It will be interesting to see how the IHSWCA Classed Team State plays out.
The problem is it is not really a Team State Tournament because all teams in Indiana are not included.
IHSAA Team State Tournaments include all IHSAA member schools.
The IHSAA tournament doesn't care about power numbers or returning placers, every member school is included in the tournament.
I think it has a chance to be another really good super dual tournament, but not a State Champion tournament.
Will the IHSWCA give out Team Trophies and rings to the Champion and Runner-up?
Will he Media recognize the Champions as State Champions?
Will the schools have fire truck rides and a big homecoming ceremony?
To me its just not the same as an IHSAA sanctioned event.
Yes, it will stroke some egos to say you are state champions, but did you rally advance through a true team tournament?
When you think of State Champion or State Runner-up, you think of Blue Ring or Red ring - IHSAA
You don't think of IHSWCA, when you think of State Champion.
Like I've said before, we let it go last year without even putting up a fight.
