  • Bullitt Central’s new gym scoreboards now in action

      SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Fans to Bullitt Central basketball and wrestling matches this season can get a clear view of the score and the game clock as the score now has new scoreboards that were installed recently.

    The effort to get the much-needed pair of LED scoreboards was driven by Side Effects, a firm that did the work of getting the generous donations in place. Doing the work for Side Effects was Renee Clifton.

    Now on each end of the gym are advertisements thanking those sponsors.

  • NB drops the hammer on Lady Tigers in third

     HEBRON ESTATES – A 28 point explosion in the third quarter blew open a tight game and the North Bullitt Lady Eagles rolled to an impressive 71-50 victory over visiting Fern Creek on Wednesday.

    North Bullitt only had a 30-24 lead at halftime but then came out and outscored the Lady Tigers 28-10 in the third period.

    The contest was the first for North Bullitt since a Christmas trip to Florida during which the green and gold went 2-1, capping off a 5-1 streak in the teams’ two holiday events.

  • East, North tied in rankings for the Girls’ LIT

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Just how close are the girls’ basketball teams at Bullitt East and North Bullitt this season?

    Just say really close.

    After the two teams had played 28 games this season, they were tied with identical Litkenhous ratings, the computer rankings used by the Girls’ Louisville Invitational Tournament to seed the teams for the event that will be played at Bellarmine University and Christian Academy starting on Jan. 23.

  • NB comes up just short of signature win

     HEBRON ESTATES – The North Bullitt Eagles were leading by seven points with seven minutes to play on Tuesday against a very good West Jessamine team, but the Eagles couldn’t seal the deal, falling 52-47.

    West Jessamine came into the game averaging over 80 points a contest in building a 9-1 record. Just the week earlier, the Colts had twice scored 90 points and then beat Bullitt Central 74-38 in the championship game of the Henry County Invitational.

    The contest was the first for the Eagles since they went 1-2 on a holiday trip to Florida.

  • BC’s Ijames signs with IUS to continue baseball career

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – Sometimes when it comes to picking a college destination who you know can be an important point.

Recently it all became official with the powerful NAIA program when Ijames signed all the necessary paperwork in a ceremony in the Bullitt Central Media Center.

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After the Republic Bank Boys’ Louisville Invitational Tournament announced shrinking the event field from 20 to 16 teams and after being ranked 14th in the original SETH rankings, the format used for selecting the 16 teams, the Bullitt East Chargers easily made the field in the final call, earning the number ten seed.

    With the seed, Bullitt East will play the final game of the first-round when they take on seventh-seeded Pleasure Ridge Park on Tuesday, Jan. 9 at 8:15 p.m. at Valley High School.

  • Cougars finish second at Henry Co. tourney

      NEW CASTLE – It’s not often that you can find a coach after a game in which his team lost by 36 points in a championship game of a traditional tournament and had that coach smiling and content with his team.

    But that was the case on Friday with Bullitt Central head coach Jessie Curry who actually has had a lot to be pleased with over the first five weeks of the regular season. He was in no mood after the championship game of the Henry County Invitational to led a 74-36 setback to a strong West Jessamine team take away from the start of the season.

  • Lady Eagles get to unwind in Florida

     HEBRON ESTATES – Area high school basketball teams seldom know what they are going to get on holiday trips out-of-state other than some better weather, a chance to ‘bond’ for the second half of the season and to get a chance to unwind.

    That was certainly the case for the North Bullitt Lady Eagles last week as they traveled to Pensacola for three games in the Innisfree Hotels Pensacola Beach Tournament. The host high school was hosting concurrent boys’ and girls’ tournaments and had teams from just about every southern state.
