KSHSAA announces new non-football classifications
The Kansas State High School Activities Association has announced non-football classifications for the 2012-13 school year.
McLouth High's enrollment dropped from 166 students in 2011-12 to 149 this year, moving the school from 3A to 2A. The Bulldogs had already moved to 2-1A in football this year. MHS is currently the fourth-largest 2A school behind Prairie Village-Kansas City Christian (158), Elbing-Berean Academy (152) and Moundridge (150).
Despite slight shifts in enrollment numbers, other area schools did not change classifications. Tonganoxie checked in at 595 students — down from 620 a year ago — but remains in 4A. Basehor-Linwood (599) and Bonner Springs (708) will continue to join the Chieftains in 4A competition.
The remaining Kaw Valley League schools did not change classifications. Mill Valley (1,222), Turner (1,102) and Lansing (878) will remain in 5A, while Piper (563) and Bishop Ward (354) will stay in 4A.
