When the new conferences and classifications were rolled out by the Arkansas Activities Association, attention was immediately drawn to the 3A-4.

Naturally, the conference would be one to pay attention to as defending 3A champion Charleston is coming off a 15-0 season. But now the league is home to a pair of teams that went undefeated last season. Booneville won class 4A but now drops down to make things even more interesting.

"People talk about dropping down,Booneville dropping down from 4A, we should dominate but I've told our kids, I've told our coaches that a lot of the teams in 3A are just as good as the teams we played last year in 4A," Booneville coach Scott Hyatt said.

CaptureThe Tigers and Bearcats have scrimmaged one another in recent history but Charleston knows that an already tough league got even tougher.

"Anytime you can add Booneville and Two Rivers in our conference, our level of competition just got tougher," Charleston coach Greg Kendrick said.

Six of the eight teams in the 3A-4 remain the same but the addition of Booneville prompted Cedarville being moved north to the 3A-1.

cedThe Pirates will join area teams West Fork, Greenland and Elkins.
