Quapaw drops to Class A in football in 2014

The Quapaw Wildcats football team will drop from Class 2A to Class A for the 2014 and 2015 seasons, according to a tentative list of classifications released by the Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association.

Grove (5A), Miami (4A), Jay (3A), Wyandotte (2A) and Commerce (2A) are expected to remain in their current classifications.

Oklahoma’s 6A, 5A and 4A classifications are divided into the first three sets of the largest schools in the state. Classes 3A, 2A and A each consist of about one-third of the total number of the remaining 11-man football schools.

Classes B and C are made up of the 76 smallest schools that petition to play 8-Man football. The largest 40 schools make up Class B, while the next 36 make up Class C.

The tentative results give Quapaw an enrollment figure of 188.86, which would make it the largest Class A school for the 2014 and 2015 seasons.

The Wildcats, who finished 2-8 in 2012, will remain in Class 2A this fall.

Miami is expected to be the largest school in 4A with an enrollment figure of 668.7.

The 2014 and 2015 football classifications don’t become official until after the OSSAA Board of Directors approve the enrollment numbers on Aug. 14.
