     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Looking back on any year with regards to the high school sports scene and you can always find a few gems and a few nuggets. That is just the nature of the beast.

  • BC girls rebound for 2-1 finish...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - The opening game for the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars in the Hardee's Classic at Warren East High School ended in frustration, but the maroon and gray bounced back very well the rest of the week to finish fifth with a 2-1 record.
        After falling to Leslie County 49-46 in the first-round game on Wednesday, coach Bryan Bates' team came back a day later and blitzed Crittenden County 73-41. That led into the fifth-place game on Friday where the Bullitt Central rolled past the host school 60-42.

  • BE girls get needed court time

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - The final record wasn't exactly what head coach Chris Stallings was looking for, but the Bullitt East Lady Chargers got a lot of much-needed court time last week playing in the Vision First/Bullitt East Classic.
        Against a strong field, Bullitt East posted a 1-3 record and finished sixth in the field after losing to Bell County on the final day.
        The good news for Stallings was that the team played its best game at the end.

  • Lady Eagles still learning how...

        HEBRON ESTATES - The young North Bullitt Lady Eagles continue to learn on the fly, but finding ways of winning close ball games is a tough lesson to grasp at times.
        That was the case last week in the Western Holiday Classic as the green and gold dropped two of three games in the eight-team event. Those results left the team finishing sixth.
        Both of the losses saw the Lady Eagles fail to take advantage of opportunities in the fourth quarter that could have led to victories.

  • Bears stun cold-shooting Chargers

     FAIRDALE - A meltdown over the final 90 seconds of the first half put the Bullitt East Chargers behind the eight ball and the red and gold could never recover on Tuesday in the semi-finals of the King of the Bluegrass Holiday Tournament at Fairdale High School.

  • BC bounces back to finish 2-1

     BARDSTOWN - The start of three straight games in the Bethlehem Holiday Classic didn’t go as Bullitt Central had hoped, but after an opening loss, the maroon and gray rebounded in a big way on Tuesday and Wednesday to finish second in the four-team field.
