  • Hoops action will be hot all week

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After single games on Monday night in both the 23rd and 24th District Tournaments, the basketball will really heat up as the week progresses.

    In the 23rd District, the Bullitt Central boys’ moved into the semi-finals with a win over Evangel on Monday. The Cougars will now take on Moore on Wednesday at 5:45 p.m. in the first semi-final. North Bullitt will take on Southern in the second semi-final.

    The two winners on Wednesday will advance to Friday’s championship game that has a start time of 6:30 p.m. at North Bullitt.

  • Both district hoops’ tournaments...

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – Local basketball fans won’t have to travel very far this week as the 2017 high school basketball post-season starts with the 23rd District Tournament at North Bullitt and the 24th District event being contested at Bullitt East.

    While each of the two local districts have one five-team event and one four-team event and the days for the boys’ and girls’ events are the same from Tuesday forward, there are some time differences so area fans need to check the brackets in this issue for the time schedules.

  • Teams are getting ready

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – During the final week of the regular season, the thoughts of area basketball coaches is more on preparation than domination as all thoughts are focused on the upcoming post-season play when every team will start with a 0-0 record.

    On Tuesday, the Bullitt Central Cougars played at home against Fairdale, a team that just a week earlier had taken Bullitt East to double overtime before losing. This time the Bulldogs just needed regulation time and beat the Cougars 68-49.

  • Chargers do it all in one big...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Just do it all in one night.

    Homecoming? Check.

    Senior Night? Check.

    National Guard Game of the Week? Check.

    Beating Elizabethtown? Check.

    Check Mate!

    Bullitt East did all of that and even some more on Thursday as the Chargers played host to visiting Elizabethtown. There was a whole lot going on but when the evening was finally over, the Chargers had closed out the regular season with an 81-63 victory.

  • Chargers jump ahead early in win

     HEBRON ESTATES – Holding arch-rival North Bullitt to just 11 points in the first half and 24 points through three quarters, the Bullitt East Chargers won for the second time in as many nights on Friday, securing a 63-47 win.

    Often in basketball, offense and defense is in the eye of the beholder. Bullitt East fans could point to a strong defensive performance as the reason for the North Bullitt scoring woes. Conversely, North Bullitt fans were frustrated at the output from the offense.

  • East wins double OT thriller...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Rallying from a 53-41 deficit after three quarters, the Bullitt East Chargers pulled victory from the jaws of defeat on Thursday as the red and gold defeated visiting Fairdale 91-88 in a double overtime marathon.

    Bullitt East despite the fact that the team is going through another serious bout of injuries and illness. Against Fairdale, seniors Konnor Polson (mono), Derrick Donigan (hamstring) and Grant Skaggs (sprained ankle) either didn’t even dress for the contest or were very limited in their participation in the game.

  • Big second quarter powers Lady...

     HEBRON ESTATES – A 25-5 surge in the second quarter was more than enough for the North Bullitt Lady Eagles on Tuesday as the green and gold rolled past visiting Marion County 69-40 on Senior Night.

    The team has just one senior, Lauren Deel, and she led all scorers in the game with 18 points.

  • Luttrell’s basket at :03 lifts...

     HEBRON ESTATES – A short jumper in the lane from junior Peyton Luttrell as the clock ticked to :03 helped overcome a few North Bullitt miscues moments earlier and gave the Eagles a 45-43 win over visiting Elizabethtown on Tuesday.

    After eight straight losses, North Bullitt head coach Korey Craddock will take a win anyway he can get it.

    “It’s always good to get a win on Senior Night,” the coach said a few moments after the game.

  • East’s Foster heading to Eastern...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – It took a little longer than expected for the obvious to happen, but finally Bullitt East senior soccer standout Christian Foster was able to put pen to paper and sign a national letter-of-intent to play at the next level for the Eastern Kentucky Lady Colonels.

    It was earlier believed that Foster could sign in the fall during the early signing period, but a few days before that, the senior and her coaches learned that soccer players had to wait until the winter signing period. No problem. Foster never wavered from her commitment.

  • North’s Johnson makes it all...

     HEBRON ESTATES – It’s always good when you know exactly where you want ot go to college early in the process.

    That was certainly the case for North Bullitt senior Nate Johnson who last week singed to play his college football at Centre College in Danville, Kentucky.

    “I’ve known for a while now,” Johnson said after a ceremony last Wednesday in the North Bullitt Media Center. “They started (recruiting me) before anyone else. They started after my junior season.”
