Plainfield School District 202 considers what to do about students who don't pay athletic or club fees; one option could mean students will be forced to withdraw from their sport.
The Plainfield School District 202 school board and administration are considering options when it comes to student athletes who do not pay for the sport they play. This year, the district issued $350,000 in fees for high school students who participate in athletics or clubs, and nearly half, or $172,000, of those fees still have not been paid, said Angela Smith, the district’s assistant superintendent for business and operations.

Bolingbrook 85, Romeoville 33. The Bolingbrook Lady Raiders emerged with district bragging rights and an IHSA Regional title behind Morgan Tuck's 19 points.
The Hot Read: Apparently, only a pulled fire alarm could stop the red-hot Lady Raiders. With 2:34 remaining in the second quarter—after Taylor Tuck made a free throw—a fire alarm went off at Plainfield East High School, causing a 21-minute delay in the game. But the pause was just a minor setback for Bolingbrook, which scorched the nets early and often—a 25-1 run in the first quarter propelled the two-time defending state champs to a 27-6 lead it would never relinquish. Junior Morgan Tuck scored a game-high 19 points to lead Bolingbrook, while sophomore Kiera Currie's 16 points wasn't enough to spur Romeoville to an upset victory. Patch's MVP: Seniors Taylor Tuck and Ariel Massengale combined to score 23 points, grab six steals and pull …

She also overwhelmed the Rams defensively, swiping four steals and dishing five assists in the Spartans win. Key stats: Ball-handling was the key to this game from start to finish.
