  • Bullitt Co. H.S. swim program...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Three practice as one and one competes as three if you are a member of the Bullitt County high school swimming program.

    For the fourth straight season, the three Bullitt County high schools have combined resources to be able to field swimming teams. The coach is once again Laura Flischel who started the program.

  • Bowles becomes second BE player...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - A win-win situation. You can’t beat that.

    That is what the Bowles family was saying recently when Bullitt East senior baseball standout Matt Bowles signed a national junior college letter-of-intent with John A. Logan college in Illinois.

    In addition, it was a perfect father-coach-son day for the family as Bullitt East baseball coach Jeff Bowles looked on as his son signed on the dotted line.

  • BE runs the table in Sixth Region

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - A slow start put the Bullitt East Lady Chargers behind the eight ball, but three strong quarters down the stretch left the red and gold as the only undefeated team in the Sixth Region this season after they beat Holy Cross 62-52.

        Bullitt East moved to 11-0 against regional foes this season and is the top-rated team in the computer rankings. Holy Cross, which had been undefeated against the rest of the region (they have not played Butler this season), dropped to 10-1.

  • Charger girls speed away in...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - No opposing coach knows the Bullitt East Lady Chargers better than veteran Bullitt Central mentor Bryan Bates.

        Bates knows one thing for sure - the Lady Chargers are a very good basketball team.

        That is why with a week between games for his team, Bates opted to try something a little different in Friday’s second meeting of the season between the two local rivals. Instead of trying to play at the pace that both teams probably prefer - uptempo - Bates opted to slow the game down - way down.

  • Late miscue costly to NB girls...

    LOUISVILLE - Participating in homecoming festivities at Whitefield Academy, North Bullitt led most of the way.

    With 10 seconds remaining and the score tied, Courtney said a missed defensive assignment led to a winning basket by the home team.

    “We’re playing much better basketball,” said Courtney. “We’ve improved tremendously.”

    On Friday, Courtney said the Lady Eagles held a 6-8 point lead throughout much of the contest. However, she said the inexperience led to a couple of key mistakes.

  • Washburn’s power is...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - Two months ago it took an overtime period for the Bullitt East Chargers to pull out a 68-58 victory over Bullitt Central in the first meeting of the season between the bitter rivals in Shepherdsville.

  • Persistence pays off for BE...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - Persistence paid off in a big way for Bullitt East senior Ryan Kahl last week as he signed a national letter of intent to play baseball at St. Catharine College in Springfield, Kentucky.

        Kahl will join former Bullitt East second baseball Jimmy Hoffman who is a freshman at the school now.

  • Foul! Chargers falter late at...

        FAIRDALE - A first half of hope turned into a second half of frustration on Tuesday for the Bullitt East Chargers in their showdown with district rival Fairdale.

        Bullitt East played a strong first half, pushing the margin to 10 points and then leading 28-20 at halftime. That lead evaporated in the third quarter and after freshman Trey Rakes tied the game at 51-51 with 4:50 remaining in the game, Fairdale closed with a 12-5 run to win 63-56.

  • No Thacker. No Problem. East...

        FAIRDALE - No Kayla Thacker was no problem for the Bullitt East Lady Chargers on Tuesday as the red and gold rolled on the road to a 48-32 victory over Fairdale, taking a stranglehold on the top spot in the 24th District seeding race.

  • Southern gets the best from...

        HEBRON ESTATES - For the first time since the two schools both became members of the 24th District, Southern pulled a sweep on Tuesday, taking both games in a girl/boy doubleheader.

        Despite playing at home, it was slow starts in both games that proved to be too difficult for the Eagle teams to overcome.

        First, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles fell behind 19-9 in the first quarter and trailed 35-20 halftime. Not even a 29-point fourth quarter could rally the Lady Eagles as Southern won 71-62.
