INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - A group of athletic directors has
recommended the Indiana High School Athletic Association
consolidate the four-class state basketball tournaments into three
The Indiana Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association
presented the proposal Friday at a regularly scheduled meeting of
the IHSAA executive committee.
The IHSAA made no immediate decision, but commissioner Blake Ress will prepare a survey to send to school principals on the subject.
He will first give it to the board in December..
The ADs group surveyed its own members last summer.
LaPorte athletic director Ed Gilliland says 58 percent of the
ADs who responded to the group's survey supported the reduction to
three classes, primarily to eliminate bye games, create a better
balance of sectional teams and cut travel expenses.
