Hoops motion squashed

A controversial motion that would have created four tiers at the boys high school basketball level has been voted down.

A mail in vote by the province’s athletic directors killed the motion, much to the delight of G.W. Graham AD Jake Mouritzen.

“While many believed this would create more opportunity for teams to compete for provincial championships, our program strongly believes that it doesn’t matter what size your school is (large or small),” he said. “If you work hard and have a committed coaching staff and group of players that want it bad enough, anything is possible. We are excited to remain at the AA level and continue to work towards our ultimate goal of winning our first AA provincial championship.”

The motion would have added a AAAA level to the pre-existing A, AA and AAA tiers. Schools would have been grouped based on population, with the option to move up, but not drop down a tier.
