Figures point to tough road for Carolina Forest in realignment

In the next several weeks, athletics directors are likely to get their hands on the much-discussed five-class realignment proposals that will take effect starting a year from now.

It will be the next step in the largest such shift in South Carolina High School League history. Amid all the guesswork and finger-crossing, though, Carolina Forest and Athletics Director Tripp Satterwhite may have the most on the line.

The school’s enrollment figures give it a sizable advantage over any other local school. So Carolina Forest already knew it was a possibility it may be the lone Class AAAAA program in Horry County.

Numbers officially released by the SCHSL recently make the situation look even less enviable.
