New Rules For Athletics In Hunt County
NEW RULES FOR ATHLETICS
The schools of Hunt County met and decided upon
the following rules and regulations for the season's basketball courts
in an attempt to strictly abide by the UIL rules. The county was
divided into two sections, the south loop and the north loop. The
north loop was comprised of Floyd, Wolfe City, Commerce, White Rock, and
Celeste. The south loop included Lone Oak, Campbell, Greenville,
Caddo Mills, and Quinlan.
The hometown shall furnish a set of officials to
officiate the game, one week previous to the playing date. Officials
should be satisfactory. In case the schools fail to agree as to the
officials, the director of athletics shall select officials. In case
the officials agreed upon, fail to appear, the visiting team may return
home without forfeit, but the game will be set to be played at a later
date on a neutral court.
The winning team shall notify the County Athletic
Director as to the outcome of each game.
That, when a county athletic director calls a school
on business, connected with that school, the telephone or telegraph call
must be paid by the school concerned.
That a committee consisting of Mr. Meeks to represent
the north loop and a member selected by Mr. Meeks to represent the south
loop shall make out a schedule for both loops, that the winner of the north
loop and the winner of the south loop play three games to determine the
county champions on a home and home basis, the third game to be played
on a neutral court.
That each team shall produce a list of players before
each contest...with the eligible players' names on it and signed by the
Superintendent, Principal, Coach, and President of the School Board.
