  • BE’s Simpson signs to play baseball at EKU

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – As early as he could remember, Bullitt East senior Garrett Simpson has had a baseball in his hand.

    That makes sense since his father, Craig, was a standout pitcher at Bullitt Central before going on to play college baseball at Ohio Wesleyan. Like his father, Garrett has become a quality pitcher.

    Success pitching for Bullitt East attracted top colleges to the family’s doorstep. In the fall, Simpson decided that Eastern Kentucky University would be where he would ply his trade over the next four years.

  • State wrestling was a learning experience

  • Post-season starts Monday for basketball

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Since the Bullitt County schools joined the Sixth Region for the 2006 post-season, there has never been as much balance in basketball as there has been this winter – especially on the boys’ side of things.

    That is what makes this week’s district play so interesting as some good teams are going to go home early. It also makes the district play important as the four district winners in the Sixth Region will each host first-round games of the Sixth Region Tournament on Monday, Feb. 25 against a district runner-up.

  • Local hoops teams get in final contests

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The final week of the regular season for the three area boys’ basketball team got off to a perfect start as each of the programs picked up an early week win.

  • Central off to another strong archery season

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – The first key archery tournament of the season went to Bullitt Central as the Cougars captured the NASP Region 5 event at John Hardin High School two weekends ago.

  • Short-handed Lady Chargers still too much for BC

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Nobody was mad, sad, surprised or elated on Tuesday when the Bullitt East Lady Chargers traveled to Shepherdsville for the first time since 2014 and showed the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars what it is like to be a top-15 team in the state.

    The outcome was never in doubt as the Lady Chargers jumped on top 24-5 after one quarter and the rolled up a 43-12 advantage by halftime. Midway through the third quarter the visitors pushed the margin past 35 points and the rest of the game was played with a running clock.

  • Hot-shooting Chargers roll to 75-41 victory

     HEBRON ESTATES – The Bullitt East Chargers are hot.

    Smokin’ hot.

    Shooting 60 percent from the field, the red and gold put together another solid performance on Friday, rolling past North Bullitt 75-41 in a game that was not nearly as close as many had thought it would be.

    Just two weeks earlier, North Bullitt had beaten Bullitt Central by five points and then three days later the Cougars had defeated the Chargers in overtime by a single point.

  • Lady Chargers show off their defensive form

     HEBRON ESTATES – The Bullitt East Lady Chargers have long memories.

    Really long memories.

    Coach Chris Stallings’ team remembered back almost a year to ending the previous season with a 59-46 loss to North Bullitt in the opening round of the Sixth Region Tournament, a game played on the Lady Eagle’s home floor.

    With that setback still vivid in their minds, the Lady Chargers returned to North Bullitt on Friday and this time the result was much different as Bullitt East rolled to a dominating 64-22 victory.
