Another move for Truckers?
WIAA board to vote April 16
By Greg Seubert
Clintonville High School is one step away from moving to a different football-only conference.
The WIAA Board of Control is expected to take action Friday, April 16, on a proposed conference realignment plan that would take effect starting with the 2022 season.
That plan would move Clintonville, which competed in 2020 in the Packerland Conference after several seasons in the North Eastern Conference.
Clintonville would have the largest enrollment of any school in the Northwoods Conference with 494 students, followed by Oconto Falls (489), Northland Pines (389), Tomahawk (377), Menominee Indian (278), Crandon (247), Coleman (214) and Crivitz (202).
Also under the plan, six other area teams will remain in the same conference they competed in last year.
Waupaca and New London would stay in the Bay Conference; Manawa and Weyauwega-Fremont in the Central Wisconsin Conference-Large; Iola-Scandinavia in the Central Wisconsin Conference-Small; and Hortonville in the Valley Football Association.
• Bay Conference: Shawano (797), Seymour (700), Waupaca (665), New London (633), Xavier (533), Winneconne (521).
• CWC-Large: Spencer/Columbus Catholic (354), Nekoosa (354), Amherst (339), Wittenberg-Birnamwood (328), Stratford (323), Weyauwega-Fremont (266), Manawa (239), Shiocton (224).
• CWC-Small: Iola-Scandinavia (197), Wild Rose (186), Pacelli (177), Rosholt (168), Loyal (149), Assumption (127).
• Valley Football Association: Stevens Point (2,056), D.C. Everest (1,704), Wisconsin Rapids (1,563), Appleton West (1,508), Wausau West (1,391), Marshfield (1,212), Hortonville (1,104), Wausau East (1,014).
