  • Short-handed Lady Chargers still...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Nobody was mad, sad, surprised or elated on Tuesday when the Bullitt East Lady Chargers traveled to Shepherdsville for the first time since 2014 and showed the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars what it is like to be a top-15 team in the state.

    The outcome was never in doubt as the Lady Chargers jumped on top 24-5 after one quarter and the rolled up a 43-12 advantage by halftime. Midway through the third quarter the visitors pushed the margin past 35 points and the rest of the game was played with a running clock.

  • Central off to another strong...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – The first key archery tournament of the season went to Bullitt Central as the Cougars captured the NASP Region 5 event at John Hardin High School two weekends ago.

    In fact, it was a big event for Bullitt County teams overall as Bernheim took the middle school title (actually Bernheim had two teams in the event and finished first and second) while Shepherdsville and Cedar Grove finished first and second in the elementary division.

  • Local hoops teams get in final...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The final week of the regular season for the three area boys’ basketball team got off to a perfect start as each of the programs picked up an early week win.

    After games late in the week, all focus will turn to the 23rd and 24th District Tournaments that will be this week. North Bullitt and Bullitt Central will play in the 23rd District Tournament at Bullitt Central while Bullitt East will be in the 24th District event at Jeffersontown High School.

    Boys – Tuesday

  • Post-season starts Monday for...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Since the Bullitt County schools joined the Sixth Region for the 2006 post-season, there has never been as much balance in basketball as there has been this winter – especially on the boys’ side of things.

    That is what makes this week’s district play so interesting as some good teams are going to go home early. It also makes the district play important as the four district winners in the Sixth Region will each host first-round games of the Sixth Region Tournament on Monday, Feb. 25 against a district runner-up.

  • East finishes third; 14 local...

     LOUISVILLE – A total of 14 athletes from the three area programs finished among the top four in their respective weight classifications on Saturday at the Region Three Wrestling Tournament at Doss High School.

    Those 14 competitors, along with three other alternates, will advance to the Kentucky State Wrestling Championships this Friday and Saturday at the Alltech Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington.

  • Hot-shooting Chargers roll to 75...

     HEBRON ESTATES – The Bullitt East Chargers are hot.

    Smokin’ hot.

    Shooting 60 percent from the field, the red and gold put together another solid performance on Friday, rolling past North Bullitt 75-41 in a game that was not nearly as close as many had thought it would be.

    Just two weeks earlier, North Bullitt had beaten Bullitt Central by five points and then three days later the Cougars had defeated the Chargers in overtime by a single point.

  • Lady Chargers show off their...

     HEBRON ESTATES – The Bullitt East Lady Chargers have long memories.

    Really long memories.

    Coach Chris Stallings’ team remembered back almost a year to ending the previous season with a 59-46 loss to North Bullitt in the opening round of the Sixth Region Tournament, a game played on the Lady Eagle’s home floor.

    With that setback still vivid in their minds, the Lady Chargers returned to North Bullitt on Friday and this time the result was much different as Bullitt East rolled to a dominating 64-22 victory.

  • Cougars spoil the Cougars’...

     SHIVELY -- Toughness and a couple of good calls at just the right time.

    That was a winning formula for Bullitt Central Friday night in a battle of the Cougars.

    In this battle, it was the Bullitt Central Cougars defeating the Holy Cross Cougars by a 60-59 score. The game ended with a battle for the ball. And this was a 50/50 ball that the visitors would secure as the horn sounded.

  • Lincoln Memorial gets signature...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – A meeting with coaches from Lincoln Memorial University at a baseball camp paid big dividends for power hitting Bullitt East player Mason Kelley.

    The camp took place last summer and within a few months Kelley had decided that heading south to play baseball was a good idea. Lincoln Memorial is located in Harrogate, Tennessee.

    Kelley also looked at Bellarmine and McKendree before deciding to sign with the Railsplitters. By early fall, the senior knew where he wanted to play his college baseball. 

  • BE’s Hill signs to play baseball...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – It didn’t take Bullitt East senior Zach Hill very long to decide that Pikeville was the place for him and his baseball skills.

    Long before his final season of high school baseball is set to start, Hill already has all the pressure of being recruited out of the way, having signed with the school in eastern Kentucky late in the fall.
