  • Big week for post-season action

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – This is a big week for the smaller ‘winter’ sports programs in their post-season action.

    The Kentucky High School Bowling Tournament will be held in Lexington at Collins Eastland Lanes on Thursday and Friday with Bullitt County entrants both days.

  • Depth plays big role in two key...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Depth is a great luxury to have for any high school basketball and Bullitt East head coach Bob Blackburn has praised his team’s numbers numerous times this season.

  • BC’s Dukes signs football letter...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – If nothing else, Bullitt Central senior Cameron Dukes had a lot of options when it came to where he would attend college.

     First, Dukes had the option of multiple sports from which to get offers from schools. Then, he had a great deal of talent attract offers once schools knew which sport he wanted to pursue.

  • Both East teams finalize top...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – It was pretty much the basketball equivalent of dotting the ‘I’s and crossing the ‘T’s on Tuesday for the Bullitt East basketball teams as they took on Jeffersontown in the final 24th District games of the regular season.

    With two relatively easy wins, the Charger teams both wrapped up the number one seeds for the upcoming district tournament that will start on Feb. 22 at Christian Academy (hosted by Whitefield Academy) in Louisville. The two Bullitt East teams will not take the court until Feb. 23.

     

  • BE girls’ team, BC’s Taylor...

      LOUISVILLE – For the second year on a row, the Bullitt East Lady Charger bowling team qualified for the Kentucky State Tournament that will be held this week at Collins Eastland Lanes in Lexington.

     In each of the last two seasons, Bullitt East has reached the final of the Region Three Tournament at Ken Bowl Lanes, but finished second.

     At last year’s state tournament, the Lady Chargers fell in the quarter-finals to Simon Kenton.

  • North sweeps pair from Central...

     HEBRON ESTATES – It wasn’t exactly ‘by the book’, but North Bullitt basketball coach Korey Craddock will be the first to tell you that he has never seen ‘the book’.

    In a tight battle with arch-rival Bullitt Central on Tuesday, the Eagles were on their heels a little bit after the Cougars went on an 8-2 surge fueled by a pair of three-pointers from freshman Mason Shifflett. The second bomb pulled the maroon and gray within 51-43 with three minute to play.

  • Bullitt East archery off to...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East archery team is off and winning to start the 2016 season.

    This past weekend, the team hosted its only tournament and had over 1,000 shooters present on Saturday, the largest event the program has hosted.

    The Chargers finished first as a team with a score of 3,393. Bullitt East’s Sydney Marcum was the top female shooter with a score of 295. On the boy’s side, teammates Sam Wilson and Aldon Stidom tied for third overall with a score of 294. Morgan Vaughn also had a high score of 289.

  • Sander named to head Bullitt...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – After meeting some members and parents on Saturday night, new Bullitt East football coach Mark Sander admitted to being nervous.

    That might seem a little odd of a man who has coached for 12 previous seasons, as well as playing in major college bowl games and as well as on Sunday afternoons for three seasons in the National Football League with the Miami Dolphins.

    As Sander noted, getting back into coaching after two years on the sidelines has changed the concept a little.

  • Duvall returns to action

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Christmas came a little late for the Bullitt East Lady Chargers and standout guard Lindsey Duvall on Thursday when the junior was cleared to return to practice and games after being out since mid-November following knee surgery for a cancerous growth.

  • BC turns around sour season with...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Just when it looked like the Bullitt Central Cougars were toast, the maroon and gray turned the season around over a seven-day span, winning three of four games and gaining momentum and excitement for a late run into the post-season.

    Even the one loss, a 76-75 overtime setback to DeSales in the King of the Bluegrass Showcase on Saturday, had a number of positive points. The Cougars played without senior Chase Craddock, who was off on a football recruiting trip.
