L-E loses appeal to stay in class 4A
Will plead its case to appellate panel
MATT CAMPBELL IS NOT giving up in trying to get the SCHSL Executive Comittees ruling on keeping L-E athletic teams in class 5A overturned by taking the schools case to the appellate panel.
Given the history of appeals being approved in the past, Matt Campbell knew he was facing an uphill battle as well as long odds in trying to get the South Carolina High School League’s (SCHSL) proposed realignment plan changed as it pertained to Lugoff-Elgin High school and its athletic program. Campbell, Lugoff-Elgin’s third-year athletic director/head football coach, appealed to transfer the school’s athletic teams from the proposed Region 4-5A --- to which they had been assigned --- to being moved into Region 3-4A. The proposal was denied by an 11-0 vote of the SCHSL executive committee Wednesday morning at the SCHSL offices in Columbia. By Wednesday afternoon, Kershaw County School Superintendent Dr. Frank Morgan, L-E principal Worth Thomasson and Campbell filed an appeal to that morning’s ruling.
