The Alabama High School Athletic Association (AHSAA) Central Board of Control Wednesday upheld two recent AHSAA eligibility rulings appealed by James Clemens and Chickasaw high schools.
The appeals were heard at the Central Board’s annual October meeting at the AHSAA Office. James Clemens High School’s appeal concerned the Eight Semester Rule while Chickasaw High School’s appeal related to the Custody and Legal Guardianship section of the Transfer Rule.
The Board also heard a request for membership from Lindsay Lane Christian Academy of Athens. A vote was tabled and the request will be reconsidered later this school year to allow more time for evaluation of membership requirements.
The Central Board also thanked longtime AHSAA assistant director Alan Mitchell for his many contributions to the AHSAA while continuing to serve on a part-time basis.
Other Board action included:
-- Approved the 2014 Super 7 Football projected expense budget.
-- Approved online data requirement and publication clarifications.
-- Heard a report concerning the NFHS Section 3 Meeting hosted by the AHSAA in September.
-- Heard updates concerning the C2C Academic calculator.
-- Heard a report from Knight Eady representative Mike Vest concerning upcoming Super 7 plans.
