High School Sports

  • Cougars learn new lessons

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Not a lot of high school basketball games are played at 9 a.m. in the morning.

    That was just one of the lessons that a young Bullitt Central team had to learn last week as they played three games in the South Central Bank-Helton Classic at Allen County-Scottsville High School.

  • Eagles struggle on the road at Spencer tourney

     TAYLORSVILLE – Three days in Taylorsville before the holidays didn’t put the North Bullitt Eagles in a very festive mood.

    At least not as festive as they were a year earlier.

    Returning to the Nick Burns Memorial Tournament after winning the title each of the past two seasons, the Eagles dropped all three games in 2016. That included an opening loss to Shelby County, the team they had beaten two years earlier in the title game.

  • Lady Cougars get a good ‘preview’ for Jan. contests

     HODGENVILLE – Just call last week’s trip for the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars to LaRue County to participate in the R.E. Williams Holiday Classic a preview to some upcoming games.

    Bullitt Central won its opening game in the eight-team event, beating Logan County 49-46. The team then seemed on the verge of reaching the championship game when they led LaRue County late before the Lady Hawks rallied to win 42-41.

  • Male pulls away late to beat East in final

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Queen of the Commonwealth Tournament last week at Bullitt East got just the final everyone was expecting, but a hot-shooting Male squad pulled away late to record a 74-53 victory over the host team to claim the tallest trophy.

    Just three weeks earlier, Bullitt East had traveled to Preston Highway and played the state’s pre-season number five squad to within an 81-78 final.

  • Lady Eagles lose the battle to illness at BE tourney

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – A virus that moved through the North Bullitt Lady Eagle basketball team side-tracked any hopes the squad had of making a strong showing in the Queen of the Commonwealth Tournament at Bullitt East.

    Already facing a loaded bracket of teams, the Lady Eagles had absolutely no chance in Monday’s opening game of the 16-team event when the illness sidelined North Bullitt’s two best players – senior Lauren Deel and junior Hailey Free.

  • All area teams hitting the road this week

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After a few days off for Christmas, five of the six area basketball teams will be back in action this week as the holiday tournament merry-go-round continues.

    The Bullitt Central Lady Cougars, after playing at LaRue County last week, will not be playing any games this week. The team will return to action on next Tuesday with a game at North Oldham and will then be part of a key boy/girl doubleheader against 23rd District rivals Moore at home on Friday, Jan. 6.

  • Chargers get the best of Waggener...again

     BUCKNER – In this new computer age, coaches now rarely use the word ‘rebuilding.’ Instead, the new word is a ‘reboot.’

    Well for the Bullitt East Chargers, last week’s championship game in the Pegasus Sports Network Best in Hoops Tournament at Oldham County was a reboot of a reboot.

  • Bullitt Central heads to break by winning three

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After starting the season with just one win in six outings, including the fact that four of the five losses were by at least 18 points, it might have seemed a long shot for the Bullitt Central Cougars to reach four wins by the end of the season.

    Don’t fret Cougar fans. Bullitt Central won three games in three days before taking a week off for Christmas. Coach Jessie Curry’s team is now 4-5 and preparing for a trip to Allen County-Scottsville this week for the programs’ only holiday tournament appearance.

  • East gets impressive win over Waggener

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – For just over half a game this season, first-year Bullitt East head coach Jason Couch has had his full complement of players.

    First, senior Konnor Polson and Derrick Donigan were out. When they both returned for the Pleasure Ridge Park game last Tuesday, the Chargers were at full strength right up until the time that senior Conner Green went down with a sprained ankle.

  • Lady Eagles win, but Eagles fall to Holy Cross

     HEBRON ESTATES -- Seconds into Friday night’s basketball game against Holy Cross, North Bullitt head coach David Marion felt it would be one of those nights.

    Yes, his Lady Eagles defeated Holy Cross 63-43.

    But, it was far from the performance Marion wants out of his team.

    “”We didn’t focus,” said Marion. “We weren’t intense.”

    No matter the combination, Marion was not pleased with his team’s performance.
