The Missouri State High School Activities Association released the district assignments Friday for boys and girls basketball and boys wrestling for the 2019-20 season.
Jefferson City will move into Class 5 District 9 for the basketball season. The Jays and Lady Jays will be joined in the district by Battle, Hickman, Rock Bridge and Sedalia Smith-Cotton.
Helias will shift into District 10 in Class 4 for basketball, but the Crusaders and Lady Crusaders will be rejoined by some familiar schools, just in a different district number. Boonville, Marshall and School of the Osage remain in their district. Camdenton is a newcomer.
Another newcomer to Class 4 District 10 is Capital City, which will begin its first season this winter. The Cavaliers and Lady Cavaliers will have just freshmen and sophomores this season.
Blair Oaks will remain in Class 3 District 9 this basketball season, along with California, Father Tolton, Fatima, South Callaway and Southern Boone. New to the district this year are Eldon and Versailles.
Calvary Lutheran, much like Helias, has a new district number but a handful of familiar district opponents. In Class 2 District 8, the Lions and Lady Lions will be rejoined by Harrisburg, New Bloomfield and Russellville.
Eugene is a holdover from last year's District 8. New to the district are Belle, Linn and New Haven.
In boys wrestling, Jefferson City will be in Class 4 District 3, while Helias is in Class 3 District 3 and Capital City in Class 3 District 4. Blair Oaks moves up to Class 2 this season and will join District 2.
Girls wrestling district assignments have not yet been announced.
Host sites of district tournaments will be determined on a future date.
