As expected, the region alignments established Tuesday by the Georgia High School Association for the 2020-21 and 2021-22 school years put Cartersville, Cass, and Woodland all in a new Region 7-AAAAA. Joining the three local schools will be Blessed Trinity, Calhoun, Hiram, and Northview to form a seven-member region. Adairsville was placed in a nine-member Region 6-AAA and will be joined by Coahulla Creek, LaFayette, Lakeview-Fort Oglethorpe, Murray County, North Murray, Ringgold, Rockmart, and Sonoraville.
The committee determined that the next meeting will be Tuesday, November 19 at 9 a.m. in the GHSA office in Thomaston. Appeals for schools wishing a lateral transfer to another region within the same classification will be heard at that time.
The fifth local school, Excel Christian Academy, will be placed in a Class A Private region. The non-football private schools were not assigned in Tuesday’s meeting, but a logical placement for ECA would be with Christian Heritage, Darlington, Mt Paran, North Cobb Christian, and Walker.
