Wesson, with 312 students, has recently been one of the larger 2A schools in the state will be moving up to 3A in years 2013-2015.  They join Hazlehurst (364) and Crystal Springs (447).  Wesson is now the sixth smallest 3A school.  Crystal Springs is the fourth largest.
Sumrall is the largest 3A school in the state with 365 students.  The smallest is M. S. Palmer in Marks with 307.
As expected, Tupelo High School is the largest school in the state, and the only one with over 2,000 students.  Dexter remains the smallest school with just 61 students.  Only five other schools have enrollments that are less than 100 according to this release on the MHSAA website.
Regions have not yet been set.  As far as all three county schools being in the same region, the chance is about event at 50/50.
