For the fourth year in a row, amendments to make boys and girls lacrosse varsity sports were voted down by the WIAA Rep Assembly. The boys vote failed 35-0 and the girls vote was defeated 33-2.
This says more about the financial state of school districts than the legitimacy of lacrosse as a sport, in my opinion.
One notable amendment that passed implements a running clock in the second half of football games with a 40-point differential. Previously, the running clock started when one team led by 45 points or more.
Rep Assembly members submitted votes online this year.
