The nonprofit organization that oversees West Virginia's high school sports reported revenues of two million dollars last year, but expenses that resulted in an overall loss of 33-thousand dollars.

That's according to The Charleston Gazette. The newspaper obtained the Secondary School Activities Commission's tax filings for the year ending in June 2006.

The SSAC spent 845-thousand dollars on sports championships and in areas such as publications and scholarships. It spent 106-thousand dollars on travel alone.

Championship events turned profits in eight sports. The boys and girls basketball tournaments brought in 553-thousand dollars, while football brought in 259-thousand dollars.

Among the championship events that lost money were cross country, golf, soccer, tennis and track.
