(STATEHOUSE) - One state senator is disappointed in the decision for Indiana to remain in a multi-class basketball system.
State Senator Jean Leising says she wasn't too surprised at IHSAA Commissioner Bobby Cox's decision to remain in a multi-class basketball system and says his decision was not based on the popular view of the people of Indiana.
Leising says a majority of the public who attended a series of town hall meetings on the subject supported returning to a single-class system. However, Commissioner Cox says a majority of principals, athletic directors, coaches and players opposed a return to single-class.
Leising says she will consider bringing the topic up in the next legislative session. If she does, she says it will be in the form of a referendum for voters.
She says it will be tough to move a referendum through the general assembly but she believes it's the only way for the people of Indiana to have a voice in the discussion.
