The Butte Civic Center will play host to the 2015 Class AA combined boys’ and girls’ State basketball tournament.
The tournament will be March 12-14.
The Montana High School Association Executive Board announced the tournament sites for the next two school years this afternoon. The Civic Center will also host the 2016 Class B combined boys’ and girls’ state tournament.
The Butte arena hosted the Class C State boys’ tournament last month.
Also, the MHSA officially announced that three schools will change classification for the 2015-16 school year. Anaconda and Libby will move from Class A to Class B. Plentywood will move from Class B to Class C.
Eight other schools were also identified for reclassification, the MHSA said. All petitioned and were approved to stay in their current classification.
Butte Central, which has an enrollment well below Class A, successfully petitioned to remain in the Class A.
