Midvale • The Utah High School Activities Association made its first steps toward a six-classification football system on Thursday, drafting its first version of the plan on how to best split up the state’s 103 football programs starting next fall.

There was no small amount of confusion and posturing as the trustees divvied up the schools by enrollment, splitting up the current 3A region into 3AA and 3A regions.

Among the larger 3AA are the more competitive programs: Juan Diego, Stansbury and the other St. George and Cedar City schools. Delta, Grantsville

The state’s 5A and 4A classes will stay mostly intact for all sports, with a few shifts because of changing enrollment. Herriman and Westlake will likely move into 5A, while Kearns slides down into 4A. Granger and Mountain Crest are likely to swap positions to stay in 5A and 4A respectively.

The 4A classification bulges with new schools in the plan, including Ogden, Wasatch, Payson and Spanish Fork.
