The WIAA Board of Control will consider a pair of realignment proposals involving the Packerland, M&O and Northern Lakes Conferences at their May 20th meeting in Stevens Point. One proposal calls for a football only conference that would include Sturgeon Bay, Southern Door, Algoma, Kewaunee, Oconto, Peshtigo, Coleman and Niagara-Goodman-Pembine (Northern Elite) and the second proposal would have Peshtigo joining the current eight Packerland Conference schools for all other sports. Packerland Conference commissioner Terry Dooley explains….
In 2015, Packerland football teams played two league opponents twice plus three non-conference games to complete a nine game regular season.
As proposed, the new conference for football in the fall of 2017 would include 2015 Packerland champion Southern Door (6-0), M&O champion Coleman (7-0) and Northern Lakes champion Northern Elite (7-0). Travel times for area schools are sure to increase as the Sturgeon Bay to Niagara trip for football would be 270 miles round trip.
