    6A Sectionals - Guessing game

    They would have to change the bylaws to allow a mid-cycle change. Also, the IHSAA would have to consider the precedent they set by making that change. It may work out during this cycle because of the location of the schools that would be effected. But what if the logistics don’t work the next time soemthing like this happens? What if Columbus East wasn’t moving up and it was Jeffersonville instead of Valpo switching classes? The IHSAA would not want to be in a position where they have to say: Well we made the change last time because it was easy to switch a few schools from the same area. It doesn’t work this time, so we’re not doing it.

    The closing of Southside was known in advance. However, there was no way to know what their combined enrollment would be. It’s not as simple as adding the 2 together. Central and Southside each had right at 900 students, but the consolidated Muncie Central ended up with around 1600. Many left to go to the surrounding county schools. The same could certainly happen for Elkhart. Adding the enrollments of Central and Memorial would put them at just under 3200. I would honestly be surprised if they even end up with 3000 when they merge.

    Southern Wells Coach

    They will probably have limited teaching openings to work with, especially if Mose does not find a job closer to home and ends up staying. If he leaves that would open a social studies position. SW has rarely hired a lay coach for football, boys basketball, or girls basketball. There are a few coaches I know of that teach social studies and might be a good fit if that is the teaching position they have to work with. I won’t speculate (I know, board rules), but there may be some interest from assistants (not necessarily social studies) at other schools. A couple have coached in the program before. They have pretty good gigs where they are now as assistants. The biggest challenge for whoever they hire will be to get the numbers built up so they can be competitive again.

    Southern Wells Coach

    He posted the following on Facebook: Southern Wells Community Members and supporters: I have decided to resign as Head Football Coach at Southern Wells. I would like to thank our administrators, staff members, community members, coaching staff and most importantly our players for the support throughout the last year. Being a Head Football Coach brought about a lot of challenges that I didn’t expect. At this time I feel that it would be best for a new leader to take over and lead this program. This was a extremely difficult decision to make but one that I think will be best both for myself and Southern Wells Football. I look forward to finishing the year off at Southern Wells as a teacher. In the future I would like to try to find employment closer to my family in Michigan as being away from them has been increasingly difficult. I would like to wish Southern Wells Football the best in the future. I will definitely always be rooting for the Raiders.

    6A Sectionals - Guessing game

    Just like the merger of Muncie Central and Southside, and the merger of Rockville and Turkey Run, the unified Elkhart High School will remain in the class the two separate schools are placed in for both years of the alignment cycle. The unified school will be in 5A for one year, then most likely move up to 6A in the next alignment cycle. The IHSAA won’t move them up because they have no way of knowing what the actual enrollment of the school will be until that school year (2020-21) begins. It’s too late to make a class change by that time, so they just keep schools in the class they are aligned to at the beginning of the cycle. If they did move them up, they would have to move the smallest 6A school down, which could require a shift in all of the sectionals in 5A and 6A.

    Northrop is the 33rd largest school, which moves them down to 5A. FWCS enrollments are Northrop 2032, Snider 1860, North 1550, Wayne 1369, and South 1358.

    Can this profile stuff be turned off?

    Apologies

    I did. I returned to the thread after I answered the required profile info and nothing was there. Not a big deal. It was just irritating after I wrote out a paragraph or two and didn’t get to submit it.

    Apologies

    Is it possible to recover something that had been typed in the reply field? I had written a response to a post and was about to click submit when the page changed to some garbage about updating my profile. I tried clicking back and nothing was there.

    It will depend on who is selected for the alignment committee. All it takes is one AD or administrator that wants to stack the deck in their favor or remove a school from their tournament path for as long as possible. Geography and logical groupings are often secondary to selfish motives.
  12. There will be 34 teams in 5A as long as Hammond Noll and Wood Memorial express their intention to play. I don’t think Trinity Lutheran is going to play, but if they did, then Greenfield-Central would move up to 5A giving that class 35 teams. 9 S.B. Adams LaPorte Michigan City Munster 10 Goshen Concord Elkhart Central Elkhart Memorial Mishawaka 11 F.W. Northrop F.W. Snider F.W. North F.W. Bishop Dwenger 12 Harrison (W.L.) McCutcheon Kokomo Huntington North 13 Whiteland Anderson Franklin Community New Palestine 14 Decatur Central Bloomington South Bloomington North Plainfield 15 Jeffersonville New Albany Floyd Central Seymour Bedford-North Lawrence 16 Castle Terre Haute North Terre Haute South Evansville North
  13. Coach was missing 2 teams from his 5A list. Huntington North and BNL.

    That is the exact alignment I posted for 6A before the forum crashed when I posted the numbers from the DOE back in November.
