BUTTE — During Monday's MHSA executive board meeting, a number of announcements were made and requests were approved by the board.
One request directly affects Class B football alignment in Southwestern Montana.
Joining the Western B and leaving the Southern B are Deer Lodge JV, and Whitehall/Harrison. The move comes as a result of Poplar and Harlem/Turner leaving Class B, and joining 8-player football.
The Western B now shapes up as follows: Anaconda, Bigfork, Florence, Lincoln, Loyola, Deer Lodge JV and Whitehall/Harrison.
There were other realignments in Class A and 6-man. Joining the Southwest Conference of Class A is East Helena. West Yellowstone joins the West in 6-player football.
Class AA remains the same.
