There was plenty of chatter on social media the two weeks leading up to the state track and field championships last month. A lot of it concerned state records that were about to be shattered. Rightly so, because some were indeed pulverized. Others were discussing a topic that ramped up in popularity a year-and-a-half ago: Are there too many classifications in Utah high school sports? Ever since the Utah High School Activities Association introduced the sixth classification — effective this past school year — a common complaint has been that six is too many and the competition is watered down, that teams qualify for the state tournament that shouldn’t be there and wouldn’t even be close in other states. Yes, it is too much, but let us consider that the UHSAA probably isn’t going to slam the brakes on six classifications when it considers the latest realignment proposals this fall. So let’s instead focus on what we have — which is the … [Read more...] about Column: Let’s improve the high school sports playoff system

Wednesday November 14, 2018 08:46 PM Equity Summit makes its case before the PIAA Written by Mike Drago MECHANICSBURG - Equity Summit organizers finally had their chance Wednesday to make a case before the PIAA that the state's high school sports governing body should have separate playoffs for public and private schools.Their appeal - backed by statistics showing that non-boundary schools are cleaning up in football and basketball - likely didn't change any minds on the other side of the issue.Members of the the PIAA Competition Committee, as well as executive director Dr. Robert Lombardi, seemed unmoved.Lombardi and the PIAA Board of Control have long said that state law prohibits the organization from creating separate playoffs for public, or boundary schools, and non-boundary schools: parochial, private and charter.Nothing Lombardi heard Wednesday changed his mind."It's contrary to the intent of the law," Lombardi said of separate playoffs.Len Rich, superintendent of the … [Read more...] about High school sports: Public. vs. private debate doesn’t change minds

For example, what if Trendon Watford of Mountain Brook spurns his top college recruiters and picks late-surging Duke instead?See, that needed a trigger warning.The AHSAA state basketball tournament began on Monday at Legacy Arena and ends on Sunday. Mountain Brook (29-3) plays Montgomery’s Robert E. Lee (29-3) at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday in the 7A semifinal. The 7A state championship is on Sunday. A two-time winner of the state’s Mr. Basketball award, Watford is the first McDonald’s All-American from Birmingham since Buck Johnson in 1982.
