  • East players in All-Star game

        LOUISVILLE - Bullitt East will be well represented on Saturday night at the Kentucky High School Basketball Coaches’ Association Fifth to Eighth Region Junior All-Star game at Bellarmine University.

        The girls’ game will start at 6 p.m. and will include seniors-to-be Lindey Young and Jessica Philpott competing for the West Squad that has six players from both the Fifth and Sixth Regions taking part.

  • BE's Emberton to continue...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - A later bloomer when it came to soccer, the thought of playing at the next level was not something that Bullitt East defender Alex Emberton grew up envisioning.

        In fact, there was a time during his sophomore season in which Emberton stepped away from the game for a time. That seemed to reenergize his batteries and since that time he has been a mainstay in the Bullitt East program. He was a solid defender for the program this past season, the first time the Chargers had been ranked among the top-25 teams in the state.

  • BC's Griffin to Georgetown

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Bullitt Central basketball coach Joe Pat Lee says that Nathan Griffin knew more about the sport than any other student-athlete in the Cougar program last winter.

    But Griffin didn’t score a single point for the maroon and gray on the court. Instead, he served as what basically was the role of volunteer assistant coach/manager for the Cougars. The service and dedication paid off this spring when Griffin received a financial aide package to become a basketball manager at Georgetown College under long-tome head coach ‘Happy’ Osborne.

  • Cougar & Lady Cougar Hoops...

    It was wall-to-wall basketball at Bullitt Central recently as both the Bullitt Central Cougar and Lady Cougar Hoops Camps were conducted at the school.

    Cougar head coach Joe Pat Lee had 125 boys participating in the morning camp while Lady Cougar mentor Bryan Bates had nearly 80 girls participating in the afternoon session of his annual event.

  • Soccer caught the nation's...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - I love soccer.

        I always have. In high school, that was the sport I played, albeit, not very well (there is pretty much universal agreement on that point with both myself and my friends and teammates at the time).

  • Note to district coaches -...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - There is no truth to the recent rumor that local baseball coaches Brian Wise and Tommy Alvey attended Bullitt East’s graduation ceremony last week to make sure that Charger seniors Brandon Alphin and Matt Bowles did pick-up diplomas.

        Still, you couldn’t blame the North Bullitt and Bullitt Central head coaches for making a day out of it and presenting each of the players with a personal gift. The two could have taken up a collection and gotten donations from the coaches at Southern and Fairdale as well.

  • Youth All-Star action hits high...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - The summer All-Star season will hit the ground at full speed this week with most of the area teams seeing action.

        In fact, all of the area softball teams and all of the baseball All-Star teams up to the 12-year old age bracket will be in action this week. The handful of Under-13 and Under-15 teams in baseball will not play until next week.

  • East’s Stevens sweeps...

        LOUISVILLE - Overcoming the pressure of being the defending champion as well as having the top seed by a wide margin in both of her events, Bullitt East senior Jackie Stevens closed out here high school track career with a highlight day at the Class AA Kentucky State Track and Field Championships on Thursday at the University of Louisville.

        Competing more against her own high standards than against the other throwers, Stevens lapped the field in winning both the discus and the shot put for the second straight year.
