NIAA realignment proposal extended

Staff Reports

The Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association (NIAA) realignment Committee met on Thursday in Las Vegas and extended its time line to work on a re-classification plan for high school sports in the state.

Committee members will reconvene this coming Friday at 1 p.m. via teleconference to create a recommendation for the assignment of schools into regions, leagues and possibly create a recommendation for postseason formats. Among the topics discussed on Thursday at Chaparral High School was formulation of a new 5A classification for the fall 2018 through spring 2020 cycle.

Recommendations from the committee will be voted on by the NIAA Board of Control during its regularly-scheduled winter season meeting on Jan. 17-18 in Reno.
