The Utah High School Activities Association Board of Trustees announced region realignments Tuesday afternoon that will run from the fall of 2017 through 2019.

There will now be six classifications in all sports and activities and not just in football. There are 104 Utah schools that play football and 149 total schools. About 87,000 students participate in UHSAA activities.

The Board of Trustees will hold a public hearing December 7 at 6 p.m. at Jordan High School to take comment from interested parties before finalizing the alignment on December 8.

The big news for high school football fans is that perennial power East asked to play football only in Class 6A, the classification for the state's largest high schools. The Leopards will participate in 5A for all other sports.

If that would have been in place this fall, there would have been the possibility that unbeaten East could have tested unbeaten Bingham for the football title. Instead, the Leopards won the 4A championship while the Miners won the 5A crown.

Another football related change will see Judge and Juan Diego both play in Class 3A with Judge in the north and Juan Diego in the south. In all other sports, the two other Salt Lake area Catholic schools will play in Region 13.

Bingham now finds itself losing natural rivals West Jordan, Herriman and Riverton and as the only Salt Lake County school in Utah County-dominant Region 4.

A number of other schools switched regions and classifications in the new alignment.
