Moving on up: PIAA classification changes
New Oxford and York Suburban will each move up one PIAA classification for the next two seasons, according to the latest figures released by the PIAA. And they're among a slew of YAIAA fall sports teams that will be bumping up.
New Oxford's football team will move up from AAA to AAAA for the 2010 and 2011 seasons. The Colonials will be the second smallest quad-A school in District 3.
York Suburban football will compete in AAA the next two seasons, after spending the last few in AA.
Both schools made the District playoffs in their respective classes this year, but were eliminated in the first round.
In volleyball, four schools -- Susquehannock, Dover, West York and Kennard-Dale -- will bump up to AAA. Susquehannock and Dover were among the top four finishers in the District 3 AA tournament this year. The Warriors were PIAA runners up in 2008.
West York will also move up a classification in field hockey and boys' soccer, from AA to AAA.
Last but certainly not least, York Suburban boys' cross county -- the recently crowned AA state champions -- will push up to AAA for the next two falls.
