Profit at prep basketball tourney declines

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) -- Profit at the state high school basketball tourneys has declined more than $68,000.

The Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association told its Board of Control that the TSSAA had a net income of $561,228 this year, down from $629,629 a year ago.

According to The Daily News Journal, the biggest drop came in the Division I boys tourney, which had a decline of more than $50,000.

Bernard Childress, TSSAA executive director, said the tourney schedule may be changed next year.

In other postseason news, Spring Fling will remain in Murfreesboro through at least 2014. The spring sports state championships were already scheduled to take place in the Middle Tennessee city next year, but received a two-year extension during the organization's Board of Control meeting.
