  • Lady Cougars get a good ‘preview...

     HODGENVILLE – Just call last week’s trip for the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars to LaRue County to participate in the R.E. Williams Holiday Classic a preview to some upcoming games.

    Bullitt Central won its opening game in the eight-team event, beating Logan County 49-46. The team then seemed on the verge of reaching the championship game when they led LaRue County late before the Lady Hawks rallied to win 42-41.

  • Chargers get the best of...

     BUCKNER – In this new computer age, coaches now rarely use the word ‘rebuilding.’ Instead, the new word is a ‘reboot.’

    Well for the Bullitt East Chargers, last week’s championship game in the Pegasus Sports Network Best in Hoops Tournament at Oldham County was a reboot of a reboot.

  • Bullitt Central heads to break...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After starting the season with just one win in six outings, including the fact that four of the five losses were by at least 18 points, it might have seemed a long shot for the Bullitt Central Cougars to reach four wins by the end of the season.

    Don’t fret Cougar fans. Bullitt Central won three games in three days before taking a week off for Christmas. Coach Jessie Curry’s team is now 4-5 and preparing for a trip to Allen County-Scottsville this week for the programs’ only holiday tournament appearance.

  • Hebron wins first ‘A’ title

     BERNHEIM – It was Toney Time on Thursday in the championship game of the 2016 Boys’ Bullitt County Middle School Basketball Tourney ‘A’ Division.

    After Eastside had scored the final five points of the fourth quarter within the final 15 seconds, Hebron turned the game over to T.J. Toney in the extra frame.

    The athletic Toney scored nine of his game-high 30 points in the three-minute overtime period and Hebron won what is believed to be its first ‘A’ Division basketball title ever with a 61-56 victory.

  • Eastside grabs ‘B’ division...

     BERNHEIM – Holding Hebron scoreless in the third quarter, the Eastside Eagles pulled away from a 25-18 halftime advantage to beat the Panthers 55-28 in the championship game of the 2016 ‘B’ Division of the Bullitt County Middle School Basketball Tournament.

    The contest capped the six-team post-season tournament for the area middle schools. The tournament this year was played at Bernheim Middle School.

  • East gets impressive win over...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – For just over half a game this season, first-year Bullitt East head coach Jason Couch has had his full complement of players.

    First, senior Konnor Polson and Derrick Donigan were out. When they both returned for the Pleasure Ridge Park game last Tuesday, the Chargers were at full strength right up until the time that senior Conner Green went down with a sprained ankle.

  • Lady Eagles win, but Eagles fall...

     HEBRON ESTATES -- Seconds into Friday night’s basketball game against Holy Cross, North Bullitt head coach David Marion felt it would be one of those nights.

    Yes, his Lady Eagles defeated Holy Cross 63-43.

    But, it was far from the performance Marion wants out of his team.

    “”We didn’t focus,” said Marion. “We weren’t intense.”

    No matter the combination, Marion was not pleased with his team’s performance.

  • Bullitt East wins third straight...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON  -- For the third year in a row,  the Bullitt East cheerleaders have traveled to the Kentucky Horse Park Alltech Arena and each of those trips have resulted in a state championship.

    By the narrowest of margins, the Bullitt East cheerleaders won the All-Girls Super team division.

    “It speaks volumes about our program, as we work extremely hard and put in many hours of practice on top of cheering games, while maintaining grades to remain eligible,” head coach Jeff Schaber said of winning the third straight state title.

  • Bullitt Central again finishes...

     LEXINGTON – Since winning the Kentucky Co-Ed State Cheerleading Championship in 2013, the Bullitt Central program has been locked in a battle with Graves County for the top spot on the podium in what has now become the Large Co-Ed Division.

  • East’s ‘full’ team wins first...

     SHIVELY – Playing with a full deck for the first time this season, the Bullitt East Chargers picked up a huge win on Tuesday as they defeated Pleasure Ridge Park 66-62.

    Amazingly, while the two powerful Sixth Region programs have met numerous times in the Louisville Invitational Tournament and the Sixth Region Tournament, this was the first time Bullitt East had ever traveled to Pleasure Ridge Park for a basketball game.
