OHSAA announces next year's basketball divisional assignments

Published: June 22, 2017 12:00 AM

New divisional assignments for the 2017-18 winter sports of boys basketball and girls basketball have been released by the Ohio High School Athletic Association.

For the first time, competitive balance roster data was used in determining divisional assignments in basketball, which is the only OHSAA winter sport affected by the competitive balance regulation that OHSAA member schools adopted by referendum vote in 2014.

The divisional breakdowns in basketball were approved by the OHSAA Board of Directors June 1 during their June meeting.

Division assignments are based on gender-specific enrollment numbers provided to the OHSAA by the Ohio Department of Education. Enrollment figures are then modified in the sports football, volleyball, soccer, basketball, softball and baseball based on competitive balance roster data submitted by each school.
