MURFREESBORO (AP) — The Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association Board of Control has voted to keep the Spring Fling in Murfreesboro through the 2013-14 school year.
The current contract to have the events in Murfreesboro expires in 2012, but the board voted Wednesday in Murfreesboro to extend the contract two years.
The contract is worth $350,000 a year, according to The Daily News Journal.
