In one show, you might learn how the middle school girls basketball team is doing.

Another show might cover records that a high school track player has broken or how the football team is preparing for the upcoming season.

Five students at Whiteland Community High School have started a biweekly radio show. Their first broadcast was in January.

The athletics-based show is the project of a history teacher who wants to see the show grow into a full-scale radio broadcast program staffed by students.

“It lets them take ownership of something,” history teacher Chris Wood told the Daily Journal. “These are real-world skills they will have to have in any occupation.”

Students want their peers to get recognition for their athletics feats, students said.

Currently, students, teachers and staff members can read about high school athletics in the newspaper; and students read the public-address announcements.
