  • 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.

  • Lady Chargers get road win

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – It was a lighter than normal weekend of local basketball as the only girl/boy doubleheader was on Friday at North Bullitt with the Eagles and Lady Eagles taking on Holy Cross.

    Saturday – Boys

    Marion County 80, Bullitt East 68

    On Saturday, Bullitt East went on the road to Campbellsville to take part in the Clem Haskins Classic at Taylor County High School.

  • Cougars win two plus get Tatum back in fold

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The Bullitt Central Cougars picked up two more victories last week, but the biggest get of the week might have been the return of junior guard Tyler Tatum to the team for the Thursday game against Collegiate.

    Tatum was the team’s leading scorer a year ago at 14.6 points and was an All-Bullitt County selection. However, Tatum had been away from the team for more than a month as he worked on issues not related to basketball. He then missed the first three games of this season before practicing and playing last week.

  • Trojans draw first blood in 23rd District wars

     OKOLONA — For the first three quarters, North Bullitt head coach Alex Young was feeling pretty good.

    Going against a very athletic and tall Southern Trojan team and leading a team with no seniors, entered the final frame down just 53-49.

    And when Ron Still went in for a drive, the visiting Eagles trailed by just 54-53 with 4:40 to go.

    However, the home team would spend most of the final four minutes driving and getting to the foul line and Southern opened the district season with a 69-57 victory.
