  • Eastside 8th-grader wins Ohio...

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – Jumping right into the family business paid off handsomely this season for Eastside Middle School 8th-grader Cole Knieriem as he won the points title in the Junior Dragster category at Ohio Valley Dragway.

    Racing since he was eight-years old, Knieriem just won his first championship at the age of 13, a relatively young age to win a title in a division that includes drivers up to 17 years of age.

    The family had a great season as older sister Shelby, a sophomore at Bullitt East, finished fifth in the same division.

  • Cheerleading is all the rage in...

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – Rivalries are great things.

    More than anything, they set a bar for others to emulate. Sometimes one rival raises another. Other times two rivals push each other to the top.

    Make no mistake about it, Bullitt Central and Bullitt East are rivals when it comes to cheerleading. But the two programs have done it the right way. They don’t fight and scrap. Instead, they support each other.

  • Lady Cougars grab elusive first...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- In high school basketball there are no ugly wins and no beautiful losses. The final score decides a winner and loser.

    Through the first three weeks of the 2017-18 season, the final scores have not been kind for the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars. The team had lost it’s first five games with each of the defeats coming by at least double-digit margins.

  • BE’s Queen of the Commonwealth...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – With four of the top 17 teams in the pre-season coaches’ poll in the field, including defending state champion and top-ranked Mercer County, the Queen of the Commonwealth Tournament this week at Bullitt East will be one of the top girls’ events in the state this season.

    The new kid on the block, the Queen of the Commonwealth event has 16 teams with each of the teams playing four games. This is the second year for the event with Male having captured the first event last year, beating Bullitt East in the championship game.

  • North Bullitt wins 6th Region...

     For a second year in a row, the North Bullitt cheerleaders captured the Sixth Region title at Valley High School. The squad competed in the All-Girls Medium division.

    At the state competition at the Kentucky Horse Park, North Bullitt placed fourth out of 15 squads.

  • BE gets strong outing at home to...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON -- The Bullitt East offense went into high gear on Tuesday as the Chargers exploded for a season-high 85 points as they cruised past visiting Taylor County 85-67.

    This was only the second home game of the season for Bullitt East. Unftortunately, the red and gold are not set to play at home again until Jan. 25 when they take on Pleasure Ridge Park.

    Bullitt East came out shooting the ball well as they scored 23 points in the first eight minutes to take a 12 point advantage. The lead was still in double-digits at 39-28 at halftime.

  • BC shows they can compete in...

      OKOLONA – Neither team got a win on Tuesday at Moore, but both of the Bullitt Central varsity teams showed that they can be competitive this winter against their rivals in the 23rd District.

    Playing the first of three district games this season, the Bullitt Central boys were within three points with less than two minutes to play before a couple of bad passes led to Moore lay-ups and the Mustangs stretched the final score to 64-55.

  • Different foes, but frustrating...

     HEBRON ESTATES – In a somewhat unusual scheduling move, the two North Bullitt varsity teams played different foes on Tuesday in back-to-back contests.

    The move came about when Boyle County had to cancel a girls’ game at North Bullitt last season during a flu outbreak. The only date available this year happened to be on Tuesday, when the boys were already scheduled to play Iroquois.

    So, the boys’ played at 6:30 on Tuesday with the girls’ game following at 8 p.m.

  • BC does it right -- twice -- to...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Bullitt Central cheerleading coach James Moore was quite confident the night before that his team could win the Co-Ed ‘A’ Division Championship at the KHSAA Kentucky State Cheerleading Championships the next day.

    He just didn’t know that the team would have to do it twice.

    In the end, the Cougar squad got it done both times, winning the state championship for a sixth time and the second since the KHSAA took over the sport in 2013.

  • Chargers remain the team to beat...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON—The Bullitt East Cheerleaders aimed to charge up the crowds this year and produced a fourth straight win in the All-Girls Super Division of the KHSAA State Competition this month.

    A team with only three seniors, the younger team proved age is just a number by their overwhelming determination to be successful, coach Jeff Schaber said.

    “Even though there are 30 girls on the team, they all hold each other accountable which makes practices that much more beneficial,” he said.
