Another Monday Morning Misc.



TAGS parking info has not been posted.  Keep an eye on the event page (here) for that.

Having to pay for admission to TAGS has ruffled a few feathers.  Ticket info here.

TSA site shows LC TAGS is scheduled for Austin in 2014.  Parking and admission costs will surely be a hot topic at this fall's TSA meeting in San Antonio.  If you're attending that, hotel info is here.

Recruiting crisis in San Antonio appears to be over, as AAAA has removed the reminder from their home page.  Catch up here.

Correction on the sponsor of the Texas Wife Carrying Championships.  Correct one here.  Catch up here.  No harm, no foul, right?

Two high school position have been reposted on the THSCA site:

Read about the Title IX fight going on in Stephenville ISD here.

Stephenville ISD has agreed to satisfy 13 of McCully's grievances with a fourth junior high girls' coach being hired and new uniforms, changes to practice schedules, changes to the school's student-athlete handbook and more on the way for 2013-14. So clearly, the school district views the grievances as a serious matter.

And because I don't believe for a second that Superintendent Dr. Darrell Floyd and Athletic Director Joe Gillespie are the type of guys who waste time fixing things that aren't broken, it's clear there were indeed violations.

The Potpourri (Tomball Edition) has named Shayne Gregson's 100 free win at the 2013 state meet as it's #2 sports story of the 2012-13 school year.  More here.

District 22-4A champion Shayne Gregson reached the UIL State Swimming Championship in Austin, and in the 100 meter freestyle, she made history. After finishing third in the preliminaries to make into the Class 4A finals, Gregson swam her way to the state championship by finishing .28 of a second ahead of Analise Diener of San Antonio Alamo Heights with a time of 51.72 in the 100 meter freestyle.

We've all gotten used to the media substituting meters for yards by now, right?
