Vidalia Into AAA, Toombs Remains In AA

The Georgia High School Association (GHSA) has gone through a reclassification of its member schools and that has affected one local high school. Toombs County High School will remain in AA, but Vidalia High School will be moving up to AAA to compete in sports.

Vidalia will be moving out of Region 2AA and will now be placed into Region 3AAA.That will put VHS into a Region with Appling County, Liberty County, Long County, Pierce County, and Tattnall County. Toombs County will remain in Region 2AA, which will now consist of Bleckley County, Central Macon, Dodge County, East Laurens, Lamar County, Northeast Macon, Rutland of Macon, and Southwest Macon.

Vidalia appealed the decision to be moved to AAA last Wednesday but was denied. VHS has finished in the top 10 in the Georgia Athletic Director's Cup over the past seven years, and they look to continue to work hard and show that they can keep that up even in the larger classification.

Toombs will also have several new schools that they will be facing as four of the schools will be from the Macon area.

As for the other local schools, Montgomery County, Wheeler County and Treutlen County will not be moving out of Region 4A. That Region will remain in tact with Dooly County, Dublin, Hawkinsville, Johnson County, Telfair County, and Wilcox County.

Other former Region 2AA schools have also been moved around. Bacon County, Brantley County, and Jeff Davis will now all be in Region 1AA, and Swainsboro will move to Region 4AA.

This new Region alignment is set for the 2022-2024 school years, and will be revisited at that time.
