BREAKING NEWS: Mother says Kelsey Leach now eligible at Sequoyah

— Two months after she was ruled ineligible by the Oklahoma Secondary Schools Activities Association, Kelsey Leach is again eligible at Sequoyah, according to her mother, Kay Leach.

Because Kelsey Leach was denied a retroactive hardship, Sequoyah was stripped of its Class 5A slowpitch softball championship that is won in the spring of this year.

According to Kay Leach, it was found that the Leach family does live within the lines of the Sequoyah Schools District and not the Cave Springs district like originally thought.

Leach, a junior who plays three sports, will now be allowed to participate in basketball and slowpitch softball this year.
