COLUMBUS — The Ohio High School Athletic Association released its final enrollment qualifications for fall tournament. As expected, most teams from local schools are remaining in the same divisions.
The exceptions are the Highland and Utica volleyball teams, which now drop to Division III. Both were formerly Division II. Both schools saw female attendance figures at below 200, which is the cutoff for the D-II level.
Highland and Utica will now join Fredericktown, East Knox and Centerburg in the D-III postseason volleyball tournament. Mount Vernon remains at Divison I, while Danville stays at Division IV.
All other teams remain unchanged. Mount Vernon stays at D-I in all fall sports other than football, where the school will stay at D-II. Highland and Utica remain at D-II for golf and cross country. Centerburg, East Knox, Fredericktown and Danville are still in D-III for golf and cross country.
Centerburg’s girls golf team remains at D-II. East Knox soccer is also D-II.
