Judge Says AAA's New Multiplier Can Go into Effect

AUGUST 3, 2006 - Posted at 2:36 p.m. CDT

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - A Pulaski County judge denied a motion today that would have reduced Arkansas' high school sports multiplier.  The ruling appears to open the way for the state's athletic season to start later this month with the same classifications as planned.

Circuit Judge Mary McGowan ruled in a lawsuit brought by an Arkansas Baptist parent, who argued that the new 1.75 multiplier to adjust enrollment figures for private schools.

Gary Holt, whose son is an athlete at the private Arkansas Baptist school, filed the suit.  He wanted to prevent the Arkansas Activities Association from using the new multiplier to adjust enrollment figures for private schools.

McGowan said in her ruling that "there is no evidence to suggest that the institution of the multiplier rule was anything other than in accordance with the rules of the association. " 

A hearing was held Monday, and lawyers submitted additional information to the judge Wednesday.
