Among items discussed was materials provided to the media by sites hosting SDHSSA events and the host site providing free Wi-Fi to all media covering the event. And there was a discussion about media press passes being abused by non media personell at the State Wrestling Tournaments. The SDHSAA staff is working to better enforce the use of media passes at the State Wrestling Tournaments. Finally it was brought up that Football stats not being recorded on the night of the game. School administrators/coaches are responsible for entering scores/stats and the SDHSAA will encourage schools to enter that information in a more timely manner.
