The Commercial Appeal is reporting that MLK Prep is closing at the end of the school year.  Its returning students will transfer to Trezevant for the 2024-2025 school year.

Was there a reason why they're closing? Not totally sure that students have to go to Trezevant.

the news story said that the contract between the operator of the school and the school board was expiring and was not going to be renewed.  The news story also reported that the students would be going to Trezevant as that is the closest Shelby county school.

Students will transfer to Trezevant. Students who are good at football will transfer to MASE.

Will Trez remain 2A after the influx of another 2A school?

MASE is a charter. They can accept kids from any where. 

And that needs to go, Charter ,private ,magnet,city and any school that operates differently than pure public schools should be separated. What really needs to be done is address urban and rural. About all the usual powers have access to several kids from other schools period.

For perspective the county school I’m associated and graduated from only has 7,600 people in the entire county with a median age of roughly 47. That’s not very many 14-18 year olds to choose from. I think the football team had 25-28 kids or around there. 
On the other hand Shelby County has 916,000+ with a median age of 36. This isn’t just about Shelby county, but all the big ones with huge economic advantages! 

An urban/rural split would benefit tons of smaller schools that have to compete with counties with 120x the amount of people. Especially the ones who can pick and choose their players from a pool like that!
 

I also agree with Pujo about charter and magnets and they will eventually be phased into the private divisions because it is obviously an advantage plus all the funding! Add that county schools can’t go recruit outside of their county like charters and magnets!

    • Yes. Very lethal, especially her step back game.  Very good at getting separation.  She'll be a big fish in a small pond at unaka.  North Greene has a very good post.  She's a double double every game.  The other 4 are solid.  Abingdon has the best post I've seen so far.  
    • Pencil them in for Black Friday due to the district 7 and region 8 being weak. Pearl-Cohn is still the favorite out of the Regions 5/6 but there are much better suitors to potentially eliminate PC compared to the suitors trying to eliminate Haywood.
    • Yea I agree! June means nothing especially if you don’t make it past region! Champions are made in March not June. 
    • Was the transfer that Unaka got the shooting guard from Elizabethton?  We played Betsy once last year, and seems like she hit about 4 threes against if it's the one I'm thinking about.  I did see somewhere this spring she had an NLI deal.
    • Yes I was there.  I thought we played pretty good against you guys.  We were without our starting point guard who tore an acl back in February.  She is definitely our best overall player especially defensively.  I also got to see your all state player against Hampton.  She's got one of the best finishing games I've seen at this level.  I really enjoyed the gate city camp.  It's laid back and fun.  I have twins on the team #1 and #21.
