IHSA Considers Rule Change(Springfield, IL) -- The IHSA is considering a new rule called the "Success factor," which would bump sports teams up a class if they continue to win in the state post season series.
The agency is reviewing a proposal that would require the state to look at a team's individual success and dish out points for each round of play.
For example, a team that makes it through round one and two of post-season would get one point. Tack on two points for winning quarter and semi-finals, and add another three for winning the state title.
Teams that get more than 21 points in three years, and those that gets at least six points a year for three years, would be bumped up.
