  • BE girls best Fern Creek in...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Already knowing that there will be a second meeting, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers made the most of the first meeting on Tuesday as they beat visiting Fern Creek 58-47.

    With Mercy already the number one seed, Bullitt East and Fern Creek were battling for the second and third spots in the 24th District seeding process. No matter the outcome of the first meeting, the two will be playing in the second semi-final of the post-season tournament the week of Feb. 19 at Fern Creek.

  • Lady Eagles get back in the...

     HEBRON ESTATES — When Cassidy Bishop drilled a three-pointer in the corner to open the fourth quarter, the North Bullitt bench erupted.

    That was the kind of reaction Lady Eagle head coach David Marion was looking for.

    He wanted to see his team have fun on the court.

    After a stretch in January where there didn’t seem to be a lot of fun or energy, North Bullitt came out of that funk with a 74-25 victory over a very young Bullitt Central squad.

  • Eagles record second win of...

    HEBRON ESTATES — Lance Johnson and his North Bullitt teammates came out on fire Tuesday night.

    And when things got a little tight down the stretch, Johnson made sure there would be no letdown.

    For the second time this season, the Eagles turned back the Bullitt Central Cougars. This time, it was the home fans who got to enjoy the 53-41 victory.

    Johnson scored eight points in the first quarter as North Bullitt ran out to an 19-5 lead as T.J. Toney hit a trey just before the buzzer.

    The lead was 27-17 at intermission.

  • Lady Cougars win for second time

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- High school sports are often used to teach important life lessons to teenagers.

    That was the case on Thursday night for the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars when they traveled into Louisville and beaten Western 44-19.

    The lesson learned is that no matter how bad things might be for you, that there are others even less fortunate.

  • Mercy beats East in first meeting

     LOUISVILLE — The game plan never changes a lot.

    Two hard-playing teams battling it out on the basketball court.

    On Sunday, with four experienced starters returning from a year ago, the Mercy Jaguars were too much for the Bullitt East Lady Chargers.

    In a rare Sunday contest, the host Jaguars held off a third-quarter run to secure a 60-49 district victory.

    The long, athletic Mercy squad took advantage of a younger Bullitt East squad. However, Bullitt East head coach Chris Stallings really likes the way his team is coming along.

  • A Rivalry Renewed -- East slips...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON — The rivalry resumes.


    After not playing each other since March 7, 2014 in the semi-finals of the Sixth Region Tournament, Bullitt East and Bullitt Central clashed on Friday in a highly anticipated meeting between two teams with impressive records.

  • Sacred Heart gets hot late to...

     LOUISVILLE – The first half defense effort was nearly flawless, but it wasn’t good enough on Wednesday for the Bullitt East Lady Chargers in the second-round of the Republic Bank/Coca-Cola Girls’ Louisville Invitational Tournament at Bellarmine University.

  • East rolls past Ballard in opener

     LOUISVILLE – After playing two games the previous weekend to get the kinks out following a 21-day break between the games, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers showed there was no rust on Tuesday in the opening game of the 46th annual Republic Bank/Coca-Cola Girls’ Louisville Invitational Tournament as they jumped ahead of Ballard 25-8 early in the second quarter and then rolled to a 61-47 victory.

  • NB’s late rally comes up short...

     LOUISVILLE – It was just three weeks earlier that North Bullitt hung a 21-point defeat on visiting Fern Creek, but it might as well have been three years ago when the teams met again on Tuesday in the opening round of the 46th annual Republic Bank/Coca-Cola Girls’ Louisville Invitational Tournament at Bellarmine University.

    Forgetting what had gotten them the big win in the first game back from Florida, the Lady Eagles fell behind 12-1 six minutes into the game and despite a furious fourth quarter comeback, the green and gold came up short, falling 55-48.

  • Bullitt East suffers fourth...

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – For the fifth time in a little more than two weeks, the Bullitt East Chargers had a game come down to the final seconds on Thursday against visiting Sixth Region rival Pleasure Ridge Park.

    That streak of five straight games with decisions coming by fewer than four points started with a 66-64 win over the same PRP team in the opening round of the Boys’ Louisville Invitational Tournament.
