  • A Rivalry Renewed -- East slips...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON — The rivalry resumes.


    After not playing each other since March 7, 2014 in the semi-finals of the Sixth Region Tournament, Bullitt East and Bullitt Central clashed on Friday in a highly anticipated meeting between two teams with impressive records.

  • Sacred Heart gets hot late to...

     LOUISVILLE – The first half defense effort was nearly flawless, but it wasn’t good enough on Wednesday for the Bullitt East Lady Chargers in the second-round of the Republic Bank/Coca-Cola Girls’ Louisville Invitational Tournament at Bellarmine University.

  • East rolls past Ballard in opener

     LOUISVILLE – After playing two games the previous weekend to get the kinks out following a 21-day break between the games, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers showed there was no rust on Tuesday in the opening game of the 46th annual Republic Bank/Coca-Cola Girls’ Louisville Invitational Tournament as they jumped ahead of Ballard 25-8 early in the second quarter and then rolled to a 61-47 victory.

  • NB’s late rally comes up short...

     LOUISVILLE – It was just three weeks earlier that North Bullitt hung a 21-point defeat on visiting Fern Creek, but it might as well have been three years ago when the teams met again on Tuesday in the opening round of the 46th annual Republic Bank/Coca-Cola Girls’ Louisville Invitational Tournament at Bellarmine University.

    Forgetting what had gotten them the big win in the first game back from Florida, the Lady Eagles fell behind 12-1 six minutes into the game and despite a furious fourth quarter comeback, the green and gold came up short, falling 55-48.

  • Bullitt East suffers fourth...

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – For the fifth time in a little more than two weeks, the Bullitt East Chargers had a game come down to the final seconds on Thursday against visiting Sixth Region rival Pleasure Ridge Park.

    That streak of five straight games with decisions coming by fewer than four points started with a 66-64 win over the same PRP team in the opening round of the Boys’ Louisville Invitational Tournament.

  • Cougars slip past Southern on...

      OKOLONA – The Bullitt Central Cougars had already won 12 games this season, but the maroon and gray picked up the most impressive win of the season on Friday as they traveled into Louisville and beat 23rd District rival Southern 57-55.

    This was the first game for both teams in several days as most programs in the area had not been in school all of last week until Friday. Bullitt Central did get to practice on Thursday after three days out of the gym and before playing on Friday.

  • BE girls split two in mid-season...

     LOUISVILLE – Can high school basketball teams play ‘scrimmages’ in the middle of the season?

    Technically the answer is no, at least not in Kentucky. But, after not playing a game for 21 days, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers treated two games last weekend in the Raatz Fence/O’Shea’s Basketball Classic at Mercy Academy pretty much as glorified scrimmages as the red and gold worked to get back into game shape.

    The results were positive as Bullitt East split the two games against top-level competition.

  • Chargers have a tough weekend

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – After not playing for nine days due to inclement weather, the Bullitt East Chargers finally got to play at home over the weekend, but the results were a pair of tough losses.

    Back early in the season, the Chargers had some trouble winning the close games, losing to Kentucky Country Day and Waggener by two and seven points, respectively. However, over the holidays, the team seemed to correct that problem, winning five of seven contests decided by eight points or less.


     It is the season for cheer competitions.

    Recently, several local teams competed in the Battle of the Bows in southern Indiana.

    Members of the Cheer Bling Sports Ministry team competed.

  • Cheering against the odds

     SHEPHERDSVILLE— On a Friday night in the fall, she’s on the sideline getting the crowd excited about the game on the field.

    That doesn’t mean she shouldn’t be excited for herself, either.

    Bullitt Central junior Kirsten Mitchell looks like a normal cheerleader on game day but she’s a cheerleader with the odds stacked against her.

    Mitchell was born with cystic fibrosis: a genetic disease that targets the lungs, making it difficult to breath and leaves the person prone to lung infections.
