LAHS Athletics: Santa Fe in, Taos out of 2AAAA after next year

-A A +A
By Mike Cote

There could be some interesting landscapes on the horizon for the 2010-11 sports year barring unforeseen roadblocks around the state of New Mexico.

The New Mexico Activities Association, the governing body of most interscholastic high school-level sports in the state, is set to implement a new alignment and classification system, which is set to go into effect the school year after next.

Some major changes include a brand new classification for the sport of basketball and plenty of schools moving up and down the classification ranks, with several accompanying district alignment shifts.

Those districts that will be getting a facelift include District 2AAAA, in which Los Alamos High School currently resides and will continue to reside through the spring of 2014.

The same can’t be said, however, for Taos High School, which will move down to Class AAA for most sports starting in 2010-11.

To fill the void left by Taos, Santa Fe High School will round out the five-team district starting that season. Santa Fe was in the biggest school classification in the state, AAAAA, since the NMAA went to five classifications in 2000.
