FHSAA cuts games for next year

-A A +A
By Jim Clark

The Florida High School Athletic Association is proposing some big changes in high school athletics for the next school year, cutting back on the number of regular season games allowed for each team in all sports except varsity football, and changing districts for sports other than football, whose new districts have previously been announced.

According to the FHSAA Web site posted on Tuesday, the number of varsity games in basketball, volleyball, baseball and softball will be limited to 20, down from the 25 now allowed. In JV football, only six games would be allowed. Junior varsity teams in the other sports would be limited to 15 games.

The proposal still has to be adopted by the FHSAA board of directors.

Along with the announced cuts, the FHSAA listed the final districts for basketball and volleyball.

Williston will play in Class 3A with Fort White, Newberry, Alachua Santa Fe and Live Oak Suwannee.

The changes could have a devastating effect on schools that run tournaments and one-day shootouts.
