  • Cougars win two plus get Tatum back in fold

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The Bullitt Central Cougars picked up two more victories last week, but the biggest get of the week might have been the return of junior guard Tyler Tatum to the team for the Thursday game against Collegiate.

    Tatum was the team’s leading scorer a year ago at 14.6 points and was an All-Bullitt County selection. However, Tatum had been away from the team for more than a month as he worked on issues not related to basketball. He then missed the first three games of this season before practicing and playing last week.

  • Trojans draw first blood in 23rd District wars

     OKOLONA — For the first three quarters, North Bullitt head coach Alex Young was feeling pretty good.

    Going against a very athletic and tall Southern Trojan team and leading a team with no seniors, entered the final frame down just 53-49.

    And when Ron Still went in for a drive, the visiting Eagles trailed by just 54-53 with 4:40 to go.

    However, the home team would spend most of the final four minutes driving and getting to the foul line and Southern opened the district season with a 69-57 victory.

  • NB girls soar to win

     HEBRON ESTATES — For senior Cassidy Bishop, Tuesday was a perfect night for herself and her North Bullitt teammates.

    Opening up District 23 play, North Bullitt easily dispatched the Southern Lady Trojans 70-18.

    Marion was pleased that his team took care of business and that gave him the opportunity to see all 10 players get valuable minutes.

    For Bishop, it was especially sweet.

  • Lady Chargers falter in fourth, fall to Bearettes

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Scoring the final six points of the third quarter, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers were all-square with Sixth Region rival Butler on Tuesday in Mount Washington at 45-45.

    Unfortunately, the Bearettes opened the fourth quarter with an 11-3 surge. Bullitt East had just one basket over the first five minutes of the frame and could not respond, falling 63-54 to the state’s 11th-ranked team in the pre-season coaches’ poll.

  • Offenses MIA as Butler pulls out 57-51 win

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – In a battle of two of the top teams in the Sixth Region this season, the level of play never reached the expectations on Tuesday as Bullitt East and Butler slogged their way through an ‘ugly’ contest before the Bears left town with a 57-51 win that left fans of both teams disappointed.

    The only good news is that it is early in the year. A second meeting, be it in the post-season or even in the Boys’ Louisville Invitational Tournament has to produce a more entertaining contest.

  • All three local squads in state cheer finals Saturday

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Bullitt County teams will go after not one….not two….but three state championships on Saturday at the 2018 KHSAA Competitive Cheer Championships at the Alltech Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington.

     HEBRON ESTATES -- Scoring 10 of the first 12 points of the fourth quarter, the North Bullitt Eagles pulled away from a 50-50 tie after three frames and went on to beat visiting Bardstown 77-67 on Friday.

    The win was the second straight for North Bullitt under Alex Young, the program’s first-year head coach. Young, a former Eagle player got his first win at home in this game.

  • Lady Cougars win first game

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After dropping a game on Friday at Bethlehem, the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars returned to action less than 24-hours later and picked up the first win of the season as they rolled past visiting Richmond Model 52-33.
