AHSAA releases new classifications for 2016-17 and 2017-18




Combined Reports
(January 20, 2016)

The Alabama High School Athletic Association has released the new classifications for the 2016-17 and 2017-18 athletic calendars.

The AHSAA Central Board of Control approved the re-classification for the upcoming 2016-17 and 2017-18 school years at its Winter Central Board meeting on Wednesday.

The majority of schools within the River Region stayed in the same classification but a few will have new regional opponents in football as well as other sports.

The newest classification, 7A, maintained the same number of regions  and schools with the same three programs – Robert E. Lee, Jeff Davis and Prattville – staying in the same region.

Both Park Crossing and G.W. Carver stayed in Class 6A and were joined by city foe Sidney Lanier. The three schools are joined by Stanhope Elmore in football region play.

But the biggest change has Wetumpka outside its normal region foes and will have the likes of Chilton County, Benjamin Russell and Opelika as region opponents.

A few schools moved down a class including Alabama Christian, which played in Class 5A the last two seasons. The Eagles moved back to 4A and will be matched against traditional rivals such as Trinity Presbyterian, Montgomery Catholic and St. James.

Tallassee also moved down a class to 4A and will face traditional rivals Holtville and Elmore County in region play.

Both Montgomery Academy and Prattville Christian Academy stayed at the Class 3A level while Billingsley moved up to Class 2A.

Marbury stayed in Class 5A.

Non-football schools LAMP (4A), Brewbaker Tech (5A) and BTW-Magnet  (4A) stayed in the same classifications.

Below are links to the new classifications for each sport in AHSAA.
