  • BC & BE selected for boys’ LIT field

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – For the first time in history, two Bullitt County teams will take part next week in the Boys’ Republic Bank Louisville Invitational Tournament that will be played at Valley High School.

    Just as big is the news that Bullitt Central will be making its first appearance ever in the mid-season event that now involves the 16 top teams in the Sixth and Seventh Regions. With Bullitt Central in the field, all three Bullitt County schools have now played in the Boys’ LIT.

  • Eagles have a busy holiday hoops season

    HEBRON ESTATES – The overall record is not very impressive, but the North Bullitt Eagles have shown that they are better than the overall 4-12 mark the team had coming out of the holiday tournaments.

  • Ethan Atchley named new BE football coach

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – On Wednesday afternoon, Bullitt East athletic director Troy Barr announced that the school had hired Ethan Atchley to be its new football coach.

    Atchley becomes the seventh head coach in the program’s 38 years. The 29-year old has been the head coach the past five seasons at Lexington Christian. Atchley replaces Mark Sander who resigned after posting a 10-23 record in three seasons, the shortest stint of any previous coach in the program’s history.

  • 400 and Still Going Strong

     Bullitt East Lady Charger head coach Chris Stallings (left) picked up his 400th career victory when his team defeated Bowling Green in the second round of the Queen of the Commonwealth Tournament.

    The next night, Stallings, who has been the head coach for 19 years, was presented a small memento honoring the accomplishment by Bullitt East athletic director Troy Barr.

  • Lady Cougars falter before big break

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The win total has already surpassed the number from a year ago and the team’s offensive numbers are vastly improved, but there is still a lot of work to be done for the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars.

    That point was made clear just before Christmas when the maroon and gray dropped three games in two days at the Delilah Gonzales Shootout at Taylor County High School.

  • LaRue ends BC’s 10-game winning streak

     HODGENVILLE – For the first time since opening night, the Bullitt Central Cougars tasted defeat on Friday as the maroon and gray came up just short of a momentous victory as LaRue County hung on for a 52-50 win.

    The game was part of the Magnolia Bank Holiday Classic at LaRue County. The event was really not a tournament as there were six teams and each squad played three games.

  • Chargers nab third spot in Bowling Green event

     BOWLING GREEN – Opting to stay closer to home during the holidays instead of going out of state, the Bullitt East Chargers just headed a little south after Christmas, spending three days and two nights in Bowling Green, taking part in the Meijer Holiday Classic at Bowling Green High School.

    By Saturday, Bullitt East had done enough to bring home the third-place trophy, finishing with a 2-1 record.

  • Central wins Smoky Mt. tourney

     GATLINBURG, TN – The city of Gatlinburg, Tennessee really was a beautiful spot to spend a few days during the Christmas season for the Bullitt Central Cougars.

    Besides the holiday beauty of the picturesque city in the Appalachian Mountains, the Cougars got inside enough to win three games and capture a division title at the Smoky Mountain Classic the Thursday, Friday and Saturday before Christmas.

    Despite it being an out of state event, the Cougars actually beat two Kentucky teams to claim the title.

  • Lady Eagles’ ‘funk’ has team 1-2 in LaRue event

     HODGENVILLE -- The January funk has come a little earlier this season for the North Bullitt Lady Eagles.

    Veteran head coach David Marion is hoping that a trip to Florida will re-energize his Lady Eagles.

    North Bullitt finished sixth in the LaRue County Lady Hawks Holiday Classic with a 55-29 loss to Bethlehem.

    Marion didn’t want to take any credit away from Bethlehem, who might be the second best team in the Fifth Region. The Banshees are 9-1 on the season and has a roster full of experienced players.

  • BC & NB tie in wrestling

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – There was a small three-way wrestling meet last Wednesday at Bullitt Central with North Bullitt and Iroquois also taking part.

    Unfortunately, there were more forfeits than contested matches.

    In the match between Bullitt Central and North Bullitt, the final score was a 42-42 tie with only four matches in the 14 weight classes being contested. Of those four matches, Bullitt Central won three while North Bullitt took one.
