Class 4A – 1

  • Bethany*
  • Cache
  • Chickasha
  • Clinton
  • Elgin
  • Elk City
  • Newcastle
  • Weatherford
*With Ada coming west into district 2, we felt to balance the powers we would need to send a team further west into district 1. We chose Bethany, being one of the farthest western schools in that district to would be a good fit geographically and competitively.

Class 4A – 2

  • Ada
  • Blanchard
  • Classen**
  • Cushing
  • Harrah
  • John Marshall**
  • Tecumseh
  • Tuttle
**John Marshall and Classen would replace Bethany in district 2.

Class 4A – 3

  • Bristow
  • Catoosa
  • Cleveland
  • Grove
  • Miami
  • Oologah
  • Skiatook***

Class 4A – 4

  • Broken Bow
  • Ft. Gibson
  • Hilldale
  • McLain****
  • Muldrow
  • Poteau
  • Sallisaw
  • Stillwell
****We lose Central from 4A-4 so it made sense to send a school from district 3 to district 4. We could have sent Ada to district 4 but felt the total mileage they would have logged is significantly higher than sending a district 3 school farther south. McLain was our choice to send to district 4 to stay balanced.

*This was original rationale from committee on their first proposal. It has since been tweaked by the OFBCA executive board. Due to the many class A and 3A teams coming into class 2A, redistricting based off of past districts became very difficult. Because of the A and 3A factor, it also became a challenge to determine the strength of a district. The NW and SW became the only two areas that were able to keep a resemblance of their previous districts. We also took into consideration what other districts and areas a school historically played in.

Northwest: The travel in this area of the state has always been a concern, so in order to fill an eight team district we had to bring two teams from the metro area. OCS and Luther have previously been in the northwest district, and this also allowed us to keep intact a previous district.

City/Metro Area: The city area always contains many options for district realignment. This year was no different, but the factors in the surrounding metro area districts led us to the decision to create District 2. In order to have 16 teams available for the SW and Southern districts; we felt it was necessary to bring Kellyville from the SW Tulsa area to the Eastern City district.

South Metro and SW/Southern Region: This was an area that became very difficult to divide due to travel, three previous 3A teams, and two previous Class A teams. Southeast: This was also an area where travel became a concern. We felt that our best option was to add Idabel to this district and keep Eufaula with District 6 for a balance of power.

Eastern and Tulsa Area: This is an area where travel to district 5 and balance of power within the Tulsa area became huge factors in determining each of the three remaining districts. In the previous realignment Holland Hall traveled to district 5 from the Tulsa area, so with that in mind we decided to move Cascia Hall and Rejoice Christian into district 5.

OFBCA Executive Board’s Suggestions:
  • 2A-1 & 2A-2 stayed the same
  • With districts 3 and 4, Frederick and Holdenville were switched b/c of a better fit geographically and switched Lindsay and Purcell because of the same reasons. Still felt balance of power was reasonable.
  • In 2A-5 we took Rejoice out and replaced with Keys for geographical purposes.
  • 2A-6 stayed the same
  • In districts 7 and 8 we switched Sperry and Metro because of a better fit geographically.
  • 2A-8 loses Keys and replaced with Rejoice Christian

*This was the original rationale from the first proposal by committee. They have tweaked their plan since.

Please consider the following factors as you go through this plan. If you have any questions please contact me, I feel like we had a good meeting and a good process and will be able to answer any questions or help with minor adjustments that you see as necessary after a discussion.
Committee Members:
  • Chris Elerick, Stroud
  • Lynn Shackleford, Cashion
  • Brandon Tyler, Gore
  • Joe Turner, Okemah
  • Bob Ward, Thomas Grey Powell, O.C.A.
Others in the room with input who approved of this plan:
  • Colt Allison – Hobart, Sam Powers – Mangum,
  • Cory Bales – Morrison, Matt Hennessy – Pawhuska.
  • Also got input from Brandon Sharpe at Wayne, Russell Cook of Pawnee.
North and North-East part of the state: This part of the state has been an issue for Class A for the past few re-district cycles, not because of geography – but because of balance of power. The north central (A-5) District has been very tough, with 5-6 caliber playoff teams year in year out, as well as teams who compete for or win State Championships. The north east has not been as competitive (with the exception of Afton – who has dropped off considerably). We felt if we could pull a few of the A-5 teams east and rotate the map it would balance both districts. At the scheduling meeting they can make it where they only have 1 road trip a year. Once to Hominy, once to Pawhuska. (also, both of those schools: Hominy and Pawhuska who will drive more often are on board with this plan)

Location of the 7-team districts is important. We tried to keep them side-by-side as much as possible for non-district bye-week matchups. By doing so it pulled Burns-Flat to the panhandle. Burn-Flat could easily be pulled back into A-2 and make it 8 teams, but the it separates the 7-team districts by a lot.

Mileage issues and the district that includes Texhoma and Hooker: This is the part that get the most people, but at the end of the day – somebody (actually 5-6 somebodies) have to be in that district. In our opinion you can’t simple cherry pick the closest schools because that has a negative effect on the rest of the state.

The choices are go to the South-West part of the state or the North-Central part of the state. Following is a list of reason why we did what we did along with some empirical data – mileage to support.

MILES TO TEXHOMA VS. MILES TO HOOKER
  • Mooreland: 156 vs. 133
  • Sayre: 181 vs. 173
  • Merritt: 187 vs. 179
  • Burns-Flat: 213 vs. 204
  • Mangum: 214 vs. 206
  • Hollis: 211 vs. 203
  • Total: 1,162 (Texhoma) vs. 1,098 (Hooker)
For comparison – if you went North-Central with it, the mileage would look like this:
MILES TO TEXHOMA VS. MILES TO HOOKER
  • Mooreland 156 133
  • Fairview 204 182
  • Thomas 215 194
  • Watonga 218 195
  • Cashion 263 240
  • Crescent 271 248
  • Total: 1,327 (Texhoma) vs. 1,192 (Hooker)
In one final comparison, if you did just simply take the schools that look closest to the panhandle, the mileage would look like this:
MILES TO TEXHOMA VS. MILES TO HOOKER
  • Mooreland 156 133
  • Fairview 204 182
  • Thomas 215 194
  • Watonga 218 195
  • Sayre 181 173
  • Merritt 187 179
  • Total: 1,161 (Texhoma) vs. 1,056 (Hooker)
If you do this, the mileage is really splitting hairs. However, it changes the map drastically in the central part of the state and creates more travel there. Additionally, I talked with Trevor Powers at Hooker, and he said they would much rather go to SW Oklahoma for their district. Easier travel. He was very much in favor of our plan and said Texhoma was as well.

Adjustments by District after tweaking OSSAA suggested plan:
A-1
  • Switched OBA and Thomas because of the travel distance for the 3 schools on I-40 that would have had to go to Enid. This was also a massive difference in travel for OBA.
A-2
  • Added Walters to create an 8 team district. This allowed us to create another 8 team district in the south central (A-4)
A-3
  • Switched OBA and Thomas. Moved Morrison east to A-6 to create both 7-team districts side by side. This also balanced strength in both districts.
A-4
  • Moved Walters west and brought in Stratford and Wayne to create a nice small 8 team district.
A-5
  • No change
A-6
  • Moved Liberty and Mounds out to go south. Brought Morrison in to create the 7-team mentioned above.
A-7
  • Sent Stratford and Wayne to A-4, brought Mounds and Liberty in.
A-8
  • No change
Total schools moved: (8) OBA, Thomas, Morrison, Walters, Stratford, Wayne, Mounds, Liberty.
