Still No National Prep Championships

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The National Federation of State High School Associations has rejected a proposal that would have allowed it to conduct national championships in golf and cross country.
Though 22 member state associations were in favor and 21 were against it, a two-thirds majority was required.
Executive director Bob Gardner said this week’s vote shows that state championships are still the preferred goal in high school sports.
“The NFHS will continue to support the more than 7.6 million student-athletes involved in high school sports whose dream each year is to win a state title in their particular sport,” Gardner said.
Since the original declaration by the membership against national championships in 1934, the federation has not supported or sanctioned national competition that leads to a single team champion. In 1979, there was a 38-9 vote against a proposal to conduct national invitational competitions in golf, tennis, and track and field during the summer.
The Indianapolis-based federation has directed development of model national championships in several sports for consideration by its members.

State Golf Sites Moved by WIAA

The WIAA executive board also made changes to the state golf tournaments.
The 4A and 3A tournaments will remain in Spokane — where all the tournaments were held last spring — and the 2A/1A and 1B/2B sites have been moved to Tacoma.
