  • Charger All-Stars finish second...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - You take three competitive youth football programs and combine them into one squad.

    You take them into other areas for competition against new teams.

    What do you have?

    A very good football team of 8-year-olds.

    When they reach high school, all of the football players will be at Bullitt East. But as members of the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League, they compete for the Old Mill Bengals, the Mount Washington Colts and the Pleasant Grove Dolphins.

  • OT Thriller - East pulls away...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Scoring the first 12 points of the overtime period, the Bullitt East Chargers pulled away from what had been hotly contested game with arch-rival Bullitt Central on Friday.

    In a game matching two of the youngest teams either program has ever put on the floor, the hearts and minds were putting forth great effort while the execution and performance was more what you would expect from a game that at times had more freshmen and sophomores on the floor than juniors and seniors.

  • Wins were minimal, but Eagles...

    HEBRON ESTATES - It wasn’t the worst of times for the North Bullitt football program in 2009, but it could have been a better.

    The expectations were not high for this group and head coach Brett Newton said when the season began that he just wanted to see improvement each week for him to be a happy camper. Midway through the season the coach was happy, but then things began to stagnate.

  • Quick Start - 47 first half...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Exploding for 47 points in the first half, the Bullitt Central Cougars opened the 2009-10 season with a bang on Monday as they rolled past visiting Evangel 77-62.

    Bullitt Central led 22-16 after the first quarter and with the first ten points of the second frame took control of the opening game of the season for both teams. The maroon and gray led by 15 points at halftime and by as many as 16 in the second half. Evangel made a late surge to get within nine points late in the game, but they could get no closer.

  • Lady Eagles set to start a new...

    HEBRON ESTATES - All veteran basketball coaches have their ‘best of times; worst of times’ stories. It comes with the territory.

    For first-year North Bullitt Lady Eagle coach Amber Courtney, she might well start out filling the ‘worst of times’ category first.

    The former Bullitt Central player (Amber Coy) inherits a program almost void of upperclassman. In fact, the Lady Eagles won’t just count on middle school age girls, but they will start eighth-graders this season. The varsity roster even includes a seventh-grader and a sixth-grader.

  • Cougars will be bombs away with...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - On a varsity high school basketball team with only two seniors and one junior, fans might be worried about a lack of experience at the start of the season.

    Not the case with the Bullitt Central Cougars. Veteran head coach Joe Pat Lee has a lot of worries heading into the 2009-10 season, but his team does have quite a bit of experience.

  • Defense powers Lady Chargers...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - On a night when the offense struggled mightily, both from the field and at the foul line, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers let their defense do the talking in a 58-33 victory over visiting Pleasure Ridge Park on Tuesday in the first game of the 2009-10 season.

    The Lady Chargers allowed just five points in the first quarter and the red and gold led 27-14 at halftime before coasting to the easy victory.

  • Lady Chargers set to be among...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - While high expectations are nothing new for the Bullitt East Lady Chargers, only a handful of times over the past 30 years have they been as high as this season.

    Already, the team has been ranked as high as tenth in the state in a recent coaches’ poll. Led by senior guard Kayla Thacker, the 13th ranked player in the state, the Lady Chargers are favorites to capture their first-ever Sixth Region title and advance to the State Tournament for the third time in the program’s history.

  • Chargers seek to mold the old...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - On a team with nine of the top 12 players from a year ago needing to be replaced, most coaches would enter this season with at least a somewhat cautious tone.

    Not veteran Bullitt East head coach Troy Barr as he enters his eighth year leading the Chargers. Barr feels that his team can return to the district championship game and the regional tournament, after missing out on those big events last season.
