A 48-member committee that meets once a year on behalf of the Minnesota State High School League voted Tuesday against adopting boys volleyball as a sanctioned high school league sport.
The Representative Assembly legislative body of the MSHSL fell one vote shy of adding boys volleyball, meaning boys volleyball – which has around 50 member schools with teams – will remain a club sport rather than MSHSL-supported league.
The final vote was 31-17. Last year, the vote to adopt boys volleyball fell two votes shy.
Two-thirds votes (32 of 48) are needed to pass a proposal.
This is a developing story.
