  • Quick start fuels Lady Eagles...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The second of two encounters between the girls’ basketball programs at North Bullitt and Bullitt Central didn’t differ much from the first.

    In December, North Bullitt handled the visiting Lady Cougars by 46 points.

    On Tuesday, the margin was a little more respectable but the outcome the same as North Bullitt easily defeated the host Bullitt Central by a count of 66-32.

  • Central slows it down to beat...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – When you two main ball handlers commit only one turnover against a trapping defense, good things happen.

    And when you seem to have a little more desire than you opponent to get to loose balls, even better things seem to happen.

    After suffering an 18-point defeat at the hands of their district rivals on Dec. 9, the Bullitt Central Cougars got a little bit of revenge on Tuesday with a 44-39 win over North Bullitt.

  • Cougar hoops still a work in...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE — As has been the case on several occasions this season, the Bullitt Central Cougars have hung tough against a quality opponent — only to come up a little short on the scoreboard.

    On Friday, the Western Warriors came to Shepherdsville to disrupt the homecoming festivities.

    Down by six with only two minutes to go, Western cashed in at the foul line down the stretch to take a 61-52 victory.

  • Chargers split a pair of tough...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – It was supposed to be homecoming on Friday at Bullitt East, but that didn’t happen because of the girls’ team advancing in the Louisville Invitational Tournament, but it was still a happy place for the Chargers on Friday as the red and gold held Bardstown to six points in the third quarter and then coasted to a 75-64 win.

  • Eagles and Cougars both fall in...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- While most of the area boys’ teams were off early last week as the Girls’ Louisville Invitational Tournament took center stage, both North Bullitt and Bullitt Central got in a game early last week with mixed results.

    On Monday, North Bullitt got a rematch with South Oldham and while it ended up being the second loss for the Eagles to the Dragons, this game was much closer.

  • North’s inspired rally hits a ‘...

     LOUISVILLE – Two minutes into the fourth quarter of the opening game of the 2017 Republic Bank/Coca-Cola Girls’ Louisville Invitational Tournament, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles thought they had Christian Academy of Louisville just where they wanted them.

    The Lady Eagles were wrong.

  • Slow start and fast finish works...

     LOUISVILLE – Not much changed in 11 days for the Bullitt East Lady Chargers and the Central Lady Jackets.

    The two rivals had met at Central on Jan. 13 with Bullitt East winning 66-31 despite the fact that they knew they would meet again in the opening round of the Republic Bank/Coca-Cola Girls’ Louisville Invitational Tournament. The outcome was almost identical in the second meeting as the Lady Chargers pulled away late to win 62-31.

  • Night Two...Incredible second...

     LOUISVILLE – Getting 33 points from Miss Basketball candidate Lindsey Duvall and playing a nearly perfect second quarter, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers surged to a 63-54 victory on Wednesday over Manual in the Republic Bank/Coca-Cola Girls’ Louisville Invitational Tournament.

    Manual came into the tournament as the fourth ranked team in the state and the number three seed amongst the Louisville squad, but a 23-5 scoring edge in the second quarter gave Bullitt East a 37-31 halftime edge and the red and gold never relinquished that in the second half.

  • Shooting woes stall Lady...

     LOUISVILLE – Bullitt East’s strong run through the Republic Bank/Coca-Cola Girls’ Louisville Invitational Tournament came to a disappointing finish on Friday when a cold-shooting second half led to a 73-59 loss to Mercer County in the event’s quarter-finals.

  • 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.
