The two-division format which currently exists in 1A for basketball, scholars bowl and volleyball, and in 4A for baseball, basketball, softball and volleyball, will be eliminated.
Football is evaluated biannually based only upon enrollment for grades 9, 10, and 11, with classifications for the next two seasons announced in October of an odd-numbered year. Schools with or fewer students in grades have the option to play Eight-man football instead of the traditional man game.
In man football, there are five classes 6A, 5A, 4A, 3A, Awith 32 schools in 6A and 5A, 64 schools in 4A and 3A, and the remaining schools 43 for and ; 41 for and in A. In eight-man football, there are two divisions of roughly equal size, with schools scheduled to compete in 8-man for the and seasons, decreasing to for and due to consolidation in many rural towns. Classes 3A and 2A will have 48 schools each, and Class 1A will have the remaining man football playing schools 31 in and District play was introduced to determine playoff participants in From throughonly district champions advanced to the playoffs.
Inthe top two teams in each man district began to qualify for the playoffs; district runners-up were added to the playoff brackets for 8-man in In those classifications, teams now schedule the first eight games on their own, with the ninth week acting as the first week of the playoffs.
Teams are seeded onto the bracket based upon overall record and divided into two groups of 16 based upon geography. The same format will be used in Class 4A beginning in Schools form leagues to compete against one another, and participation in a particular league is voluntary. Most schools in a league are located within a close geographic range. However, due to sparse population in western Kansas, schools in the same league are often separated by distances of more than miles, and in a few cases, schools are almost miles apart.
For example, in policy debate, there are state championships for 6A, 5A, 4A, and A combined. The meet, which features athletes from schools in all six classes, is one of the nation's largest high school meet, with more than 3, athletes participating.
The state track meet hosted its th competition in The eight-man championships are currently held at Fischer Field in Newton.
