Prep sports: Changes proposed for area conferences

By

Athletic directors received a shake-up in their inboxes Tuesday.

The WIAA sent an email containing a draft for a realignment proposal that will affect several area conferences and schools, likely beginning with the 2014-15 season.

The proposal has the Fox River Classic Conference contracting from 12 to 10 schools with Green Bay East and Green Bay West moving to the Bay Conference, which is something that has been discussed for several years.

The Bay, which currently has nine teams, would become a 10-school league. In addition to East and West, it would gain Menasha from the Fox Valley Association and Appleton Xavier from the Eastern Valley Conference.

Three current Bay teams would change conferences. Hortonville would join the FVA, Oconto Falls the EVC and Denmark the Eastern Wisconsin Conference.

Wrightstown would leave the Olympian for the EVC and Kewaunee would go from the Packerland to the Olympian.

The Packerland would add Oneida Nation, which currently is independent.

The proposal for realignment is being brought up to try to create more even leagues based on enrollments.
