The sports teams from Callaway, LaGrange and Troup know where their region homes are going to be for the next two school years.


On Tuesday, the Georgia High School Association unveiled its region assignments for the next two school years.


The three local teams will be in different regions, and different classifications.


LaGrange and Troup were both slotted into Class AAAA, but LaGrange has decided to play up a classification in Class AAAAA.


Troup will be in Class AAAA, and Callaway is in Class AAA.


LaGrange will be a part of Region 1-AAAAA for the 2014-2015, and 2015-2016 school years.


There will be eight teams in the region, although two of them, Bainbridge and Thomas County Central, will be football-only members of the region.


The full-time members of the region will be LaGrange, Carver-Columbus, Columbus High, Hardaway, Harris County and Northside-Columbus.


Troup will be a member of Region 5-AAAA, the same region it has been a part of for the past two school years.


Four of the region teams will remain the same, and there will be four newcomers.


The four holdovers in the region are Troup, Carrollton, Fayette County and Sandy Creek, and the four new teams are Grady, Pike County, Whitewater and Woodward Academy.


Callaway, meanwhile, is moving from Region 4-AAA to Region 5-AAA.


The eight-team region will be divided into two sub-regions.


In one of the sub-regions, it will be Callaway, Central-Carroll, Haralson County and New Meriwether County.


In the other sub-region, it’ll be Adairsville, Cedartown, Pepperell and Rockmart.


Teams have until Dec. 13 to appeal to the GHSA for a lateral transfer to another region.


The reclassification committee will be in Thomaston on Dec. 17 to hear those appeals, and the full executive committee will meet in Macon to hear final appeals and to ratify the reclassification plan.
