Girl’s high school soccer will feature two classes next year. Ninety-one schools open regional play this week to compete for what will be the last single class state champion. Next year they’ll go to a 2A-1A format.Troy Dannen of the Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union says with the number of schools offering soccer on the rise, it’s a good time to offer two classes of competition. Dannen says they’ve had some very competitive 1A schools that haven’t been able to push through into the tournament. He says the change in classification will give schools with fewer athletes more of a chance.Dannen says about a half-dozen schools are adding the sport next season and more schools are on the way. He says it’s spreading from the suburbs to some of the larger rural communities in Iowa.The state tournament is June 22nd and 23rd in Muscatine.
