GHSA Class A to Have Two State Champions

The Georgia High School Association voted Tuesday in Macon to create separate public-school and private-school playoff systems for Class A athletics and declare two Class A champions.

The motion passed 36-12 with one abstention.

The new system will take effect next school year.

The GHSA held a special called meeting Tuesday at the Macon Centreplex to discuss reclassification issues across the state.

GHSA Director Ralph Swearingin said, "We know that not everybody is going to be happy, but what it's going to mean is that private schools will be assured they have a champion." He called it a win-win situation for both private and public schools.

Coach Mark Ledford of the Wilcox County Patriots called the current state of class A an "unlevel playing field." He is certain that now the rural schools will be able to find out who is the best among other rural schools in each sport.
