  • Bullitt County swimmers set for Regionals

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – By any definition, this has been a trying season for the Bullitt County swimming program as the group had to change coaches just as the campaign was getting underway.

    Still, the swimmers have put forth a strong effort over the past three months and are ready to enter post-season action this week when they will compete in the Region 2 Meet at the University of Louisville’s Ralph Wright Natatorium on Thursday with preliminaries with hopes of advancing to the finals on Friday night.

    On Friday, one of those “practice” games happened to be against Male, which is ranked in the state’s top 20 programs.

    At the end of the night, the Lady Bulldogs came away with a 76-62 victory over North Bullitt.

  • Patton hopes to be in the slot as player at next level

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – After missing almost all of his junior season with a broken foot, Bullitt Central senior Zack Patton came back with a flourish, helping the Cougars to one of their best seasons in decades as he started on both sides of the ball as a senior.

    That play drew the attention of Union College in Barbourville, Kentucky. After also looking into the programs at Hanover and Lindsey Wilson, Patton recently made it official when he signed with NAIA school to continue his football career.

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – It was raining three-pointers on Tuesday as the North Bullitt Eagles bombed visiting Evangel 101-62 in a 23rd District clash.

    With a little help from Moore 90 minutes later when they upset Southern, North Bullitt earned the top seed for the 23rd District Tournament with a 3-1 mark. If Bullitt Central defeats Evangel on Tuesday, the Cougars will also have a 3-1 mark in the district, but have a loss to the Eagles.

  • BC is not match for Manual in LIT

    LOUISVILLE – Even during the best of times, the Manual Lady Crimsons would have been a lot for the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars to handle.

On Tuesday, in the program’s first trip ever to the Republic Bank/Coca-Cola Girls’ Louisville Invitational Tournament, three starters sat on the bench in street clothes next to head coach Kyle Roach.
