     BERNHEIM –Connecting on a trio of three-pointers over the final 90 seconds of the game, the Mount Washington Lady Generals’ seventh-grade team rallied to beat Eastside 38-35 in the Championship Game of the Girls’ Bullitt County Middle School Basketball Tournament on Thursday.

    The win reversed two regular season losses by Mount Washington to their arch-rivals.

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Bullitt East basketball standout Lindsey Duvall, who recently committed to the University of Kentucky, will miss her junior season this winter after having a tumor removed from just below her left knee.

    Duvall had surgery on Thursday in Louisville and went home that day. The bone tumor was diagnosed as chondroblastoma, a very rare form of cancer.

  • Fern Creek pulls away late to...

     FERN CREEK – North Bullitt’s turnaround, season-in-the-sun 2015 campaign came to an end on Friday as Fern Creek scored three times in the second half to beat the Eagles 28-7 in the second-round of the Class 5-A State Football Playoffs.

    The loss ended North Bullitt’s season at 9-3, an incredible reversal from the 1-10 mark the program posted in 2014.

    Against a very athletic Fern Creek team on Friday, the green and gold had opportunities early to seize momentum but an uneven offensive performance ultimately undid the Eagles.

  • NB’s Logan Wyatt signs with U of...

      HEBRON ESTATES – It was a dream come true for North Bullitt senior Logan Wyatt on Wednesday as he signed his national letter of intent to play baseball at the University of Louisville.

    A long-time Cardinal fan, the decision came easy back last summer when Louisville head coach Dan McDonnell presented the big third baseman with a scholarship proposal. Wyatt pretty much accepted on the spot.

  • Lady Chargers host Hooparama...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Fans can get an early look at some of the top players in the state this weekend as Bullitt East hosts its annual pre-season Hooparama.

    The event has 12 teams participating. The junior-varsity teams from each school will play for an hour in the new ‘small’ gym at the school while the varsity teams will scrimmage for two hours in the main gym.

    (The KHSAA allows schools two scrimmages before the season starts on Nov. 29 by each school with the workouts not to exceed three hours.)

  • NB vs. speedy force in second-...

      HEBRON ESTATES – It will be unchartered territory for the North Bullitt Eagles and their head coach on Friday as the green and gold play in the second round of the Kentucky high school football playoffs for the first time since 2011.

    The Eagles have a big hurdle to clear as they have to go on the road to face Class 5-A, District 4 winner Fern Creek, a team that defeated Bullitt Central 30-0 in its opening playoff contest.

    The Tigers are 10-1 overall and are ranked fourth in Class 5-A while North Bullitt is 9-2 and ranked eighth.

  • Charger Gold turns tables on Red...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- It was a neighborhood battle on Saturday.

    It was a game of teams with players who had been teammates in the past.

    And it was a game in which many will become teammates once again at Bullitt East.

    On this particular evening, the top seeded East Gold would defeat the East Red for the right to be called champions of the A Division in the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League.

    The 28-14 victory capped off an undefeated season for coach John Jutz’ team.

  • Vikings complete sweep en route...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Entering the playoffs as the fourth seed, the Cedar Grove Vikings had a little work to do.

    And work they did do as the Vikings advanced to the championship game of the Little Bullitts Division of the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League.

    The last hurdle would be the second-seeded Mount Washington Colts.

    At the end of the day, it would be mission accomplished for coach Pat Bristoe and his Vikings.

    Cedar Grove took home the championship trophy with a 20-12 victory.

  • Big plays, tough defense carries...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Good defense wins championships.

    The Pleasant Grove Dolphins proved that on Saturday and they took home the championship for the Pee Wee division of the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League.

    Two big plays and a suffocating defense led the Dolphins to the 12-0 victory over the Maryville Patriots.

    Quarterback Carson Waddle took the ball on the opening Dolphin drive and would score on its third play.

    He ran 48 yards for the touchdown with 4:01 left in the opening period.
