Patriots reclassified to 3A

JCHS football is largest team in 3A


The Patriots will have a different path in the postseason next year.

The IHSAA announced the division alignments for the 2024-25 and 2025-26 seasons for the sports of football, boys and girls soccer, boys and girls basketball and volleyball on Tuesday morning. The Jay County High School football team will shift down into Class 3A for the next two seasons.

The Patriots will make the move from Class 4A to Class 3A, while sectional rivals Mississinewa and Western join them. Kokomo was reclassified to Class 5A, while the other teams from Sectional 20 remained in Class 4A.

JCHS is tied with Guerin Catholic for the highest enrollment in Class 3A at 800 students.

Despite the four-class sports (baseball, basketball, softball and volleyball) being distributed differently, Jay County will remain in the same levels as previous years. The Patriots will also stay in Class 2A for both boys and girls soccer.
