AAA Decision Impacts 3A and 2A Region 8 Teams

(KAIT) - The Road to Little Rock will now be the Road to Conway in 3A.

Today the AAA announced that Lamar would be reinstated in the playoffs as the number 2 seed in the 4-3A. The First Round would begin Friday, November 20th at 7:30pm in stadiums all across the state.

Only one 3A Region 8 matchup in the first round changed. Cave City will travel to Paris instead of Yellville-Summit. Rivercrest still has a first round bye, Earle will still travel to Rison, and Harrisburg will still host Jessieville.

The 3A State Championship will now be played at the University of Central Arkansas in Conway instead of War Memorial. It's scheduled for Friday, December 18th at 7pm.

With the 3A title game moving 32 miles away, the game for the 2A spoils will be played a day later. The 2A State Championship will be played Saturday, December 12th, with kickoff at noon at War Memorial in Little Rock.
