Baseball, Softball Classifications Announced for 2017‐18, 2018‐19

Indianapolis (Local Sources) – The Indiana High School Athletic Association announces the new classifications for IHSAA member schools in
baseball and softball for the next two school years.

Sectional groupings for both sports will be announced in late August following approval of the IHSAA Executive Committee.

With the reclassification, Jasper, the defending Class 3A state runner-up moves up to Class 4A for the next two years.

Southridge will remain in Class 3A, Forest Park stays in Class 2A and Northeast Dubois, the defending local Class 1A sectional champs remain in 1A.

The enrollment figures, the total of boys and girls in grades 9‐12, were submitted by the schools to the Indiana Department of Education last fall and are used to determine the classifications in the sports of baseball, boys and girls basketball, football, boys and girls soccer, softball and volleyball.   Classifications for those sports were announced earlier.

Jasper remains in Class 4A for football, but moves up to 4A in boys and girls basketball and volleyball.  The Wildcats will compete in Class 3A in boys soccer and in 2A in girls soccer.  There are only three classes in soccer.

Southridge returns to Class 2A in football for the next two years where it will join Forest Park.

Forest Park and Northeast Dubois will compete in Class 1A in boys soccer and as will the Forest Park girls.

Southridge will compete in Class 2A in volleyball along with Forest Park.

Also, per IHSAA By‐Law, C‐2‐3c, any school has the option to play up one or more classes in any sport they choose for the two‐year classification period by notifying the Association Office.

Accumulated Tournament Success Factor points have been tallied from the previous two seasons and have been applied in placing those affected schools in their appropriate classification within each sport.
