Three-class system proposed for basketball and volleyball

A possible new era in high school boys and girls basketball as well as volleyball could be on the horizon as the North Dakota High School Activities Association introduced its new three-class system proposal last month.

Under the three-division plan, schools with grades nine through 12 enrollments of 400 or greater would be Class AA, the next 32 schools less than 400 would be Class A and the remaining schools would be Class B.

Both Hazen and Beulah would be pitted in Class A according to the projected numbers. Center-Stanton would remain in Class B. Although the idea of a three-class system is not new, the current proposal is different than previous recommendations.
