IHSAA: Avoid fake live streams

The IHSAA said in a news release that the public should avoid fake live streams that are promoted on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

The IHSAA added that those fake live streams are “phishing” for personal information and sometimes trying to install malware on your device. Scams have been on the rise since the pandemic began, according to the news release.

“Unfortunately, scammers know that live streaming is more important now than it has ever been,” IHSAA Director of Broadcasting Heath Shanahan said. “This is a new way for someone to take advantage of the high school sports fanbase. We want to make sure that fans of our member schools do not fall prey to these scammers.”

The IHSAA Champions Network and IHSAAtv.org is the official video streaming platform of the IHSAA.

Girls soccer mental attitude award named for Wynns

The IHSAA Executive Committee unanimously approved naming the girls soccer mental attitude award in honor of former IHSAA Assistant Commissioner Theresia Wynns.

Wynns was an IHSAA Assistant Commissioner from 1997-2012, where she administered girls and boys soccer, girls basketball and girls and boys tennis. She also managed the licensing of over 8,000 IHSAA officials, the IHSAA sportsmanship program and tournament merchandising.

After leaving the IHSAA, Wynns worked on the staff of the National Federation of State High School Associations until her retirement this summer.
