Authors:COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The Ohio High School Athletic Association’s Board of Directors recently approved its revised Competitive Balance Proposal to place before the membership during the annual referendum voting process that will be held between May 1 and 15. If adopted, the proposal would place schools into their respective tournament divisions in team sports based on a sport-by-sport athletic count. The formula for calculating the athletic count includes factors related to how students enter the school (boundary factor), the ability of students to access additional resources for successful competition (socioeconomic factor), and the success of a specific program over a long period of time (tradition factor). If adopted by the membership, the change would become effective for the 2013-14 school year. Copyright 2012 SportsInk. All rights reserved.
