  • Eagles repeat Miller crown

    TAYLORSVILLE -- Battling through a tough week, North Bullitt head coach Korey Craddock would approach the Christmas break with a smile on his face.

    His Eagles had just battled a tough Spencer County team to win its second consecutive Mike Miller Classic on Wednesday night.

    His Eagles had the opportunity to play one of the top high school teams earlier in the week.

    And his Eagles will begin the second half of the season with an impressive 10-1 mark.

  • ‘Next man up’ carries East past Central

  • ‘Fun’ game produces fond memories for North

     FAIRDALE – Not many basketball teams can lose a game by 52 points and still say they had a good time and fond memories.

    The North Bullitt Eagles can do that and were on Sunday night after falling to Paul VI High School 103-51 in the Forcht Bank King of the Bluegrass Overtime event at Fairdale High School.

    North Bullitt had never played a team like Paul VI before and they may never see a team that good again. Paul VI is a private school in Fairfax, Va., that plays in the highly-competitive Washington, D.C., leagues.

  • Lady Cougars still seeking the winning hoops formula

     TAYLORSVILLE -- You’ve heard the coaching philosophy of hurry but don’t run.

    Learning that might be a homework assignment Bullitt Central Lady Cougar coach Kyle Roach might be giving out to his players.

  • Bullitt East girls start tourney play with win

     MOUNT WASHINGTON -- It is the holiday season and what better for a coach to give his players than playing time.

    And facing a outmanned Central Hardin squad in the opener of the Schmid Funeral Home Holiday Classic, Bullitt East coach Chris Stallings got extended minutes for all his players.

    The Lady Chargers led from start to finish in the 65-30 victory.

    After the game was tied 2-2, Bullitt East’s defense completely shut down the Central Hardin offense.

    The pressure led to numerous layups as 10 players hit the scoring column.

  • Vincent steps down as Chargers’ football coach

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – After 21 years in athletics at Bullitt East, first as an athlete and now as a coach, Darrell Vincent announced on Thursday that he is stepping down as the Chargers’ head football coach after five seasons.

    Vincent, who called the position his ‘dream job’ when he was promoted to the top spot in 2011, had a number of peaks and valleys during his five-year run and he leaves after posting a 29-28 overall record.

  • Rakes’ surge helps East better Waggener

    During that decisive run, it was all Bailey Rakes as the senior guard scored all 10 points as the Chargers advanced in one of the country’s most prestigious holiday tournaments.
