  • Local athletes compete in...

     LOUISVILLE – After the end of the running season for the East Running Club, some of the club members competed with the Derby City Athletic Club in some national events.

    First, a number of Bullitt Countians participated in the Cross-Country Coaches Youth National Championships on Nov. 23 at E.P. Tom Sawyer State Park in Louisville.

  • Christmas comes early this hoops...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Santa is not scheduled to be here until later this wee, but for area sports fans and teams, Christmas has arrived early this year.

         Despite not having that ‘mega’ team like we had last year with the boys’ team at Bullitt East, we seem to have a lot of really good teams this winter. As of Friday night, five of the six area basketball teams had winning records with two teams undefeated and four of the five not having more than one loss.

  • Lady Cougars bounce back to...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Coming off a poor performance two days earlier in the Bullitt County Challenge, the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars needed a big performance to regain some lost momentum.

         The maroon and gray did just that on Monday, turning back a small, but athletic John Hardin squad by a 42-37 score.

         It wasn’t a perfect performance, but it was far better than what the team did in the loss the previous Saturday against Lexington Catholic.

  • Cougars end game with 10-0 run...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – Despite giving up just 23 points through the first three quarters, the Bullitt Central Cougars needed a big finish last Monday to turn back visiting North Oldham.

         The Cougars got just that as they scored the final ten points of the night to secure a 50-39 victory.

  • BC's Michael Saunders wins...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Bullitt Central’s sports teams continued a strong winter season on both the mats and the bowling lanes.

    Wrestling Results

         Coach James Huffman’s wrestling team recently competed in the King of the Bluegrass Tournament at Fairdale High School as they took a full team to the major event. The overall team score placed the Cougars seventh out of 17 teams.

  • Bullitt Central squad returns to...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Capping off a week to remember, the Bullitt Central Cougars’ Co-Ed Cheerleading Squad captured the schools’ first Kentucky High School Athletic Association State Championship since 1975 last Saturday, beating out 13 other teams for the top honor.

         Bullitt Central posted a score of 273.5 which was well ahead of the 267.4 for Graves County, the defending state champion.

  • Vision First event at East...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – With the way the holidays fell this year, namely Christmas and New Year’s Day on a Wednesday, as well as the way the school breaks were lined-up, the traditional holiday basketball tournaments are a little more spread out this winter as there are basically three different times for the tournaments.

    In addition, because of the scheduling, two teams, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles and the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars, opted to participate in only one holiday tournament this season.

  • Lady Eagles topple Assumption

     HEBRON ESTATES – A little smoke wasn’t going to deter the North Bullitt Lady Eagles from the biggest regular season win in school history on Saturday as the green and gold stunned visiting Assumption 43-41 in the first game of the annual Bullitt County Challenge.

    In the three game Challenge, played at North Bullitt this season, the Lady Eagles picked up a win as did Bullitt East as they cruised past Grayson County 56-39. Keeping it from being a sweep for the local teams was Lexington Catholic’s lopsided victory over Bullitt Central.

  • BE wins sixth straight

     Bullitt East won for the sixth straight time to open the season on Saturday when they pulled away from a 37-37 halftime tie to beat Shelby County 68-52 in the Mike Casey Classic at Shelby County.

    The Bullitt East defense turned it around at halftime, holding the Rockets to eight points in the third quarter and just seven points in the fourth quarter.

  • NB rallies, but Central prevails...

     HEBRON ESTATES – After watching Bullitt Central score the first 11 points of the game, lead by 25-15 at halftime before surging ahead 39-22 late in the third quarter, some fans at North Bullitt on Friday might have decided to beat the traffic and leave early.

    Bad idea. Those fans missed the most exciting part of the game as North Bullitt rallied to within 52-47 with 1:12 remaining in the game. After a Bullitt Central free throw, North Bullitt had a solid look at the basket, but junior Chase McKenzie’s three-pointer spun out with a minute left in the game.
