New EIAC

April 12, 2013

Most of the athletic directors have spent a lot of time the past two years trying to work out all the bugs in the new EIAC alignment. One thing that has helped is the fact that a lot of the existing schools already play Connersville and Rushville in most of the 17 sports contested by the EIAC schools. What was not easy was scheduling basketball and football games for the 2013-14 season. In the first place, not all EIAC schools play all the other conference schools in football any more. Lawrenceburg will not play most of the 4A schools. I am sure that Batesville is going to play all of the 4A schools. Connersville is already on the schedule and Rushville will replace Monrovia. In basketball the round robin has been dropped. However, because of the rivalry and the revenue collected, Batesville and Greensburg will still play each other twice a season, but only one of the games will count toward the conference championship. This will obviously rotate each year. I believe the same is going to happen with East Central. With the emphasis on class size, you have probably already noticed that Batesville no longer plays Milan in basketball. I think this was a mutual decision between the two schools. We also did not play South Ripley this past year other than in the County Tourney. Coach Garrett wants to add another Indianapolis school to the Batesville schedule. This is becoming a necessity if you want to be competitive in the season-ending state tournament. I totally understand why they do it and why they must do it, but it was always nice to play all the local schools.
