GHSA releases region alignments for 2020-2022
GHSA football

Last week, the GHSA released its reclassification alignments for the 2020-2022 cycle and it possibly meant big things for the area schools. On Tuesday, November 12, the state released its proposed region alignments for the 2020 season and for the next two years and one school will be affected greatly.

The Bradwell Institute Tigers will remain in classification 6A and in region 2, but will welcome in a few new schools. Richmond Hill’s appeal to move back down from 7A was approved while South Effingham High School and Statesboro will move up from 5A, turning what was a five-team region into a seven-team region.

This will likely create an interesting situation for the Tigers as they will now have less room to work with when it comes to their non-region schedule in all sports.

As for Long County and Liberty County High Schools, they will not change much going into the 2020 season. They will remain in a region with Appling County, Brantley County, Pierce County, and Tattnall County, but now that region will change from Region 2 to Region 1. The new region 2 consists of teams from the Macon area as well as Crisp County and Americus-Sumter High School, where former Bradwell coach Ross Couch is head coach.

It should be interesting to see how the upcoming seasons play out for all three area schools going forward.
