WIAA Winter Sports Changes
The WIAA Board of Control recently made several drastic changes impacting winter sports. Beginning in 2019-20, a co-op gymnastics team would only be eligible for the tournament series if it includes only two schools or if the combined enrollment of the co-op program is less than the largest stand-alone school program in the divisional placement. Individual competitors from ineligible co-ops will be eligible for the individual competition only. The second unique decision adds language to the season regulations in wrestling that allows teams with eight or fewer wrestlers that submit, and are approved for, a waiver to scrimmage with other schools with eight or fewer wrestlers up to two times per week during the regular season beginning in 2018-19.
Beaver Dam pitcher Dillon Livingston was named Co-Badger North Player of the Year alongside Waunakee’s Riley Ripp. The senior posted a 6-0 record for the Golden Beavers with a 1.34 earned run average. Livingston also batted over three-fifty on the season with 13 RBI’s.
