Boalsburg Mat Club to AAA Next Year?

Heard a rumor at SW Regional that St Joe's going to be AAA Next year, along with Notre Dame GP?

Any truth to this that will actually have some integrity by moving up?

Re: Boalsburg Mat Club to AAA Next Year?

Highly doubt it. Very hard to have a triple a school with 100-150 kids. Also all sports would have to be AAA not just wrestling, and I’m not so sure that the other athletic teams at st joes would survive AAA, it is very hard to even have a full team with such a small school, compared to the AAA schools with 500-2,000 kids.

Re: Boalsburg Mat Club to AAA Next Year?

They can move to AAA if they wish and must stay there for 2 yrs. Not all sports have to go up.

A few years back Bellwood was single A in softball and elected to move up to play AAA for two yrs and come back to A and it did not effect any other sports.

Take a look @ PO and BEA. Both dropped to AA wrestling 2019 & 2020 seasons. Did it effect there other sports programs, no it did not.

Re: Boalsburg Mat Club to AAA Next Year?

Correct, the school's sport can do as they please as long as it is for two seasons. I do not know how this move would benefit The Boalsburg Mat Club. It would definitely hurt the teams in the NWAAA region. With the studs that St. Joes is returning and have coming up from their Junior High team (lol, have coming in for their next recruitment class), things would get much tougher. With only the top 3 reaching Hershey, then adding in the private schools of Erie Cathedral Prep and St. Joe's, the task would be that much tougher.

Not sure if this can be done for next year? That would be in the middle of the 2 year PIAA classification cycle.

Re: Boalsburg Mat Club to AAA Next Year?

Haven’t heard anything about AAA. Doubt it since they are so small. I’ve heard from multiple sources though that the Boalsburg Pike Mat Club might be co-opping with State College next year. Which would make them AAA

Re: Boalsburg Mat Club to AAA Next Year?

Sorry, I put that wrong. State college is only one of the options, along with a few others. They would be able to co-op with any school in center county. So that would be state college, bellefonte, bald eagle, philipsburg, or Pennsvalley. Do you guys think this would be better or worse for the district?

Re: Boalsburg Mat Club to AAA Next Year?

Proceed with caution on this one. If they co-op BF, BEA, PO, or PV total enrollment would change, meaning those schools might have to go to a higher classification depending on the their numbers.

Re: Boalsburg Mat Club to AAA Next Year?

If any co-op were to happen and that is doubtful, it would absolutely be with State College. Nobody else. No other option.

Re: Boalsburg Mat Club to AAA Next Year?

they have 4 other options besides SC. just saying...
