The Western Athletic Conference will also see one of its members drop to Class 4A.

The Hays Indians will fall to Class 4A with a student population of 548. Liberal ahs a student population in the freshman, sophomore and junior classes of 964. Liberal was 51 students away from Class 6A which began at 1015 students.
