  • BC’s Metcalf named top archery coach in Kentucky

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Bullitt Central archery coach Dustin Metcalf is not a person looking for personal accolades.

    In fact, it almost appeared as if he was blushing when Cougar athletic director John Hodges took the microphone before the awards ceremony at a recent Bullitt Central archery meet and announced to the crowd that the coach had been honored by the National Federation of High Schools as the Kentucky Boys’ Archery Coach of the Year.

  • BC track excels at Wildcat Classic

     The Bullitt Central Track team competed in the Wildcat Classic at the University of Kentucky on Saturday, January 26th. All 6 competing runners established new Personal Records and/or a school record.

    In the one mile run, Ben Stults and Jaden Hess finished with the 2nd and 3rd ranked times in the state for sophomores this year. They ran 4:49 (17th overall) and 4:56 (32nd overall). Seth Mitchell finished 55th overall with a time of 5:06. There were 135 runners total.

  • North boys’ sending big group to state bowling

     SAINT MATTHEWS – The recent Region Three Bowling Tournament turned out to be an almost perfect week for the North Bullitt boys’ program as they qualified four entries for this week’s KHSAA Kentucky State Championships which will be held at Executive Strike and Spare in Louisville.

  • Central splits pair of games

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – This has been a strong season for the Bullitt Central Cougars on the hardwood, but if there has been one negative this winter it is the fact that the team has been inconsistent.

    That concept was definitely on display over the weekend as the team went on the road Friday and scored a season low in point in losing to Christian Academy 53-32. Then just 24-hours later, back at home, Bullitt Central was much better, beating Fairdale 72-65.

  • Lady Chargers can’t hold lead in semis

     LOUISVILLE  -- In watching George Rogers Clark High play in the quarterfinals of the Republic Bank/Coca Cola Girls’ Invitational Tournament on Friday, he saw a Lady Cardinal squad that struggled from three-point land.

    So, as he devised the game plan for his Bullitt East Lady Chargers, one would not be surprised to see Stallings begin with a zone defense that would try to put pressure on the ball handers but protect the paint.

  • BC, BE claim early week wins

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – With most of the focus of high school basketball fans on the Girls’ LIT last week in Louisville, it was a thin week of games for the rest of the programs in Bullitt County not part of that event.

    Still, the Bullitt East Chargers and the Bullitt Central Cougars picked up nice victories early last week.

  • East beats Fern Creek....again

      LOUISVILLE – Second verse, same as the first.

    Meeting Fern Creek for the second time in seven days, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers got in, got out and took care of business on Tuesday, beating their 24th District rivals 71-33 in the opening round of the 47th annual Republic Bank/Coca-Cola Girls’ Louisville Invitational Tournament at Bellarmine University.

  • Lady Chargers come up big in beating Mercy

      LOUISVILLE – It might have been bitterly cold outside, but the Bullitt East Lady Chargers kept a hot-hand throughout Thursday’s impressive 66-50 victory over Mercy in the second round of the Republic Bank/Coca-Cola Girls’ Louisville Invitational Tournament.

    The win marked the second time in three seasons that Bullitt East has advanced to the weekend of the tournament. In 2017, the Lady Chargers won two games before being eliminated by eventual state champion Mercer County.

  • Bullitt East slides into LIT semifinals

     LOUISVILLE -- In his 33 years of coaching, Chris Stallings had not run across this situation.

    Ready to play in the quarterfinals of the Republic Bank/Coca Cola Girls’ Louisville Invitational Tournament on Friday, Stallings received a phone call shortly after noon.

    Due to the inclement weather overnight, the Boyd County Lady Lions would not be able to make the trip to Bellarmine University.

  • Wrestling hits the homestretch

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The final week of the regular season for all three local wrestling programs will be busy as the teams get in their final tune-ups before next weekend’s Third Region Tournament at Doss High School.
