IHSAA Announces New Sectional Groupings For 2019-20 School Year

The new groupings are for boys and girls basketball, boys and girls soccer, football and volleyball.

(Indianapolis, Ind.) - Sectional groupings will look a little different when the 2019-2020 Indiana high school sports season starts. 

The Indiana High School Athletic Association Executive Committee announced Monday their approved sectional groups in six team sports: football, boys and girls basketball, boys and girls soccer, and volleyball.

The newly announced alignments which follow class realignment announced in February, will be in place for the 2019-20 and 2020-21 school years.

In football, East Central will welcome some new challengers in their Class 4A sectional, including Jennings County, Madison, and Greenwood.

Falling out of Class 4A is Franklin County. The Wildcats will instead compete in a 3A sectional that features EIAC rivals Lawrenceburg, Greensburg, Batesville and Rushville.

Milan will also drop down a class in 2019. The Indians find themselves in a 1A sectional that features Oldenburg Academy, North Decatur and South Decatur.

In boys basketball, the biggest shakeup comes in Class 2A with the realignment of what has become the South Ripley sectional, which will only include five teams the next two seasons. Triton Central replaces both Switzerland County and Southwestern (Hanover).

Another change that will affect both boys and girls basketball is the reclassification of Connersville, who will compete at the 3A level this season against the likes of Lawrenceburg, Batesville, Franklin County and South Dearborn.
