  • Chargers put the LIT behind them...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - Coming off the emotional one-point loss to Pleasure Ridge Park in the Louisville Invitational Tournament, the Bullitt East Chargers had almost an entire week in the middle of the season to re-energize their batteries.

        The time was obviously put the good use as the red and gold returned to the court last week and picked up a pair of wins in a 24-hour period.

  • 2009 - It Was A Year Worth...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - There was no lack of great sports accomplishments by Bullitt County athletes both locally and on the state scene in 2009.

    The highlight of the year was a one-two finish by Bullitt East’s Jackie Stevens and Lindy Young in the shot put at the Kentucky State Track and Field Championships in Louisville in late May. Stevens doubled on her successful day as she also won the state discus title. The two wins by Stevens were the first state track titles for the school in 21 years.

  • Aubrey out for Eagles as losses...

        HEBRON ESTATES - Coming off a double-overtime loss to Bullitt Central, the bad news just kept rolling in last week for the North Bullitt Eagles.

        On Monday, it was learned that senior guard Kenton Aubrey had suffered a broken foot in the loss to the Cougars. Aubrey went to the bench with the injury in the first half of the Bullitt Central game, but then returned to the court and played most of the second half and the two extra periods.

  • Double OT - Cougars win 74-70...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - Local basketball fans got their money’s worth and a whole lot more on Friday as Bullitt Central and North Bullitt battled for two overtimes before the Cougars pulled out a 74-70 victory.

        This second meeting between the two rivals this season is the one that will be used for seeding the upcoming 24th District Tournament, but that was of little importance to Bullitt Central head coach Joe Pat Lee.

  • Local swim teams in regional...

        LOUISVILLE - The first of the winter sports to enter the post-season will be swimming as they move into regional action this weekend.

        The three Bullitt County swimming teams will be competing the Region II Championships at the Ralph Wright Natatorium on the University of Louisville campus. The opening rounds will be held on Friday with the top swimmers returning for the finals on Saturday.

  • Stretches of strong play power...

        LOUISVILLE - A 10-3 surge over the final two minutes by the Bullitt East Lady Chargers led to another signature victory as the red and gold got the best of Owensboro Catholic 54-50 on Saturday in the Raatz Fence Classic at Mercy High School.

        The win was the ninth in a row for the Lady Chargers since losing to Marion County, the state’s top-ranked team, back on Dec. 28. Bullitt East will now take an 18-2 mark into this week’s Girls’ Louisville Invitational Tournament at Bellarmine University.

  • Cougar teams put a yell into the...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - The Bullitt Central Lady Cougars stayed hot from the outside on Wednesday and won for the fourth time in ten days Wednesday as they rolled past Atherton 81-49.

        In the second game on Wednesday, the Bullitt Central Cougars had their biggest offensive explosion of the season and rode that to an 85-78 victory despite the Rebels getting 43 points from Dwayne Gordon.

        The two games were make-up contests for games lost back on Jan. 9 because of snow.

    Lady Cougars Streaking

  • BC, BE grab wins at Girls'...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - Trailing by three points with just 1:15 remaining in the highlight game of the 2010 Bullitt County Challenge, Bullitt Central head coach Bryan Bates had just one option - call for a five-point play.

        The coach didn’t exactly draw it up that way of course. But the rare play was the turning point on Saturday as the Cougars rallied with the final eight points of the game to beat the Lady Hawks 53-47.

  • Lady Cougars get the 'W...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Knocking down nine three-pointers in the first half, the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars were able to keep North Bullitt at a safe distance on Friday in the second meeting of the season between the two rivals.

    Still, after Bullitt Central won 77-62, both coaches had reason to smile.

  • Local football players honored

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - The two best players in Bullitt County football this season both earned more post-season honors recently when they were part of the statewide Coaches’ All-State Teams in voting conducted by the state’s largest newspaper.

    Bullitt East senior lineman Mason Kelly, at 6-4, 311 pounds was voted to the third-team All-State Honor Roll after a season in which he anchored both the offensive and defensive lines for the Chargers.
