to remove the no zone rule from the constitution, none was made.
Discussion was had regarding the removal of the 10 point rule for the 8th.
The discussion was tabled so AD’s can talk to coaches about the no zone rule for 8th grade teams. We will bring
it back up at the spring meeting.
Johanna Myers made a motion to add additional wording to the constitution. “A Zone defense infraction is
separate from a 10 point press infraction, no technical foul is given until a second infraction of the same
type is committed.” Scott Reding seconded the motion. Motion carried.

Underwood made a motion – “To dissolve the weight divisions and to adopt the grade divisions 7th and 8th.
Underclassmen may move up a division but must stay at that level for the entire track meet.”

VII Dustin Gordon mentioned the need for common start times, everyone
agreed to the following times:
Monday – Friday 4:30, Saturday 10:00 (changes allowed with agreement of the playing teams)
Everyone felt that this did not need to be a part of the constitution. Reminder of start times will be made
prior to the scheduling meeting.
