Re: skin issues/state qualifications

As a ref, we know skin issues can destroy a team. One kids can destroy half to an entire team's post season, including his/her own team. I have been argued with about clearly oozing enfantigo(sp), obvious ringworm, staph, mrsa, you name it. As a coach and AD of a school, including parents, it is their job to see, identify, and medically treat the issue BEFORE you get to weigh-ins. Even kids with obvious excema and psorisas have sheets dates and clearly explained.
We can only error on the side of caution and it seems every is forgetting about the mat and spread of disease/infections. What about all of the other kids. This could have been avoided with medical examination PRIOR to Regionals.
You cannot blame a ref for doing HIS JOB.
As for someone sneaking through to state and forfeits? Sucks....I think this could have been avoided, but hey, what do I know, I cannot even spell the conditions correctly. .
