BOARD APPROVES EXTENSION OF SUMMER BASEBALL VENUE AGREEMENT

STEVENS POINT, Wis. – The Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association Board of Control conducted its May meeting at the executive offices today.

The Board approved a number of action items. It supported an executive staff recommendation to extend the agreement with Kapco Park as the venue of State Summer Baseball Tournament through 2020. Kapco Park is located on the campus of Concordia College in Mequon, Wis., and also serves as the home of the Lakeshore Chinooks.

In other action, the Board voted to approve a member school request to dissolve a girls golf co-op, which provides the opportunity for one of the schools to sponsor a stand-alone team in the fall. The board also approved the transcript of the 2017 Annual Meeting and the April general fund financial statements and payments.
 
The executive staff shared reports on a number of topics with the Board, including the results of a Board run-off election. Dave Steavpack, athletic director at Manitowoc Lincoln High School, will serve as the District 4 representative. It also received liaison updates from Michael Thompson of the Department of Public Instruction, John Ashley of the Wisconsin Association of School Boards and Peggy Seegers-Braun of the Wisconsin Athletic Directors Association.

The membership of the WIAA oversees interscholastic athletic programs for 511 senior high schools and 38 junior high/middle level schools in its membership. It sponsors 27 championship tournament series for boys and girls in 2016-17. For more information, visit the WIAA website at www.wiaawi.org or contact the WIAA office at (715) 344-8580.
