  • Duvall nets 30 as Lady Chargers...

     LOUISVILLE – The Bullitt East Lady Chargers ran their winning streak to ten games and 15 of the last 16 as they won twice more over the weekend playing in the Raatz Fence/O’Shea’s Classic at Mercy High School.

    Bullitt East has become a regular in the Mercy event which is one of the most prestigious ‘showcase’ events in the state each season. The event attracts a lot of college coaches to see the assembled talent.

  • Lady Cougars end losing streak...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- After averaging just 41 points a game through the first 18 games of the season, the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars finally found some offensive firepower on Friday, traveling into Jefferson County and beating Atherton 60-44.

    The 60 points offensive production was the second most the team had scored in a game this season, surpassed only by the 71 points they scored against Jeffersontown early in the season.

    Bullitt Central (6-14)  also scored 60 points before Christmas in a win at home over Waggener.

  • Eagles fall in strong upset bid...

     HEBRON ESTATES — Coming off Wednesday night’s late-game collapse against Southern, North Bullitt head coach Korey Craddock didn’t know what to expect when his Eagles took the floor Friday evening.

    But, what he saw was exactly what he was hoping.

    His Eagles put together its most complete game.

    Even in the 69-66 loss, Craddock was very encouraged by his team’s play.

  • East rallies...twice...to beat...

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – When you have been on the varsity team for six seasons, are the state’s seventh leading scorer and the favorite to be named Miss Basketball, the coach doesn’t need to remind you to pick up your game in the fourth quarter of a tight contest.

    Bullitt East senior Lindsey Duvall knew what her team needed and she responded with 14 of her game-high 26 points in the final three minutes on Tuesday to help lift the Lady Chargers to a 70-66 victory over arch-rival Mercy in a battle of two of the state’s top-20 teams.

  • Nightmare final minute forces NB...

     OKOLONA – Can a high school basketball team play both great and poorly in the same game?

    The North Bullitt Eagles pretty much proved that you can do all that and more as they rallied from a large deficit to take a big lead and then squandered it all in the final 50 seconds to force overtime before finally losing.

    Confused? So was North Bullitt head coach Korey Craddock after his team dropped a 78-75 decision to Southern in a key game within the 23rd District.

  • Defense turns up heat to fuel...

     HEBRON ESTATES — Hailey Free’s playing career is far from over.

    However, the junior point guard got an early start in her coaching career on Tuesday.

    Entering the locker room at halftime with a narrow two-point lead over Assumption, Free suggested to head coach David Marion that the Lady Eagles open up the third quarter with its half-court trapping defense.

    “It wasn’t my call,” said Marion.

  • Chargers just crush Manual

     MOUNT WASHINGTON -- Coming out of the disappointment of a quarter-final loss in the Boys’ Louisville Invitational Tournament five days earlier, the Bullitt East Chargers started a new winning streak in a rare Wednesday game as they crushed visiting Manual 79-46.

    It has been a tough season for the Crimsons as the normally powerful program had just three wins heading to Mount Washington. Bullitt East made sure they didn’t get the fourth victory as the red and gold pulled away from an 18-14 lead after one quarter with a 23-3 advantage in the second frame.

  • Duvall becomes top scorer in...

     LOUISVILLE -- Late in Friday’s game against Central, Bullitt East senior Lindsey Duvall became the leading scorer in Lady Charger history with a short jumper in the lane.

    A member of the Bullitt East program since she was a seventh-grader, Duvall missed all but seven games of her junior season, but still easily managed to get the mark. In fact, Duvall is the seventh leading scorer in the state this season at 24.5 points a contest for the 15-4 Lady Chargers.

  • Bullitt County PE educators...

     The Kentucky Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance (KAPHERD) presented awards to several Bullitt County educators during its 2016 fall convention in Lexington.

    Former Maryville Elementary School teacher Dennis Minnis was named 2016-2017 Kentucky Elementary School PE Teacher of the Year.
