  • Oh what a week of hoops ahead

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Basketballs will be bouncing all over Kentucky later this week as the first weekend of ‘holiday’ basketball tournaments will be in full swing.

    The biggest of the events has the Bullitt East Chargers returning to play in the King of the Bluegrass Holiday Tournament, the top in-state tournament during the holidays. Play will start on Friday but the Chargers will not entry the fray until Saturday.

  • Eagles turn up defensive...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Defense was the name of the game on Friday as North Bullitt and Bullitt Central put the clamps on each other before the green and gold pulled out a 46-31 victory in the first of two regular season meetings between the two rivals this winter.

    It is the game on Jan. 9 at North Bullitt that will be used for the seeding process for the 23rd District Tournament that will be played at the end of February at Bullitt Central.

  • Lady Eagles move to 4-0 with...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – In a battle of undefeated teams, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles showed they are still the team to beat in the 23rd District as they overcame some serious foul trouble to beat Bullitt Central 56-47 on Friday.

    While this win was very satisfying for the green and gold, this was just a warm-up contest for the two teams in the district race. It will be the meeting at North Bullitt on Jan. 9 that will be used to help seed the district tournament that will be played at Bullitt Central at the end of February.

  • North rolls past two Oldham...

    HEBRON ESTATES – You couldn’t blame the North Bullitt Eagles if there wasn’t a big sigh of relief on Tuesday after the green and gold beat visiting South Oldham 76-57.

         Following an opening week to the season that saw the team lose two games and one starter to injury, North Bullitt got to play at home for the first time and put together a strong effort to beat South Oldham, the Eighth Region champions a year ago.

  • BC sweeps important district...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Joe Pat Lee liked the grit and toughness of his team.

  • Bearettes rally in third frame...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – A good half does not make for a good game.

         The Bullitt East Lady Chargers learned that on Tuesday after falling to defending state champion Butler 68-54 despite leading 32-28 at halftime.

  • Chargers just sick over loss to...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON – For only the second time in the last five years, the Bullitt East Chargers lost a game at home on Tuesday and they were just sick about it.

         Literally.

         While head coach Bob Blackburn didn’t want to make excuses, it was obvious that his team was going through a bout of the flu as they took the court against Sixth Region rival Butler. The Bears took advantage of the opening and despite entering the game with a 1-2 record, the visitors left with a 61-57 victory.

  • Lady Chargers have tough weekend

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Bullitt East Lady Charger head coach Chris Stallings said before the season that his team was going to play a challenging schedule this year and that certainly proved to be the case on the opening weekend as the red and gold dropped a pair of games.

    On Friday, against Seventh Region power Male, a team ranked just ahead of the Lady Chargers in the pre-season coaches’ poll, Bullitt East faded late and lost 75-56.

  • Bullitt County cheerleaders win...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – There are some great rivalries in Bullitt County. We all know that.

    One that doesn’t perhaps get the Friday night attention of some of those sports is cheerleading. Bullitt Central and Bullitt East have been battling it out for years and North Bullitt has recently risen in the competitive circles.

    Over the past two years, all three programs have had high finishes at both the regional, state and national level.

  • Lady Cougars win again, but...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The quick start for the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars continued on Friday as the maroon and gray picked up a third straight win as they held off visiting Oldham County 54-50.

    The weekend was not as good for the school’s male counterpart as the Cougars dropped a pair of games after opening with a win over Thomas Nelson. On Friday, the Cougars fell to Bethlehem 57-43 on the road before traveling again on Saturday to Campbellsville for a one-day ‘showcase’ event where they lost to Monroe County 56-41.
