TSSAA Adding Additional Classification For Basketball, Softball, and Baseball

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – The Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association Board of Control is adding a classification for basketball, baseball and softball. The change approved Monday starts in the 2021-2022 school year. The board voted to increase the number of Division I classes from three to four in the three sports. The organization said in a news release that the board voted to continue to bring eight teams to the state tournament in each of the three sports. Football will keep the same number of classes: six in Division I and three in Division II. Other sports will see no change.
