MSHSAA eyes Rock Bridge

The Rock Bridge athletic department is on the agenda for Wednesday’s Missouri State High School Activities Association’s Board of Directors meeting.

The school’s girls’ basketball team might have violated player participation rules.

The MSHSAA handbook limits the amount of quarters and tournaments played on lower and upper level teams in a season.

Players are not allowed to play more than five quarters in a day. Players are also not allowed to compete in two tournaments per week unless the tournaments take place during winter break.

MSHSAA communications director Rick Kindhart said the Rock Bridge athletic department has been under probation since last spring for multiple violations the past couple of years.

Kindhart said the board is “still in the fact-finding process” and that Rock Bridge might have violated rules inadvertently.

Rock Bridge athletic director Vicki Reimler declined to comment on the hearing until after Wednesday.

The hearing comes midway through a breakout season for the girls’ basketball team. The Bruins are 14-2 under first-year coach Kevin Giese with a game against Hickman on Wednesday night. Rock Bridge finished last year at 6-20.
