04/29/15 – Baseball/Softball Game Ending Clarification

KHSAA Softball Blog - Wed, 04/29/2015 - 10:26

GAME COMPLETION

This is a reminder to Coaches, Officials and Administrators with regard to interrupted games. During the regular season, including district seeded games, for games that are interrupted due to weather or darkness and called (ended) by the umpire, the game is final if it meets NFHS rules requirements for a shortened game — at least 4 1/2 innings with the home team ahead or five full innings. (Baseball Rule 4-2-2, 4-2-3; Softball Rule 4-2-2, 4-2-3).

For postseason (District, Region and State), all games must be played to completion by rule.

03/19/15 – Statement on Passing of Ira Combs

KHSAA Commissioner's Perspective - Thu, 03/19/2015 - 15:48

Commissioner Julian Tackett issued the following statement upon the death of Ira Combs-

“Ira Combs was a larger than life figure whose regular appearance at the Sweet 16 was a source of personal pride, as was his legendary work with the Joe B. Hall Classic and other high school events on an annual basis. His year-round work supporting the mountain schools, and all KHSAA schools, as well as his beloved UK Wildcats was truly a labor of love. Just yesterday, Ira stopped by press row and commented favorably on the revised press row setup, while leaving me with another commemorative pin. His passing is further proof that life is fragile and you should cherish every moment. To his beloved Dilce Combs brethren and his brothers and entire extended family, we offer our sympathies and prayers. RIP Ira.”

09/29/14 – Four Measures Receive Approval at Annual Meeting

KHSAA Commissioner's Perspective - Mon, 09/29/2014 - 16:13

At the Annual Meeting of the membership of the KHSAA, four proposals received the votes necessary for approval. The membership was represented by 215 of the schools (out of 277 members), a turnout very comparable to the past few years, with 144 votes (2/3 majority of those present) being required for a proposal to receive approval.

The proposals will now go to the KHSAA Board of Control for a formal recommendation to the Kentucky Board of Education. Absent any procedural snags, the proposals will go to the Kentucky Board of Education for a two-meeting consideration phase, with final approval by the Kentucky Board of Education anticipated in April. Following that consideration, if approved, the proposals will go to the Regulation Review Subcommittee of the Kentucky General Assembly and the Interim Education Committee for final approval witha hopeful effective date of August 1, 2015 for any changes.

The following was the voting for those issues. The [...]

This is the second part of a two-part effort to talk about the 2014 KHSAA Annual Meeting.

Please feel free to contact the office with any questions.

Final preparations are underway for the 2014 Annual Meeting at the Lexington Center on September 29. Staff is busily making final updates to the documents related to the meeting, and posting them on the KHSAA website with updates nearly every day.

  • Veteran Athletic Directors and sport-activity participants will have a panel discussion regarding adding new programs, including the obstacles you might face from school administration, your local board or school based group, and your community;
  • Dan Schuester of the NFHS Coaching Education Department [...]
