127 NCHSAA SCHOOLS ARE EJECTION FREE FOR 2011-12 PDF Print
Written by Rick Strunk

The North Carolina High School Athletic Association announced today that 127 member schools in the NCHSAA were ejection free in all of their athletic contests during the 2011-12 school year.

The schools were recognized at the Association’s recently completed regional meetings held across the state. The 127 schools represent 32.6 percent of the NCHSAA's member schools, based on the 390 member schools last year.
Two schools, including Jones Senior and Gray Stone Day in Misenheimer, completed their fifth consecutive year without an ejection in any sports. The guidelines record ejections for unsportsmanlike acts such as fighting, taunting, profanity, obscene gestures or disrespectfully addressing or contacting officials.
The 2006-07 academic year was the best since the NCHSAA starting tracking ejections in 1997, with 202 schools earning ejection free status, which represented 54.8 percent of the member schools in that year. There were 113 ejection free schools in 2010-11, or 29 percent of the membership.
"We are proud that 127 schools were ejection free last year," said NCHSAA commissioner Davis Whitfield, "but we have to continue to make sportsmanship a priority and not lose focus until all member schools are also ejection free."
All schools with no ejections for the year received a certificate of recognition at the recently completed NCHSAA regional meetings across the state. North Carolina Farm Bureau sponsors this as part of its initiative with the NCHSAA.
