    The one team that battled through the conditions were the Bullitt Central Cougars. They had an early game on Monday with Waggener that started at 6 p.m. so that game got played. The Cougars were then supposed to play Oldham County on Tuesday, but because there was no school in either school system that day, the game was pushed back and played on Wednesday.

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - After winning its first two games in the Lady Panther Winter Classic at Pleasure Ridge Park High School, the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars moved into rarefied air on Saturday for the semi-finals.

  • Bombs Away!: Lady Cougars air it...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Connecting on ten three-pointers, the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars jumped on top early and then cruised past the North Bullitt Lady Eagles 64-40 on Friday.

    What made it hard for North Bullitt to defend was that the Lady Cougars wee getting strong outside shooting from a pair of players. Initially, it was sophomore Keoka Hilliard who bombed in long shots in the first half, making four as Bullitt Central raced out to a 35-15 halftime edge.

  • Chargers get early district jump...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - There really are no make or break games in December for area basketball teams, but the Bullitt East Chargers picked up a big win on Friday as they traveled into Jefferson County and rolled the Southern Trojans 61-46.

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - The Bullitt East Chargers will step back into the big time on Thursday when they open play in the Canfield Development King of the Bluegrass Holiday Tournament at Fairdale High School.

    This will be the second trip in the last four years for the Chargers. The team competed in the 2004 event, going 3-1 and finishing third. That was the same season that coach Troy Barr’s team advanced to the Kentucky State Basketball Tournament by winning the Eighth Region title.

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - The 2007-08 Girls’ Kentucky State Basketball Champion Butler Bearettes visited Bullitt East on Wednesday and coach Eddy Wilson’s team showed that they will be a force again as they manhandled the Lady Chargers 63-47 in the first big game in the Sixth Region this season.

    HEBRON ESTATES - It wasn’t pretty, but the North Bullitt Lady Eagles picked up an important 24th District win on Tuesday as they pulled away from visiting Southern over the final three minutes to secure a 52-41 victory.

    In fact, the green and gold trailed by a point midway through the fourth quarter before rallying for their second win of the season.

    “It was pretty sloppy,” North Bullitt head coach Bill Robinette said of a game in which his team turned the ball over 37 times. “We were fortunate.

  • Lady Chargers ready to make a...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - By the end of February, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers have big plans of competing with state powers Iroquois and Butler.

    However, at the end of November, long-time head coach Chris Stallings is just hoping to get enough players healthy for a competitive intra-squad scrimmage.

    While the Lady Chargers have certainly not lost sight of the big picture, they have been slowed somewhat at the start of this season by a rash of injuries and illnesses.
