    The Kentucky High School Athletic Association has changed the venue of the wrestling state tournament.
    In a press release, the organization announced it is moving the wrestling state tournament to the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington from the Frankfort Convention Center where it has been held since 1999.
    The length of the tournament is being reduced from three days to two. The change means wrestlers will only miss one day of school instead of two, something the Kentucky Department of Education had pushed to revise.

    The resume of the returning wrestlers on the present LaRue County High School wrestling team is impressive. This team has accomplished just about everything a team can accomplish in high school sports. But the team is unsatisfied and looking to add the last missing link to the long list of accomplishments it has achieved.

    The missing link?  A KHSAA state tournament championship.

    LaRue County was represented in Saturday's KHSAA State Cross Country meet by freshman Kristina Durbin and sophomore Adam Sandidge.

    Sandidge finished 116th as a freshman.
