A Scheduling “Nightmare”

With unusual winter weather that seems nonstop this year in Indiana, many high schools have been forced to cancel games and even practices. For athletic directors, trying to reschedule all of the games and meets is becoming a “nightmare” and more severe winter weather is expected. Here is a list of rescheduled games for Henry County schools that I have so far:

1-30: Hauser at Knightstown 6 PM (Girls)
2-10: Northeastern at Knightstown 6 PM (Boys)
2-12: New Palestine at New Castle 6 PM (Boys)
2-15: Knightstown at Edinburgh 12 PM (Boys)
2-25: Hauser at Knightstown 6 PM (Boys)

If there are any additions or changes, I’ll post them as soon as possible.

Website updated…finally.

After having some technical issues with the kwgproductions.com website, it is finally back up and running. The only issue that is still exists is access to the 2013 World Series broadcasts. iHigh has redone their website the week following the tournament, so it’s possible that they could have been lost during their website changing process. We’ll continue to try to fix this issue. The rest of the website is back to normal.
