NCHSAA: First draft of revised conferences for 2021-22 school year

Staff report

Conference alignments announced Thursday are not final. They are the first draft.

Schools have a month to appeal their assigned conference.

There are more split leagues than ever. Rowan County schools never have been involved in a split league, but it would be  positive to have North Rowan and Salisbury back in the same league. The proposed league would be very beneficial to North as far as travel and gates.

Eight-team leagues are ideal from a scheduling standpoint. This proposal has Carson, South Rowan, West Rowan and East Rowan in the same eight-team 3A league.

This also looks like a great situation for A.L. Brown and Mooresville. They’ll be 4A, but they won’t be in a “Charlotte” 4A.
