The Georgia High School Association (GHSA) Reclassification Committee ratified the region alignments for the 2014-2016 on Tuesday, Jan. 14. As a result, Region 8-AAA will no longer include the Franklin County Lions or the North Oconee Titans, but the Jefferson Dragons, formerly a AA team, will take its place.
Franklin County will move laterally to Region 7-AAA, but North Oconee will be moving up a classification to Region 8-AAAA along with Buford and North Hall.
The Jefferson Dragons were the AA Champions in 2012 and made it into the AA quarterfinals last year. For two straight years, the Dragons have beaten the Bulldogs in pre-season games.
