  • BC’s Gossett resigns; will be...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Just two months ago, Mike Gossett was the one doing the hiring of a new football coach at Bullitt Central.

    Now, Gossett has been hired as a football coach.

    On Monday, Gossett announced that he would be stepping down as Bullitt Central’s athletic director at the end of the school year in June. The new landing spot will be at Southern High School where Gossett will become the head football coach.

    Gossett made it clear that he did not drop the Bullitt Central job to take the position at Southern.

  • OT heart breaker--Chargers fall...

    VALLEY STATION-- In a game filled with scoring spurts, it was the Doss Dragons that made the final run in the semi-finals of the Boys' Sixth Region Tournament on Tuesday as they managed to slip past Bullitt East 65-61.
        It was a frustrating loss for the Chargers as they played well enough to secure a win and a return spot in the championship game two days later. Instead, it turned into a nightmare of "what ifs" and "what might have been" long into the night on Tuesday.

  • BC's Sanders finishes 7th...

    LEXINGTON-- It all may have happened over two weeks later than expected, but the Bullitt Central wrestling program made a strong showing at least week's Kentucky State Wrestling Championships at the Alltech Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park.
        The meet was originally scheduled for a Friday-Saturday event back on Feb. 20-21, but heavy snow that week forced a postponement. So, the event was pushed back and held last Tuesday and Wednesday.

  • Kerberg adds to Union’s haul of...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Union College head coach Zak Willis, who just completed his first season as the Bulldogs’ head coach, is quickly developing a pipeline to Bullitt Central.

    For the third time this season, the Bulldogs’ head coach reached into the Cougar program and got a player, adding Bullitt Central lineman Micalan Kerberg to his roster.

    Earlier during the recruiting season Bullitt Central seniors Zack Patton and Cameron Mallory signed with the Bulldogs.

  • Local players have big impact on...

     FRANKFORT – This past weekend’s Mid-South Conference Men’s Basketball Tournament had a distinct Mt. Washington flare as four residents took part including three former Bullitt East players.

    In fact, in Saturday’s two semi-final games, each of the four teams had one Mt. Washington player taking part and for the most part making key contributions.

  • Mother Nature is kicking serious...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – I’ve always heard that ‘Father Time is undefeated’ and as I get older I know that be true.

    Still Mother Nature is giving Father Time a run for his money as the top pain in the behind when it comes to sports in the area during this time of year.

    It was a pretty normal winter sports season until the past few weeks. The first big snow cancelled a week of basketball and forced the postponement of the Kentucky State Wrestling Tournament.

  • Lady Chargers can't reach...

    VALLEY STATION-- The Mercy Jaguars have been a tall mountain to climb this season, a mountain just a little too big for the Bullitt East Lady Chargers.
        For the fourth time this season, the two heavyweights clashed on Sunday in the championship game of the Sixth Region Tournament. And, again, the Jaguars pulled out a win, advancing to the state tournament with a 61-54 victory. The four scores were all remarkably close. All four times Mercy scored between 61 and 64 points while Bullitt East scored either 54 or 55 in each.

  • Finally!! East defeats North in...

    VALLEY STATION Ð After his team returned from a 10-day break from games at the end of the regular season, Bullitt East Lady Charger head coach Chris Stallings talked about such breaks shouldnÕt affect defense and rebounding as much as they do offensive play.
        The Lady Chargers got to test that philosophy again on Saturday after the GirlsÕ Sixth Region Tournament was put on hold for three days because of heavy snow on Wednesday night when the semi-final meeting with North Bullitt was originally scheduled to be played.

  • Lady Chargers win a big one,...

      SHIVELY – Five years of post-season frustration to Butler were put to rest Monday as the Bullitt East Lady Chargers pulled out a 56-53 win over the Bearettes on their home court in the opening round of the Sixth Region Tournament.

    In each of the five previous seasons, Butler had ended the Lady Chargers’ season, including twice in the regional championship game. A year ago, on the same court, Butler had pulled away late to beat Bullitt East 68-58. That Butler team went on to win the state championship.

  • NB handles business, downs...

     HEBRON ESTATES -- At halftime on Monday’s Sixth Region tournament opener, North Bullitt Lady Eagle coach David Marion had a pretty simple question.

    “I asked them if they wanted to play Wednesday,” said Marion, who was recently voted Coach of the Year for the Sixth Region.

    At that point, Marion wasn’t sure his Lady Eagles would advance to play Bullitt East on Wednesday in the regional semi-finals.
