  • No Peak, no valley for East in...

     LOUISVILLE – The incredible shrinking basketball team picked up another win on Tuesday as the Bullitt East Lady Chargers rolled past Pleasure Ridge Park 58-41 in the opening round of the Republic Bank/Coca-Cola Girls’ Louisville Invitational Tournament at Bellarmine University.

  • Hot outside shooting lifts BE to...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Some times things just fall perfectly into place.

    That was the situation for Bullitt East and Meade County last week as they got to play on Tuesday, albeit, four days later than previously planned.

    Even before the big winter storm hit, the two schools had been in contact and discovered that if they couldn’t play on Friday, which they couldn’t with almost a foot of snow, that both teams had the following Tuesday open. Even before the snow started piling up, the decision was made to move the game back four days.

  • Poor shooting costs East chance...

     LOUISVILLE – An offensive power outage in the second half kept Bullitt East from making any kind of run at the Male Lady Bulldogs on Wednesday in the second round of the Republic Bank/Coca-Cola Louisville Invitational Tournament at Bellarmine University.

    Scoring just four baskets after halftime, Bullitt East dropped a 65-42 decision to the state’s fourth-ranked team.

  • Stat sheet yes; final score no...

     LOUISVILLE – The stat sheet looked just fine, but the final score trumped that for the North Bullitt Lady Eagles on Tuesday as the green and gold dropped a 68-60 decision to Christian Academy in the opening game of the Republic Bank/Coca-Cola Girls’ Louisville Invitational Tournament at Bellarmine University.

  • BE’s McKinley headed to Brescia...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Getting the chance to get in on the ground floor of something special was just the right sales pitch for Bullitt East pitcher Kyle McKinley when he sat down with Brescia head coach Andrew Dickson.

    A first-year head coach who is returning to the school where he played his final two seasons of college baseball, Dickson sold McKinley on the chance to help turnaround a program that fell to an 18-35 mark last season.

    McKinley made it all official recently when he signed with the NAIA school in Owensboro.

  • Bullitt Countian Myers to play...

      BARDSTOWN -- When Megan Myers joined the Bethlehem softball squad as a sophomore, she brought a gritty toughness and versatility to the team that helped push the Banshees over the edge and to the top of the district heap.

    Myers has anchored the Banshees’ defense at shortstop since her arrival, and as the team’s top hitter and fastest player, she’s a terror for opposing teams as a tablesetter for the Bethlehem offense.

  • NB’s Downey surpasses 2,000...

     Before a home game last week with Southern, North Bullitt senior Katie Downey was honored for scoring 2,000 career points by head coach David Marion.

    Downey, who has signed with Bellarmine University, has been a part of the Lady Eagle program since she was in the sixth grade.

  • Bullitt County Player of the Year

     Bullitt Central senior Cameron Dukes was recently named the Bullitt County Player of the Year by Schmid Funeral Home, The Award Center and The Pioneer News.

    Bullitt Central principal James Beavers was at the award presentation along with Tim Gonterman and Mark Schmid of Schmid Funeral Home.

  • Month remains in basketball...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – With just a month remaining in the regular season, basketball is looking ahead to the post-season both on and off the court.

    On the court, the only really important game left is next Friday’s boys’ contest at North Bullitt when 23rd District rival Moore visits. North Bullitt can wrap up the number one seed with a win. If the Eagles beat Moore, then it won’t matter the outcome of the Feb. 10 game at Evangel, the final district game of the regular season.

  • Sweet Mercy! Lady Chargers beat...

     LOUISVILLE – Left in a state of flux at the start of the season after losing junior Lindsey Duvall to a knee injury, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers reasserted themselves into the race for the top spot in both the 24th District and the Sixth Region on Tuesday after beating defending champion Mercy 50-45 on the Jaguars’ home court.
