1/28/13 – Freshmen Match Play Scoring Adjusted / Region 1 Alignment

January 28, 2013 Volleyball Blog Updates

The KHSAA Board of Control, at its January meeting, made a revision in the volleyball match format for freshmen contests.  Beginning with the 2013-14 school year (2013 season), freshmen match format will mirror junior varsity.  Match play will be best two (2) sets of three (3) to 21, rally score, with all sets to 21.  Member schools may agree in advance during regular season play on alternate scoring formats, but may not exceed two of three sets to 21.

There was no change to junior varsity or varsity match format/scoring.

Region 1 Volleyball Alignment
The Board of Control also approved the alignment of teams in Region 1 to begin with the 2013-2014 school year due to the consolidation of Reidland, Heath and Lone Oak to form McCracken County.  These decisions are never easy and seldom unanimously accepted, but this one was made smoother by the great cooperation and feedback from the member schools in Region 1. The Board honored the wished of the schools to leave the membership in Region 1 intact (not move any new school into the region), and approved option A as presented to the schools at the meeting of schools in Mayfield. The Board recognized that at least one member school had concerns about the alignment, but felt this alignment of teams matched the Board’s stated goals of geographic and travel placement. These changes will be mirrored wherever possible and practical in the alignments for baseball, softball, volleyball and soccer, as well as basketball.

The alignment of teams effective for 2013-2014 in Region 1 will be:
District 1 – Carlisle County, Fulton City, Fulton County, Hickman County
District 2 – Ballard Memorial, Graves County, Mayfield
District 3 – Community Christian, McCracken County, Paducah Tilghman, St. Mary
District 4 – Calloway County, Christian Fellowship, Marshall County, Murray
