  • A big second half lifts Lady Cougars to impressive win

      FRANKFORT – It has been a real roller-coaster season to this point for the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars, but they ended a flurry of holiday games on Saturday with a 52-38 victory over Belfry in the Centria Metals/Penn Station Shootout at Franklin County High School.

  • Lady Eagles end active holidays with injuries, loss

     FRANKFORT – With a patched together line-up that didn’t include the team’s two leading scorers, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles had a big job ahead of them on Saturday as they faced Lexington Lafayette in the second game of the Centria Metals/Penn Station Shootout at Franklin County High School.

    North Bullitt played hard with the short bench, but in the end it was more poor free throw shooting that cost the Lady Eagles as they dropped a 56-55 decision in overtime.

    Still, it would have been nice to have a full roster of players.

  • Free throw woes keep Lady Eagles from Florida title

     HEBRON ESTATES – The North Bullitt Lady Eagles picked up wins in the first two games of the Destin Holiday Classic Tournament last week, but an injury to senior Katie Downey kept her out of the championship game and the Lady Eagles dropped a 45-42 decision to a team from Mississippi, New Site.

    Well the injury to Downey was certainly important, but to head coach David Marion, the Lady Eagles lost for a complete different reason in that final game.

  • Possible BE/NB clash in LIT

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – A possible meeting between Bullitt East and North Bullitt in the quarter-finals could happen next week after the pairings for the 69th annual Republic Bank Louisville Invitational Tournament were announced on Friday.
