  1. If Ole Miss did end up in 3A, I could see them moving into sectional 27. Concordia is the best team in the current alignment of that sectional. Delta and Marion both had a higher Sagarin rating than Concordia last season, and Ole Miss beat both of them to win sectional 20.
  2. Mississinewa could drop down to 3A for the next cycle.
  3. Did you look at the enrollment trend of both schools? North Clay Middle School and Northview High School have both had declining enrollments for at least the last 5 years. North Clay has gone from over 860 to just under 800, and Northview has gone from 1050 to 975.
  4. Northview is a neighboring school for both Terre Haute schools and they have 975 students. Owen Valley is not too far away and their enrollment is around 715. Northview can compete with THN and THS in several sports, but Owen Valley would struggle. Mooresville, Plainfield, and Decatur Central are all about an hour from Terre Haute, and Martinsville is about an hour and 20 minutes. I don’t see any of those schools being eager to leave the Mid-State Conference to pair up with THN/THS, and the other Mid-State schools farther east would have no interest in bringing them into the conference. They would be a competitive fit in the Mid-State, but not a good geographic fit. That is probably the best place those two schools could go.
  5. I would not expect Conference Indiana to be around in 5 years. It will take the collapse of that conference to get Columbus North to move to the same conference as Columbus East (more trophies for everyone in Columbus if they aren’t competing with each other). From a competitive standpoint across all sports, I think it makes sense to have Madison, Silver Creek, Seymour, Jennings County, Scottsburg, and Brownstown Central in a 6 team conference. Then the Hoosier Hills can stay an 8 team conference by adding Bloomington North, Bloomington South, and Columbus North to the remaining 5 members (Columbus East, BNL, Floyd Central, New Albany, and Jeffersonville).
  6. I’d like to see all games prior to Labor Day start at 8, all games for the rest of September start at 7:30, and all games in October and November start at 7.
  7. Torn down. Elmhurst has somehow reappeared on the IHSAA membership map, even though it has been closed for a decade and the building no longer stands.
  8. This past season: 1. MIC 2. HCC 3. SAC 4. DAC 5. Mid-State 6. SIAC
  9. There are far too many divisions within the South Bend school district that don’t align from one school level to another. In my opinion, the kids that go to the same elementary should then attend the same middle school. The kids that attend the same middle school should then attend the same high school. There is no “feeder” system that connects any of the schools. I would propose that district lines be redrawn to cover all levels (elementary, middle, and high school. Two possibilities would be to go with a 3 high school plan (Adams - NE, Riley - S, LaSalle - NW) or a 2 high school plan (Adams - E, LaSalle - W). If the 3 high school plan is favored, then each should have 2 feeder middle schools (6 total in the district). The district boundaries for the 2 middle schools that feed into each high school should be the same as the boundaries for the high school. Each middle school would then have 2 or 3 feeder elementary schools. Those elementary schools should have the same boundaries as the middle schools they feed into. If the 2 high school plan is favored, it’s pretty simple. Split the district in half with 1 high school on each side (probably Adams and LaSalle for central locations). 3 middle schools on each side. I’m not sure if the existing facilities would be able to accommodate 2300 or so students. Under a 3 high school plan, I think they would need to consolidate Clay with Washington at LaSalle as LaSalle Lions suggested. Clay could then become a middle school. Washington would also convert to a middle school, basically taking the place of Dickinson. Dickinson will then convert to an elementary that consolidates students from Warren and Coquillard. Those two schools would close. Tarkington would also consolidate with Swanson, which would close. The district would then be divided with uniform district lines like this: Adams HS - Jefferson & Edison MS - Tarkington, McKinley, Madison, Nuner, Darden Elem’s Riley HS - Jackson & Navarre MS - Hay, Monroe, Marshall, Harrison, Lincoln Elem’s LaSalle HS - Washington & Clay MS - Dickinson, Muessel, Wilson, Kennedy, Marquette Elem’s
  10. My bad. Scottsburg is at 771, which puts them at #130 between Brebeuf and Hammond Clark. I can’t edit my original post, but I can repost the full list sometime. My 2nd paragraph in the original post talks about that where it says “A couple notes to make: Elkhart...”
  11. How about (never going to happen): DT’s HHC vs MIC Challenge Avon vs Carmel HSE vs Warren Central Brownsburg vs Center Grove Fishers vs Ben Davis Westfield vs North Central Noblesville vs Pike Franklin Central vs Lawrence Central Zionsville vs Lawrence North
  12. Their senior class this year has around 450, and grades 9-11 all have right at 500. The 8th grade class from their 3 feeder schools totals 572. Not all of those will end up at Harrison, but even if it ends up being 550, that could be a net gain of 100 students. Two things may save them from 6A for one more cycle - Elkhart consolidation and success factor. They’ll probably be cheering for New Pal to win at least a regional next year.
  13. School enrollments for the 2019-20 school year have been posted by the DOE. This year is NOT a “count year” for realignment, but these numbers may give some indication of enrollment trends and possible movement for the next alignment cycle. This year (19-20) is the first of a 2 year cycle, with the next realignment beginning with the 21-22 school year. Next year’s enrollment numbers (20-21) will be used to set the next realignment, not the numbers listed below. I included only schools that play football. A couple notes to make: Elkhart Central and Memorial will consolidate next year. If you look at the consolidations in Anderson, Muncie, and Parke County in the last decade, the consolidated schools have retained between 89%-93% of the combined enrollment of the 2 consolidating schools the year prior to merging. Using the middle of that range, 91% of the combined enrollment of Central and Memorial would put them around 2880 students. I think there will be some growth at Jimtown, Elkhart Christian (no FB) and possibly Northridge next year when the Elkhart schools merge. There are 4 IHSAA member schools (2 that have football) that do not share enrollment data with the DOE - Culver Academies, Park Tudor, University, and FW Canterbury. I left their enrollments as they were for last year. That isn’t accurate, but it “holds their spot” in the enrollment data. I included Dugger Union even though they are not tournament eligible to see where they would align when they become tournament eligible. I did include Hammond Noll, but did not include Wood Memorial or Trinity Lutheran. 1 Carmel 5400 2 Ben Davis 4554 3 North Central (Indpls.) 3747 4 Warren Central 3677 5 Fishers 3632 6 Hamilton Southeastern 3380 7 Pike 3364 8 Penn 3323 9 Lake Central 3256 10 Avon 3097 11 Noblesville 3026 12 Franklin Central 2936 13 Crown Point 2849 14 Brownsburg 2801 15 Lawrence North 2626 16 Center Grove 2604 17 Homestead 2480 18 Carroll (F.W.) 2442 19 Westfield 2419 20 Perry Meridian 2380 21 Portage 2372 22 Southport 2293 23 Lawrence Central 2290 24 Indianapolis Arsenal Tech 2129 25 Zionsville 2089 26 F.W.

  14. Those are the enrollments from the 18-19 school year that the IHSAA used for the class alignment that began this year. The numbers I posted are the enrollments for the current school year (19-20). That data comes from the Department of Education.
