Referee collapses during varsity game
Southern Sports & Travel
An MAIS referee collapsed during last night's varsity girls game between West Memphis Christian and Lee (AR).
Gary Cordell started experiencing blurred vision in one eye during the second quarter of the girls varsity game and that quickly spread to his other eye according to Cordell, whom I spoke with this morning.
The next thing Cordell remembered was a team of people around him working on him.
According to West Memphis Christian Athletic Director Chris Norton several well trained parents were in attendance and did a great job of providing the necessary care.
The games were being played at Mid-South Community College in West Memphis, Arkansas last night and the games were immediately postponed until a further date.
Last word on Cordell's condition was positive and that he was responsive and alert according to West Memphis A.D. Chris Norton.
Please keep Mr. Cordell in your prayers.
