  • Central survives late NB rally

     HEBRON ESTATES – Leading by 15 points early in the fourth quarter, the Bullitt Central Cougars had to withstand a late North Bullitt surge to claim a 61-53 victory over the Eagles in the first regular season meeting between the two rivals this season.

    The product on the court might not have been as high as fans had expected, but as is so often the case in the big intra-county battles, the emotional level never seemed to level off.

  • North girls shoot down Central

     HEBRON ESTATES – Raining down 11 three-pointers, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles picked up an important 23rd District win on Friday as they surged past visiting Bullitt Central 66-47 in girls’ basketball action.

    The contest was pretty much how the first few weeks of the regular season has gone for both teams.

  • Lady Charger event ranks among state’s elite girls’ tourneys

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – All six local high school basketball programs will be in special holiday events that will start on Wednesday or Thursday with all six events ending on Saturday.

    After Christmas five of the six area teams will be back in action in holiday tourneys before returning to regular season play early in the new year.

    The only local event is the major Queen of the Commonwealth Tournament at Bullitt East. The 16-teams, four-day event starts on Wednesday.

  • Mixed results for NB teams

     HEBRON ESTATES – It was a mixed bag of results early last week for the North Bullitt Eagles and Lady Eagles.

    Coming off back-to-back overtime losses in the two previous games, the North Bullitt boys’ team suffered another tough loss on Tuesday, traveling into Jefferson County and falling at Iroquois 66-61. On the same court three nights earlier the green and gold had lost an overtime game to Manual.

  • Lady Chargers start fast over PRP; Boys’ fall

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The start was nearly flawlessly and the Bullitt East Lady Chargers never looked back on Wednesday as they cruised past Sixth Region rival Pleasure Ridge Park 65-32.

    The game really wasn’t as close as the final score would indicate. The red and gold were up 42-12 at halftime and two baskets into the second half pushed the lead to 35 points, triggering a running clock for the rest of the game. Bullitt East’s lead actually never exceeded 35 points, but once the running clock starts, it continues even if the margin falls below 35.

  • Cougars sweep past district foe Moore at home

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – It was home sweet home for the Bullitt Central basketball teams on Tuesday as both the Cougars and Lady Cougars picked up important 23rd District victories over Moore.

    The boys’ game was a clash of Sixth Region contenders and it took an overtime period before Bullitt Central came away with a 58-48 victory over the Mustangs.

    This was the first meeting between the two teams since Bullitt Central beat the Mustangs 58-45 in last year’s 23rd District final.

  • BE’s trophy case bulges with fifth straight crown

     MOUNT WASHINGTON—Another year, another win for the Bullitt East Cheerleaders.

    For the sixth year in a row, Bullitt East came out on top in the All-Girls Super Division of the KHSAA State Competition.

    Not willing to let the excitement of the past five wins wear them out, the girls focused on the motto “recharge” to keep them motivated throughout the season.

  • Moore changes but BC still has winning touch

     LEXINGTON – For a team that doesn’t focus a lot on winning, the Bullitt Central Co-Ed Cheerleading program sure does win a lot.

    The Lady Cougars made it back-to-back KHSAA Kentucky State Co-Ed Cheerleading Championships last Saturday at the Alltech Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park when the 18-member squad put together a routine with no mistakes to post a score of 89.9 (on a 100 point scale) to beat runner-up Graves County that had 87.4 points and third place finisher McCracken County with 86.7 points.

  • 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.
