  • 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.

  • Depth plays big role in two key...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Depth is a great luxury to have for any high school basketball and Bullitt East head coach Bob Blackburn has praised his team’s numbers numerous times this season.

  • BC’s Dukes signs football letter...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – If nothing else, Bullitt Central senior Cameron Dukes had a lot of options when it came to where he would attend college.

     First, Dukes had the option of multiple sports from which to get offers from schools. Then, he had a great deal of talent attract offers once schools knew which sport he wanted to pursue.

  • 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.

     In each of the last two seasons, Bullitt East has reached the final of the Region Three Tournament at Ken Bowl Lanes, but finished second.

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

  • Both East teams finalize top...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – It was pretty much the basketball equivalent of dotting the ‘I’s and crossing the ‘T’s on Tuesday for the Bullitt East basketball teams as they took on Jeffersontown in the final 24th District games of the regular season.

    With two relatively easy wins, the Charger teams both wrapped up the number one seeds for the upcoming district tournament that will start on Feb. 22 at Christian Academy (hosted by Whitefield Academy) in Louisville. The two Bullitt East teams will not take the court until Feb. 23.

     

  • Duvall returns to action

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Christmas came a little late for the Bullitt East Lady Chargers and standout guard Lindsey Duvall on Thursday when the junior was cleared to return to practice and games after being out since mid-November following knee surgery for a cancerous growth.

  • Region 3 Bowling Tournament

     LOUISVILLE -- There was no shortage of action last week at the Region 3 Bowling Tournament at Ken Bowl Lanes.

    On Thursday, the boys’ team competition was held, but it was a tough day for the three Bullitt County teams as none moved past the quarter-finals.

    It was a bigger day on Tuesday as the Bullitt East Lady Chargers upset defending champion Pleasure Ridge Park in the semi-finals before falling to Mercy in the final. That earned the team a spot in next week’s Kentucky State Tournament in Lexington.

  • BC turns around sour season with...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Just when it looked like the Bullitt Central Cougars were toast, the maroon and gray turned the season around over a seven-day span, winning three of four games and gaining momentum and excitement for a late run into the post-season.

    Even the one loss, a 76-75 overtime setback to DeSales in the King of the Bluegrass Showcase on Saturday, had a number of positive points. The Cougars played without senior Chase Craddock, who was off on a football recruiting trip.

  • Eagles win three, drop one...

     HEBRON ESTATES – While the girls in the area were taking up most of the attention last week with the Louisville Invitational Tournament, the North Bullitt boys stepped outside of Jefferson County for four games in an eight-day span.

    First, it was back-to-back games against a pair of Oldham County teams. The Eagles actually beat the better of the two teams on the road as they rallied late to beat South Oldham 59-54 last Monday. A night later, at home, the Eagles came out on the short end of a 70-61 decision to North Oldham.
