Introduced by: Buell, Turner


____________________________________




     A HOUSE RESOLUTION to urge the IHSAA to reestablish a single class basketball tournament in Indiana in addition to the current class basketball tournament.

    Whereas, Indiana has a proud tradition of a single elimination basketball tournament for high school basketball;

    Whereas, Indiana's current class basketball tournament serves a useful purpose, but need not be the only basketball tournament sanctioned by the Indiana High School Athletic Association (IHSAA);

    Whereas, Indiana has a long tradition of David versus Goliath basketball games, exemplified by the movie Hoosiers;

    Whereas, A one class basketball tournament not only has a long Hoosier tradition, but breeds the type of rugged individualism and struggle against traditional odds which is personified by Indiana's historic tourney; and


    Whereas, Indiana needs the enthusiasm and spirit a single tourney always created among our high school athletes and their enthusiasts: Therefore,

Be it resolved by the House of Representatives of the

General Assembly of the State of Indiana:

    SECTION 1. The House of Representatives urges the IHSAA to create a single class basketball tournament in Indiana in addition to its current class basketball tournament.
    SECTION 2. The Principal Clerk of the House of Representatives is directed to transmit a copy of this resolution to the Indiana High School Athletic Association.
