Consider it status quo when sectionals come
This is our second look at where Hamilton County schools will play in next year's state tourna-ments, and a peak at their prospects.

Reclassification determines how teams are distributed for tournament play for the next two years.

Coaches, athletic directors, players, and fans look upon the release of these IHSAA rosters with genuine anticipation. But really, does realignment move a team any closer to success?

Guest Column
Every year for my birthday, my Grammie would hand me a present. On top in a separate envelope was a birth-day card; on an inside panel a gushy sentiment. It was always signed "Love, Grammie".

Even though I knew the present was from my grandmother, my Mother always made me read the card before opening the box. Mom wanted me to appreciate the sentiment before getting lost in the excitement of the package.

Sometimes the wait was worth it. Sometimes it was a letdown.
