The Westfall football team is on the move, following an announcement by the Ohio High School Athletic Association regarding divisional assignments.
Westfall, which has been in Division IV the past two seasons, will be moving back down to Division V for the upcoming season, where it has normally resided since the OHSAA expanded the number of football divisions from six to seven.
The Mustangs join Amanda-Clearcreek in Division V, while Circleville and Logan Elm remain in Division IV and Teays Valley continues its residence in Division II.
Defending Mid-State League Buckeye Division co-champion Bloom-Carroll was one of 14 schools across the state to move down a division due to competitive balance, as the district’s growing enrollment would have landed the Bulldogs in Division III but instead they’ll spend another season in Division IV.
Hamilton Township remains in Division III and Fairfield Union continues on in Division IV.
In the Scioto Valley Conference, Unioto has moved up from Division IV to Division III and Zane Trace moves down from Division IV to Division V.
Piketon remains in Division V, while Adena, Southeastern, Huntington and Paint Valley will continue competing in Division VI.
The OHSAA will release regional assignments within each division next week.
