  • Foul! Chargers falter late at...

        FAIRDALE - A first half of hope turned into a second half of frustration on Tuesday for the Bullitt East Chargers in their showdown with district rival Fairdale.

        Bullitt East played a strong first half, pushing the margin to 10 points and then leading 28-20 at halftime. That lead evaporated in the third quarter and after freshman Trey Rakes tied the game at 51-51 with 4:50 remaining in the game, Fairdale closed with a 12-5 run to win 63-56.

  • No Thacker. No Problem. East...

        FAIRDALE - No Kayla Thacker was no problem for the Bullitt East Lady Chargers on Tuesday as the red and gold rolled on the road to a 48-32 victory over Fairdale, taking a stranglehold on the top spot in the 24th District seeding race.

  • Southern gets the best from...

        HEBRON ESTATES - For the first time since the two schools both became members of the 24th District, Southern pulled a sweep on Tuesday, taking both games in a girl/boy doubleheader.

        Despite playing at home, it was slow starts in both games that proved to be too difficult for the Eagle teams to overcome.

        First, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles fell behind 19-9 in the first quarter and trailed 35-20 halftime. Not even a 29-point fourth quarter could rally the Lady Eagles as Southern won 71-62.

  • Ice Cold - Lady Chargers fall in...

        LOUISVILLE - There is never a good time to have a bad shooting night, but the Bullitt East Lady Chargers found one of the worst times of the season to misfire during a 35-28 loss to Sacred Heart in the team’s opening round game of the 2010 Girls’ Louisville Invitational Tournament.

        Bullitt East, the fourth-seeded team in the tournament, lost to fifth-seeded Sacred Heart a night after the Valkyries had barely beaten 12th-seeded Fern Creek 51-49.

  • Bullitt Central Homecoming:...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - The running joke is that for homecoming, you schedule a team you think you have a chance to defeat.

        For Bullitt Central, there was no cakewalk on Friday.

        As a matter of fact, the Cougars faced two of the most athletic teams in Jefferson County.

        While the king and queen may have gone home happy, there was little joy in the Bullitt Central locker rooms.

  • Bullitt Central, Bennett get...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - The start of a new year was the start of a new tradition.

        After five years, the title sponsor of the football Bullitt County Cup and the Bullitt County Player of the Year has changed.

        Tim Gonterman and Mark Schmid were present to present Bullitt Central’s Jeremaie Bennett with the Player of the Year honor for a second year in a row.

        And they were present to hand the new Bullitt Cup award to Bullitt Central head coach Dan Leasor and principal Christy Coulter.

  • Bullitt teams stay in Sixth...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Cancel the moving van.

    In a surprising turn of events, the Kentucky High School Athletic Association’s Board of Control on Wednesday voted 16-1 not to accept a recommendation from the Metro Area Athletic Directors to realign the Sixth and Seventh Regions for basketball, baseball and softball, a move that would have shifted the three Bullitt County schools from the Sixth to the Seventh Region.

  • Central girls win, boys fall at...

    TAYLORSVILLE - The Bullitt Central basketball programs beat the snow and one of them picked up a win on Friday on a trip to Taylorsville to take on former district rivals Spencer County.

    The action started with the boys game, but the Cougars could not make it two in a row as the maroon and gray dropped a 56-42 decision to the Bears.

  • Cougars pick up seventh win;...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - It has been a struggle at times this season for the Bullitt Central Cougars, but the team has already scraped together three more wins than all of last season with a month still remaining in the regular season.

  • Chargers stay hot in beating...

    TAYLORSVILLE - Playing for the fourth time in six days, the Bullitt East Chargers went into one of the most hostile environments and came away with a win on Saturday as they beat Spencer County 80-63.

    For many years, Bullitt East made the short trip to Taylorsville at least once every season when the two rivals were both in the old 29th District. That changed five years ago and now the teams meet only once each season, rotating home games.

    This contest was originally set for Jan. 9, but was postponed because of snow.
