    He’s pitched and won in a state baseball game.

    And, now, he’s calmly hit one of the biggest shots in his high school basketball career.

    Most surprising, Ryan Henson showed an unusual side -- his emotions.

    With the team struggling for the first three quarters, Henson’s three-pointer at the buzzer allowed his North Bullitt Eagles to keep alive its hopes of being the top seed in the 23rd District tournament.

  • Sander named to head Bullitt...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – After meeting some members and parents on Saturday night, new Bullitt East football coach Mark Sander admitted to being nervous.

    That might seem a little odd of a man who has coached for 12 previous seasons, as well as playing in major college bowl games and as well as on Sunday afternoons for three seasons in the National Football League with the Miami Dolphins.

    As Sander noted, getting back into coaching after two years on the sidelines has changed the concept a little.

  • North sweeps pair from Central...

     HEBRON ESTATES – It wasn’t exactly ‘by the book’, but North Bullitt basketball coach Korey Craddock will be the first to tell you that he has never seen ‘the book’.

    In a tight battle with arch-rival Bullitt Central on Tuesday, the Eagles were on their heels a little bit after the Cougars went on an 8-2 surge fueled by a pair of three-pointers from freshman Mason Shifflett. The second bomb pulled the maroon and gray within 51-43 with three minute to play.

  • BE girls’ team, BC’s Taylor...

      LOUISVILLE – For the second year on a row, the Bullitt East Lady Charger bowling team qualified for the Kentucky State Tournament that will be held this week at Collins Eastland Lanes in Lexington.

     At last year’s state tournament, the Lady Chargers fell in the quarter-finals to Simon Kenton.
