  • Wilson’s hot hand carries Chargers early

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – After a tough opening game at home against Warren Central, the Bullitt East Chargers got to flex their expansive muscles over the weekend as they picked up a pair of double-digit wins.

    On Friday, the Chargers had no trouble pulling away from visiting Martha Layne Collins. The red and gold were only up 44-33 at halftime, but then held the Titans to just 15 points in the second half en route to an 85-48 win.

  • Bombs away during 3-0 start for North

     HEBRON ESTATES – In perhaps the most impressive regular season win for North Bullitt in several years, the green and gold went to Jefferson County on Saturday and rolled past DeSales 83-37.

    The Colts are coming off a season in which they reached the championship game of the Sixth Region Tournament before losing to Doss. While the team did suffer some heavy graduation losses, they had opened the season a night earlier with a win over Holy Cross.

    North Bullitt also beat Nelson County on Friday 83-53.

  • NB’s Dolan selects to attend Spalding

     On Monday, North Bullitt Lady Eagle head coach Dave Marion announced that senior guard Erin Dolan had committed to play basketball at Spalding University.

    Dolan will be part of a steady stream of Bullitt County players who have played at Spalding University for head coach Charlie Just. Dolan will join former North Bullitt standout Maria George, who is presently a member of the Lady Golden Eagles.

  • Chargers rally for big win

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – Trailing 63-57 entering the fourth quarter of the opening game of the season, the Bullitt East Chargers rallied on Tuesday to beat visiting Warren Central 86-81.

    Bullitt East pulled ahead late and the lead was only one point at 82-81 with 14 seconds to play before the Chargers secured the win late at the foul line.

    The Chargers had a 37-36 lead at halftime.

  • North has more than enough for Wildcats

      HEBRON ESTATES -- While any coach will find fault in his team’s performance, North Bullitt’s Korey Craddock had plenty of reasons to smile Tuesday evening.

    His Eagles got off to a flying start with a 78-54 victory over former Eighth Region foe Henry County.

    The homesteading Eagles would not trail after the 2:00 mark of the first quarter and placed four scorers in double digits.

  • Lady Eagles look impressive in two early wins

     HEBRON ESTATES – The North Bullitt Lady Eagles got just what they wanted from the first two games of the regular season as coach Dave Marion’s team got the best of both Assumption and Oldham County in a three-day span to open the 2015-16 campaign.

    On Tuesday, the green and gold got the best of Assumption, beating the Rockets 58-45 after pulling away from a 35-33 lead late in the third quarter.

  • Lady Cougars struggle in opener

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The first night of the regular season against Trimble County didn’t go so well for the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars, but the team bounced back two nights later and picked up win number one as they trounced Jeffersontown.

    On Tuesday, playing at home, the Lady Cougars just did not shoot the ball well. In fact, the team didn’t do very much right over the first three quarters before rallying from being ten points down with seven minutes to play to pull even at 34-34 with a minute to play.

  • Cougars have a strong opening (McK)night

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The opposition wasn’t very good, but the Bullitt Central Cougars still put on an impressive opening night win on Tuesday as the maroon and gray routed visiting Trimble County 65-33 in a game that wasn’t even as close as the final score would indicate.

  • This could well be a special hoops season

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – It could be a great winter to be a high school basketball fan in Bullitt County.

    Despite the loss of Bullitt East standout Lindsey Duvall to injury, this could be another outstanding season overall. It is not out of the realm of possibility for all six Bullitt County teams to post winning records as well as all six reaching their respective Sixth Region Tournaments when March rolls around.

  • Chargers ready for successful season

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Ready, willing, experienced and favored.

    For the first time since Derek Willis, Rusty Troutman and Trey Rakes were walking the hallways at Bullitt East, the Chargers are the team to beat this winter in the always-tough Sixth Region.

    Coach Bob Blackburn’s team has already been ranked as high as eighth in the state in pre-season polls and they have been the regional favorite since the end of last season after losing 65-61 to eventual champion Doss in the regional semi-finals at Valley.
