  • Lady Chargers retain Bullitt Cup

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Girls’ golf is not normally a fast-moving sport, but a high school tournament doesn’t normally take six days.

    That was the case with the 2013 Bullitt Cup after lightening halted play on a Tuesday at Heritage Hill Golf Course. Play did not resume until last Monday with the Bullitt East Lady Chargers retaining the traveling trophy that is sponsored by Schmid Funeral Home.

    Bullitt East with the minimum of four golfers, won the event with a 197 total. Bullitt Central and North Bullitt tied for the runner-up spot at 271.

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Coming off a disappointing effort four nights earlier, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers got back in winning form on Monday as they rolled past a struggling Bullitt Central team 25-9, 25-12, 25-12.

That led into a district loss to Whitefield Academy on Thursday in Jefferson County by a 25-10, 26-24, 25-13 count.
