PIAA BOARD OF DIRECTORS ADJUST BASKETBALL AND SOFTBALL PAIRINGS

Monday, January 28, 2013

 

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Monday, January 28, 2013

 

The PIAA Board of Directors', at its meeting last Friday, January 25, 2013, upon a review of the PIAA basketball and softball pairings adjusted the brackets based upon the number of schools that participate in each respective sport. These items were brought to the Board's attention due to the consolidation of schools in one area of the state and it caused PIAA districts to have an inconsistent representation of schools in their respective brackets. This inconsistency caused a concern for the Board in these two sports, where both affected Districts, would be underrepresented in violation of the proportional representation policy as adopted over the years.

PIAA Executive Director, Dr. Robert A. Lombardi, applauded the Board's action by stating, "In utilizing the policy of proportional representation, the Board corrected a situation caused by the consolidation of schools after the protocol was developed. Their action allows for the consistent application of this policy."

The affected Classes are AAA Girls' Basketball and A Girls' Softball. PIAA District X will now have three (3) entries into the AAA Basketball bracket and District IV will have two (2) entries into the A Softball bracket. Please review the respective brackets which are printed in the PIAA Rules and Regulations section of the PIAA Handbook for a complete listing of the brackets.
