    In past issues, I’ve called on the IHSAA to make progressive changes to adapt to today’s sports scene.

    My latest plea to the IHSAA involves the one-week sports moratorium that has been in place for years and finding ways to make it equal for all high school athletes.

    Moratorium week is defined by the IHSAA as a period where “there shall be no contact between athletes and coaches, and no athletic activities, including conditioning, conducted.”

  • Hayes switches sports, colleges

    Sports Editor

    TELL CITY—It’s not uncommon for an athlete to transfer from one college to another. But Kassidie Hayes has decided to do it before starting college and is switching sports as well.
    Hayes, a 2015 Tell City graduate, signed April 23 to be a thrower for the University of Memphis’ women’s track and field team.
    But she recently had a change of heart and decided she wanted to play volleyball in college instead.
