10/31/14 - Reminders about Football Playoffs and Final Regular Season Week

This is going to ALL KHSAA football playing schools. If it doesn’t apply to you, please disregard.

As we prepare for potentially 95 games to be played during week 1 of the playoffs, we ask for your cooperation as we try and pull final brackets together over the weekend. We have published what we have as of now, but need game times and sites confirmed so that officials assignments can be made.

A few reminders–

1) BRACKETS AND TIE BREAKERS – All information as we have it now, is posted on the KHSAA web site. You can find it at http://khsaa.org/sports/fall/football/ under the pull down for playoff Rounds 1-4,

2) PLEASE REMEMBER TO CALL IN YOUR SCORE as soon as the game is over this week EVEN IF YOU ARE NOT PLAYING IN THE PLAYOFFS. Many times, the three-way tiebreaker comes down to a single missing results from a non-playoff team, so all scores are important. This is the most important weekend of the year to be timely with your score report. Win or lose, home or away, please call that score in to 800-453-6882 as soon as the game is over. We don’t need stats at that point (you can login and enter those later) individual scoring or anything, just the game score.

3) IF YOU ARE HOSTING, FILL OUT THE SITE FORM. If your position is already known, please fill out form FB106 online at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/FBSites2014

4) REVIEW THE INSTRUCTIONS. Most of the instructions haven’t changed since prior years, and have been online for several weeks, but they should be reviewed to minimize dispute. The complete instructions are at http://khsaa.org/sports/fall/football/ under the pull down for playoff Rounds 1-4, select Football Playoff instructions for Rounds 1 to 4 (including forms). The direct link is at http://khsaa.org/football/footballplayoffinstructionswithforms.pdf.

5) TIES AND STANDINGS. As soon as all games are reported and recorded (including one scheduled for Saturday), we will break all three-way ties and post final standings, and begin the process of assigning officials.

6) FINANCES. One of the common questions we receive is about the distribution of money and team expenses. This is covered on page 8 of the instruction manual.

10/29/14 - Tentative Football Tiebreaker Calculations Available

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: October 29, 2014

With the 2014 regular season coming to an end this week, tentative football three-way tiebreaker calculations are available at KHSAA.org (through games of October 24). The tentative projections can be viewed at http://www.khsaa.org/football/2014/threewaytiebreakertodateoctober252014.pdf.

Interested parties should keep in mind that the calculations are tentative, as most teams have a game remaining this weekend and tiebreakers cannot be finalized until all games are played. For teams playing out-of-state opponents from Indiana, only wins from the first 10 games of the opposing team’s schedule are counted for tiebreaking purposes, to keep those teams on par with Kentucky schools.

Playoff pairings for the 2014 season can be found at this link:
http://khsaa.org/football/playoffpairings20112014.pdf

For convenience, the tie-breaking procedure for football (from the KHSAA Handbook) is listed below:

b) TIE-BREAKER (more than two teams). Should three or more teams tie for a district position based upon the win-loss record, the position shall be determined by the following:

i) If one of the teams has defeated each of the other teams tied in games contested between them, that team shall be declared to hold the highest position, and the winner of the game between the remaining teams (if less than four) shall be declared the second highest position. In the event of more than three teams being tied, where one has defeated each of the tied teams, that team shall be declared the highest position, and the tie-breaking procedure shall be re-applied for the remaining tied teams.

ii) If the tie remains, each team tied for the position shall receive one point for each game won by any four of their defeated opponents in all games, except for the games played between any two of the tied teams. All games played shall be counted in applying the tie-breaking procedure, including out of state games, with the exception that a defeated school may be counted only once in the procedure regardless of the number of games played against that particular school. Teams awarded forfeit victories (whether or not a forfeit fee is paid) may count the defeated opponents of the forfeiting team, provided the game was not replaced on the schedule.

iii) If the tie remains after application of provision (ii), an additional defeated opponent’s wins will be added to the point total for each team until the tie is broken and the winner of the tied position declared, or until all games are exhausted.

iv) If the tie for the position involves only three teams, and the application of (ii) and (iii) results in one team being declared the winner of the tied position based on point totals, the highest point total from the application of (ii) and (iii) between the two remaining tied teams shall be declared to hold the next position.

v) If the tie for the championship involves more than three teams, and the application of (ii) and (iii) results in one team being declared the winner of the tied position based on point totals, the procedure shall then be re-applied to determine the next position.

vi) If the tie for the position involves more than three teams, and the application of (ii) and (iii) results in two teams remaining tied for the position based on points, the head to head game played between them shall break the tie, and head to head competition will break any remaining ties.

vii) If a tie results after application of all provisions of the above plan, the tie shall be broken by the Commissioner.

10/27/14 - Fall Sports Postseason In Full Swing; Hopkinsville Penalized for Bylaw Violations

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: October 27, 2014

Fall Sports Postseason In Full Swing

With the Leachman Buick•GMC•Cadillac/KHSAA Golf State Championships already in the books, the postseasons for the remaining KHSAA fall sports are in full swing. The inaugural KHSAA Field Hockey State Championship resumes tonight with semifinal action at Bellarmine University. Assumption takes on Sacred Heart at 5:30 p.m. followed by DuPont Manual against Mercy at 7 p.m. Live stats and a live webcast for each game will be available at KHSAA.org. The KHSAA Field Hockey State Championship game will be played Wednesday, Oct. 29 at 7 p.m.

The KHSAA Boys’ and Girls’ Soccer State Tournament begins tonight with girls’ semi-state games at campus sites, followed by the boy’s semi-state games tomorrow evening. The KHSAA Soccer State Tournament Quarterfinals will take place Saturday, Nov. 1 with the boys’ games at Henry Clay HS and the girls’ games at Lafayette HS in Lexington.

Volleyball Region Tournaments began with the 13th Region this past Saturday, and will run through Saturday, Nov. 1 when the 9th Region Tournament concludes. The KHSAA Volleyball State Tournament is slated for Nov. 7-9 at Valley HS in Louisville.

Regional Cross Country Meets are scheduled for this coming Saturday, with the state meet taking place Saturday, Nov. 8 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington. The first two Competitive Cheer Regional Meets were conducted last Saturday, with results available at KHSAA.org. The window for Regional Competitive Cheer competitions runs through Dec. 7, with the state meet slated for Saturday, Dec 13 at Alltech Arena in Lexington.

Hopkinsville Penalized for Bylaw Violations

The Kentucky High School Athletic Association has handed down sanctions to Hopkinsville High School after it self-reported a violation of Bylaw 4 (Enrollment Requirements) and Bylaw 5 (Minimum Academic Requirement). According to its Principal, the school failed to properly monitor the academic progress of a student who subsequently was determined not to be on grade level as required by the bylaws. This breach of the bylaws resulted in an ineligible player participating in the first five football games of the 2014 season.

“This action takes nothing away from the great accomplishments of the Tiger football team this year, but represents a required step in upholding our membership obligation,” said Hopkinsville HS principal Curtis Higgins. “We will learn from this mistake and will have procedures in place to prevent its recurrence in the future.”

As a result of its violation, Hopkinsville will forfeit the first five games of the season (three of which were originally won by Hopkinsville) for use of an ineligible player. Hopkinsville’s wins over West Creek, Tenn. (42-7), Calloway County (75-14) and Warren East (61-21) will all become 1-0 forfeits. Individual and team statistics from the game will remain intact.

“Self monitoring is the key to rules compliance within the Association,” said KHSAA Commissioner Julian Tackett. “This is another example of a school stepping up and making the decision to comply with the rules the membership has collectively passed, and to keep school based competition under the control of the schools. This school and its leadership should be commended for taking a proactive step to correct this oversight.”

All questions and inquiries into this matter should be directed to Hopkinsville High School.

ASBA Response to NBC National News Story on Health Effects of Crumb Rubber in Synthetic Turf

Last week a story aired on The NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams and on the Today Show concerning a potential connection between crumb rubber and higher rates of Cancer in soccer goalkeepers. Click here to view a video of that story. 
 

ASBA has relied on and will continue to rely on research of manufacturers and suppliers of these products and independent researchers. The overwhelming weight of the existing research indicates that these products are safe for use, which is consistent with the conclusions of the large numbers of governmental bodies that have considered the issue.  In the absence of further scientific evidence on the issue, ASBA will continue to rely on these sources of information.

We wanted to make you aware of this news story, should you be contacted by your customers or local press.

We have issued a brief statement on the ASBA position which is posted on our website (click here to view). Anyone seeking additional information on the studies that have been conduct ( ed on the health effects of crumb rubber, can visit the STC website at www.syntheticturfcouncil.org

10/20/14 - KHSAA and Special Olympics Announce New Partnership, Unified Sports Opportunities

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: October 20, 2014

The Kentucky High School Athletic Association and Special Olympics Kentucky announced a new partnership in a press conference at the KHSAA headquarters on Monday, unveiling plans to develop unified sports opportunities in Kentucky for intellectually disabled student-athletes.

For the last four years, the KHSAA has conducted adapted track and field events at its state meet for physically disabled student-athletes. The new venture with Special Olympics Kentucky will allow for the development of unified sports opportunities in all sports, with intellectually disabled students and students without intellectual disabilities competing together in a mutually beneficial, inclusive experience.

“One of the hallmarks since I have been with the Association has been to offer increased participation opportunities for all students,” said KHSAA Commissioner Julian Tackett. “I am extremely proud that we can focus on another tremendous growth opportunity for participation and help important segments of the student population, both those with intellectual disabilities and their teammates, to experience the invaluable lessons taught through sport and sport-activity. Nothing should be more inclusive than American sport, teammates working together for a common goal, and I believe both groups will learn more from each other than can be taught in any other setting.”

The Special Olympics Unified Sports program combines Special Olympics athletes and athletes without intellectual disabilities (partners) on sports teams for training and competition. Age and ability level matching of Special Olympics athletes and partners, and the Special Olympics athletes/partner ratios are defined on a sport-by-sport basis, in accordance with the Sports Rules.

“This is such an exciting moment for our athletes and our program,” said Trish Mazzoni, President and CEO of Special Olympics Kentucky. “For the first time in our state, our athletes will not only run in the same meets as their classmates who don’t have intellectual disabilities, but as teammates in the same races. We appreciate and applaud Commissioner Tackett and the KHSAA’s vision that Unified Sports can not only build better sports teams and events, but can build better stronger school communities for everyone. We look forward to the 2015 track and field season.”

The increased participation opportunities available through the new partnership will benefit from a commitment by Special Olympics Kentucky to help fund the salaries of coaches participating in the program. For more information on Special Olympics Kentucky, visit www.soky.org.

Basketball Tournament Results

10/31/14 - Reminders about Football Playoffs and Final Regular Season Week

This is going to ALL KHSAA football playing schools. If it doesn’t apply to you, please disregard.

As we prepare for potentially 95 games to be played during week 1 of the playoffs, we ask for your cooperation as we try and pull final brackets together over the weekend. We have published what we have as of now, but need game times and sites confirmed so that officials assignments can be made.

A few reminders–

1) BRACKETS AND TIE BREAKERS – All information as we have it now, is posted on the KHSAA web site. You can find it at http://khsaa.org/sports/fall/football/ under the pull down for playoff Rounds 1-4,

2) PLEASE REMEMBER TO CALL IN YOUR SCORE as soon as the game is over this week EVEN IF YOU ARE NOT PLAYING IN THE PLAYOFFS. Many times, the three-way tiebreaker comes down to a single missing results from a non-playoff team, so all scores are important. This is the most important weekend of the year to be timely with your score report. Win or lose, home or away, please call that score in to 800-453-6882 as soon as the game is over. We don’t need stats at that point (you can login and enter those later) individual scoring or anything, just the game score.

3) IF YOU ARE HOSTING, FILL OUT THE SITE FORM. If your position is already known, please fill out form FB106 online at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/FBSites2014

4) REVIEW THE INSTRUCTIONS. Most of the instructions haven’t changed since prior years, and have been online for several weeks, but they should be reviewed to minimize dispute. The complete instructions are at http://khsaa.org/sports/fall/football/ under the pull down for playoff Rounds 1-4, select Football Playoff instructions for Rounds 1 to 4 (including forms). The direct link is at http://khsaa.org/football/footballplayoffinstructionswithforms.pdf.

5) TIES AND STANDINGS. As soon as all games are reported and recorded (including one scheduled for Saturday), we will break all three-way ties and post final standings, and begin the process of assigning officials.

6) FINANCES. One of the common questions we receive is about the distribution of money and team expenses. This is covered on page 8 of the instruction manual.

10/29/14 - Tentative Football Tiebreaker Calculations Available

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: October 29, 2014

With the 2014 regular season coming to an end this week, tentative football three-way tiebreaker calculations are available at KHSAA.org (through games of October 24). The tentative projections can be viewed at http://www.khsaa.org/football/2014/threewaytiebreakertodateoctober252014.pdf.

Interested parties should keep in mind that the calculations are tentative, as most teams have a game remaining this weekend and tiebreakers cannot be finalized until all games are played. For teams playing out-of-state opponents from Indiana, only wins from the first 10 games of the opposing team’s schedule are counted for tiebreaking purposes, to keep those teams on par with Kentucky schools.

Playoff pairings for the 2014 season can be found at this link:
http://khsaa.org/football/playoffpairings20112014.pdf

For convenience, the tie-breaking procedure for football (from the KHSAA Handbook) is listed below:

b) TIE-BREAKER (more than two teams). Should three or more teams tie for a district position based upon the win-loss record, the position shall be determined by the following:

i) If one of the teams has defeated each of the other teams tied in games contested between them, that team shall be declared to hold the highest position, and the winner of the game between the remaining teams (if less than four) shall be declared the second highest position. In the event of more than three teams being tied, where one has defeated each of the tied teams, that team shall be declared the highest position, and the tie-breaking procedure shall be re-applied for the remaining tied teams.

ii) If the tie remains, each team tied for the position shall receive one point for each game won by any four of their defeated opponents in all games, except for the games played between any two of the tied teams. All games played shall be counted in applying the tie-breaking procedure, including out of state games, with the exception that a defeated school may be counted only once in the procedure regardless of the number of games played against that particular school. Teams awarded forfeit victories (whether or not a forfeit fee is paid) may count the defeated opponents of the forfeiting team, provided the game was not replaced on the schedule.

iii) If the tie remains after application of provision (ii), an additional defeated opponent’s wins will be added to the point total for each team until the tie is broken and the winner of the tied position declared, or until all games are exhausted.

iv) If the tie for the position involves only three teams, and the application of (ii) and (iii) results in one team being declared the winner of the tied position based on point totals, the highest point total from the application of (ii) and (iii) between the two remaining tied teams shall be declared to hold the next position.

v) If the tie for the championship involves more than three teams, and the application of (ii) and (iii) results in one team being declared the winner of the tied position based on point totals, the procedure shall then be re-applied to determine the next position.

vi) If the tie for the position involves more than three teams, and the application of (ii) and (iii) results in two teams remaining tied for the position based on points, the head to head game played between them shall break the tie, and head to head competition will break any remaining ties.

vii) If a tie results after application of all provisions of the above plan, the tie shall be broken by the Commissioner.

10/27/14 - Fall Sports Postseason In Full Swing; Hopkinsville Penalized for Bylaw Violations

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: October 27, 2014

Fall Sports Postseason In Full Swing

With the Leachman Buick•GMC•Cadillac/KHSAA Golf State Championships already in the books, the postseasons for the remaining KHSAA fall sports are in full swing. The inaugural KHSAA Field Hockey State Championship resumes tonight with semifinal action at Bellarmine University. Assumption takes on Sacred Heart at 5:30 p.m. followed by DuPont Manual against Mercy at 7 p.m. Live stats and a live webcast for each game will be available at KHSAA.org. The KHSAA Field Hockey State Championship game will be played Wednesday, Oct. 29 at 7 p.m.

The KHSAA Boys’ and Girls’ Soccer State Tournament begins tonight with girls’ semi-state games at campus sites, followed by the boy’s semi-state games tomorrow evening. The KHSAA Soccer State Tournament Quarterfinals will take place Saturday, Nov. 1 with the boys’ games at Henry Clay HS and the girls’ games at Lafayette HS in Lexington.

Volleyball Region Tournaments began with the 13th Region this past Saturday, and will run through Saturday, Nov. 1 when the 9th Region Tournament concludes. The KHSAA Volleyball State Tournament is slated for Nov. 7-9 at Valley HS in Louisville.

Regional Cross Country Meets are scheduled for this coming Saturday, with the state meet taking place Saturday, Nov. 8 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington. The first two Competitive Cheer Regional Meets were conducted last Saturday, with results available at KHSAA.org. The window for Regional Competitive Cheer competitions runs through Dec. 7, with the state meet slated for Saturday, Dec 13 at Alltech Arena in Lexington.

Hopkinsville Penalized for Bylaw Violations

The Kentucky High School Athletic Association has handed down sanctions to Hopkinsville High School after it self-reported a violation of Bylaw 4 (Enrollment Requirements) and Bylaw 5 (Minimum Academic Requirement). According to its Principal, the school failed to properly monitor the academic progress of a student who subsequently was determined not to be on grade level as required by the bylaws. This breach of the bylaws resulted in an ineligible player participating in the first five football games of the 2014 season.

“This action takes nothing away from the great accomplishments of the Tiger football team this year, but represents a required step in upholding our membership obligation,” said Hopkinsville HS principal Curtis Higgins. “We will learn from this mistake and will have procedures in place to prevent its recurrence in the future.”

As a result of its violation, Hopkinsville will forfeit the first five games of the season (three of which were originally won by Hopkinsville) for use of an ineligible player. Hopkinsville’s wins over West Creek, Tenn. (42-7), Calloway County (75-14) and Warren East (61-21) will all become 1-0 forfeits. Individual and team statistics from the game will remain intact.

“Self monitoring is the key to rules compliance within the Association,” said KHSAA Commissioner Julian Tackett. “This is another example of a school stepping up and making the decision to comply with the rules the membership has collectively passed, and to keep school based competition under the control of the schools. This school and its leadership should be commended for taking a proactive step to correct this oversight.”

All questions and inquiries into this matter should be directed to Hopkinsville High School.

ASBA Response to NBC National News Story on Health Effects of Crumb Rubber in Synthetic Turf

Last week a story aired on The NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams and on the Today Show concerning a potential connection between crumb rubber and higher rates of Cancer in soccer goalkeepers. Click here to view a video of that story. 
 

ASBA has relied on and will continue to rely on research of manufacturers and suppliers of these products and independent researchers. The overwhelming weight of the existing research indicates that these products are safe for use, which is consistent with the conclusions of the large numbers of governmental bodies that have considered the issue.  In the absence of further scientific evidence on the issue, ASBA will continue to rely on these sources of information.

We wanted to make you aware of this news story, should you be contacted by your customers or local press.

We have issued a brief statement on the ASBA position which is posted on our website (click here to view). Anyone seeking additional information on the studies that have been conduct ( ed on the health effects of crumb rubber, can visit the STC website at www.syntheticturfcouncil.org

10/20/14 - KHSAA and Special Olympics Announce New Partnership, Unified Sports Opportunities

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: October 20, 2014

The Kentucky High School Athletic Association and Special Olympics Kentucky announced a new partnership in a press conference at the KHSAA headquarters on Monday, unveiling plans to develop unified sports opportunities in Kentucky for intellectually disabled student-athletes.

For the last four years, the KHSAA has conducted adapted track and field events at its state meet for physically disabled student-athletes. The new venture with Special Olympics Kentucky will allow for the development of unified sports opportunities in all sports, with intellectually disabled students and students without intellectual disabilities competing together in a mutually beneficial, inclusive experience.

“One of the hallmarks since I have been with the Association has been to offer increased participation opportunities for all students,” said KHSAA Commissioner Julian Tackett. “I am extremely proud that we can focus on another tremendous growth opportunity for participation and help important segments of the student population, both those with intellectual disabilities and their teammates, to experience the invaluable lessons taught through sport and sport-activity. Nothing should be more inclusive than American sport, teammates working together for a common goal, and I believe both groups will learn more from each other than can be taught in any other setting.”

The Special Olympics Unified Sports program combines Special Olympics athletes and athletes without intellectual disabilities (partners) on sports teams for training and competition. Age and ability level matching of Special Olympics athletes and partners, and the Special Olympics athletes/partner ratios are defined on a sport-by-sport basis, in accordance with the Sports Rules.

“This is such an exciting moment for our athletes and our program,” said Trish Mazzoni, President and CEO of Special Olympics Kentucky. “For the first time in our state, our athletes will not only run in the same meets as their classmates who don’t have intellectual disabilities, but as teammates in the same races. We appreciate and applaud Commissioner Tackett and the KHSAA’s vision that Unified Sports can not only build better sports teams and events, but can build better stronger school communities for everyone. We look forward to the 2015 track and field season.”

The increased participation opportunities available through the new partnership will benefit from a commitment by Special Olympics Kentucky to help fund the salaries of coaches participating in the program. For more information on Special Olympics Kentucky, visit www.soky.org.
