Sports Briefs for Nov. 9, 2011: MCHS sports to move down a class in 2012

With the new student body count in, the Moffat County High School athletics program will move down a class beginning with the 2012-2013 school year.

Steadily decreasing for the past few years, the MCHS count came in at 600.5 students on Tuesday, according to MCHS athletic director Jeff Simon.

All sports will drop from Class 4A to Class 3A in the Colorado High School Activities Association while football will remain in Class 3A.

The move was contingent upon MCHS having a student body below 601.

The football program needed a count below 600 students to drop to 2A.

For more information about the class change, read Friday’s Craig Daily Press.
