  • Cougars look to take steps up...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - Building a dynamic baseball program at Bullitt Central has taken a little longer than fourth-year head coach Tommy Alvey expected.

        The good news is that the coach can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. First and foremost, that light is a beacon to the Cougars’ new field. Finally, the maroon and gray have a home.

  • Hoffman takes over growing Lady...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - A stint as the Bullitt East softball Fall Ball coach turned into a full-time gig recently for Ricky Hoffman. Real recent in fact.

        The resignation of former head coach Ed Phelps didn’t happen until late January. Hoffman was able to work with the program when practice started Feb. 15, but he wasn’t officially in the post until a few weeks ago.

  • January to forget hampered NB

        HEBRON ESTATES - After winning a second straight game in the team’s own holiday tournament on Dec. 22, the North Bullitt Eagles had a 5-3 record.

        Even after a few holiday bumps, the squad’s record was 6-6 heading into the new year.

        That is where the good news stopped for the 2009-2010 Eagles. A zero-for-January swoon, including a double overtime loss to Bullitt Central, zapped North Bullitt’s confidence. There were just two more victories in an 8-20 campaign.

  • No seniors? No problem for Lady...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - Veteran Bullitt Central softball coach Buddy Gallemore will be the first to agree with you when you point out just how young his 2010 Lady Cougars are.

        In the very next breath, Gallemore will tell you that his team won’t use that as an excuse this year. He will also remind you that a players’ class at Bullitt Central isn’t exclusive to their experience level.

  • BC's Bennett finds a good...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - When some bigger schools went in other directions, Bullitt Central football standout Jeremaie Bennett found the perfect fit at Pikeville College in eastern Kentucky.

  • Crooked shooting kept BC from...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - In the spring of 2010, the past basketball season at Bullitt Central could easily be labeled ‘The Team that Couldn’t Shoot Straight.’

        In the spring of 2012, the most recent season might just be recalled as the foundation being laid for a rebuilt program.

        Cougar head coach Joe Pat Lee can look at both situations and smile.

  • Lady Eagles set to make another...

        HEBRON ESTATES - With six experienced seniors returning from last year’s 24th District Champions, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles are looking for big results during the 2010 season.

        The good news is that the program is stable at the top with the return of head coach Eric Lambert. This will be his second season as the leader after the program went through a series of coaching changes the previous few years.

  • BE's big rally falls short...

    LOUISVILLE - A pair of long droughts put the Bullitt East Lady Chargers behind the eight ball on Sunday afternoon in the Sixth Region Championship game and not even a remarkable comeback was enough as the red and gold lost a 48-43 decision to Butler.

    The Lady Chargers, the state’s 16th-ranked team, went nearly seven minutes early in the second quarter with only three free throws to show for it and followed that up with a six minute scoreless span in the third quarter that allowed Butler to take a 36-21 lead.

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - It was Tuesday, Feb. 9. A heavy blanket of snow covered the region, bringing transportation to a virtual halt.

        Several of the flights in and out of Louisville’s International Airport were cancelled, including one scheduled to fly to Orlando, Fla. the next morning.
