  • 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.

  • 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.
