GHSA extends reclassification cycle

By Joey Donia - bio | email


One of the toughest jobs for the Georgia High School Association is determining which schools should be play in which classification and region.

It is a difficult process that usually takes one year to complete.

What made it even harder was the GHSA reclassified schools every two years.

Not any longer.

Monday the GHSA approved a plan to reclassify schools every four years.

Many schools in Georgia say the quick region changes made it hard to create local rivalries.

Lee County is in region one quad-a that includes schools in south georgia, macon area and columbus area.

Athletic director Rob Williams believes the longer reclassification cycle will help.

"For rivalries when your getting to play people for three or four years in a row. The four year reclassification may be better for us" said Williams.

The association will still have the ability to move a schools classification in the middle of the four-year cycle if a school has a 20 percent change in enrollment.
