Do to proximity several schools petition up. A few go down too for that reason, several schools are petitioning down football only. Castleford, Lakeside, Wallace, Shoshone and Wood River. Wood River not that competitive In football. Had decent teams before. I doubt they will let Castleford petition down if they are successful in football this year. Lakeside, Wallace proximity an issue I think. Shoshone played Jv last few years. Had several students play soccer at Bliss.
Proximity an issue for Carey. But there success no way they will let them petition down. May be down next cycle anyway. Will they finally miss state in basketball? Probably be semi final team at least in football this year. When will other sawtooth conference teams exceed there talent?
Sun Valley Community School petitions down every year. 2a enrollment. Kids play football at Wood River if they play. had Berth at State Tournament in volleyball last year but covid made them miss it. Basketball play in sawtooth. They only cover Wood Rivers base, Soccer powerhouse and ski and drama school. But at that enrollment they should have plenty of basketball players.
5a schools going to 4a several are. What will happen in the meeting?
I rarely support petitioning down. Divisions exist for a reason. I think that mentality is prevalent at the IHSAA and will make it truly a case by case decision.
