Over the last few years, the Indiana High School Athletic Association (or IHSAA) has gone to a two-year plan in which it looks at enrollments (both current and future), success factor, the inclusion of new schools following their probationary period, and the exclusion of schools who either close their doors or choose to leave the IHSAA, and they come up with the new Sectional realignments in every team sport.  Last week, the IHSAA released its updated list of Sectionals for girls' basketball that will take affect during the 2019-2020 and the 2020-2021 seasons.  I took a look at those Sectional alignments, and below are some notes I made.  Some are minor items, while others could affect the outcomes of state tournaments.



Sectional #1:  Gary West Side moves back to Class 4A after a brief two-year stint in Class 3A.  This affects them because they won the Sectional each year they were in Class 3A, but they also won Sectional #1 the two years prior to heading to Class 3A (2015-2016 & 2016-2017).  They should still be considered a contender here, especially with a player the caliber of high-scoring guard Dash Shaw (2020).

Sectional #3:  Plymouth,
