  • Downey makes it official, signs...

     HEBRON ESTATES – Despite offers from a pair of Division I programs, North Bullitt senior Katie Downey took the offer from Bellarmine University, singing with the Lady Knights last week during the NCAA early signing period for basketball.

    Downey had committed to Bellarmine back during the summer.

    Over the past year, the high-scoring guard had a scholarship offer from Eastern Kentucky University as well as an offer from national power Louisville to be a walk-on.

     BERNHEIM –It’s never easy to beat a good team three times.

    It’s just about impossible beat a good team three times when during the third meeting the team connects on 11 three-pointers.

     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.
