    SHEPHERDSVILLE – Bad weather this winter has forced a lot of changes to the local basketball schedules and that was certainly the case late last week for both the boys’ teams from Bullitt Central and Bullitt East.

  • Stretch of horrid weather is...

     FRANKFORT, Ky. – With much of Kentucky covered in a sundae made of snow topped with a crust of ice, fishing season seems millennia away.

    On Thursday, with a loud, fun-loving crowd in the stands, the Eagles continued to move up the ladder. And they also secured the top seed in the district tournament later this month.

  • Lady Eagles roll again

     HEBRON ESTATES - There weren’t any Cyndi Lauper look-a-likes in the crowd Thursday evening but North Bullitt coach Amber Courtney didn’t mind if her girls were having a little fun.

  • Eagles land on Beach

     It was a fun time on Thursday night as the North Bullitt Eagles hosted Southern in a basketball doubleheader.

    Wanting to get a big crowd, students were encouraged to dress up for their day on the beach.

    Free admission and free food added to the enticement.

    There were plenty of interesting sights during the game, which featured a pair of victories for North Bullitt.
