South sectional schools appeal placement in football format

11 ask to be lowered

NORWOOD — Eleven of the 100 schools considered South sectional teams appeared before an MIAA Football Subcommittee Tuesday to appeal their placement in the new football playoff format.

The appeals, held at Norwood High School, were the next step in a process that started when the playoff proposal passed in a statewide vote in October. The new format has six divisions as opposed to nine last fall. The MIAA slotted schools based on enrollment, and a variety of other factors. Sixteen North schools will appeal Wednesday in Burlington. The MIAA will announce decisions by Friday.
