High School Sports

  • 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.

  • BC wins Nelson County Invitational

     BARDSTOWN – It’s not often that a team can claim the championship trophy of a holiday tournament before the final night of action begins.

  • BE sweeps South Carolina

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East Lady Chargers rank among the top teams in Kentucky this season, but they might well be the best team in South Carolina.

  • 2013 - The Year in Review

     As coaches are often fond of saying - ‘it was a good year, but it was not a great year.’

    It wasn’t until December that there was a KHSAA State Championship when Bullitt Central brought home the Co-Ed Cheerleading title.

    That makes five straight ‘years’ in which Bullitt County athletes have brought home a state title.

    There were a few runner-up finishes at the State Track and Field championships including two by junior Meghan Roby.

  • St. Catharine nabs pair of softball players from NB

     HEBRON ESTATES – St. Catharine University softball coach Holly Smith killed two birds with one stone recently, when she signed North Bullitt softball standouts Elise Mills and Carly Benz on the same day.

    In fact, Smith and her assistant coaches have found the way to Bullitt County a number of times this year. A few weeks earlier, St. Catharine assistant coach Felicia Smith (the two coaches are not related) was in Mount Washington getting the signature of Bullitt East catcher Kelsey Gravens.

  • Vision First event at East highlights first holiday events

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – With the way the holidays fell this year, namely Christmas and New Year’s Day on a Wednesday, as well as the way the school breaks were lined-up, the traditional holiday basketball tournaments are a little more spread out this winter as there are basically three different times for the tournaments.

    In addition, because of the scheduling, two teams, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles and the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars, opted to participate in only one holiday tournament this season.

  • Lady Eagles topple Assumption

     HEBRON ESTATES – A little smoke wasn’t going to deter the North Bullitt Lady Eagles from the biggest regular season win in school history on Saturday as the green and gold stunned visiting Assumption 43-41 in the first game of the annual Bullitt County Challenge.

    In the three game Challenge, played at North Bullitt this season, the Lady Eagles picked up a win as did Bullitt East as they cruised past Grayson County 56-39. Keeping it from being a sweep for the local teams was Lexington Catholic’s lopsided victory over Bullitt Central.
