  • Cougars to play at Henry Co....

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After seemingly Bullitt County teams traveled to the four corners of Kentucky for basketball before Christmas, the week after Christmas will have four of the five teams in action this week competing in Florida.

    The only team staying relatively close to home is Bullitt Central. The Cougars will return to one of the oldest in-season holiday tournaments in Kentucky this week, and one the program played in at times back in the 70s, when they play in the Henry County Invitational.

  • North pulls away late to beat...

     BUCKNER – A 13 to five run to end the game lifted the North Bullitt Eagles to a 59-54 victory over Grant County on Saturday in the seventh-place game of the Pegasus Sports Network Best in Hoops Tournament at Oldham County High School.

    The victory salvaged the week for the Eagles after they had lost the first two games of the eight-team event. On Thursday there was a 79-44 setback to the host team before a 58-52 loss to Sixth Region rival Jeffersontown on Friday in the consolation bracket.

  • Lady Cougars set for a break

       SHEPHERDSVILLE – The offense woes for the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars were back in full force last week after the team had its two most productive offensive games in the previous ten days.

    Scoring just 38 points in two games, the Lady Cougars lost a 61-23 decision to Lexington Bryan Station on Tuesday of last week and after spending the night in Lexington, the team fell to Paris 56-15.

  • Lady Cougars grab elusive first...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- In high school basketball there are no ugly wins and no beautiful losses. The final score decides a winner and loser.

    Through the first three weeks of the 2017-18 season, the final scores have not been kind for the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars. The team had lost it’s first five games with each of the defeats coming by at least double-digit margins.

  • BE’s Queen of the Commonwealth...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – With four of the top 17 teams in the pre-season coaches’ poll in the field, including defending state champion and top-ranked Mercer County, the Queen of the Commonwealth Tournament this week at Bullitt East will be one of the top girls’ events in the state this season.

    The new kid on the block, the Queen of the Commonwealth event has 16 teams with each of the teams playing four games. This is the second year for the event with Male having captured the first event last year, beating Bullitt East in the championship game.

  • North Bullitt wins 6th Region...

     For a second year in a row, the North Bullitt cheerleaders captured the Sixth Region title at Valley High School. The squad competed in the All-Girls Medium division.

    At the state competition at the Kentucky Horse Park, North Bullitt placed fourth out of 15 squads.

  • BE gets strong outing at home to...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON -- The Bullitt East offense went into high gear on Tuesday as the Chargers exploded for a season-high 85 points as they cruised past visiting Taylor County 85-67.

    This was only the second home game of the season for Bullitt East. Unftortunately, the red and gold are not set to play at home again until Jan. 25 when they take on Pleasure Ridge Park.

    Bullitt East came out shooting the ball well as they scored 23 points in the first eight minutes to take a 12 point advantage. The lead was still in double-digits at 39-28 at halftime.

  • BC shows they can compete in...

      OKOLONA – Neither team got a win on Tuesday at Moore, but both of the Bullitt Central varsity teams showed that they can be competitive this winter against their rivals in the 23rd District.

    Playing the first of three district games this season, the Bullitt Central boys were within three points with less than two minutes to play before a couple of bad passes led to Moore lay-ups and the Mustangs stretched the final score to 64-55.

  • Different foes, but frustrating...

     HEBRON ESTATES – In a somewhat unusual scheduling move, the two North Bullitt varsity teams played different foes on Tuesday in back-to-back contests.

    The move came about when Boyle County had to cancel a girls’ game at North Bullitt last season during a flu outbreak. The only date available this year happened to be on Tuesday, when the boys were already scheduled to play Iroquois.

    So, the boys’ played at 6:30 on Tuesday with the girls’ game following at 8 p.m.

    Lady Eagles Stumble

  • BC does it right -- twice -- to...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Bullitt Central cheerleading coach James Moore was quite confident the night before that his team could win the Co-Ed ‘A’ Division Championship at the KHSAA Kentucky State Cheerleading Championships the next day.

    He just didn’t know that the team would have to do it twice.

    In the end, the Cougar squad got it done both times, winning the state championship for a sixth time and the second since the KHSAA took over the sport in 2013.
