TOPEKA — The Kansas State High School Activities Association released its classifications for the 2020-21 school year, used for all sports and activities except football.

This is the second year where the KSHSAA has gone to 36 schools in each of the top three classes (6A, 5A and 4A), 64 schools each in 3A and 2A and the remainder going to 1A.

Newton remains in Class 5A at 1,027, 12th highest overall in the class and 48th highest in the state.

Hesston remains in Class 3A at 246, followed by Halstead at 233.

Remington remains in Class 2A at 150, followed by Sedgwick at 140, Moundridge at 117 and Berean Academy.
