It was a long process last year, but the Yorktown ‘Huskers are ready to do it again.
Yorktown coach Dave Marr told me tonight that Yorktown is planning to petition to compete in Class A for the 2010 season.
After enrollment figures dropped Yorktown to Class B status after the 2008 season, Marr decided to petition to remain in Class A, where the ‘Huskers have now won three straight sectional titles since falling to John Jay in the 2006 Class A sectional final.
Though it took months, that request was finally approved.
Now, the ‘Huskers are ready to do the same for next season.
There had been some speculation as to the status of Rye for next season, with some speculation the Garnets would be moving up to Class B.
As you can see from the enrollment figures below, that is not the case, and Rye will remain in Class C, where it has won four sectional titles in five years.
