  • Four Bullitt wrestles qualify...

    LOUISVILLE - The first-year Bullitt East wrestling program had a solid opening trip to a regional tournament on Saturday as a pair of wrestles qualified for this week’s State Championships in Frankfort.

    Bullitt Central’s program also advanced a pair of wrestlers to the final round of the season.

    Bullitt East junior Justin Smith reached the semi-finals before losing in the 189-pound class. He eventually finished fourth to make the state meet.

  • Local swimmers improve at...

    LOUISVILLE - Bullitt County’s young and improving swimming program turned in some strong finishes at the Region II Championships on Feb. 4-5 at the Ralph Wright Natatorium on the University of Louisville campus.

    That is also the location where the three programs practice three times a week under the direction of coach Laura Flischel.

  • Area teams head to Southern H.S...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - The biggest week of the high school sports season will kick-off Monday as post-season basketball play in the 24th District Tournament kicks-off at Southern High School.

        This will be the first time that the Bullitt County teams have played post-season basketball at Southern. This will complete the five-year rotation since the realignment with each of the five schools now having hosted once.

  • Lady Chargers have all the...

    LOUISVILLE - The final tune-up before post-season play starts on Monday was a golden performance for the Bullitt East Lady Chargers as they rolled past 18th-ranked Sacred Heart 50-38 on Friday night.

    The win avenged a 35-28 loss to the Valkyries back on Jan. 27 in the Louisville Invitational Tournament. This time, Bullitt East surpassed 28 points with the first basket of the second half and never looked back.

  • North Bullitt Homecoming:...

        HEBRON ESTATES - Probably the only ones happier for the North Bullitt hoops victory on Saturday than the coaching staff were the wives of the coaches.

        In a sign of solidarity, the North Bullitt coaches refused to shave the past couple of weeks until a victory was secured.

        On Saturday evening, the coaches helped clean up the gym and probably went immediately home to remove the facial hair after a 54-36 win over Washington County.

  • Hot third quarter lifts BC over...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - Snow was on the horizon, but the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars took care of business quickly enough on Monday to defeat visiting Presentation 55-51.

        The snow started falling less than two hours after the completion of the game and Bullitt County was out of school for the next two days.

  • Bullitt Co. H.S. swim program...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Three practice as one and one competes as three if you are a member of the Bullitt County high school swimming program.

    For the fourth straight season, the three Bullitt County high schools have combined resources to be able to field swimming teams. The coach is once again Laura Flischel who started the program.

  • Bowles becomes second BE player...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - A win-win situation. You can’t beat that.

    That is what the Bowles family was saying recently when Bullitt East senior baseball standout Matt Bowles signed a national junior college letter-of-intent with John A. Logan college in Illinois.

    In addition, it was a perfect father-coach-son day for the family as Bullitt East baseball coach Jeff Bowles looked on as his son signed on the dotted line.

  • BE runs the table in Sixth Region

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - A slow start put the Bullitt East Lady Chargers behind the eight ball, but three strong quarters down the stretch left the red and gold as the only undefeated team in the Sixth Region this season after they beat Holy Cross 62-52.

        Bullitt East moved to 11-0 against regional foes this season and is the top-rated team in the computer rankings. Holy Cross, which had been undefeated against the rest of the region (they have not played Butler this season), dropped to 10-1.

  • Charger girls speed away in...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - No opposing coach knows the Bullitt East Lady Chargers better than veteran Bullitt Central mentor Bryan Bates.

        Bates knows one thing for sure - the Lady Chargers are a very good basketball team.

        That is why with a week between games for his team, Bates opted to try something a little different in Friday’s second meeting of the season between the two local rivals. Instead of trying to play at the pace that both teams probably prefer - uptempo - Bates opted to slow the game down - way down.
