  • North Bullitt boys get back in the win column

     HIGHVIEW – Forget that his North Bullitt Eagles have only come home with five victories this season. 

    Head coach Korey Craddock is pleased with the strides his inexperienced team is making.

    On Saturday, the Eagles avoided an early hole and held on for a 55-50 victory over Christian Academy of Indiana.

    “”We’re getting better,” said Craddock.

  • Lady Cougars fall just short

      SHEPHERDSVILLE — The two teams will face once another in the first round of the 23rd District tournament.

    But, in their regular season encounter, the Moore Mustangs played a little better down the stretch to take home a 41-37 victory over the host Bullitt Central Lady Cougars.

    Bullitt Central evened the score at 33 with 3:06 to play when Chloe Phillips scored.

    The home team drew to within 38-37 with 1:09 to go as Brooke Ewing scored on a rebound.

  • Mustangs just out-mature BC

      SHEPHERDSVILLE -- When you lose by 34 points and your coach is not unhappy, you have a good hold on reality.

    But, Bullitt Central coach Jessie Curry was actually very pleased with his team’s play on Friday against a very talented Moore Mustang team.

    That optimism stems from the fact that the young Cougars were within 13 points of Moore early in the third quarter.

    “They battled for three quarters,” Curry said of his players. “We’re young and tonight we played against grown men.”

  • Sixth Region showdown goes to Tigers 64-54

     FERN CREEK – In a clash of both 24th District and Sixth Region powerhouses, the Bullitt East Chargers won the first half against Fern Creek on Friday.

    Unfortunately, the home standing Tigers, behind the play off the bench of Clint Wickliffe, put together a strong second half and roared past the Chargers en route to a 64-54 victory.

  • Lady Chargers grab two wins

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The first game of the weekend might not have gone as smoothly as head coach Chris Stallings would have liked, but the Bullitt East Lady Chargers picked up the pace on Saturday.

    Against Fern Creek on the road on Friday, the Lady Chargers seemingly had the game amongst 24th District rivals well in hand, but they could never put the game away. After being up by as many as 20 points in the third quarter, Bullitt East let the Lady Tigers get within eight points before securing the 66-58 victory.

  • BE rolls on a holiday

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – For the fact that it was basically a national holiday and there was wall-to-wall football on TV at home, but the Bullitt East Chargers focused very well on basketball last Monday as they crushed visiting Whitefield Academy 89-38.

  • BC teams split two

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Despite scoring just eight points in the fourth quarter, the Bullitt Central Cougars managed to hold off a spirited comeback by visiting Meade County 65-63 on Tuesday.

    The Green Wave had opened the season with a 7-1 record and while the team has been struggling of late, they were a big school with a winning record at 8-5 when they got to Shepherdsville. However, the youthful Cougars did enough right to get perhaps the most impressive victory to this part of the season.

  • Snow grabs two NB games

     HEBRON ESTATES – On Thursday of last week, North Bullitt and Assumption had to postpone a game because of inclement weather.

    This was actually the second time this game has had to be moved. It was originally scheduled for the first week of the season, but Assumption asked that it be moved because of an ‘open house’ at the school that night.

    Still, as of Friday, no new date for the game had been set.

  • East, North both in Girls’ LIT

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – For the third straight season, both Bullitt East and North Bullitt earned spots in the Republic Bank/Coca-Cola Consolidated Girls’ Louisville Invitational Tournament set to start on Jan. 24 at Bellarmine University’s Knights Hall.

  • Late dry spell costs NB big upset chance

     HEBRON ESTATES – Following an exchange of baskets to open the fourth quarter, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles on Tuesday had a 51-50 lead over visiting Nelson County, the state’s 19th ranked team.

    Unfortunately, that turned out to be the high-water mark for the green and gold as Nelson County scored 12 of the next 14 points over a five-minute span to take control of the game. By the final buzzer, the Lady Cardinals had pulled out a 71-62 victory by outscoring North Bullitt 23-13 in the final quarter.
