Classification Changes For Next Year


The CHSAA CLOC committee met today and finalized breakpoints for the 2018-20 cycle for cross country and track and field. Here are those breakpoints:

Cross Country: 5A - 1520 and up; 4A - 788 to 1519; 3A - 304 to 787; 2A - 303 and under

Track and Field: 5A - 1514 and up; 4A - 788 to 1513; 3A - 298 to 787; 2A - 94 to 297; 1A - 93 and under

These breakpoints are based on the just-completed October enrollment counts made across the state.

This means we'll be seeing a relatively modest number of classification changes. I do not promise that what follows is an exhaustive list, but it should capture at least nearly all of them.

Coronado - Down from 5A to 4A in both track and cross country

Pomona - Down from 5A to 4A in both track and cross country

Vista Ridge - Up from 4A to 5A in both track and cross country

Pine Creek - Up from 4A to 5A in both track and cross country

Grand Junction Central - Down from 5A to 4A in cross country only

Conifer - Up from 3A to 4A in track and cross country

Steamboat Springs - Up from 3A to 4A in track and cross country

Pueblo Central - Up from 3A to 4A in track and cross country

Denver North - Up from 3A to 4A in cross country (was already 4A in track)

Vanguard - Up from 2A to 3A in track and cross country

Resurrection Christian - Up from 2A to 3A in track (was already 3A in cross country)

Cedaredge - Up from 2A to 3A in track (no cross country program)

Centauri - Down from 3A to 2A in cross country only

St. Mary's - Down from 3A to 2A in cross country (was already 2A in track)

St. Mary's Academy - Down from 3A to 2A in cross country (no track program)

Trinidad - Down from 3A to 2A in track (no cross country program)

Platte Canyon - Down from 3A to 2A in both track and cross country

Caprock Academy - Up from 1A to 2A in track 

Plateau Valley - Up from 1A to 2A in track 

Holly - Up from 1A to 2A in track

Miami-Yoder - Up from 1A to 2A in track

Akron - Down from 2A to 1A in track

Cripple Creek-Victor - Down from 2A to 1A in track

In theory, the Regis Jesuit girls division would qualify to compete as 4A, but the Raider girls have recently stayed up in 5A with the boys. It probably makes scheduling easier that way.

Give me a week or so and I should have new 2018-20 classification "leagues" made up so that you can get to work on virtual meets based on the new classifications.

When the cross country committee meets and new regional alignments are hammered out, I'll create a new set of cross country regional "leagues" for next year as well.
