In its board of directors meeting Thursday, the PIAA made a slight change to the regular-season football schedule and full contact practices.

A recommendation to extend the regular season by two days was approved 22-9 to allow a JV matchup on Monday.

• After a 31-0 vote, the board added the total amount of time of weekly hitting at practice may not exceed 90 minutes.

• The board also denied an appeal filed by Sto-Rox to drop down to Class A for football. The district submitted incorrect enrollment figures, which led the PIAA to slot the team in AA.
