A press Conference was held shortly after 8:15pm this evening at the Joplin South Middle School.
Today at approximately 5:30 p.m., emergency personnel responded to Joplin High School Kaminsky Gym, where the high school football team was practicing indoors. A sophomore student had a medical emergency following conditioning and was transported to a local hospital for treatment.
It is with extremely heavy hearts that we can now share the tragic loss of Kadin Roberts-Day due to cardiac arrest. Coach Jasper and his coaching staff, his teammates, fellow teachers and students at Joplin Schools remember Kadin as an extremely presentable and caring student.
Counselling services have been made available to any student or staff needing support and will continue for the coming days. Our deepest sympathy goes to the family and friends
