Reminder: End of Set or Match
Just a reminder that per the NFHS Case Book and Officials Manual on page 66, End of Set or Match Protocol ……..
While players on the court no longer have to go to the end line before they are released they do still have to proceed behind the R1's stand to the other side of the court. The team members walk in front of the officials' table to their new team benches. The players (on the court) proceed counterclockwise along the sidelines past the standards to their new team benches. If you have any questions please contact the IHSA Office.
