Taos is out of District 2-4A and Santa Fe is in under new proposal

-A A +A
By Mike Cote

Many coaches around the state, including more than a few from Los Alamos High School, have bemoaned teams from small districts which sometimes seem to qualify for postseason events by default.

Guess who might now be in one of those loathsome districts?

In the newly revised New Mexico Activities Association’s Alignment and Classification Proposal, District 2AAAA, which Los Alamos competes in, could be down to just four teams for the four-year block of 2010-2014.

The NMAA, the governing body of most interscholastic activities in the state, including most major sports, revealed its revised proposal Jan. 27. The original proposal was released by the organization in early December.

According to the NMAA, the plan was revised based on factors such as feedback from member schools, differences in school enrollment — the 40-day official enrollment was used for the initial proposal, the 80-day enrollment for the revision — and geographical concerns.

Under the new proposal, Los Alamos would only be joined in the district by Española Valley, Capital and Santa Fe. Santa Fe, which plays in Class 5A has had declining enrollment in recent years, is already beneath the Class 4A ceiling with its 80-day enrollment this year.
