5 Class HS Hoops System Gains Committee Approval
A five class system for Maine high school basketball moved a step closer to reality today when the MPA Classification Committee approved a plan that will now go to the public for feedback.
The committee made some adjustments to the proposal as follows...
Class 1A Schools with enrollment of 825+
Class 2A 545 to 824
Class 3A 325 to 544
Class 4A 121 to 324
Class 5A 0 to 120
The committee also approved a reduction in Heal points differential from one class to another - from current 5 points down to 2 points.(This is for basketball only.)
The current system has 4 classes (A, B, C, D).
The road ahead for the plan looks like this...
-The MPA takes public feedback for the 5 Class plan
- The Classification Committee meets again on February 24th to make a final recommendation
- The full MPA would vote on the plan at its spring meeting set for March 26th and 27th
