    For the first time in the 95-year history of the Kentucky High School Athletic Association Boys’ Sweet 16, the tournament championship game will be played sometime other than Saturday night.

    The traditional state tournament format will change for the 2013 event due to potential scheduling conflicts with Rupp Arena and the University of Kentucky men’s basketball team on Saturday, March 9.

    Trimble County High School is getting its own baseball, softball and tennis facilities.

    Previously, football players shared their field with the baseball players. This was accomplished by building a fence across the 40-yard line and then taking it down after baseball season, said Trimble County Schools Superintendant Marcia Dunaway.

    Softball players went to the middle school to practice, and tennis players went to the county park.

  • Schedule sports physicals

    The fall sports season is right around the corner. As parents and high school students look ahead to the 2012-13 school year, student athletes will need a sports physical to participate in Kentucky High School Athletic Association-sanctioned sports. The same is true for high school students in Indiana.

    The King’s Daughters’ Hospital is again asking parents to schedule a sports physical with their personal physician. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that all athletes receive a yearly checkup from their personal physician.
