HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -
Nine North Alabama high schools are moving up
to a new class.
The Alabama High School Athletic Association
approved an updated seven
class system for the next two years. The move is one that has been needed
for some time. Many coaches in the state and North Alabama expected the move.
Bob Jones, Buckhorn, Grissom, Hazel Green,
Huntsville, James Clemens and Sparkman will join Gadsden City as the new 7A
Region 4 schools.
The shake-up causes a much different looking
Class 6A. For football only, the new Class 6A Region 8 includes Athens, Austin,
Cullman, Decatur, Florence, Hartselle and Muscle Shoals.
The new Class 6A Region 7 includes
Albertville, Arab, Brewer, Lee, Southside, Scottsboro and Fort Payne.
