  • Central Hoops Homecoming

    Between Friday’s games with Southern, Bullitt Central  named seniors Destiny Crump and Isaiah Miller as the 2019 Basketball Homecoming Qeen and King. Crump is the daughter of Billy and Michelle Crump while Miller is the son of Timothy and Angel Miller.

  • BC a Mann down to PRP

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Despite deciding to give leading scorer Jake Mann a little extra trim to heal a sprained ankle suffered the previous weekend in a win over North Hardin, the Bullitt Central Cougars stayed close with traditional Louisville power Pleasure Ridge Park last Tuesday.

    Bullitt Central was down 46-39 entering the fourth quarter, but then reeled off nine straight points to grab the lead with just over five minutes remaining in the game. However, the athletic Panthers rallied and managed to pull out a 59-54 victory.

  • Waggener pulls away late to beat BE 56-47

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The effort was as good as it had been at any time this season, but once more the Bullitt East Chargers could not find a way to pull out a win against one of the better teams on is schedule on Tuesday as the red and gold lost at home to Waggener 56-47.

    Just four days earlier, Bullitt East had lost a road game at Kentucky Country Day 61-56.

    The effort was a complete reversal from the KCD game to taking on Waggener, the third-seeded team in the upcoming Republic Bank Louisville Invitational Tournament.

  • Cold-shooting costs BE vs. Mercy

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – When Bullitt East junior guard Emily Ezell connected on a three-pointer to open the second half, the Lady Chargers pulled within three points of Mercy, the pre-season number one team in Kentucky after reaching the state championship game a year ago

    Unfortunately, was the high water mark for the red and gold. Ezell’s three-pointer made it 37-34 but over the next 15 minutes, Bullitt East would connect on just four more baskets.

  • East earns Girls’ LIT bid, but North comes up short

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – There was never any doubt that Bullitt East would be in the field, but there were questions over the weekend if the Lady Chargers could slide into one of the four top seeding positions for the Girls’ Republic Bank/Coca-Cola Consolidated Louisville Invitational Tournament.

    Bullitt East came up just short of that mark on Monday, earning the number five seed for the Girls’ LIT. The event will be played the week of Jan. 29 at Bellarmine University’s Knight’s Hall and Christian Academy.

  • Lady Eagles start 2019 strongly

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The North Bullitt Lady Eagles were back from Florida but still on the road Saturday as the team traveled to Central Hardin to participate in the Bluegrass New Years Bash.

    This was not a tournament, but a ‘showcase’ event that involved six teams and three games in Elizabethtown. North Bullitt took part in the final of the three games, taking on the host school. The Lady Eagles put together a strong showing and beat Central Hardin 66-58.

  • BC falls in and out of mid-season ‘funk’

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After winning ten straight games and qualifying for next week’s Boys’ Republic Bank Louisville Invitational Tournament, the Bullitt Central Cougars suddenly hit a wall, losing three straight games.

    The downward spiral didn’t start too poorly. In fact, the Cougars played well before coming up two points short against LaRue County on the Hawks’ home floor in a holiday tournament game. No problem.

  • District races heat up this week

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – A lot of how the post-season could unfold will be decided this week with key games in both the 23rd and 24th Districts.

    The annual showdown between Bullitt East and Mercy is a little earlier than normal on the schedule this winter, but that could turn out to be a blessing as it is possible the two Sixth Region rivals could meet four times over the next two months.

  • Lady Eagles run into Moore earlier than expected

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – When a coach is making plans to sign up for a holiday tournament in Florida, the last thing he is going to worry about is running into a team already on his schedule.

    Even less of a worry is battling against a team in your own district back at home.

    But those one-in-a-million chances all came together for the North Bullitt Lady Eagles in the Keswick Suncoast Classic Tournament the weekend between Christmas and New Years Day.

  • Lady Chargers fall in Florida final

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Unlike the other three local programs that went out of state for a holiday tournament, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers really did see different competition as they did not face another team from Kentucky.

    In fact, the Lady Chargers didn’t face any teams from state adjoining Kentucky as they played in the Carolina Invitational in Charleston, South Carolina.

    Bullitt East continued to play well, reaching the championship game of a second straight holiday tournament. The red and gold won two games before falling in the final.
