The legislators also are seeking an explanation for the OSSAA board of directors voting against U.S. Grant and Capitol Hill football teams' request for independence at Wednesday's meeting.
“The OSSAA has ruled against the two schools dropping out of participation, citing reasons that compel us to dig deeper into their role and reasoning for such action,” Morrissette said.
The OSSAA press release explained that U.S. Grant and Capitol Hill were not asking to drop out of participation.
“Contrary to what is indicated in the press release from Representatives Morrissette and Cleveland, these high schools did not ask ‘to depart from the organization,'” the statement said.
The schools were instead asking for an exception to the OSSAA rule that prevents a school from becoming independent from the association in an individual sport.
