In most sports and classifications in Alaska, it’s hard to duplicate many of the state experiences in the Lower 48, where over a hundred schools compete for the state title.
That’s not the case in Class 1A basketball.
In the reclassification that goes into effect this season, the Alaska Schools Activities Association counts 133 schools in Class 1A, although they all won’t field teams and that includes ESSS Schools which will combine to form teams. Class 1A schools have less than 60 students.
There are 21 schools in Class 2A, 21 in Class 3A and 20 in Class 4A.
