The competition committee placed 4 teams this season. UPrep, Bishop Kearney and Aquinas will all compete in Class AA while Northstar Christian was placed in Class C1, the same class they captured the Sectional title in last season defeating Gananda in the championship game.
The appeal by Monroe County’s public schools was turned down, and Aquinas and UPrep will play in Class AA in Section 5 boys basketball this season.
