  • Bullitt Central wins district...

        OKOLONA -- For the past three years, the finals of the 23rd District volleyball tournament matched North Bullitt and Bullitt Central.
        In each of those three years, the Lady Eagles went into the Sixth Region tournament as the district champs.
        But, this year was different.
        The Bullitt Central Lady Cougars powered through a three-set victory over North Bullitt, 25-20, 25-23, 25-16.
        But the championship trophy may have actually been won on Oct. 3.

  • So close yet so far as BE falls...

        LOUISVILLE -- Each year, Bullitt East coach Steve Gentry feels his program gets a little bit closer to matching the Mercy Jaguars.
        On Friday, the final of the Sixth Region soccer tournament couldn’t be decided in regularion. And it couldn’t be decided in two five-minute extra periods.
        So, it came down to a five-player shootout and the host Mercy team won its fifth consecutive finale against the Lady Chargers.

  • NB loses 1-0 semifinal; BE beats...

        LOUISVILLE -- For the fifth straight year, it will be a Bullitt East-Mercy final for the Sixth Region girls’ soccer title.
        But, this year, the route each team had to follow was a bit different.
        Bullitt East played Butler in the semifinal on Wednesday. Normally, it is the Lady Chargers against the North Bullitt Lady Eagles.
        And, this year, the Lady Eagles had to face Mercy on its home field.

  • Bullitt East derailed by Mercy...

        LOUISVILLE -- The Sixth Region goes through Mercy.
        And, that means that the 24th District must also go through the Jaguars.
        For first-year coach Ricky Hoffman, his Bullitt East Lady Chargers could not look past its first round opponent on Monday night.
        The host Jeffersontown squad boasted a 19-12 record on the season.
        In their regular season matchup, Bullitt East won a 3-1 match against the Lady Chargers.

  • East has to win; NB, BC could...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Despite pulling off the remarkable 44-43 win over North Bullitt on Friday, the Bullitt East Chargers need to do it again this week against district rival Oldham County if they want the season to continue in two weeks in the Class 5-A play-offs.

    Bullitt East will have to do it on a short week of practice; because it is Fall Break week in Oldham County, the game has been shifted to Thursday night starting at 7:30 p.m.

     HIGHVIEW – Bullitt East scored first on Thursday in the Boys’ 24th District Soccer Final, but Fern Creek answered less than a minute later and the Tigers went on to claim a 3-1 win.

  • NB still Queens of 23rd District

     OKOLONA – The North Bullitt Lady Eagles continued their reign in the 23rd District on Tuesday as coach Amber Mink’s team won for a fifth straight year, this time by a 10-0 score over Moore.

    While this was old hat for North Bullitt, playing in the district final was a brand new occurrence for Moore. The Lady Mustangs benefited from Bullitt Central pulling out of post-season play and reached the final by beating Southern 4-0 a day earlier in the first-round contest.
