The move of the Tennessee High School Spring Fling to Middle Tennessee proves NOT to be profitable for the TSSAA.
The Spring Sports State Championships, which made money for the State Organization the last 3-years in Memphis...lost about $14-thousand dollars in its' first year in Murfreesboro.
The TSSAA says expenses exceeded gate receipts and parking revenue.
It It's the first time the event has lost money.
Memphis and Chattanooga posted guarantees to cover any losses.
Chattanooga hosted the event for 9-years before its' move to the Bluff City in 2003.
