MHSAA to vote on seventh classification
Every other year, the Mississippi High School Activities Association reclassifies its teams based on up-to-date enrollment numbers.
But soon enough, there could be a massive shift in who calls who district rival.
Yesterday, the MHSAA executive committee discussed the prospect of adding a seventh classification and is set to vote on the matter in April, according to Brandon Shields of Capital Sports Mississippi.
The current landscape is classes 1A through 6A, the latter featuring the 32 biggest schools in the state.
One source tells News 25 the potential class 7A would include the 24 biggest schools, shrinking the gap between big and small.
The last time the MHSAA added an extra classification was 2009, now known as Class 6A.
