5A classification could be in the NCHSAA’s future

CHAPEL HILL – First reported today by Nick Stevens of, North Carolina High School Athletic Association Commissioner Que Tucker announced the association’s intentions to pursue adding a fifth classification at the annual meeting held this morning.

Until the association bylaws are changed allowing a fifth classification, the administrators will begin working on the new model under a 1A through 4A system with an additional 4AA classification.

Once the bylaws are amended allowing for the named fifth class, plans will proceed in designing what the next realignment will look like, which takes effect in 2021.
