  • Central rallies late to beat East in OT

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- For any coach, the roller-coaster ride of momentum can cause you to pull your hair out, yell at officials or look at your assistants for answers.

    On Friday, Bullitt Central coach Shane Popplewell saw his team play some of its best ball of the season. But he also saw things that he will use in practice as teaching moments.

    But, in the end, he was all smiles as his Bullitt Central Cougars fought back to defeat Bullitt East 65-64 in overtime.

    The Friday meeting was the first between the two rivals in Shepherdsville since 2014.

  • BE girls drop two close games against top teams

     LOUISVILLE – Over the past several years, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers have become a regular in the Raatz Fence/O’Shea’s Classic at Mercy High School, a two-day ‘showcase’ event that includes some of the best teams in Kentucky as well as several top teams from outside the state.

  • Chargers late rally comes up just short...again

     FERN CREEK – Bullitt East fans had seen this movie before.

    This season.

    Sometimes it has ended well. Other times not so well.

    On Tuesday at Fern Creek, the outcome was not what Charger fans had hoped for as the red and gold came up short by a 61-58 count to 24th District rival Fern Creek.

  • Big third quarter propels BE girls past Fern Creek

     FERN CREEK – The first of quite possibly three meetings over the next month went to the Bullitt East Lady Chargers on Tuesday as they pulled away in the second half and beat 24th District rival Fern Creek 74-53.

    This meeting was the one that goes into the record book for the seeding of the post-season district tournament. It now seems certain that the Lady Chargers, with the number two seed, will meet Fern Creek in the 24th District semi-finals. Mercy has the number one seed.

  • Lady Eagles back to winning ways

     SHEPHERDSVILLE — When your team knocks down 13 three-pointers, it is probably going to be a pretty good night.

    For the North Bullitt Lady Eagles, it was an excellent night as they defeated Bullitt Central 75-39.

    Head coach David Marion was a little worried when point guard Katie Milby got two fouls within the first two minutes of play. However, it was a night where the bench came through in a big way.

  • Eagles turn the tables on Cougars 62-57

     SHEPHERDSVILLE — It didn’t matter in the district tournament seeding.

    But it was a tournament-like atmosphere inside Bullitt Central’s gym on a Tuesday night. 

    North Bullitt vs. Bullitt Central. That is all that needs to be said.

    At the end of the hotly-contested contest, it would be North Bullitt avenging an earlier loss by defeating the Cougars 62-57.

  • Big Friday for hoops

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- The Big House will be rocking on Friday when Bullitt East pays a visit to Bullitt Central for the first time since 2014.

    The two teams did not play during the regular season for four years before the series was renewed last year with a single game in Mount Washington.

    The old home-and-home series between the two rivals is not in the cards so this will be the only meeting between the two rivals this season.

    Bullitt East beat the Cougars 57-47 a year ago when the series was restarted with a game in Mount Washington.

  • Lady Cougars run winning streak to four games

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – It was a perfect…and long….week for the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars last week as the maroon and gray won two more games at the end of the week, on Thursday and Friday, to push the program’s winning streak to four games.

    Earlier in the week, on Monday and Tuesday, the team had picked up two more wins. The four game winning streak is the longest for the Lady Cougars since the program opened the 2014-2015 season with four straight wins.

  • Wrestling recap...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The Bullitt East Chargers competed in a pair of events last week with some positive results.

    On Wednesday of last week, the team traveled to North Oldham and wreslted a pair of Oldham County teams. The Chargers came out on the short end of a 39-19 decision to North Oldham, but picked up a 45-30 win over South Oldham.

    Three days later, the Chargers were back in Oldham County, this time in PeeWee Valley to compete at South Oldham in the Dragon Invitational.

  • Lady Chargers celebrate HC in style

     MOUNT WASHINGTON  — Chris Stallings loves when his team moves the ball.

    And he really likes when the defense disrupts the opposition.

    On Friday, Stallings couldn’t find a lot to fault in a 57-37 victory over the Central Yellow Jackets.

    “We shared the basketball tonight,” said Stallings after his Bullitt East Lady Chargers 13-5 on the season. “We had 20 field goals and 16 assists. That’s good.”
