  • Lady Chargers avoid the ‘trap’,...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The ultimate ‘trap’ game didn’t trap the Bullitt East Lady Chargers on Monday as the red and gold kept their heads on the prize and beat Fairdale 83-58 in an opening round game of the Girls’ Sixth Region Tournament.

    Coming just four days after the Lady Chargers beat Mercy for the 24th District title and happening just two days before an expected showdown with Butler in the regional semi-finals, Fairdale (16-13)could have caught Bullitt East (21-5) off-guard.

  • Nothing easy for local teams in...

     HEBRON ESTATES --  Leaving  the Moore High gym on Friday night holding the first district trophy in 10 years, North Bullitt head coach Korey Craddock already knew who his team would play in the first round of the Sixth Region tournament.

    Twelve hours before the actual draw, Craddock knew his Eagles would be hosting cross-county rival Bullitt East.

    And, he was correct.

    The lone two Bullitt County teams in the Sixth Region boys’ tournament will face off at 7 p.m. on Tuesday.

    Led by an aggressive defense and hot shooting from the field, North Bullitt never trailed as Travis Dunnavan got the night started with a three-pointer just 20 seconds into the game.

    After needing overtime to win the regular season encounter, North Bullitt took home the 23rd District title with a 72-47 victory.

  • North, Central take care of...

     HIGHVIEW – Sometimes the only goal during a basketball game in the post-season is to win and advance.

    That was certainly the case on Tuesday in the two semi-finals of the 23rd District Tournament at Moore High School. Both North Bullitt and Bullitt Central went into the games as heavy favorites and had little to gain and everything to lose.

    As it turned out, both teams took care of business, advancing to meet each other on Thursday night in the championship game for the third straight season.
