Kofa moving up to 6A

Kofa athletics are moving up to 6A the highest classification in the AIA.

YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - The AIA is moving Kofa athletics, with the exception of football, up to 6A for the upcoming school year. The classes are determined by enrollment with 6A being the top for the most enrollment.

Kofa has previously spent the past few years in 5A, but this is not totally new territory for the Kings.

"We're looking forward to the challenge," Kofa head basketball coach Jeff Frazine said. "We've been in 6A before. There is going to be a level of comfort there for the older players, having been been there before and playing against teams at that level."

6A contains the biggest schools and typically the most talented teams in the state, so it is a big step up for Kofa.

"Playing the 6A schools, we're going to run into some taller teams and, we're going to be a little bit undersized this year," Frazine said. "So, we're going to have to battle that and get creative defensively. on how to how to protect the post a little bit and guard the paint. That's going to be our main focal point between now and when the season starts."

The first Kofa sport to compete in 6A this fall will be girls volleyball. The Kings football program will remain in 3A due to team results over the years.
