  • Early hole is more than BC can overcome

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – A little bit of a nervous start proved fatal for the Bullitt Cougars on Tuesday in the opening round of the Class Act Boys’ Sixth Region Tournament.

    Playing at home for the first time in a regional tournament in four years, the Cougars fell behind Jeffersontown 27-8 midway through the second quarter. Bullitt Central rallied to within 28-22 at halftime and when Jacob Mann drained a three-pointer to open the second half, the maroon and gray were within three points.

  • Mercy ends NB dream season in Saturday’s final

     VALLEY STATION -- A big crowd and a huge effort couldn’t  pull the North Bullitt Lady Eagles through in the Sixth Region final.

    The Lady Eagles fell to Mercy 64-48 in the championship  game Saturday at Valley High.

    Mercy jumped on top early and North Bullitt could not make a run. In fact, North Bullitt’s only lead of the game came on Hailey Free’s three-pointer to make it 5-4.

    The balanced attack of Mercy and foul troubles for the Lady Eagles were too much for North Bullitt to overcome.

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – Just when everybody felt they had a handle on football realignment for the 2019-2022 seasons, the KHSAA Board of Control threw a couple of curve balls last week when they unveiled the first proposal of the future of the sport in Kentucky.
