Commissioner Dan Ross: “This fall, the OHSAA will conduct a survey of our membership to gather feedback on the Competitive Balance issue. The Competitive Balance Committee will then meet to study the survey results and determine if a new proposal should be forwarded to the Board of Directors for consideration of a new referendum issue next May. It remains the goal of the OHSAA to keep public and non-public schools together in the same tournaments. The Competitive Balance Committee’s goal is to do that, but also to create a more balanced method for how schools are placed into divisions. We appreciate all of the feedback from our member schools thus far and expect to receive even more when the survey is completed.”
Highlights: By a 5-4 vote, the Board approved a proposal from the Ohio High School Basketball Coaches Association to allow member schools to play up to 22 regular-season basketball games beginning with the 2012-13 season. Of note, the length of the season will not be expanded.
