Next Season Panthers Will Return to Class A in Football
February 25, 2009 - As expected, the Knightstown Panther football team has returned to Class A in high school football.
The Indiana High School Athletic Association switched football playoff classes for 27 schools for 2009 and 2010 under its biennial realignment, which is based on enrollment.
After two years in Class 2A, the Panthers have been returned to Class A because of declining enrollment at the high school. Knightstown missed being a Class 2A school by six students.
Sectional assignments will be announced later this spring.
Columbus East, East Chicago, Westfield, Whiteland and Zionsville move from Class 4A to 5A; Anderson, Anderson Highland, Fort Wayne South, Indianapolis Arlington and South Bend Riley drop from 5A to 4A; Angola and Gary Roosevelt move from 3A to 4A; and Frankfort drops from 4A to 3A.
Also, Fort Wayne Harding, Indian Creek, Jimtown and Rochester move from 2A to 3A; Crawford County and Greencastle dropped from 3A to 2A; Eastern (Howard), Indianapolis Ritter, Park Tudor and River Forest move from A to 2A; and Eastern Greene, Knightstown, North Knox and Winamac drop from 2A to A.
The move putting the Panthers back in Class A opens up the probability that the school could rejoin longtime rivals Tri and Eastern Hancock in the sectional.
The enrollment figures – the total of boys and girls in grades 9-12 – were submitted by the member schools to the Indiana Department of Education and are used to determine which schools play in each of the five classifications. Football is reclassified every two years, while baseball, basketball, softball, and volleyball are currently in the second of a four-year cycle and will be reevaluated in two years.
