  • Fern Creek beats BE for title

    LOUISVILLE – Nothing went as expected on Thursday for the Bullitt East Lady Chargers as the team dropped a 2-0 decision to Fern Creek in the championship game of the 24th District Softball Tournament.

  • Coach Couch hired for East

        MOUNT WASHINGTON-- On Wednesday afternoon, Bullitt East principal Willie Foster announced that the school had hired Jason Couch as it new head Men's Basketball Coach.

        Couch comes to Bullitt East after a very successful coaching career that has spanned 18 seasons. He has a 348-204 career record with coaching stints at Greenwood, Eastern and Shelby County High Schools.

  • Central’s Amos signs to cheer...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Football or cheerleading.

    Bullitt Central senior Josh Amos will be the first to admit that a few years ago he would have said that he would be playing football in college, but sometimes life gets in the way of those dreams.

    A few injuries took football out of the option and as a senior Amos had started cheering at Bullitt Central, a pretty common occurrence at the school. That opened new doors and Amos stepped through, signing to be a cheerleader at Western Kentucky University.

  • Patience pays off as BE beats...

     LEXINGTON – Patience. Don’t leave home without it.

    Bullitt East coach Jeff Bowles has been through the baseball wars and knows one thing for sure -- patience is a virtue when it comes to big games.

    The coach stood by that mantra on Saturday, sticking with pitcher Troy O’Brien despite the senior giving up five runs in the first two innings. O’Brien would end up pitching for six innings, not giving up another run, giving his offense a chance to rally.

  • BE squares off with Camels in...

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – Most high school sports teams have their banquets after the season is completed.

    Not the Bullitt East Chargers. Not this season.

    Because of the team’s deep run in the post-season, coach Jeff Bowles’ team had its earlier scheduled banquet on Monday of this week. Of course, there was a lot to celebrate as Bullitt East is still alive heading into the final week of the season, playing in the state semi-finals on Friday.

  • Bullitt East rallies to win...

        LEXINGTON – Exploding for four runs in the fifth inning and then adding two more in the sixth, the Bullitt East Chargers rallied from an early hole to beat the Oldham County Colonels 6-3 on Friday in the opening round of the Rawling’s/Kentucky State Baseball Tournament at Whitaker Bank Ballpark.
        The win advanced the Chargers to Saturday’s quarter-finals where they were set to take on Scott County, a 1-0 winner in eight innings over Caldwell County later on Friday.

  • BE’s Sharpe in Kentucky-Indiana...

     LOUISVILLE – Bullitt East senior Tyler Sharpe will go where so many Charger standouts have gone before as he will play this week with the Kentucky All-Stars in the annual series against the Indiana All-Stars.

    It was just three years ago that the Bullitt East duo of Derek Willis and Rusty Troutman played for the Kentucky squad. More than a dozen Bullitt East players have been members of the Kentucky All-Stars on either the boys’ or girls’ side.

  • Junior All-Star games set for...

     LOUISVILLE – North Bullitt girls’ basketball coach David Marion will have an embarrassment of riches on Saturday when he helps coach the Fifth and Sixth Region All-Stars in the annual East-West Junior All-Star game at Bellarmine University’s Knights’ Hall.

  • North saves its best for last

        LOUISVILLE -- It wasn’t a win and nobody in the North Bullitt softball camp was claiming it to be, but there were some smiles and giddiness after the Lady Eagles battled to the end before dropping a 2-0 decision to Fern Creek in the semi-finals of the Sixth Region Tournament at Ulmer Stadium on the University of Louisville campus.

  • Chargers best error-prone North...

        LOUISVILLE -- An unexpectedly strong outing from Bullitt East senior Troy O’Brien on the mound propelled the Chargers to a memorable 6-1 win over North Bullitt on Wednesday in the semi-finals of the Sixth Region Baseball Tournament at Jim Patterson Stadium on the University of Louisville campus.
        This meetings was the latest two Bullitt County baseball teams had ever met in the post-season. In fact, it is the first time a pair of local baseball teams has ever met at the regional level.
