Wednesday, Oct. 23, has been announced as the date of the Tulsa World’s Winter Sports Photo Day.

Area high school players and coaches are invited to attend that event, which will be held from 3:30-6:30 p.m. at Union High School’s UMAC’s Redskin Room.

Coaches from basketball, swimming, wrestling and other winter sports are asked to bring their top five to eight athletes. Football teams that missed the World’s Fall Sports Photo Day in August also are invited to attend, as well as any spring sports teams.

Participants can attend any time between 3:30 and 6:30 p.m., and it usually takes from 30 to 45 minutes for each team to fill out forms and have their pictures taken.

The photos and information gathered at the event are vital to the World’s coverage of high school sports throughout the school year. Many story ideas are generated from Photo Day.

Athletes participating in Photo Day are eligible to be asked to be the student selector in the World’s “Weekly World Picks.”
