  • Lady Chargers win two games in impressive style

     LOUISVILLE – The Bullitt East Lady Chargers have played a lot of games in the Raatz Fence/O’Shea’s Basketball Classic over the years, but just one game each season.

    This year, the Lady Chargers got the honor of playing a pair of games in the two-day ‘showcase’ event at Mercy High School and the red and gold made the most of the opportunity, picking up a pair of impressive wins in an 18-hour time frame.

  • Lady Chargers come up just short against powerful Mercy

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – In what could be the first of four meetings between the two girls’ state basketball powers, Mercy jumped on top early and then held off a late Bullitt East rally to record a 64-53 victory on Tuesday.

         The win came in the regular season game that will be used to seed the upcoming 24th District Tournament that Mercy will be hosting in late February. A year ago, Bullitt East won the regular season meeting at Mercy, but then lost to the Jaguars in the championship game of the 24th District Tournament.

  • Girls' LIT play starts Tuesday

    LOUISVILLE--It will be Bullitt County Night as the Girls' Louisville Invitational Tournament kicks-off at Knight's Hall on the campus of Bellarmine University.

    For the first time ever, all three Bullitt County teams will be taking part in the mid-season event. Bullitt East has played in the event in the past, winning it 20 years ago, but this will be the first time ever for North Bullitt and Bullitt Central taking part.

  • Lady Cougars overpower Moore

    OKOLONA--Get in. Get out, Don't get anyone hurt.

    That was pretty much the bottom line for the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars on Tuesday as they traveled into Jefferson County for a 23rd District shutdown with Moore.

    Already nursing injuries, both long and short term, the Lady Cougars just needed to wrap up district play with a win to claim the number two spot in the first-round of the post-season.

    Coach Kyle Roach's team did that, jumping out to a 19-2 lead in the first quarter and then rolling to a 64-24 victory.

  • Cougars hold on late, beat Mustangs 46-39

     OKOLONA – Fortunately for the Bullitt Central Cougars, free throw shooting is only a part of being a successful basketball team.

         That was obvious on Tuesday night as the maroon and gray struggled mightily at the charity stripe, but still managing to pick-up an important win as they slipped past Moore 46-39.

  • Lady Eagles look to learn even in blow-out victory

    OKOLONA -- Coaches can do all the talking they want. Their players normally understand who they are playing on any given night.

  • Eagles struggle and Trojans take advantage for the upset

    OKOLONA -- For the North Bullitt Eagles to be successful, the players have to share the ball.

  • Schmid Funeral Home Football Players of the Year

     For the 2014 season, Schmid Funeral Home and the other sponsors for the Bullitt County Player of the Year Award divided it into offensive and defensive awards.

    On offense, Bullitt Central senior Trevor Carnell picked up his third consecutive Player of the Year Award. Joining hime for the honor were Tim Gonterman and Mark Schmid of Schmid Funeral Home as well as Bullitt Central principal Andy Pohlman and athletic director Mike Gossett.

  • Local teams picking up steam at halfway mark

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – While not being invited to this year’s Boys’ Louisville Invitational Tournament, the Bullitt Central Cougars had a productive week which included a very strong outing on Thursday against Henry County.

    The game had already been scheduled and would have been played if the Cougars had been in the LIT or not. Jumping out to an 18-9 lead after one quarter, the Cougars went onto win 67-48 against a Wildcat team that had opened the season with a win over North Bullitt and entered the game with a winning record.

  • East holds on late to defeat talented Seneca

    VALLEY STATION – For three-and-a-half quarters of the team’s opening round game in the Republic Bank Boys’ Louisville Invitational Tournament, everything was going just to plan against the Seneca Redhawks.
