     HEBRON ESTATES – After losing for the first time this season last Saturday, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles have bounced back with a vengeance, winning four straight games to reach the championship game of the Franklin Family Chevrolet Holiday Classic at Nelson County on Tuesday.

  • 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.

    On Saturday, Bullitt Central could not handle the pressure of Walton-Verona and lost 69-54 in Spencer County’s Salt River Electric Holiday Classic, a one-day ‘showcase’ event with a number of teams taking part.

  • 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.

    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.

  • Eagles nab golden game on Sunday

     Being in the right place at the right time with a perfect record never worked out better for a team than the North Bullitt Eagles this week as the green and gold have added a game on Sunday against Paul VI High School, a team out of Virginia that includes University of Louisville signee V.J. King.

    The game will be played at Fairdale High School starting at 4 p.m. on Sunday.

  • Bullitt East repeats as state cheer champs

     LEXINGTON -- For the second year in a row, the Bullitt East cheerleaders took home the gold, placing first in the All-Girls Super Division of the KHSAA State Competition last weekend.

    After 17 seniors graduated last year, new head coach Jeff Schaber said the girls’ constant hard work and drive to be the best is what caused them to win.

    “This team is driven to be a champion,” said Schaber, who previously served as the team’s choreographer for five years before becoming head coach this year.

  • Eagles hold off BC’s rally for 76-71 win

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The North Bullitt Eagles didn’t have their best night shooting the ball from the perimeter, but the green and gold did plenty of other things right on Friday as they traveled south on Preston Highway and beat arch-rival Bullitt Central 76-71.

    The victory was the fifth in a row for the Eagles to start the season and by far the most competitive. North Bullitt had been averaging 83 points a contest and had won the four previous games by at least 15 points.

  • Lady Eagles get the best of BC

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Holding Bullitt Central to just two baskets in the middle of the game, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles were in complete control as they got the best of the Lady Cougars by a 64-35 count.

    The win was the fifth in a row to start the season for the Lady Eagles. Even more importantly, this season, this first meeting is the outcome that will be used for the seeding process for the 23rd District Tournament in late February. North Bullitt has won four straight district titles and they are obviously the team to beat again this winter.
