The IHSAA Executive Committee on Saturday approved Central Catholic’s assignment to Class 2A, Sectional 34 in baseball.
That sectional also includes Hoosier Conference rivals Delphi and Rensselaer as well as North Judson, North Newton and Winamac.
Central Catholic was originally placed in a Class A sectional in the latest realignment. But by virtue of winning a regional this season, the Knights accumulated enough points via the IHSAA’s tournament success factor to warrant being bumped up one class.
Central Catholic went on to win its fifth straight Class A baseball state championship. The four-time defending Class A champion football program will also compete in Class 2A for the next two school years.
