    The Harrison County Thorobreds wrestling team came close to winning again, but fell short as they dropped a dual match to Henry Clay, 30-43, Tuesday night.  
    The night started out slowly as the weigh-in scheduled for 6 p.m. did not take place until nearly 7 p.m. as the Henry Clay wrestlers arrived individually and sporadically.  Once the weigh-in was out of the way, the match started with the 130 pound class.  
    In this match, eighth grader Noah Mitchell was pinned by Ayoub of Henry Clay with 3:29 gone in the match.

    Bowlers split with Bourbon County Sunday
    The Harrison County bowling team split its matches with Bourbon County Sunday, but the girls’ team is coming closer to winning each week.  
    On Sunday, the Lady Colonels edged the Fillies bowlers by only a 3-4 score winning total points by only 172 pins. The Fillies took the second and fourth head-to-head matches and the first Baker’s game. They only lost the second Baker’s game by five pins or the total pins would not have mattered.
