Wednesday, November 17th, 2010 - Print Article

Lincoln County’s four district schools “aren’t going anywhere!” — that is, since the Mississippi High School Activities Association has released the 2011-2013 sports classifications for schools in Mississippi. West Lincoln and Bogue Chitto will remain at Class 1A while Loyd Star and Enterprise shall remain at Class 2A.

Some interesting notes taken: Hinds AHS has dropped to Class 1A and now the 6th largest 1A school in the state. West Lincoln follows Hinds as the 8th largest 1A. Additionally, Piney Woods will come into view as the 30th largest Class 1A school. Bogue Chitto comes in at 20th largest. Enterprise will come in as the 19th largest Class 2A in the state with Loyd Star at 23rd. 

The new classifications will take effect starting August 2011.
