They can actually get a waver from the IHSAA if the board though it was worth it. They did this in basketball a few years ago because Indiana was hosting some national high school showcase, so the IHSAA allowed us to face a team from farther away than the current rule.
The part of the rule about how far of a distance a school can travel is OK with me. However, if we are within that radius I do not see an issue with facing teams that may travel from farther away. That part of the rule as keep Indiana teams out of several major national tournaments in many sports in cluding wrestling. It also has prevented top teams from around the country from traveling to Indiana or even meeting at a neutral site to play a national game.
Seems to be our travel radius is a decent rule, but the IHSAA shouldn't be concerned about the travel distance of other teams we face. If they want to travel futher to face Indiana teams then that is for their state assiciation to decide not ours.
