The WIAA Conference Realignment Task Force Committee reviewed and forwarded proposals on potential football-only conference realignment to the Board of Control for final approval.
In our area Horicon/Hustisford would shift from the Capitol Conference to the Eastern Suburban Conference and Pardeeville would also move from the Eastern Suburban Conference to the Trailways.
The Badger Large Conference, which Beaver Dam plays in, would see a significant change. DeForest, Janesville Craig and Janesville Parker would all leave the league. DeForest would end up in the Badger Small, while the Janesville schools return to the Big Eight. The Sun Prairie, which is now Sun Prairie East would shift from the Big Eight to the Badger Large along with the new Sun Prairie West High School.
The Board of Control is set to take up the proposed changes at their March 5th meeting. The realignment would be effective for the 2022 season.
