Dusty Deines
Dusty grew up on a farm south of WaKeeney, KS and in 7th grade decided he wanted to do sports play-by-play on the radio. After graduating from Trego Community High School in 2001, he obtained a Radio Broadcasting degree from Colby Community College in 2003. He began working as Sports Director at KD Country 94 & Z 96.3 in July of 2003 and has been in the position ever since. Deines was the 2016-17 KSHSAA Oscar Stauffer Sportscaster of the Year and has won numerous awards from the Kansas Association of Broadcasters. When he's not traveling the state covering the area sports teams, he enjoys spending time with his family, attending college and professional sporting events and helping advocate for those with muscle disease, including Dermatomyositis, of which Dusty is a survivor.

TOPEKA, Kan. – Ballots from KSHSAA member schools on the proposal to modify Class 1A postseason competition in volleyball, basketball and scholars bowl were due November 15th.  Based on the response from the membership, the proposal received more than the 59 votes needed from 117 schools voting.  KSHSAA Bylaw Article XII, Section 4 requires a majority vote to approve changes to classifications.  As a result, the proposal has passed.

Voting Results were as follows:

Class 1A

Yes = 70            No = 47

Proposal passes for the 2020-21 school year Class 1A postseason competition for volleyball, basketball and scholars bowl.

 Please note:  With this change in classification, the postseason format and calendar will change.  The Executive Board will approve the competition schedule/format at the January 15-16, 2020 meeting.  It is premature to believe the schedule/format will return to the exact same schedule/format followed when Class 1A previously  crowned two division champions

In 2009 class 1A voted to split into two divisions. In 2017 during the reclassification proposal, 1A was voted to be put back together for one class.
