Area athletics directors support new check system for volunteers

Six months after an altercation between a volunteer coach and player at Bluffton High School led to changes in the district's policy for background checks, area athletics directors are supporting the more stringent system and say it hasn't had a major effect on their programs. In February, Bluffton volunteer assistant girls basketball coach Alexandra L. Murphy, then 21, left the program after her involvement in an altercation with a player outside the student's home.
