  • Bullitt Central squad returns to...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Capping off a week to remember, the Bullitt Central Cougars’ Co-Ed Cheerleading Squad captured the schools’ first Kentucky High School Athletic Association State Championship since 1975 last Saturday, beating out 13 other teams for the top honor.

         Bullitt Central posted a score of 273.5 which was well ahead of the 267.4 for Graves County, the defending state champion.

  • Vision First event at East...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – With the way the holidays fell this year, namely Christmas and New Year’s Day on a Wednesday, as well as the way the school breaks were lined-up, the traditional holiday basketball tournaments are a little more spread out this winter as there are basically three different times for the tournaments.

    In addition, because of the scheduling, two teams, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles and the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars, opted to participate in only one holiday tournament this season.

  • Lady Eagles topple Assumption

     HEBRON ESTATES – A little smoke wasn’t going to deter the North Bullitt Lady Eagles from the biggest regular season win in school history on Saturday as the green and gold stunned visiting Assumption 43-41 in the first game of the annual Bullitt County Challenge.

    In the three game Challenge, played at North Bullitt this season, the Lady Eagles picked up a win as did Bullitt East as they cruised past Grayson County 56-39. Keeping it from being a sweep for the local teams was Lexington Catholic’s lopsided victory over Bullitt Central.

  • BE wins sixth straight

     Bullitt East won for the sixth straight time to open the season on Saturday when they pulled away from a 37-37 halftime tie to beat Shelby County 68-52 in the Mike Casey Classic at Shelby County.

    The Bullitt East defense turned it around at halftime, holding the Rockets to eight points in the third quarter and just seven points in the fourth quarter.

  • NB rallies, but Central prevails...

     HEBRON ESTATES – After watching Bullitt Central score the first 11 points of the game, lead by 25-15 at halftime before surging ahead 39-22 late in the third quarter, some fans at North Bullitt on Friday might have decided to beat the traffic and leave early.

    Bad idea. Those fans missed the most exciting part of the game as North Bullitt rallied to within 52-47 with 1:12 remaining in the game. After a Bullitt Central free throw, North Bullitt had a solid look at the basket, but junior Chase McKenzie’s three-pointer spun out with a minute left in the game.

  • NB girls get the jump on BC

     HEBRON ESTATES – The top two teams in the 23rd District showed that it will be a dog fight for the next three months after North Bullitt needed a strong effort to finally put away arch-rival Bullitt Central 68-56 in the first of two meetings in the regular season between the programs.

    North Bullitt led throughout the last three quarters, but Bullitt Central did get within two points early in the third quarter and it was still a single digit difference in the final minute of the third quarter.

  • Butler shuts down BE scorers in...

     SHIVLEY – Despite finishing the first half on a 13-3 run to take the lead, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers could not continue that performance in the second half on Tuesday, dropping a 78-65 decision to Butler in a game of young and talented teams.

         In the pre-season, the Sixth Region coaches tabbed Butler as the favorite with Bullitt East second. The state coaches ranked Butler seventh in the state while the Lady Chargers stood 22nd.

  • Cougars collect huge win over...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – As December games go, the Bullitt Central Cougars couldn’t have picked up a more important win on Wednesday when they rolled past Southern 61-42.

         The win was the first for the Cougars over Southern since the two schools shifted to the 23rd District. In each of the past two seasons, Bullitt Central has had to play the ‘feed-in’ game in the district tournament (beating Evangel twice) and then taking on the number one seed in the semi-finals.

  • Chargers pull away from late...

     SHIVLEY – The Bullitt East Chargers had opened the season with three consecutive wins, but the questions persisted about the level of competition

         That all changed on Wednesday, as the red and gold traveled to Dixie Highway for a showdown with Sixth Region rival Butler. Questions answered. Bullitt East put together another strong performance, pulling away late to beat the Bears 66-54.

  • Scoring down, but Lady Eagles...

     HEBRON ESTATES – After not playing the previous weekend because of bad weather, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles almost lost another game on Tuesday of last week when school was called off again.

         However, this time conditions improved enough in the afternoon that Oldham County opted to make the trip to Bullitt County for a game. It turned out to wrk in North Bullitt’s favor as the green and gold hung on to claim a 63-61 victory.
