5. I think it's having a level playing field

For most, high school is as far as they get in sports. So winning or placing in a regional or state tourney is the pinnacle for many excellent athletes. It is itís own reward, not the scholarship or the college acceptance. Itís not so much about having fun, very kumbaya, but about fair play and healthy competition.

Then for those who are good enough for college sports, it is unfair to be bumped down out of the running by those competing with an advantage.

It is a tricky issue, and there have been several heated threads on DU about this topic.
