  • FHSAA moves Tuesday's playoff game

    Santa Fe High School athletic director Michele Faulk has petitioned the FHSAA Board to move the Williston-Santa Fe Regional Semi-final State Playoff game to a larger gym.

    Her pleas were heard and Saturday, FHSAA ruled the Williston gym did not meet the size capacity to host a 3A playoff game and moved the Feb. 22 game to Bronson High School.

    Traditionally, the winner of the regional quarterfinal game hosts the game, but Santa Fe protested under a new rule enacted this season. The rule was adopted for crowd control purposes.
