  • Chargers win sixth straight

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Getting 30 points from senior Tyler Sharpe and a double-double from Brandon Klefot, the Bullitt East Chargers made it six straight to open the season when they beat Cordia 65-54 on Saturday in the Central Bank Classic at Lexington Christian High School.

    Bullitt East bolted out of the gate, leading 17-9 after the first stop and then pushed the margin to 32-20 at halftime. That was more than enough for the Chargers.

  • High School Bowling Results

     The bowling season has begun for the three local high schools.

    In recent results:

    *The boys and girls competed against Pleasure Ridge Park.

    In the boys’ match, North Bullitt won 5-2.

    Wesley Parker bowled games of 221 and 247; Sylan Ebersold had a 236 game; Kyle Reed bowled a 207 and 234; Quinton Wilkins bowled a 215; Erik Grant had a 208 and a 213; Hunter Ashmore had a 180; and Trent Wood bowled a 167.

    For the JV, Connor Burton bowled a 161 and 163, while Shaun Sanders had a 208.

  • Eagles soar past another strong foe in beating Fairdale

    FAIRDALE – Just days after picking up one of the most impressive regular season wins in several years when they beat DeSales, the North Bullitt Eagles were back at it on Tuesday jumping out to an early lead and never letting up as they beat traditional Sixth Region power Fairdale 90-75.

    The start could not have been any better for the Eagles as they were up 11-0 just moments in the game fueled by a trio of three-pointers from senior Ryan Henson. For the game, Henson had a game-high 32 points with seven three-pointers.

  • Press takes toll on Lady Chargers

     SHIVLEY – Digging a big hole early in the game, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers could never recover on Tuesday, dropping a 72-52 decision to state power Butler.

    The game was supposed to be a showcase between two of the best teams in Kentucky this winter. Both teams were ranked among the top eight teams in the state in the pre-season.

    Unfortunately, that all changed when Bullitt East standout Lindsey Duvall went down after knee surgery.

  • BC rallies in third period for a district win over Evangel

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Trailing by five points at halftime, the Bullitt Central Cougars rallied on Tuesday with a big third quarter as they got the best of visiting Evangel 78-69.

    The win moved the Cougars to 3-1 overall after the first 10 days of the regular season.

    This could have been a major blow to Bullitt Central’s post-season dreams as they almost overlooked what is obviously a vastly improved Evangel squad that lost to the Cougars by 32 points a year ago.

  • Chargers hold off tough challenge from Bears

     SHIVLEY – As with many early season games, good teams have a few bumps in the road as they learn what they are and are not capable of doing.

    That was once again the case for the Bullitt East Chargers on Tuesday as they traveled into Jefferson County for the traditional early-season showdown with Sixth Region rival Butler. The Chargers started well and ended well but there were a few bumps in the middle before the red and gold secured a 76-60 win.

  • BE, BC cheer squads in state finals on Saturday

     LEXINGTON -- Familiar faces will return to the state cheerleading competition on Saturday at the Kentucky Horse Park.

    Bullitt Central and Bullitt East will field teams in a pair of divisions after winning Sixth Region honors.

    In the Super division, for the largest all-girl squads, Bullitt East will be one of 16 squads vying for a state title.

    The Charger cheer squad is slated to take the floor at Alltech Arena in Georgetown at 1:05 p.m.

    The awards for that division will be at 3:10 p.m.

  • Cougars at 2-1 suffer first loss on Saturday

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The Bullitt Central Cougars got a win at home on Friday, but then came up short on Saturday as they lost for the first time this season.

    That action left coach Joe Pat Lee’s team with a 2-1 record after the first week of the season. After a game against Evangel on Tuesday of this week, the focus for the Cougars will shift to a key 23rd District game at home on Friday against North Bullitt.

  • Wilson’s hot hand carries Chargers early

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – After a tough opening game at home against Warren Central, the Bullitt East Chargers got to flex their expansive muscles over the weekend as they picked up a pair of double-digit wins.

    On Friday, the Chargers had no trouble pulling away from visiting Martha Layne Collins. The red and gold were only up 44-33 at halftime, but then held the Titans to just 15 points in the second half en route to an 85-48 win.

  • Bombs away during 3-0 start for North

     HEBRON ESTATES – In perhaps the most impressive regular season win for North Bullitt in several years, the green and gold went to Jefferson County on Saturday and rolled past DeSales 83-37.

    The Colts are coming off a season in which they reached the championship game of the Sixth Region Tournament before losing to Doss. While the team did suffer some heavy graduation losses, they had opened the season a night earlier with a win over Holy Cross.

    North Bullitt also beat Nelson County on Friday 83-53.
