Poudre staying in 5A, as CHSAA proposes new conferences
Poudre High School is staying in Class 5A for football, and Fort Collins schools no longer share a conference.
That’s the biggest news after CHSAANow.com released proposed football conferences to be used for the 2016 and 2017 seasons.
Early in the school year, Poudre expected its football team to drop to 4A. With an October enrollment count of 1,844, just above the cutoff of 1,810, the Impalas will remain in 5A.
The new conferences are based on RPI of the previous two seasons.
Poudre (26 RPI) has been placed in a conference with Valor Christian (3), Fountain-Fort Carson (12), Lakewood (17), Legend (31) and Highlands Ranch (40).
