IHSAA Announces New School Classifications for 2015‐16, 2016‐17

The Indiana High School Athletic Association, in a March 31st Press Release, announced the new classifications for member schools in several sports for the next two school years.  The enrollment figures, the total of boys and girls in grades 9‐12, were submitted by the schools to the Indiana Department of Education last fall and are used to determine the classifications in the sports of baseball, boys and girls basketball, football, boys and girls soccer, softball and volleyball.  These class changes will be effective for next school year (2015-16) and the following school year (2016-17).

No changes in class alignment were announced for any Mid-Southern Conference, as Silver Creek will remain 4A, Charlestown, Corydon, North Harrison, Scottsburg, Brownstown and Salem remain 3A, and Clarksville, Austin, and Eastern(Pekin) remain 2A.

A couple Pirate and Lady Pirate Sectional foes will change in a few sports, as Mitchell will drop from 3A to 2A in Baseball, Basketball, Softball and Football.  The Mitchell Bluejackets have been a Football Sectional 31 opponent of the Pirates for the past four years; creating an opening for realignment.  Due to their post season tournament success factor, Providence will move from 2A to 3A and likely join the same Sectional the Lady Pirates play.

According to school enrollment figures, the press release also indicated that Charlestown’s enrollment increased to 735, making it the 16th largest 3A school in the state; and the largest 3A school in the Mid-Southern Conference.  The remaining MSC 3A enrollments numbers include Corydon-717 (21st); North Harrison-660 (33rd); Brownstown-571 (56th); and Salem-558 (58th).

Pirates’ 1990 Sectional Champs Celebrate 25 Year Mark

1990BBBSectionalChampsIn 1990, Coach Allan Cundiff created one of the most phenomenal Pirates’ teams that have withstood time in the annals of hoops legacy at Charlestown High School.  And, on Saturday, February 28, 2015, at the CHS Sports Arena, these extraordinary Pirates along with Coach Cundiff will be honored prior to the Mid-Southern Conference encounter between the host Pirates and the Salem Lions on their Silver Jubilee of winning the IHSAA Floyd Central Sectional tournament.

          The 1990 Pirates were led by outstanding players, Buster Bussey, Brad Crace, Jamie Denney, Scott Fellows, Will Fugate, Chad Gilbert, Tony Jarvoka, Marlon Jemerson, Ross Knecht, Kyle Lovan, Todd Satterly, John Smith and Hank Weedin. They ended their basketball campaign 21-3, with the most victories by any Charlestown squad. They were Silver Creek Holiday Champs, undefeated Mid-Southern Conference champions, Floyd Central sectional champions, and Seymour regional semi-finalists.

The 1990 Pirates’ impressive average span of wins was 22.3 points per game. The final coaches poll had them ranked 18th in the state, and in the final Associated Press Indiana High School Basketball Poll, the Pirates ranked 8th in the Hoosier State.

            The Charlestown High School Pirates boys’ basketball program will celebrate 100 years of hoops action in 2017, and the return of these exceptional athletes to their alma mater presents only the third in a series of special Pirate tributes to other extraordinary coaches, players and teams, and their incredible moments on the hardwood.  After the game, come and enjoy the memories with these powerhouse players and Coach Cundiff in the Hospitality Room at the CHS Sports Arena. Light refreshments will be served.
