LHSAA agrees to terms with referees
BATON ROUGE - The LHSOA and LHSAA have agreed to a tentative deal that will keep the refs on the field this high school football season.
The terms of the agreement were not released. A member of the LHSOA tells WBRZ that more details might be released over the next 7 to 10 days.
The referees were asking for a 5 dollar increase per football game, which would cost schools an extra 35 dollars per home game. They were also asking for a 10 dollar increase for basketball and baseball games.
Right now Louisiana high school referees are among the lowest paid in the nation.
