Changes coming to a sports section near you

Look for a series of changes to be implemented in The News-Gazette Sports section in upcoming days.

The weekly football statistical leaders, for years a staple on the Thursday scoreboard, will switch to the Wednesday editions starting on Sept. 2.

Starting on Sept. 9, the High School Sports Extra page, devoted to an assortment of prep notes and features, will also appear in the Wednesday section.

Most other statistical complilations were be published on the same dates as last year. For boys' soccer and girls' tennis, they will run in the Wednesday paper. For volleyball, they are set for Fridays. The Saturday lineup will include the leaders in boys' and girls' cross-country, as well as boys' and girls' golf and girls' swimming.

Some of the stats, such as football, boys' soccer and golf, will start this week. Others will be published beginning next week.

It's up to the coaches at each school to make certain we have their updated and current leaders. This information can be faxed to 217-373-7401 or emailed to

Happy reading!
