  • Wall-to-wall basketball this...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After absolutely no basketball last weekend, there will be more than enough to make up for it this weekend with a flurry of games including the Girls’ Bullitt County Challenge on Saturday at North Bullitt.

    Of course, as we learned last week, the weather can change the best-laid plans of anyone in a hurry.

    So, weather permitting, the big weekend starts on Friday when Bullitt Central pays a visit to North Bullitt for a girl/boy doubleheader that will start at 6 p.m.

  • Football honors abound for three...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON - Football honors are rolling in for area coaches and players after a successful season for the area teams.

    The honors came from the Kentucky Football Coaches Association.

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The first and only meeting between two old rivals went to Bullitt East on Monday as the Chargers turned back visiting North Bullitt 84-58 in a boys’ high school clash.

    The victory continued Bullitt East’s recent winning ways against their old rivals. The victory was the 18th in a row for the red and gold and over the past dozen seasons, the Chargers have a 22-1 advantage. The last North Bullitt win over Bullitt East came on Feb. 6, 2004, by a 72-64 margin.

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – In a pair of matches last week, the Bullitt Central bowling teams came up just short as they dropped both matches.

    Bullitt Central fell to 2-3 for the season.

  • Lady Cougars hang on for...

     BARDSTOWN – Despite lacking experience and seniors, the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars showed some moxie on Tuesday as they opened the 2013-14 season with a 50-45 victory at Thomas Nelson High School.

         Bullitt Central did it against a team that started three seniors. In addition, the Lady Generals had already played a game, albeit, a lopsided loss to LaRue County, one of the top teams in the state this season.

  • BC boys run into some early road...

          BARDSTOWN – The opening game of the 2013-14 season turned out to be a tough one for the Bullitt Central Cougars as they went on the road Tuesday and got ambushed by Thomas Nelson High School, 81-58.

         Thomas Nelson won just six games last season, the first for the school in varsity competition, but with the help of three transfer students, the Generals are suddenly one of the top teams in the always tough Fifth Region.

  • Mixed results from Tuesday night...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE –     In a trio of mid-week games last week, there were mixed results before the snow arrived on Friday and forced all games that day to be postponed.

         On Tuesday, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers opened the season with a short trip into Louisville and the red and gold made it look easy as they rolled past Seventh Region foe Presentation 74-28.

  • Working out Dec. 21 for Make-A-...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON--This is the second year Anytime Fitness in Mount Washington is trying to raise awareness in the community, but this time the charity hit close to home for owner Paul Ing.

    The fitness center will host Workout for Wishes Dec. 21 at 10 a.m. All of the proceeds from the event will then be donated to Make-A-Wish Foundation.

    Ing has a special connection with Make-A-Wish because they granted a wish for his son, Nathan, before he passed four years ago. He battled with brain tumors for two and a half years.

  • East’s Ralph signs to play...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Baseball is not always considered a game involving a lot of speed.

    However, one part of baseball happened very fast for Bullitt East senior Alex Ralph and that was his recruitment by Bellarmine University to join the Knights’ squad starting next fall. Ralph recently made it all official, holding a ceremony in the Bullitt East Media Center in which his parents, sisters, coaches and teammates were present for the big event.

  • North Bullitt girls show...

     HEBRON ESTATES - Amber Courtney liked what she saw in the season opener for her North Bullitt Lady Eagles.

    And the crowd assembled for the Monday night affair against Bardstown also seemed to enjoy the uptempo play from the Lady Eagles.

    Thanks to a 21-2 third quarter advantage, North Bullitt walked away with a 77-45 victory over the Lady Tigers.

    “Overall, I’m pleased with the effort,” said Courtney. “I like a lot of things I saw but there is still a lot to work on.”
