MCHS sports could move down classes

The move from Class 4A to 3A for Moffat County High School sports may hit a snag when the new student enrollment is revealed.

MCHS Athletic Director Jeff Simon said all Bulldog sports would move down a class starting next year while the football team would make the move to Class 2A.

The move is contingent upon MCHS having an enrollment below 601.

With recent transfers, Simon said the number might be above 601, stopping the change in class.

According to the Colorado High School Activities Association handbook, CHSAA establishes enrollment classification ranges for two-year cycles.

New classifications are taken in odd years and established in even years, with the 2012 school year starting the new cycle.

In 2009, MCHS had an enrollment of 615 students, according to CHSAA.

For the 2012-14 cycle, the Class 4A count for all sports except football will be schools with between 601 and 1,410 students.

The MCHS football program, which currently plays in Class 3A, would only qualify for Class 2A if the MCHS enrollment is under 600 students.

Simon said the school expects to get the official count by the end of the week or early next week.
