  • Late rally gives the Lady Eagles...

    CARROLLTON - You can take the North Bullitt Lady Eagles out of the Eighth Region, but you can’t take the Eighth Region out of the Lady Eagles.

    When veteran North Bullitt head coach Bill Robinette went looking for a holiday tournament for his team this season, he found one with a lot of familiar faces when he entered the North American Stainless Basketball Classic at Carroll County High School. Five of the eight teams in the event are former Eighth Region foes before North Bullitt was shifted to the Sixth Region three years ago.

  • Eastside holds off Zoneton'...

    PLEASANT GROVE - A late rally made it close, but the Eastside Eagles won the school’s first Middle School ‘A’ Division Basketball Championship on Friday with a 45-41 victory over Zoneton.

    The victory completed a sweep for the eighth-graders at Eastside as they won the title each of their three seasons as teammates, taking the two previous ‘B’ titles before securing the ‘A’ title this season.

    Eastside finished the season with an 18-4 mark.

  • First Bullitt County Challenge...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - Local basketball fans can get a look at all three Bullitt County girls’ basketball teams in one sitting on Saturday in the first Bullitt County Challenge event.

    So-called ‘showcase’ events have become popular throughout Kentucky over the past few years. In these events, teams get together and play one game in a non-tournament format. Bullitt East will play in three of these style events in January alone.

  • Preston, Chargers experience...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - For most football teams that reach a championship game in Kentucky, the season is pretty much smooth sailing with only a minor hiccup or bump in the road along the way.

    Not for the Bullitt East Chargers in 2008. This season was one wild ride for the red and gold. This was a roller-coaster ride that was Badder than the Beast.

    Bullitt East did not start the season well. In fact, the red and gold had a losing record midway through the regular season. There were times that the team just didn’t play that well.

  • Failed conversion at :10 ends...

    LOUISVILLE - The Bullitt East Chargers didn’t quit when the season started with just two wins in the first six contests.

    The Chargers certainly didn’t quit at the end of the season, battling until the final 10 seconds on Saturday in the Class 4-A Commonwealth Gridiron Championship game.

    The outcome was a 15-13 loss to undefeated Bell County, but this Bullitt East squad left an indelible mark on its community with its heart and passion.

  • Tough losses dampen Eagles...

    BARDSTOWN - A tough setback in the middle of three games just before Christmas for the North Bullitt Eagles made it a long tournament for the green and gold in the Bearno’s Holiday Classic at Bethlehem High School.

    The Eagles, who have won just once this season in seven games, opened against the host team and playing without Travis Ridley the green and gold got off to a horrible start and never got back in the game as they lost 64-48.

  • An emotional season ends with it...

    LOUISVILLE - Football is often a game of inches.

    Those inches affect games, seasons and state championships. Just ask the Bullitt East Chargers.

    In a classic contest on Saturday in the Class 4-A Commonwealth Gridiron Bowl at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium, the outcome was not decided until the last second. Two teams played hard and two teams left it all on the field.

    When the clock ticked to :00, Bell County just happened to have a 15-13 lead.

    It’s not always what you get out of an endeavor that shapes your life, but what you put into it.

  • Bad weather halts some early...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - It was supposed to be a slow start to the week anyway as area basketball teams get ready for the holiday basketball season, but bad weather early last week cut down an already slim slate of games.

    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.

  • BC plays well against top foes

    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.

    The other three teams in the semi-finals were the first- and fifth-ranked teams in Kentucky in the pre-season coaches’ poll along with one of the top teams from Indiana.
