  1. My mistake - I took out Gavit and forgot to take out Clark. That would shift West Vigo to 3A and Adams Central to 2A. 63 in all classes from 1A to 4A.
  2. The DOE’s compass site shows last year’s (19-20) enrollments. Harrison is up 100 students over last year. The 2020 senior class had around 470. Their freshman class this year has 574.
  3. The alignment committees tend to prefer to modify the current alignment as little as possible. I think 6A is pretty easy. Sectional 1 Lake Central Crown Point Lafayette Jefferson Harrison (West Lafayette) Sectional 2 Penn Elkhart Portage Chesterton Sectional 3 Noblesville Homestead Carroll (F.W.) Warsaw Sectional 4 Carmel Fishers Hamilton Southeastern Westfield Sectional 5 Pike Avon Brownsburg Zionsville Sectional 6 Ben Davis Perry Meridian Southport
  4. I mistakenly included Barr-Reeve in 1A. No football for the Vikings. Adams Central would go to 1A and Madison-Grant would be 2A since they have a larger freshman class.
  5. With the consolidation of the Hammond high schools, and the addition of Dugger Union in 22-23 (needs to be included in the upcoming cycle), I think there will be 318 schools with football. That puts 32 in 5A and 6A, 2 of the lower classes with 63 and 2 with 64. I am not sure if there is an IHSAA policy on which class should have fewer schools, but in basketball they usually align 1A with the most and 4A with the least. The plan I read for the Hammond schools was to realign the district to split their enrollment somewhat evenly, which would put them around 1700 or so students in each high sc
  6. North semi-state representatives enter the west gates for the first and last games each day. South semi-state representatives enter the east gates for the same games. The middle game each day will use the north and south gates. I think anyone going to the game field has to have a temp check. Not sure about each fan entering the spectator levels. Cleanup between games could be about an hour. That is why the upper level is not open. It would add more time for cleaning.
  7. That is pretty much how it went. ACAC was pretty solid at the time and that sectional was really strong as well (as someone mentioned, the 1A state champ for 3 consecutive years came from that sectional, with 3 different schools). Heartbreak for SW in 00 but they would not be denied in 01.
  8. Semi-states would be relatively easy to do this year, especially the northern semi-states. South is a little tougher but there are some decent options. I like the 2 games at 1 site format that is used for basketball. Play on Saturday afternoon at 1:30 and 5:30. Here’s what I would like to see if this was possible: @Warsaw Hobart/Marion Pioneer/Luers @Kokomo Chatard/Marian Central Catholic/South Adams @Lafayette Jeff Merrillville/Westfield Valparaiso/Zionsville @Franklin Central Center Grove/Ben Davis Roncalli
  9. I don’t think Clinton Prairie would challenge the health officer’s order, but I would be interested in seeing it since this varies from county to county. Test everyone like Southwood did. If they come back negative, play. Traders Point may not agree to that though and it would put them in a difficult position. A school not far away changed their close contact policy to differ from their county health officer’s criteria (health officer said 3-6 feet is a close contact, school said only within 3 feet). The school board notified the health officer of their plan (basically to get the officer’
  10. Not a prediction, but some potential upsets: Avon/Brownsburg Pendleton Heights/Mount Vernon FW South/Marion Ritter/Danville Monroe Central/South Adams
  11. Not exactly the same scenario, but here’s a different example from Volleyball. A team that had a bye into the semi-final last Saturday morning was supposed to play the winner of the Tuesday night opening round game. On Friday, a member of the team with the bye tested positive, and most of the team was instructed to quarantine. This forced them to forfeit their Saturday morning game and ended their season. Instead of following the quarantine, all of the players except the one who tested positive showed up at the sectional semi-final that was played on Saturday morning (between the two t
  12. Central Catholic wins this sectional unless COVID/quarantine knocks them out.
  13. Frankfort has hosted a 1A boys basketball regional while playing in a 3A regional at another site (Greencastle). Richmond was supposed to host a semi-state several years ago but they were not allowed to play at their home site. So they gave up the semi-state and Southport hosted while Richmond played at Seymour.
  14. Count day was September 18th. Schools and corporations then have a reconciliation period that allows them to clean up any enrollment data they are required to report for funding (last chance to make sure you are claiming who you should and not claiming who you shouldn’t). That reconciliation period ends on October 14th. The DOE usually doesn’t post that data until about a month later.
