  • Chargers have just enough Bacon to beat the Crimsons

    VALLEY STATION -- Surrounded by reporters and cameras, Tyler Bacon was all smiles on Friday evening.

        And so was his coach, Bob Blackburn.

        The veteran coach likes when his 6-foot-9 center plays like a 6-foot-9 post man.

  • Doss ends Chargers' dreams in LIT semis

    VALLEY STATION -- To win basketball games, you must execute.

        When you don't execute the entire four quarters, you might be able to beat some teams.

        But you won't beat a team favored to win the Sixth Region.

        On Saturday morning, Bullitt East only executed for two-and-a-half quarters.

  • Lady Eagles cap 3-0 week with win

     HEBRON ESTATES – Despite scoring just one basket in the two middle quarters, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles played defense well enough on Friday to stay one step ahead of Bullitt Central to the tune of a 43-31 victory.

    In the 23rd District, where these two teams are better than the other three teams by double-digit margins, this was the defacto battle for the top seed in the post-season tournament which will be held at Bullitt Central in late February. North Bullitt is now 2-0 in the district seeding battle while Bullitt Central fell to 1-1.

  • NB has a little more offense than BC

     HEBRON ESTATES – After the two arch-rivals stumbled through a 46-31 win in the first meeting of the season, the rematch on Friday between North Bullitt and Bullitt Central had nowhere to go but up.

    And up it went.

    In a much more scintillating contest, a near capacity crowd at North Bullitt watched the two rivals battle it out in hand-to-hand combat before the Eagles pulled away late for a 71-60 win.

  • East wins pair over weekend

     MOUNT WASHINGTON -- The Bullitt East Chargers and Lady Chargers both picked up key wins over the weekend as they started the new year with a pair of wins.

    Chargers’ District Win

    First, on Friday, the Bullitt East Chargers played their second 24th District game of the week, turning back visiting Whitefield Academy 90-57.

    The win moved Bullitt East to 2-0 in the race for the top spot in the district standings.

  • Eagles come up short late against St. Xavier

     LOUISVILLE – A 9-0 run to end the first half put the North Bullitt Eagles behind the eight ball on Monday night in the opening round of the Boys’ Republic Bank Louisville Invitational Tournament and despite some spirited play down the stretch, the green and gold could not rally past St. Xavier, falling 54-49.

  • All three locals make Girls' LIT

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – Tuesday, Jan. 27 will be a special day for Bullitt County basketball as all three high school programs will compete on the same day for the first time in the Girls’ Republic Bank/Coca-Cola Louisville Invitational Tournament.

         While Bullitt East has a long history with the event, winning the title in 1996, this will be the first time that North Bullitt and Bullitt Central will participate. In fact, it is the first year that the Lady Eagles and Lady Cougars have made themselves eligible to compete in the 16-team event.

  • North sweeps pair of district games from Moore

    HEBRON ESTATES -- For Korey Craddock, the first half of his team's district opener against the Moore Mustangs could not have gone much better.

  • Cougars, Lady Eagles win other early week games

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – In the team’s first action back since taking a few days off for the holidays, the Bullitt Central Cougars reversed some of their earlier misfortune on Tuesday as they beat Meade County 85-75.

         Meade County made the trip to Shepherdsville with just one loss on the season, but the Cougars outscored them in each quarter to notch the team’s sixth win of the season.

  • Lady Chargers roll early

     FERN CREEK – The Bullitt East Lady Chargers didn’t waste any time on Tuesday getting the best of 24th District rival Fern Creek.

         In the first district game that will settle the seedings for the first-round of the post-season, Bullitt East jumped on top of the home team 16-2 in the first quarter and stretched that to 35-7 by halftime.

         With the first eight points of the second half, Bullitt East put the ‘running clock’ into action as they rolled easily to a 64-26 victory.
