New Basketball Schedule

December 6, 2013
By

As you have noticed by now, the boys basketball schedule has changed the most and the girls somewhat.  The IHSAA was directed by a Title IX ruling that boys and girls schedules must be equal.  This means that girls get the same availability for weekend games as the boys do.  Since schedules are made several years in advance, this meant much juggling by athletic directors around the state of Indiana.  In the case of Batesville, it was further complicated by the addition of Connersville and Rushville to the conference schedule.  You will now find the boys playing on Tuesday and Thursday nights, and the girls playing on Friday and Saturday nights.  This, of course, does not mean every week you will find this schedule, but it will occur.  For example, Batesville boys played New Castle on a Tuesday and then the girls played on Saturday of that week.  This will continue to occur during the remainder of the 2014 schedule and for years to come.  Batesville boys will play at least three Thursday games the second half of this season and a Saturday afternoon game.  For the most part, when the final schedule is completed each year, girls will no longer be playing all week games and the boys will no longer have just weekend games.  Now the numbers must be as even as humanly possible.
