The Missouri State High School Activities Association announced district assignments for football and basketball over the weekend, with the new assignments in place for the 2014-2015 and 2015-2016 seasons. Instead of playing Midland Empire Conference foes in Class 4, District 16, as in past years, Chillicothe High School will join Trenton, Brookfield, Carrollton, Higginsville, Lawson, Lexington, and Richmond in Class 3, District 15. Lawson and Trenton move from District 16 to District 15, with Brookfield moving from District 6 to District 15. The new District 16 will be made up of Bishop LeBlond, Cameron, Cristo Rey, East Buchanan (moving up from Class 2), Lathrop, Maryville, Plattsburg, and St. Pius X (Kansas City).

In Class 2, Milan and Princeton will both be in a NORTHEAST Missouri basketball district, with the Tigers shifting from District 16 to District 6 over the next two years. Princeton will join Knox County, Marceline, Milan, Putnam County, Schuyler County, and Scotland County. Class 2, District 16 (northwest Missouri) will have a similar look to the past two years, with Mid-Buchanan moving from District 15 to replace East Buchanan. Hamilton drops from Class 3 to Class 2, landing in District 16 along with Albany, Gallatin, Maysville, North Platte, Polo, and South Harrison.

One of the biggest small-school story lines in March has been the district set-up for the Mercer girls, a program with FIVE consecutive district titles. After battling a combination of HDC rivals and northwest Missouri schools (including Jefferson) over the past two years, starting in 2015, Mercer will shift to Class 1, District 12, and will be more schools to its southeast, including Bucklin/Macon County, Green City, Grundy R-5, Linn County, Meadville, Newtown-Harris, and Novinger.

Class 1, District 10 will be made up of Glasgow, Brunswick, Hale, Higbee, Keytesville, Malta Bend, Northwestern, and Tina-Avalon. District 13 will feature Braymer, Breckenridge, Gilman City, Hardin-Central, Norborne, Southwest Livingston, Tri-County, and Wentworth. In District 14, Pattonsburg and Winston will be challenged by DeKalb, King City, Osborn, St. Joseph Christian, Stewartsville, and Union Star. In District 15, the HDC Conference's East Harrison Bobcats and North Harrison Shamrocks are matched with Jefferson, North Nodaway, Northeast Nodaway, Stanberry, West Nodaway, and Worth County. District 16 will have Fairfax, Mound City, Nodaway-Holt, North Andrew, Rock Port, South Holt, South Nodaway, and Tarkio.

While basketball saw its fair share of district shakeups, things remain fairly consistent for area high school football teams, including the Trenton Bulldogs, who remain in Class 2, District 8, with six schools as in the past two years.

Trenton will be matched with LeBlond, Brookfield, Carrollton, East Buchanan, Lathrop, Lawson, and Lexington. East Buchanan's addition to District 16 is the only change from last year, with the Bulldogs, moving up from Class 1, replacing Plattsburg, as the Tigers move down to Class 1, District 7.

The Milan Wildcats, trying to repeat as district champions, have a perennial powerhouse to deal with in Class 1, District 5, with the South Shelby Cardinals joining Milan, Knox County, North Shelby, Paris, Putnam County, Schuyler County, and Scotland County.

The Princeton Tigers and Gallatin Bulldogs will make up 25 percent of the field in Class 1, District 8, with Braymer, King City, Maysville, Hamilton, Polo, and South Harrison filling out the rest.

The Marceline Tigers, coming off a Class 1 runner-up finish in November, will be in District 6, along with Fayette, Harrisburg, Salisbury, Santa Fe, Slater, Sweet Springs, and Westran.

MEC rivals Chillicothe and Cameron will be in Class 3, District 8. The Hornets and Dragons will be matched with Kansas City East, Lincoln Prep, Maryville, Kansas City Northeast, Richmond, and St. Pius X (Kansas City).

Here are the EIGHT-MAN district assignments, as announced by MSHSAA:

District 1:
North Nodaway, Rock Port, Tarkio, West Nodaway, Worth County
District 2:
Albany, Mound City, Nodaway-Holt, South Nodaway, Stanberry
District 3:
DeKalb, North Andrew, Pattonsburg, South Hot, St. Joseph Christian, Stewartsville
District 4:
Chilhowee, Hardin-Central, Norborne, Northwest (Hughesville), Southwest Livingston
