TSSAA Reclassification Hits Local Teams

Posted

The TSSAA announced the region and district reclassifications beginning in the fall of 2023 on Tuesday afternoon, November 8 for all sports.

FOOTBALL

McKenzie remains in Class 1A Region 6 but has new opponents in that region. The current region includes McKenzie, Dresden, Gleason, Hollow Rock-Bruceton, McEwen, Perry County and South Fulton. Dresden, Gleason, and South Fulton were moved to Region 7 while Houston County and West Carroll were moved into Region 6. So the updated region includes, McKenzie, Bruceton, Houston County, McEwen, Perry County and West Carroll. There is one less team in Region 6 meaning the Rebels and other region teams will have five region games and five non-region games.

Class 1A Region 5, which is the region McKenzie will face in the playoffs is much the same lineup with the exception of Fayetteville, who was bumped up to Class AA. Richland High School was moved to Region 5 to fill that spot. Region 5 includes Collinwood, Cornersville, Eagleville, Huntland, Moore County, Richland, and Wayne County.

West Carroll moved from Region 7 to Region 6. Instead of facing Trenton Peabody and Lake County, McKenzie becomes a region opponent along with Bruceton, Houston County, McEwen, and Perry County.

The Huntingdon Mustangs are now in a bigger Region 6AA. The old Region 7AA included Camden, Gibson County, Houston County, Union City, and Westview. The new region includes Adamsville, Camden, Riverside, Gibson County, Jackson Central Merry, Milan, and Trenton. This gives the Mustangs seven region contests for the next two seasons. Come playoff time, Huntingdon will face teams from Region 5 which include East Hickman, Harpeth, Hickman County, Lewis County, Loretto, Mt. Pleasant, Summertown, and Waverly.

BASKETBALL AND BASEBALL

A lot of changes took place in basketball and baseball with districts getting rearranged. McKenzie moves from District 11 to District 12. District 11 included Big Sandy, Houston County, McEwen, and McKenzie. District 12 includes McKenzie, Big Sandy, Hollow Rock-Bruceton, Houston County and McEwen. District 11 makes up the other district in Region 6 and includes Collinwood, Frank Hughes, Perry County and Wayne County. This will be the same for spring sports such as baseball and softball.

West Carroll is now in District 12 with Clarksburg, Frank Hughes, Hollow Rock-Bruceton, and Perry County. For the next two years, West Carroll moves to District 13 which includes Bradford, Clarksburg, Halls, Humboldt, and Middleton. The other district in the region is District 14 which includes Dresden, Gleason, Greenfield, Lake County, South Fulton, and Union City.

Huntingdon’s current district is District 12AA in Region 6AA and includes Gibson County, Milan, Union City, and Westview. They will remain in District 12AA with Camden, Stewart County, and Waverly. The other district in the region, District 11 includes Cheatham County, East Hickman, Harpeth, and Hickman County.

This alignment is subject to change this week but will be finalized and voted on by the TSSAA Board of Control during their November 17 meeting.
