    Southside
    Chester Co.
    McNairy
    Adamsville

    District 14
    Northside
    South Gibson
    Milan
    Crockett
    Westview
    Obion Co
    Dyersburg

    District 15
    Bolivar
    Fayette-Ware
    Haywood
    Ripley
    Covington
    Millington

    District 16
    Grad Academy
    MLK Prep
    Hamilton
    Melrose
    Mitchell
    Raleigh Egypt
    Sheffield

    I agree, you never know what the TSSAA is going to do. But, I don't see them leaving Scotts Hill out of a district with Lexington and Riverside. They are 20 minute drives if that from those schools. Unless they have to have teams to fill district 12, I don't see those schools in that district and if they are, Scotts Hill goes with them. Adamsville and McNairy are shorter drives to those schools than Northside.

    TSSAA has on the last few occasions divided Southside and Northside up in different districts mainly cause Southside is closer to these schools than schools in other districts.

    I believe they put Ripley in District 15 to make it 6 teams in a region. Who knows what TSSAA will do, but I just don't see them breaking up District 13 from the way I have it unless they move Southside out of it or have to have schools for District 12. These schools are just too close of a drive to each other and usually play each other now in these sports because of that.

    Another possible combo could be as follows based on geography (assuming Melrose and Hamilton elect to play up as they have previously):

    13AA:
    Riverside
    Lexington
    Scotts Hill
    McNairy
    Adamsville
    Chester Co

    14AA:
    Obion
    Westview
    Dyersburg
    Milan
    South Gibson
    Crockett
    Ripley

    15AA:
    Northside
    South Side
    Bolivar
    Fayette Ware
    Covington
    Haywood
    Millington

    16AA:
    Craigmont
    Mitchell
    Sheffield
    MLK
    GRAD
    Trezevant
    Raleigh Egypt
    Wooddale

    The determining factor will be how many Memphis teams choose to play up and what they decide to do in Knoxville, Chattanooga and lower middle TN. As it currently stands there are significantly unbalanced districts numbers wise that need reshuffling and likely reassignment that causes the loss of some classic district rivalries.

    If some of the Memphis schools decide to move up, Fayette-Ware could go to Memphis district and change things up. Bolivar in District 13 is still possible. They have more shorter drives in that district and the longest drives in that district are still shorter than drives in District 15. It will be interesting how they will divide these up, a lot of different ways.

    District 13
    Lexington
    Riverside
    Scotts Hill
    Chester Co
    McNairy
    Adamsville
    Bolivar

    District 14
    Southside
    Northside
    South Gibson
    Milan
    Westview
    Obion Co

    District 15
    Dyersburg
    Crockett Co
    Haywood
    Ripley
    Covington
    Millington

    District 16
    Memphis Teams
    Fayette-Ware

    That looks good. Think the 13-AA schools(Dyersburg,Crockett,Westview)will want to stay together. Short trips, rival games, etc. Now 14-AA I would go Adamsville, South Side, McNairy, Chester County, Lexington, Riverside. Bolivar and Fayette-Ware I think move to 15-AA.

    Ripley
    Covington
    Millington

    District 16
    Memphis Teams
    Fayette-Ware

    Why can't Millington just go to 16 and be with Fayette-Ware and Memphis teams? Other than that, I like it. But is Riverside, Scotts Hill, and Adamsville guarantee AA teams? How is this alignment different from football?

    From what I see here, everyone thinks the current Districts are all going to get blown up and they start from scratch in West TN. Why not just take South Side and Fayette Ware out of 14 put them in 15 to replace JCM and Liberty (Moved up to 3A). Then add Scott's Hill, Riverside and Adamsville to District 14 to fill it up. Move Riverside across the river to District 11 and your are done. I think We are only dealing with 3 new 2A teams and we lose 2. District 16 basically stays the same. Would that work or am I missing something?

    Plus. If I were Scott's Hill and Riverside I would appeal to stay 1A. It will be tough for them to compete in 2A.
