The following schools were approved by the executive board to move down to D4:
Blue Ridge, Show Low, Snowflake, Lake Havasu (head scratcher), Payson, River Valley, and Sahuarita.
Expect the following schools to move down as they finish these appeals:
Coolidge (D4), Florence (D4), Wickenberg (D4), Tatcher (D5), and St. Johns (D5).
Round Valley and Holbrock were moved down to D5.
I think this fixes many of the issues and keeps the rural schools bunched together in D4 and 5. It just makes too much sense. The big question is what happens to Yuma Catholic and NW Christian. As much as I would like to see those two teams play the white mountain schools, I would not be surprised to see them moved down as no appeal has been denied by the executive board yet.
