  • PREP WRESTLING: Landscape could...

    The landscape of high school wrestling in the Bluegrass could be changing over the next few years.

    From talk of splitting the state into two divisions based on enrollment to moving the state tournament away from Frankfort, changes could be inevitable.

    The biggest change – creating two classes – has been a hot-button issue for the last few years. But the motion has picked up steam since Louisville Trinity, a Class 6-A school in football, has won the last two state championships.

    LEXINGTON Beating the Kentucky Wildcats means something special to coaches and players who hail from the state, but go elsewhere. Maybe they felt snubbed or maybe they realize what wins over a storied program like Kentucky mean.

    If you think it doesn’t happen, look at Exhibit A from Tuesday night at Rupp Arena.

    With Mississippi State leading by five points in the closing seconds of the first half, a bizarre turn of events changed the complexion of the game and caused Bulldogs coach Rick Stansbury to lose his cool.

  • MIDDLE SCHOOL BASKETBALL: T.K....

    Even though he was in foul trouble, Cody Bridges knew the T.K. Stone Panthers were counting on him Tuesday night.

  • PREP BASKETBALL ROUNDUP: Lady...

    Lyndsay Whitlock and the LaRue County Lady Hawks can cross one of their preseason goals off the list.

    The homestanding Lady Hawks (23-3) broke the record set by the 1994-95 team, which went 22-8 and reached the 5th Region Tournament semifinals.
