AHSAA Reclassification Updated For 2012-14
Classes (With Enrollment) Alignments (Football Basketball)
The Alabama High School Athletic Association reclassification for 2012-13 and 2013-14 has been updated to include Pope John Paul II Catholic High School of Huntsville, which inadvertently was omitted from the list approved by the Central Board of Control Wednesday morning.
“Pope John Paul II in Huntsville was left out,” Executive Director Steve Savarese said. “They did declare their intent to play at the varsity level in the next classification period after having played at the junior varsity level the previous two years.
“The only changes that affect classifications are Chelsea moving to Class 6A, and Saint Paul’s moving to Class 5A.”
Adjustments to the reclassification alignments include:
· Saint Paul’s Episcopal moves from Class 4A, Region 1 to Class 5A, Region 1.
· Chelsea moves from Class 5A, Region 4 to Class 6A, Region 4.
· Saraland moves from Class 5A, Region 1 to Class 5A, Region 3.
· Chilton County moves from Class 5A, Region 3 to Class 5A, Region 4.
· Andalusia moves from Class 4A, Region 2 to Class 4A, Region 1.
· Tallassee moves from Class 4A, Region 3 to Class 4A, Region 2.
· Dallas County moves from Class 4A, Region 4 to Class 4A, Region 3.
· Carbon Hill moves from Class 4A, Region 8 to Class 4A, Region 4.
· Priceville moves from Class 4A, Region 7 to Class 4A, Region 8.
· Pope John Paul II moves into Class 4A, Region 7.
Coordinators for each region will be appointed by Nov. 28. No football scheduling meetings can take place prior to this date.
Other sports alignments will be posted as they are completed.
