  • 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.

  • 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.

  • East’s Meredith signs for...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – It’s not often that you find the perfect fit, but Bullitt East senior Peyton Meredith feels that he did just that recently when he signed to play his college baseball with Kentucky Wesleyan.

    The two first made contact back in the summer when the Panthers watched Meredith play for his summer team, the Evansville Razorbacks. That was the start of a pretty quick getting to know each other relationship that was pretty much sealed before Labor Day rolled around.

  • NB ‘s Andres headed to Midway...

     HEBRON ESTATES -- When Tripp Swisher saw Mary Andres play in the summer travel season, he saw someone who could play a variety of positions.

    He also saw someone who seemed to get along well with her teammates.

    And, he saw a player with a lot of potential.

    So when the Midway College softball coach made an offer, Andres was ready to sign on the dotted line.

    In making her decision, the senior at North Bullitt High had several things to consider.

  • BC reaches 4-0, but can’t make...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Only one thing went right for the Bullitt Central Cougars on Friday when the maroon and gray played host to an undefeated Collegiate squad.

    Fortunately, the one good thing for the Cougars on Friday was that they won the game, moving to 4-0 to start the season. Still, while it was a win, it wasn’t pretty as Bullitt Central claimed a 48-36 victory.

    First, the 48 points scored by the Cougars was 11 fewer than they had scored in any of the three previous contests.

  • TWO local state champs crowned

     LEXINGTON —  Bullitt County cheerleaders took Lexington by storm on Saturday.

    Local squads came home with two state Kentucky High School Athletic Association championships.

    In the All-Girls Super division, Bullitt East repeated as state champions as the squad defeated 10 other teams.

    In the Co-ed ‘A’ division, Bullitt Central won it’s first state championship since 2013 with the title over 12 other teams. Bullitt Central was a state runner-up last season. 

  • Lady Eagles fall from the ranks...

     HEBRON ESTATES -- Following a 4-0 start, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles fell from the ranks of the undefeated on Saturday as they dropped a tough 59-51 decision to Perry County Central.

    The fourth straight win to open the season came on Friday when the green and gold traveled to Dixie Highway and recorded a 66-41 win over Sixth Region rival Holy Cross.

  • Cougars run winning streak to...

     SPRINGFIELD – In a game in which the two teams were never separated by more than five points, Bullitt Central had the scoring edge at the right time as they pulled out a 59-56 win on the road last Monday over Washington County.

    The victory was the third in as many games this season for the Cougars.

    “I was really excited after this game,” Bullitt Central head coach Jessie Curry said a few days later. “This was our first real tough road game and they had a student section that was on us pretty good. I was really proud of our kids.

  • Eastside ‘B’ remains as the top...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Jumping out to a 12-4 lead in the first quarter, the Eastside Eagles’ ‘B’ team cruised to a 44-28 win over the Hebron Panthers on Thursday in the final game of the Bullitt County Boys’ Middle School Basketball Tournament.

    Playing on their home floor, the Eastside squad wrapped up a perfect season against Bullitt County foes as they repeated as the ‘B’ Division titelist.
