Prep Football

STEVENS POINT, Wis. – Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association Board of Control approved a first consideration of a conference alignment plan for eight-player football beginning in 2020 at its May meeting.

The plan places eight-player programs into eight, six-team conferences. Each conference will be paired with another six-team league in their region to provide crossover games.

Florence (108 students) would play in conference A of the Northeast Region, joining Suring (123), Elcho/White Lake (144), Three Lakes (150), Wausaukee (153) and Wabeno/Laona (182).

Membership rules require a 40-day window for schools involved in conference alignment plans to appeal the first consideration of the board before it takes final action.

Schools have until June 26, 2019, to file an appeal of the initial vote. Board will give final consideration of the plan at its meeting on Aug. 9, 2019.
