IHSAA Rule

April 4, 2013
By

If you haven’t heard yet, the IHSAA has introduced a new rule that will affect schools who win too much. Yes, that is what I said–schools that win too much! If you win two consecutive state championships in a sport, you will have to move up a class unless you are already in the top class (4A). This could affect Greensburg in basketball next year. Since all of their starters are back from this year’s state championship team, they will be favored to repeat next year. An interesting twist to this is that Bowman Academy has won two straight 2A championships and they will be moved up to 3A next year. They have all five starters back also. You must win or at least get to the semi-state level to be affected by this rule. It does not affect sectional or regional championships because the points you earn doing this will not add up to the move-up level in a two-year span of time. This rule was put in to satisfy the public schools who felt parochial schools had an advantage because they are allowed to recruit. Most people felt this would not be much of an issue with open enrollment, but it will affect a lot of schools this year and next. Fort Wayne Canterbury and Lafayette Central Catholic will both move up a class as will the already mentioned Bowman Academy. Batesville would be affected by the loss of their top opponent if this would happen to Greensburg. I know most schools would chance this if it meant winning two straight championships, but then they are stuck in that class when the talent runs out. I will write more about this later.
