BREAKING: OSSAA shoots down proposed 6A split


Enid News and Eagle

OKLAHOMA CITY — — Enid High School’s chances of competing for future football state championships took a blow Wednesday after the Oklahoma Secondary Schools Activities Association board of directors shot down a proposal that would have created a Class 7A in football.

The motion, which had garnered support in several circles, failed by a 7-6 vote. It was followed by a motion to send the proposal back to the Constitution and Rules Review Committee for further review and discussion.

Put before the board at its October meeting, the proposal would have split the current 32-team Class 6A into two 16-team classes, essentially creating a Class 7A in order to help alleviate the perceived inequity at the top of the class.
