Looking at the New Conferences for 2025 and some Rivalries will remain, but we will see a lot of Guilford County and Forsyth County mixture(“The Boys of Fall, “The Boys of Fall”, “The Boys of Fall”)

Looking at the New Conferences for 2025…And do you kind of/sort of agree, it’s just about time for the “Boys of Fall, “The Boys of Fall”, “The Boys of Fall”…..
They call this one the 8-A/7-A Conference:
Northwest Guilford
Grimsley
Page
East Forsyth
West Forsyth
WS Reagan
Davie County
WS Reynolds….At least you have NWG, Grimsley, and Page still together, and back in the day, East Forsyth used to be a member with some of these guys back in those days, and I guess when you are growing up, and going up, you have to take some of these growing pains with you…Very little common ground with Davie and Reynolds though…Grimsley-Page still around and NWG vs. Page, and NWG vs. Grimsley will continue to get bigger…

The 7-A/6-A Conference:
Dudley
Smith
Ragsdale
Southwest Guilford
Western Guilford
Glenn
Mount Tabor
WS Parkland…Dudley-Smith still good, and for a few more years at least, but the Dudley-Smith basketball games will continue to attract more attention than the Dudley-Smith football games…Mount Tabor is usually loaded in football and basketball and will present a very big challenge to our Guilford County Schools…SWG will be a sure-fire challenger in hoops and the Cowboys are growing in football, Western Guilford will just be glad to be moving down closer to their size-reality….Ragsdale is growing, lots of construction going on, over around Jamestown…

6-A/5-A Conference:
Northern Guilford
Eastern Guilford
Southeast Guilford
Northeast Guilford
Southern Guilford
High Point Central
WS Atkins
North Forsyth…NG and Eastern has been getting good lately in football, and that should continue, NG vs. NEG can build if NEG gets the right football mix going…SEG vs. SG can be good, they are not too far apart….And almost all of the thoughts on the the Guilford County teams vs. Guilford County teams, is based on football, and everybody wants a crack at Grimsley and Dudley, Right???? But, we will have brand new splits, and the key will be to get the WINS….WS Atkins and North Forsyth in here are probably good shots at Ws for the Guilford County schools, and as far as coaches go, they will take those Ws….

5-A/4A Conference:
High Point Andrews
Oak Grove
North Davidson
Lexington
Central Davidson
Ledford
West Davidson
East Davidson….Eight teams in all of these conferences and HP Andrews gets stuck out there on Highway 109 headed into Davidson County…Good luck with these new-found rivalries if you are a Red Raider from TW Andrews High School, in Guilford County…

These proposals from Bryant Roche(News and Record/N&R), and maybe taking from some of the page approvals at the NCHSAA offices, but I could not get over the N&R paywall for copy and paste sake, so I did a total reprint in my own form for here at GreensboroSports.com…

A very good look at the new possible realignments and this new setup if accepted and ready to be put in place for the new 2025 Fall Seasons, should last about another 4-5 years, and then we will talking about the next great thing, which will be the Next Great Realignments of 2031….

Will all of us be here for that momentous occasion??? Nope, so soak in this one we have posted today, and know we took time to talk to Bryant Roche yesterday, and not sure if he will agree with me, but my Motto has always been, “You gotta look out for Guilford County First”…Yes, “Guilford County First”, and the others are just lucky to be spending time with us for the ‘Conference Clashes’…..

  1. Why didn’t the NCHSAA just place Grimsley, Page, Northern with Dudley, Smith, Ragsdale, Western and Southwest. Then placed Glenn, Mt. Tabor and Southwest with East and West Forsyth, Raegan, Reynolds, Davie Co? Since they are doing split conferences. To me it would make better rivalries to keep all the W-S and Gbo Schools together and the students that know each other??? Grimsley vs Dudley in Football would be 20,000 in this County!!!

  3. @Perry Saunders Because some of those matchups you mentioned would be 6-A and 8-A or 5-A and 7-A. You can’t have a classification difference in the same conference, even a split conference.

  4. Will post the school sizes tomorrow with those ADM/Average Daily Memberships or the enrollments, and that will show how they grouped the schools…Coming up on Saturday morning…The NCHSAA does not send them out to us like they used to…Lots of new people there too, and lots of changes, but that seems to the direction we find ourselves going in…CHANGE

  6. I imagine the Rockingham County Schools will be in a split 5A/4A conference. McMichael, Morehead and Reidsville would be 4A and Rockingham would be 5A. The questions are 1) who else would be with them? And why can’t Northeast and Southern go with them as 5A schools to give that conference 3 each of 5A and 4A? Northeast is 20 miles from Rockingham Co. High School and even closer to Reidsville. If I am not mistaken, Southern and Northeast are the only 5A schools in Guilford County.
