  • Joe B. Hall Avenue:...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - The name who had maybe the toughest coaching job in college basketball in 1972 will soon be honored in the city where he had his first coaching job.

    Joe B. Hall was selected to replace the legendary coach Adolph Rupp at the University of Kentucky. Rupp was one of the all-time top coaches in America and didn’t particularly want to leave his job at the mandatory retirement age of 70.

    But Hall followed his mentor and won one NCAA title, an NIT title and eight Southeastern Conference crowns.

  • Life at the top of Sixth Region...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - The Bullitt East Chargers hosted Iroquois on Tuesday and learned that they still have some work to do to compete with the top teams in the Sixth Region.

    The Raiders, getting 32 points from Jeremaine Jackson and 18 from Donovan Gibbs, pulled away over the final quarter and a half for an 80-59 victory. Bullitt East trailed 39-32 at halftime and pulled within 42-39 on a three-pointer by freshman Rusty Troutman early in the third quarter.

  • Girls' Bullitt County...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - Fans of girls’ basketball will be in their element on Saturday as all three area high school teams take part in the Bullitt County Challenge at Bullitt Central.

        This is the second year for the event which has each of the three area teams taking on a team from outside of Bullitt County. Last year’s event was held at Bullitt East.

        This time around, Bullitt Central will be the host school for the three-game event.

  • Lady Cougars win, but BC, NB...

        LOUISVILLE - With their shooting eye slowly returning, the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars are quickly gaining momentum after struggling through the games around the first of the year.

        Another sign of the increased confidence came on Tuesday as the maroon and gray traveled into Louisville and beat Seneca (6-10) 54-43. The key was better shooting and also holding the Redhawks’ Portia Durrett to 18 points, four below her average this season.

  • Lady Chargers have no trouble...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - Over the previous four seasons, since Bullitt East joined the Sixth Region, the games between the Lady Chargers and Iroquois have been some of the most anticipated games of the regular season.

        Not this year.

  • Defense is stout as Lady...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - The start of a busy week turned out to be no problem for the Bullitt East Lady Chargers as they rolled past both Presentation and Spencer County on Tuesday and Wednesday of last week.

        The two games were the first of four games in five days that Bullitt East was to play last week. The busy schedule got busier when the Spencer County game was added on Wednesday after being snowed out the week before. The good news was that the contest was shifted to Mount Washington, giving the Lady Chargers a seventh home game this winter.

  • Eastside overcomes Bobcats...

    BERNHEIM -- Steady and strong got the best of spectacular on Thursday night in the ‘A’ Division Championship game of the Bullitt County Middle School Basketball Tournament at Bernheim Middle School.

    The Eastside Eagles, under the direction of head coach Jerry Troutman, did just about everything right, except making free throws, as they turned back the Bullitt Lick Bobcats 51-37 for the program’s second straight title.

  • 'B' final turns into a...

    BERNHEIM -- With 90 seconds remaining in Thursday’s ‘B’ Division Championship of the Bullitt County Middle School Tournament, the Mount Washington Generals trailed the Eastside Eagles 38-28.

    Considering that Eastside had just reeled off the last 17 points of the game, the view was not very pleasant for the Generals.

  • Lady Chargers drop two in big...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - Yes Virginia, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers did make it home for Christmas in 2009. They just didn’t stay home very long over the holidays.

    Playing in two of the top girls’ tournaments in the state, the Lady Chargers posted a 6-2 record playing in the Republic Bank Holiday Classic at Lexington Catholic and then the Culver’s Lady Gator Holiday Classic in Bowling Green. The red and gold lost one game in each of the two events.

  • East starts LIT play Tuesday

    LOUISVILLE - The revamped Boys’ Louisville Invitational Tournament will start tonight with a new format and only one team from outside of Jefferson County - the Bullitt East Chargers.

    This will be the fourth trip to the LIT for the Chargers, but the first time that they will be there on equal footing with all the other teams. The three previous trips all had Bullitt East as one of the four ‘invited’ teams.

    This is the first season in which the Chargers became part of the pool of teams eligible for the tournament from the Sixth and Seventh Regions.
