Another tournament balance plan defeated

COLUMBUS, Ohio – The latest attempt to bring some parity to high school tournaments in a half-dozen sports met with defeat.

The board of directors of the Ohio High School voted down a proposal to change how schools are assigned to tournament divisions in football, soccer, volleyball, basketball, baseball and softball.

This is the third year in a row a competitive balance plan has been defeated.

Rather than place schools in divisions based strictly on male or female enrollment, the plan called for an adjusted count, which would have been calculated by multiplying a “sport specific factor” by the number of students in grades nine through 12 on each specific team whose parents reside outside the public school district or the school’s attendance zone. That number would have been added to the original enrollment count.

The plan was substituted for one that called for all OHSAA tournaments to be conducted separately for public schools and non-public schools. A proposal to conduct separate tournaments will be on the ballot next spring, commissioner Daniel Ross said.

The plan was defeated 327-308.
