    After a few years apart, the Nelson County and Thomas Nelson High School wrestling programs are joined at the hip yet again.

    Josh Conder, who headed up Thomas Nelson’s program the past three years, agreed to bring both programs back under the same umbrella after longtime Nelson County coach Nick Ackley left to head up the Bullitt Central program.

    “This was brought up about 10 days before school went back (in the fall),” Conder said. “I had kind of debated myself if I was going to be back in coaching again.”
