CENTRAL WINS GHSA APPEAL

THOMASVILLE — In the final step of the Georgia High School Association's appeal process, Thomas County Central won Tuesday before the executive committee in Macon.



By a 32-13 vote, Central's appeal to be granted isolation in all sports down to Class AAAA was approved. The Yellow Jackets will compete in Region 1-AAAA. Last week in an appeal to the reclassification committee, Central was denied by a 10-2 vote.

Barely falling into Class AAAAA for the second straight reclassification process, Central was granted isolation status in all sports except football in a Dec. 3 meeting by the reclassification committee. Bainbridge, also from Class AAAAA to AAAA, and Camden County, from AAAAAA to AAAAA, were permitted to drop a class in all sports except football due to isolation.

However Evans, near Augusta, and Savannah-area schools Effingham County and Richmond Hill were granted isolation from AAAAAA to AAAAA for all sports, leading to Central's appeal based on disparate treatment.

 

See Wednesday's edition for full details on Central's win.
