NCHSAA Announces Realignment For 2013 PDF Print
Written by Staff Reports   
Sunday, 04 December 2011 09:17

The North Carolina High School Athletic Association has released its initial draft of the 2013-17 realignment.
What has been projected so far is a computer generated initial draft that will officially

take place in August of 2013. And according to the NCHSAA, after seeing the initial drafts there might be places geographically where split conferences, for instance,  may help and force changes. But the process is in its beginning stage and won't be approved until next May, so schools still have plenty of time to provide feedback and alternative solutions, including at a series of meetings in January concerning realignment and classification. The Realignment Committee will have a lot to take in.
As of now, Watauga High will remain a Class 4A school with an enrollment of 1,435 students. And the Pioneers, as of now, would be grouped in a conference with South Caldwell, Alexander Central, McDowell, T.C. Roberson and Lake Norman. It would be a Class 4A conference only.
If that conference realignment is approved, T.C. Roberson, for instance, is looking at a 200-mile round trip to Lake Norman, and a shade under that for games at Alexander Central.
Hickory, St. Stephens, Hibriten and Fred T. Foard are in a better situation travel-wise. That group would join Statesville, North Iredell, South Iredell and West Iredell in a Class 3A conference.
Ashe County would be group into a Class 2A conference with Draughn, East Burke, North Wilkes, West Caldwell, West Wilkes and Wilkes Central. Avery would be moved into a Class 1A conference that includes Alleghany, East Wilkes, Elkin, Mitchell and Starmount.
