The Michigan High School Athletic Association announced its 2016-17 classifications for girls and boys basketball and volleyball Tuesday, with four area teams moving up or down based on enrollment.

Haslett will move down to Class B after competing in Class A this season despite the fact that its enrollment of 875 did not change. The MHSAA set the cutoff for Class A at 881 and above this season, up from 875 a year ago. The Vikings girls basketball team lost a Class A district opener to East Lansing in February.

Lansing Eastern is also dropping from Class A to Class B for the first time in recent memory, as its enrollment dropped from 956 to 856. These numbers differ from school aid count enrollment numbers because they do not include students who turned 19 before September 1.

Ithaca moves up from Class C to Class B after its boys team reached the state quarterfinals this month and the girls team made it to the state semifinals for the first time in school history. The Yellowjackets’ MHSAA enrollment number is 426, while the maximum enrollment for Class C is now 411.

Potterville is also taking a step up, from Class D to Class C.

Here’s a look at all the classification changes for 2016-17.

Enrollment classification: 

Class A: 881 and above

Class B: 412-880
