New Classes and Districts


Recommended Posts

Class 4 will be interesting this year. A school like Poplar Bluff only fits into District 1. I believe that every District 1 school will be returning. So who will be bumped from District 1.

 

Also, it is always interesting to see what they do with District 3. Are the western St. Louis schools going to be involved, or will it be the eastern KC schools? Or will it be a mixture of both? A couple years ago, they threw the curve ball of Eureka and Northwest heading west to district 3. There is never a real rhyme or reason to the MSHSAA thought process.

The schools that will be moving up to Class 4 will be:

Zumwalt North

Poplar Bluff

Oak Park

Chaminade

It seems crazy to me that they can come out with football and basketball districts in April so they can make schedules, but we don't get ours until Semptember why do they have to wait so long? They have the numbers why the wait? It would be nice to make schedules knowing who is in each other's districts.

You are assuming everyone is using logic to make their decisions. Or at the very least logic that makes the most sense to coaches and ADs.

MSHSAA directors are aware of the imbalance. They do base things on geography. The answer always is the goal is to determine the best in the state not 2-6.

 

A tough district actually can workout, if you get out. I have seen many a time that a Class 2-District 4 wrestler earns a medal at state by winning their quarter even though they are the #4 from the district.

Geography is used to an extent, but there are plenty of examples in wrestling and other sports that make no geographical sense. We traveled 4+ hours for Districts this year. If the cop out is we are only concerned with the best in state, why even mess with medals beyond first? It would save a lot of time and money.

 

Sure a tough district can work out. I had a kid get 4th in Districts this year and ended up 4th at State. I'm not for sure what that has do do with defending having districts with half of the teams fielding half a lineup or less.

With District re-alignments going to yearly instead of every other year, I wonder if they will try to attempt to address the ongoing competitive imbalance among Districts.

I thought that the Districts were going to be redone every year for football, but all other sports were going to stay on a two year cycle.

This was from the 2016 MSHSAA Annual Ballot

 

PROPOSAL 8a - (Annual Enrollment Collection and Classification Determination) - (PASSED) - 173 FOR, 135 AGAINST

 

Amends the By-Law 5.1.7 to allow football classification breaks to be made annually based on yearly enrollment data (rather than every other year.) (Beginning with the 2018-19 school year.)

I have read a recommendation from the coaches associations before that would make the Class 4 the 64 largest enrollment schools, the next 64 Class 3, the next 64 Class 2, and then make Class 1 the catch all. Makes good sense to me. This would help out because a majority of the Class 1 schools do not have a full team. Making Class 1 in the long run, I believe, a more competitive less watered down Class as well. But MSHSAA says "no way".
