  • North Bullitt stumbles in OT to Cougars

     HEBRON ESTATES — There was no way to sugarcoat it. The North Bullitt locker room was full of disappointed players and coaches on Friday night.

    The Eagles (2-3) had just suffered a 70-66 overtime loss to the Holy Cross Cougars.

    But first-year Eagle head coach Alex Young said that his young team is continuing to make progress.

    “I liked our start,” Young said of getting off to a 9-0 advantage. “But we let off.”

  • Lady Eagles get the best of Holy Cross

     HEBRON ESTATES — In facing a regular participant in the Sixth Region tournament, North Bullitt head coach David Marion knew his team would get a good battle on Friday night.

    Despite a few lulls in play, the Lady Eagles had no problems with the Holy Cross Cougars in its 50-34 victory.

    Marion felt his team’s defensive play was outstanding for most of the contest. The host team jumped out to a 9-0 lead.

    Five different players scored in the first quarter with Lexie Mouser ended the stanza with a three-pointer at the buzzer.

  • Lady Chargers get road win

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – It was a lighter than normal weekend of local basketball as the only girl/boy doubleheader was on Friday at North Bullitt with the Eagles and Lady Eagles taking on Holy Cross.

    Saturday – Boys

    Marion County 80, Bullitt East 68

    On Saturday, Bullitt East went on the road to Campbellsville to take part in the Clem Haskins Classic at Taylor County High School.

  • 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.

  • Preston wins second title at Franklin-Simpson

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Former Bullitt East head football coach Doug Preston continues to find success as the head coach at Franklin-Simpson High School in south central Kentucky.

    This past weekend, at Kroger Field at the University of Kentucky, Preston led his Wildcat team to its second consecutive Class 4-A state championship with a 14-12 victory over Johnson Central.
