COLUMBUS — Student-athletes who transfer will no longer lose a full year of eligibility.
While the competitive balance referendum was the hottest of topics on the OHSAA’s ballot this month, a handful of other measures were agreed upon either by membership votes or by decision of the OHSAA’s board of directors.
Chief among them is a change to the transfer bylaw that reduces the penalty for a transfer from one year to the first 50 percent of the maximum allowable regular season contests in any sports in which the student participated the previous year.
This change, which will be applied both retroactively and prospectively, passed 346 votes to 288 and becomes effective June 1.
