  • North rallies late to beat Central

     HEBRON ESTATES – Down two games to one after dropping the third game 25-12 to arch-rival Bullitt Central, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles needed a big rally on Thursday.

    The green and gold got just that as first-year head coach Scott Whitlow’s team surged back to force a fifth game with a 25-19 win in game four and then rallied from an early hole to win the fifth game 15-9.

  • Lady Chargers retain Bullitt Cup

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Girls’ golf is not normally a fast-moving sport, but a high school tournament doesn’t normally take six days.

    That was the case with the 2013 Bullitt Cup after lightening halted play on a Tuesday at Heritage Hill Golf Course. Play did not resume until last Monday with the Bullitt East Lady Chargers retaining the traveling trophy that is sponsored by Schmid Funeral Home.

    Bullitt East with the minimum of four golfers, won the event with a 197 total. Bullitt Central and North Bullitt tied for the runner-up spot at 271.

     HEBRON ESTATES – After scoring on a penalty kick in the opening moments of the match, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles never took their foot off the gas pedal on Wednesday as they beat Bullitt Central 8-0 in girls’ soccer action.

    It was the first meeting between the two rivals since they met last season in the championship game of the 23rd District Tournament, a game that North Bullitt won 6-2.

  • Undefeated BC and BE hit the road; NB home

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The undefeated Bullitt Central Cougars and Bullitt East Chargers will take a definite step up in competition this week as both programs go on the road.

    Bullitt Central has a road trip for the ages as they will travel to Paducah on Saturday to take on the newly formed McCracken County Mustangs. The game is part of the Patriot Bowl, a three-game showcase of games. The Cougars will travel over 400 miles round-trip on Saturday.

  • Area CC teams are getting active

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – With Labor Day now in the review mirror, the area cross-country programs are starting to heat up with meets nearly ever week.

  • East sweeps county rivals; NB and BC meet Thursday

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Coming off a disappointing effort four nights earlier, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers got back in winning form on Monday as they rolled past a struggling Bullitt Central team 25-9, 25-12, 25-12.

    The win came six days after Bullitt East had gone on the road and beat North Bullitt in five games, taking the final game 15-13. In that match, the Lady Chargers played without two key starters. That led into a district loss to Whitefield Academy on Thursday in Jefferson County by a 25-10, 26-24, 25-13 count.

  • Chargers set to extract revenge from Spencer

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – As Kahn said in the Star Trek movies – ‘revenge is a dish best served cold.’

    That will be the mindset this week for the Bullitt East Chargers as the red and gold take on neighboring rival Spencer County. The Bears have started the season 2-1.

    But it is not so much this season that is on the minds of the Mount Washington crowd. A year ago, the Chargers traveled to Taylorsville for the first time ever for a football game and came away with a 27-0 loss that left head coach Darrell Vincent upset.

     HEBRON ESTATES – Scoring twice in the first 15 minutes of the contest, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers rode that quick start to a 4-0 victory on Monday over North Bullitt in a battle of two of the top teams in the Sixth Region.

    This was the first contest between the two programs since Bullitt East beat the Lady Eagles by the same 4-0 score in last season’s regional semi-finals.

    After dropping the first two games of the season, the win on Monday was the fifth in a row for the Lady Chargers. North Bullitt dropped to 3-2-2.

  • Local hoops will be missing a key game this winter

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Over the past 33 years, since the formation of Bullitt East in 1980, I never dreamed that I would be typing what is to follow.

    On Monday, North Bullitt athletic director Ryan Bringhurst confirmed what had been feared for the past few months, that this winter there will be no boys’ basketball game between North Bullitt and Bullitt East. At the same time, Bringhurst said that no date has been found for a girls’ game but that there is still a chance that contest could be scheduled in the next several weeks.
