GHSA Approves Reclassification
HS Sports

The Georgia High School Association committee unamamously approved a 6 classification change this morning in Thomaston, to become effective fall of 2012 through 2014. The divide is based on the student population of individual schools and will determine the competitve schedule for athletics, academics and extracurricular activities.

The move is the first for the state to have 6 classifications, since adapting to 5 in 2000. Several central Georgia athletic directors were in attendance of the meeting and are in support with the switch, including Southwest Macon's Carror Wright, Mary Person's Rodney Walker and Bleckley County's athletic director Sam Barrs, who is also a GHSA committee member.

According to GHSA president Dr. Ralph Swearingen, schools have 2 weeks to sign off on the classification or decide if they want to play up a class.

The board will meet again December 9th to begin assigning schools to different regions.
