NMAA Board of Directors meeting produces a few changes

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.(KRQE)- One of the changes coming out of the New Mexico Activities Association Board of Directors meeting Thursday was state basketball and baseball tournament format. The new format will go from 16 teams back to 12, starting with the 2018-2019 academic year. Football will get an earlier start in the 2018 season.

Games will be moved up a week earlier with the State Championships being decided Thanksgiving weekend. The rest of the meeting included enrollment number discussion. Boundaries for enrollment numbers were set for Class 6A through 2A. The changes are for 2018 to 2020. Before the meeting, there was a talk of the district going to a format similar to that of a conference in college athletics, but that did not happen.

The district format will stay in place at least until 2020. Starting with the 2018-2019 season basketball will start practice two weeks later, in mid-November.
