    Realignment proposal passes

    https://www.heraldonline.com/sports/high-school/article218653850.html Will be interesting to see the impact the new Catawba Ridge High School in Fort Mill has on Fort MIll and Nation Ford high schools. Article says the school will open with grades 9-11. The HSL said in the article the new school would be in region 3-4A BUT with these new realignment developments what will happen to the 9-11 enrollments for Fort Mill and Nation Ford remains to be seen. Would all 3 schools now be in 4A??? https://www.moultrienews.com/news/bengals-will-be-beckham-high-s-official-mascot/article_28c8d4b6-5f62-11e8-b4f3-cf33c047ab1f.html Lucy Beckham High School is set to open in August 2020 essentially taking kids away from the largest school in the state Wando. Not that that will make Wando a 4A school by any means but it does add another a variable to the equation. https://abcnews4.com/news/education-news/hundreds-will-go-to-stratford-instead-of-cane-bay-after-bcsd-redraws-lines There is also rezoning taking place currently in Berkeley County in regards to Cane Bay and Stratford. Both schools are large enough not to have any classification impact it seems. https://www.wyff4.com/article/the-gcs-facilities-most-requested-for-reassignment-through-lottery/26239157 Eastside High School this past winter received the greatest number of "assignment changes" for any high school in the GCSD. 216 assignment requests in total. How many of those are already attending Eastside from outside their geocode it does not indicate. Does not necessarily mean 216 NEW assignment requests. But come October 2019 Eastside could be in the mix to be a 5A school.

    Under the new realignment formula here is what 5A MIGHT look like for the 2020-22 cycle. Bare in mind this is using the 45 day count in October, 2018. IF the SCHSL still decides to use the top 48 schools to make up 5A. Currently 5A is at 48 schools and 4A is at 40 schools. See what happens in October, 2019 I guess.

  3. https://www.thestate.com/sports/high-school/prep-football/article227504224.html Had read something about this a month prior. Now its official to begin starting with 2020-22. Essentially instead of using the 135-day head count they are now going to use the 45-day count. And instead of using grades 9-12 the HSL will use grades 9-11. Couple of quick observations. A.) Using 9-11 makes more sense seeing as how those current seniors won't be around anyways. B.) Will be interesting to see if using 45 days versus 135 makes a difference at all. I'm sure some schools have worse attrition rates between the end of Q1 and the end of Q3 than some schools. Not sure where the cut off will be however, at least the article did not indicate this information. Thoughts???

    Team SC VS Team NC

    Someone with greater memory than I would be able to verify this but didn't the coaches association try this with a Georgia all-star team years back with similar outcomes?

    5A State Qualifiers

    ACTUALLY if it were up to me we'd eliminate the duals or shorten it down (none of the classifications needs a 32 team bracket) AND then crown a duals champ and a team champ at individual state. Then in true William Tecumseh Sherman spirit I'd burn this state to the ground.

    5A State Qualifiers

    Some how Ohio crowns a state champ in both duals and at the individual tournament (been crowning a team champ at individual state since the 20s, just started crowning a duals champ a few years ago). Surely SC is not above doing something similar.

    5A State Qualifiers

    This poses an interesting discussion / debate. Which method of crowning a state wrestling team champ is most appropriate? Duals or Individual State? Below is SOME data to support both sides I think, although many I'm sure will say it's a push either way and it really doesn't matter as more often than not the duals winner is also the team that scores the most team points at individual state. Again, with a few anomalies the winner of the duals is usually the best team at individual state as well or at least they are close behind. The 2017 RB squad and the 2014 Rock Hill team stand out in this regard. 2018 - rock hill (duals), fort d(ind.), rock hill finished 2nd at individuals 2017 - river bluff (duals champ), fort d (ind.), interesting that river bluff was the duals champ and therefore the official state champ but finished 8th at individuals 2016 - Dorman clean sweep both duals and individuals 2015 - rock hill won duals, couldn't find team scores from individuals for this year 2014 - rock hill won duals but summerville won individuals, rock hill finished 8th at individuals 2013 - Lexington had a clean sweep of both 2012 - Hillcrest won duals, finised 5th at individuals, Lexington won individual state 2011 - Hillcrest clean sweep of both 2010 - Fort D clean sweep of both 2009 - Rock Hill won duals state and finished 2nd at individual state while fort d took 1st at individuals 2008 - Summerville clean sweep of both 2007 - Fort D takes duals state, finished 2nd at individuals, Hillcrest wins individual state 2006 - Summerville clean sweep 2005 - Summerville clean sweep 2004 - Summerville clean sweep
  8. According to the article if the proposal they are looking at were used going into 2019-20 here is what 5A would look like next year.. Laurens, Greenwood, Chapin, Irmo and Stall would all drop to 4A. Will be interesting to see how the opening of Catawba Ridge (Fort Mill 4) and the new school on Mount Pleasant (splitting up Wando essentially) impacts realignment after 2019-20. We're on the current plan through 2019-20 so will there be any shake ups 2020-22?? Will Catawba Ridge push Fort Mill and Nation Ford down to 4A for a few years??? Especially if they use grades 9-11 as they are proposing. For fun below are classes 5A, 4A and 3A which the article says would have 43 schools in each class. Wrestling speaking 5A would have 41 schools, 4A would ave 40, 3A would have 36?? 2018-19 45 day count (5A) Wando High 3,953 Dorman High 3,409 Summerville High 3,104 Carolina Forest High 2,506 James F Byrnes High 2,458 Clover High 2,376 Ft Mill High 2,360 Boiling Springs High 2,357 Mauldin High 2,336 Ashley Ridge High 2,304 Sumter High 2,280 Fort Dorchester High 2,267 Nation Ford High 2,194 Hillcrest High 2,181 Spring Valley High 2,159 Cane Bay High 2,122 Lexington High 2,105 River Bluff High 2,047 Rock Hill High 1,994 Spartanburg High 1,986 J L Mann High Academy 1,961 White Knoll High 1,955 Goose Creek High 1,954 Blythewood High 1,907 Stratford High 1,880 Gaffney High 1,877 T L Hanna High 1,871 Northwestern High 1,865 Wade Hampton High 1,791 Riverside High 1,770 Berkeley High 1,724 Woodmont High 1,724 West Florence High 1,712 Dutch Fork High 1,707 West Ashley High 1,701 Socastee High 1,697 St. James High 1,695 South Florence High 1,683 Westside High 1,682 Lugoff Elgin High 1,633 Easley High 1,626 James Island Charter High 1,570 Conway High 1,536 45 day count for 4A R B Stall High 1,520 Eastside High 1,518 Laurens Dist 55 High 1,514 Ridge View High 1,513 York Comprehensive High 1,509 Colleton County High 1,508 Greenwood High 1,505 N Myrtle Beach High 1,491 Myrtle Beach High 1,482 Chapin High 1,474 South Pointe High 1,465 Greenville Sr High Academy 1,463 Westwood High 1,461 North Augusta High 1,449 A.

  9. Ohio does their reclassification every year and uses grades 9-11 so I can say it's been done before. I can say though that the schools that get hit the hardest when using 9-11 enrollment numbers are urban, less affluent schools who see large 9th grade classes but smaller than average 11th and 12th grade classes. Essentially making the school "large" but only because of the 9th grade (which is always the biggest class at any school I get that). What are the pro's and con's of using 45 day counts versus 135 day counts? Which schools benefit the most? Do any schools really grow during the school year? I'm sure some schools are more transient than others when it comes to enrollment but if each school sees enrollment decreases by say 1-2% during the school year then does it really matter when you do the count? Why not compromise and use the end of 1st semester (90 day count) numbers? In my completely unbiased opinion they need to do what Ohio does and allow each sport to determine their own classifications. In Ohio football has 7 divisions, wrestling has 3, basketball has 4, ice hockey has 1, etc....
  10. Ohio has only used the dual format recently. The OHSAA allows lower division schools to declare themselves into a higher division playoff which Graham has done. During the traditional tournament they go right back down to their appropriate division.
  11. Good post. Probably the best post of the year if not years on this board.
