  • Thunderstruck! Chargers roll big...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON - There will be plenty of better opponents down the road, but the Bullitt East Chargers got the 2010-11 season off to an impressive start on Monday with a 107-49 victory over visiting Shawnee.

  • Again!! Mount Washington nabs...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - The beat goes on...and on...and on.

        The Mount Washington Lady Generals picked up another Girls’ Bullitt County Middle School Basketball Championship on Thursday, surviving a late run by the Zoneton Lady Timberwolves to win another title 31-28.

        Mount Washington head coach Christal Stallings is now on a first name basis with Tim Gonterman who has handed out the winner’s trophy for the past 16 seasons. All but two of those times he has presented the trophy to the Lady Generals.

  • 'Young' can't...

        HEBRON ESTATES - The North Bullitt Lady Eagles were a very young team a year ago under then first-year head coach Amber Courtney.

        The green and gold will be younger this season.

        Losing the program’s only two seniors from a year ago was expected. Those losses left Courtney with no seniors this season and only one junior. There could well be times this season when as many as four varsity starters could be freshmen - or younger.

  • Eagles look to be stronger in a...

        HEBRON ESTATES - Over the past several seasons, wins have been few and far between for the North Bullitt Eagles.

        Because of that, expectations for this season are minimal. However, Eagle head coach Lee Barger feels his 2010-2011 team can rise above those expectations this winter and be competitive in a very tough 24th District race.

        Barger will have to do that with a much different cast than a year ago.

  • CC making huge strides locally

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - I cannot use enough adjectives to describe the strides that cross-country has made in Bullitt County over the past few years.

        There was a time when having one high school team even qualify for the state championships was major news. Heck, there was a time when having two of the six county programs fielding full teams was major news.

  • BE's Jackson headed to Ky....

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - Bullitt East baseball standout Chaz Jackson didn’t waste any time when it came to deciding on his future on the diamond.

        In a ceremony last Monday at the school, the senior signed to play baseball starting next fall at Kentucky Wesleyan College, an NCAA Division II program in Owensboro.

        Other than a short look at St. Catharine College, Jackson knew exactly where he wanted to attend college for the next four years.

  • Lady Cougars finish strong...

    LEXINGTON - A second straight strong season by the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars was capped with an impressive performance Saturday at the Class AAA Kentucky State Cross-Country Championships at the Kentucky Horse Park.

    Led by junior Rachel Thacker and sophomore Alyssa Shifflett, the Lady Cougars finished 19th as a team on Saturday. That effort was particularly pleasing and the maroon and gray defeated Meade County 490 to 512. The two teams had tied for second place in the regional meet a week earlier.

  • East's Big Day - Girls...

    LEXINGTON - Bullitt County’s impressive improvement in cross-country bore more sweet fruit on Saturday at the Kentucky State Cross-Country Championships at the Kentucky Horse Park.

    In the Class AA Girls’ race, Bullitt East, a program that had never even qualified for the state championships, finished eighth overall. Freshman Jessica Prell turned in the best finish at state ever for a Lady Charger when she crossed the line 20th.

  • Big first half hole sinks...

        LAWRENCEBURG - Bullitt Central’s 2010 post-season football success story proved to be short and sweet as the end came on Friday with a 42-7 loss to Anderson County in the second-round of the Class 5-A play-offs.

  • Warriors too physical for Eagles

        LOUISVILLE - For the past two months, the North Bullitt Eagles have lined up and blown people off the line of scrimmage.

        On Friday night, the Eagles got a little dose of their own medicine.

        As a result, the Western Warriors will be advancing to a Friday night encounter against Collins High School in the Class 4A football playoffs.

        The visiting Eagles ended their season Friday with a 29-8 setback to the Warriors.
