Spring sports classifications revealed

The Alabama High School Athletic Association Central Board of Control approved school alignments for the spring sports of baseball, softball, soccer, tennis, golf and outdoor track for the 2024-2025 and 2025-2026 school years.

The AHSAA’s action came at a special virtual meeting May 23.

Alignments for fall and winter sports, based on the number of schools declaring to participate in each sport for the upcoming school years and the reclassification of schools for the next classification period were released earlier this school year, in December and March, respectively. Some sports may include two or more classes in a division based on the number of declared participants.

There had been some speculation that baseball and softball could move to region play similar to football, but the AHSAA kept the area format instead.

Below are the area alignments for teams in Franklin County:
