  • Hard work allows Miller to lasso...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON-- Years of hard work have resulted in one Bullitt East student roping a college scholarship in a unique sport.

    For the first time ever, a Bullitt East High student has been awarded a rodeo scholarship.

    Blaine Miller has been riding horses since before he could walk.

    “I used to sit him on the saddle with me while I warmed up and, right before I went out, I’d hand him back to his mom,” said Rick Miller, Blaine’s father and retired-rodeo competitor.

  • Eastside to represent U.S. in...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON — If cheerleaders cheer for their team, then who cheers for the cheerleaders?

    At Eastside Middle, it’s the entire school.

    What started off as a normal Tuesday for students at Eastside ended in an auditorium chanting “USA” after it was announced that the Eastside cheerleaders will represent the United States as the junior cheerleading team in the upcoming Olympic-based World Championship competition.

  • East girls headed back to state...

     LOUISVILLE – Who needs the regular season?

    Certainly not the Bullitt East Lady Charger bowling team. With four seniors returning this season from a squad that reached the state tournament a year ago, head coach Ricky Hoffman expected a strong team from start to finish. It didn’t happen as the team struggled early in the season.

  • NB’s Grant second in boys’...

     LOUISVILLE – They say it is always darkest before the dawn.

    North Bullitt senior bowler Errik Grant will always believe that.

    Three frames into last week’s Region 3 Boys’ Tournament semi-finals of qualifying at Ken Bowl Lanes, Grant was so frustrated with his play that he turned to head coach Emily Knight and announced that his chance of improving his score to the top four and advancing to not only the step ladder portion of the event, but also of earning a bid to the state tournament, was completely out of reach.

  • BE has the numbers to repeat as...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Bullitt East had the manpower, as well as the womanpower, to repeat as the Bullitt Cup Wrestling Champions on Wednesday at Bullitt Central in the annual tri-match between the county’s three wrestling programs.

  • A Very Special Homecoming Night

     The Bullitt Central student body showed its love for Morgan Baggett on Friday as she was selected as homecoming queen.

    Baggett, who has Down Syndrome, was representing the Best Buddies program at the school.

    She was accompanied by Gage Niedert, son of Karen Niedert.

    Tristin Logsdon, son of Kristina and Rob Logsdon, was selected as the Homecoming King.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

  • On Target

     At the recent Bullitt East Archery Tournament, it was three schools from the Shepherdsville area that won the team titles.

    In the elementary division, it was Cedar Grove that came home with the first place trophy after posting a score of 2947.

    It was Bernheim that won the middle school title at the Jan. 14 event with a final score of 3206. Bernheim’s Sara Macarthy was the top individual with a score of 286.

  • Duvall becomes top scorer in...

     LOUISVILLE -- Late in Friday’s game against Central, Bullitt East senior Lindsey Duvall became the leading scorer in Lady Charger history with a short jumper in the lane.

    A member of the Bullitt East program since she was a seventh-grader, Duvall missed all but seven games of her junior season, but still easily managed to get the mark. In fact, Duvall is the seventh leading scorer in the state this season at 24.5 points a contest for the 15-4 Lady Chargers.

  • Bullitt County PE educators...

     The Kentucky Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance (KAPHERD) presented awards to several Bullitt County educators during its 2016 fall convention in Lexington.

    Former Maryville Elementary School teacher Dennis Minnis was named 2016-2017 Kentucky Elementary School PE Teacher of the Year.

  • Late games preparing teams for...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – With less than two weeks remaining in the regular season, local basketball teams might be thinking more about the upcoming post-season but there were still numerous games this past weekend.

    First and foremost, North Bullitt closed out regular season district play with a set of games at Moore High School. The Lady Eagles picked up a win and secured the number one seed for the district tourney, but the boys fell hard to the Mustangs and will now have the number three seed before Moore and Southern.
