  • In a balanced region, BE has...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - There are a lot of teams with high expectations of winning the Boys’ Sixth Region Basketball title this season.

    Count the Bullitt East Chargers among that group.

    In a season in which ‘parity’ seems like the most popular word in coaches’ vocabularies, coach Troy Barr’s team has experience, size and depth.

    While there is a lot of basketball ahead for this group to decide its place in Charger basketball lore, there is little to argue that this could well be the biggest and deepest team ever in Mount Washington.

  • BC shows new look, new life in...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - When things don’t go so well, high school basketball coaches often make changes in the starting line-up.

    Bullitt Central head coach Joe Pat Lee took that one step further recently when he started adding names to the varsity roster.

    One of those new names, freshman Caleb Craddock, has provided a stabilizing influence on the floor, giving the Cougars a new look and a new outlook on the season.

  • Bullitt Central wrestling seeks...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – In high school wrestling, there is often a game within the game that coaches play.

    Yes, there is certainly the desire for team success. The Bullitt Central Cougars and head coach Josh Durham did that in 2006 and 2007, winning the regional title. There was even that push a year ago, although, the Cougars ended up third.

    But there is also the individual chase in each of the 14 weight classes. This winter, Durham will focus a little more on building up individuals as opposed to preaching team success.

  • Chargers' defense seals...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - An offensive showcase that saw over 1,000 total yards of combined offense between two powerhouse teams Friday in the Class 4-A semi-finals ended when Bullitt East’s defense stood up and made a memorable stop.

    On a bitterly cold night, it was the Charger fans that went home with the warm hearts as the red and gold advanced to the Kentucky State Championship game with a 52-49 victory over Calloway County.

  • Lady Eagles win in Shawnee split

    HEBRON ESTATES – In a true rebuilding year, North Bullitt girls’ basketball coach Bill Robinette had several reasons to smile on Monday night.

    But, of course, the Lady Eagles were far from where the veteran coach would like to be by the time district play begins in March.

    Opening the season at home, North Bullitt clawed its way to a 49-20 victory over Shawnee.

    Down 7-6, North Bullitt would score the next 17 points to take the commanding lead.

  • East's Preston has been on...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON – A million things to do and only a few days to get it all done.

    No, it’s not your holiday Christmas shopping.

    It’s the job this week for Bullitt East football coach Doug Preston. Reaching the Class 4-A State Championship game will do that to coaches.

  • Franklin Co. spoils BE's...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON – An eight point lead early in the fourth quarter was not enough for the Bullitt East Chargers on Tuesday as they opened the 2008-09 season with a 50-47 loss to visiting Franklin County.

    It was a top-flight battle between two of the area’s top teams. Franklin County was ranked 19th in the state in one pre-season coaches’ poll and either second or third in the always-tough 11th Region.

  • East's defense more than BC...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – Thursday night. Friday night. Saturday night.

    It didn’t seem to make any difference what night of the week it was for the Bullitt East Chargers last week as they rolled to an 86-37 victory over Bullitt Central in the first intra-county games of the season.

    The contest was moved up a night from the traditional Friday date because of the Bullitt East football team playing the Class 4-A State Semi-finals at home against Calloway County that night.

    It didn’t make any difference to the basketball Chargers.

  • BE's rushing attack is 11...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - When the Bullitt East Chargers started this football season 2-4, there was a lot of teeth gnashing and friction between a number of factions in the red and gold football community.

    It wasn’t easy for first-year head coach Doug Preston. This was a team with 19 seniors and winning was expected.
