Conference Realignment Task Force Reviews Remanded Football-Only Plans

STEVENS POINT, Wis. – The Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association Conference Realignment Task Force today re-evaluated the football-only conference plans remanded by the Board of Control in March.

The 11-player football conferences – and schools associated with those remanded – that were re-evaluated by the Task Force included the Capitol, Dunn-St. Croix, Eastern Suburban, Heart O’ North, Lakeland, Southwest, Southwest Athletic League and Trailways.

After a review of the eight football-only conference plans remanded back for further consideration, the Task Force will recommend a proposal to the Board with the four changes. The modifications include Brodhead/Juda being switched to the Southwest Conference, Southwestern/East Dubuque, Ill. placed in the Southwest Athletic League, Parkview/Albany moved to the Trailways and the Milwaukee Excellence Charter School aligned with the Capitol Conference.

The Task Force will also recommend a plan to the Board that maintains the original proposals involving the Eastern Suburban and Capitol Conferences, including Poynette and Horicon/Hustisford, as well as the Dunn-St. Croix, Heart O’ North and Lakeland Conferences.

The revised Task Force recommendations will be presented to the Board for final consideration at its April 25 meeting.

Football-only realignment decisions by the Board will be implemented in the Fall of 2024. Complete details of the remanded and approved conference configurations for both 11-player and 8-player football, and more information on the conference realignment process are available on the Conference Realignment page of the WIAA website.
