Boys volleyball loses state vote

A proposed bylaw amendment to add boys volleyball to the Minnesota State High School League’s programming of co-curricular opportunities today fell just short of the required votes for passage from the 48-member representative assembly legislative body on May 10.

The proposal to sanction Boys Volleyball and amend Bylaws 501, 502 and 520 was defeated by a vote of 31-17. A two-thirds majority, or 32 votes, was required for passage.

Boys volleyball has been considered for sanctioning in previous years. It could be a future proposed amendment considered again by the representative assembly. Cloquet and Esko have two combined boys volleyball club teams competing.
