  • Press pressure lifts Lady Eagles to tourney title

     CAMPBELLSVILLE  -- North Bullitt head coach David Marion is not a jockey.

    However, it appeared that as his Lady Eagles were down by 10 strides…points … with four minutes to go, Marion told his players to “go.”

    Down the back stretch, North Bullitt outscored previously undefeated Casey County 18-5 to win the Food Pantry Holiday Classic at Campbellsville High School.

    Marion was proud of his team’s 60-57 win against a very solid Casey County squad.

  • Lady Cougars set for a break

  • BE’s Murphy signs for golf at Campbellsville

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Often when it comes to the smaller sports and college signings, athletes will work through the head coach.

    But for Bullitt East senior Mark Murphy, knowing Campbellsville assistant coach Casey Young for the past several years paid big dividends when it came time to make contact with a college. It didn’t take very long for Young to sell head coach Jim Ward on the need to ink Murphy.

    It also didn’t hurt that Bullitt East golf coach has known Young since both played and completed in college against each other.
