IHSAA Reviewing Basketball Classes

Aug 8, 2014

The Indiana High School Athletic Association is scheduled to vote in early October on a new class alignment for high school basketball.

Under the proposal, beginning in the 2015-16 school year, the largest 64 schools by enrollment would make up class 4A. That means that 16 sectional tournaments would be held, with all games on Saturday. The remaining schools in Classes 3A, 2A and 1A would be evenly distributed among 16 sections in each classification.

Currently, teams are equally distributed across all four classes. According to a release from the IHSAA, the new proposal attempts to address concerns from schools there is too large a discrepancy in size from the smallest to largest schools in Class 4A, and that the realignment would provide a better competitive balance.
