  • Track: CHSAA keeps girls-only event at state meet

     AURORA – CHSAA's legislative council turned down a bid to get rid of the girls 800-meter sprint medley relay at ther state track-and-field meet.

  • CHSAA approves new transfer rule

     AURORA – There are some more teeth in the state's transfer rule for high-school students.
