The initial region placements issued by the AIA Conference Committees were released on Monday and the deadline for schools to appeal is Nov. 1 at 2 p.m. The initial placements for football will be posted on Dec. 15. Again, these placements do not include football. Football is decided after the playoffs are over.

NOTE: Ironwood Ridge appealed to be moved back up to 5A from 4A, Willcox went from 1A to 2A and Baboquivari went from 2A to 1A.

Notice 6A is populated with more teams. Andrada Polytechnic is in the Vail School District and Lourdes Catholic is in Nogales and Bowie students compete with Willcox.
