Saturday night, Western High School found out its baseball team will move up to 4A because of its recent success. It will play in the same sectional as Kokomo, Logansport, Marion, and Lafayette’s Jefferson, McCutcheon and Harrison.
A system that sees the same teams in the championship every year leads to a drop in fan interest. The crowds start to drop off as fans find more exciting things to do with their time.
The IHSAA is trying to change that. We applaud the organization for the effort, and we wish it success.
