-season.

    Bullitt East will face North Bullitt in the second round of the 2017 Sixth Region Girls' Basketball Tournament following big first-round wins at home.

    The Lady Chargers won 93-27 over Doss, while the Lady Eagles earned an equally impressive 81-37 victory over Fairdale.

  • Lady Eagles have more than enough for Moore

      HEBRON ESTATES – For the sixth straight year, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles took home the 23rd District basketball championship.

    For Bellarmine University signee Lauren Deel, her fourth consecutive title is sweet.

    But, losing a number of seniors last spring, Deel admitted that she had just a little bit of concern about this season.

    Worry no more as North Bullitt goes into the first round of the Sixth Region tournament tonight sporting a 25-7 record.
