  • Lady Chargers prepared for a big...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The expectations for the Bullitt East Lady Chargers are always high.

    This winter, the plans are bigger and grander than even normal.

    With the combination of a strong senior class and an exceptional freshman group of players, the Lady Chargers are poised for big things at the district, regional and state level.

  • It will be guards galore for NB

     HEBRON ESTATES – If North Bullitt head coach Amber Courtney was working in the NBA then she would be looking to trade some guards for some ‘bigs.’

    But you can’t do that in high school basketball. You have to play with the cards that you are dealt. So, Courtney and her guard-oriented Lady Eagles will go into battle this winter long on back-court talent and experience and short on tall.

    The Lady Eagles don’t have a player over 5-8 this season, which leads Courtney to say that her team will start five guards each and every night.

  • Lady Cougars can’t get any...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – High school basketball coaches love to have senior leaders.

    For second-year Bullitt Central girls’ head coach Kyle Roach that is not a luxury he will not have this winter. The leader part he feels he will have, but the Lady Cougar head coach will have no seniors this season.

  • Big plays sink Chargers'...

     RADCLIFF – Bullitt East’s season back in the sun faded to black on Friday as the red and gold couldn’t overcome a blizzard of big plays in the Class 5-A, Region 2 Championship game, falling to perennial power John Hardin 28-14.

         The Chargers played well enough to win. In fact, Bullitt East had 20 more snaps on offense than the Bulldogs and finished with 35 more yards of total offense, but the road team could not convert big fourth down plays nor stop John Hardin’s speed on the perimeter.

  • Locals earn Girls' All...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – A total of seven local players were named to the All-Sixth Region Girls’ Soccer Team that was recently announced by the area coaches.

         On the first team of 11 players, the coaches selected Bullitt East senior Meghan Roby along with Lady Charger junior Alnee Tutson and freshman Christian Foster. Joining that first group was North Bullitt senior Taylor Johnson.

  • BE's Gravens picks St....

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – For some high school seniors, both for those involved in athletics and those not in sports, picking a college can be a daunting task.

         Not for Bullitt East senior softball standout Kelsey Gravens. In fact, Gravens didn’t even wait until her senior year to make a selection.

  • Middle school football near?...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Does Bullitt County need middle school football?

    You bet.

    Is Bullitt County going to get middle school football?

    That question is not so easy to answer.

    What is probably a given is that we are not going to get middle school football in the traditional sense anytime soon. That being teams at each of the six local middle schools with local fields and coaches in the building and such.

  • Lady Chargers hosting major ‘...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – In what has grown into one of the top pre-season girls’ basketball events will be played this weekend as the 12th Annual Bullitt East/High Potential Showcase is contested at Bullitt East.

    There will be 14 teams taking part this season with two ‘scrimmages’ on Friday night and then a full slate of five scrimmages on Saturday starting at 9 a.m. and going for the next 13 hours.

    Besides Bullitt East taking part on Saturday, area fans can also get their first look at North Bullitt when they scrimmage on Friday.

  • Chargers next up to stop John...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East Chargers will get a golden chance at glory on Friday when the red and gold travel to Radcliff for the Class 5-A, Region 2 Championship Game against John Hardin.

    This will be the sixth straight season that John Hardin has played in a regional final. The Bulldogs have won the previous five times.

  • Best of five final goes to MWMS...

     ZONETON – The fifth time was just what the doctor ordered for the Mount Washington Lady Generals on Thursday in the championship game of the Girls’ ‘B’ Division of the Bullitt County Middle School Tournament.

         Amazingly, this was the fifth meeting this season between arch-rivals and good friends Mount Washington and Eastside. The two squads split the first four meetings, setting up this meeting at Zoneton Middle School to break the tie.
