     BOWLING GREEN – Opting to stay closer to home during the holidays instead of going out of state, the Bullitt East Chargers just headed a little south after Christmas, spending three days and two nights in Bowling Green, taking part in the Meijer Holiday Classic at Bowling Green High School.

    By Saturday, Bullitt East had done enough to bring home the third-place trophy, finishing with a 2-1 record.

  • Central wins Smoky Mt. tourney

     GATLINBURG, TN – The city of Gatlinburg, Tennessee really was a beautiful spot to spend a few days during the Christmas season for the Bullitt Central Cougars.

    Besides the holiday beauty of the picturesque city in the Appalachian Mountains, the Cougars got inside enough to win three games and capture a division title at the Smoky Mountain Classic the Thursday, Friday and Saturday before Christmas.

    Despite it being an out of state event, the Cougars actually beat two Kentucky teams to claim the title.

  • Lady Eagles’ ‘funk’ has team 1-2 in LaRue event

     HODGENVILLE -- The January funk has come a little earlier this season for the North Bullitt Lady Eagles.

    Veteran head coach David Marion is hoping that a trip to Florida will re-energize his Lady Eagles.

    North Bullitt finished sixth in the LaRue County Lady Hawks Holiday Classic with a 55-29 loss to Bethlehem.

    Marion didn’t want to take any credit away from Bethlehem, who might be the second best team in the Fifth Region. The Banshees are 9-1 on the season and has a roster full of experienced players.

  • BC & NB tie in wrestling

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – There was a small three-way wrestling meet last Wednesday at Bullitt Central with North Bullitt and Iroquois also taking part.

       MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East Lady Chargers’ run through top-25 teams came to an end on Saturday in the championship game of the Queen of the Commonwealth Tournament on the team’s home floor.

  • Chargers force overtime on three, then get past North Hardin

     HARNED – After three relatively easy games earlier in the week, the Bullitt East Chargers had to dig deep on Saturday against North Hardin in the third game of the Cecilian Bank Classic at Breckinridge County High School.

    This event was not really a tournament as there were six teams and each team played only three games. In fact, Bullitt East did not play the host team in the event at all.

  • State cheer and dance honors

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – With the holidays upon us, this is a great opportunity to mention a few more success stories by local teams in the sports world in recent weeks.

  • Holiday tourneys resume Thursday

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The second week of holiday tournament action will get underway on Thursday of this week with five of the six Bullitt County high school teams being in action.

  • Lady Cougars nab fourth win

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – It might not have been the highest hurdle  or the loftiest of goals to accomplish, but the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars picked up a memorable win on Tuesday when the maroon and gray defeated visiting Cumberland County 43-30.

    The importance of the win was that it was the fourth of the young season for the Lady Cougars. A year ago, the program won just three games the whole season. So, this was a small, but important step forward.

    Bullitt Central had earlier recorded wins over Richmond Model, Moore and Atherton.
