  • Cougars pick up seventh win;...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - It has been a struggle at times this season for the Bullitt Central Cougars, but the team has already scraped together three more wins than all of last season with a month still remaining in the regular season.

  • Chargers stay hot in beating...

    TAYLORSVILLE - Playing for the fourth time in six days, the Bullitt East Chargers went into one of the most hostile environments and came away with a win on Saturday as they beat Spencer County 80-63.

    For many years, Bullitt East made the short trip to Taylorsville at least once every season when the two rivals were both in the old 29th District. That changed five years ago and now the teams meet only once each season, rotating home games.

    This contest was originally set for Jan. 9, but was postponed because of snow.

  • Bullitt East starts wrestling...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - Bullitt County’s newest high school athletic program will take to the mats tonight when Bullitt East competes in a wrestling match for the first time.

        That meet will happen at North Oldham High School starting at 6:30 p.m. and will also include competition from Central Hardin and DeSales.

  • Lee's big regional propels...

        HEBRON ESTATES - A pair of top-five finishes by North Bullitt junior Caroline Lee highlighted a strong showing by the young Bullitt County swimming program.

        The top finishes by Lee qualified her for this week’s Kentucky State Swimming and Diving Championships where she will once again compete at the Ralph Wright Natatorium on the University of Louisville campus.

  • Chargers take no prisoners in...

        HEBRON ESTATES - There was no joy in the Eagles’ Nest on Friday as arch-rival Bullitt East swooped in and stole a pair of lopsided victories.

        This was the first of two meetings this season between the county rivals. Because of a format change, these two games did not count toward the 24th District seeding standings. That will all change when the two schools meet again on Feb. 12 in Mount Washington.

  • Bullitt East squad has plenty to...

        NASHVILLE - When the Bullitt East cheerleading team went to Nashville, Tenn., to compete in the World Cheerleading Association Nationals competition on Dec. 27, the girls took little with them besides their bags, their coaches, their families and friends.

        When they returned to Mount Washington two days later, they brought home a title.

  • Chargers stay hot; NB not hot in...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - When Bullitt East head coach Troy Barr changed up his offensive scheme back over the summer, he credited the new look to what the North Oldham Mustangs were doing.

        Well North Oldham got an up-close look at that offense on Tuesday as Bullitt East used it for a huge second half rally to beat the Mustangs 69-65 on the road.

        The win was the fifth in a row for the Chargers since losing in the Louisville Invitational Tournament.

  • District seeding games to get...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - Very little has been decided heading into the final month of the regular season as it pertains to the seeding for the upcoming 24th District basketball tournaments.

        That will all change this week as all five programs will be in action against each other either on Tuesday or Friday.

  • Chargers put the LIT behind them...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - Coming off the emotional one-point loss to Pleasure Ridge Park in the Louisville Invitational Tournament, the Bullitt East Chargers had almost an entire week in the middle of the season to re-energize their batteries.

        The time was obviously put the good use as the red and gold returned to the court last week and picked up a pair of wins in a 24-hour period.
