PARKERSBURG, W.Va. (AP) – The West Virginia Secondary School Activities Commission has released high school classifications for the next four years.
The list released Thursday has 29 schools in Class AAA, 44 in Class AA and 54 in Class A. Several Class A schools don’t sponsor football.
Schools dropping down to Class AA are Elkins, Lewis County, Lincoln County, Logan, Nitro, Oak Hill, Point Pleasant, Shady Spring and Winfield. They were the smallest Class AAA schools in the 2011 classification.
Ravenswood, Ritchie County, Mount View, Summers County, Tolsia and Webster County are moving from Class AA to Class A, while Class A Man is moving up to Class AA.
The classifications are based on school enrollments and are effective from the 2016 through the 2019 school years.
