KHSAA unveils 'Triple Threat' award
5/15/2018 3:30 PM

Monday afternoon, the Kentucky High School Athletic Association announced its newest student-athlete recognition - "Triple Threats" - which was created in an effort to "continue the national emphasis and the KHSAA's own efforts" to de-emphasize the concept of sports specialization in sports culture.

To qualify as a KHSAA "Triple Threat," a student-athlete must have participated and competed in a high school sport in the fall, winter and spring seasons for their respective program.

The hope is to further promote year-round athletes who stay engaged in athletics from July to June.

More than 150 athletes in the Paducah Sun coverage area qualified for this inaugural award.
