Ohio High School Athletic Association Board of Directors Meeting Highlights

COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Ohio High School Athletic Association Board of Directors met Thursday morning in Columbus for its regularly scheduled February meeting. The following are highlights from the meeting. The complete set of meeting minutes will be posted at OHSAA.org in the near future.

- The OHSAA’s Sportsmanship, Ethics and Integrity Committee nominated Logan, Ohio, native and former Ohio State, WNBA and U.S. National Team basketball standout Katie Smith as its recipient of the 2013-14 OHSAA Ethics and Integrity Award. The board unanimously approved the recommendation. Ms. Smith will be honored at the upcoming state basketball tournaments.
- The board was updated on new sponsorship of the Respect the Game program coming from the American Dairy Association Mideast office. The increased support will allow the OHSAA to send Respect the Game banners to all schools and fund the school sportsmanship awards program, among other items.
- The financial reports for the regional (if applicable) and state tournaments in field hockey, golf, soccer and girls tennis were presented to the board. The field hockey state tournament resulted in a profit of $8,770. The golf state tournaments resulted in a loss of $8,916. The soccer regional and state tournaments resulted in a profit of $66,808. The girls tennis state tournament resulted in a loss of $5,601. The regional and state tournament financial reports in volleyball and football are expected to be presented at the April board meeting.
- The volleyball coaches association made three proposals. First, to raise the height of the net in junior high contests so that it is the same height as the high school net. Second, that in varsity tri-matches, the contest can be determined by a best three-out-of-five sets instead of two-out-of-three if the coaches and athletic administrators all agree before the match. And third, to eliminate the portion of warm-ups when both teams are serving across the net at the same time. The board will vote on the proposals at its April meeting.
- Three schools were recently penalized for committing infractions of OHSAA bylaws or sports regulations. The complete list of penalties and sanctions is always included in the complete meeting minutes, however media may request the list in advance from Tim Stried, OHSAA Director of Information Services, at tstried@ohsaa.org.
- The board conducted the regional and state tournament bracket draws in softball and baseball. The information will be posted on the softball and baseball pages at OHSAA.org. In addition, the tournament regulations in boys tennis, softball, baseball and track & field were approved and will be posted on the respective sport pages at OHSAA.org.
- The National Federation of State High School Associations recently announced the 2012-13 state and sectional coaches of the year (eight sections nationwide). The OHSAA will issue a separate press release on Feb. 17 detailing the award winners.
- The Northeast District Athletic Board has selected Cleveland’s Dale Gabor, while the Northwest District Athletic Board has selected Sylvania Northview’s Jerry Sigler as their honorees for the OHSAA Naismith Meritorious Service Awards. They will be honored at the boys basketball state tournament. A rotation system allows each of the OHSAA’s six district athletic boards to honor a representative from their area every three years.
- The board thanked Kim Zaborniak for her 33-plus years of service to the OHSAA as an administrative assistant. Ms. Zaborniak will retire from the OHSAA office Feb. 14
