  • Snow made for a light week

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – There is no beating Mother Nature and you can’t schedule around winter weather.

    Area teams are once again learning that ages old lesson as more games have been postponed or cancelled over the last ten days than have been played. It didn’t look any better during the early part of this week either.

  • East football moving to 6-A...

     The discussions for reclassification of football in the state by the Kentucky High School Athletic Association are just getting started. The first step was to rank the schools by the average number of male students over the past four school years. After that, the schools were broken down into groupings with the top 32 schools set for Class 6-A and the next 39 schools for Class 5-A and then further down through the classes.

  • Thornsberry steps down at Nelson...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After two years at Nelson County High School as the head football coach, former Bullitt East player and assistant coach Kenny Thornsberry recently stepped down from that position.

    It was a pair of very tough years for Thornsberry and the Cardinal program as they lost 19 straight games before winning the final game of this season, beating Marion County 26-6. The program struggled with low participation numbers in both of Thornsberry’s seasons.

  • Frustrating late call knocks out...

     VALLEY STATION – Putting forth a superlative effort against the state’s top-ranked team, Bullitt East had a shot at the upset of Fern Creek on Wednesday in the quarter-finals of the Republic Bank Boys’ Louisville Invitational Tournament before a phantom walking call with 1.8 seconds remaining in the game kept the Chargers from getting a chance at forcing an overtime in a 52-50 contest.

    In a game that had 11 lead changes and seven ties and in which neither team ever led by more than five points, the finish was anti-climatic for both teams.

  • Down 18, BE rallies late to beat...

     VALLEY STATION – Trailing 47-29 two minutes into the second half in the final opening round game of the Republic Bank Boys’ Louisville Invitational Tournament, the Bullitt East Chargers rallied on Tuesday to beat Pleasure Ridge Park 66-64.

    The win moved the Chargers into the quarter-finals on Wednesday where they were set to play Fern Creek, the top-ranked team in Kentucky this season.

  • ‘Mercy Week’ for East

     MOUNT WASHINGTON -- It is the annual ‘Mercy Week’ for the Bullitt East Lady Chargers as they will play the Jaguars on Tuesday before returning to the school on Friday and Saturday to participate once again in the Raatz Fence/O’Shea’s Classic.

    This is the sixth straight season that Bullitt East has taken on their district rivals and played in the area’s top ‘showcase’ event in the same week.

  • Lady Eagles have no trouble with...

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – There were no surprises on Friday as the North Bullitt Lady Eagles rolled to a 63-21 victory over Bullitt Central in a contest that was as lopsided as the final score would indicate.

    North Bullitt rolled big despite the fact that senior guard Hailey Free, who has signed with Pikeville, missed the game after suffering a sprained ankle two nights earlier in a win over Fern Creek. Lady Eagle head coach David Marion was expecting Free to take the court again over the weekend in a game against South Laurel.

  • Big third quarter lifts North...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – A two-point lead for North Bullitt at halftime expanded to double-digits early in the second half and the Eagles went onto beat arch-rival Bullitt Central 62-51 on Friday in the first of the two meetings between the teams this winter.

    North Bullitt opened the third quarter with an 11-3 surge that moved to 15-5 late in the third frame. The Eagles were up 42-31 entering the fourth quarter and Bullitt Central could get no closer than six points (44-38) the rest of the way.

  • HIGH SCHOOL HOOPS

      The high school hoops season is underway. Throughout the season, we will send out email blasts to update you on games throughout the week.

  • The year of the twin in hoops

      SHEPHERSVILLE – Nobody loves the fact that basketball players have numbers on their uniforms more than me.

    While that goes for every season, it is doubly a good thing this season, the winter of the twins.

    There are no fewer than four pairs of twins in Bullitt County basketball this season and three sets of twins are playing key roles for their teams.
