Notre Dame Falls Short of Championship Victory

Harrison County Schools nearly went 2-for-2 in the state finals but Notre Dame fell just short of their first championship, falling to the Man Hillbillies 12-10 in ten innings. A large senior class will be moving on. It's a group that has made steady improvement every year since 2011. Head coach Patrick Marozzi hopes the young players left behind, like sophomores and multi-year starters Jordan Miller and Josh Baker, can kept the program playing at a high level.


BHS Scores Another State Championship Victory

The scholastic sports season officially ended when Bridgeport's Logan Smith collected his eighth strikeout against Independence to cap a 5-2 state championship victory. The win secured the fifth state championship for BHS this year to go along with football, boys cross country, and both track teams. In six postseason games the Indians allowed a total of six runs, winning their first baseball crown since 2000.


Administrators Debate Summer Practice Rule

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Some high school administrators are opposed to a proposed athletics rule that would expand the voluntary summer practice period in West Virginia.

Media outlets report the Secondary School Activities Commission's Board of Control approved the change this week to include the entire summer, except for the week that includes the July 4th holiday. Previously the practice period was limited to three weeks during the month of June.

SSAC executive director Gary Ray says many sports such as football already have year-round conditioning and weightlifting, and that the proposal gives coaches the chance to work with the athletes in the summer.

Bridgeport High athletic director Matt DeMotto calls it a bad idea.

The rule now goes before the state Board of Education and must include a public comment period.
