In the span of less than two months, Xavier goes from mostly D3 Eastern Valley to mostly D2 Bay and now faces potential 1.65 multiplier.
Not matter how hard they look, private school coaches in WI can look up and down the hallway and not find that .65 student in multiplier.
WIAA includes just over 70 private schools and well over 400 public schools. The multiplier likely passes based on school origin.
The result of a passed 1.65 multiplier for private schools in WIAA playoffs? Litigation. Lots and lots of it. And big $$ put out by WIAA.
WIAA membership, or at least the portion headed by the Six Rivers Conference, prefers to treat schools differently within its membership.
Example: Xavier with an enrollment of 600 would actually be at 990 with 1.65 multiplier. Probably not good for XHS football program.
Virtually all private schools would move up at least one division in most sports if multiplier is passed next month at WIAA Meeting.
Majority vote will carry the day in multiplier for private schools in WIAA playoffs. Chance of proposal not passing? Slim.
Administrators from the Six Rivers Conference are among leaders behind proposal to add 1.65 multiplier for private schools in WIAA playoffs.
