     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Despite not winning any of the 14 weight classes, the Bullitt East Chargers still managed to finish second overall in the 13-team Region Three Wrestling Tournament held on Saturday at Bullitt Central.

  • Lady Chargers keep NB at a safe...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – In a much-anticipated match-up between the third- and fourth-ranked teams in the Sixth Region this season, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers kept the North Bullitt Lady Eagles in the rear view mirror for the entire game in winning 73-67 on Friday.

    The game may have been more anticipated in the north end of the county as North Bullitt was trying to break a decade long losing streak to Bullitt East. The Lady Eagles have not beaten the Lady Chargers since Feb. 3, 2006 when they won 41-36 at home.

  • No jacket, no problem for BE’s...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – It wasn’t exactly a wardrobe malfunction but more an assist from a sports jacket that spurred Bullitt East to an 86-67 victory over arch-rival North Bullitt on Friday.

    As the Chargers left the floor at halftime, head coach Jason Couch angrily removed his jacket and out of sight of most fans but in full view of his team, threw it against the wall and then loudly directed his players into the locker room.

    At the time, Bullitt East was ahead 44-42, but Couch felt his team should have had a larger margin.

  • Chargers win two OT thriller...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON – For two teams that will meet again in two weeks in a more important match-up, the Bullitt East Chargers and the Jeffersontown Chargers went at it tooth and nail on Tuesday in the regular season meeting between the two 24th District rivals.

  • Lady Chargers have no trouble...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Following a weekend pair of games in which they could not make shots, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers got back in the saddle on Tuesday and shot 58 percent in beating visiting Jeffersontown 81-49.

    Bullitt East was coming off a 62-49 loss at Franklin County in which they shot 39 percent from the field and a horrific 28 percent shooting night as they lost at Eastern 71-45. That game against Eastern included a two of 21 mark from beyond the three-point line.

  • East wins fourth straight...

    All three local teams will compete in the Region Three tournament on Saturday at Bullitt Central starting at 9 a.m.

  • Hoops into the homestretch

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- It was far from the most challenging weekend of the season, but the North Bullitt Lady Eagles can only play the team on the opposite bench and they did that well in two games over the weekend.

    On Friday, coach David Marion’s team made the short trip to Fairdale and beat the Lady Bulldogs 77-25.

    The green and gold shot 57.6 percent for the game in rolling to the win. The team also made five three-pointers.

    The only negative was 40 percent shooting at the foul line.

  • Cougars get a tight win over...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Earlier in the week, Bullitt Central head coach Jessie Curry said he was looking for someone who could be a consistent shot maker.

    On Friday, the second-year coach may have found some playmakers.

    Trey Kearney and Chander Ocasio led a big fourth-quarter spurt to push the Cougars past Western Hills 56-53.

    Curry called Kearney the missing key to a successful post-season run.

    “Tonight, he showed what he could do,” said Curry.
