The WIAA Board of Controls announced a couple of amendments to their constitution that will be up for vote by membership on Monday night. The most controversial of the two will be to institute a multiplier to private schools to determine what divisions they are placed in for post-season tournaments. The rule would multiply the schools enrollment by 1.65 and that number would be used to place schools in a division. Some public school’s, especially in small rural communities feel they are at a disadvantage when they are matched with private schools from large metropolitan areas who have similar enrollments. If that passes it will will probably end up in the courts. The 2nd amendment put conference affiliation back in control of the member schools and out of the hands of the Board of Controls. That mean’s the WIAA would no longer be in charge of determining what conferences schools participate in.
