Concussion? Some schools using computer tests to identify injury
St. Louis Post-Dispatch via Daily Hampshire Gazette
At least a dozen St. Louis area schools are now using — and in some cases requiring — a baseline concussion assessment test for its athletes. The 25-minute test, typically given to students every two years before the start of the athletic season, scores cognitive, memory, response time and visual recognition skills. In the days after an injury, retaking the test can confirm a decline in skills and a possible concussion. Later, a school or physician will re-administer the test to see if those skills have recovered to the baseline scores. That can indicate whether the athlete is healed and ready to return to play.

Proposal promotes parity in high school athletics
Columbus Telegram
In Nebraska, the David City Aquinas football team has reached the state semifinals five consecutive years, playing in three straight Class C-2 title games and winning two championships over that time. At Lindsay Holy Family, the girls basketball team is a perennial contender for the state title in Class D-2 — the same is true for Scotus Central Catholic volleyball in Class C-1 — and Boone Central/Newman Grove is building a football powerhouse in Class C-1 with two straight trips to the state semifinals and one championship game appearance. These high school dynasties can be found across the state, and one lawmaker is questioning whether so much success among a small number of schools is good for Nebraska high school athletics as a whole.

College football is taking steps toward establishing an early signing period, according to the NCAA official who manages the national letter of intent program.
