To say that Joe Kemper helped shape the Collier School District’s athletic programs would not be an understatement. After 33 years in the school system where he worked his way up to from a math teacher and coach to the role of Interscholastic Athletics Coordinator, Kemper is hanging up his whistle and clipboard and heading into retirement. 

The song said "it never rains in Southern California," but recent heavy downpours in Los Angeles have led the National Football League to switch the host city for the Super Bowl in 2021 from L.A. to Tampa.

March Madness is coming back to Tampa, as the Amalie Arena has been selected as a host site for first and second round games in the 2020 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Championship.

In addition, the Bay area will welcome 11 Division II championship events in 2020 and 2021.
