Worth opts for Class AAAA, regions announced today

TIFTON — The Georgia High School Association will be releasing regions today, but did drop a bit of tantalizing information Monday. It released a list of teams that had applied to move up from their initially assigned classifications.

The Worth County Rams, which were placed in Class AAA when the classification lists came out a couple of weeks ago, have asked to go to AAAA. That is also the hopeful landing spot for fellow AAA schools Dougherty and Albany. The GHSA granted the wish to all three two years ago, placing them in 1-AAAA.

The Cook Hornets did not apply to move up from AAA, but their fate is still a guess. They were  a AAA school the last time, but because Dougherty, Albany and Worth went AAAA, they were alone. Deemed too distant to be placed in any AAA region, the GHSA put them back in AA.

While not Tiftarea schools, Tift County appears to have lost two Region 1-AAAAAA mates. Neither Brunswick nor Coffee requested to leave AAAAA. No schools in the state applied to jump up from their classifications to AAAAAA. Class A schools were also apparently pleased with their lot, as none applied to go to AA.

Only 24 schools asked to move to a higher division. Marist was the lone school to ask to go up more than one, from AA to AAAA.
