Though appeals still have to be heard in September, the SCHSL has finished the realignment proposal that would take effect for 2014-2016. In the plan, Aiken drops down from Class AAAA to Class AAA into a region with Midland Valley, and Strom Thurmond goes from Class AAA to Class AA.
The SCHSL’s executive committee will hear reclassification/realignment appeals in September. Appeals must include an alternative proposal.
In Class AAAA, the highest classification, North Augusta and South Aiken would remain region mates in Region 5-AAAA.
In Class AA, Strom Thurmond and Silver Bluff will still be in different regions even after Strom Thurmond’s potential move, with the Rebels in Region 2-AA and the Bulldogs in Region 5-AA.
In Class A, Fox Creek will be in Region 1-A, which includes McCormick and Ridge Spring-Monetta (football only).
