CORRECTING A SCORE: We desire to have a perfect score list each week for reasons that follow. Sometimes we receive an incorrect score or make a wrong entry. To correct a score on our list, please E-mail blegg@iahsaa.org with the right information. The IHSAA score list is generated from school calls and E-mails to the IHSAA the night of the game and media reports. It is the basis for the IHSAA Official Play-off Standings and therefore critical to playoff determination. Our score list is posted before 6:15 a.m. each Saturday and the playoff standings in each conference/district are usually updated before 8:45 a.m.
