Classification

Postby jake » Sat Mar 04, 2017 12:15 pm

This week the classification committee meets. Do not expect them to go back to 4 classes, even though many believe that is what is best for basketball. AA will become one region and play their tournament in Portland. The committee feels their only big decision is determining the numbers. As it is now with 5 classes schedules are a mess, rivalries have changed, travel for many schools has increased. Why would the Portland area schools want to travel out of the greater Portland area and not play their long time rivals home and away? Typically the committee only worries about balance, not what that balance does to scheduling they feel that is each schools problem not theirs. Interesting to hear others feelings.

I would like to see the return of 4 classes.

If we stay with 5 classes, then I'd like to see an open tournament. Trust me I'm not a everyone gets a trophy person , but the unbalanced schedules with the conference crossover is not fair to everyone. Just look at AA Boys north and south.

An open tourney wouldn't disrupt the bigger venues. Just play all first round games at the higher seed. Then 2nd round starts at the bigger venues. Also, kids would get an extra game and there is nothing wrong with that.

Potential Class AA changes could send Bangor teams to Portland for basketball tourney

Maine’s five-class format for high school basketball recently completed its second year, but momentum is building for changes to the large-school class. That means future Bangor High School teams may face longer postseason road trips in pursuit of state championships.

The future of Class AA basketball, both its North-South format and its tournament site, is expected to be discussed when the basketball committee of the Maine Principals’ Association meets March 31 in Augusta.

One possible change could replace the North and South divisions of Class AA and their separate regional tournaments with a single 16-team division and one championship tournament for the state’s largest basketball-playing schools.

So does the limestone / Caribou deal affect Caribous class status?

With or without the Limestone students, Caribou will be in Class B. Limestone only has like 50-70 students in the high school. The majority of students in their MPA numbers are from MSSM. MSSM carries between 120-130 on a yearly average.

I'd like to know what some of the names of the consolidated schools are being thrown around? I've heard someone in the know say Caristone. I don't know if they were joking or not. If they were serious that is a horrible name. When consolidating schools you come up with a completely new name, you don't take the two previous schools/towns and cram them together. Anybody hear any possibilities for the new name of that consolidated school?
