The Christian County Board of Education will vote this evening on whether to allow the proposed Hoptown Hoppers Ohio Valley League baseball team to use Christian County High School's baseball field for its home games this summer. Hoppers officials are optimistic the board will approve the measure.
The Ohio Valley Conference today announced beginning with the 2012-13 season, basketball will go to divisional play. The OVC will add a 12th school, Belmont University, on July 1st. The divisions will be as follows:
East: Belmont, Eastern Kentucky, Jacksonville State, Morehead State, Tennessee State and Tennessee Tech.
West: Austin Peay, Murray State, UT Martin, Southeast Missouri, Eastern Illinois and SIU Edwardsville.
The OVC also says softball and volleyball will use schedules based on a divisional format but have not determined those sports will formally recognize divisions. Baseball, women's soccer and men's and women's tennis will not use divisional play because there are currently less than 12 participating teams.
