The WIAA’s Board of Control is taking up a WIAA proposal that would eliminate conference play in high school football in favor of a district format. But that proposal has drawn heavy opposition around the state and was voted against unanimously by the board’s Advisory Council, 17-0 yesterday.
There’s also been a lack of support shown in previous votes by the Sports Advisory Committee and the Coaches Association Advisory Committee.
Those against the plan are by far in the majority. If the Board of Control follows those recommendations, then they’ll vote the plan down today, or at least recommend that the WIAA come up with an alternative plan. If it passes, the District play would go into affect next season.
