The 2022-23 season is officially upon us. The shakeup of reclassification has strengthened some classes while watering down others. For the first time since 2012 public schools and private schools are mixed together in the 1A classifications. It will be interesting to see how public schools fare this time around as from 2001-2012, the two split winning six titles apiece. Also new in 2022 is the long-awaited completed integration of the 35-second shot clock. Will it make a drastic difference? Will there be growing pains? We will find out soon enough. And lastly, don’t let anyone tell you there is a recession. With 175 reported transfers and more movement surely to take place even after the season starts, there must be plenty of affordable housing and a robust job market available in certain parts of the state.
