    I don’t believe everyone always has to follow the crowd - if I did, I would not be a Boston Red Sox baseball fan and UNLV basketball fan living in southern Indiana.
    But when all but one athletic conference in southern Indiana follows one format for its conference track meets, perhaps the only one that does not follow that format should consider doing so.
    The Pocket Athletic, Southern Indiana Athletic, Big Eight and Blue Chip conferences all hold their girls conference track meet on Tuesday and boys meet on Thursday the week before the sectionals.
