According to the Missouri State High School Activities Association Board Policy on enrollment and classification, all member school are classified annually based upon enrollment figures for grades 9-11 on March 15th of the year prior. The MSHSAA 2018-2019 Handbook further indicates that all schools participating in boys wrestling will be equally divided into four classes on the basis of enrollment for competition in the state wrestling series. Barring unusual circumstances, the MSHSAA office shall release district assignments on Friday November 9 for the 2018-2019 season.
With the release of the enrollment numbers there is “speculation’ on the district breakdowns. That can change with the drop of a hat as schools add or drop wrestling before the November 9th release. All eyes will be focused to see where teams will land for the 2018-2019 season!
