     MOUNT WASHINGTON  -- For the third year in a row,  the Bullitt East cheerleaders have traveled to the Kentucky Horse Park Alltech Arena and each of those trips have resulted in a state championship.

    By the narrowest of margins, the Bullitt East cheerleaders won the All-Girls Super team division.

     HEBRON ESTATES – Both North Bullitt head coach Korey Craddock and Bullitt Central mentor Jessie Curry will be the first to admit that at this point in the season each of their teams are a little offensively challenged.

  • Lady Eagles take no prisoners in showdown

     HEBRON ESTATES – The North Bullitt Lady Eagles came out on Friday and took care of business, showing why they are the favorites to win a sixth straight 23rd District title as they rolled past visiting Bullitt Central 75-29.

    Bullitt Central started the season 3-1 heading into this game, but first- year head coach Josh Cravens knows that he has a very inexperienced team and while they will get better and have better nights, the Lady Cougars were no match for their arch-rivals on this night.
