This Might Help

Indiana is definitely a basketball state, but we play other sports too. I enjoy football, even though I never played for my high school squad. I wish I had played, but that is a post for another day. My old high school, the South Dearborn Knights, are in the news this morning. They are scheduled to play Shelbyville in the sectional semifinals this evening. Shelbyville is 10-0 and ranked 7th in the state in their division. South Dearborn is…well, South Dearborn is not. But there is hope for the Knights of South Dearborn. Read this report from today’s Indianapolis Star:
SHELBYVILLE, Ind. — Several members of Shelbyville’s football team have been diagnosed with an antibiotic-resistant staph infection.
David Adams, superintendent of Shelbyville Central Schools, said the district sent e-mails Tuesday and mailed letters Wednesday to inform parents and guardians about the situation and provide information on the infection. Schools were dismissed early Wednesday for parent-teacher conferences and were closed Thursday and today for fall break. Shelbyville (10-0), ranked No. 7 in Class 4A by The Associated Press, plays at South Dearborn tonight in a sectional tournament semifinal.
Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, or MRSA, does not respond to penicillin and related antibiotics but can be treated with other drugs. The infection can be spread by skin-to-skin contact or sharing an item used by an infected person. Kim Owens, administrative assistant for the school corporation, said the infected Shelbyville students are receiving treatment.
More than a dozen other cases of MRSA have been reported in schools around the state, including at least five in the Indianapolis Public Schools district.
I sure feel bad for the Shelbyville kids.

But…

GO SD!!!!!

UPDATE

My beloved South Dearborn Knights were defeated by the staph infected Shelbyville Golden Bears 41-13.
