KSHSAA classes to change in 2018-19

Classifications will be shifting for Kansas high school sports starting with the 2018-19 school year. Kansas High School Activities Association schools recently voted whether to adopt reclassifications for football and all other sports. The two proposals passed with the required number of votes, 145 for football and 177 for the other sports. For football, 6A and 5A will stay with 32 teams, while 4A no longer will have divisions. That class also will go to 32 teams. The 3A members will be the next 48 largest schools, the same number of teams that will be in 2A. Previously, football had a Class 2-1A level, but moving forward 1A will have its own 11-man level. All remaining 11-man teams will compete in 1A.

Support helps THS take 4th at state volleyball

Tonganoxie High advanced to Day 2 of the Class 4A Division I state volleyball tournament, thanks in large part to a rally for the ages. No. 4 THS had won its first set against No. 5 Andale, 25-17, but was down 16-1 against the Indians in the second set. “That was a pretty good little chunk of change right there,” said THS coach Tiffany Parker. A 15-point deficit certainly is, but from there on out, the Chieftains were money.
