  • Cougar struggles continue

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Running in quicksand.

    That seems to be the situation that the Bullitt Central Cougars have found themselves in for much of the season. After starting the campaign 3-1, the maroon and gray have dropped 11 straight contests.

    The outcomes have not been lopsided for the most part, but the team just can’t seem to make the plays down the stretch to get the wins.

    Last week, the team lost a pair of games. On Monday, it was Atherton outscoring the Cougars 27-9 in the second quarter as they then held on to win 67-56.

  • Mercy week is big deal for Charger girls

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – It is Mercy week for the Bullitt East Lady Chargers, one of the biggest and toughest weeks of the regular season.

    Riding a six-game winning streak (not counting a game on Saturday at Lafayette) and winners in 10 of their last 11 games, the Lady Chargers appear ready for the challenge. Coach Chris Stallings’ team will play three games in five days against top-flight competition.

  • Frigid shooting leads to North’s first setback to a Kentucky team

     VALLEY STATION – Live by the three, die by not making the three.

    That pretty much summed up North Bullitt’s short trip to last week’s Republic Bank Louisville Invitational Tournament at Valley High School.

    The Eagles, a team that had made 12 three-pointers four days earlier in a win over Pleasure Ridge Park, made just two three-pointers on Tuesday and lost 63-45 to St. Xavier. The 45 points for North Bullitt in this game is 11 points fewer than the green and gold had scored in 14 previous games against Kentucky teams.

  • Sharpe guns down Bears from beyond the three-point line

     VALLEY STATION – It was raining three pointers on the Butler Bears on Wednesday in a second-round game of the Republic Bank Boys’ Louisville Invitational Tournament at Valley High School.

    Fueled by the hot hand of Bullitt East’s Tyler Sharpe, the Chargers pulled away from a 34-34 tie early in the third quarter to beat the Bears 75-54.

  • Frustration! 7-point fourth quarter sinks BE

     VALLEY STATION – The worst quarter of the season cost the Bullitt East Chargers dearly on Friday as the red and gold fell 54-49 to the St. Xavier Tigers.

    A seven-point fourth quarter ousted the Chargers in the quarterfinals of the Republic Bank Boys’ Louisville Invitational Tournament.

    Bullitt East opened the game with a 10-2 surge and didn’t trail until the fourth quarter. The Chargers were up 42-36 entering the final frame when the offense suddenly stopped producing.

  • Lady Cougars end tough week with lopsided win

     OKOLONA – At the end of a long week for the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars, there was a light at the end of the tunnel as the maroon and gray had some fun on Friday in defeating Moore 61-22.

    The week had started with a loss at Taylor County, a team that the Lady Cougars had beaten earlier in the season.

    Then, the team learned over the next few days that senior Lexi Graham would have very limited availability for the rest of the season because of her surgically-repaired knee. 

  • Lady Eagles suffer fourth loss, three on Saturdays

     FAIRDALE -- They’ve responded before after a bad outing.

    And North Bullitt head coach David Marion expects his Lady Eagles will respond once again.

    But that response will come after a pretty ugly outing on Saturday in the New Year Exposure Classic at Fairdale High School.

    What the Lady Eagles exposed, Marion hopes to not see in the future.

    From the opening tip to the ending horn, North Bullitt gave a flat performance in a 62-38 loss to Glasgow.

  • BE girls stay hot, win two more

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East Lady Chargers picked up consecutive wins four and five over the weekend and the team has not won eight of its last nine contests with the only loss being a five point setback to Male, the state’s third ranked team.

    On Friday, coach Chris Stallings’ team got 23 points and 11 rebounds from junior Raegan Williams as they beat visiting Fern Creek 58-43 in a game between 24th District rivals.

  • Bombs Away! Eagles get the best of PRP

     LOUISVILLE -- In the small confines of the Whitefield Academy gym, it wasn’t difficult to hear the displeasure of veteran Pleasure Ridge Park coach Dale Mabry.

    But what may have been less apparent was the smile on the face of North Bullitt’s Korey Craddock on Saturday.

    In the Whitefield Down Syndrome Classic, the Eagles shot their way to a 75-66 victory over perennial Sixth Region powers PRP.

    But the game was not that close.

  • BE faces Butler in LIT opener on Wednesday

     MOUNT WASHINGTON -- After crushing Whitefield Academy 87-32 on Friday, the Bullitt East Chargers will return to the court on Wednesday to battle Butler in the second round of the 69th annual Republic Bank Louisville Invitational Tournament.

    Butler (7-7) earned the right for a second meeting with the Chargers this season as they pulled out a 44-41 win over Western on Monday in the opening round of the Boys’ LIT.

    The Bullitt East-Butler game will be the fourth game of the day on Wednesday and is slated to start at 8:30 p.m.
