Jim Seay, 77, was the 'Voice of Midlands High School Sports'
The State
For decades, Jim Seay's tenor underscored the finest moments of many high school athletes' careers. Seay's long and distinguished career as a sports journalist and radio personality ended when he died unexpectedly. The 77-year-old was an institution unto himself — his Jim Seay Productions company putting out a radio show from the studio in his Irmo, S.C., home. He served as announcer for seven Gamecocks sports teams for more than 20 years, announcer for Newberry College football, and has been the announcer for S.C. High School League football and basketball championship events for about 40 years.

Once nearly forgotten, pole vault springs back
The Baltimore Sun
About 10 years ago, the National Federation of State High School Associations made rule changes regarding landing pits that left many illegal. Shortly after the rule change, team points stopped being awarded for the pole vault at the state meet, though individual champions were still crowned. However, things slowly began to change. Girls started competing in the pole vault, and when some found success, others followed. Eventually, the sport that had been left for dead began to revive itself.

Yes, kids are stars on the playing field, but can they do a pushup?
St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Eric Lay, the head trainer at Mary Institute and St. Louis Country Day School, loves to see student athletes succeed, but he and fellow trainers aren't always impressed with fastballs or hat-tricks. They're more concerned about whether the athletes can do a decent pushup without their body undulating like a worm. Can they do leg lunges without flailing their arms, wobbling or falling to one side? Are they able to touch their toes? In a nutshell, trainers want to know whether these kids really know how to properly and safely move, and later, can they add strength to those established movements?
