Quick hits: IHSA offers uniform waivers

BLOOMINGTON – The Illinois High School Association will allow schools to secure waivers for illegal basketball uniforms by completing the "Basketball Uniform Waiver Request Form" that is available online in the IHSA Schools Center.

Officials have notified the IHSA of several schools whose uniforms do not currently comply with National Federation of State High School Association rules. As a result, the association has instituted a waiver process that allows schools to use their illegal uniforms for the remainder of this season, including the state tournament series, without penalty.

First-team girls' soccer capsules

Meet the first team:

Donley a shoe-in for best soccer player

MAHOMET – It is perhaps a bit ironic that The News-Gazette's Area Player of the Year in soccer doesn't want anyone coming near her feet.

Mahomet-Seymour junior Kelsie Donley has a thing for shoes, and her self-described obsession played itself out one day when an unsuspecting freshman tapped her on the foot and said, "Hey, great job!" after a game.

Short-handed Tigers fall

CHAMPAIGN – What happened to Urbana keeper Aubrey Morse a couple weeks ago was a fluke.

After loss, M-S looking to next year

CHAMPAIGN – On another day, it might have been good enough.

But for the Mahomet-Seymour girls' soccer team, Wednesday's effort came up just short.

M-S soccer advances

MAHOMET – Mahomet-Seymour's Bulldogs know heartbreak.

Two years ago, the M-S girls' soccer team lost to Charleston in a penalty-kick shootout in the regional final. Last spring, Centennial edged the Bulldogs on their home field in the championship match.
