  • 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.

  • King of the Bluegrass a positive...

    FAIRDALE - The Bullitt East Chargers didn’t play a late game on the final night of the Canfield Development King of the Bluegrass Holiday Tournament.

    The Chargers only played half of their four games in the ‘big’ gym.

    There was no trophy on Tuesday when the team finished tournament play in the middle of the afternoon.

  • Football to see some key changes...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - A great local high school football season is now in the rear view mirror and what a season it was.

    Obviously, Bullitt East reaching the Class 4-A state championship game heads the list of accomplishments, but perhaps just as important is the fact that for the first time in at least 15 years, all three Bullitt County football programs posted winning records.

    Yes, there have been seasons where all three have been below .500, but marks of 9-6, 8-3 and 8-5 this fall might just be the best combined mark in Bullitt County football history.

  • 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.
