The North Dakota High School Activities Association announced the new football regions for the 2019 and 2020 school years.
Some of the most notable changes are Hazen and Beulah moving up from Class A to Class AA.
New Salem-Almont-Glen Ullin, Richardton-Taylor-Hebron and Shiloh Christian move from 9-Man to Class A. Shiloh Christian Athletic Director Brandon Lemer spoke about why the Skyhawks are excited about this transition.
“We’ve know for a while that it was coming,” Lemer said. “We just didn’t know what region we were going to end up in. So it’s very exciting on that part. We’re actually going to up non-conference against Oak Grove next year.”
Like the current classifications, all schools will be reevaluated after two years and could shift again based on enrollment numbers.
