  • Experience should fuel NB’s...

     HEBRON ESTATES -- It was a painful and frustrating 2016-17 campaign for Korey Craddock and his North Bullitt Eagles.

    A transfer of one player and an injury to the team’s leading returning scorer led to a tough season.

    However, the silver lining is that a lot of young players, including an eighth grader and several freshman, could speed up the recovery for the North Bullitt program.

    “I’m optimistic,” Craddock said of his current team. “We have a mix of youth and experience.”

  • Girton back in school at NB, but...

      HEBRON ESTATES — Last season, North Bullitt boys’ basketball coach Korey Craddock got some disappointing news.

    Corey Girton, an athletic player who would have been a cornerstone of the program, opted to attend a prep school in South Carolina.

    This year, Girton is back walking the hallways of North Bullitt.

    However, it is undecided yet on whether Girton will be able to play during his junior season.

    An appeal to allow Girton to play has been sent to the Kentucky High School Athletic Association.

  • State Rep. Dan Johnson has died

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Just after posting a somber Facebook message, the Bullitt County sheriff's office discovered the body of state Rep. Dan Johnson Wednesday evening.

  • Eastside ‘B’ remains as the top...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Jumping out to a 12-4 lead in the first quarter, the Eastside Eagles’ ‘B’ team cruised to a 44-28 win over the Hebron Panthers on Thursday in the final game of the Bullitt County Boys’ Middle School Basketball Tournament.

    Playing on their home floor, the Eastside squad wrapped up a perfect season against Bullitt County foes as they repeated as the ‘B’ Division titelist.

  • Roby will be at UL in the spring...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – While Taylor Roby went through the signing ceremony at Bullitt East recently, she will not be playing softball for the Lady Chargers in the spring.

    At the suggestion of the University of Louisville, Roby will graduate from Bullitt East at the end of the first semester in December and will then start taking classes at Louisville in January. She will then redshirt next spring with the Lady Cards before becoming a full member of that team in the spring of 2019.

  • East’s Poole makes quick work of...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – When the high school soccer season ended on Oct. 20 for Julia Poole, she thought she had played her last competitive game.

    But in short order, feelings of look not playing the sport she loved started to creep into her mind. A couple of phone calls later Poole was in contact with Spalding head coach Shilo Rayburn and a visit was arranged. On the spot, Poole committed to the Golden Eagles.

    On Nov. 9, at a ceremony in the Bullitt East Media Center, Poole made it all official, signing with the school located in downtown Louisville.

  • BE’s Roby finally makes it all...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Over three years after announcing that she would play softball at the University of Louisville, Bullitt East senior Taylor Roby got to make it official recently when she signed all the paperwork during a ceremony in the school’s Media Center.

    Louisville head coach Nancy Pearsall was the first major college coach to offer Roby after the pitcher had attended camps at the college for a number of years. While Roby also heard from Ohio State and Florida State, her heart was always with the Lady Cards.

  • More local KTCCCA runners; tough...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – A couple of weeks ago we had a story on the Kentucky Track and Cross Country Coaches Association Meet of Champions on Oct. 21 at Masterson Station Park in Lexington.

    A few more names have come to us that were left out of the original story.

    Little Flock Christian Academy in northern Bullitt County had a handful of runners take part in the big meet that serves as the unofficial Middle School State Championships as well as having races for younger athletes also.

  • Lady Cougar hoops is a work in...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Rome wasn’t built in a day.

    The same goes for the Bullitt Central Lady Cougar basketball program as they work to become significant again in the highly competitive Louisville area.

    As head coach Josh Cravens enters his second season at the helm, the painful building process is back at square one. You can’t even call it a ‘rebuilding’ job as the Lady Cougars went 6-23 last season.

  • Roby continues to play football...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON—When Luke Roby was four years old, his dad signed amputation papers for his son’s foot. Now, 11 years later, Roby continues to defy the odds as he finished his second year playing football for Bullitt East.

    In May 2006, Roby was playing in the backyard at his grandparent’s house with his older siblings. His grandfather had recently been in a car accident and was still in the hospital. Roby’s dad, Skee, had brought the kids along while he mowed the yard.
