  • Cougars overcome poor shooting...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - The shooting wasn’t what Bullitt Central head coach Joe Pat Lee expects from his team this season, but the overall effort was good enough on Tuesday to beat Evangel 77-61.
        The contest was the first of the season for both teams.
        Overall, the Cougars shot just 38 percent. The numbers inside the arc were not that disturbing as the maroon and gray hit 23 of 52 attempts for 44 percent. The trouble was from outside the arc as the team made just five of 21 tries or 23 percent.

  • Quick start (9-0) is more than...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - Scoring the first nine points of the game, the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars were off to the races on Tuesday in the opening game of the 2010-11 season.
        Coach Bryan Bates’ team never trailed in the game against Fifth Region rival Bethlehem as they rolled to a 75-40 victory.

  • Chargers battled through...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON - One of the worst words to the ears of any high school football coach is ‘inconsistency.’

  • North found the right attack and...

     HEBRON ESTATES - The 2010 football season will go down as a great success story for the North Bullitt Eagles.

  • Thunderstruck! Chargers roll big...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON - There will be plenty of better opponents down the road, but the Bullitt East Chargers got the 2010-11 season off to an impressive start on Monday with a 107-49 victory over visiting Shawnee.

  • Again!! Mount Washington nabs...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - The beat goes on...and on...and on.

        The Mount Washington Lady Generals picked up another Girls’ Bullitt County Middle School Basketball Championship on Thursday, surviving a late run by the Zoneton Lady Timberwolves to win another title 31-28.

        Mount Washington head coach Christal Stallings is now on a first name basis with Tim Gonterman who has handed out the winner’s trophy for the past 16 seasons. All but two of those times he has presented the trophy to the Lady Generals.

  • 'Young' can't...

        HEBRON ESTATES - The North Bullitt Lady Eagles were a very young team a year ago under then first-year head coach Amber Courtney.

        The green and gold will be younger this season.

        Losing the program’s only two seniors from a year ago was expected. Those losses left Courtney with no seniors this season and only one junior. There could well be times this season when as many as four varsity starters could be freshmen - or younger.

  • Eagles look to be stronger in a...

        HEBRON ESTATES - Over the past several seasons, wins have been few and far between for the North Bullitt Eagles.

        Because of that, expectations for this season are minimal. However, Eagle head coach Lee Barger feels his 2010-2011 team can rise above those expectations this winter and be competitive in a very tough 24th District race.

        Barger will have to do that with a much different cast than a year ago.

  • CC making huge strides locally

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - I cannot use enough adjectives to describe the strides that cross-country has made in Bullitt County over the past few years.

        There was a time when having one high school team even qualify for the state championships was major news. Heck, there was a time when having two of the six county programs fielding full teams was major news.

  • BE's Jackson headed to Ky....

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - Bullitt East baseball standout Chaz Jackson didn’t waste any time when it came to deciding on his future on the diamond.

        In a ceremony last Monday at the school, the senior signed to play baseball starting next fall at Kentucky Wesleyan College, an NCAA Division II program in Owensboro.

        Other than a short look at St. Catharine College, Jackson knew exactly where he wanted to attend college for the next four years.
