Other than new conference additions, only one local change came from the latest TSSAA football reclassification.
For at least the next two years, West Greene football will move down to Region 1-2A in the 2023-25 cycle. With a reported enrollment of 510, just 10 behind Milk Can rival South Greene (520), the Buffaloes will reunite with the Rebels in region play.
Eagleton College & Career Academy will also join Region 1-2A, which now consists of six teams.
Region 1-3A got a lot tougher for Chuckey-Doak, as Gatlinburg-Pittman and Pigeon Forge both move in from Region 2 to make up the six-team conference.
Greeneville lost Region 1-4A rival Seymour to Region 2 but gained Northview Academy and Cherokee in conference action.
North Greene’s only conference addition is Hancock County, which temporarily shelved varsity football for two years while playing a JV schedule.
