Woodlands basketball beat Ardsley 38-37 at Woodlands Jan. 19, 2016.

The 2016-17 Basic Educational Data System numbers — which determine the enrollment of each school and sort teams into their respective sports classes — were announced Monday alongside the classification numbers for the school year, providing a look at what to expect next season.

There aren’t too many drastic changes to the girls basketball scene, unlike volleyball, but there are a few. In total, four teams will be changing classes next year.
