  • BC grabs key district win over...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Forget that the Moore Mustangs came into Bullitt Central's gym with only two wins this season.

  • North could be looking at two...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – If the weather holds this week, and I know that is a huge ‘IF’ the way cold and snow have affected the area over the past month, but if the weather holds, this could be one of the biggest basketball weeks ever for the North Bullitt Eagles.

         By extension, if the Eagles have a big week this week, it could set the stage for a monumental occurrence for Bullitt County basketball as a whole.

         But first, let us stick to this week and North Bullitt.

  • East gets first-ever district...

    LOUISVILLE – For the first time ever, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers beat Mercy in a 24th District game on Wednesday as they jumped on top early and then rolled to an impressive 63-38 victory.

         The game has been moved back one night before of bad weather the previous day. As it turned out, Mercy had classes on game day, but Bullitt East did not. Still, the Lady Chargers jumped out to a 23-8 lead after one quarter and never looked back, outscoring the 2010 State Champions in each quarter.

  • Pitcher Hailey Szpila signs to...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Before all is said and done at the end of the high school softball season, Bullitt Central senior Hailey Szpila may have played more games than any other player in program history.

    Even with all of that, the senior is already looking ahead to college as she has decided to continue her career at Campbellsville University. Szpila actually made her decision five months ago, but she didn’t sign all the paperwork until holding a ceremony at Bullitt Central recently.
