For the second time in three years, Fruitport will make the jump to Class A.
The Trojans’ enrollment this year is listed at 895 students. The cutoff for Class A is 882 and above, while Class B features schools with enrollments from 424-881.
Grand Haven, at 1,960, remains firmly entrenched in Class A. The Buccaneers rank 28th in the state in enrollment, with Macob Dakota at 2,814 leading the pack.
East Kentwood (2,595), Rockford (2,555) and West Ottawa (2,293) are all larger that Grand Haven.
Spring Lake sits at 802 students, well below the cutoff to remain in Class B.
Most high school sports now use a division-based system to determine state playoffs. That system takes the total number of schools offering each sport and divide that number by four, creating four equal-size divisions.
However, basketball and volleyball continue to use the class system to determine state tournament placement.
Fruitport also jumped up to Class A for the 2012-13 school year before returning to Class B this past year.
