Norwell to help create new athletic conference
June 6, 2013
Norwell High School and seven other schools will form a new athletic conference for the 2015-2016 school year, Principal Mark Misch announced this afternoon.
Leo Junior-Senior High School, which currently belongs to the ACAC conference that hosts Bluffton High School and Southern Wells High School, will also join this new, unnamed conference.
Misch stated in the announcement that Norwell administrators heard from several area schools last week before deciding.
He also said “academics, location, demographics and competition” influenced the decision.
Along with Norwell and Leo, the conference will host Huntington North, Bellmont, Columbia City, Dekalb, East Noble and New Haven.
Previously, Norwell played in the Northeast Hoosier Conference, but this year, the schools in that conference announced that they were disbanding it.
