    MOUNT WASHINGTON – Winning the battle by outscoring their opponent in each of the first three quarters, the Eastside Eagles claimed another Bullitt County Boys’ Middle School basketball title on Thursday as they defeated the Bernheim Bruins 48-35.

    Eastside never trailed in the game and, after the Eagles had a 6-5 lead early in the game, they bolted to a 14-7 lead by the end of the first quarter and never looked back. The Eagles were up 26-17 at halftime.

  • Hebron beats Eastside in OT for...

    Eastside forced the overtime when Hunter Mahoney drained a three-pointer with 16 seconds remaining to tie the score at 45-45. The Eagles had led 37-33 early in the final quarter before the battle down the stretch.

  • Rakes’ surge helps East better...

     FAIRDALE – In a game filled with surges by both teams, it was a 10-point run by Bullitt East to end the third quarter, that led Bullitt East to a 67-58 victory over Waggener in the opening round Saturday of the Forcht Bank King of the Bluegrass Holiday Classic.

    During that decisive run, it was all Bailey Rakes as the senior guard scored all 10 points as the Chargers advanced in one of the country’s most prestigious holiday tournaments.

  • Eagles nab golden game on Sunday

     Being in the right place at the right time with a perfect record never worked out better for a team than the North Bullitt Eagles this week as the green and gold have added a game on Sunday against Paul VI High School, a team out of Virginia that includes University of Louisville signee V.J. King.

    The game will be played at Fairdale High School starting at 4 p.m. on Sunday.

  • East returns to KOB at Fairdale

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – For the sixth time in the last eight seasons, the Bullitt East Chargers will play in the prestigious Forcht Bank King of the Bluegrass Holiday Classic at Fairdale High School.

    This year’s event begins on Friday, but Bullitt East does not play in the 16-team event until the Chargers take on Seventh Region favorite Waggener on Saturday at 6 p.m.

  • Bullitt East repeats as state...

     LEXINGTON -- For the second year in a row, the Bullitt East cheerleaders took home the gold, placing first in the All-Girls Super Division of the KHSAA State Competition last weekend.

    After 17 seniors graduated last year, new head coach Jeff Schaber said the girls’ constant hard work and drive to be the best is what caused them to win.

    “This team is driven to be a champion,” said Schaber, who previously served as the team’s choreographer for five years before becoming head coach this year.

  • Eagles hold off BC’s rally for...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The North Bullitt Eagles didn’t have their best night shooting the ball from the perimeter, but the green and gold did plenty of other things right on Friday as they traveled south on Preston Highway and beat arch-rival Bullitt Central 76-71.

    The victory was the fifth in a row for the Eagles to start the season and by far the most competitive. North Bullitt had been averaging 83 points a contest and had won the four previous games by at least 15 points.

  • Lady Eagles get the best of BC

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Holding Bullitt Central to just two baskets in the middle of the game, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles were in complete control as they got the best of the Lady Cougars by a 64-35 count.

    The win was the fifth in a row to start the season for the Lady Eagles. Even more importantly, this season, this first meeting is the outcome that will be used for the seeding process for the 23rd District Tournament in late February. North Bullitt has won four straight district titles and they are obviously the team to beat again this winter.

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Getting 30 points from senior Tyler Sharpe and a double-double from Brandon Klefot, the Bullitt East Chargers made it six straight to open the season when they beat Cordia 65-54 on Saturday in the Central Bank Classic at Lexington Christian High School.

    Bullitt East bolted out of the gate, leading 17-9 after the first stop and then pushed the margin to 32-20 at halftime. That was more than enough for the Chargers.
