PASCO, Wash. -- Pasco and Eastmont are moving up to the 4A. Next year they will make the change. The WIAA (Washington Interscholastic Activities Association) is making the change for the schools based on new enrollment numbers. Every two years, the schools submit their enrollment.

To become a 4A school the WIAA says you need an enrollment of over 1,300. Pasco's enrollment this year was nearly 1,500. Pasco was a 4A school before Chiawana opened three years ago. Pasco Assistant Superintendent John Morgan is excited about the move.

"It's a move you have no control over. It's all based on enrollment, and we knew our enrollment would be over this year at Pasco High School. We're playing those traditional rivals we always have in Kennewick, Richland and Walla Walla. It will be exciting for our fans and exciting for our teams to be able to get back and play some of those traditional rivals," Morgan said.
