You might try a formula like:
=IF(A1="","",LOOKUP(A1, DATE({0,1997,1999,2001,2003},9,1),{"HS","U15","U13","U11","U9"}))

It wasn't clear what the criteria for HS should be from the question. I assumed that it was before 9/1/1997, and that you wrote < 9/1/1999 in error.

You could also use a VLOOKUP formula using a table in cells N1:O6 like:
Date          Category
0                  HS
9/1/1997      U15
9/1/1999      U13
9/1/2001      U11
9/1/2003      U9

The VLOOKUP formula would be:
=IF(A1="","",VLOOKUP(A1,N$2:O$6,2))

Both methods are shown in the attached file
