The Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association met Wednesday, but didn’t vote on expanding from four to six classifications.
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that PIAA executive director Bob Lombardi said there was a reason the state governing body didn’t vote on expansion, “I think the reason is because there are all sorts of variables that people are hearing. I think schools haven’t heard a definitive policy [of 6A]. Some people want six classes, but want it a certain way.”
Expect the expansion discussion to continue in September when the PIAA’s strategic planning committee meets.
In addition to the expansion proposal, the PIAA continued to discuss an idea to shorten the season from 16 to 15 weeks.
