For the next two years, the high school football landscape on the Gulf Coast will look a little different as it does every two years.
New regions announced for the most recent MHSAA reclassification and there’s quite a few local schools on the move.
Starting with St. Stanislaus moving down from region 8 Class 4A to 83A where the Rock-A-Chaws will join St. Patrick, who is moving up from region 8 class 2A.
That’s a huge move for SSC who’s been in the 4A ranks since 1989.
Taking its place is Stone, moving over from region 7 and then Greene County jumping into replace Vancleave also from region 7.
Bay High, Moss Point, and Pass Christian all remain steady.
Vancleave is getting the call up to region 4 class 5A where there’s a lot of moving parts. George County is also dropping down from region 3 class 6A and West Harrison down from 46A.
Hattiesburg and Wayne County are joining more local competition in region 3.
Pascagoula is taking West Harrison’s place in region 4 class 6A to round things out.
Other schools staying put in their respective regions, Poplarville in region 7 class 4A and Resurrection Catholic in region 4 class 1A.
Overall, seven Coast teams are moving.
