  • Cougars and Chargers back to...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After a few bumps in the road, the Bullitt Central Cougars and the Bullitt East Chargers got back to their winning ways late last week as each team won a pair of games.

    The two programs are gearing up for a meeting next Tuesday in Shepherdsville that will part of a girl/boy doubleheader, the only meeting in the regular season between the two teams this season.

    On Thursday, coach Joe Pat Lee’s team had no trouble on the road as they cruised past St. Francis 69-36.

  • Poor shooting again haunts Lady...

     LOUISVILLE - While the weather was warming up outside, the shooting percentage for the Bullitt East Lady Chargers was sub-freezing on Friday.

    In the quarterfinal of the Republic Bank/Coca Cola Louisville Invitational at Bellarmine University, Bullitt East fell to the Franklin County Flyers 53-42.

    While disappointed, Bullitt East veteran coach Chris Stallings was not ready to give up on his young team after falling to the seventh-ranked team in the state.

  • North Bullitt in rarified air...

     HEBRON ESTATES - It’s as simple as climbing a ladder.

    The problem is that sometimes you may be inclined to go down a step or two along your journey.

    For the North Bullitt Eagles, all the steps have been positive ones the past month.

    On Thursday, with a loud, fun-loving crowd in the stands, the Eagles continued to move up the ladder. And they also secured the top seed in the district tournament later this month.

  • Lady Eagles roll again

     HEBRON ESTATES - There weren’t any Cyndi Lauper look-a-likes in the crowd Thursday evening but North Bullitt coach Amber Courtney didn’t mind if her girls were having a little fun.

    As the boys’ played the first game, members of the Lady Eagles were in the stands, dressed in their best beach attire and hitting beach balls with other students.

    But when it was time to get serious, there was no play. It was all business as North Bullitt wrapped up the top seed in the district tournament with a 70-31 thrashing of the Southern Lady Trojans.

  • 7th-grade Eagles force OT before...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Two free throws by Eastside’s Michael Page at :05.8 sent the game into overtime and then the Eagles scored the final six points in the extra period to beat Hebron 43-39 on Thursday in the championship game of the 7th-grade division of the Bullitt County Boys’ Middle School Basketball Tournament.

  • Eagles land on Beach

     It was a fun time on Thursday night as the North Bullitt Eagles hosted Southern in a basketball doubleheader.

    Wanting to get a big crowd, students were encouraged to dress up for their day on the beach.

    Free admission and free food added to the enticement.

    There were plenty of interesting sights during the game, which featured a pair of victories for North Bullitt.

  • Cougars get big win; Chargers in...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After starting the season 9-2, the Bullitt Central Cougars hit a few bumps in the road during January, but they got a big win on Tuesday as they traveled into Jefferson County and beat Shawnee 57-52.

         The Cougars are now 3-3 since that fast start and so are 12-4 heading into a busy weekend that had them playing on both Thursday and Friday.

  • 'Small' works for...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – It might be basketball, but there are still times where small and quick can get the best of a bigger basketball team.

         That was the case on Thursday night in the championship game of the Boy’s Bullitt County Middle School Basketball Tournament at Eastside Middle School.

         Putting on an offensive showcase, the Eastside Eagles scored 36 points in the first half and then rolled to a 66-41 victory over the Zoneton Timberwolves.

  • Christian Academy pulls away...

     LOUISVILLE – The North Bullitt Lady Eagles have been moving up the area basketball chain in recent years and coach Amber Courtney’s team got to move into the best neighborhood around on Saturday as they competed in the Raatz Fence/O’Shea’s Basketball Classic at Mercy High School.

  • Dismal-shooting East girls come...

     LOUISVILLE – A lot has been made lately of the Bullitt Lady Chargers and their suffocating defense and with good reason.

    Still, every so often you have to put the ball in the basket.

    That certainly didn’t happen very often on Saturday as the Lady Chargers dropped a 55-39 decision to Sacred Heart in the Raatz Fence/O’Shea’s Basketball Classic at Mercy High School. Bullitt East shot just 25 percent from the field against the Valkyries and made it worse by connecting on just 10 of 26 at the free throw line.
