Baseball, Softball Teams Reassigned to Different Sectionals
Decisions Made on Wrestling, Gymnastics Coaches Rule Proposals
During its final meeting of the 2012-13 school year, the IHSAA Executive Committee approved the sectional reassignment of several baseball and softball teams and also ruled on coaches proposals in the sports of gymnastics and wrestling.
Due to IHSAA By-Law 2-5 (Tournament Success Factor), three baseball teams and two softball teams earned enough points in the previous two school years to play up one classification in the next two school years. The original realignments for 2013-14 and 2014-15 were announced on April 29 for baseball and softball.
In baseball, Western will move up to Class 4A, Sectional 7, Northfield will be placed into Class 3A, Sectional 23, and Lafayette Central Catholic will play in Class 2A, Sectional 34.
In turn, New Palestine will drop to 3A and play in Sectional 26, Tipton will move down to Class 2A, Sectional 39, and North Miami will play in Class A, Sectional 50.
In softball, Adams Central will move up to Class 3A, Sectional 23 and Lakewood Park Christian will be placed in Class 2A, Sectional 36.
To accommodate those schools, Tipton will drop to Class 2A, Sectional 39 and North Miami will move down to Class A, Sectional 50.
