Region reclassification help

We’re about two months away from the start of the high school football season, but it can’t hurt to go over the new regions as the GHSA went through the reclassification process.


Also, this is for football. So, some regions (7-A, for example) will be split up into subregions for, say, basketball.


Note: area teams in bold



Region 2

Evans (up from AAAA)

Greenbrier (up from AAAA)

Grovetown (up from AAA)

Houston County

Jones County

Lakeside (up from AAAA)

Northside (Warner-Robins)

Warner Robins

Once the highest classification, AAAAA is now No. 2. This region has a Columbia County feel, with four such schools populating it. All four have moved up, with Grovetown jumping up two classes.



Region 3

Subregion B

Burke County


Cross Creek

Glenn Hills


Richmond Academy

(all moved up from AAA)

This is the busiest local subregion/region with six area squads. Liberty County, South Effingham, Statesboro and Wayne County make up Subregion A.



Region 3

Dodge County

Jefferson County (up from AA)

Swainsboro (up from AA)


Washington County

We should see some great games in this region; Thomson-Jefferson County (in Thomson) is the last game of the regular season for the two schools.



Region 3


East Laurens

Josey (down from AAA)

Harlem (down from AAA)


Screven County

Westside (down from AAA)

Five area teams here. The big news is Josey-Laney will be a region game.


Region 8

Subregion A

Greene County


Oglethorpe County

Rabun County

Riverside Military

Social Circle

Union County

Washington-Wilkes (up from A)

Washington-Wilkes was previously in Region 7-A.



Region 7


First Presbyterian

Georgia Military

Glascock County

Hancock Central

Lincoln County

Twiggs County

Warren County

Wilkinson County

Lincoln County was tentatively moved to Region 8, but because there was no public school exodus, the Red Devils are here.

Also, as many folks know by now, Hancock Central and Warren County are scheduled to meet in Warrenton on Sept. 28.
