The Montana High School Association Executive Board met on Monday to discuss items on their agenda.
The board approved the movement of the 2023 MHSA State AA-B Track and Field Meet from Gallatin High School to Butte’s Bulldog Memorial Stadium.
Dates for the meet will be May 26-27.
The MSHA board and staff noted the size of the track and field facility at Gallatin High School as a chief concern for the move.
Basketball’s shot clock installation in MSHA gyms for the upcoming season was also discussed in the meeting.
Schools will use a shot clock for varsity and sub-varsity games for the 2022-2023. If a school does not a have a shot clock installed, the school is required to contact both the MSHA and the opponents. Those games can be played without a shot clock.
