Paul Anzano, the NJSIAA's legal counsel, is working behind the scenes to prevent a bill from gaining approval in the state Senate. The bill could change high school sports in New Jersey. "We have a lot of friends in the legislature," Anzano said at the NJSIAA's monthly meeting yesterday. "We're talking to state senators and educating them on the issue. " The state Assembly, by a 41-29 vote, recently approved legislation that would prohibit New Jersey public schools from joining athletic associations that charge "exorbitant ticket prices" for playoff games.

ROBBINSVILLE, N.J. - The good news for the NJSIAA is that the organization lost $33,692 during the school year that ended in June. That's good news because the NJSIAA, governing body of high school sports in New Jersey, had projected a shortfall of more than $260,000. "We're changing our model," NJSIAA executive director Steve Timko said after the NJSIAA's monthly executive committee meeting this week. "We made substantial cuts, but we've been able to provide much the same services.

The NJSIAA penalized the Holy Cross wrestling team for its decision to take part in both the Beast of the East tournament in Delaware and the Jackson Invitational on Dec. 18. "We told [Holy Cross officials] that they will have to forfeit their team points that they got in the Jackson tournament," Steven J. Timko, an NJSIAA assistant director, said yesterday. "They will also have to submit a corrective action plan. " But, after being told that the Jackson tourney did not keep team scoring, Timko said Holy Cross would only have to submit a corrective action plan.

Camden High School football star Sean Chandler says there's sometimes a lot of trash talking on the field. "It motivates some people and bothers some people," Chandler said. Starting this fall, athletes and coaches will be subject to new rules designed to discourage unsportsmanlike behavior, the organization that oversees high school sports in New Jersey announced Wednesday. Under a policy developed by the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association and the state Attorney General's Office and its Division on Civil Rights, officials will enforce rules designed to crack down on harassing conduct related to race, gender, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, or religion.

Several boys' basketball matchups in the approaching NJSIAA tournament have been changed, a spokeswoman for the athletic association confirmed yesterday. They have been altered in Group 3, which will start its tournament Feb. 26, and in the Parochial B tournament, to begin Feb. 29. In the original Group 3 bracket, Delsea was seeded sixth, Timber Creek seventh, Camden eighth and Central ninth. All four have new seedings, changing their matchups. "Delsea was misplaced and should have been ninth, based on its winning percentage" of .647, said Carol Parsons, the NJSIAA's associate director.

So much for that controversial proposal to create a statewide, non-public football conference. New Jersey Commissioner of Education David Hespe sent shock waves through the state athletic community on Monday by reversing an NJSIAA vote that would have removed all the non-public schools from their existing football leagues and placed them in their own conference. Hespe also reversed another NJSIAA vote to separate non-public wrestlers into four districts and one region during the first two stages of the individual state tournament.

Gloucester Catholic High School principal Ed Beckett on Friday sent an email blast to parents, alumni and friends of the school calling on them to petition the New Jersey Commissioner of Education to rule against two recent proposals that were passed by the NJSIAA. Beckett said the proposals to separate athletes in non-public schools from athletes in public schools in wrestling and football "would be disastrous for Catholic schools throughout the state. . . . " Beckett said Commissioner of Education David Hespe will issue his ruling on the two proposals on Dec. 28. Beckett called on the recipients of his email to reach out to Hespe and urge him to rule against the proposals.

EDISON, N.J. - The future format of high school sports in New Jersey was cast in doubt by two historic votes Monday by the general membership of the state's governing body. By convincing margins, members of the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association approved proposals that will separate athletes who represent non-public schools from athletes who represent public schools. The most significant vote came on the proposal to create a statewide, non-public football conference, which will remove all non-public schools that play football from their existing league or conference.

Holy Cross football coach Frank Holmes gets fired up about weight-room workouts, offensive-line play and the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association's plan to change the landscape of his beloved sport. Holmes believes South Jersey has found a way for public and non-public programs to peacefully coexist under the auspices of the West Jersey Football League. He can't understand why the NJSIAA is asking its general membership to vote Monday on a proposal that would create a statewide, non-public football conference that could create an air of uncertainty around the sport that borders on chaos.

Tony Mitchell has watched South Jersey football teams work out scheduling issues through cooperation, compromise and the creation of a super-conference that, come September, should include "every team from Trenton to Wildwood. " Mitchell, the veteran athletic director at Paul VI High School, doesn't understand why the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association is pushing a plan that would "blow up" the progress made in his part of the state. "It makes no sense to me," Mitchell said Wednesday after a highly contentious meeting of the organization's executive committee at the NJSIAA's headquarters in Robbinsville, Mercer County.

A largely unenforceable law might look good on paper. It might sound good to folks who think high school sports is wandering too far down the road paved in fool's gold by the professional and major-college ranks. It might feel good to legislators and educators and anyone else who wants to do something - anything - to curtail the culture of corner-cutting and rule-bending and system-gaming and look-the-other-way-ing that is putting down roots in youth and school sports. But a largely unenforceable law still is a largely unenforceable law. And that's the biggest problem with legislation proposed by State Sen. Richard Codey (D., Essex)

During a break in the team wrestling championships last year at Sun National Bank Center in Trenton, fans were forced to wait outside in the snow for nearly an hour while the facility was rearranged for the final session.

" Timko announced at the NJSIAA's first executive committee meeting of the school year on Wednesday that the wrestling team championships would move back to Pine Belt Arena on the campus of Toms River North High School.

As an assistant director of the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association, Donald E. Danser was not a 9-to-5 kind of guy. Mr. Danser was the tournament director for track and field and cross country competitions run by the NJSIAA since 2001. "He would come back here after games and work through the night" at the agency offices in Robbinsville, Mercer County, colleague Helen Goubeaud said. As editor of tournament programs, she said, his after-dark work involved "updating the programs for the next event," so that "every kid's name was in it. " "He made sure that everybody got his due. " On Monday, June 15, Mr. Danser, 69, of Mount Holly, a former Rancocas Valley Regional High School head cross country coach, died of a heart attack at home.

This will be a weekend that senior Ryan Shinn and his Northern Burlington County baseball teammates will never forget. It's also one that requires discipline, along with the type of clutch play that has characterized the Greyhounds' 27-4 season. Northern Burlington will face South Plainfield (23-8) on Saturday in the state Group 3 championship at Toms River North. The Greyhounds will compete in its first state baseball championship in school history. The NJSIAA has been conducting a state baseball tournament since 1971, so it's been a long time.

ROBBINSVILLE, N.J. - Don Bosco Prep at St. Joseph on a Saturday afternoon in Hammonton? Bergen Catholic at St. Augustine Prep on a Friday night under the lights in Richland? Those intriguing football games could be a reality in 2016 under the broad outlines of a proposal that would dramatically change the landscape of football in North Jersey and could impact some South Jersey non-public programs as well. "I think it's a very feasible proposal," NJSIAA executive director Steve Timko said Wednesday after the organization's final executive committee meeting of the school year.
