                        ABOUT THE PAPER, PART 2: 1984 – 1989


   A great amount of the information listed below came from a paper I wrote in 1990-1992 while
obtaining my masters degree. Many different sources were used to gather this information including
the following:
        •   Interviews of different individuals around the state concerning volleyball; people
            interviewed included: Charlotte Basnett (first OHSVCA Executive Secretary), Chuck
            Braden (New Knoxville), Lucille Burkett (Shaker Heights, DGWS Chair), Hildred
            Byrkett (Troy), Chuck Dorsey (Jackson), Rod Ebright (Grandview Heights & Sports
            Imports), Dorothy Edwards (Elida), Diana Ford (Bexley), Lois Harkins (Federal
            Hocking), Randy Heath (Jackson Journal Herald), Margaret “Peg” Love (Department of
            Education), Bob MacFarland (Stow), Carol Mertler (Ashland College), Radonna Miller
            (Upper Arlington), Dr. Deborah Moore (OHSAA), “Bernie” Reinhardt (Lima Shawnee),
            Char Sharp (Archbold), Agnes Timmons (Barnesville), Dr. Jo Ann Tyler (Otterbein
            College), and Lori Wagner (Mansfield). If you know of someone I should interview,
            please let me know! I recently interviewed Sue Brady of Oberlin High School &
            Kathleen Harris of West Holmes High School. Coach Brady started teaching in 1958
            at Oberlin and began the girls’ athletic programs at that school. Coach Harris began the
            girls’ athletic program in the 60’s as well. It was a complete joy to listen to their
            memories!!!
        •   Books written about volleyball and various volleyball magazines
        •   The OHSAA office and past issues of their magazine, THE BULLETIN (1922-1940)
            and THE ATHLETE (1941-present); also booklets dealing with girls’ sports such as
            “Guidelines for Girls’ Sports Programs in Ohio” (1970); and the State Volleyball
            Tournament programs
        •   My own files, which included information about the Girls’ Volleyball Advisory
            Committee, the Ohio High School Volleyball Coaches Association including the
            OHSVCA newsletters and All-Star programs, the National Federation rule books, and
            bulletins from the OHSAA office
        •   The national office of the National Association for Girls’ & Women in Sports and the
            American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance for rule
            books, and other pieces of pertinent information
                                                                                                      4
         •   Donated material from various individuals such as Diana Ford, Margaret Love, and
             Chuck Braden


   The goal of this paper is to provide a background regarding the growth of the sport of volleyball
in Ohio and to record major information of the OHSVCA. It will be presented during the summers
of 2004 through 2008, the OHSVCA’s 25th anniversary.
   It will also give coaches/schools access to the history of their school in volleyball. If anyone
knows of a former coach that coached in the early years of the sport, please let that person know this
paper is available on line. Junior high/ middle school information will be kept to a bare minimum.


   As is always possible, an error could have been made in the spelling of a name, a year, a school
name, etc. I welcome any corrections and/or additions to this information (see the last page for
corrections). Please feel free to contact me at my home address of 29453 TR 212, Fresno, Ohio,

   If you have trouble sleeping at night, then this paper is for you!

          A BRIEF REVIEW OF THE BEGINNING YEAR OF 1983
  THE OHIO HIGH SCHOOL VOLLEYBALL COACHES ASSOCIATION


The beginning of the Ohio High School Volleyball Coaches Association came about primarily as
a challenge from Dolores Billhardt (she knew that more coaches involved would provide a
greater voice for volleyball to the OHSAA)
Rod Ebright, Chuck Braden, and members of the Girls’ Volleyball Advisory Committee got the
ball rolling after the November, 1982, Advisory Committee meeting at the OHSAA office
   o The first organizational meeting was held at Upper Arlington High School in Columbus
       on January 30, 1983; 1:00 p.m.; nearly 40 coaches attended on that snowy day
Rod Ebright presided over the meeting and some of the items discussed at the meeting included:
   o The official name of our association and the dues ($5.00)
   o The purpose and structure of our organization; classification of memberships
   o The association’s activities including organization and running of the state clinic, All-
       Ohio teams, the All-Star Match, milestone awards for coaching records; regulating
       volleyball statistics; involving the newspaper in printing our information
   o Writing a newsletter to be mailed at various times during the year
   o Having a general state meeting at the coaches’ clinic in August
   o The basis for writing the constitution and by-laws of our organization
   o The next meeting date was set for April 24, 1983 at Upper Arlington High School, 1:00
       p.m.
At the April 24th meeting the constitution and bylaws were accepted and ratified by the paid
members of the Ohio High School Volleyball Coaches Association
Officers were nominated and voted on with the following results: President, Rod Ebright of
Grandview Heights/Sports Imports, Inc.; Vice-President, Chuck Braden of New Knoxville;
Secretary -Treasurer, Midge Klingensmith of Upper Arlington; Recording Secretary, Jenny
Young of New Lexington; and (Acting) Past-President, Cathy Seipel of River View
                                                                                                   6
The August, 1983, clinic would be the last major duty of the Girls’ Volleyball Advisory
Committee to the OHSAA; the transition of power to the OHSVCA occurred and they would
begin making recommendations for the betterment of the sport to the OHSAA and conducting
the state coaches clinic
A general meeting of the OHSVCA was held at the 1983 clinic and Vice-President Chuck
Braden was busy presenting the new state poll, meeting with coaches that wanted to vote in the
poll; and presenting the procedure for the selection of players for All-Ohio; President Rod
Ebright presented the constitution and bylaws, the beginnings of the newsletter, and the
procedure for the first All-Star match to be held at Grandview Heights on Sunday, November
20th, at 3:00 p.m.
By August, many of the sixteen districts that make up the OHSVCA, had been formed and
selected a person to be their district director to the OHSVCA; district directors had the voting
power in the OHSVCA
The first state poll occurred September 13, 1983; final one was in November
Brief overview of the significant decisions/happenings for 1983 in the OHSVCA:
o Formation of District Associations
o The Top Twenty Rankings, All-Ohio selections, the All-Star Match
o Coaches awards (coach of the year and coaches achievement awards)
o The newsletter
o Volleyball Hotline (also known as the Code-a-phone)
o Newspapers providing more coverage; attendance improving during the regular season and
    the OHSAA tournaments
o Greater representation to determine concerns about rules and regulations
Numbers in the association by June of 1983: 80
                                                                                                   7

    The fourth Annual All-Star Matches were held at the Rike Center, Otterbein College,
    Westerville, Ohio, on November 16, 1986:
     o Players represented the 16 districts around the state and were all-stars in their districts
     o If a district did not have a senior all-star player, a player was selected from the list of senior
        All-Ohio players to fill in
     o Coaches were selected from the statewide All-Ohio balloting; the top two vote getters for
        Coach of the Year in each division were asked to participate in the All-Star Matches; if a
        coach was unable to participate, the person receiving the next highest amount of votes was
        tapped
     o Dr. JoAnn Tyler of Otterbein College helped with the hosting of the All-Star Matches
     o Officials that donated their time for the matches: John Campbell, Jerri Price, Mark Randall,
        Andrea Stuck, Don Miller, Sharon Congrove, and Jenny Seely

               THE STATE VOLLEYBALL COACHES CLINICS: 1984 – 1989


       The Girls’ Volleyball Advisory Committee of the OHSAA organized and conducted the state
       volleyball clinics from 1973 to 1983
       The state rules interpretation meeting and a lunch were provided at the early clinics and have
       continued as a part of the clinics (if the clinic was in August/September)
       The clinic was a one day event from 1973 to 1979; in 1980, the format changed to a two day
       clinic to accommodate the need for more information and the different level of coaches in
       attendance
       In 1977, the state championship coaches were asked to speak at the clinic
       The Ohio High School Volleyball Coaches Association have organized and conducted the
       state coaches clinics for volleyball since 1984
       The state volleyball coaches clinics has been one of the most well attended of the sport clinics in
       Ohio for the thirty years of its existence


1984 – MAY 4TH & MAY 5TH (Friday and Saturday)
The clinic was being held in cooperation with the OHSAA, the OHSVCA, the Department of Athletics
of Upper Arlington High School, and Sports Imports, Inc.; the clinic once again offered two different
levels of instruction for coaches based upon their experience in coaching; Head clinicians were Carol
Dewey, head volleyball coach of Purdue University, and Mike Hebert, head volleyball coach of the
University of Illinois; cost of the clinic (advanced registration) was $20.00 and was to be sent to Jenny
Young, recording secretary of the OHSVCA; a general session of the OHSVCA was held at the clinic
and included the election of a new secretary-treasurer; this clinic did not include a rules interpretation
meeting due to the date in May


1985 – JUNE 21ST & 22ND
The clinic returned to Upper Arlington High School, but the date was moved to June to accommodate
more coaches (many could not be released from school in May, or were coaching a spring sport);
making his first appearance in Ohio was the head clinician Chuck Erbe, head coach at the University of
Southern California; guest clinicians included OSU’s head volleyball coach Jim Stone & assistant coach

        THE OHSAA VOLLEYBALL TOURNAMENTS: 1984 - 1989
                                A FEW BRIEF FACTS


All schools were/are eligible for the OHSAA Volleyball tournaments as long as they were in
good standing with the OHSAA
Girls classification for the 1984 – 1985 school year was as follows: Class A: 0 – 153 (269
schools); Class AA: 154 – 321 (268 schools); Class AAA: 322 – 1191 (268 schools); total of
805 member schools; based on October, 1983, enrollment in upper three grades
Advancement through the tournament trail was/is as follows: the sectional tournament, the
district tournament, the regional tournament (also called the “Sweet Sixteen”); and the state
tournament (Final Four)
The tournaments are all single elimination tournaments
Seeding for the top teams occurs only at the Sectional level
The sectional and district tournaments are conducted by the six district boards in the state
(Central, Eastern, Northeast, Northwest, Southeast, and Southwest); the regional and state
tournaments are under control of the OHSAA
Teams were allowed to dress twelve academically eligible players for the tournaments; those
twelve could change throughout the tournament as long as they were academically eligible
The first state tournament ticket cost $2.00, the program .50 cents (1975); in 1983 and 1984
the programs cost $1.00, but the cost increased in 1985 to $1.50 and stayed at that price
through 1989
The 1984 state tournament was the last one to be held at Otterbein College, as the attendance had
outgrown the Rike Center; Dr. Jo Ann Tyler had been in charge of the first nine tournaments; in
1985, the tournament moved to the The Ohio State University, St. John Arena for one year with
Dr. Phyllis Bailey the tournament manager
After 1985, the tournament moved to the University of Dayton with Dr. Elaine Dreidame acting
as the tournament manager; the tournament was held at UD through 1990
In 1981, the state volleyball tournament started on Friday night with one class only playing their
semi-final matches that night; this had been recommended for several years by the Girls’
Volleyball Advisory Committee, but the OHSAA was slow to change the format to two days due
to the lack of revenue being produced; this format continued through 1987
In 1988, all semi-finals were played on Friday and all finals were played on Saturday
                                                                                              82
The semi-finals on Friday started at 12:30 & 2:00 pm for Class “AA”; the semi-finals for Class
“AAA” were at 4:00 and 5:30 pm; and the semi-finals for Class “A” were at 7:30 & 9:00 pm
The finals were as follows: Class “AA” at noon, Class “AAA” at 2:00 pm, and Class “A” at
4:00 pm
In 1989, there was a change in times for the semi-finals: Class “AAA” was played at noon &
1:45 pm, Class “A” was played at 3:45 & 5:30 pm, & Class “AA” was played at 7:30 & 9:15 pm
The finals also changed their times to the following: Class “AAA” was played at noon, Class
“A” was played at 2:30 pm, and Class “AA” was played at 5:00 pm
Another change would arrive in 1990 – the state was moving to four divisions in volleyball!
Classes had served the OHSAA volleyball tournaments from 1975 through 1989
                                                                       83
