  • NB girls get the jump on BC

     HEBRON ESTATES – The top two teams in the 23rd District showed that it will be a dog fight for the next three months after North Bullitt needed a strong effort to finally put away arch-rival Bullitt Central 68-56 in the first of two meetings in the regular season between the programs.

    North Bullitt led throughout the last three quarters, but Bullitt Central did get within two points early in the third quarter and it was still a single digit difference in the final minute of the third quarter.

  • Butler shuts down BE scorers in...

     SHIVLEY – Despite finishing the first half on a 13-3 run to take the lead, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers could not continue that performance in the second half on Tuesday, dropping a 78-65 decision to Butler in a game of young and talented teams.

         In the pre-season, the Sixth Region coaches tabbed Butler as the favorite with Bullitt East second. The state coaches ranked Butler seventh in the state while the Lady Chargers stood 22nd.

  • Cougars collect huge win over...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – As December games go, the Bullitt Central Cougars couldn’t have picked up a more important win on Wednesday when they rolled past Southern 61-42.

         The win was the first for the Cougars over Southern since the two schools shifted to the 23rd District. In each of the past two seasons, Bullitt Central has had to play the ‘feed-in’ game in the district tournament (beating Evangel twice) and then taking on the number one seed in the semi-finals.

  • Chargers pull away from late...

     SHIVLEY – The Bullitt East Chargers had opened the season with three consecutive wins, but the questions persisted about the level of competition

         That all changed on Wednesday, as the red and gold traveled to Dixie Highway for a showdown with Sixth Region rival Butler. Questions answered. Bullitt East put together another strong performance, pulling away late to beat the Bears 66-54.

  • Scoring down, but Lady Eagles...

     HEBRON ESTATES – After not playing the previous weekend because of bad weather, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles almost lost another game on Tuesday of last week when school was called off again.

         However, this time conditions improved enough in the afternoon that Oldham County opted to make the trip to Bullitt County for a game. It turned out to wrk in North Bullitt’s favor as the green and gold hung on to claim a 63-61 victory.

  • East’s Ching headed to Wright...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Growing up, Zac Ching was a rival of players from Mount Washington as he started as a baseball player in the Fern Creek Youth program.

    Now, Ching is a teammate and his playing partners were present last Wednesday to watch the senior pitcher/infielder sign to play his college baseball at Wright State University, an NCAA Division I program in Dayton, Ohio.

    Ching had put his name on the dotted line during the early signing period in November, but this was for teammates, friends, family and coaches.

  • Wall-to-wall basketball this...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After absolutely no basketball last weekend, there will be more than enough to make up for it this weekend with a flurry of games including the Girls’ Bullitt County Challenge on Saturday at North Bullitt.

    Of course, as we learned last week, the weather can change the best-laid plans of anyone in a hurry.

    So, weather permitting, the big weekend starts on Friday when Bullitt Central pays a visit to North Bullitt for a girl/boy doubleheader that will start at 6 p.m.

  • Football honors abound for three...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON - Football honors are rolling in for area coaches and players after a successful season for the area teams.

    The honors came from the Kentucky Football Coaches Association.

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The first and only meeting between two old rivals went to Bullitt East on Monday as the Chargers turned back visiting North Bullitt 84-58 in a boys’ high school clash.

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – In a pair of matches last week, the Bullitt Central bowling teams came up just short as they dropped both matches.
