High School Sports

  • Scheduling continues to change

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – For decades upon decades, local basketball fans pretty much set their schedules each winter around the intra-county boy/girl doubleheaders between the three area hoops programs.

    That was pretty much the backbone of the schedules as six of the roughly ten Friday nights in a season (not counting the two Friday’s in the Christmas break) had the big games pretty much right there front and center.

  • East girls will need time to reach potential

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – Over 18 years of being the head coach of the Bullitt East Lady Chargers, Chris Stallings have never once announced that any of his teams was better in December than it was in March.

    That will again be the case this season, but perhaps to an even greater degree. With no starters returning from last season’s 24th District Champions and Sixth Region runners-up, the 2017-18 Lady Chargers have a lot of room for growth over the next three months.

  • HIGH SCHOOL HOOPS

      The high school hoops season is underway. Throughout the season, we will send out email blasts to update you on games throughout the week.

  • Lady Eagles feel they can compete in 6th

     HEBRON ESTATES — David Marion will have a problem he hasn’t faced during his tenure at North Bullitt.

    How to divide up minutes while leading a team which is ranked any where from second to fourth in the pre-season Sixth Region standings.

    Marion will not be afraid to go 11 deep on his bench in a season that looks very promising.

    “We have high expectations,” Marion said of the season. “We just have to learn to play well in the big game.”

  • Girton back in school at NB, but not yet cleared to play

      HEBRON ESTATES — Last season, North Bullitt boys’ basketball coach Korey Craddock got some disappointing news.

    Corey Girton, an athletic player who would have been a cornerstone of the program, opted to attend a prep school in South Carolina.

    This year, Girton is back walking the hallways of North Bullitt.

    However, it is undecided yet on whether Girton will be able to play during his junior season.

    An appeal to allow Girton to play has been sent to the Kentucky High School Athletic Association.

  • Experience should fuel NB’s return to success

     HEBRON ESTATES -- It was a painful and frustrating 2016-17 campaign for Korey Craddock and his North Bullitt Eagles.

    A transfer of one player and an injury to the team’s leading returning scorer led to a tough season.

    However, the silver lining is that a lot of young players, including an eighth grader and several freshman, could speed up the recovery for the North Bullitt program.

    “I’m optimistic,” Craddock said of his current team. “We have a mix of youth and experience.”

  • Central ready to make another step forward

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Following a season in which the team was under-sized, inexperienced and often over-matched, yet still managed to win 10 games, the Bullitt Central Cougars are looking for bigger and better things in head coach Jessie Curry’s second season at the helm.

  • East expects to contend in Sixth by March

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – A high school basketball season is a marathon, not a sprint.

    That is why Bullitt East boys’ basketball coach Jason Couch isn’t nearly as worried about where his team is starting the 2017-18 season as he is excited about where the team could be when the post-season begins in late-February.

  • Roby will be at UL in the spring, not with BE

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – While Taylor Roby went through the signing ceremony at Bullitt East recently, she will not be playing softball for the Lady Chargers in the spring.

    At the suggestion of the University of Louisville, Roby will graduate from Bullitt East at the end of the first semester in December and will then start taking classes at Louisville in January. She will then redshirt next spring with the Lady Cards before becoming a full member of that team in the spring of 2019.

  • East’s Poole makes quick work of picking Spalding

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – When the high school soccer season ended on Oct. 20 for Julia Poole, she thought she had played her last competitive game.

    But in short order, feelings of look not playing the sport she loved started to creep into her mind. A couple of phone calls later Poole was in contact with Spalding head coach Shilo Rayburn and a visit was arranged. On the spot, Poole committed to the Golden Eagles.

    On Nov. 9, at a ceremony in the Bullitt East Media Center, Poole made it all official, signing with the school located in downtown Louisville.
