It’s a big day today for
high school athletics in the state of Wisconsin
as member schools will vote on whether a multiplier should be used to determine
where private schools are placed for postseason play. The proposed amendment would multiple a
private school’s enrollment by 1.65 and use that number as enrollment to place
them into playoff divisions. If it passes most privates would be bumped up a
division for the playoffs and some schools in football would move up two
divisions. Members will also vote on
whether to take the formations of conferences away from the WIAA and into the
hands of the schools themselves.
