KHSAA notes

Here are a few notes from the Kentucky High School Athletic Association’s Board of Control meeting last month:

  • The tennis postseason tournament tiebreak protocol will go from a full third-set tiebreaker to a “super tiebreaker.” In that format the first player or doubles team to 10 points, and ahead by two, wins the match.
  • Beginning next school year the format for freshman volleyball matches will play the best two out of three sets to 21, with rally scoring, mirroring junior varsity contests.
  • Beginning next school year there will only be a one-class format system in competitive cheering. Squad divisions will continue as follows in the all-girls category: small (6-12 members); medium (13-16); large (17-20); and super large (21-24). The coed division will be offered with a minimum of six (two boys and four girls or four boys and two girls) and a maximum of 24, of which at least two shall be boys.
