As a bird fan, I would hope our enrollment numbers shoot up. I am not a big fan of long bus trips and playing in 3A. We are proud of our tradition and taking on the best teams we can find to play. Cov Cath is returning to the team of old, Ryle and SK have very good programs. Why do we want the time it takes to get to a game be shorter than the game itself. This will happen with a running clock. No disrespect to some of the teams in 3A as I am sure a handful have good and proud programs; but 30n20 could be the dynasty cry. I would not be in a favor of it at all.

Folks need to keep in mind, that it's just someone's "plan" and the article does not identify that someone. To the best of my knowledge, the BOC of the KHSAA hasn't even begun to discuss the realignment issue nor has the KHSAA staff even presented any possible plans to the BOC members. This plan may some idea of a football coach, administrator or even one BOC member, but to the best of my knowledge it has not been ran by the KHSAA or the rest of the BOC members. So don't put too much if any credence in it.

 

The travel cost and time for the teams in the smallest and largest classes could be extensive and not in any way favored by the Supers. The Supers have taken a much greater interest in the KHSAA over the last couple of years, so their thoughts and opinions on matters will weigh heavily on what the KHSAA does with realignment later this late summer and early fall.

 

By the way, Ryan's proposed breakdown is based on doubling the boys enrollment. That's not the current way the KHSAA has done classification. It's done strictly on boys enrollment at each school, which is the correct way to do it.

 

Bottom line: don't get jacked up about what he has in his article or the proposed plan.

According to the article they would not be allowed to play up.

 

That could be interesting. If teams are not allowed to play up it will make a huge difference. Only having 16 teams in 1A and 6A would make some very hard traveling situations. I got to looking at the realigment and no one in the article in the 5A classes have won a state title in the last decade.

This is the plan that Julian Tackett is pushing for. I know that for a fact and since he is the most influencial person in high school administration I would say there is a good chance that it passes.

 

Also I believe that the class A would be split into 4 4 team districts and played at a different site than the other championships. Which in my opinion is good because its sad to see a 1A crowd in A big stadium. This i do not know about though.

 

Here is what I think that class A will look like.

District 1- Fulton county, Fulton city, Louisville HC, Eminence

District 2- Bellevue, Dayton, Fairview, Paintsville

District 3- Paris, Frankfort, Campbellsville, and Williamsburg

District 4- Phelps, Harlan, Jenkins, Pineville

 

District 1 is tough allignment.. Makes me wish that Fulton city and Fulton Co would consolidate and then alignment would be better

What does the crowd size have to do with single A school kids getting to play on a level playing field as everyone else? Bad idea. Keep them with the rest of the classes and who cares what the crowd looks like. It looks sad for all the teams IMO, but that is neither here nor there when discussing the best playing field for the State Championships.

That would be some pretty long trips for Bellevue and Dayton

I know for the upper classes the article does not factor in South Warren and the resulting drop in Greenwood and Warren Central's enrollments. Using the total enrollment that this article is using (which I agree with 3wishes, I believe is incorrect - it's male enrollment only), Greenwood would probably drop to the lower reaches of 5A, South Warren would likely debut in 3A or 4A, and Warren Central would probably drop comfortably into 4A rather than be its largest school at this point. East Jessamine would be pushed up to 5A by the addition of South Warren and Martha Layne Collins.
