  • East enjoys its donut weekend

     LEXINGTON - The Bullitt East Chargers started 2013 on a high note Saturday, rolling past traditional state power Lexington Catholic in the Dunkin Donuts National Tournament.

  • County clash gets an early start...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - The first of two Bullitt East versus Bullitt Central boys’ basketball meetings will take place on Monday of this week as the Chargers travel west to play in the Cougars’ Den.

    This contest was originally scheduled for last Friday as a boy-girl doubleheader. However, when it learned that Bullitt County schools would not return to classes until this week from Christmas break, the two schools began looking for an alternate date.

  • Is this Charger squad the best...

          SHEPHERDSVILLE - Tonight, Kentucky's top-ranked boys' basketball team, Bullitt East, will invade Bullitt Central to take on the Cougars' in the Big House.

         Sure, it's Bullitt East. The Chargers make the trip down Highway 44 every winter. Still, you can't type that as 'it's just Bullitt East.' Never before have the Chargers made the short trip to Shepherdsville with such lofty credentials.

  • Chargers rally to finish fifth...

          MOUNT WASHINGTON - If it was possible, the Bullitt East Chargers took another step up the competition ladder right after Christmas when the red and gold traveled to Fort Worth, Texas for the 55th annual Whataburger Tournament.

  • Lady Cougars still seeking an...

          SHEPHERDSVILLE - A three-day holiday trip to Scottsville didn't turn out so well for the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars between Christmas and New Year's Day as the team went 1-2 in the South Central Bank-Halton Classic.

         Worse than the record, the Lady Cougars lost senior shooting guard Kristin Collins to a knee injury in the second-half of the opening game. Collins returned to Shepherdsville that night and had an MRI, but the results were not going to be available until this past weekend.

  • Cougars improve to beat Allen...

          SHEPHERDSVILLE - Just before Christmas, the Bullitt Central Cougars took part in the Sarah Major Barger Tournament at North Bullitt, an event that was eventually won by Allen County-Scottsville.

         The Cougars finished fifth.

         A week later, Bullitt Central traveled south to compete in the South Central Bank-Halton Classic, an event conducted by Allen County-Scottsville. As it turned out, the Cougars were paired up with the host school in the first-round of the eight-team event.

  • After first month, net picture...

          SHEPHERDSVILLE - After the first month of the high school basketball season, we really have no clearer picture at the top of the boys' race in Kentucky than we did back in November.

         Blame it on Christ Presbyterian Academy (CPA) from Nashville.

         With Bullitt East opting out of the Louisville Invitational Tournament this season, everything pointed to the King of the Bluegrass Holiday Classic at Fairdale as being the place where a number one team in the state would emerge.

  • Lady Chargers finish third in...

          MOUNT WASHINGTON - The Bullitt East Lady Chargers got in a lot of basketball before the holidays and they made it work as they posted a 3-1 record in their own event.

         The Bullitt East Holiday Classic was an eight-team event that included three games in pool play and then a single cross-over game to end the tournament.

         The second annual tournament was sponsored by Vision First and Schmid Funeral Home.

  • Chargers fall in consolation...

          FAIRDALE - Consolation bracket games are never easy for any basketball team, but playing in the third-place game of the King of the Bluegrass Holiday Classic last Sunday was especially tough for Bullitt East...as well as Madison Central.

         In the end, the Chargers lost for a second straight night, falling 64-58.

  • North Bullitt gets to keep...

          HEBRON ESTATES - The good news is that the North Bullitt Eagles will not lose their basefield due to the construction of a new college and career center planned for its campus.

         The bad news is that the baseball team's schedule for this spring has been set and normal maintenance work which would be done in the fall was not completed because of the planned re-location.

         That means it will be a busy time for head coach Brian Wise, his staff and baseball supporters.
