  • Lady Eagles bounce the Lady Bulldogs

      HEBRON ESTATES – The North Bullitt Lady Eagles may not be playing a lot of games here early in the season, but the green and gold are making the most of the opportunities they do have when they get on the court.

    On Tuesday, head coach Dave Marion’s team played just its second game of the season, but they showed no ill effects from the light schedule in rolling past visiting Fairdale 74-46.

  • Bullitt Central falls 55-50 at Collegiate

     LOUISVILLE – Life on the road is getting old in a hurry for the Bullitt Central Cougars.

    To open the season, the Cougars will play five straight games on the road. Game four in that series came on Tuesday as the maroon and gray dropped a 55-50 decision to Collegiate.

    The setback dropped the Cougars to 1-3 overall with three straight losses.

  • Late BE rally comes up short

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – A spirited Bullitt East rally came up a point short on Tuesday as the Chargers dropped a 71-70 decision to visiting Butler in a showdown between two of the top teams in the Sixth Region.

    Butler had a 53-42 lead heading into the fourth quarter, but when seniors Grant Skaggs and Jared Osborne nailed back-to-back three-pointers to open the final frame, the home fans got excited. At the 3:22 mark, the Chargers were within 58-56, but they really could not get any closer.

  • Bearettes pull away late for win

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – It was a Clash of the Titans between two of the top girls’ basketball teams in Kentucky this season on Tuesday in Mount Washington.

    Defending state champion Butler made the trip to battle Bullitt East in what has become a traditional showdown played on the second Tuesday of the regular season.

    In the end, Butler, with an advantage in experience, pulled away from a 51-50 score at the start of the fourth quarter to win 84-72.

  • State cheer championships on Saturday

     LEXINGTON -- All three Bullitt County high school programs will be in competition this Saturday at the KHSAA State Cheerleading Championship at the Alltech Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park.

    Bullitt East will be looking to repeat as state champions in the All-Girls Super Division, the largest of the four divisions for teams with girls only. The Chargers will be in action at 3:55 p.m. and will be competing against ten other teams.

  • BC girls roll to third win

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Playing four games over the first eight days of the regular season, the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars stand at 3-1 after beating Waggener 60-35 on Monday in the first home game of the season for the maroon and gray.

    Those four games serve as a tune-up for a pair of important 23rd District games. Bullitt Central will play at North Bullitt on Friday before returning home to take on Southern on Tuesday.

  • Colts stampede past limping North Bullitt

     HEBRON ESTATES — With leading scorer Travis Dunnavan sidelined with a knee injury for at least the next few weeks, other members of the North Bullitt Eagle basketball team will have an opportunity to step up.

    And, head coach Korey Craddock would like to see several step up to the challenge.

    In its home opener, it would be Brendan Holt and Logan Steinmacher who would answer the call.

    However, they couldn’t produce enough points to defeat a very good DeSales team.

  • BC drops pair as schedule toughens

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After opening the season with a win, the road got a lot tougher for the Bullitt Central Cougars over the weekend as the young team dropped a pair of contests.

    All three of the opening games have been played on the road.

    On Friday, the Cougars were in Bardstown and despite it being close most of the way, the team dropped a 66-48 decision to Bethlehem. A night later, the athleticism levels were far apart as Valley rolled to a 72-38 win.

  • Less Deel no problem for Lady Eagles on Saturday

     SHELBYVILLE -- As concerning as it might be to have your leading scorer sitting beside you on the bench for most of the game, it is so exciting to see others step up.

    In its opener, North Bullitt head coach David Marion saw his Bellarmine University-signee Lauren Deel sitting on the bench much too much against Collins High.

    But, in the end, there was no reason for Marion to fret as the Lady Eagles were just fine in the 61-48 victory.

  • Lady Chargers battle to the end against Male

     LOUISVILLE – It was a battle between two of the state’s top teams on Friday and when the dust had finally settled it was Male that had pulled out an 81-78 victory over Bullitt East.

    Male entered the 2016-17 season ranked fifth in the state while Bullitt East was two spots behind the Lady Bulldogs.

    Male had opened the season three nights earlier by knocking off defending state champion and pre-season number one Butler by a 68-62 score. Bullitt East was to battle Butler on Tuesday night of this week in Mount Washington.
