Four schools will change classifications in football and two others have filed opt-up petitions with the Wyoming High School Activities Association to remain in their current class for the 2024-25 seasons.

Based on projected enrollments for the next two school years, Wyoming’s high school football conference and classification alignment will shift some schools into new classifications.

WHSAA Commissioner Trevor Wilson said this week via email that schools changing classifications include Torrington (from 2A to 3A), Worland (from 3A to 2A), Moorcroft (from 1A nine-man to 2A) and Riverside (from 1A nine-man to 1A six-man).

Conference alignments for 2024 and 2025, as provided by Wilson, are scheduled to be:

Class 4A (10 teams): Campbell County, Cheyenne Central, Cheyenne East, Cheyenne South, Kelly Walsh, Laramie, Natrona, Rock Springs, Sheridan, Thunder Basin.

Class 3A East (6): Buffalo, Douglas, Lander, Rawlins, Riverton, Torrington.
Class 3A West (6): Cody, Evanston, Green River, Jackson, Powell, Star Valley.

Class 2A East (8): Big Horn, Burns, Glenrock, Moorcroft, Newcastle, Tongue River, Upton-Sundance, Wheatland.
Class 2A West (8): Cokeville, Kemmerer, Lovell, Lyman, Mountain View, Pinedale, Thermopolis, Worland.

Class 1A nine-man East (7): Guernsey, Lingle, Lusk, Pine Bluffs, Saratoga, Southeast, Wright.
Class 1A nine-man West (6): Big Piney, Greybull, Rocky Mountain, Shoshoni, Wind River, Wyoming Indian.

Class 1A six-man North (7): Burlington, Hulett, Kaycee, Meeteetse, Midwest, Riverside, Ten Sleep.
Class 1A six-man South (6): Casper Christian, Dubois, Encampment, Farson, Hanna, Snake River.

St. Stephens will play a JV schedule at either the six-man or nine-man levels, Wilson said.

Schools opting up include Cokeville (from 1A six-man to 2A) and Guernsey (from 1A six-man to 1A nine-man). No schools have chosen to opt down, meaning all programs are playoff-eligible.

In other sports — which use a different classification system that uses four classes instead of five — Wilson said no schools have filed with the WHSAA to opt up or opt down.

Four WHSAA district meetings are scheduled for the next two weeks. The next WHSAA board of directors meeting is Oct. 31 and Nov. 1 in Casper.
