      MOUNT WASHINGTON – Bullitt East senior Kathleen Scott was all smiles on Wednesday during a ceremony in the school’s Media Center in which she signed to play basketball for the Bellarmine University Lady Knights.

    In fact, all Bellarmine had to do was offer and Scott was on-board.

    “When they asked, I knew,” the senior said following the signing ceremony. “I thought it was the best fit for me.”
