ADs vote to submit three-class basketball format

Wednesday, August 27, 2008

LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) -- The Indiana High School Athletic Association will be asked to consolidate four-class tournaments into three.

McCutcheon athletic director Tim Slauter, a past president of the Indiana Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association, tells the Journal & Courier of Lafayette the organization voted 33-5 Wednesday to bring the proposal to the IHSAA.

The IIAAA recently surveyed its members, and 58 percent of those who responded supported the reduction from four to three classes.

The IHSAA has conducted four-class state tournaments in basketball, baseball, softball and volleyball since 1997-98. Football is played in five classes and would not be affected by the three-class proposal.
