The Alabama High School Athletic Association announced new alignments for athletic teams across the state, as well as a new Class 7A Classification. With this new classification, the guidelines for each classification changed slightly, and some schools across the state have changed classifications due to the changes.
Haleyville High School will remain in Class 4A and will be Region 5 for football. However, Hamilton will move from the 3A classification to 4A and will enter the same region as Haleyville. The new football region includes Carbon Hill, Cordova, Curry, Danville, Fayette County, Haleyville, and Hamilton. In other sports, Haleyville will be Class 4A Area 13, which includes Danville, Haleyville, and Hamilton.
