  • Local wrestlers just can’t find...

     LEXINGTON – After a strong showing in the Region Three Wrestling Championships a week earlier that saw 13 Bullitt County competitors advance to the Kentucky State Wrestling Championships, the good fortune melted away last week as no wrestler reached the podium, signifying a top eight finish.

    At the local level, reaching the podium is a powerful goal. A handful of Bullitt Central wrestlers have reached that level over the past dozen years, but it has eluded any wrestlers from either Bullitt East or North Bullitt.

  • Local swimmers in Region Four...

      LOUISVILLE – Friday’s Region Four Swimming and Diving Championships at the University of Louisville’s Ralph Wright Natatorium was a chance for Bullitt County’s small, but competitive program to show off at the end of the season.

    All three Bullitt County high schools practice and condition under one coach, Curtis Fuchs, but in meets the teams break down and compete under the banner of their own school.

  • 2017 Region Three Wrestling...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Bullitt East’s steady rise to the top of the Region Three wrestling world continued on Saturday when coach Adam Ritter’s team climbed to the number two spot behind perennial state power Fern Creek.

  • State Bowling Tourney turns...

      LEXINGTON – It was unfortunately a short visit to Lexington for the local bowlers who had qualified for last week’s Kentucky State Bowling Tournament at Collins Eastland Lanes.

    On Thursday, North Bullitt senior Errik Grant, coming off a herculean effort to finish as the runner-up in the Region Three Tournament a week earlier, struggled to find that magic at his first state meet and did not advance out of the qualifying round of the Boys’ Individual Tournament.

  • Second half breakdowns cost East...

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – You can never have a big enough lead at halftime.

    That was the story for the Bullitt East Chargers on Wednesday in the opening round of the Boys’ 24th District Tournament. The red and gold were up 38-29, but had left points on the court.

  • NB rambles on, beats Southern;...

     HEBRON ESTATES -- It was a tale of two seasons for teams competing in the 23rd District girls’ basketball tournament.

    For North Bullitt, there were sights set on the Sixth Region tournament.

    For Bullitt Central, there were sights set for next season where a very young team will return with a lot more experience.

    In the semifinals of the district tournament Tuesday, North Bullitt advanced to the final with an easy victory over Southern.

  • Be ready when fishing...

     FRANKFORT – Planning a fishing trip more than a couple days ahead of time can be a gamble in late winter when the weather is a mixed bag and the favorable conditions here today may be gone tomorrow.

    With some advance preparation, you can be ready to grab what you need and go when that friend calls at daybreak or the impulse strikes and the schedule allows for a last-minute trip.

    Performing regular maintenance on your reels can prevent catastrophic problems or costly repairs down the road.

  • Central runs and guns to opening...

     HEBRON ESTATES – Just three days removed from a horrendous 29-point outing in the regular season finale against Spencer County, the Bullitt Central Cougars bounced back in high fashion on Monday, opening the post-season with an 81-37 victory over Evangel.

    Playing in the 23rd District Tournament at North Bullitt, the Cougars advanced with the win and will play top-seeded Moore on Wednesday at 5:45 p.m.

  • East sweeps North in rivalry

     HEBRON ESTATES – Midway through the second quarter of Friday’s intra-county girls’ showdown between Bullitt East and North Bullitt, Lady Eagle head coach David Marion had seen enough.

    Often a coach who stalks the sidelines and barks out plays and encouragement, on this night Marion had already seen enough. For the rest of the game he took a seat, only rarely getting up to signalin substitutes.

  • 2017 Kentucky Miss Basketball

      LEXINGTON – It was a surprise of the best kind on Tuesday when Bullitt East senior Lindsey Duvall was announced as the 2017 Kentucky Miss Basketball during a banquet at the Lexington Center.

    Duvall was at the event as it also recognized the top players in each region this season. The Lady Charger senior was the co-Sixth Region Player of the Year along with Butler’s Jaelynn Penn. Following those awards, as voted on by members of the Kentucky Association of Basketball Coaches, there were two covered awards remaining on the stage.
