KHSAA creates championship weekend for most fall sports

Championships in most fall sports will be contested on the same weekend beginning in 2013 under a measure approved today by the KHSAA Board of Control.

Champions will be crowned on the same November Saturday in five of the eight fall sports — boys and girls cross country, boys and girls soccer and volleyball — beginning Nov. 9, 2013. The football and boys and girls golf championships will not be included.

It was only a few years ago that the KHSAA began taking pains to ensure that its championship weekends in each season were staggered whenever possible — for example, volleyball, soccer and cross country championships have been held on consecutive weekends — but KHSAA commissioner Julian Tackett said today in a press release that he thinks this format will work well.

The KHSAA board also approved a standard time for mandatory water breaks in soccer games when those breaks are required when the heat index is at least 95 degrees. The breaks will fall at the 20-minute mark of each half and will last for 10 minutes.

Pardue named Garrard boys basketball coach

Dennis Pardue, who recently wrapped up an eight-year run at Russellville, has been named the new boys basketball coach at Garrard County, the Advocate’s Hal Morris reports today.

Pardue has a 247-146 record in 14 seasons as a head coach at Russellville and Todd County Central. He resigned at Russellville after the Panthers’ season ended in March.

Pardue will become Garrard’s sixth coach in five seasons and its seventh coach in seven years. He already has something of a connection to the Golden Lions, as former Garrard player and coach Rusty Clark was an assistant coach under Pardue at Russellville.
