  • 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.

  • Foulfest won by Lady Eagles

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After scoring the final seven points of the first half to break open a one-point game, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles pulled away in the second half on Friday to beat Bullitt Central 78-55.

    The win was the second this season for the Lady Eagles over their county rivals. North Bullitt beat Bullitt Central 68-56 on Dec. 13.

  • George’s 22 points fuel Eagles

       SHEPHERDSVILLE – New year. New coach. New Outlook.

    The North Bullitt Eagles had a new-old look on Friday when they rolled into Shepherdsville to battle arch-rival Bullitt Central in a big game as far as district seeding goes for upcoming post-season play.

  • Eagles win one at LaRue Co. event

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After starting the season 1-5, the North Bullitt Eagles found some reason for some holiday cheer as they won three games in two tournaments to head into the new year with a better feeling about themselves.

    The second of the two tournaments started last Thursday at the National Guard Holiday Classic at LaRue County High school. This has often been a stop for the Eagles for a holiday tournament.

    The Eagles once again played well, but the team is still having trouble finishing in tight situations.

  • BC girls win a morning game

     FRANKFORT – An early morning wake-up call was no problem for the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars on Saturday as they traveled to Frankfort to play a single game in the Centira Metals/Staxx BBQ Shootout.

    Playing at 10 a.m. in the one day ‘showcase’ event at Franklin County High School, after leaving Shepherdsville at 7:30 a.m., the Lady Cougars found enough offense to turn back Garrard County 48-40. The opponent came into the game with a winning record.

  • Lady Eagles come up just short to Ballard

     ELIZABETHTOWN – It wasn’t a win and it snapped the team’s ten game winning streak by the North Bullitt Lady Eagles, but the green and gold put forth another solid effort on Friday in a 70-60 loss to Ballard in the second game of the Bluegrass Cellular New Years Classic at Central Hardin High School.

    The event, a one-day ‘showcase’ of games, sort of mistimed this game as it was played at 3 p.m. on a Friday afternoon. Ballard came into the game ranked fifth in the state while North Bullitt was riding that 10-game winning streak.

  • Bullitt East will now play Fern Creek Thursday

     SHEPERHDSVILLE - Cold weather over the first two days of this week was on everybody’s mind and that included local athletes as all the games scheduled for Monday and Tuesday were postponed.

    As of Tuesday afternoon, three of the games had been rescheduled.

    The biggest of those games was moved back just two days. Now, the 24th District showdown between Bullitt East and Fern Creek will be played on Thursday night in Mount Washington instead of the original Tuesday night.

  • Bullitt East Cheer success

     The goal is to once again bring  home a national cheerleading title.

    En route to that competition in February in Orlando, the Bullitt East small cheer squad won its regional competition and then finished fourth in the state KHSAA cheerleading competition recently in Lexington.

    Coach Nate Fulghum said the core group of girls are well-rounded in all areas of the routine and that allows the squad to have a high degree of difficulty.
