Sectional alignments shake up county teams

New sectional assignments were released and approved by the IHSAA Executive Committee earlier this week for the 2013-14 and 2014-15 school years.

Boys’ and girls’ basketball and soccer, volleyball, softball, baseball and football were all affected.

The 2013-14 school year will be the first of six classes in football with all of the county teams majorly affected.

None of the six county football head coaches were surprised at the new alignments but all were intrigued about the possible matchups.

Avon and Brownsburg make up half of Class 6A’s Sectional 5. Along with Ben Davis and Pike, Sectional 5 is one of the best, if not the toughest, sectional from top to bottom in all of the classes.

“We’re going to play two mega schools and our rival,” Brownsburg coach Brett Comer said. “I don’t know that anybody else in the state can say that other than Avon.” Sectional 4 features Carmel, Fishers, Hamilton Southeastern and Noblesville as one of the other top sectional groupings. While Sectional 4 features two of the last four Class 5A state champions (Carmel in 2011 and Fishers in ‘10), Sectional 5’s quartet have won more games, loss less games and has a better winning percentage than Sectional 4’s grouping the past two seasons. Sectional 5 has gone a combined 67-25 for a 73 percent winning percentage and Sectional 4 has gone a combined 65-30 for a 68 percent winning percentage during that two-year span.

“Obviously it’s got to be one of the more difficult 6A sectionals and that’s no disrespect to anybody else,” Comer said. “But those are four teams that have had very, very good years in a very short history of just the past couple of years.”

Familiarity continues for the Bulldogs and Orioles as the four teams all shared a sectional previously. Avon has played the other teams a combined eight times the past three seasons and Brownsburg has played the other teams a combined five times the past three seasons.
