  • Cougars frozen out at Covington Catholic

    COVINGTON – On Friday night in the second round of the Class 5-A, Region 2 play-offs, the Bullitt Central Cougars won the coin flip before the start of the game against Covington Catholic.

    Taking on the number one team in the state, a squad ranked even above traditional Kentucky powers like Trinity and St. Xavier, the Cougars had to savor every positive, no matter how small in taking on the Colonels in a game planned in below freezing temperatures in a steady breeze.

  • State a learning experience for young runners

      LEXINGTON – The minds were willing but the legs were a little weak on Saturday for most of the Bullitt County runners as they participated in the Class 3-A Kentucky State Cross-Country Championships at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington.

  • Cougars have a chance to face the best Friday

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – You can’t beat the best if you don’t play the best.

    That is the mantra the Bullitt Central Cougars will take into Friday’s Class 3-A, Region 2 semi-final when they travel to northern Kentucky to take on Covington Catholic, the top-ranked team in the state in many polls no matter the classification and that includes Trinity and St. Xavier.

  • Top-ranked Cov. Catholic too much for BE

     COVINGTON -- On a cold, breezy November night, the Bullitt East Chargers learned a valuable lesson.

    No matter the effort, it is hard when a team has been riddled with injuries to go onto an opponent’s field and come out the victor.

    And, when that opponent is the top ranked team in at least one poll, that task borders on the impossible.

    Covington Catholic displayed why many think the Colonels is the best team in Kentucky with a 56-14 victory.

    This came in the first round of the Class 5A post-season tournament.

  • Big pass plays lift Cougars past Colonels

     BARDSTOWN – Scoring three times in the third quarter, the Bullitt Central Cougars rallied from a 14-0 halftime hole on Friday and defeated Dixie Heights 18-14 in the first round of the Class 5-A, Region 2 football play-offs.

    The win marks the third time in the last four seasons that Bullitt Central has won its opening round contest in the post-season.

  • Central has memorable day at regional CC

     LOUISVILLE – For the first time in school history, Bullitt Central qualified both its boys’ and girls’ teams for the Kentucky State Cross-Country Championships this Saturday at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington.

    Bullitt Central boys’ coach Martin Tallent, who has been part of the boys’ or girls’ program for 11 years, said that the boys’ team had not reached the state meet as a group since 1986.

  • BC’s ‘home’ game moved to Nelson Co.

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – A perfect storm of bad weather is forcing Bullitt Central to play its ‘home’ play-off game on Friday in the opening round of the Class 5-A tourney against Dixie Heights at Nelson County High School.

  • East has tall task on the road

     MOUNT WASHINGTON  – Bullitt East head coach Mark Sander is not going to hide anything from his players.

    He’s not going to sugarcoat the task at hand this Friday night.

    But he’s not going into the first round Class 5A Russell Athletic/KHSAA Commonwealth Gridiron Bowl thinking that his Chargers will lose.

    The task at hand is facing the top ranked team in the Litkenhous ratings. That is number one for all six classes.

    “Anything can happen,” said Sander. 

  • Cougars open at ‘home’ against Dixie Heights

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – It will be run, run, run and maybe a pass or two when Bullitt Central tangles with Dixie Heights in the opening round of the Class 5-A, Region 3 Tournament in a game that will be played on Friday at Nelson County High School starting at 7:30 p.m.

    Over the past two weeks, Bullitt Central has completed one pass. Over its first eight games, the Colonels completed less than three passes a contest.

  • BC at home; East on the road Friday

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- With no real surprises on Friday night, the tie-breaking system for the three-way tie in Class 5-A, District 3 did not change, favoring Bullitt Central as the Cougars nabbed the number two spot and will be staying at home in the first-round of the play-offs.

    With Bullitt Central, Bullitt East and Oldham County all finishing with 3-2 records in the district, the KHSAA tie-breaking procedure has the teams adding together the wins of any four team that they have beaten not in the tie.
