  • ‘Revenge’ tour not working out...

     HODGENVILLE – To this point, the 2016-2017 basketball season as been the ‘revenge’ tour for the North Bullitt Eagles.

    Unfortunately, the Eagles are not the ones exacting the revenge.

    A year ago, coach Korey Craddock’s team opened the season 14-1 with an undefeated record against Kentucky teams up until the Boys’ Louisville Invitational Tournament. That winning streak included holiday tournament titles at both Spencer County and LaRue County.

  • Chargers earn number five seed...

     LOUISVILLE – It will be another rematch this season for Bullitt East as the Chargers will face Sixth Region rival Pleasure Ridge Park on Tuesday in the Republic Bank Boys’ Louisville Invitational Tournament at Valley High School.

    Bullitt East, with an 11-4 record after beating Whitefield Academy on Monday night, traveled to Shively and beat Pleasure Ridge Park 66-62 back on Dec. 13. It was the first time the Chargers had ever played at PRP.

  • East finishes third at Ashland...

     ASHLAND – A little extra time together over the holidays could prove to be a boost for a Bullitt East squad that has a number of big games on the horizon.

    Between the two holidays, the Chargers headed east and played in the 62nd annual Ashland Invitational. Bullitt East dropped the middle game and then finished third in one of the state’s oldest holiday events.

  • Cougars learn new lessons

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Not a lot of high school basketball games are played at 9 a.m. in the morning.

    That was just one of the lessons that a young Bullitt Central team had to learn last week as they played three games in the South Central Bank-Helton Classic at Allen County-Scottsville High School.

  • Eagles struggle on the road at...

     TAYLORSVILLE – Three days in Taylorsville before the holidays didn’t put the North Bullitt Eagles in a very festive mood.

    At least not as festive as they were a year earlier.

    Returning to the Nick Burns Memorial Tournament after winning the title each of the past two seasons, the Eagles dropped all three games in 2016. That included an opening loss to Shelby County, the team they had beaten two years earlier in the title game.

  • Lady Cougars get a good ‘preview...

     HODGENVILLE – Just call last week’s trip for the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars to LaRue County to participate in the R.E. Williams Holiday Classic a preview to some upcoming games.

    Bullitt Central won its opening game in the eight-team event, beating Logan County 49-46. The team then seemed on the verge of reaching the championship game when they led LaRue County late before the Lady Hawks rallied to win 42-41.

  • Male pulls away late to beat...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Queen of the Commonwealth Tournament last week at Bullitt East got just the final everyone was expecting, but a hot-shooting Male squad pulled away late to record a 74-53 victory over the host team to claim the tallest trophy.

    Just three weeks earlier, Bullitt East had traveled to Preston Highway and played the state’s pre-season number five squad to within an 81-78 final.

  • Lady Eagles lose the battle to...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – A virus that moved through the North Bullitt Lady Eagle basketball team side-tracked any hopes the squad had of making a strong showing in the Queen of the Commonwealth Tournament at Bullitt East.

    Already facing a loaded bracket of teams, the Lady Eagles had absolutely no chance in Monday’s opening game of the 16-team event when the illness sidelined North Bullitt’s two best players – senior Lauren Deel and junior Hailey Free.

  • All area teams hitting the road...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After a few days off for Christmas, five of the six area basketball teams will be back in action this week as the holiday tournament merry-go-round continues.

    The Bullitt Central Lady Cougars, after playing at LaRue County last week, will not be playing any games this week. The team will return to action on next Tuesday with a game at North Oldham and will then be part of a key boy/girl doubleheader against 23rd District rivals Moore at home on Friday, Jan. 6.

  • Chargers get the best of...

     BUCKNER – In this new computer age, coaches now rarely use the word ‘rebuilding.’ Instead, the new word is a ‘reboot.’

    Well for the Bullitt East Chargers, last week’s championship game in the Pegasus Sports Network Best in Hoops Tournament at Oldham County was a reboot of a reboot.
