WIAA district plan shake-up gets thumbs up
Placeholder Image
Area football coaches and athletic directors support the concept behind the WIAA's football district proposal, but some fear the added travel costs could derail the idea and the plan should be put on hold. The plan, which the WIAA wants to implement next fall, would assign schools to eight-team districts based on their enrollment and only the top four teams in each district would qualify for the playoffs. The WIAA now uses a conference system. On a 6-1 vote at its annual meeting Dec. 29, the football coaches advisory committee approved the district proposal the WIAA revised last month with 2009-10 enrollment figures.The plan would have ramifications for seven area football teams. Monroe would move into a Division 3 district with Madison Edgewood, McFarland, River Valley, Sauk Prairie, Edgerton, Lodi and Evansville.
