  • East’s baseball squad beats...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – By the very nature of the beast, the first round of any district tournament in Kentucky is never easy for coaches. One loss and even the best of regular seasons can be made meaningless.

    Still, this season, Bullitt East baseball coach Jeff Bowles slept like a baby Sunday night before his Chargers squared off with 24th District rival Whitefield Academy. The Chargers had beaten the Wildcats 14-0 in their regular season meeting and it could have been worse.

  • Rain can’t dampen efforts of...

     LOUISVILLE – For the first time since the three Bullitt County schools were put into the same, Class 3-A, Region 3 alignment, there were no individual titles won on Saturday on the track at the regional championships at St. Xavier High School.

    That was bound to happen when the locals are competing with Male, Central, St. Xavier and Manual, some of the top track programs in the state.

  • NB’s Sutherland signs with...

     HEBRON ESTATES – A phone call during a winter snowstorm will be shaping the future for North Bullitt Lady Eagle basketball player Krista Sutherland for at least the next few years.

    While sitting at home that day and unable to practice basketball, Sutherland got a phone call from Franklin College, an NCAA Division III program in Franklin, Indiana. Sutherland wasn’t really aware of the school and its basketball program but she was ready to talk.

  • BE’s Breeden headed to North...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – A chance meeting with a basketball coach from North Greenville University in January recently paid big dividends for Bullitt East senior Ethan Breeden.

    Breeden’s father, Mike, was sitting in the stands at the Boys’ Louisville Invitational Tournament when he struck up a conversation with an assistant coach from North Greenville as the coach was watching Charger hoops standout Tyler Sharpe. By the end of the talk, the assistant basketball coach was setting up a contact between the Breeden family and the school’s golf coach.

  • State tennis a good learning...

     LEXINGTON -- Three Bullitt Countians were part of the Republic Bank/KHSAA State Tennis Tournament on Thursday.

    In girls’ play, Bullitt East freshman Savannah Kruse defeated Nita Nair of Madisonville North Hopkins in the opening round.

    Kruse cruised through the match, winning 6-2, 6-0.

    In the next round, she ran into fifth-seeded Allison Quammen, a senior from Lexington Catholic.

    The senior jumped on top early and never allowed Kruse into the match.

    Quammen won 6-1, 6-0.

  • District baseball and softball...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – If Mother Nature allows the post-season for softball and baseball will start on Monday with play for all six Bullitt County teams in the 23rd and 24th District Tournaments.

    The first ‘big’ game of the week will come right out of the blocks on Monday when North Bullitt and Bullitt Central collide in the first round of the 23rd District Baseball Tournament at Moore High School. North Bullitt won the regular season meeting between the two schools 7-6 after trailing 5-0 early.

  • BC All-Sports Physical Night

     The Bullitt Central Athletic Department will host an All Sports Physical Night on May 19.

    The cost is only $15 and is available to current and incoming BCHS athletes. Proceeds from this event will be used to purchase supplies for the athletic trainer and will benefit all student-athletes at the school.

    The physicals will be valid for the entire 2016-17 school year.

    Each sport will have a set time for the physicals. Exams will be done on site at Pediatrics of Bullitt County on Cedar Grove Road.

  • Cravens back with Lady Cougars

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After four years away from the Bullitt Central program, Josh Cravens is returning, this time as the head coach, replacing Kyle Roach, who stepped down earlier this spring.

    In fact, it was the hiring of Roach that pushed Cravens away from the Lady Cougars. He had served as an assistant coach under previous coach Bryan Bates from 2006 to 2012 and had wanted the position that was eventually filled by Roach.

  • East’s defense struggles in loss...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East Lady Chargers hit the road over the weekend and for the first time this season, the road hit back.

    Playing in the Best of the West event at Buchanan Park in Bowling Green, the state’s fourth-ranked team dropped two of three games, including a 9-0 decision to Madisonville North Hopkins, a game in which the Lady Chargers made six errors and were never in the game.

  • Curry moves from freshmen to...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – When he was 10 years old, Jessie Curry knew he wanted to be a head basketball coach someday. He just didn’t think it happen so soon.

    At the age of 26, Curry was hired on Friday to take over the reigns of the Bullitt Central Cougars, taking over for Joe Pat Lee who stepped down after 11 seasons at the helm.
