  • Butler next for East

        LOUISVILLE - After beating Valley on Monday, the Bullitt East Chargers will return to Sixth Region play on Friday at 5 p.m. when they take on the Butler Bears in the semi-finals.

        Butler moved into the date with Bullitt East by outlasting Shawnee 84-76 in three overtimes on Monday.

        Bullitt East (22-7) defeated Butler 62-58 on the road back on Dec. 8, but Bullitt East head coach Troy Barr knows that both teams are a lot different now than at the beginning of the season.

  • Holy Cross on Thursday

        LOUISVILLE - After dispatching Iroquois on Tuesday, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers will return to the court on Thursday to take on Holy Cross in the semi-finals of the Sixth Region Tournament.

        The venue will change as the final two rounds will be played at Bellarmine University.

  • BE women best North

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - There is girls’ basketball and then there is women’s basketball.

    Fans on Friday night actually got to see both for one admission as the Bullitt East Lady Chargers rolled past North Bullitt 84-33.

    The outcome was not much different than three weeks earlier when Bullitt East won at North Bullitt 69-22.

  • Chargers overpower Eagles 73-49

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - A quick start by North Bullitt kept the game close for 16 minutes, but the Bullitt East Chargers controlled the second half, rolling to a 73-49 victory on Friday over their county rivals.

    It was the second win for the Chargers over the Eagles in just three weeks. Bullitt East had won the first meeting 82-37, but head coach Troy Barr knew that North Bullitt was without two of its top players.

    Adding fuel to the fire was a move by North Bullitt head coach Lee Barger to slow the pace of the game.

  • Short final week is mixed bag...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - The final week of the regular season for area basketball teams started with snow, but then ended with a flurry of action before coming to a close on Friday.

        The post-season will start on Monday with 24th District action at Southern.

        The busiest team down the stretch was the Bullitt East Chargers. While just about every other team in the area was on the sideline on Tuesday, the red and gold managed to get Elizabethtown to Mount Washington for a game despite there not being school that day.

  • Four Bullitt wrestles qualify...

    LOUISVILLE - The first-year Bullitt East wrestling program had a solid opening trip to a regional tournament on Saturday as a pair of wrestles qualified for this week’s State Championships in Frankfort.

    Bullitt Central’s program also advanced a pair of wrestlers to the final round of the season.

    Bullitt East junior Justin Smith reached the semi-finals before losing in the 189-pound class. He eventually finished fourth to make the state meet.

  • Local swimmers improve at...

    LOUISVILLE - Bullitt County’s young and improving swimming program turned in some strong finishes at the Region II Championships on Feb. 4-5 at the Ralph Wright Natatorium on the University of Louisville campus.

    That is also the location where the three programs practice three times a week under the direction of coach Laura Flischel.

  • Area teams head to Southern H.S...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - The biggest week of the high school sports season will kick-off Monday as post-season basketball play in the 24th District Tournament kicks-off at Southern High School.

        This will be the first time that the Bullitt County teams have played post-season basketball at Southern. This will complete the five-year rotation since the realignment with each of the five schools now having hosted once.

  • Lady Chargers have all the...

    LOUISVILLE - The final tune-up before post-season play starts on Monday was a golden performance for the Bullitt East Lady Chargers as they rolled past 18th-ranked Sacred Heart 50-38 on Friday night.

    The win avenged a 35-28 loss to the Valkyries back on Jan. 27 in the Louisville Invitational Tournament. This time, Bullitt East surpassed 28 points with the first basket of the second half and never looked back.

  • North Bullitt Homecoming:...

        HEBRON ESTATES - Probably the only ones happier for the North Bullitt hoops victory on Saturday than the coaching staff were the wives of the coaches.

        In a sign of solidarity, the North Bullitt coaches refused to shave the past couple of weeks until a victory was secured.

        On Saturday evening, the coaches helped clean up the gym and probably went immediately home to remove the facial hair after a 54-36 win over Washington County.
