  • Lady Chargers open action in LIT Wednesday night

     LOUISVILLE – The Bullitt East Lady Chargers will open play tonight in the Girls’ Louisville Invitational Tournament at Bellarmine University’s Knights Hall.

    Bullitt East has a two-game losing streak heading into this event, but has the number-four seed amongst the 12 Louisville area teams that are participating. Because of the high seed, Bullitt East did not play on Tuesday during the first four games of the event.

  • North could be looking at two number two seeds

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – If the weather holds this week, and I know that is a huge ‘IF’ the way cold and snow have affected the area over the past month, but if the weather holds, this could be one of the biggest basketball weeks ever for the North Bullitt Eagles.

         By extension, if the Eagles have a big week this week, it could set the stage for a monumental occurrence for Bullitt County basketball as a whole.

         But first, let us stick to this week and North Bullitt.

  • Catcher Haley Dukes signs to play with John A. Logan

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Never underestimate the importance of a friend when it comes to making a college decision.

    That is exactly what Bullitt Central senior softball player Haley Dukes did recently when she decided to play softball the next two seasons at John A. Logan, a junior college in Carterville, Ill.

    Last week, Dukes made it all official in a ceremony at Bullitt Central that included her family, coaches and teammates.

  • Pitcher Hailey Szpila signs to play at Campbellsville

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Before all is said and done at the end of the high school softball season, Bullitt Central senior Hailey Szpila may have played more games than any other player in program history.

    Even with all of that, the senior is already looking ahead to college as she has decided to continue her career at Campbellsville University. Szpila actually made her decision five months ago, but she didn’t sign all the paperwork until holding a ceremony at Bullitt Central recently.

  • UPDATE: Hoops rescheduled due to weather, school closings

     The severe winter weather conditions and school closings continue to wreak havoc on the local high school basketball schedules.

  • Winter weather continues to get best of hoops

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Snow and cold keep getting in the way of the 2013-2014 high school basketball season.

    While the Bullitt East Chargers did get to play in the Louisville Invitational Tournament on Friday and the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars made it to Seneca, those were the only game that local teams got to play on that day.

  • After LIT, Sixth Region is back where it started

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The boys’ high school basketball season is now in the homestretch after the Louisville Invitational Tournament finished up on Saturday with Pleasure Ridge Park defeating Ballard in overtime to claim the title.

    At the start of the season, PRP was the obvious top pick to claim a second straight Sixth Region title. In the pre-season the coaches picked Doss as the number two team in the region with a number of teams in that next pack of squads, including Bullitt East.

  • Courtney back as NB coach after Briggs is terminated

     HEBRON ESTATES - Brian Courtney did not expect to see himself sitting on the sidelines coaching the North Bullitt Eagle basketball team this season.

    At least not after his promotion to assistant principal this fall.

    But Courtney has indeed returned to the bench to complete the rest of the season for the Eagles.

    On Jan. 6, 2014, Dick Briggs was terminated from his position as head basketball coach for North Bullitt.

  • Lady Chargers maul Manual

     SHIVELY - Coaches don’t often smile about their team’s performance -- especially in the middle of the season.

    But, if one caught a glimpse of Chris Stallings on Saturday night, you might have seen a smile, ever so slight and ever so brief.

    And, if he did smile, the veteran coach of the Bullitt East Lady Chargers deserved it.

    The Lady Chargers went to the Allgood Hoops Run-N-Shoot Classic at Pleasure Ridge Park and did just that.

  • Chargers open play in LIT Wednesday

     LOUISVILLE – Bullitt East, the top-seeded team in the event despite not being ranked among the top 20 teams in Kentucky, will enter play tonight on the third-day of the Boys’ Louisville Invitational Tournament.

    The Chargers will take on another group of Chargers, when they take the court at Valley High School at 3:30 p.m. to battle Jeffersontown. The Jefferson County Chargers moved into the Wednesday game with an easy 66-51 victory over Male in Monday night’s opening round of games in the 20-team event.
