  • Late miscue costly to NB girls...

    LOUISVILLE - Participating in homecoming festivities at Whitefield Academy, North Bullitt led most of the way.

    With 10 seconds remaining and the score tied, Courtney said a missed defensive assignment led to a winning basket by the home team.

    “We’re playing much better basketball,” said Courtney. “We’ve improved tremendously.”

    On Friday, Courtney said the Lady Eagles held a 6-8 point lead throughout much of the contest. However, she said the inexperience led to a couple of key mistakes.

  • Washburn’s power is...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - Two months ago it took an overtime period for the Bullitt East Chargers to pull out a 68-58 victory over Bullitt Central in the first meeting of the season between the bitter rivals in Shepherdsville.

  • Persistence pays off for BE...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - Persistence paid off in a big way for Bullitt East senior Ryan Kahl last week as he signed a national letter of intent to play baseball at St. Catharine College in Springfield, Kentucky.

        Kahl will join former Bullitt East second baseball Jimmy Hoffman who is a freshman at the school now.

  • 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.

    Turnovers kill Lady Cougars

  • 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.
