Pax, if Prairie Valley and SEW consolidate which teams get bumped to 1A and to A? Any guess?Originally posted by mharen:
Paxregis, maybe this will help a little with the projections. Here are confirmations on some of the "bubble teams" along with some of the no-brainers who have been confirmed.
In 3A: Humboldt, Greene County, Independence, Rock Valley, Bondurant, Nevada, and Gilbert.
In 2A: Centerville, Clear Lake, Williamsburg, MOC-Floyd Valley, Spirit Lake, Union LPC, Iowa Falls, North Polk, Estherville LC, Sheldon, Roland-Story, PCM, Sioux Center, South Hardin, Cherokee, West Central Valley, Tipton, Central Lyon, Aplington-Parkersburg, Clarion-Goldfield, Okoboji, Cascade, and Unity Christian.
In 1A: I-35, OA-BCIG, North Cedar, South Central Calhoun, Clarinda Academy, West Monona, Columbus Junction, Regina, Dike-New Hartford, West Branch, Eagle Grove, Wilton, St. Edmond, and Pocahontas.
Prairie Valley will also be in 2A if the sharing agreement with SE Webster gets approved next week. The IAHSAA is aware and in a holding pattern until they get the results of that vote. If the is no sharing agreement, PV will stay in 1A and my best guess is North Cedar would get bumped up to 2A.

Check that...PV coach says the state currently has them in 1A. So, I'm hoping one of you can confirm the classifications for any or all of the 4 schools I listed in my previous post. I'm missing one smaller 2A school and am guessing it's one of those four.
BTW...if PV joins with SEW, my guess is Unity Christian will drop to 1A based on their BEDs of 199.
Not sure if you are missing a 2A team. After switching classes for the bubble teams you've confirmed, I still came out with 56 in each class. Tipton, Okoboji & Cascade moved up. Prairie Valley, West Monona & North Cedar moved down. 3A/2A was a straight swap with Gilbert & Spirit Lake.
I looked again and I already had North Cedar as 1A, so Clarinda Academy was the third team to move down. Moving those teams in & out really changed the map. Adding two more teams to Northwest Iowa made for some ugly changes.Originally posted by mharen:
Clarinda Academy is 1A. They will not petition to stay in 2A (same class as Clarinda). Got this from administrator at Clarinda HS. He said the Academy has always automatically played in the same class as Clarinda HS to help with travel, but they have chosen not to this the next two years. So if you take Clarinda Academy out of 2A, what 1A school do you have bumping up to 2A?
On a side note, Woodward-Granger and Woodward Academy will stay in same class--1A.
Somebody stated on the 1A board that Collins-Maxwell/Baxter has been notified they are the bubble team and would drop to 1A if the vote passes tonight at SE Webster-Grand tonight. So the IHSAA is sitting on two different alignments for 2A/1A pending tonight's vote.Originally posted by Herdcyclones:
According to the linked article from the Fort Dodge paper, last night Prairie Valley approved whole grade sharing with SE Webster/Grand. SEWG votes tonite, which I'm gonna presume would pass. The article doesn't specifically mention football, but would the IHSAA wait for a vote tonite to the get PV/SEWG into 2A? I presume they would have prepped for that.
