  • Lady Cougars win, but BC, NB...

        LOUISVILLE - With their shooting eye slowly returning, the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars are quickly gaining momentum after struggling through the games around the first of the year.

        Another sign of the increased confidence came on Tuesday as the maroon and gray traveled into Louisville and beat Seneca (6-10) 54-43. The key was better shooting and also holding the Redhawks’ Portia Durrett to 18 points, four below her average this season.

  • Lady Chargers have no trouble...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - Over the previous four seasons, since Bullitt East joined the Sixth Region, the games between the Lady Chargers and Iroquois have been some of the most anticipated games of the regular season.

        Not this year.

  • Defense is stout as Lady...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - The start of a busy week turned out to be no problem for the Bullitt East Lady Chargers as they rolled past both Presentation and Spencer County on Tuesday and Wednesday of last week.

        The two games were the first of four games in five days that Bullitt East was to play last week. The busy schedule got busier when the Spencer County game was added on Wednesday after being snowed out the week before. The good news was that the contest was shifted to Mount Washington, giving the Lady Chargers a seventh home game this winter.

  • Eastside overcomes Bobcats...

    BERNHEIM -- Steady and strong got the best of spectacular on Thursday night in the ‘A’ Division Championship game of the Bullitt County Middle School Basketball Tournament at Bernheim Middle School.

    The Eastside Eagles, under the direction of head coach Jerry Troutman, did just about everything right, except making free throws, as they turned back the Bullitt Lick Bobcats 51-37 for the program’s second straight title.

  • 'B' final turns into a...

    BERNHEIM -- With 90 seconds remaining in Thursday’s ‘B’ Division Championship of the Bullitt County Middle School Tournament, the Mount Washington Generals trailed the Eastside Eagles 38-28.

    Considering that Eastside had just reeled off the last 17 points of the game, the view was not very pleasant for the Generals.

  • Lady Chargers drop two in big...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - Yes Virginia, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers did make it home for Christmas in 2009. They just didn’t stay home very long over the holidays.

    Playing in two of the top girls’ tournaments in the state, the Lady Chargers posted a 6-2 record playing in the Republic Bank Holiday Classic at Lexington Catholic and then the Culver’s Lady Gator Holiday Classic in Bowling Green. The red and gold lost one game in each of the two events.

  • East starts LIT play Tuesday

    LOUISVILLE - The revamped Boys’ Louisville Invitational Tournament will start tonight with a new format and only one team from outside of Jefferson County - the Bullitt East Chargers.

    This will be the fourth trip to the LIT for the Chargers, but the first time that they will be there on equal footing with all the other teams. The three previous trips all had Bullitt East as one of the four ‘invited’ teams.

    This is the first season in which the Chargers became part of the pool of teams eligible for the tournament from the Sixth and Seventh Regions.

  • Athletic teams get the best of BE

    SHELBYVILLE - The Bullitt East Chargers have already proven this year that they can compete against teams with better athletic talent.

    They did that on the second weekend of the regular season when they stunned visiting Shelby County in overtime to win 85-79. They did that by playing hard for almost every second of a 32-minute game.

  • Cougars struggle on Lexington...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Bullitt Central’s shooting woes continued last week as the team spent three days in Lexington taking part in the Sayre Holiday Classic, a 4-team round-robin event that was eventually won by the host team.

    As has been the case in recent weeks, the Cougars struggled to find the range shooting the ball. The tournament started with the maroon and gray connecting on 20 percent of its shots, then 25 percent in the second game before the team did connect on 37 percent of its shots.

  • Lady Eagles come up short...

    HEBRON ESTATES - Amber Courtney knows that rebuilding the North Bullitt Lady Eagle basketball program will be a gradual process.

    With only two seniors and one junior on the roster, Courtney is prepared for a few potholes in the rebuilding path.

    But after playing seven games in a 10-day period, Courtney is seeing some positive signs in her young Eagles.

    That optimism comes after the team had just lost all three games it played in its own First Citizens Bank Classic.
