  • 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.

  • East, North broadsided by...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - In one of the strangest, and most unexpected, moves handed down by the Kentucky High School Athletic Association (KHSAA), Bullitt East and North Bullitt suddenly find themselves sitting in a six-team football district for next season.

    The news came in an email early last week from Julian Tackett of the KHSAA office announcing that because of the new high school in Shelby County, Martha Layne Collins High School, that both of the schools in Shelbyville will immediately move to Class 4-A.

  • Lady Eagles struggle with a...

    HEBRON ESTATES - Too many games in too many days caught up with the North Bullitt Lady Eagles before Christmas as they tried to squeeze the South Oldham Lady Dragon Hoopfest Tournament around a key game against Bullitt Central.

    First-year North Bullitt head coach Amber Courtney has already said she won’t try that again.

    The Lady Dragon tournament games were played on Thursday, Saturday and Monday before Christmas. North Bullitt then filled in that Friday with the emotional game against Bullitt Central.

  • Chargers stay red hot in winning...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - If it was possible, the Bullitt East Chargers got even hotter just before the Christmas break as they won three games and the title in the Rafferty’s Caveland Classic at Edmonson County High School.

    The three victories moved the young Chargers to 9-1 for the season, an impressive record for a team with just two seniors and basically no returning starters from a year ago. The wins pushed the teams winning streak to nine games after they opened the season with a loss at Franklin County.

  • Spencer steals title in Barger...

    HEBRON ESTATES - Three games in three days offered Lee Barger and Joe Pat Lee a perfect opportunity to see where their respective teams were at near the mid-way point in the season.

    And after completing the inaugural Sarah Major Barger Memorial Tournament at North Bullitt, both had reasons to smile.

    North Bullitt finished second

    In the eight-team tournament, the host Eagles won its first two games before falling to Spencer County 71-55 in the championship game Wednesday night.

  • Lady Cougars come up just short

    LOUISVILLE - Bullitt Central Lady Cougar head coach Bryan Bates saw a little bit of everything from his team last week in the Doss Lady Dragon Holiday Classic.

    There was the good, the bad and the ugly, as well as some beauty as the maroon and gray reached the championship game before falling to Breckinridge County 45-42.

    The Lady Cougars had the ball at the end of the game, but could not get off a shot in the last 13 seconds.

  • Two OTs, two wins for East; Lady...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - Two games, two overtimes, two victories made for a wild and wonderful weekend for the Bullitt East Chargers as the youthful team continued to make great strides early in the season.

    On Friday, coach Troy Barr’s team picked up the only victory that really counts in December as they turned back Southern 65-63 in overtime. The Southern game is the only one this month that will be used in the standings that will decided the district seeding for the post-season tournament in late February.

  • Aubrey’s career night...

    HEBRON ESTATES - A week after the team’s three senior starters combined for 65 points in a loss to Fairdale, North Bullitt’s high-scoring trio put 53 points on the board on Friday in an easier than expected 74-57 victory at home over arch-rival Bullitt Central.

    Leading the way for the Eagles was senior wing player Kenton Aubrey who had the best game of his career with a game-high 30 points. The Eagles also got 14 points from senior James Whitfill and nine points from Travis Ridley.

    Junior Tony Majors added to the offense with 10 points.

  • Cold shooting continues to...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - The Bullitt Central Cougars continued to try and find their offense on Tuesday, but it wasn’t to be as the Cougars dropped a key 24th District contest to Southern 57-45.

    The maroon and gray did a lot of good things against the Trojans, but scoring was not one of those things. Bullitt Central made just 17 of 54 shots while converting just half of their 12 shots at the free throw line.

    “That won’t win many games,” Cougar head coach Joe Pat Lee lamented after the game.
