  • Weather delays state wrestling meet for three weeks

    A week’s worth of winter weather has postponed the state wrestling competition, which was scheduled to take place in Lexington this past weekend.

    The Kentucky High School Athletic Association announced it would postpone the competition late last week citing high snow totals in different parts of the state and the “safety and welfare” of everyone involved.

    The state meet will now take place March 9-11, still scheduled at the Alltech Arena in Lexington.

  • Lady Mustangs struggle against region foe

    The score suggested otherwise, but Thursday’s game between Shelby County and the Lady Mustangs left much to be desired by both coaching staffs.

    The Lady Rockets (23-50, one of the top teams in the 8th Region, easily dispatched North Oldham (14-12) on its home court, 58-31, to assert itself as one of the few teams that could win the region in a few weeks.
