  • Outback 5th/6th Region showcase...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt County girls did it two weeks ago and this Saturday it will be the boys turn to showcase local basketball as all three of the area programs will converge on Bullitt East for the Outback Steakhouse 5th/6th Challenge.

    The first-year event is the brain child of Bullitt East head coach Troy Barr to highlight local basketball.

    Fans can see all three of the local teams for one admission price against three teams from the Fifth Region. Actually, this year, the three opponents are from Hardin County.

     

  • NB-BC play round two, but not...

    HODGENVILLE - Any port in a storm.

    That is the way that both North Bullitt and Bullitt Central looked at Tuesday's meeting in the seventh-place game of the National Guard Holiday Classic at LaRue County High School.

    Each of the local teams is struggling mightily this season and the outcomes from the first two days of the eight-team tournament had not improved their outlook. Each team had just one win this season coming into the contest.

  • Southern stuns Chargers; Lady...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - With a chance to take a huge step toward the top seed in the 24th District Tournament, the Bullitt East Chargers instead put themselves in a dangerous hole on Tuesday when they lost a 65-60 decision to Southern.

    Coach Troy Barr's team was the only undefeated team remaining in the boys' bracket and the Chargers had already beaten the Trojans 61-46 less than a month earlier in Jefferson County.

  • Seneca pulls away late to upset...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - The Bullitt Central Lady Cougars were flying high coming off a championship in their second holiday tournament, the Lady Wolverine Classic in Frankfort, but since returning home, life has become complicated for coach Bryan Bates’ team.

    First, there was a 52-46 loss to Ballard in the Bullitt County Challenge and on Tuesday it got more frustrating as the Lady Cougars were knocked off at home by Seneca 57-42.

  • Player of the Year

    Bullitt Central junior Jeremy Bennett was presented his award as the 2008 Bullitt County Player of the Year before a recent basketball game.

    With Bennett were Cougar head coach Danny Leasor along with Arch L. Heady and Son representatives Tim Gonterman and Sue Sullivan.

    The award was also sponsored by the Awards Center and the Pioneer News.

  • Eagles in LIT Tuesday

    HEBRON ESTATES - The North Bullitt Eagles will get their shot at playing in the Louisville Invitational Tournament this week when they take on Trinity at 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday at Bellarmine University’s Knights’ Hall.

  • Lady Cougars win holiday...

    FRANKFORT - The Bullitt Central Lady Cougars have often wanted to run and gun under head coach Bryan Bates.

    Now, this season, the Lady Cougars are running and gunning and more importantly, winning

    Bullitt Central picked up its most impressive tournament title in a number of years on Wednesday, when the maroon and gray capped a strong three day run with a 53-41 victory over an Australian International Team in the championship game of the Lady Wolverine Holiday Classic at Western Hills High School in Frankfort.

  • Another tourney and East again...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - For the second time in as many weeks, the Bullitt East Chargers went on the road for a holiday tournament and returned home with a 2-2 record in 16-team events.

    The most recent was the Lloyd Memorial Invitational in northern Kentucky. The tournament started less than a week after the red and gold finished as the runners-up in the consolation bracket of the Canfield Development King of the Bluegrass Holiday Tournament at Fairdale.

  • Lady Eagles continue to improve...

    LOUISVILLE - When the season began, not a lot was expected of the North Bullitt Lady Eagles.

    Now, a month into the season, the green and gold have a 5-5 record and a third-place trophy from the Lady Dragons' Holiday Invitational at Doss High School. In fact, if the Lady Eagles had shot free throws a little better, they might have gotten a bigger trophy out of the eight-team event.

    Still, head coach Bill Robinette is pleased with the team’s performance so far as well as the improvement they have made.
