  • Moore changes but BC still has...

     LEXINGTON – For a team that doesn’t focus a lot on winning, the Bullitt Central Co-Ed Cheerleading program sure does win a lot.

    The Lady Cougars made it back-to-back KHSAA Kentucky State Co-Ed Cheerleading Championships last Saturday at the Alltech Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park when the 18-member squad put together a routine with no mistakes to post a score of 89.9 (on a 100 point scale) to beat runner-up Graves County that had 87.4 points and third place finisher McCracken County with 86.7 points.

  • BE’s trophy case bulges with...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON—Another year, another win for the Bullitt East Cheerleaders.

    For the sixth year in a row, Bullitt East came out on top in the All-Girls Super Division of the KHSAA State Competition.

    Not willing to let the excitement of the past five wins wear them out, the girls focused on the motto “recharge” to keep them motivated throughout the season.

  • Mixed results for NB teams

     HEBRON ESTATES – It was a mixed bag of results early last week for the North Bullitt Eagles and Lady Eagles.

    Coming off back-to-back overtime losses in the two previous games, the North Bullitt boys’ team suffered another tough loss on Tuesday, traveling into Jefferson County and falling at Iroquois 66-61. On the same court three nights earlier the green and gold had lost an overtime game to Manual.

  • Cougars sweep past district foe...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – It was home sweet home for the Bullitt Central basketball teams on Tuesday as both the Cougars and Lady Cougars picked up important 23rd District victories over Moore.

    The boys’ game was a clash of Sixth Region contenders and it took an overtime period before Bullitt Central came away with a 58-48 victory over the Mustangs.

    This was the first meeting between the two teams since Bullitt Central beat the Mustangs 58-45 in last year’s 23rd District final.

  • Lady Chargers start fast over...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The start was nearly flawlessly and the Bullitt East Lady Chargers never looked back on Wednesday as they cruised past Sixth Region rival Pleasure Ridge Park 65-32.

    The game really wasn’t as close as the final score would indicate. The red and gold were up 42-12 at halftime and two baskets into the second half pushed the lead to 35 points, triggering a running clock for the rest of the game. Bullitt East’s lead actually never exceeded 35 points, but once the running clock starts, it continues even if the margin falls below 35.

  • East Running Club completes...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The East Running Club just completed another season of cross-country at the elementary level under head coach Kenny Hughes.

    Hughes, who is the boys’ cross-country coach at Bullitt East, runs the East Running Club program along with Bullitt East girls’ head coach Lenny Raley. At the East Running Club, Hughes has the elementary age runners while Raley works with the middle school runners.

    According to Hughes, the elementary program had 52 runners this season from the four schools in the Mt. Washington area.


     HEBRON ESTATES -- Friday night’s Girl/Boy basketball doubleheader at North Bullitt against Holy Cross was a ‘yellow out’ event to raise awareness of Spina Bifida.

    North Bullitt sold yellow T-shirts for the game for #teamluke.

    Luke is the young son of Dennis and Casey Bannon who was born with Spina Bifida.

    Luke was the team’s captain for the game and shared high-fives during the starter introductions.

  • North Bullitt stumbles in OT to...

     HEBRON ESTATES — There was no way to sugarcoat it. The North Bullitt locker room was full of disappointed players and coaches on Friday night.

    The Eagles (2-3) had just suffered a 70-66 overtime loss to the Holy Cross Cougars.

    But first-year Eagle head coach Alex Young said that his young team is continuing to make progress.

    “I liked our start,” Young said of getting off to a 9-0 advantage. “But we let off.”

  • Lady Eagles get the best of Holy...

     HEBRON ESTATES — In facing a regular participant in the Sixth Region tournament, North Bullitt head coach David Marion knew his team would get a good battle on Friday night.

    Despite a few lulls in play, the Lady Eagles had no problems with the Holy Cross Cougars in its 50-34 victory.

    Marion felt his team’s defensive play was outstanding for most of the contest. The host team jumped out to a 9-0 lead.

    Five different players scored in the first quarter with Lexie Mouser ended the stanza with a three-pointer at the buzzer.

  • Lady Chargers get road win

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – It was a lighter than normal weekend of local basketball as the only girl/boy doubleheader was on Friday at North Bullitt with the Eagles and Lady Eagles taking on Holy Cross.
