  • State tennis a good learning...

     LEXINGTON -- Three Bullitt Countians were part of the Republic Bank/KHSAA State Tennis Tournament on Thursday.

    In girls’ play, Bullitt East freshman Savannah Kruse defeated Nita Nair of Madisonville North Hopkins in the opening round.

    Kruse cruised through the match, winning 6-2, 6-0.

    In the next round, she ran into fifth-seeded Allison Quammen, a senior from Lexington Catholic.

    The senior jumped on top early and never allowed Kruse into the match.

    Quammen won 6-1, 6-0.

  • District baseball and softball...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – If Mother Nature allows the post-season for softball and baseball will start on Monday with play for all six Bullitt County teams in the 23rd and 24th District Tournaments.

    The first ‘big’ game of the week will come right out of the blocks on Monday when North Bullitt and Bullitt Central collide in the first round of the 23rd District Baseball Tournament at Moore High School. North Bullitt won the regular season meeting between the two schools 7-6 after trailing 5-0 early.

  • BC All-Sports Physical Night

     The Bullitt Central Athletic Department will host an All Sports Physical Night on May 19.

    The cost is only $15 and is available to current and incoming BCHS athletes. Proceeds from this event will be used to purchase supplies for the athletic trainer and will benefit all student-athletes at the school.

    The physicals will be valid for the entire 2016-17 school year.

    Each sport will have a set time for the physicals. Exams will be done on site at Pediatrics of Bullitt County on Cedar Grove Road.

  • Cravens back with Lady Cougars

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After four years away from the Bullitt Central program, Josh Cravens is returning, this time as the head coach, replacing Kyle Roach, who stepped down earlier this spring.

    In fact, it was the hiring of Roach that pushed Cravens away from the Lady Cougars. He had served as an assistant coach under previous coach Bryan Bates from 2006 to 2012 and had wanted the position that was eventually filled by Roach.

  • East’s defense struggles in loss...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East Lady Chargers hit the road over the weekend and for the first time this season, the road hit back.

    Playing in the Best of the West event at Buchanan Park in Bowling Green, the state’s fourth-ranked team dropped two of three games, including a 9-0 decision to Madisonville North Hopkins, a game in which the Lady Chargers made six errors and were never in the game.

  • Curry moves from freshmen to...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – When he was 10 years old, Jessie Curry knew he wanted to be a head basketball coach someday. He just didn’t think it happen so soon.

    At the age of 26, Curry was hired on Friday to take over the reigns of the Bullitt Central Cougars, taking over for Joe Pat Lee who stepped down after 11 seasons at the helm.

  • NB adds two additional wins to...

      HEBRON ESTATES -- It’s all about fine tuning entering the final week of the regular season for the defending Sixth Region champs.

    While wins and losses aren’t as important right now, North Bullitt baseball coach Brian Wise wants to keep positive momentum going.

    With only two games last week, the Eagles got a big 6-0 victory over Collins.

  • BE wins two of three in own...

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – It didn’t rain, something that has happened often in the past and is sort of a running joke around the Bullitt East baseball program, so the Charger Challenge without a hitch on Friday and Saturday.

    The only negative for the event was that the host team lost in the final game, dropping a 2-0 decision to North Oldham. The Mustangs finished without a loss, winning all three games they played.

  • Central struggles after long lay...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After not playing for 11 days, the Bullitt Central Cougars returned to baseball action on Saturday and dropped a 14-1 decision to visiting Henry County.

    The Wildcats had been able to play the night before, but Bullitt Central had not seen live pitching or hitting in almost two weeks and it showed. Five Cougar pitchers walked 13 batters in the six-inning game.

  • BC’s Rippy signs to cheer with...

      SHEPHERDSVILLE -- For some high school seniors, making a college selection is easy -- especially if you make that decision as a freshman.

    For Bullitt Central’s Miranda Rippy it might not have been that cut and dry, but she says that as a freshman she was positive that she wanted to attend Morehead State University and join the school’s national power cheerleading program.
