              Bill Schlepp discussed having a combo team tournament instead

              Discussion was tabled until the spring meeting


              Zone Defense Discussion

              Bill Schlepp doesn’t see how zone benefits the younger athletes. Fundamentals

                            should be taught before zone is allowed.


              Jim Gregg stated that zone was allowed because of the lack of enforcement

                            not allowing zone defense.

              Bill Schlepp motions to take away zone defense

              Squee Guardipee of Heart Butte 2nd s motion

              Jim Gregg is against the motion

              Tara Thielman is also against the motion and would like to discuss it with her

                            coaches before voting either way.

              Scott Reding would also like to ask input from his coaches.

              Brian Barrows suggested that the Zone defense should not be allowed in 7th grade,

                            but allowed in 8th grade.

              Motion was tabled until spring. Bring back input of coaches.


              Volleyball Serving line

              Brain Hayes proposed that the serving line for 7th graders be moved up 3ft. the

                            first week of the seasons matches and then gradually moved back each

                            week until the serving line is in the proper place for the tournaments.

              Tara Thielman stated that’s how UMS coaches choose our traveling teams and is

                            therefore against the proposal.

              Proposal tabled until spring meeting. Bring back input from coaches.


Wrestling discussion

              Tara Thielman said that Kevin will be in touch with all wrestling coaches regard-

                            ing the matches in Conrad scheduled for March 2nd.  Kevin will probably

                            re-schedule the matches for the 1st instead.

              Scott Larson and Brian Hayes both stated that Thursday, Feb. 28th would be better

                            as they are both manning tables at the NAIA National Tournament in GF

Discussion of recapping the wrestling and volleyball seasons took place next.


Tara Thielman stated that the NMSAA checking account is having $2.00 deducted every

              month for a service charge.  She wants permission to see if the fee can be waives

              since there is so little activity. This was granted.  She was also granted permission

              to check other institutions for a better deal if Wells Fargo won’t work with her.

              She will go to the bank after the meeting to see what can be done.
