FOOTBALL: Warriors will be in Section 5 under realignment for 7 classes
Brainerd will compete in Section 5 when Minnesota high school football expands to seven classes in 2012.
The Minnesota State High School League Board of Directors approved opt-ups and opt-downs for the 2012 season when a seventh competitive football class for the largest 32 schools will be added.
Other schools in Section 6-6A will be Blaine, Centennial, Champlin Park, Coon Rapids, Maple Grove, Anoka and Osseo.
Also on Monday, the Board approved a football rule change, requiring four players to be positioned on each side of the kicker when an onside kick is attempted, and that no contact can take place until the ball has traveled 10 yards.
