  • State tennis a good learning...

     LEXINGTON -- Three Bullitt Countians were part of the Republic Bank/KHSAA State Tennis Tournament on Thursday.

    In girls’ play, Bullitt East freshman Savannah Kruse defeated Nita Nair of Madisonville North Hopkins in the opening round.

    Kruse cruised through the match, winning 6-2, 6-0.

    In the next round, she ran into fifth-seeded Allison Quammen, a senior from Lexington Catholic.

    The senior jumped on top early and never allowed Kruse into the match.

    Quammen won 6-1, 6-0.

  • NB’s Sutherland signs with...

     HEBRON ESTATES – A phone call during a winter snowstorm will be shaping the future for North Bullitt Lady Eagle basketball player Krista Sutherland for at least the next few years.

    While sitting at home that day and unable to practice basketball, Sutherland got a phone call from Franklin College, an NCAA Division III program in Franklin, Indiana. Sutherland wasn’t really aware of the school and its basketball program but she was ready to talk.

  • BE’s Breeden headed to North...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – A chance meeting with a basketball coach from North Greenville University in January recently paid big dividends for Bullitt East senior Ethan Breeden.

    Breeden’s father, Mike, was sitting in the stands at the Boys’ Louisville Invitational Tournament when he struck up a conversation with an assistant coach from North Greenville as the coach was watching Charger hoops standout Tyler Sharpe. By the end of the talk, the assistant basketball coach was setting up a contact between the Breeden family and the school’s golf coach.

  • Curry moves from freshmen to...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – When he was 10 years old, Jessie Curry knew he wanted to be a head basketball coach someday. He just didn’t think it happen so soon.

    At the age of 26, Curry was hired on Friday to take over the reigns of the Bullitt Central Cougars, taking over for Joe Pat Lee who stepped down after 11 seasons at the helm.

  • Cravens back with Lady Cougars

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After four years away from the Bullitt Central program, Josh Cravens is returning, this time as the head coach, replacing Kyle Roach, who stepped down earlier this spring.

    In fact, it was the hiring of Roach that pushed Cravens away from the Lady Cougars. He had served as an assistant coach under previous coach Bryan Bates from 2006 to 2012 and had wanted the position that was eventually filled by Roach.

  • East’s defense struggles in loss...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East Lady Chargers hit the road over the weekend and for the first time this season, the road hit back.

    Playing in the Best of the West event at Buchanan Park in Bowling Green, the state’s fourth-ranked team dropped two of three games, including a 9-0 decision to Madisonville North Hopkins, a game in which the Lady Chargers made six errors and were never in the game.

  • NB adds two additional wins to...

      HEBRON ESTATES -- It’s all about fine tuning entering the final week of the regular season for the defending Sixth Region champs.

    While wins and losses aren’t as important right now, North Bullitt baseball coach Brian Wise wants to keep positive momentum going.

    With only two games last week, the Eagles got a big 6-0 victory over Collins.

  • BE wins two of three in own...

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – It didn’t rain, something that has happened often in the past and is sort of a running joke around the Bullitt East baseball program, so the Charger Challenge without a hitch on Friday and Saturday.

    The only negative for the event was that the host team lost in the final game, dropping a 2-0 decision to North Oldham. The Mustangs finished without a loss, winning all three games they played.

  • Central struggles after long lay...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After not playing for 11 days, the Bullitt Central Cougars returned to baseball action on Saturday and dropped a 14-1 decision to visiting Henry County.

    The Wildcats had been able to play the night before, but Bullitt Central had not seen live pitching or hitting in almost two weeks and it showed. Five Cougar pitchers walked 13 batters in the six-inning game.

  • BC All-Sports Physical Night

     The Bullitt Central Athletic Department will host an All Sports Physical Night on May 19.
