FOOTBALL: Warriors would play in Class 6A in 2012


Brainerd High School would play in the new Class 6A that was approved Thursday by the Minnesota State High School League Board of Directors for football, beginning with the 2012 season.

According to enrollment figures issued by the board, Brainerd is the state’s 30th largest school.

Class 6A will include the state’s largest 32 schools (others may choose to opt up to 6A).

The approval means there will be seven classes of Minnesota football in 2012.
