  • Sweet Mercy! Lady Chargers beat...

     LOUISVILLE – Left in a state of flux at the start of the season after losing junior Lindsey Duvall to a knee injury, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers reasserted themselves into the race for the top spot in both the 24th District and the Sixth Region on Tuesday after beating defending champion Mercy 50-45 on the Jaguars’ home court.

  • No policy on middle schoolers on...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Does the Bullitt County Public School Board want to get into business of overseeing who is selected for various athletic teams?

    Or would the board like to defer those decisions to the coaches at the individual schools?

    Although a recent opinion of the state Attorney General’s office allows school boards and school-based councils to have powers to impose policies to regulate middle school students playing varsity sports, members shied away from assuming those powers.

  • Lady Eagles getting back to...

      HEBRON ESTATES – As the North Bullitt Lady Eagles head into the bigger events in the middle of the season, the good news is that coach David Marion’s team is getting healthy again.

    After playing games a few weeks ago without the team’s top two scorers, senior Katie Downey and junior Lauren Deel, those two players returned to the court last week and the green and gold responded with a pair of wins.

  • Lady Chargers stay hot; win two...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East Lady Chargers’ mid-season surge continued over the weekend as the red and gold knocked off two formidable foes over the weekend.

    On Friday, the Lady Chargers welcomed Central High School to Mount Washington and pulled out a 64-50 victory over a Lady Jacket team that entered the contest with a 12-5 record. Central had played in the Schmid Funeral Home Holiday Classic at Bullitt East back in December, finishing fourth but not facing Bullitt East.

  • Cougar struggles continue

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Running in quicksand.

    That seems to be the situation that the Bullitt Central Cougars have found themselves in for much of the season. After starting the campaign 3-1, the maroon and gray have dropped 11 straight contests.

    The outcomes have not been lopsided for the most part, but the team just can’t seem to make the plays down the stretch to get the wins.

    Last week, the team lost a pair of games. On Monday, it was Atherton outscoring the Cougars 27-9 in the second quarter as they then held on to win 67-56.

  • Mercy week is big deal for...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – It is Mercy week for the Bullitt East Lady Chargers, one of the biggest and toughest weeks of the regular season.

    Riding a six-game winning streak (not counting a game on Saturday at Lafayette) and winners in 10 of their last 11 games, the Lady Chargers appear ready for the challenge. Coach Chris Stallings’ team will play three games in five days against top-flight competition.

  • Frigid shooting leads to North’s...

     VALLEY STATION – Live by the three, die by not making the three.

    That pretty much summed up North Bullitt’s short trip to last week’s Republic Bank Louisville Invitational Tournament at Valley High School.

    The Eagles, a team that had made 12 three-pointers four days earlier in a win over Pleasure Ridge Park, made just two three-pointers on Tuesday and lost 63-45 to St. Xavier. The 45 points for North Bullitt in this game is 11 points fewer than the green and gold had scored in 14 previous games against Kentucky teams.

  • Sharpe guns down Bears from...

     VALLEY STATION – It was raining three pointers on the Butler Bears on Wednesday in a second-round game of the Republic Bank Boys’ Louisville Invitational Tournament at Valley High School.

    Fueled by the hot hand of Bullitt East’s Tyler Sharpe, the Chargers pulled away from a 34-34 tie early in the third quarter to beat the Bears 75-54.

  • Frustration! 7-point fourth...

     VALLEY STATION – The worst quarter of the season cost the Bullitt East Chargers dearly on Friday as the red and gold fell 54-49 to the St. Xavier Tigers.

    A seven-point fourth quarter ousted the Chargers in the quarterfinals of the Republic Bank Boys’ Louisville Invitational Tournament.

    Bullitt East opened the game with a 10-2 surge and didn’t trail until the fourth quarter. The Chargers were up 42-36 entering the final frame when the offense suddenly stopped producing.

  • Lady Cougars end tough week with...

     OKOLONA – At the end of a long week for the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars, there was a light at the end of the tunnel as the maroon and gray had some fun on Friday in defeating Moore 61-22.

    The week had started with a loss at Taylor County, a team that the Lady Cougars had beaten earlier in the season.

    Then, the team learned over the next few days that senior Lexi Graham would have very limited availability for the rest of the season because of her surgically-repaired knee.
