With an enrollment number of 148, Wabaunsee High School enters the year in the 2A classification.
The classifications shifted more than usual this year due to restructuring by the Kansas State High School Activities Association. According to WHS athletic director Jeron Weisshaar, the state wanted to reduce the number of classifications that had swelled in recent years. 1A and 4A will no longer be split into multiple divisions, and the discrepancy in enrollment between schools in the same class should be reduced.
Several 4A schools moved to 3A and some 3A schools dropped to 2A.
While football classifications were decided in the spring, the new classifications will affect other fall sports. Volleyball heads to Herington and Wabaunsee hosts cross country October 20. Girls tennis heads to Hesston Friday for the 3-2-1A regional.
