  • 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.

    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.

  • NB’s Dolan selects to attend Spalding

     On Monday, North Bullitt Lady Eagle head coach Dave Marion announced that senior guard Erin Dolan had committed to play basketball at Spalding University.

    Dolan will be part of a steady stream of Bullitt County players who have played at Spalding University for head coach Charlie Just. Dolan will join former North Bullitt standout Maria George, who is presently a member of the Lady Golden Eagles.

  • Chargers rally for big win

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – Trailing 63-57 entering the fourth quarter of the opening game of the season, the Bullitt East Chargers rallied on Tuesday to beat visiting Warren Central 86-81.

    Bullitt East pulled ahead late and the lead was only one point at 82-81 with 14 seconds to play before the Chargers secured the win late at the foul line.

    The Chargers had a 37-36 lead at halftime.

  • North has more than enough for Wildcats

      HEBRON ESTATES -- While any coach will find fault in his team’s performance, North Bullitt’s Korey Craddock had plenty of reasons to smile Tuesday evening.

    His Eagles got off to a flying start with a 78-54 victory over former Eighth Region foe Henry County.

    The homesteading Eagles would not trail after the 2:00 mark of the first quarter and placed four scorers in double digits.

  • Lady Eagles look impressive in two early wins

     HEBRON ESTATES – The North Bullitt Lady Eagles got just what they wanted from the first two games of the regular season as coach Dave Marion’s team got the best of both Assumption and Oldham County in a three-day span to open the 2015-16 campaign.

    On Tuesday, the green and gold got the best of Assumption, beating the Rockets 58-45 after pulling away from a 35-33 lead late in the third quarter.

  • Lady Cougars struggle in opener

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The first night of the regular season against Trimble County didn’t go so well for the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars, but the team bounced back two nights later and picked up win number one as they trounced Jeffersontown.

    On Tuesday, playing at home, the Lady Cougars just did not shoot the ball well. In fact, the team didn’t do very much right over the first three quarters before rallying from being ten points down with seven minutes to play to pull even at 34-34 with a minute to play.
