For the first time in a couple years, Dean Dompierre is in complete agreement with the Michigan High School Athletic Association.
Dompierre was pleased with the language in the proposed amendment to the MHSAA constitution that would provide studentswith disabilities to exceed the 19-year-old age limit to participate in athletics.
“I think the MHSAA leadership did an excellent job of wording it,” he said. “It’s pretty much what we’ve been asking for at least these last two proposals. It’s not limited to just one disability. It’s broad enough to cover anyone who meets the criteria. Yet it’s restrictive enough to make it difficult, if not impossible, for someone to abuse it.”
