A few years back the state play offs had eight participating teams in each of the three classes, but because of the problem of hand- ling so many teams at one time the number of teams were cut in half leaving in 1957 only four from each class participating in the state finals. Thus only 12 teams have been in the state fin- als. four in each class. The major argt ment advanced Friday by coaches, writers and others for doubling the size of the field in the Class AAA t0urna merit was that it would permit four additional teams of champ. ionship caliber to have a crack at the championship. Top Teams Eliminated It was argued by the coaches that some of the state's top;rank ing teams have since the change been eliminated in regional play. This year the state's No. 1 rank- ed team. South Charleston was el- iminated this year. Other strong teams which failed to make it into the finals were Parkersburg Logan and Triadelphia. W. Gordon Eismon, executive secretary of the West Virginia Seqondary Schools Activities Com mission, said in Charles Town Tuesday that the eight-team pro- posal has some merit, but he did not know whether it could be, or would be adopted by the princi- pals since it presented a number of drawbacks. Eismon said the proposal would probably be pres- ented to the principals when they meet in Buckhannon, but he did not know whether it would be ac- cepted. "The main drawback is the problem of housing the additional teams," Eismon said. "We have our hands full now, and at Mor- gantown they have told us thdy simply could not handle any more teams." The tournament alternates an- nually between Huntington and Morgantown. Presents Housing Problem noted four more increase by AA eVents at the• same time son e where else", Ei mon said. He said this probably would not be sound from a financial standpoint since only the Triple A tourney would draw large crowds. Tourneys in all three classes now are held at the same time and same place. Eismon said the idea of holding the AAA tournament a week la- ter then the other two divisions also had been discussed. He said the commission was a- ware of what has been described as a basic weakness in the pres- ent x'egional divisions• During the 1961 regional playoffs, seven of the l0 top ranked teams in the Associated Press poll competed in two regionals-Nos. 1 and 4. When asked in Charles Town Tuesday about a report that a sug gestion had been made for re-alig ning the regional boundaries by adding Clarksburg to Region 2, Eismon said there are no plans at present. It has been suggested, Eismon said, but some study would have to be given the sug- gestion first to determine if it has any real merit. Robert J.
