TMS Athletics


We are still plugging along for fall fall sports. This past week, we had out first athletic event with the football team visiting Lapel on Tuesday. The football team will have their first home game Saturday, August 22nd @10 am against Logansport.

To this point, athletes have done a good job following safety protocols and wearing a mask where possible. It is vital to continue to follow these guidelines to ensure we do not have an influx in transmission, and we can keep athletics going as long as possible!

Please check the newsletter for spectator guidelines for home events. Just like the athletes, we hope everyone will do their part to stop the spread. We appreciate your cooperation!

If you have any questions about anything 'TMS athletics', please email Mr. Leach ( or Mrs. Whitesell (

We ask that you remain patient with us as things can change quickly. Our goal is to provide as many athletic opportunities as possible while also keeping athletes, coaches, and fans safe!

Thank you,

Mr. Leach
