After the Milan High School victory, eight teams have made it to the Final Four. These teams are Springs Valley High School in 1958, Tell City High School in 1961, Cloverdale High School in 1966, Loogootee High School in 1970 and 1975, Argos High School in 1979, Shenandoah High School in 1981, Southridge High School in 1985, and Whitko High School in 1991 (“One-Class…”). Loogootee’s 1975 team made it to championship game; but, no small, current A or 2A, school won the championship after Milan High School (Johnson). Just as state champions change each year, so does tournament attendance. In 1960, the total series attendance was 1,497,674. By 1997, the tournament attendance dropped to 786,024 (Whitko). Long after the first Indiana boys’ basketball …show more content…
Because of this referendum, the IHSAA member principals got the chance to vote for multiple-class high school basketball tournaments. If the majority had voted against multiple-class basketball, the original vote would have been overturned (“IHSAA Boys Basketball State Tournament…”). The original vote was not overturned; however, as the principals voted to uphold multiple class basketball tournaments 220-157 in September of 1996 (Nye; “IHSAA Boys Basketball State …show more content…
The multiple-class format consisted of 1A, 2A, 3A, and 4A schools (“IHSAA Boys Basketball State Tournament…”). These classes distinguished enrollments of schools, with 1A having the lowest enrollment numbers, and 4A having the largest enrollment numbers (Likas). This format, though new to Indiana, was not new to most U.S. schools. Most U.S. schools used the multiple-class format in 1997, with Kentucky, Delaware, and Hawaii being the only states to remain with the single-class basketball system (Hutton). This first year of multiple-class basketball tournaments in Indiana was a historic one. History was made because for the first time in IHSAA history, there were four basketball state champions (“IHSAA Boys Basketball State Tournament…”). Those champions were Pike High School for class 4A, Indianapolis Cathedral High School for 3A, Alexandria High School for 2A, and Lafayette Central Catholic High School for A (“IHSAA Boys Basketball State Champions”). After this first year of multiple-class basketball in Indiana, the IHSAA board of directors reviewed the class system again. This vote took place on May 3, 1999, as the return to single-class was rejected 13-5 (Nye). Consequently, Indiana has played multiple-class basketball tournaments ever

Most schools in the US offer interscholastic competitive activities for students to participate in. Competitive activities give participants and spectators a chance to rally together and support their school district. In addition to showing support to their school, athletes are provided with physical activity and several other opportunities they would not be given otherwise. Schools should keep interscholastic competition. It is expensive to maintain extra-curricular activities.
Title IX Prior to June 23, 1972, when the Title IX act was passed, few opportunities existed for female athletes. The Title IX act, pioneered by Dorothy Height, opened up new doors for women and girls. This act was a huge success for all female athletics, as women and girls alike began to be treated more equality in the sports world Female sports went very unrecognized before Title IX. Elementary schools rarely offered competitive sports programs for girls, and college girls athletics were intramural rather than extramural; meaning the girls would compete against other girls from their school rather than girls from other colleges and universities. Educators knew this was an issue but they could not do anything about it, as there were no resources available to improve the situation.
In my opinion, I think that competitive sports in school have a lifetime of benefits. In this article Kevin Kniffin states that, “Research shows that people who play high school sports get better jobs, with better pay.” In my essay I will be explaining how people who play sports get better jobs and better pay, and how hiring managers expect more out of a former high school student who played sports. In my opposing side I will be explaining how in the worlds smartest countries, school is about learning. However, this minor argument still leads me to the side of Kevin Kniffin.
The Union County Vocational Technical Schools (UCVTS) should have a sports program for students to join. Some students turn down the opportunity to come to UCVTS because no sports opportunities are available. Not many extracurricular activities are available besides clubs on campus. Also, students who attend UCVTS and play sports for their local hometown school can’t enjoy the same school spirt from a hard fought victory as the students who attend the hometown school. Students should play for the school they attend.
Some people at Webb City High School would be very angry to find out that they will no longer be allowed to participate in extracurricular activities due to their grades. The students who really want to play sports though would get into gear and get their grades up to prove that they deserve to play. What is a School without education? Pointless. Other people in the community believe that the “C rule” is not fair for the people who do not participate in any extracurricular activities because they will not be being punished.
It was October, 21st the Riverside High School Bulldogs Homecoming game. They were 8 and 1 and they needed this win to advance to the State Championship. All the pressure was on all star quarterback John Tortellini. After the last bell rang the team meet up in the football weight room so they could get a pregame workout in.
It 's that magical time of year again when we step out of "March Madness" into "April Amazement. " Amazement at the talents of the final four teams, that is! Watching the games over the weekend, it occurred to me that the NCAA Basketball Tournament is a classic study on what it takes to reach the highest levels of performance in a highly competitive environment - one that is not unlike today 's business world.
Causal Argument The National Collegiate Athletic Association has hosted the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament for 81 years.(NCAA) This tournament is watched by millions all throughout the country. It is composed of the best division one teams in the nation. The decision on whether a team gets to be in the tournament or not is decided by the NCAA Division I men’s basketball committee.
When Coach Haskins started the all African-American team, many people thought they would not work well together. Most of America thought the plan would fail because the unofficial theory at the time was that there had to be a minimum of one white player on the court to “control” the team. However, the Texas Western Miners defied that belief by beating the Kentucky Wildcats. This game has had an everlasting impact on the modern NCAA game.
In the picture to the right, I created a collage of college sports that are represented throughout the United States. These colleges are all sponsored through the NCAA and help out with student-athletes receiving scholarships playing on a Division
This notion is supported by Dr. Daniel Gould, who believes that “Children who participate in sports have increased educational aspirations, closer ties to school and increased occupational aspirations in youth” (1). People against the funding of high school sports think that parents and society are placing more emphasis than ever before and, “[P]ressures athletic personnel to deviate on winning from the athlete- centered educational and personal development mission” (Gould 1). However, athletes strive to do better in class. Michael Lorenc, a high school basketball coach believes that “those who seem to have an overwhelming schedule where they’re playing maybe multiple sports, and high academic schedules, they tend to do better than those who don’t do anything extracurricularly” (Gray). Balancing sports and school makes athletes put more effort into keeping up grades while playing the sport they love.
