ALL OTHER SPORTS:Class 4A will be divided into two divisions for volleyball, basketball, softball and baseball but will remain the same in all other sports. There is no news whether Wellington will be in either DI or DII for all other sports.If Wellington is in D1, it will probably have Andover Central to deal with which dropped from Class 5A.Wichita Collegiate also dropped out in all other sports in Class 3A, although it may just be temporary. Collegiate at 249 is the largest Class 3A school and was just two students from going into 4A.All other Sumner County schools will remain intact. Close Forgot password?

Thank you for your input. -3 Vote up Vote down Guest · 358 weeks ago While good news for Wellington to have Collegiate out of 4A, your heart has to go out for Conway Springs and the other 3A schools to have to deal with Collegiate, which is even more unfair, due to their smaller size, than the current 4A classification. The KSHAA has, along with most other States, recognized that to give kids/schools a fair chance at success the size of a school matters. That well thought out system of fundamental fairness that extends well beyond football, and to all of the other activities as well, is defeated by schools who somehow seem to consistently draw kids from other districts. It appears to be a problem that the KSHAA has no intent to address, and if you want to see how long it has existed, you can view a 2009 tape at the Catch it Kansas site of the discussion of the last League that Collegiate blew up, which League was forced to accept Collegiate in the first place. At any rate, we are proud of all of our students and their participation in all of the various school activities.

And until KSHSAA opens their eyes to the obvious recruiting performed by private schools, this will be the case. Ask Circle how they felt about loosing the Ehm kid, and ask Rose Hill how they felt about loosing two of their players and even if it was private school to private school…I am sure Kapaun wasn’t happy the year before that. If they are able to rake in players from surrounding districts/schools and build power house teams…then how is every body expected to compete with them on “a level playing field”? And believe me Conway Springs isn’t happy about them dropping to 3A…and they do verbalize their displeasure, maybe not on this website…but it does happen. It is a very valid complaint. What if a community school like Wellington was able to pull in all of the top athletes from the surrounding communities (South Haven, Caldwell, Argonia–, give them “special” rates and considerations- As soon as that can be done without penalty and sitting out…then we can talk even playing field.

Tweet this comment Cancel Submit Comment Subscribe to None Replies All new comments by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow â€”Â When it comes to post-season play and scheduling, it means everything. The highly anticipated Kansas State High School Activities Association classification and enrollment lists for football and all other sports were released today. The lists are based on school enrollments and determines which schools will be competing against the other in post-season competition. The football classification list is for the 2014-15 and 2015-16 academic year and released on a bi-annual basis. Another classification list includes all other sports for the 2013-14 season.See classification lists here:Football Classifications 13-14School Classifications13The analysis:Â FOOTBALL CLASSIFICATIONS:Â Sumner County schools will see little change in its football structure the next two years compared to what it is this year. As always, though, it isn’t just about the schools themselves but their opponents.Wellington will be part of the new Class 4A Division 1 classification. South Haven will drop from 8-man Division 1 to Division II. All other Sumner schools will remain the same.Wellington is in Class 4A DI. Class 4A is currently a classification of 64 schools, but will be divided into two groups next season. The top 32 populated schools will be in Division 1 and the bottom 32 teams will be in Division II.Wellington had 362 students this fall for students freshman through junior year which was enough to put it in the upper 32. Other schools of interest in Div. 1 will be: Andover Central 549, Augusta 477, Buhler 467, El Dorado 414, McPherson 527, Mulvane 413, Rose Hill 445, Circle 397, Ulysses 367, and Winfield 513.Going to Class 4A Div. II will be Andale 325, Clearwater 266, Holton 254 and Wichita Trinity 237 among others.What does this mean? Wellington won’t have to deal with the 4A DII schools in post season play but will do so in 4A DI. So no Andale and no Collegiate for post-season play. But don’t be surprised that Ulysses will become a permanent annual opponent with Wellington fans making a trek out west every other year.Speaking of which: Where is Collegiate? The Spartans are now in Class 3A with 189 students. That’s good news for Class 4A opponents but bad news for Conway Springs and Belle Plaine which will probably have to deal with the Spartans in some way over the next two years as far as post season football play is concerned.Both Sumner County schools are entrenched in the Class 3A 64-team division, the last to remain that way in football starting in 2014. Conway Springs had 164 and Belle Plaine had 136.Â Cheney, Scott City, Silver Lake, Pittsburg Colgan, Caney Valley, Garden Plain and Douglass are also in Class 3A. Cardinal fans you can groan now. Scott City was two students from going back into 4A. So now you have Collegiate and Scott City starting in 2014. Oxford will be the only Sumner County school in eight-man Div. 1 with 78 students. Other schools of interest in that classification are: West Elk 78, Sedan 86, Flinthills 72, and Udall 79.The newly merged Argonia-Attica football team still didn’t have enough combined enrollment to get into eight man Div. 1. It’s combined enrollment of 63 makes it the largest “school” in the eight-man DII division.South Haven dropped back into D2 with 54 students. Caldwell has 48 students.
