Special Report: More Changes To VHSL Reclassification (With Commentary)

Just when we had finished the first high school sports season in the "new era" of Virginia High School League (VHSL) Reclassification, the decks are about to be shuffled again.

It's the apparent result of both previously scheduled adjustments and concerns arising from a host of schools from across the Commonwealth.

Since the new alignment debuted last August, it was known that, every two years, adjustments to Conference and Regions would have to be made as school population levels fluctuated, new schools opened, and, in one case, two schools merging. The entire premise of the new 6A classification system was built on competition between schools with similar enrollment figures, with the hopes of more fair and equitable opportunities for all teams to compete for state championships, which in most sports were expanded from three to six.

In conjunction with the scheduled June 25 meeting amongst VHSL and individual school officials concerning the next alignment cycle, regions were able to express concerns about not just conference alignments, but other issues as well. One voiced multiple times was the way classifications, and the number of schools in each of the six, were divided. Another, not unexpected, was the new costs some schools are incurring with the new system.

When the 5A North representative, Stan Clements of Massaponax High School spoke, he noted that Patrick Henry had requested to be moved so that "all county schools would be in the same conference." After being in Conference 11 in a nine-team format that included Atlee and Lee-Davis, in the initial 2012 conference alignment, Patrick Henry then requested a move out of that conference, and the 5A South Region, to Conference 16 in 5A North, which, at the time, was just a three-team entity. Thus, this request is a "back to the future" move. In the end, it was only partially proposed (more below).

The concerns are not just in our area. C.D. Hylton High School wanted Conferences 4 and 8, which are in completely different regions of the 6A Classification, to merge for "financial and travel reasons for all Prince William County Schools".

At the April 8th meeting of this group, a "10 percent parameter" was proposed, using this "cushion" to make adjustments to the next cycle of conference and region assignments once the March 31, 2014 school enrollment figures were released. Most regions opposed the idea, and it was voted down in June by an 11-2 vote (Atlee principal Jennifer Cohodas, representing the 5A South Region, voted no, having supported it.)

Then, in another twist, the old met the new, as a motion was made and approved unaminously, to "move" Patrick Henry from the Colonial to the Capital District, in exchange for Glen Allen High School. Immediately, the question begs itself, why worry about District alignments that were part of the old system?  It gives indication that the VHSL will allow schools to continue allowing "regular season district play" prior to teams moving into Conference and Region tournaments through 2016-17. Some had believed district schedules continued in play just during the current two-year cycle (2013-14 and 2014-15) to allow schools more time to prepare for the complete changeover to the Conference format, meaning new opponents, rivalries, and in some cases, new travel costs.

So, when the proposed 2015-16 and 2016-17 Conference and Region alignments were released, so were new "proposed" District alignments.

If districts are "gone", why propose changes for another cycle? In the November 13, 2012 committee meeting, VHSL Executive Director Ken Tilley referred to districts such as the Capital and Colonial as "going out of existence".

So, from our cursory look at the minutes from the June 25th meeting, it looks like regular seasons for the foreseeable future will consist of "district" schedules from the past for many schools, changes for some, and more postseason Conference Tournament Games between teams who never see each other in regular season play. There are also some proposals that will end postseason matchups that survived the initial change to the new system.

To keep rivalries and cut down costs? It's certainly possible. It's also possible there's just not completely cemented agreement on the new system.

We certainly invite comment from anyone on the VHSL Alignment Committee. Appeals by schools to the proposed new alignment plan must be in the League office by July 24th. The Committee meets again August 11th and will submit a final alignment plan for approval on September 17th.

Here's the link to the proposed 2015-16, 2016-17 Region and Conference Alignments: CLICK HERE

Here are the proposed NEW Conferences which would be voted upon in September, taking effect in the Fall of 2015 (teams moved in bold with former Conference/Region (if applicable) in parenthesis):

6A SOUTH:

Conference 3:
Clover Hill (12, 5A South)
Cosby
Thomas Dale
Franklin County
Patrick Henry-Roanoke
James River (Midlothian)
Manchester (12, 5A South)

5A SOUTH:

Conference 11:
Douglas Freeman
Glen Allen (20, 4A South)
Henrico
Hermitage
Lee-Davis
J.R. Tucker (20, 4A South)

Conference 12:
L.C. Bird
Halifax (3, 6A South)
Highland Springs (11)
Matoaca
Meadowbrook
Prince George
Varina (3, 6A South)

5A NORTH:

Conference 16:
Albemarle
Atlee (11, 5A South)
Deep Run (11, 5A South)
Mills Godwin (11, 5A South)
Patrick Henry
Orange

4A SOUTH:

Conference 20:
Dinwiddie
Hanover
Huguenot (26, 3A East)
Midlothian
Monacan
Powhatan (19)

NOTES:

--Conference 3 would become a seven-team conference, up from six, with five of the schools from Chesterfield County, Clover Hill and Manchester moving up in classification.
--Conference 11 would shrink by two to a six-team conference, with Glen Allen and J.R. Tucker joining close county neighbors Hermitage and Douglas Freeman. Lee-Davis would be the only non-Henrico school, now the "loner" in Hanover County.
--Conference 12 moves to seven teams, adding Halifax, and both Highland Springs and Varina, looking to keep those two Eastern Henrico rivals together now that they are in the same classification (Varina moving down from 6A)
--Conference 16 adds two teams, and three new members as Halifax departs. Atlee joins Patrick Henry, with far West End schools Deep Run and Mills Godwin joining them, ending postseason Conference games between, for example, the 2014 Conference 11 Baseball Championship between archrivals Douglas Freeman and Mills Godwin.
--Conference 20 is lessened by one to six teams, says goodbye to Glen Allen and J.R. Tucker (as well as Caroline) and adds Huguenot (moving up a classification) and Powhatan from a now-imploded Conference 19.

REMINDER: This is a proposal. Nothing is set in stone for the next cycle until, at the earliest, September 17th.

LISTEN LIVE to Douglas Freeman in State Baseball Championship!

County teams go 1-2 on State Semifinal Saturday in Fairfax, as the Douglas Freeman baseball team rolled behind the pitching of Daniel Lynch to a 7-0 win over Freedom-South Riding to advance to Sunday's 1pm title game.

The Rebels will face Hickory, whom they defeated in a six-run comeback in the sixth inning eight nights ago in the 6A South Region Final 6-4, at Robinson Secondary School in Fairfax.

LISTEN LIVE to Douglas Freeman/Hickory, Sunday at 12:45PM HERE at HenricoCountySports.net! Just click on the Mixlr player at the top of the page!

In soccer action, four goals were tallied in the match's final 15 minutes, but it was Albemarle who scored last, taking a heart-stopping 4-3 victory over Mills Godwin in the 5A Boys Semifinal at Lake Braddock Secondary School. The Eagles' first defeat since April 9th ended their season a game short of the title game.

Elizabeth Ball and Deep Run will not get a chance to defend their state crown of a year ago, as the Wildcats fell 1-0 to Stone Bridge on a late second half goal. After a 1-3-1 start, the Wildcats won 15 straight, including the 5A South Region Championship, before falling this evening.

CHAMPIONS: Wildcats, Eagles, Rebels All Claim Trophies!

It was a county sweep Friday evening in Tidewater as Deep Run girls soccer, Douglas Freeman baseball, and Mills Godwin boys soccer each claimed 5A South Region Championships, each against Hickory High School.

The Rebels came from behind to knock off Hickory at Norfolk State University, 6-4, scoring all of their runs in the 6th inning. Douglas Freeman is now 25-1, winners of seven straight since their lone loss of the season to Hanover on May 21st. The Hawks are in the 4A State Semifinals.  The Rebels play next Friday in the 5A State Semis.

Elizabeth Ball does it again, scoring both goals as Deep Run shut out Hickory 2-0 to win the 5A South Girls Soccer crown. The Wildcats improve to 16-3-1 after starting the season 2-3-1, having not lost since April 1st, and next play in next Friday's 5A State Semfinals, two wins away from back-to-back state crowns.

Mills Godwin takes advantage of a late penalty to score the match's lone goal, as the Eagles knocked off Hickory 1-0 in the 5A South Boys Soccer finals. The Eagles are now 20-1, winners of 16 straight going back to a come-from-behind 2-1 win at Patrick Henry on April 10th. Mills Godwin plays next Friday in the 5A State Semis.
