Schools hosting districts will now receive an additional $50 per game. Schools hosting regionals will receive $75 per game, increasing the game-day reimbursement total of $392,468 by around $78,000. Additionally, the OSSAA reimburses around $385,000 for other expenses to schools during the basketball playoffs.
That was just one change the board approved among others.
*The OSSAA reimbursed $470,643 to schools in the football playoffs this past season.
*Enduro Timing was awarded the contract to run timing services in the spring's state track championships. The former company, Precision Timing, is no longer in business.
*The board of directors has elected to record votes in a roll-call fashion starting at March's meeting. The OSSAA has come under fire the past few months from the Oklahoma legislature for not following that procedure.
MUSTANG CHEERLEADER RELEASED, DOING WELL
Mustang freshman cheerleader Kailee James, who was injured Friday night during the Mustang-Edmond Santa Fe boys basketball game, was released from the hospital with no injuries Saturday morning, according to the Mustang Times.
James was injured when she landed awkwardly on her head while performing during a timeout. The game was stopped for 45 minutes while Mustang administrators and medical personnel tended to her on the court.
Before she left the gym, she was said to be moving all of her limbs, and the ambulance took her to the hospital as a precautionary measure.
