  • Cougars stumble out of gate to...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Despite 29 points from junior Jacob Mann, the Bullitt Central Cougars came up short on Monday, falling to visiting Taylor County 72-65.

    The difference was a third quarter in which the Cougars scored just seven points. Bullitt Central had scored 11 straight points late in the second quarter to move ahead 31-22 and were still up 33-27 at halftime before being outscored 24-7 in the third frame.

  • Hoops on Friday? Not a given

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – There was a time not that long ago when the high school basketball season in Bullitt County was defined by Friday night girl/boy doubleheaders.

    That is no longer the case. In fact, Friday night is not always a basketball night for many area programs this season.

  • Lady Cougars older and stronger...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The Bullitt Central Lady Cougars were a work in progress last season – a very early work in progress.

    With injuries and graduation and transfers, last year’s team had almost no varsity experience when the season began. Plus, most of the players were young, some so young they were still in middle school.

    Now, the Lady Cougars are a little older and little wiser, but actually still quite young, just not as young.

  • Cougars ready to join ‘elites’...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The Bullitt Central Cougars are starting to come into focus as the 2018-19 basketball season gets underway for the maroon and gray tonight at home.

    After a strong finish to the end of last season, including a 23rd District championship, the Cougars felt they knew exactly where they stood entering this season with all five starters returning.

    North Bullitt posted a 24-9 record a year ago and reached the championship game of the Sixth Region Tournament for the first time in program history before losing to eventual state runner-up Mercy 64-48.

  • Sander resigns as BE football...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – After three seasons at the helm, Mark Sander stepped down last week as the head coach at Bullitt East.

    Sander took over after the five-year run of head coach Darrell Vincent, but Sander was never able to improve a program that has had just two winning seasons since playing for the state championship in 2008 under Doug Preston. Sander steps down after posting a 10-23 overall mark.

  • Mount Washington Community Park...
