WIAA to decide on football conference changes

STEVENS POINT (WAOW) -- The WIAA Board of Control is set to vote on a plan that could change the way high school football conferences are organized across the state.

The plan would do away with the conference system and instead organize schools into zones.

The zones would be based on enrollment size. Currently, conferences are organized based on geographical regions.

Those opposed to the zone system say football teams will have to travel further to play similarly sized schools.

Those in favor say the zone system would level the playing field for small and large schools.

Newsline 9 has a crew at the meeting and will keep you up to date as the vote comes to a close.
