Putnam City Schools athletic director Dick Balenseifen is scheduled to make a presentation to the Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association suggesting the need to split Class 6A in all sports.
Balenseifen will appear before the OSSAA board of directors at their regular meeting Wednesday, according to the meeting agenda.
The proposal comes in the aftermath of the Class 6A schools voting to split the class into two 16-team divisions, each with their own state champion, for football only. That decision will take effect next fall.
The new proposal is based on the imbalance of championships won by the schools ranking in the top 16 of average daily attendance — approximately 87 percent of all championships over the last 16 years, according to Balenseifen — as compared to those in the bottom 16 of the class.
