CHAPEL HILL– The North Carolina High School Athletic Association announced today that 127 member schools in the NCHSAA were ejection free in their athletic contests during the 2013-14 school year.

The schools were recognized at the Association’s regional meetings across the state. The 127 schools represented 31.8 percent of the NCHSAA’s member schools, based on the 399 member schools last year.

Two schools, Ocracoke and Southside in Chocowinity, successfully completed their 10th consecutive ejection free years, one of the milestones that the NCHSAA tracks.

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 started 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, and there were 127 ejection free schools during the 2011-12 academic year. The total for 2012-13 was 128 schools.

“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 ejection free.”

All schools with no ejections for the year received a certificate of recognition at the NCHSAA regional meetings across the state. North Carolina Farm Bureau sponsors this as part of its initiative with the NCHSAA.
