Augusta, Ga-It's been four years since the GHSAS has gone through a major realignment based on school enrollment, and boy how things have changed.

Some of the notable changes. Grovetown is now our largest school and will be in 6A with Evans and Lakeside.

Greenbrier drops down a class. Now they could move up by after talking with their athletic director, they could just stay in 5Aa.

Big changes in 4A with ARC and Burke County the only schools there and could be in for some long road trips.

The other big change is in 3A where Thomson and Cross Creek drop down and Westside moves up. The Patriots are the smallest 3A school in the state

And the 2A and 1A schools pretty much remain the same. Now nothing is etched in stone, and schools can appeal and even decide to play up a class. We'll see what happens.
