  • Hunt named fifth head coach in...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Just a month after long-time head coach Troy Barr stepped down, Bullitt East wasted no time in promoting assistant coach John Hunt to be the fifth coach in the program’s 34-year history.

  • BE's Okruch set for two...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Bullitt East senior Andrew Okruch is ready to become an engineer – in more ways than one.

         Okruch recently made it official that he would attend Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in Terre Haute, Indiana.

  • NB's Stice decides to stay...

     HEBRON ESTATES – Extending her basketball career beyond her senior season was not something that North Bullitt’s Reba Stice had really considered until this past holiday season.

     HEBRON ESTATES – Family is important to North Bullitt senior Caitlin Montgomery and that was a big reason that she has decided to continue her basketball career at Spalding University in Louisville.

    Montgomery also had looked into playing at St. Catharine, but in the end felt that Spalding was the best option for her.

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Bullitt Central senior Kristen Collins finding her way to Midway College to play women’s basketball had a few hurdles before it all became official recently.

  • BC's Riggs moving her...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Spalding women’s basketball coach Charlie Just has reached into Bullitt County for players in the past and he is doing it again this spring when he got the signature of Bullitt Central point guard Kayla Riggs on the dotted line.
