INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - High school sports in Indiana will remain as is. The IndianaHigh School Athletic Association decided to pass on changing thecompetition class system.
Diehard fans want the Cinderella story, but thatdoesn’t seem like a possibility, at least not for now.
The IHSAA has decided to keep the current four-class system forschool sports, including basketball, instead of considering aproposal to move to a three-class system after an overwhelming 58percent of state principals voted against the idea.
"I prefer to keep it at four classes because I think it levelsthe playing field and gives our athletes a lot better opportunityto compete with their peers at different levels based on theirtalent pool," said Northwest High School Principal LarryYarell.
That's why the athletic association decided against presentingthe three-class idea to an executive board. School leaders may beagainst the idea, but sports fans don't necessarily agree.
"I say take it back to one. That's really when basketball wasfun in Indiana," said hoops fan Kevin Rose.
Only 138 principals out of 326 statewide voted in favor of goingto the three-class system.
9 P.M. UPDATE: The winter storm warnings have been canceled and most snow is coming to an end. The colder temperatures were starting to move into central Indiana.
