Athletic Department Blog Updates

The KHSAA Board of Control conducted its fourth regularly scheduled meeting of the 2021-22 academic year on Wednesday at the KHSAA Office and adopted the required use of UTR (Universal Tennis Rating) for Tennis beginning with the 2022 season.

The Association, along with UTR, will be scheduling a couple of Zoom meetings […]

    09/19/19 – Board Approves Next Steps for Potential Lacrosse Sanctioning

    2019-2020 News Releases

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: September 19, 2019

    The Board of Control approved a recommendation on Thursday to appoint a sport-specific focus group to study the sanctioning of boys’ and girls’ lacrosse following a survey of the membership. Earlier this month, the Association asked the designated representative for each member school to provide feedback on the possibilities of adding lacrosse as a sanctioned sport in either the fall or the spring. The membership responded positively that they would have a team and enter championship competition if the KHSAA were to conduct a spring lacrosse championship for both boys (56 votes) and girls (54 votes). Interest for a fall championship failed to meet the required 50-school threshold for further consideration.

    Following review of the survey, the Board approved a recommendation from staff to form a focus group to confirm genuine interest in schools adding lacrosse should the KHSAA sanction a spring championship, with the earliest implementation being for […]

    07/18/19 – Calendar Change for 2020 Top Seed Tennis Club/KHSAA State Tennis Championships

    Tennis Blog Updates

    During the course of its first organizational meeting of the 2019-20 academic year on July 11 in Covington, the Board of Control addressed the calendar for the 2020 Top Seed Tennis Club/KHSAA State Tennis Championships.

    After potential schedule conflicts were discovered following the scheduling of the USTA Southern Closed Tournament, the Board took action in order to accommodate participating student-athletes and prevent them from having to make a choice between participating in the Top Seed Tennis Club/KHSAA State Tennis Championships or the Southern Closed. With that goal in mind, the Board approved a recommendation to shift the state tennis dates for 2020 to June 1-3. 

    “While we never like to change event dates, we clearly need to work closely with Kentucky USTA to minimize conflicts,” said KHSAA Commissioner Julian Tackett. “We will also be working with that group and its national counterparts to see if this conflict can be avoided in the future.”

    07/11/19 – Board Finalizes Golf Format; Addresses Tennis Championships and Future of Esports

    2019-2020 News Releases

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: July 11, 2019

    The Board of Control conducted its first organizational meeting of the 2019-20 academic year on Thursday in Covington, finalizing the format of the state golf tournament while also addressing the calendar for the state tennis championships and the future of esports.

    After reviewing feedback following its earlier decision to change the team format to a four-person squad at the state tournament (which was a format of the tournament in past years), the Board of Control elected to revisit the issue at its July meeting. After significant discussion, the Board eventually settled on a final resolution to address its original concerns with the size of the field, match its boys and girls alignment, ensure all schools have an opportunity to participate in the championship regardless of squad size and complete the tournament during the mid-fall season while also addressing the team composition […]

    As regional play approaches, we would like to remind all schools of behavioral expectations to further emphasize sportsmanship in our Tennis program. High school tennis is an extension of the classroom, and as such, all involved should conduct themselves in a manner that reflects teamwork, respect, responsibility and perspective. That includes coaches, student-athletes and spectators. 

    Officials expect good behavior and will quickly penalize misconduct. To achieve this goal, all involved should:

    • Avoid unnecessary noise during play. This includes cell phones, pagers, etc.
    • Stay well away from the fence surrounding the courts so as not to distract any players or hinder any coaches.
    • Do not talk to players from the time they take the court to warm up until the match is over. This includes timeouts and set breaks.
    • Coaches, be sure to allow the Officials or opposing coaches to correct the […]

The split, necessitated by competition limitations recommended by the USTA and its sports medicine researchers, was put in place to prevent any student-athlete from participating in more than two full-length matches per day. The change also necessitated mandated play to determine a true region champion, adding additional matches to an already full competition schedule for most players.
