AHSAA goes to seven-class system; Pinson Valley, Corner and Fultondale move up in class

MONTGOMERY — The Alabama High School Athletic Association's Central Board of Control has voted to expand the current six-class system for member schools, adding a seventh class for the very largest high schools.

The motion passed unanimously at the board's meeting Wednesday morning at AHSAA headquarters in suburban Montgomery.

The biennial reclassification has significant impacts on several local teams. The big news comes for Pinson Valley and Center Point, both of which move up to 6A. Corner and Dora also make the jump to 5A from 4A. Fultondale, as anticipated, advances to 3A.

Mortimer Jordan and Hayden remain in Class 5A, and Locust Fork stays in 4A.

AHSAA Executive Director Steve Savarese will hold a press conference later Wednesday afternoon to discuss the new classifications.

This is a developing story; we'll have updates as warranted.
