The backlash over a directive that Kentucky high schools should not conduct postgame handshakes has included district officials saying they won't follow it and a lawmaker who is calling for change.
    
Kentucky's athletic sanctioning body issued a "directive" on Tuesday that told high schools not to conduct postgame handshakes in all sports following more than two dozen physical confrontations the past three years.
    
The Lexington Herald-Leader (http://bit.ly/GPtxHD) reports Kentucky High School Athletic Association Commissioner Julian Tackett issued another clarification of the directive on Wednesday, describing it as a recommendation.
    
At least three schools, including the state's two largest, said they plan to continue postgame handshakes.
    
Meanwhile, Democratic Rep. Steve Riggs of Louisville said he plans to pre-file a bill to remove the KHSAA's authority to fine schools and athletic personnel.
