  • Back to Back to Back National Champions

     MOUNT WASHINGTON-- For some Eastside cheerleaders, winning is all they know.

    For all three years of their middle school careers, they’ve earned the top spot in the country and will again represent the United States in the second annual International Cheer Union (ICU) Junior World Championships in April.

    “It was kind of unbelievable,” eighth grader Alex Contreras said of the win. “We worked so hard all year and then we just did our very best. That was probably our best performance there. It was really great.”

  • BE’s Messer to play football at Millikin University

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Just call Bullitt East senior Josh Messer a trailblazer.

    When the Charger senior signed to play football at NCAA Division III Millikin University in Decatur, Illinois, he became the first Bullitt East athlete to head to that school. In fact, the Big Blue did not list any football players from Kentucky on its 2017 roster.

    Actually, Messer did more of the recruiting. He signed up on an online recruiting site and was discovered by Big Blue coaches. They saw film of Messer and initiated contact.

  • DREAM SEASON ENDS: Mercy too much for North Bullitt

     VALLEY STATION – The first ever trip to a regional basketball championship game for the North Bullitt Lady Eagles ended in tears on Saturday as the green and gold fell to Mercy 64-48.

  • FOURTH in NATION
  • Early hole is more than BC can overcome

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – A little bit of a nervous start proved fatal for the Bullitt Cougars on Tuesday in the opening round of the Class Act Boys’ Sixth Region Tournament.

    Playing at home for the first time in a regional tournament in four years, the Cougars fell behind Jeffersontown 27-8 midway through the second quarter. Bullitt Central rallied to within 28-22 at halftime and when Jacob Mann drained a three-pointer to open the second half, the maroon and gray were within three points.

  • Mercy ends NB dream season in Saturday’s final

     VALLEY STATION -- A big crowd and a huge effort couldn’t  pull the North Bullitt Lady Eagles through in the Sixth Region final.

    The Lady Eagles fell to Mercy 64-48 in the championship  game Saturday at Valley High.

    Mercy jumped on top early and North Bullitt could not make a run. In fact, North Bullitt’s only lead of the game came on Hailey Free’s three-pointer to make it 5-4.

    The balanced attack of Mercy and foul troubles for the Lady Eagles were too much for North Bullitt to overcome.

  • Lady Eagles crush Doss in semi-finals

     VALLEY STATION – Winning a regional semi-final basketball game in Kentucky is never supposed to be easy or a given, but the North Bullitt Lady Eagles had that route on Wednesday as the green and gold crushed 22nd District runner-up Doss 56-22.

    The win moved the Lady Eagles into Saturday’s Sixth Region championship game, a game in which North Bullitt took on Mercy for the right to advance to this week’s Girls’ Kentucky State Basketball Tournament at Northern Kentucky University.

  • BC, NB fans get a shock from proposed football alignment

     (Football fans should note that this realignment move starts with the 2019 season. The upcoming fall of 2018 season will be played under the alignment of the past three years with the three Bullitt County teams all in the same Class 5-A, District 3 positions.)

     

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – Just when everybody felt they had a handle on football realignment for the 2019-2022 seasons, the KHSAA Board of Control threw a couple of curve balls last week when they unveiled the first proposal of the future of the sport in Kentucky.

  • THE CURSE IS OVER: North pulls away late to beat East 59-46

     HEBRON ESTATES – How Sweet It Is!

    Following 12 years of frustration that included 25 consecutive losses to their arch-rivals, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles got to savor an oh-so sweet victory on Monday, beating Bullitt East 59-46 in the opening round of the Girls’ Sixth Region Tournament.

    This was the fifth time in the past season seasons that the two Bullitt County programs had met in the regional tournament with Bullitt East winning all of those meetings including last season’s semi-final round win. 

  • Lady Eagles advance to face Doss on Wednesday

     HEBRON ESTATES – There was plenty of celebrating going on for the North Bullitt Lady Eagles on Monday after the team defeated Bullitt East 59-46 in the opening game of the Girls’ Sixth Region Tournament, but the team will need to quickly get back down to earth and back to work.

    With the win, North Bullitt advances to the semi-finals for the Sixth Region Tournament for the third straight season. The Lady Eagles will take on the Doss Lady Dragons on Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. in a game at Valley High School.
