  • UPDATE: Lady Chargers in LIT Quarters

     LOUISVILLE — The Bullitt East Lady Chargers have advanced to the quarterfinals of the Republic Bank/Coca Cola Consolidated Louisville Invitational Tournament.

  • Eagles fall in strong upset bid of Bardstown

     HEBRON ESTATES — Coming off Wednesday night’s late-game collapse against Southern, North Bullitt head coach Korey Craddock didn’t know what to expect when his Eagles took the floor Friday evening.

    But, what he saw was exactly what he was hoping.

    His Eagles put together its most complete game.

    Even in the 69-66 loss, Craddock was very encouraged by his team’s play.

  • All-Bullitt County wrestling meet to be contested Wednesday at BC

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- All three Bullitt County wrestling programs will converge on Bullitt Central on Wednesday for the annual All-Bullitt County Meet.

    The teams have all wrestled each other this season in the duals format, but this will be the first and only time they will do so in a tri-match. This will be an important tune-up for all three teams before they take part in the Region 3 Tournament which for the first time will be held at Bullitt East on Saturday, Feb. 11 (with some matches on Feb. 10 if needed).

  • East and North set for LIT action on Tuesday

     LOUISVILLE -- Both Bullitt East and North Bullitt will open play in this year’s Republic Bank/Coca-Cola Girls’ Louisville Invitational Tournament on Tuesday at Bellarmine University’s Knight’s Hall.

    In fact, North Bullitt will play the very first game in the 16-team event when the Lady Eagles take the court at 3:30 against Christian Academy of Louisville. The two programs have met at this stage each of the past two seasons witht he teams splitting those games with CAL winning in 2016 and North Bullitt in 2015.

  • Chargers just crush Manual

     MOUNT WASHINGTON -- Coming out of the disappointment of a quarter-final loss in the Boys’ Louisville Invitational Tournament five days earlier, the Bullitt East Chargers started a new winning streak in a rare Wednesday game as they crushed visiting Manual 79-46.

    It has been a tough season for the Crimsons as the normally powerful program had just three wins heading to Mount Washington. Bullitt East made sure they didn’t get the fourth victory as the red and gold pulled away from an 18-14 lead after one quarter with a 23-3 advantage in the second frame.

  • BC’s struggles get worse on Tuesday

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Far from a powerhouse offensive team this winter, the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars may have hit rock bottom on Tuesday as they were beaten by visiting Bardstown 51-20.

    The game was the fourth in five days for the maroon and gray and that could well have had something to do with the struggles on offense. The Lady Cougars made just six shots the entire night in 49 attempts (12.2 percent). Bullitt Central was actually a little better outside the arc than inside it as they made three of 15 from long range.

  • Defense turns up heat to fuel pair of victories

     HEBRON ESTATES — Hailey Free’s playing career is far from over.

    However, the junior point guard got an early start in her coaching career on Tuesday.

    Entering the locker room at halftime with a narrow two-point lead over Assumption, Free suggested to head coach David Marion that the Lady Eagles open up the third quarter with its half-court trapping defense.

    “It wasn’t my call,” said Marion.

  • Nightmare final minute forces NB overtime loss

     OKOLONA – Can a high school basketball team play both great and poorly in the same game?

    The North Bullitt Eagles pretty much proved that you can do all that and more as they rallied from a large deficit to take a big lead and then squandered it all in the final 50 seconds to force overtime before finally losing.

    Confused? So was North Bullitt head coach Korey Craddock after his team dropped a 78-75 decision to Southern in a key game within the 23rd District.

  • East rallies...twice...to beat Mercy 70-66

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – When you have been on the varsity team for six seasons, are the state’s seventh leading scorer and the favorite to be named Miss Basketball, the coach doesn’t need to remind you to pick up your game in the fourth quarter of a tight contest.

    Bullitt East senior Lindsey Duvall knew what her team needed and she responded with 14 of her game-high 26 points in the final three minutes on Tuesday to help lift the Lady Chargers to a 70-66 victory over arch-rival Mercy in a battle of two of the state’s top-20 teams.

  • Eagles overcome slow start to beat Collegiate

     LOUISVILLE – Welcome back Travis Dunnavan.

    After having played less than a full game this season, the North Bullitt boys’ basketball program was certainly glad to have the team’s leading returning scorer from last season back in the line-up on Thursday against Collegiate. The game was a late addition to the schedule after both teams failed to qualify to play in the Boy’s Louisville Invitational Tournament.
