The Kansas State High School Activities Association has released the classifications for all sports, except football, for the current school year. The numbers are based on enrollment in 10th-12th grades.
Some of the most interesting changes aren’t too surprising.
As expected, Andover has joined Andover Central in Class 5A. Valley Center has dropped from 5A down to 4A, while Maize South enters in at 4A.
Independent has dropped down to 3A (this should affect tennis the most because it puts the Panthers back in with Collegiate and Conway Springs). Hutchinson Trinity has dropped from 3A to 2A.
