The four Warren sports teams include baseball from Class 4A to Class 5A (the PIAA paperwork orginally said it was boys’ basketball but the YDL Sports Network has been told there was an error in the paperwork and it should have said baseball), girls’ basketball from Class 5A to Class 6A, boys;’ tennis from Class 2A to Class 3A, and girls’ tennis from Class 2A to Class 3A.

Brockway and St. Marys are the only other District 9/10 schools with multiple teams moving up in classification.

The PIAA released its classifications for sports teams last week with the caveat that teams could elect to move up in classification while others may be forced up in classification because of the PIAA Success Formula which takes into account success at the state level plus transfers. Teams forced to move up will be notified on a rotating basis throughout the school year when their competition seasons are finished.
