On Dec. 4, 2018 the Idaho High School Activities Association (IHSAA) held a board meeting at their offices located in Boise.

Here are some of the notable takeaways from the December meeting.

-The 2019 football representation and bracketing with modifications as needed passed as a first reading. 2A football looks like it will be joining 3A in using the Ratings Percentage Index (RPI) system for this next season. For the play-in round in 3A, which are not IHSAA games, 4B would play 3C, 1/2B would play 6B and the final play-in game would pit 5B against 3B. From there, the remaining teams would then be ranked one through eight, with the one seed playing the eight seed, the two seed against the seven seed and so on and so forth. In this scenario all conference champions get a bye through the play-in round. Five district champions and the three play-in game winners would then play in the quarterfinals. 2019 representation for volleyball, swimming and soccer was approved on a first reading as well. The final readings take place on Jan. 23 for each of these sports.

-IHSAA Executive Director Ty Jones announced that they will be revamping the format in which the Milk Bowl rotations are released. After public confusion over where the 4A and 5A state championship football games would be held this year, the IHSAA will now have all of the information on one document in one format, listing out the additional rules that are to be considered in relation to where the games are played. Jones stated that these are all the same rules that have been followed over the years anyways and that rather than wait until September to release the Milk Bowl rotations, that theoretically they could be released much earlier than that. 

-Prior to factoring in the cost of using Albertsons Stadium to host the 4A and 5A championships, Holt Arena rental fees, security, etc., the IHSAA is reporting a $53,952.07 profit for the Milk Bowl championships. It is expected that the bill from Boise State University will be at least $20,000, which will cut into that profit total.

-State volleyball reported a profit across all classifications of $11,444.45. State cross country was in the red, with a loss of $17,185.70, which is increased from a $15,134.99 loss the year prior. The 4A and 5A state soccer tournaments operated in the red as well, with the 3A tournament in the black this year. In its first year as an IHSAA sponsored event, state swimming reported a $2,999.44 loss. 

-About 1,000 student-athletes competed throughout the state in swimming this year, with 442 participating at the state event. IHSAA Assistant Director Julie Hammons reported that they almost had to shut the door at state due to fire code and that moving forward they cannot do combined finals, so the schedule was changed for this year on Friday to adjust. She also wants to discuss the number of alternates that are allowed, as 182 were on-site this year, which is a high number for the size of the West YMCA facility where the event is held. 

-Ty Jones reported that around 1,110-1,200 students transferred last year, with 235 eligibility waivers handed out. He says the IHSAA board only denied six of these transfers eligibility. 

-IHSAA Assistant Director Julie Hammons will be taking over as YEA Executive Director on May 2, 2019. She takes over for Dick Curtis.

-The IHSAA is working on making their site mobile-friendly.

-The 2019/2020 calendar for the IHSAA was moved from tentative to approved, with modifications as needed on a final reading. 

-Boulder Creek Academy in Bonners Ferry was approved for regular membership as a first reading.
