Harrison County wrestlers lose to Bourbon Co. in Dual Meet
Go 3-2 at Danville Dual Meet
The Harrison County High School wrestling team of Coach Luke Tucker traveled to Bourbon County last Wednesday and came away with a 45-30 loss to the Colonels.
One contributing factor to the loss was two weight classes where the Breds did not compete.
Winning matches for the Thorobreds were 106 lb. Michael Mattox, 113 lb. Austin Harless, 120 lb Nathan Lopez, 152 lb. Colin Coy, 160 lb. Vince Whitt, and 220 lb. Kellon Williams.
On Saturday the Thorobreds were in Boyle County for the Danville Dual Meet.
The Breds opened with a 47-33 win over the host Admirals. Conner edged Harrison County by a close 36-33 margin as an injury default with 170 lb. Brandon Williams turned the tide for the Cougars.
Montgomery County then soundly defeated Harrison County by a 57-22 total. Only 106 lb. Mattox, 145 lb. Noah Mitchell, 152 lb. Coy and 162 lb. Justin Williams won matches for the Thorobreds against the Indians.
Harrison County next soundly defeated Scott County 42-21 winning eight of the 13 matches with one double forfeit. Finally Harrison County rolled past an All Star group 60-6 to finish 3 and 2 for the meet.
Mattox, Mitchell, and Justin Williams were the only Harrison County grapplers to go undefeated for the Danville event. Coy and Kellon Williams took four of five while Lopez and Tanner Wells were three of five.
The Harrison County wrestlers are scheduled to go to Paul Laurence Dunbar for a dual meet Wednesday and then to the Conner Duals this Saturday.
Breds will play in Jock
Sutherland Classic Feb. 2
Lafayette High School will be hosting the 1st Annual Jock Sutherland Classic this year on Feb. 2. There will be a reception for Coach Sutherland and his former players from 6-7 p.m. in the Lafayette High School cafeteria. If anyone would like to attend the reception, please contact Carla Trisko at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to the reception, the Classic features three outstanding basketball games.
The Harrison County Thorobreds will face the Gallatin County Wildcats who are currently 11-4 including a win over Scott High.
Scott High owns an early season victory over Harrison County so the Breds have their work cut out for them. This game begins at 4 p.m. to be followed by Henry Clay (15-2) facing last year’s state champ Trinity (11-4) at 6 p.m. and the host Generals (9-6) battling Louisville Butler (11-6) at 8 p.m.
This is a very strong field and should provide for three outstanding basketball games. The price for the three games is $10 per person.
