Are You Ready for Some Realignment?

Posted: Updated:
MONTPELIER, Vt. -

The state's athletic directors approved realignment for high school football in a meeting Thursday in Montpelier.  All that awaits is the stamp of approval by the Vermont Principles association.  The biggest change will come in Division III. Otter Valley, U-32 and Springfield will be joining on as Montpelier leaves to play a JV schedule. With 12 teams in Division III, the top 8 will qualify for the postseason, which will now start on week 9, similar to Division I.

Spaulding is the only team leaving D-I, headed for Division II.  D-I is now 13 teams strong, so that means the team that finishes last in the division will not play a game on week 9.  D-II is still an 8 team division, so it's business as usual with the top 4 teams going to the playoffs.  This alignment would be good for the next two seasons.
