I don't think these enrollment numbers represent "Class B". Some of these schools have more kids in one class then most class b schools have in their entire high school. Just my two cents.
I do find it interesting that the school with the smallest enrollment is the one that has been #1 in the rankings most of the year and is one of two undefeated teams going into the state tournament. I know a lot of people don't want to hear this, but these numbers COULD (and I stress could) be an argument for a 3 class system. Appreciate the numbers, but some people don't realize that difference 5-10 per class could mean for a building a team and a program. In some of the smaller class B schools, if half of those students are male, that's another 2-5 guys to choose from to play bball and, who knows, maybe 1 every couple years could be a very solid player. That small difference can mean a lot to a team!
