  • Fast start is more than enough...

    HEBRON ESTATES - Showing signs of being the team they thought they could be when the season began, the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars raced out to an early advantage and were never challenged on Friday against arch-rival North Bullitt.

    Bullitt Central won 77-41 for its second straight victory after losing three in a row.

  • OT works just fine for Lady...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - It took an overtime to do it, but the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars finally picked up the one win they had to have in December as they slipped past visiting Southern 64-56 on Tuesday.

    The Lady Trojans are a vastly improved team over the past few seasons and they also much more athletic. They gave Bullitt Central fits at times on Tuesday and actually had a chance to win at the end of regulation time only to have a lane violation erase a made free throw with :12.3 to play.

  • Ridley’s 33 not enough...

    HEBRON ESTATES - The North Bullitt Eagles got 65 points from three seniors, but it wasn’t enough on Friday as Fairdale picked up a key 24th District victory with a 79-71 decision over the green and gold.

    It was a sterling effort for the Eagles, especially in the fourth quarter as they scored 30 points and cut a double-digit margin down to six points with three minutes to play.

  • Locals part of Coaches&rsquo...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Some local players and coaches will be back on the football field this Saturday for the Greater Louisville Football Coaches’ Association East-West All-Star game at Southern High School starting at 2 p.m.

    Bullitt Central’s coaching staff will be heading up the West team. Head coach Danny Leasor is taking part in the organization of the team, but he has to leave before the game and Cougar Associate Head Coach Mike Gossett will run the show.

  • Bumpy starts continue for Cougar...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - When the season began, Bullitt Central boys’ head coach Joe Pat Lee knew one thing for certain about his team - that when they shot well they could be highly competitive and that when they didn’t shoot it consistently that there would be some long nights.

  • Jones takes over BC wrestling...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - It will be a new phase for the Bullitt Central wrestling program this fall as David Jones takes over the program, becoming the third Cougar coach for the program.

    Bullitt Central has had recent success in wrestling including a third-place finish in the state tournament last year by senior Jeremiah Walls, his second third-place finish in as many years, and a sixth-place award for senior Akeem Bennett.

  • Up at halftime, Lady Eagles...

    HEBRON ESTATES - Scoring the last nine points of the first half, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles put themselves in position for a huge win over Fairdale in the 24th District race.

    Unfortunately, that was the highlight of the evening for the green and gold. The young Lady Eagles lost their way offensively in the second half, scoring just seven points against the Lady Bulldogs and lost 44-32.

  • Football play-offs proving how...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - A high school or college football coach always walks that fine line when making out a schedule for his team.

    On one hand, you want to prepare your team as best you can and you can only do that by challenging your players in the games. Big wins over good opponents give your players confidence that they can do it again.

    On the other hand, you don’t want to over schedule and wreck your teams’ confidence with debilitating losses. Or worse, collect mounting injuries that hamper your team against opponents they should be competitive with.

  • Offensive problems haunt Lady...

    LOUISVILLE - Heading into her first season as a head coach, North Bullitt Lady Eagle mentor Amber Courtney had a lot of concerns.

    That happens when two of your top seven players are eighth-graders and there are only three upperclassmen in the whole program and one of them is playing for the first season.

    Still, Courtney’s top worry at the start of the season was finding ways for her team to put the ball in the basket. That problem was obvious on Tuesday as the Lady Eagles went into Louisville and were dominated by Sixth Region rival Presentation 62-36.

  • North set to host 8-team Barger...

    HEBRON ESTATES - For the first time in a number of years, the North Bullitt boys’ basketball program will host a holiday basketball tournament.

    The 8-team Sarah Major Barger Memorial Tournament will be played over three days starting on Monday. The tournament named in honor of the mother of North Bullitt boys’ head coach Lee Barger. Proceeds from the event will go to help fund the Sarah Barger Scholarship Fund which presents a $1,000 grant to a senior male and female athlete at North Bullitt each spring.
