  • Local swimmers in Region Four...

      LOUISVILLE – Friday’s Region Four Swimming and Diving Championships at the University of Louisville’s Ralph Wright Natatorium was a chance for Bullitt County’s small, but competitive program to show off at the end of the season.

    All three Bullitt County high schools practice and condition under one coach, Curtis Fuchs, but in meets the teams break down and compete under the banner of their own school.

  • State Bowling Tourney turns...

      LEXINGTON – It was unfortunately a short visit to Lexington for the local bowlers who had qualified for last week’s Kentucky State Bowling Tournament at Collins Eastland Lanes.

    On Thursday, North Bullitt senior Errik Grant, coming off a herculean effort to finish as the runner-up in the Region Three Tournament a week earlier, struggled to find that magic at his first state meet and did not advance out of the qualifying round of the Boys’ Individual Tournament.

  • East wins double OT thriller...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Rallying from a 53-41 deficit after three quarters, the Bullitt East Chargers pulled victory from the jaws of defeat on Thursday as the red and gold defeated visiting Fairdale 91-88 in a double overtime marathon.

    Bullitt East despite the fact that the team is going through another serious bout of injuries and illness. Against Fairdale, seniors Konnor Polson (mono), Derrick Donigan (hamstring) and Grant Skaggs (sprained ankle) either didn’t even dress for the contest or were very limited in their participation in the game.

  • Big second quarter powers Lady...

     HEBRON ESTATES – A 25-5 surge in the second quarter was more than enough for the North Bullitt Lady Eagles on Tuesday as the green and gold rolled past visiting Marion County 69-40 on Senior Night.

    The team has just one senior, Lauren Deel, and she led all scorers in the game with 18 points.

  • Luttrell’s basket at :03 lifts...

     HEBRON ESTATES – A short jumper in the lane from junior Peyton Luttrell as the clock ticked to :03 helped overcome a few North Bullitt miscues moments earlier and gave the Eagles a 45-43 win over visiting Elizabethtown on Tuesday.

    After eight straight losses, North Bullitt head coach Korey Craddock will take a win anyway he can get it.

    “It’s always good to get a win on Senior Night,” the coach said a few moments after the game.

  • East’s Foster heading to Eastern...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – It took a little longer than expected for the obvious to happen, but finally Bullitt East senior soccer standout Christian Foster was able to put pen to paper and sign a national letter-of-intent to play at the next level for the Eastern Kentucky Lady Colonels.

    It was earlier believed that Foster could sign in the fall during the early signing period, but a few days before that, the senior and her coaches learned that soccer players had to wait until the winter signing period. No problem. Foster never wavered from her commitment.

  • Be ready when fishing...

     FRANKFORT – Planning a fishing trip more than a couple days ahead of time can be a gamble in late winter when the weather is a mixed bag and the favorable conditions here today may be gone tomorrow.

    With some advance preparation, you can be ready to grab what you need and go when that friend calls at daybreak or the impulse strikes and the schedule allows for a last-minute trip.

    Performing regular maintenance on your reels can prevent catastrophic problems or costly repairs down the road.

  • North’s Johnson makes it all...

     HEBRON ESTATES – It’s always good when you know exactly where you want ot go to college early in the process.

    That was certainly the case for North Bullitt senior Nate Johnson who last week singed to play his college football at Centre College in Danville, Kentucky.

    “I’ve known for a while now,” Johnson said after a ceremony last Wednesday in the North Bullitt Media Center. “They started (recruiting me) before anyone else. They started after my junior season.”

  • Hard work allows Miller to lasso...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON-- Years of hard work have resulted in one Bullitt East student roping a college scholarship in a unique sport.

    For the first time ever, a Bullitt East High student has been awarded a rodeo scholarship.

    Blaine Miller has been riding horses since before he could walk.

    “I used to sit him on the saddle with me while I warmed up and, right before I went out, I’d hand him back to his mom,” said Rick Miller, Blaine’s father and retired-rodeo competitor.

  • Late games preparing teams for...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – With less than two weeks remaining in the regular season, local basketball teams might be thinking more about the upcoming post-season but there were still numerous games this past weekend.

    First and foremost, North Bullitt closed out regular season district play with a set of games at Moore High School. The Lady Eagles picked up a win and secured the number one seed for the district tourney, but the boys fell hard to the Mustangs and will now have the number three seed before Moore and Southern.
