While Higbee’s move to join the CLAA was one of the highlights in its latest board of education meeting, the board also approved a move that will impact their junior high athletics. Superintendent Danielle Tuepker says Higbee will be unaffiliating from MSHSAA’s junior high regulations to allow sixth grade students to participate in junior high sports.

Higbee’s junior high sports have all the same activities as their high school except for baseball and softball.
